This is Virginia Arezzo's family home, built in the 1900s on the site of the old ruined castle - hence the name. Much of the furniture dates from the same era and there are elegant painted ceilings in the reception rooms. Situated right at the top of Ragusa Ibla, Castello Vecchio has wonderful views over the city - and loads... More

My husband and I stayed in this lovely and authentic former castle...now a family home. Virginia was a perfect hostess....helpful with answers to our every question. Since parking is such a premium in the hill town, Castello Vecchio afforded ample parking and a perfect location from which to walk and discover Regusa. Large and comfortable room overlooking the cathedral dome.... More

We had a great time at castello vecchio. Virginia was an exceptional host. She is very kind, helpfull and interested. Breakfast was also great, including a delicious homemade pie. The castello itself is beautiful and full of history. It's central location makes it an ideal place for trips inside and outside Ragusa. We would warmly recommend the place to anyone.... More

We had a lovely stay in a beautiful villa. It was a privilege to stay there, in an atmosphere that brings Visconti's film 'Il Gattopardo' ('The Leopard') to mind. Any photographs of the house simply do not do it justice. Nothing was too much trouble for the Signora who owns the house, who helped make our stay so enjoyable. Such... More

Castelvechio is situated on the top of the hill of Ragusa Ibla, with parking facility in front, not a luxury in this medieval part of town. Our host kindly called us ahead to inform us of the different activities related to the Holy Friday and arranged for a guided visit the next day. The breakfast served for all guests at... More

Very nice b&b, comfortable, easy parking, nice rooms, beautiful view of the dome of the church of Saint George. The owner is a very nice and cordial person. Excellent breakfast with some typical sicilian food products.

This B&B is a quite large and impressive house at the very top of Ragusa Ibla, the older and generally more interesting (to a tourist) of the two Ragusas. While not exactly easy (my GPS kept trying to route me through pedestrian-only streets), finding the B&B is not difficult. As long as you keep gaining elevation, you'll start to see... More

The Castel Vecchio or "Old castle" B&B is a large house built on the site of a castle that was destroyed in the 18th Century earthquake that destroyed much of the region. The "new" house was built by the current owners grandfather in the 1800's and would have been an amazing "high society" house in it's day. It commands the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the top of Ragusa Ibla, on the highest part of the city, the B&B is located in a noble building on the ruins of the Cabrera's Castle, the Counts of Modica and Lords of Ragusa. In a very central position, with the University in front of it and through its windows it seems that you can almost touch the S. Giorgio's dome. Four wedding rooms and a single bedroom, with a distinguished furnishing, an excellent breakfast will offer our clients to enjoy themselves and relax. ... more   less
