Slow travel lives here.

Southwestern Sicily is blessed with a glorious coastline, fantastic food, a cluster of splendid baroque towns and even Roman ruins. Wether you are a fan of "The Godfather" or "The Leopard"  you will understand that epic tales are invented in epic places. Let your mind wander around sleepy towns during seista hour and your earthy passions run wild across sun drenched landscapes. Refuel with handmade pasta and fresh from the boat seafood. Refresh your soul with the salt of the earth living and write your own saga.

the property

 Villa Zinna is a 16th century estate turned slow living paradise. This historic property has been lovingly restored with modern luxuries infused with a distinctly bohemian-artistic atmosphere.  Once belonging the Knights of Malta and still bearing their iconic cross, this active farmstead produces olive oil and carob harvested by local guys from the neighboring farms. Fifteen rooms and suites including single, double, and triple rooms can accommodate every kind of sleeping arrangement, and a great indoor-outdoor creative event space this venue is perfect for workshops, or friends and family reunions.

see, do, taste

Villa Zinna is ideally situated to taste all the delights of the region; Donnafugata castle, vineyards and wine tasting, swimming at sublime sandy beaches, or reflecting on the ecstasy of the baroque arabesque. So much to explore, so hard to pull away from the pool and terrace. How do you choose between lengthy lunches over looking the sea, or swimming in magical mineral pools sunk deep in white limestone gorges? What, when we must have aperitivos in the afternoons, and lots of giggling in between?  No matter what the day brings, memories will be made to last a lifetime.

Contact Travellur to book this special place with all the trimmings from private yacht to discounted airfare. Besides getting you the best prices on this venue, we can provide on-site guest management and personally guide/host your group, or put you in the experienced hands of local partners for guided excursion like snorkeling around roman shipwrecks or walking tours of Ragusa.
