  • Description


    My name illi, I am a therapiest and a sound artist from London, UK. I created our beloved off-grid, simple living, paradise in nature as a place to host and exchange music and art, creativity and personal growth, sharing wisdom and healing.

    Located 10-12 minute walk from the UNESCO-recognised old city of Ragusa Ibla, we are a place of wild beauty and inspiration. The old stone house is on the banks of the river of San Leonardo with a waterfall and a natural pool at our doorstep.

    We offer no luxury but basic countryside accommodation surrounded by fruit trees all year round. We have an outdoor compost toilet & shower and a basic kitchen.
