Pietre Nere Resort
|Peace, refinement and care for details in the Modica countryside|
Pietre Nere Resort, which lies on the slopes of the Hyblaean Mountains, at a short distance from the prehistoric settlements of Cava Ispica, represents a pleasant oasis plunged in the peace and quiet of the countryside surrounding Modica, among little pitches of land bordered by the typical dry-stone walls; thanks to its strategic position, it also represents the perfect starting point to discover the baroque side of the Val di Noto. Pietre Nere Resort is easily accessible from any direction: the ideal solution to immerse yourself in the enchantment of the area.
Pietre Nere Resort is a new building with wide and bright spaces which will surprise you for its refinement and the care for details. Through the big glass-windows of the ground floor, you get to the winter garden, an elegant space where every idle moment of our guests' stay will be turned into a total relax.
Pietre Nere Resort offers many different opportunities to those who wish to spend a restful stay. The hosts will enjoy the solarium, furnished with a special care for design, the swimming pool with a whirlpool bath, as well as the bright reading room and its comfortables sofas. At disposal, a tennis and five-a-side football ground, surrounded by the typical greenery of the Mediterranean scrub.
The hotel has twenty-eight rooms on two floors and two big suites set in a separated building, which is the result of the renovation of a pre-existent rural edifice located in front of the hotel. A common feature is the chromatic choice: white, as a symbol of elegance and purity; the only clashing element is the bathroom wall which is covered by an oak boiserie.
Modern and functional furniture, beds with sommier and white leather bedhead, furniture and interior design items and refined linen, they all contribute to bring about a sophisticated environment. All the rooms are fully equipped with bathroom with shower, air-conditioning, minibar, safe, lcd television, satellite TV, internet connection. The electronic badge ensures a top security. Twenty-four-hour room service.
The facilities of the hotel are completed by a modern restaurant which will allow our guests to savour the traditional specialities of the Sicilian gastronomical tradition, which are reinvented in a modern way. The catchy suggestions of our chef will meet the most exigent tastes. Key points of our cuisine are the accurate choice of the raw materials, selected among the Sicilian and national excellences which are produced by certified farms, and the great care for the periodicity. The bond with the territory is well shown in the dishes, prepared with egg pasta, or dried bronze-extruded Sicilian durum wheat pasta; same for the meat, which comes from local breedings, and for the fish, which is fished in our sea.
The tradition is evident at the end of the meal, when the moment of the dessert is turned into the rediscovery of the famous chocolate of Modica. Not only a prosaic suggestion of flavours, but a journey to discover some tasty and delicious combinations. The elegant interior hall, which can host 120 covers, together with the stunning external environments for a total capacity of 180 covers, all offer a variety of solutions that can recreate the ideal scenery for both business and convivial meetings, banquets, without spoiling the atmosphere of total relax which is ensured to the guests of the resort.
The outdoor area offers many different corners where to relax your mind and body surrounded by a striking natural landscape: among palm trees, flower vases and waterfalls, you may choose to have a rest under the big circular bower, or by the swimming pool, always looked after by our careful and professional bar service. For those willing to be inebriated looking at the stunning view of our countryside, a visit to the roof garden is something not-to-be-missed, there you will find an equipped solarium, excellent to end a meeting, take an aperitif, or have a rest after dinner.
We will be pleased to help out guests in the discovery of the surrounding territory, with its colours and sweet smells. Not only the places of the baroque art (Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto), but also nature trails and excursions (Cava Ispica, The Oasis of Vendicari, watermills and so on), sailing boat rides along the Mediterranean coasts and food and wine itineraries, which will be a permanent and unique memory.
Staying at the Pietre Nere Resort not only means elegance and refinement in the furniture and in the many environments all in an undeniable charming context, but it mainly means a high quality service, ensured by a multilingual, competent, and professional staff, which is available 24 hours a day.
