Sicily: the first boutique resort of its kind in UNESCO World Heritage site of Val di Noto
Once an ancient masseria owned by Prince Nicolaci, Il San Corrado di Noto has been thoughtfully converted into an idyllic, all-suite retreat, following a meticulous 3 years transformation.
Launching in April 2022 for its first full season, Il San Corrado di Noto is the first boutique resort of its kind in Val di Noto, Sicily’s renowned UNESCO World Heritage destination.
The resort fills the gap of a stylish, independently owned destination for the discerning traveller in this historic part of Sicily. Located just outside Noto, featuring 26 suites and eight pool villas, the new hotel offers an abundance of space and privacy, paired with exceptional service and destination expertise, promising an authentic and personalised experience of the area.
A highlight of south-eastern Sicily, Val di Noto is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to eight historic towns, all built in the elaborate southern Baroque style. Il San Corrado Di Noto offers guests an elegant base from which to explore this lesser-known region and discover its rich history dating from 664 BC, gastronomy, culture and beaches.
The masseria’s 18th-century architecture has been sensitively preserved and heritage features intrinsic to the building’s history were prioritised during the restoration. Maintaining harmony between traditional and modern approaches, Architect Corrado Papa has drawn upon natural materials, including Modica stone and Guatemalan marble, which have been sculpted by local stonemasons and woodworkers to highlight the suites, public areas and original chapel, which dates back to 1836.
Surrounded by ancient citrus and olive groves, carefully protected during the property’s restoration, Il San Corrado di Noto is defined by its serene locale, discreet service and focus on heritage and wellbeing. The resort is home to two swimming pools, including an expansive 100m long heated pool – one of Sicily’s largest, as well as spa, fitness suite and tennis court.
Each spacious suite is complete with an outdoor patio, while the 1 and 2-bedroom pool villas offer flexible accommodation options for couples, friends, and families. Il San Corrado di Noto is home to two signature restaurants, Casa Pasta and Principe di Belludia, an upscale dining destination that showcases the region’s peerless seasonal produce.
Set to be Sicily’s most desirable boutique resort, Il San Corrado Di Noto is a celebration of Sicilian spirit and tradition in an exceptional destination.
