Welcome to Villa Zinna, a most serene 17th century retreat in southernmost Sicily

Villa Zinna is a 17th century Sicilian Masseria located in the Zinnafondo Country Estate on the main road between the

UNESCO World Heritage designated City of Ragusa Ibla and Ragusa Marina, at a distance of 6 miles from the Mediterranean sea in Sicily.

Villa Zinna is surrounded by the Zinnafondo Estate, a natural park made up of centuries old olive trees, carrubbo trees and almond trees.

It embodies the quintessential Sicilian country side with all its historical hand made stone masonry, pre-christian caves, hills and breathtaking views.

Within the Zinnafondo Estate is an archeological site with elements of a IV century B.C. necropolis located on the north side of the entry road.

To reach Villa Zinna, drive halfway on the main road from Ragusa - to Marina di Ragusa  SP25 (SP=Strada Provinciale)

You will pass on your right hand side landmarks such as Poggio del Sole, Villa Ottaviano, Case di Cutalia. The Zinnafondo Estate lies right behind the Case di Cutalia Estate.

Immediately after Case di Cutalia stop by the Palazzola Cafe' (soon after Case di Cutalia and much before Villa Criscione).

The Palazzola Cafe' is the only Cafe' you will find on that road. It is on the right side if you drive from Ragusa to Marina di Ragusa.

At the Palazzola Cafe' starts the 'Palazzolo Torre Mastro' Road, SP76

Take the Torre Mastro Road following the directions towards 'Il Casale Restaurant'. Drive for Km 1,5 from the Palazzola Cafe' and after two narrow curves, you will find yourselves on a junction/crossway and a little bridge. At this point you find yourself already on the Zinnafondo property.

Just cross the little bridge and soon after the bridge on your right you find the Villa Zinna Malta Crossed black gate.

Should you by mistake pass it proceeding up the hill, you will reach the Casale restaurant. Just turn back and the gate this time will be on your left just before the little bridge.
