Offering the discerning traveler an authentic insight into the Sicilian way of life through wellness experiences, gourmet food, wine and unrivaled views of the Sicilian countryside.

Italian island escapes do not get much better than Il San Corrado di Noto, a transformed ancient Masseria in Val di Noto, Sicily’s serene UNESCO World Heritage destination. Il San Corrado di Noto is the first boutique resort of its kind in the region and the perfect option for travelers looking for a slice of Sicilian authenticity, fabulous food, exceptional service and an abundance of space and privacy. With heritage and well-being at its heart, the resort is home to just 26 suites and eight pool villas, two swimming pools, including an expansive 100m long heated pool as well as a spa, comprising a hammam, Finnish sauna, frigidarium, solarium and relaxation space, fitness suite and tennis court.

Serving sophisticated glamor at its very best, the property is steeped in elegance, total privacy, contemporary Baroque charm and bright and spacious design. Each spacious suite is complete with an outdoor patio, while the one- and two-bedroom pool villas offer flexible accommodation options for couples, friends and families. Guests can spend their days relaxing by one of the two outdoor swimming pools while savoring the peace and quiet, indulging in a treatment at the Resort Spa, dining on long, languid lunches of freshly made pasta at Osteria Casa Pasta, tasting the finest Sicilian gastronomy at destination dining Principe di Belludia and sampling fine wine at the resort wine cellar, Cantina. Active aficionados can soothe the mind, body and soul with an outdoor private yoga class while enjoying the stunning views out over the surrounding countryside or discover the lesser-known region and its history dating from 664 BC.

Other experiences include wine, cheese and olive tasting, as well as cooking classes and truffle hunting. Perfect for sun-drenched days, the resort also operates a private beach club in the summer months which is located a short drive from the property, accessible via a complimentary shuttle service.
