N’orma: Guesthouse in Chiaramonte Gulfi
In the south of Sicily, in the countryside of Ragusa, N'orma is a guesthouse that bridges authenticity and modernity.
In the middle of the Sicilian countryside
In the south of Sicily, at the foot of the Hyblean Mountains, and a stone’s throw from the village of Chiaramonte Gulfi, N’orma is a guesthouse nestled in the middle of nature among olive trees, almond trees, vineyards, and wheat fields.
Originally N’orma was a rural farmhouse, a baglio, a typical Sicilian building with a square paved courtyard in the center and rooms that open all around. The renovation of this abandoned ruin was carried out by the Milanese owners Andreina and Maurizio with the help of the architect Patrizia Sbalchiero.
The place’s authenticity has been preserved while adding contemporary touches such as waxed concrete, white plaster on the walls, reed ceilings, designer furniture, and a large steel countertop in the kitchen. The mix between old and new is clearly a success, the rooms are warm and rustic in perfect cohabitation with the landscapes that surround them. The ensemble is accompanied by intimate lighting design, masterminded by designer Davide Groppi.
N’orma offers 2 beautiful independent rooms, number 15 and number 25. The interior and exterior spaces are connected by large glass openings. The rooms are equipped with linen sheets and bedspreads made from pure cashmere. They have open bathrooms with a bathtub and natural-made toiletries.
In the morning, you wake up to a simple breakfast with healthy and wholesome products, accompanied by homemade olive oil, served on a terrace surrounded by cactus. There are several areas to relax; a library, a terrace and a concrete swimming pool that reflects the blue skies.
Here days go by slowly, N’orma is an ideal place for city dwellers looking to disconnect.
