Overview

About the property

La casa del Sole is located in Punta Secca, a small village in the Province of Ragusa, the most beautiful part of the southeastern coast of Sicily and the ideal place to spend your holiday. It is just 50 meters away from the sea between golden sandy beaches and low cliffs, which appear in the film set of the TV series “Il Commissario Montalbano”.

Punta Secca is a typical fishing village, which was an old Arab port facing the African Sea. It has wonderful sunny weather but not too hot in summer and a mild climate in the winter months. Autumn and spring are particularly pleasant, especially the months of April, May, September and October when Sicilian nature is at its best and the seaside villages return to their peace and quiet, after the busy summer months. During this period it is possible to enjoy nice excursions and go trekking inland.

The golden sandy beaches of Punta Secca are all free of charge and safe, and are surrounded by low cliffs on the West and on the East. The old white lighthouse, built with dry stone at the beginning of the last century, dominates Punta Secca. This 40 meters lighthouse over towering the whole coastline is situated in the village main square.

Villa KAUKANA is immersed in the quiet of a 5000 square metres garden at a few steps from the sea. Each accommodation is independent and has its entrance in a park with a swimming pool, a play area, a small wood, a barbecue and a green area at just 250 metres from the sea. All the accommodation units are well equipped for a relaxing and highly comfortable stay: air-conditioning, a fully furnished kitchen, wide verandas and airy balconies, everything is organized to give you the best of comforts: beautiful furniture and fittings, external and garden furniture

Inside the villa a swimming pool with a big solarium is available for the guests, together with a small wood provided with benches, a picnic area with tables and barbecue, a play area for children, open-air showers, coin operated washing machines, bicycles, scooters, boats for fishing and sunbathing and a private parking space.

Three types of accommodation are available:

• “GIOVE” e “SATURNO” 4+1 beds with big verandas and direct access to the garden;

• “MARTE” 4+2 beds and a wide terrace, on the first floor;

• “VENERE” 2+1 beds with an airy balcony on the first floor.

There is a splendid sandy beach and a wonderful clean sea for pleasant days to be spent sunbathing, swimming, sailing, fishing and water skiing. Also, it is possible to rent surf boards for windsurfing. Villa KAUKANA provides car rental and scooter rental, transfer service to/from the airport and to/from train stations.

The important seaside resort of Marina di Ragusa is located just 5 km away from Punta Secca, it is provided with services and facilities for every need: banks, post offices, restaurants, discos, sport facilities and much more.

Along the coast at about 6 km, there is the nature reserve of the River Irminio, an unpolluted Mediterranean estuary oasis. The area around the river mouth with its wonderful sandy beaches is a hiding place for many species of birds. At about 3 km from Punta Secca towards the West, there is the big beach of Randello, a 2000 meters long sandy shore, where in the warm summer nights, sea turtles come to leave their eggs behind the woods, which can be considered a green lung for this part of the province and it is equipped with a picnic area.

The Province of Ragusa has recently been included by Unesco in the World Heritage List for its precious Baroque style buildings. It is literally a casket full of architectural, archeological and naturalistic treasures.

There are numerous tourist attractions: the Baroque style towns of Ragusa, Modica and Scicli, the ruins of the Great Greece city of Kamarina, its famous museum, and the hinterland of the Hyblean Mountains, characterized by deep “gorges” and its typical wild Mediterranean undergrowth, populated with rare species. Last but not least, the extraordinary “Cava d’Ispica” Park, a deep canyon with evidence of a prehistoric past life and many nature beauties.

And in Ragusa the breathtaking Baroque quarter of Ibla, built on a hill, is like a jewel embellished with the splendid gems of Baroque architecture: the cathedral of San Giorgio, the many spectacular churches and all the stately homes.

Modica is built on the two sides of a valley with its imposing cathedral of San Giorgio and it is famous for its culinary traditions.

Finally, the Northern part of the Province, located on a limestone plateau is an interesting destination for visits to mountain villages, with its pleasant mountain bike paths, trekking routes and country lanes for horse riding.

Just outside the province of Ragusa you can visit: the capital of Baroque style architecture Noto, Syracuse and the famous Taormina, Agrigento, Piazza Armerina, Selinunte and Segesta. They can all be reached in just two hours by car or by public transport.

The most mysterious and fascinating tourist attraction of South Eastern Sicily is Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe, whose beauty is really worthwhile seeing for the unforgettable emotions it can give you in every season of the year.

The Province of Ragusa stretches out from the plateau to the sea showing beautiful carob and almond trees, picturesque dry stonewalls and the austerity of the typical farmhouses, “le masserie”.

The local cuisine is a most exquisite welcome to the visitors, who can taste: ravioli, filled with ricotta, soft white unsalted Italian cheese, cavati, homemade pasta with tomato and meat sauce, the local aspic made with pork meat, homemade conserves, fruit, vegetables, and above all the ”Ragusano”, the most typical local cheese, and the fine wines from the Acate Valley. These are all D.O.C. products.

Furthermore, many religious festivals, which are still very important to the population, represent an important opportunity to get to know old unchanged traditions such as those concerning the Holy Week and other folk festivals of the twelve towns of the province.

There are many cultural and prestigious events such as classical theatre performances taking place every two years in the Greek Theater of Syracuse, the International Music Show “Ibla Grand Prize”, the Wine & Food Event “Cheese Art” and many fairs and festivals.
