On the road from Ragusa leading to the sea, Poggio del Sole Resort [Sun's Hill Resort] dominates the charming Hyblean plateau amid a mix of rugged valleys and hills, carob and olive trees, and a thick lattice of dry stone walls.
At the midpoint of the major centres in the Noto valley, the structure was built before the Baroque period, long enough ago at a time when people live their lives amidst the true nature of a historic land.
The "Poggio del Sole Resort," originated in 1879 as an old - fashioned rural residence, was carefully restructured and expanded in 2006 by the present owners
The old fashioned building hosts three suites, the refined "Dell'Angelo" [Of the Angel] restaurant, the "Degli Archi" [Of the Arches] conference room and a Lounge Bar.
Newly constructed is the more informal "Osteria" [carvery-room] with its stone oven and rooms.
To complete the structure there are an open-air swimming-pool with Jacuzzi corner and the garage
The Poggio del Sole Resort is the fruit of careful restoration work on the original residence of the 1800's and it's characteristic rural annexes: the elegant master house, the food provisions store, the barn, the stables and the guest quarters.
Once owned by Sir. Iacono, built as his summer residence with the attached farmhouse in 1879, the Poggio del Sole Resort was beautifully restored and opened for hospitality with rooms and suites.
