Hotel General Manager
I have been working for many years in this sector, which increasingly fascinates and fascinates me. The hospitality has always been a ‘mission’ that sees me as an absolute protagonist and always in continuous training. In fact, I believe that those who work in this sector always act in a direction that is excellence and to ensure that as you well know we must always be prepared, up-to-date and ready.
Our total dedication to hospitality – all of the time, efforts and passion that we invest in making you feel at home – would come to nothing if not accompanied by an underlying philosophy that guides us and makes us who we are. The Masseria della Volpe has the philosophy of ecological sustainability as its guiding principle. Our concept of well-being is environmentally aware and conscious of the relation between the wellness of the individual and the ecological balance of the planet. This concept has guided every choice made in the services we offer, down to the smallest details. The Masseria is even powered by 100% from photovoltaic panels in the parking area.

Main Strengths, Special Touch
The Masseria della Volpe has the philosophy of ecological sustainability as its guiding principle. Our concept of well-being is environmentally aware and conscious of the relation between the wellness of the individual and the ecological balance of the planet. This concept has guided every choice made in the services we offer, down to the smallest details. The Masseria is even powered by 100% from photovoltaic panels in the parking area.
The energy produced is both independent and, above all, sustainable. The pool, the spa area, and the restaurant were all constructed with locally sourced building materials. All of our wood is from local carpenters. Our white stone has existed for centuries in southeast Sicily, the lava stone used in the spa and some rooms has been quarried from Etna slopes, and the walls separating the interior spaces have been constructed from dry stone, in accordance with traditional Sicilian building techniques.
The olive and carob trees that shade the garden and pool are hundreds of years old and bear witness to the agricultural tradition of the area. Naturally, the olive oil and citrus fruits at the Codarossa restaurant are produced by our own trees. All of ourspa treatment products, as well as the soaps and detergents used throughout the hotel, are made with 100% organic natural extracts.
Our philosophy of ecological sustainability is no mere passing trend. It is our attempt to give a true gift to Mother Earth and to every guest who identifies with the need to respect the fragile present and promising future of our planet.
The Relais is 30 minutes away from the beautiful locations used as film sets forthe television series “Inspector Montalbano” adapted from the novels by the Sicilian writer Andrea Camilleri: from Scicli to Ragusa, the Marinella promenade, Montalbano’s house on the beach of Punta Secca, and the Castle of Donnafugata.
