The Donnafugata Golf Resort and Spa is situated on the sprawling Donnafugata Manor, close to Ragusa, Sicily, and under an hour from Sicily's main international airport. This discreet resort's elegant, low level buildings blend seamlessly into the Mediterranean landscape and are a model of historic preservation, with original details remaining intact through recent renovations and upgrades.
Set amid pristine beaches and historic conservation areas, the resort offers superb opportunities for sightseeing trips. Many of the neighbouring towns such as Ragusa, Modica, Ibla, Noto and Scicli are part of the UNESCO world heritage programme and remain beautifully preserved in the Sicilian Baroque style.
Donnafugata Golf Resort and Spa, as you might expect of a five-star facility, has just about every amenity you could wish for, with three restaurants, two bars, state-of-the-art fitness centre, swimming pool, hydro massage, Turkish bath and a full menu of spa treatments.
The spacious rooms are comprehensively equipped, and even standard rooms kitted out with wireless internet access, satellite TV, a personal safe, minibar and a personal refreshment centre.
Dining-wise, Il Carrubo restaurant is a real highlight with floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning views of the surrounding golf course and gardens and a menu that blends tradition and innovation, using classic Sicilian dishes with locally sourced ingredients as the basis for its culinary creations.
With a signature course designed by Gary Player and an 18-hole championship course by Franco Piras right on the doorstep, it's hard to imagine finding a better location for a golfing break in the Mediterranean region.
