La Moresca

The Maison de Charme...

A merging and mingling of history is present in every detail of La Moresca. This Maison de Charme has 15 bedrooms, each room is unique. Original furniture, light floating curtains, and photographs immortalising glimpses of Sicilian life, sometimes in colour, sometimes in black and white, bring La Moresca’s philosophy of authenticity to life.
Striking qualities of each room extend beyond photographs to paintings, tile floors that were salvaged during renovation, and a mix of minimalist and traditional styles. The presence of artworks by two locals artists, the photographer Giuseppe Leone and the painter Giovanni Lissandrello are in harmony with an atmosphere of authentic Sicily.

La Moresca offers a room and breakfast service, allowing you to begin your day in the serenity of the courtyard or the privacy of the room. Serving breakfast only, you are encouraged to discover the varied culinary delights in Marina di Ragusa and beyond. The staff would be happy to make restaurant recommendations to suit any occasion.

The tower solarium is the crown of the building, and offers a balcony where you are welcome to sunbathe or gaze over the tiled rooftops to the sea. From your perch, the ringing of church bells will leave you enchanted.

Beyond the oasis of La Moresca you will discover the splendours of Baroque and neo-classical architecture, the remains of the Siculi, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine peoples, and the intoxicating flavours of Sicily.
