Wanted a taste of beautiful south-eastern Sicily over a 4-days break, and thanks to Artemisia and its staff I got way more than what I bargained for.
Framed in the middle of the countryside, yet conveniently close to both Comiso's airport and Ragusa - Ibla, this resort made our stay really pleasant and relaxing. We were spoilt by its beautiful setting — peaceful, slow-moving countryside, surrounded by dry stone walls delimiting a bunch of orchards and well kept gardens; how restful it was to read a book sitting on that rocking two-seater, or on one of those stone benches carved under an almond tree. The large outdoor swimming pool was very enticing, despite it being the wrong season (February).
The room was beautiful: very spacious and comfortable, good quality queen-sized (I think) bed, lovely stone walls, floor spot-lights and a snazzy one-way (inside to outside) glass entrance door for extra-light at no expense of privacy. Bathroom was well equipped too with modern fixtures and finishings.
The inclusive buffet breakfast was generous in quantity and variety, with most (if not all) fresh items being typical of the area and locally sourced, and all being delicious.
The staff deserves a separate mention: Valentina and Noemi's courtesy, competence, helpfulness and friendliness were beyond any reasonable expectation; the personal touch and smile they invariably offered can't be listed on a hotel web-site or meta-search engine.
The perhaps only short-coming of this magnificent structure — i.e. the lack an on-site restaurant, whose absence I didn't even notice yet was remarked by a few previous guests — is caused by sluggishly processed paperwork and is being obviously resolved.
To conclude: lovely structure and setting, far-from-usual-staple breakfasts and attentative staff. I couldn't have asked for more. Hope to see you soon, Artemisia!
