The complex has a pool and is surrounded by groves of olive and other... More

Country hotel Casina Grotta di ferro is a fantastic hotel. Don't expect a lot of nightlife, since it is in a remote location. But if you are looking for tranquility and peacefulness, this is your place. It also means you need a car to get here. The hotel has a lovely view. The staff is super friendly. We had a... More

We arrived tired from exploring lots of cities and towns. We drove down this wonderful country farm drive into another world. Olive trees, stone buildings, and courtyards, stillness and beauty. A carob tree in the middle of the outdoor space, covered sheltered areas, open areas, a large pool which we enjoyed using, a lovely long garden area, and our own... More

I stayed at Casina Grotta di Ferro for a few nights on a 2 week tour of Sicily. Casina Grotta di Ferro was a little more removed than some of the other places we visited in more touristy cities, but I wanted to try an agriturismo and I wanted to visit Santa Croce Camerina because that's were my family is...

As we love visiting our neighbour island especially for it’s exquisite food, a friend of ours' recommended ‘Casina di Grotta di Ferro’ in the vicinity of Ragusa as a base to visit the area. So off we went to our destination. As we were approaching the ‘Casina’ we could see that the countryside was very dry, hot and arid with... More

We stayed with a party of four during 5 days, for the first time in this region. Franco and his wife Carmela and the rest of his team made it a very nice experience - providing nice breakfast at any time in the morning, a relaxed atmosphere, well kept beautiful pool and terraces, wide views over the surrounding hills on...

We loved this hotel. It's a beautifully restored country house situated on the plain with views all the way to the sea. The rooms are simple but beautiful and incredibly clean. The gardens and pool are just perfect. There is even a separate kitchen building with facilities for the guests to use if they would rather eat in for the... More

What a place, what a family and what an environment! Absolute relaxation in an authentic Sicilian house. Signor Franco and Signora Carmela with their hospitality are few of the rare people to find. Friendly and cosy environment, beautiful and very well taken care of rooms, amazing pool and views to die for. 100% satisfaction and very highly recommended! Will definitely... More
