Experience a stay like no other at the distinguished Borgo Pantano, a beautiful manor farm erected over 150 years ago and restored in 2009. The hotel is in the peaceful area of Cozzo Pantano, roughly 7km outside the inner city of Syracuse. The attention to detail exuding from the building reveals the passion and knowledge the owners have of the area, making it obvious the property is family run. The Borgo Pantano is split into two sections, with both sets of rooms encapsulating the bucolic charm of south east Sicily with its choice in minimalist design and locally sourced furniture, manufactured by Sicilian artisans. Guests can enjoy strolls through the verdant green gardens, whilst stopping to take a dip in the large swimming pool. Given the clear show of appreciation for Sicilian culture and heritage, it is no surprise that the hotel can organise a shuttle service to Syracuse centre; here you can gain a further understanding of the origins surrounding this diverse island by visiting some of the top attractions, like the Greek Theatre. 

The hotel has 32 rooms (official rating 4 star). Minimum stay 3 nights during July and August.
