A HOTEL INTO THE BEAUTY
Beauty is a rare and precious gift and we can happily offer it to you.
La Corte del Sole is in a very special position, on the top of a little hill looking towards the Southern point of the island, in the middle of a rare and beautiful landscape near the Vendicari Natural Reserve.
Every terrace and every corner of the Masseria have excellent views of the land and the sea with colours varying each and every hour of the day, from sunrise to sunset, in every moment of your holiday.
THE VAL DI NOTO
Today, Sicily appears to be a region with unique appeal: every single aspect that characterises it is linked to a fragment of its history.
Noto is the ideal starting point for discovering the treasures of South East Sicily.
Nature, art, myth and history, along with beautiful beaches and excellent food and wine, become the keywords for an unforgettable holiday.
A DREAMY SEA
A DREAMY SEA
The southern part of East Sicily, from Syracuse to the Isola delle Correnti, an extreme strip of land at the intersection between the Ionian and the Mediterranean Sea, boasts a coastline of sandy beaches, alternating bays and coves, with crystal-clear and clean waters.
More than 8 km of coast are protected in the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a worlwide renowned wildlife and wetland oasis.
As we’re in love with this region, we want to share our Sicilian heritage with you.
We’d like to suggest not only what there is to see or do here, but also how to do it, with the proper outlook for capturing the scents, colours and shades of a secret Sicily, and putting you in touch with the soul of these places.
From arrival to departure, all our staff will be at your disposal to help you have the holiday you want, by providing you with information, tips and advice, and booking internal and external services at the Hotel for you.
Day after day, you can build a stay that’s tailored to your needs, choosing what you want from what we can offer you, and have a true Sicilian experience.

THE LOVE FOR OUR COUNTRYSIDE
La Corte del Sole has joined the project E.Vi.Med – Balance for Life in the Mediterranean – funded by the European Inter-regional III B – MEDOCC (Western Mediterranean) Programme, which involves five
areas of Mediterranean Europe with the unique interest of achieving one aim:
the balanced and sustainable development of tourism preserving the local resources through management practices that take into account not only the needs of tourists, but also those of the local administrators and the local residents.
This programme is implemented with a few basic points, listed below
THE FUNDAMENTAL POINTS
We have adopted a detailed plan to use energy in a functional and thrifty way, with savings systems such as:
· a card at the entrance of each room, when inserted it activates a circuit that supplies the room with electricity.
· The use of low energy light bulbs.
· The air conditioning shuts down automatically when the windows are opened.
· A photovoltaic system of 32 kwh has been installed on the rooftops to produce the electricity used by the hotel, reducing CO2 emissions
Some measures have been adopted to save and reuse water by:
· inserting flow regulators into all taps, enriching water with oxygen and reducing the total quantity of litres/minute output.
· In every room, customers are asked to use towels in the bathrooms logically: they can be replaced on request.
· The water used in the sanitary circuit is treated using a reverse osmosis system that purifies water and channels the wastewater into a well, so that it can be recycled and used later for irrigation.
· The water from the sanitary system flows through a sewer system that pours the purified fluid into the soil, without putting it into the public sewer system.
Domestic hot water is produced by a system of boilers and by a 3,000 litre accumulator connected to a solar-powered hot water production system.
Reastaurant and Breakfast
Most of the raw materials we eat every day, both as part of our breakfast and as cuisine dishes, are products of our own district of Noto, so they express local flavours and help with the reclamation of Sicilian traditions.
Particular emphasis is given to hospitality by our reception manager, who supports guests visiting our area by suggesting locations and cultural initiatives aimed at providing them with a taste of our local traditions.
Communications for sustainable tourism
Our guests are given a range of information aimed at adopting simple behaviours that help us improve our service in protecting the environment, and that also makes them more aware of a responsible and sustainable vision of tourism during their stay.
Our hotel and restaurant are organised for the collection and separation of mixed waste, paper, organic waste, plastic and glass.
