Our structure is located in the heart of Ragusa, a baroque town that in 1693 was destroyed by a violent earthquake and then rebuilt on the slopes of Mount Lauro. The oldest part takes the name of Ragusa Ibla and houses ancient noble palaces and numerous baroque churches including the majestic Cathedral of San Giorgio. The splendid panorama is also visible from the panoramic staircase of the church of Santa Maria delle Scale from which you can see all the ancient Ragusa Ibla perched on the mountain adjacent to our structure. This staircase connects Ragusa Ibla with the Historic Center of Ragusa Superiore, or the part of the city rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693. Even the historic center of Ragusa Superiore is characterized by numerous churches and palaces in Baroque style, among which the Cathedral of San John the Baptist.

In addition to numerous sites of historical and artistic interest, the city of Ragusa is also famous for its peculiar eno-gastronomic traditions and for its proximity to the beautiful white sandy beaches that are just 20 minutes away. Ragusa is therefore a pleasant combination of art, history, culture, sea and eno-gastronomic traditions located in a landscape with a mild climate all year round and therefore ideal for your holiday at any time.

Our structure is located 10 minutes walk from Ragusa Ibla, following the aforementioned staircase, 2 minutes from the historic center of Ragusa Superiore, and 20 minutes from the sea (Marina di Ragusa). Very close to our structure are also bars, pubs, restaurants, pizzerias, supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, pharmacies, as well as the bus station (about 10 minutes away) and the Civil Hospital (about 5 minutes away). A 40-minute drive away are the interesting tourist sites of Noto, Siracusa and Marzamemi; The Baroque sites of Modica and Scicli are just a 20-minute drive away. A 15-minute drive away is the beautiful Donnufugata Castle.

Our structure is also located about 100 meters from the San Vito Bridge, from which you can admire the other two bridges of the city: the Ponte Vecchio (also called Ponte Padre Scopetta), which is the oldest and now only pedestrian, and the bridge of Via Roma (also called Ponte Nuovo). The three bridges overlook the Vallata Santa Domenica, the green lung of Ragusa, and give to those who look at them a unique panorama, which has given Ragusa the nickname "City of the three bridges".

For fans of the fiction "The Commissioner Montalbano", finally, the province of Ragusa is the right place to visit because its wonderful landscapes are the places where this fiction is set: we start from the famous house of Montalbano in Punta Secca, and then continue with the Castle of Donnafugata, which represents the home of the boss Balduccio Sinagra, to get to Ragusa Ibla, where many scenes are shot in external fiction, especially in front of the majestic Cathedral of San Giorgio. Also in Ragusa Ibla there is also the Circle of Conversation, where some scenes have been shot, and the Church of San Giuseppe in Piazza Pola which in the last episodes represented the headquarters of the Vigata police station. The tour of Montalbano also continues in the areas of Modica and Scicli. In Scicli, in particular, there is the Town Hall which was for many episodes the headquarters of the Commissariat of Vigata, inside which is the room of the Questore of Montelusa (which is actually the room of the Mayor). Finally, to complete the tour, we also remember the Fornace Penna, in Sampieri, in Pisciotto, a former brick factory destroyed by fire, which in the film was renamed "La Mànnara".
Breakfast, available at a supplement of € 4. 00 per person per day, includes the choice between: brioche and cappuccino / fruit juice, brioche with ice cream, brioche with granita, a pastry product and cappuccino / fruit juice. Espresso is always included whatever your choice.

However, in the room it is always possible for free coffee, herbal teas, water, biscuits, tarts and fruit juices.

Une belle et grande chambre bien équipée. Très bien situé car proche de la gare. Le seul point négatif est que cela manque un peu de charme.

La mia permanenza al Pura Vida é stata molto piacevole. Frank, il gestore della struttura, si é mostrato disponibile sin dai primi contatti telefonici. Accoglienza al check in molto calorosa e mi ha dato dei preziosi consigli su cosa fare e vedere in cittá. La camera dove ho pernottato si trova nel cuore di Ragusa Ibla a pochissimi minuti a piedi dal Duomo di San Giorgio. Nei pressi della struttura troverete bar, ristoranti e anche un piccolo supermercato tutti facilmente raggiungibili a piedi. La camera ed il bagno sono abbastanza ampi e sopratutto puliti, arredati con stile. Al piano di sopra troverete anche un angolo cottura fornito di tutto il necessario ed un balcone da dove si può ammirare un bellissimo scorcio della cittá. Consigliato assolutamente. Grazie ancora a Frank e sua moglie per la gentilezza e disponibilitá.

Abbiamo trascorso qui cinque giorni per vacanza e ci siamo trovati come a casa per la comodità dell'appartamento ben pulito e dotato di tutti i comfort dall'angolo cucina completo di stoviglie al letto comodissimo e l'opportunità per mio figlio di dormire in una camera separata, il bagno spazioso e luminoso e per la posizione centrale a due passi da San Giovanni e vie principali. Frank è stato un bravo padrone di casa e ci ha riservato un'accoglienza familiare che ci ha fatto sentire a nostro agio. È stato sempre disponibile quando lo abbiamo chiamato per informazioni sui luoghi da visitare o dove mangiare questo lo abbiamo apprezzato tanto. Alla nostra partenza ci ha fatto dono di una simpatica calamita in terracotta realizzata da lui e siamo rimasti sorpresi perché è un gesto semplice e sincero. Anche il nostro quattro zampe è stato ben accolto e Frank lo ha coccolato tantissimo insomma di meglio non potevamo aspettarci e lo ringraziamo ancora per l'ospitalità ricevuta.

The answer from the host:
È piacere ricevere così tanti complimenti!! È stato per me un piacere avervi nostri ospiti, e se posso farvi un complimento, a parte la simpatia ringraziarvi per come avete lasciato pulito e ordinata la camera, magari fossero tutti come voi!! A rivederci presto!

Non avrei potuto desiderare di più da un b&b. La camera quadrupla in cui ho soggiornato insieme alla mia famiglia durante la settimana di Ferragosto si è presentata esattamente come l'avevo vista in foto: ampia, fornita, funzionale, pulita, esteticamente piacevole a vedersi e soprattutto accogliente. Già dal primo momento in cui vi abbiamo messo piede l'abbiamo sentita un po' come se fosse casa nostra. E se ci siamo sentite a casa anche a chilometri di distanza dalla nostra è merito dei proprietari Frank e Alessia: persone gentilissime, disponibili, appassionate, attente a soddisfare qualunque richiesta, simpatiche e cordiali. Data la posizione strategica, il nostro soggiorno è trascorso alternando mare in diverse spiaggie che possono essere facilmente raggiunte con l'automobile, e visite tra le strade delle bellissime Ragusa, Ragusa Ibla e città vicine. Dopo questa esperienza, lascio un pezzetto del mio cuore in questo b&b, senza dubbio il migliore in cui io sia mai stata!

La nostra esperienza, la scorsa settimana, in questo B&B è stata molto soddisfacente sotto tutti i punti di vista: la stanza (in realtà un monolocale con camera da letto e cucinotto ed il bagno) con verandina è curata fin nel minimo dettaglio ed è molto attrezzata, dal phon a tutto l'occorrente per preparare un pranzo e, volendo, anche una seconda colazione. Per la colazione ci si reca in un bar distante dalla struttura di due minuti al massimo. Un fattore molto importante è anche la pulizia: tutto è perfettamente pulito. I proprietari sono davvero accoglienti, ospitali e mettono davvero una grande passione nel loro lavoro. Che dire tutto fantastico! Ve lo consiglio vivamente. Noi ci ritorneremo sicuramente. Caterina e Gigi.

Pura Vida Barocca is the result of a passion for travel and for the knowledge of new places in the world, which blends with that for our wonderful island called Sicily.

After traveling the world far and wide and having developed an interest in the knowledge of cultures completely different from ours, we decided to open this structure that will be able to make known to many people, coming from lands near and far, a bit of our world, our flavors, our traditions and our beautiful landscapes.

The name of the structure is a tribute to Costa Rica, a country where the term "pura vida" is used, as well as a greeting, also as a wish for a simple and quiet life, free from stress and constraints, where everyone does what he loves and spends every day serenely. To this end we have added "baroque" to recall the architectural style that characterizes our land and that manages to transform every single village into a glimpse of art and culture.

Inside our structure the names of the 3 rooms are also a tribute to some of the most beautiful countries we have visited in recent years:
Ko Lipe, the beautiful unspoilt island of southern Thailand on the border with Malaysia, has captured our hearts for its beautiful white sand beaches and its emerald green sea. At Ko Lipe there are no means of transport, with the exception of tuk-tuks used for taxis for tourists, for which you walk only on foot, always surrounded by a spectacular landscape worthy of a real paradise on earth. The lances, typical boats of the place, and the friendly local people, blend harmoniously with the surrounding landscape, creating a perfect balance between the works built by man and nature.

Manhattan, the beating heart of New York, which represents America and Western culture, the world where everything is possible and everyone can realize their dreams, has impressed us with its grandeur and majesty. Nothing is on a human scale, but everything is built to amaze and fascinate. Flying over Manhattan with a helicopter was one of the most beautiful experiences because just looking at it from above you can understand the grandeur and majesty of the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, symbols of an increasingly modern and advanced civilization.

Over the years we have combined the passion for travel to another of our great passion: the bike. This passion has led us to cross the whole of Italy on two wheels, starting from our Ragusa - the southernmost province of Italy - and making stops in Calabria, Puglia, Umbria, Trentino and Valle d'Aosta, and then trespassing, passing through the beautiful winding streets of the Alps, in Germany, Austria, Slovenia and Switzerland.

We hope to convey to our guests this passion for travel, with the hope that they can also fall in love with Sicily, and in particular the province of Ragusa.

We hope many of you will come,
Alessia and Frank.

Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
