Dona Corrada and her son Stefano are very special people, who will make you fall in love with South Sicily forever! Living in the paradise - this is the only feeling every morning...

Villa Fortezza Bruno is located a short drive from Ispica. An even if you don’t have a romantic bone in your body, you are going to love this place. I traveled with friends to Sicily and the Villa Fortezza Bruno was recommended by friends. God bless them. What a great choice. Parts of the fortress date back to the 1400’s....

We were four people and stayed in the largest apartment in the castle with 2 huge bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and two large full bathrooms. The accommodations were superb. Corrada, the owner, is really the person that helped me fall in love with Sicily. The first morning we woke up to a beautiful selection of pastries, fruit, hot...

I think that Villa Fortezza Bruno is probably the finest place to stay in the whole of southeastern Sicily. In English, the word villa isn't quite right. This is a Sicilian version of an English country manor, parts of it hundreds of years old, surrounded by several hectares of orchards and working farmland. You can go for a walk and,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the last medieval fortresses still standing on the island, 'Fortezza Bruno' was built around the year 800a.d., as a watchtower, in the attempt to stop the moorish invasion. It has continued to guard this beautiful part of South-Eastern Sicily ever since and it can now be your temporary home on the island. It offers three wonderfully restored apartments, which provide a perfect combination of period features and modern comfort. Fortezza Bruno is a great strategic starting point from which to explore South-Eastern Sicily. It is your perfect base to visit the wonderful Baroque towns of the Val di Noto, like Scicli, Modica or Noto, go to the beach which is just five minutes away, explore beautiful Siracusa or tour the many wineries around the area. Besides, with the helpful tips that only someone like Baroness Bruno can provide you are sure to enjoy a unique stay in Sicily. ... more   less
