Opened in April 2022, Il San Corrado di Noto is the first boutique resort of its kind in Val di Noto, Sicily’s renowned UNESCO World Heritage destination. Once an ancient masseria (large farm) owned by Prince Nicolaci, Il San Corrado di Noto has been converted into an all-suite retreat following a meticulous three-year transformation.

The resort is the first stylish, independently owned property for the upscale traveler in this  historic part of Sicily. Located just outside the town of Noto, the property offers 26 suites and eight pool villas, with an abundance of space and privacy.

 

Located in southeastern Sicily, Val di Noto is home to eight historic towns, all built in the elaborate southern Baroque style. The Il San Corrado Di Noto property makes for a comfortable and stunning base from which to explore the area’s cuisine, culture, beaches and history, which dates from 664 BC.

The masseria’s 18th-century architecture has been beautifully preserved, with architect Corrado Papa drawing upon natural materials, including Modica stone and green marble imported from India. Local stonemasons and woodworkers sculpted the green marble and Modica stone to highlight the suites, public areas and original chapel.

 

Surrounded by ancient citrus and olive groves, Il San Corrado di Noto offers two swimming pools, including a 128-foot heated pool, as well as a spa, fitness center and tennis court. The resort also operates a private beach club in the summer months, located a short drive from the property and accessible via a complimentary shuttle service.

Each suite comes with an outdoor patio, and the one- and two-bedroom pool villas offer various accommodation options for couples, friends and families. There are two restaurants on site, Casa Pasta and Principe di Belludia, an upscale venue destination showcasing the region’s seasonal produce.

 

Rates at Il San Corrado di Noto start from €590 ($621) per night on a B&B basis. The hotel, located an hour’s drive from Catania Airport, is open mid-April to early November.
