C. da Malavita, Santa Croce Camerina 97017 Santa Croce Camerina (Ragusa)
At a few kilometres from the sea built in 1902, is located in the south-east of Sicily with a wonderful landscape framed by sea and rich in stretches of carob, almond, olive trees, near many tourist attractions and cultural and naturalistic sites.
A dry-stone wall driveway and two characteristic age-old carob trees, located at the entrance to the Casale, in front of a huge ancient portal, welcome the visitor. Here, in the 'baglio', there's a table with chairs, a big sunshade and, under the roof, a barbecue and an outdoor kitchen.
Inside the house there is the characteristic brick kitchen, connected to a large living room by a fireplace. Through a flight of stairs, you can reach the wooden intermediate floor, overlooking the living room, with two bedrooms.
The house is well furnished, thanks to the owners' good taste who, with some characteristic touches and some ancient furniture, enable the visitor to live the real Sicilian atmosphere of old times without forgoing today's modern comforts.
Near the farm there are a lot of interesting tourist sites, which have become famous thanks to the TV series 'Il commissario Montalbano'. These are: the Donnafugata castle, Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Scicli, which are all appreciated for their Sicilian Baroque architecture, belonging to UNESCO.
And also: Siracusa, Noto, Agrigento and, in a couple of hours, you can even reach Malta.

We stayed in this delightful farmhouse in May 2016. It is no longer a working farm but has been tastefully restored to give wonderful secluded accommodation for a vacation. The hosts Loredana and Guiseppe were welcoming and available to assist with any questions we might have. We loved the accommodation with the enclosed courtyard.
A car is a necessity with the local supermarket some km away in S Croce Camerina, the famous baroque towns of Ragusa, Modica and Noto within reach (9 kms) for a day trip and in the other direction seaside resorts close at hand. Be aware that the coastal plain has swathes of plastic coated greenhouses full of fruit and veg, which means the views are obscured.
We recommend this property, so long as seclusion is your choice of holiday. One comment of caution is that both we and the other guests found the venue difficult to find. Our satnav took us 5km away, however, Guiseppe soon led us to the farm once we had made contact. The venue is not signposted.
We stayed in May for 10 days with our little daughter in Casale del Benessere and the peace and quiet enjoyed. The farm is a bit remote, all around there are cows, horses and chickens in the fields. You definitely need a car to the nearest supermarket in the village or the sea to reach. The house was perfect for us, with full kitchen, bathroom and two separate bedrooms. The closed courtyard is beautifully furnished and equipped with table and BBQ. From the terrace you can see the sea. Loredana and Guiseppe were very friendly and gracious hosts and were approachable and immediately helpful with minor problems at any time. Also for breakfast Loredana has lovingly taken care of. We love to come back!

We were in November with our young daughter a few days at Casale del Benessere. The hosts were very friendly and also responded flexibly to a small change of date. The building is located on a quiet side road in the middle between fields, within sight of the sea. We stayed in the apartment 100sqm. This is very spacious and above all absolutely tasteful, stylish and clean equipped. Also, the courtyard was ideal for us, because it is all around complete, so that small children do not constantly have to keep in mind. In the courtyard there is a large dining area with barbecue and sink area. You can also go up on a small tower, where a small terrace is, to sit out and open views of the fields, the sea, palm trees enjoy. The house is equipped with everything you need. The hosts are also helpful when it comes to information about the area. The nearest town is reached in about 8 minutes by car, there are also large supermarkets. The only disappointment was that the landscape is completely built directly on the sea with large covered by plastic sheeting plantations, one sees the good in Google Maps (where the vegetables and fruits are grown for the Northern Europeans ...). In the house and yard so you can be wonderfully relaxing (day and night very quiet), for things must, however, take a piece - we find.
