Welcome to Falconara Charming House and Resort
Falconara Charming House and Resort, a very new complex in an enchanting and fascinating location, is situated on the southern coast of Sicily, between Agrigento and Ragusa. Its in a dominating position over the sea and enhanced by the magic atmosphere of an exceptional ¿neighbour¿ ¿ the evocative medieval Castle of Falconara, built in Norman times to oppose Moor invasions. Various places of cultural interest are easily reached from the resort, such as the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento, the Roman Villa del Casale at Piazza Armerina, with its splendid mosaics, Caltagirone with its craftsmen pottery and the baroque Sicilian ¿jewels¿ of Ragusa Ibla, Modica and Scicli. Inaugurated in summer 2007, the extraordinary building was built on the same land that was the residence of farmworkers in the past who worked inside the Castle. The care in details and the choice of materials, essential and elegant in their purity, make the environment unique, creating a reality where art and nature are blended in a sublime way. The main body of the resort ¿Club House¿ is only 200 metres from the sea, and besides hosting most of the bedrooms, also has the lobby, bar, restaurant and the wellbeing centre ¿Space Comfort Zone¿, with Turkish bath, gym and relaxation area. The sporting zone includes a swimming pool and tennis court while across the garden there is a beautiful sandy bay with parasols, sun-loungers and swimming towels available free for guests. After careful and accurate renovation, the ancient Castle annex also contains some bedrooms, with the balconies directly over the sea at the new resort. All the comfortable bedrooms have a patio onto the garden, onto the sea or balcony or terrace with sea view. Four very spacious suites, also on two levels, have names which reflect their uniqueness and the splendour of past times (Baron Chiaramonte Bordonaro, Prince Brancifore, Montereale, Pietrapagliata).
