For a peaceful countryside getaway just a stone's throw from the sea, all year round in Sicily, we recommend staying at L'Araucaria, a small estate located in the province of Ragusa, between Santa Croce Camerina and Punta Secca, just 2 km from the sea. Here, you can choose from a variety of mini-apartments, including studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.

L'Araucaria offers its guests various facilities, including a parking lot, a swimming pool with a sun deck equipped with loungers and chairs, a large shaded area, a children's play area with a playhouse, slide, swing, and see-saw, a barbecue area with a gazebo furnished with a table and chairs, a tennis court, a 5-a-side football field with synthetic turf, an 8-a-side football field with natural grass, a padel court, a club house with table tennis and table football, and a shared laundry room with iron and ironing board.

Upon request at the time of booking, umbrellas for the beach are available free of charge. In addition, L'Araucaria offers ample furnished green spaces and is perfect for meetings, small banquets, and birthday parties.

The apartments, furnished in a rustic, simple but comfortable style, are equipped with a large pergola with a table and chairs, air conditioning and/or heating and ceiling fans in the sleeping area, TV, and free wireless internet with a hotspot system.

The studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments are internally composed differently, but all have a kitchenette, a table with chairs, a bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. The studios have a single room of about 25 square meters with a living room with a kitchenette and a double bed. The one-bedroom apartments are about 35 square meters and have a living room with a kitchenette, 1 or 2 beds, 1 double bedroom, and a bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. The two-bedroom apartments are about 45 square meters and have a living room with a kitchenette, table and chairs, 2 double bedrooms with the possibility of adding a fifth bed, and a bathroom with a shower and hairdryer.

L'Araucaria: the perfect place for a vacation where you feel at home!

La tenuta è il posto ideale per chi vuole fare delle vacanze all'insegna del relax e dello sport a contatto con la natura. Si esce fuori dai ritmi e dai rumori della città, ma a soli 3 minuti di macchina si è in spiagge bellissime con lidi attrezzati. Nella zona comune c'è una macchinetta che fa ottimo caffè. I proprietari sono gentili e disponibili ad ogni esigenza. Consigliatissima, soprattutto se si parte con amici per poter sfruttare al meglio i vari servizi e campetti a disposizione della struttura.

Ci siamo trovati molto bene, proprietari gentilissimi, disponibili a qualsiasi richiesta di aiuto. Luogo tranquillo, relax e divertimento in piscina. Nelle vicinanze a circa 2, 5 km si arriva a punta secca, dove c'è un bel tratto di spiaggia e si può visitare la casa del commissario Montalba o (serie TV itali).

I gestori sono molto gentili e disponibili. Letti comodi e silenzio di notte, ottimo per chi vuole riposare bene. Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Qualche problema con la doccia e sostituirei il mobiletto porta stoviglie sotto il lavandino.

Luogo pulito tranquillo e gestore molto simpatico e affabile, luogo ideale per soggiorni lunghi e rilassanti a contatto con la natura e il mare. In compagnia di molti amici ci si divertirebbe vista la disponibilità delle strutture atte a praticare sport, molto soddisfatto della scelta, ci tornerò.

La struttura è molto curata, la gestione altrettanto. I titolari sono molto ospitali ed attenti alle esigenze dei clienti, nello stesso tempo sanno rispettare la privacy degli ospiti. Il rapporto qualità prezzo è davvero ottimo. Grazie Pietro.
