Giarratana, Province of Ragusa, Sicily
Paradiso is a rustic country house set on high grounds with magnificent views of the Sicilian countryside and the Iblean Mountains. On the one side it is within walking distance from a typical quiet rural village which has all amenities. On the other side it is seconds away from a huge forest with monumental pine trees.

This is a protected park which enjoys safe walking/rambling/cycling paths; picnic area; bbq area; animal reserve. Archaeological remains can be visited in the area. A lovely park for children to play in is found at the edge of the village.

The village is quaint, neat, well equipped with shops that provide all requirements. Health centre, bank, pharmacy, bread shop, mini-markets, green grocer shops, gelateria, restaurants, pizzeria, newspaper shop.... the perfect little Sicilian village is waiting to be discovered along...

We stayed in this property for three days with a group of friends - there were 6 adults and 1 child in total. The location of the property is ideal for relaxing and enjoying the nature around you, very peaceful and quiet. We had cars so we managed to explore quite a bit as there are a lot of places...

Management response:

Many thanks for your review of our property. I am glad your experience at Paradiso rendered many happy memories & positive moments for you and your family.

Self catering and must have a car to drive around..ragusa modica and catania. Ideal for this time of the year enjoying the peace, the greenery and walks to the near by woods.

This lovely cottage is situated just on a promontory area with left side overlooking the view of the mountains and the village of Giarratana, front side terraced fields full of olive trees and right side overlooking a river valley full of high forest trees. The cottage has all the facilities you may need need and it is within walking distance...
