The Charming Donna Coraly Resort—Where History & Traditions Meet in Perfect Harmony

Dreaming of Italy? Sicily awaits, and I’m excited to take you on a journey to Donna Coraly Resort, just south of Syracusa. As you step into this ancient Sicilian villa, now a fortified farm called Masseria, you’re greeted with warmth and immersed in its rich history.

The story of Donna Coraly Resort intertwines with the Grande family, particularly Noblewoman Coraly Grande Sinatra, a prominent figure in Syracuse’s twentieth-century socio-cultural scene. Her legacy lives on through Lucia, who has breathed new life into this charming location, preserving its refinement and elegance.

Another chapter of history unfolded here during World War II when the armistice of Cassibile was signed on September 3, 1943, in the Vigneto delle Vignazze. This significant event, marking the end of hostilities between Italians and Anglo-Americans, is commemorated by a memorial stone in the Botanical Garden.

Donna Coraly Resort boasts 10 uniquely furnished rooms, each with its own private garden or patio adorned with nineteenth-century family furniture, artworks, and ceramics from Caltagirone, creating a harmonious blend of history, elegance, and Sicilian charm.

During your stay, indulge in relaxation by the swimming pool or in the heated bio-pond of the Botanical Garden. Then, venture out to explore nearby attractions such as Ortigia, Marzamemi, Noto, Modica, Scicli, Ragusa, and Taormina, all within easy reach.

Culinary delights await at La Zaituna Restaurant, housed within the ancient oil mill. Chef Vincenzo Di Falco and his team craft innovative dishes using fresh, local ingredients, complemented by exceptional Sicilian wines.

Looking to celebrate a special occasion? Donna Coraly offers idyllic settings for weddings, honeymoons, and events. The Orangery, nestled within the spacious park, is a charming venue suitable for any season.

Having experienced Donna Coraly Resort‘s exceptional service firsthand, I can attest to its quality. This slice of Sicilian paradise is eagerly awaiting your arrival.
