Nestled between the Hyblaean Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, the Masseria della Volpe is a historic 19th-century farm house turned luxury boutique hotel.
The house was originally used for harvesting olives and citrus fruits and it occupies an idyllic position, surrounded by olive groves and carob trees. This typically Sicilian manor has maintained much of its rustic charm with local white stone used in accordance with traditional Sicilian building techniques and traditional tiles adding a splash of colour.
Rooms and suites are spread across the ground and first floor, some facing the inner courtyard with others having their own balcony or terrace. A crisp white and blue colour theme runs through the rooms and plenty of natural light makes them bright and airy.
The restaurant uses local, organic produce to create beautiful Sicilian dishes served alongside Italian wines from their well stocked cellar. Guests can choose to dine in the dining room or on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool and the Noto Valley.
The small spa features a hot tub, Turkish bath, ice fountain and waterfall and massages are on offer to help you relax and unwind. The heated outdoor swimming pool is the perfect place to enjoy the peace and quiet and admire the spectacular views. For guests with children, there is a play area with games. There is also a floodlit tennis court, a small gym, a volleyball court and a bocce playing area.
Solar energy and rainwater
The restoration project was carried out with the greatest respect for the original materials and has maintained the enduring connection with the Val di Noto countryside. The hotel has drastically reduced the use of plastic and produces a large proportion of its own energy (much of the electricity that powers the Masseria comes from the solar panels that cover the hotel’s car parking area). The Masseria also reuses rainwater for irrigation. All in line with the organic philosophy, with respect for the land and the nature tides.
Growing their own produce
The Masseria della Volpe estate includes a citrus grove with more than 1,000 citrus trees, an orchard and garden bed, where an abundance of fruit and vegetables grow in harmony with the changing seasons. These ingredients, produced by the Secolo 21 farm are used to prepare the organic breakfast that is offered to guests every morning. The Codarossa Restaurant also uses the estate’s organic produce.
