Nested on the gently rolling hills of Noto, in the midst of the enchanting south-oriental Sicilian countryside, between the baroque city and the sea, Country House Villadorata, our charming summer residence sits on an organic farm extending over 16 hectares planted with hundred-year-old olive trees, almond trees,citrus and vineyards cultivated according to biodynamic methods. Originally a winepress dating the 18th century, its renovation was carefully studied to merge in the nature while offering the traveler a resolutely contemporary experience with a "vintage" touch for the choice of furniture, the result being luxury, elegant, timeless and mostly peaceful.
Aqua Madre: Our swimming pool, besides its organic shape evoking the natural ponds of the area, is supplied with fresh water filtered by a special mixture ofmineral salts, magnesium, potassium, iodine and mineral nutrients (also called “salts of life”), the virtues of which are renown since Antiquity and which reproduce the wholesome virtues of thermal waters.
Ethical Energy Farm: Country House Villadorata opted from the beginning for self-sufficiency in terms of energy and thanks to sophisticated green technologies (photovoltaic, thermal solar energy) it manages to produce most of its own electricity and water supply.
For centuries, residence of the illustrious Villadorata princely family, the palace, with its historical suites, is the ideal context to appreciate the charm of the Val di Noto where time left its track in the stones of the churches, convents and palaces today part of the suggestive landscape of the area. Between the crystalline blue waters of the Vendicari Nature Reserve and the rich golden hue of the historic monuments, our charming hotel constitutes an inescapable “relais” worth the “Grand Tour” of the last centuries.
