“5 Star hospitality at 3 star prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We booked a couple of days last month at short notice, encouraged by the fantastic reviews on here. Thanks TA, it was a delight. The greeting could not be warmer and the room was large, comfortable, clean and tasteful. There was a little welcoming carafe of local wine with snacks, which was a lovely touch, and (please note fellow Brits) the kettle and selection of teas was a nice surprise. Bathroom was huge with a great shower and nice toiletries, and the bucolic location makes for a wonderful nights sleep.

Breakfast was fantastic, the usual you would expect, with eggs and bacon, plus a tempting variety of home baked sweet treats. Between sightseeing activities we managed some time by the stunning pool (with spa) and had a huge amount of fun taking a spin on their vintage bicycle rickshaw. Bikes are also available, plus gym equipment and barbecue facilities.

All of this is enough for us to consider Artemisia the loveliest of all hotels we stayed in during our Sicilian trip. However, the utter charm and helpfulness of the team here take the resort into a different league. They simply cannot do enough to make your stay pleasurable. Our last morning was my birthday and the girls came out onto the terrace singing Happy Birthday with the most beautiful cake you could ever wish for. It was a joyful end to a short but perfect stay and a memory I will always cherish.

We are loathe to make any criticism of this place, but you do really need a car as there is no restaurant on site. However, they have not been open long and we understand that they are planning to build one, which will then truly make the Artemisia the perfect retreat. We would love to return for a longer stay in a year or two to see how the resort, and the gardens, have blossomed.

If you can't already guess, we cannot recommend the Artemisia and their hospitality highly enough. Book here if you can.

We stayed at Artemisia for two weeks at the beginning of June. Our plan was to base ourselves in what promised to be an interesting area of Sicily, and to enjoy the benefits of culture, sea, sand, countryside and peace. All our expectations were met- and more. Artemisia was comfortable, calm and so welcoming, and the staff were totally professional and utterly pleasant and warm.
Breakfast was excellent- yes, we got very used to eating a range of delicious home-baked cakes and tarts for breakfast, with freshly made coffees, in addition to fruit, eggs, bacon etc, with a variety of breads and croissants. There was also a constant supply of home-made jams, local honeys, and local delicacies to enjoy. We rarely needed lunch! Freshly made coffee was always available on request.
We especially enjoyed exploring Ragusa Ibla, and returned on several evenings to eat at trattoria which were recommended by the well informed staff. Eating out every night can become a chore, however, and we decided to try the barbeque at Artemisia, which was most enjoyable. The staff prepared the charcoal etc, and provided condiments, oil and vinegar etc, so all we had to do was buy our food in the local supermarket- and this turned out to be a treat. Do have a go if you stay here. The food was delicious, and the prepared table under a spreading carob tree just perfect to relax and drink the local wine after the sun set.
The pool area is one of the best we have ever experienced, and was meticulously maintained. The setting is tranquil, surrounded by rose gardens and peace.
We slept well in our spacious, airy room, waking to the sound of birds and cattle- utter peace.

From the moment we arrived unti the moment we left 8 days later, the thing that really stands out about the Artemisia is how great the people who work there are. They are unfailingly cheerful, friendly and helpful. In particular, for us, Valentina deserves a special mention. She made a number of dinner suggestions and reservations for us, all of which were very good. She also helped with printing boarding cards and arranged for us to have an early breakfast on our last day for which we are very grateful.

We had 'the residence' which is a detached cottage of stone, slightly apart from the main building. It has a double bed on a mezzanine level, and on the ground floor a spacious living room, with sofa bed, dining table and chairs and a kitchenette. There is also a very nice shower room. On arrival there were little gifts of wine and some pasta and pesto in case we didn't feel like eating out on our first night. Everything was spotless, our towels and sheets were changed every day too.

Breakfast is a very good spread of breads, croissants, many different cakes, cheeses, ham, salami, fresh fruit etc. There was also freshly squeezed orange juice on request, in addition to the usual carton variety.

The pool area is well appointed and kept very clean. A great place to relax. For the more energetic there are exercise bikes, 'normal' bikes and even an underwater bike and treadmill. In fact there is also a four seater carriage style bike that kept some of the noisier English children occupied and away from the pool area (a blessed relief).

The hotel is well located to tour the South East of Sicily, including the many Montalbano locations and you can even get a guide from the hotel on where some of the more famous scenes were shot. You would need a car to travel out to eat in the evening and it's worth noting the hotel doesn't have a restaurant.

Finally it's a really quiet spot with no road noise. We would certain return.

Eveything looked new and well kept. The rooms are spacious and confortable, the bathroom is good and the service was excellent - the people were very friendly and did not hesitate to give us various tips on the region. For us, it was perfect because we would do day trips to the nearby cities.

Delightful place.
Easy to find, easy to park. Service was very friendly and with a smile.
The room was very spacious and modern, extremely well equipped with bed, sofa and table, and very clean. Equipment included hair dryer, safe deposit box and a kettle (and tea)!
Buffet style breakfast was very good indeed in both quality and variety including a gluten free option in addition to the usual pastries. There was a swimming pool, free table football, free table tennis, free cycle hire. Even so, the resort was quiet and not crowded.
We felt more comfortable here than anywhere else we stayed in Sicily and wished we had stayed longer.
Downside? It's 2 kilometers to the nearest restaurant/pizzeria.

I gave everything 5/5 except 4/5 for location, but if you've got a car, everything is easily accessible. The rooms are spotless, nicely decorated, with a kettle and a selection of teas. Comfortable, the people are lovely and welcoming, and the breakfast is fantastic, really really good. There's also a swimming pool, which lights up and changes colour at night. It was too cold to use it when we were there, unfortunately, but it'd be wonderful on a hot day. We only stayed one night, but I'd definitely stay again.

This is an outstanding bed and breakfast property, a few kilometres outside Ragusa, but we found it very easily, it's well signed from the main roads.
We were welcomed warmly by the smart ladies who seemed to be running the place and shown to the most enormous room we've ever had, more of a mini-house! We had a single bed, table and chairs, a kitchen area and a bathroom with a huge shower downstairs, and a massive double bed and a TV upstairs on a mezzanine. The pillows were the most comfortable I've slept on for a long time, the bed was very comfortable and the sheets were of a very good quality.
There is a big pool with plenty of sunloungers and more shaded places to sit, a few facilities for children and some exercise bikes. Even though it was only mid April, it would have been rude not to use the pool!
Even though there isn't a restaurant on the site, we were given directions to a pizzeria.
The breakfast was delightful, a mixture of Sicilian sweet things, many home made, and meats, cheeses and eggs.
Our only regret was that we were only there for 1 night, it's somewhere which could tempt us back to Sicily in the warmer months.
