RELAIS TORRE MARABINO
RELAIS TORRE MARABINO is an intimate and romantic resort, the ideal spot from which to discover the magic of southern Sicily’s baroque cities and gorgeous natural landscape. Located just off the southern coast of Sicily, Torre Marabino is a short drive from many of the region’s most notable destinations, including the lovely cities of Ragusa, Modica, Noto, Siracusa, and Scili, as well as some of the region’s most beautiful beaches, including the Vendicari nature reserve. Torre Marabino's connection to its natural surroundings and dedication to comfort have withstood the test of time; the classic southern hospitality of the torre dates back to the nineteenth century, when the stone watchtower provided accommodations to Sicilian farmers on the historic “wheat road.” Set on a working organic farm, the relais remains firmly connected to its agrarian roots, and feels distinctly Mediterranean with productive olive, fig, and citrus trees scattered across the grounds.
The visual focal point of this attractive resort is surely the stunning infinity pool and solarium area with views of the sea. Each of the seven rooms is named after one of the wines produced by Torre Marabino, and invokes the rustic style of the relais, but are exceedingly well kept and well equipped for the most discerning guests. As one might suspect from its onsite farm, each meal at Torre Marabino is a treat. Whether enjoying a breakfast of homemade jams, fresh fruits, and local cheeses on the sun-drenched terrace, or sitting down to a five-course tasting menu led by an impressively knowledgeable staff, guests leave the table feeling pampered and utterly charmed by the hospitality and the delightful traditional Sicilian cuisine complimented by wines from the house cantina.
