N’orma, a fortress open for leisure

N’orma – spelled exactly like that, with an apostrophe – is an old country house near Chiaramonte Gulfi, in the province of Ragusa, Sicily.

Technically, it’s a “baglio”: a fortress developed around a castle. The word comes from the Sicilian “bagghiu”, which in turn comes from the French “baille” – which is the term local nobleman, Norman count Manfredi III Chiaramonte, founder of the town of the same name, used to describe the beautiful place at the beginning of the 14th century.

Today N’orma is a rural residence open to the public, where you can enjoy a stay in one of two rooms (number fifteen and twenty-five, two lucky numbers according to the sieve theory), great food and wine. A few kilometers away, you can visit Ibla and Ragusa, Modica, Caltagirone, Noto, Scicli, Siracusa, Ortigia, Piazza Armerina, Marzamemi and Vendicari.

N’orma has all of this to offer and more.
