Torre Marabino

Ispica, Sicily, Italy

The Relais Torre Marabino is a secluded oasis in the southeast of the beautiful island of Sicily. Olive trees, grapevines, the rustling of the Mediterranean and the warm temperature - here you immediately feel the cozy feeling of a summer vacation. The furniture and furnishings of the hotel are kept in Sicilian style and harmonize with the architecture of the Saracen tower, in which the guest rooms are housed. The shape of the building is an indication of the island's Arab heritage and a long history of invasions and aristocratic barons. Today you can feel the typical Sicilian hospitality with which the operators greet every new guest.

The accommodations are surrounded by a beautiful green garden with a pool and a terrace where breakfast is served. There is a playground for younger guests. In the cellar of the Saracen Tower are the wooden wine barrels, in which the winemakers of the winery belonging to the hotel cultivate the taste and smell of the Sicilian grapes for an exquisite drink. The wine tastes delicious with the dishes that are prepared in the restaurant: fish dishes, octopus, pasta and of course all sorts of delicious desserts - gourmets are in good hands here.

The warm, sometimes very hot Sicilian days, guests can either spend by the pool or on the sandy beach by the sea. The rural area is best explored on hikes. The nature reserve Vendicari and of course Etna, Europe's highest and still active volcano, are particularly worthwhile. In the area of Torre Marabino there are numerous historic baroque towns such as Noto, Syracuse, Modica, Scicli, Ragusa and Ibla, all of which are worth visiting.
