Ciarìa comes from the Sicilian word for "light or glimmer" and Le Terrazze di Ciaria is charming 2 bedroom house (sleeps 4) located just a a couple of miles from the Mediterranean coast and the beautiful Baroque town of the Val di Noto, Sicily. This secret gem is hidden away in the historical centre of Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a place filled with history and where time seems to stand still. Along the narrow road that leads to this old house with contemporary interiors, soak up the sites and sounds including the Castle of the Counts, the Church of San Pietro and the flight of steps leading up to the front of the Cathedral of San Giorgio. What better way to explore south east Sicily than to have your own place to yourselves in one of the prettiest locations. Accommodation To the right and left of the living area there is one large master room with en-suite bathroom and a comfortable double room. The living space and the master bedroom have both access through wide doors to the main terrace. Soft beiges and creams set the tone of the interiors with white, greys and browns all adding to give a sophisticated and chic feel. Parking Just 200 meters far from Ciarìa there is a free parking area (in front of an ancient convent) completely dedicated to the inhabitants of the quarter and their guests. Activities Le Terrazze di Ciaria is just a short distance from the sea as well as the wonderful Sicilian baroque town of Modica, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are plenty of areas of Sicily to explore and car rental is essential to make the most of the experience. The Duomo di San Pietro stands proudly at the centre of this historic town and there are few better places from which to view it than Ciaria! Whether you are conjuring up a plate of pasta in the panoramic kitchen, or relaxing on the terrace of this stylishly refurbished apartment, your eyes will constantly be drawn to the mesmerising beauty of Modica. Dining The main terrace has different seating areas and is the ideal space for al fresco life. At sunset and later at night, with a candle or two, the view across Modica and its twinkling lights is one of the most romantic settings we have come across. The second terrace boasts an outside kitchen with hand painted tiles, perfect for preparing meals during the warmer evenings. A unique place What makes a one-of-kind place this place is the astonishing panorama that allows you to catch at a glance the whole picture,the morphology, the architecture and the atmosphere of Modica. News From 16 September, Ryanair will connect the airports of London - Brussells - Rome with the new airport of Comiso (RG). The Low Cost flights are already operating on the routes: Comiso - London Stansted Return Comiso - Brussells Charleroi Return Comiso - Rome Ciampino Return The airport of Comiso is 25 min. from Casa Ciarìa(Modica). We are awaiting for your arrival!
  • Poco que añadir a todas las demás evaluaciones, el lugar, la casa y la atención de Laura y Mauro son perfectos. Un vero sogno.

    Enrique2015-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice appartment with a fantastic view. The terrass is really amazing. All is nice and really confortable.

    Marina2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mauro's home is beautiful, comfortable, and ideally located for exploring Modica and southeastern Sicily. It goes without saying that the apartment and view is top-notch; what you cannot see in the pictures is the charm of the neighborhood and city. Not to be missed for lovers of food, culture, and a spacious, sunny porch.

    Matt2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Le Terrazze has the best view of Modica. It's in an ideal location and I doubt you will find something more perfect. We were welcomed with local sweats from the famous Antica Dolceria Bonajuto and local Sicilian Oranges. The location is ideal, central and easy to get around. The weather was a little wet but we did get to use the Terrace a little. The Michelin-starred chef Accursio Craparo has a Restaurant at the foot of the hill when walking down from the flat. The famous chocolates of Antica Dolceria Bonajuto and Café Dell'Arte are also worth the visit. I would defiantly return and stay here again. If you have trouble with steps this city is not for you.

  • We stayed at the end of the year 2013 in this very beautiful home.The equipment is excellent and the view from the terrace is magnificent. Everything went well and Laura did a good job. We would recommend this special place in any case. Wir verbrachten 2 herrliche Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Alles war hervorragend vorbereitet und die Ausstattung war ebenfalls gut. Als wir ankamen, wurden wir von Laura herzlich begrüßt und auf dem nett gedeckten Tisch wartete ein ganzes Tablett mit super leckeren Teilchen (dolce). Wir würden dieses Haus jederzeit weiter empfehlen, insbesondere ist die Lage sehr gut, da man zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten in der Hauptstraße von Modica ist. Nicht zu vergessen, ist der wahnsinnig schöne Ausblick von der großen Terrasse. Cornelia und Thomas aus Deutschland

    Cornelia2014-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Mauro's apartment was beautiful - exactly as the pictures showed. It was incredibly clean and nicely decorated. The view was absolutely stunning, and had the weather been warmer, we would have spent nearly all of our time on the terrace! Alas, it was January and chilly, but still nice to enjoy the view. Laura met us in town and let us follow her up the windy streets to the apartment, and showed us where to park. She and Giovanni (Mauro's dad) gave us a warm welcome at the apartment - they had bought basic groceries (pasta, sauce, fruit, coffee, milk), plus wine, and some of Monica's famous chocolate. They also had an amazing guidebook to Modica, with their favorite restaurants, places to grocery shop, opening hours of churches and museums, etc. plus a map. We had a great stay, and I loved walking up and down the stairs into town each day - Modica is really a magical place.

    Anna2015-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Le Terrazze di Ciaria in Modica was excellent. The apartment has magnificent views, is very clean and tidy, has everything you need. The hosts were superb.

    Edita2014-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • From the beginning everything was perfect! Laura met us in a central location so we could easily follow her to the house and parking location. We first arrived to a beautiful home and were given the tour of a gorgeous home. Then the patio doors were opened and we were speechless with the breathtaking views. Needless to say we spent many of our evenings sitting on the patio drinking wine. From arrival to checkout the process, location, views and hospitality were perfect. Thank you for the local wine and chocolates...incredible!!!

    Modica, Sicily, Italia

    Ancient independent and finely restored little house situated in a calm and picturesque area in the center of Modica Alta. Romantic terrace with splendid views, separate kitchen, loft with a comfortable bed, A/C, wifi. All facilities are just a 5min walk. Free parking at a few minutes walking. Nice restaurants, pizza places, supermarket at walking distance.
    Location The house is ideal to enjoy a romantic atmosphere in one of the best areas in Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where time seems to stand still. Modica Alta is a very quiet, safe yet central neighborhood in Modica. It is located in the southern area of Iblei Mountains, close to Mediterranean golden beaches, fishermen villages and splendid Baroque towns of Val di Noto. Being independent and very cozy, the house is a perfect base to relax and discover the beauties of Southeastern Sicily. In Modica you can walk around, rent e-bikes and a car is very useful to explore the surroundings. The House The house is finely decorated and renovated with love by me and my family to preserve its original charm while providing it with modern utilities (TV, A/C, oven, washing machine, etc.). Ideal to have a wine privately but also to enjoy an early breakfast, the sunny terrace has a dining table surrounded by palms and a truly romantic setting. The view from it is very charming, especially at night. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and decorated with hand painted tiles. Blue stairs lead to the bedroom on a loft with cushions and place to sit and read. Parking At a few minutes by walking from the house there is a free parking area where you can easily park. The neighbourhood and surroundings Modica Alta is the most authentic part of Modica. The position is ideal as the sun shines on it so you can enjoy a breakfast in the sun, and it's magic as-being more elevated- you can see the dim lights of the city all around you. I suggest you to get lost in the neighborhood and you'll be surprised by its beautiful balconies, narrow small streets and welcoming people. Close to the house you will find the Mercato di Santa Teresa, a well equipped supermarket with a great selection of local vegetables and fruit. There is also a cinema that shows selected movies and a nice enoteca with music and excellent wine (Rappa Enoteca). Restaurants and pasticcerie to taste Sicilian cannoli and other specialties are also located nearby. Tips There are plenty of monuments, beaches, historical towns of Sicily to explore and car rental is highly recommended to move around. The Duomo di San Giorgio is the symbol of the city, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Sicily and you can see it from the terrace of the house. Many traditional restaurants, cafes, shops selling the famous Modica chocolate, cannoli alla ricotta and other specialties as well as a supermarket are located very close to the house. I can provide you with hints and tips about restaurants and places to visit if you wish.
  • As a host, Olivia is very helpful and provides all key information you would need for your stay. At first it was difficult to navigate through the streets and find parking ,but people are incredibly helpful and friendly - and you become used to finding your way around the area. The house is full of character and was well equipped. Overall we had an incredible time, and would definitely come back!

    Farah2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia è stata una host molto premurosa. Anche se non ci siamo incontrati si è dimostrata molto attenta alle mie esigenze con consigli su luoghi da visitare, ristoranti e bar. Comunicazione sempre veloce via mail. La casa è molto accogliente e la vista spettacolare (bisogna letteralmente sudarsela, però!). Il letto a prima vista sembra scomodo (è molto basso), in realtà mi ha fatto passare un mal di schiena che avevo da giorni! Modica è in una posizione ideale per raggiungere altre meraviglie barocche come Ragusa Ibla e Scicli. Super consigliato!

    David2017-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia's place in Modica was just fantastic. Gorgeous view from a sunny terrace (with a great umbrella for shade if needed), a very well equipped kitchen, a spacious living room, a very sweet bed room and all of it furnished with taste. The sunny appartment was spotless clean and tidy. Communication with Olivia was fast, smooth and very friendly. We got all necessary information and lots of tipps on Modica. We stayed a happy week at Olivia's and can highly recommend it to everyone - just be prepared to climb some stairs and maybe get lost once or twice in the old town ;)

    Kathrin2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia's flat is lovely--very clean and tastefully decorated. As others have noted, the terrace has an incredible view down over Modica and is a good place to relax with a glass of wine. Just be aware that the upper town (Modica Alta) is very quiet and has limited options for dining out. We walked down into the lower town each day for coffee, wine or a meal. If you fancy a quiet place, though, this location is wonderful. As well, the stairs to the bed in the loft are narrow and steep and would be tricky for anyone with any mobility issues, or who needs to get up in the night. Highlights for us included watching the swooping swallows every evening from the terrace and wandering around the streets looking at the amazing architecture.

    Suzanne2016-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment perfectly located in Modica Alta. We spent 4 nights here in it was the best airbnb-experience of our sicily trip. Try the nearby restaurant "Locanda". It is excellent!

    Johan2015-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Il nostro soggiorno a Modica è stato davvero perfetto! La città è meravigliosa e ricca di angoli da scoprire e prelibatezze da degustare. Olivia è stata una ospite molto premurosa e attenta sia prima del viaggio, condividendo con noi preziosi suggerimenti su luoghi da visitare e indirizzi di locali tipici veramente da non perdere (abbiamo fatto tappa fissa al bar di piazza Matteotti!) che durante il nostro soggiorno, rispondendo alle mie domande nel giro di pochi minuti. Il suo appartamento è una piccola chicca nel cuore della città alta, dalla terrazza si gode una vista a 180 gradi di Modica....sembra quasi di toccare il duomo con un dito. Consiglierò sicuramente quest'appartamento tutti gli amici che vorranno visitare queste zone. Complimenti Olivia e grazie!

    Martina2018-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great view and a great location in Modica Alta. A bit of an uphill walk from the closest parking which was especially the case for us due to a road closure and associated parking restrictions. Also as a warning, there's 2 Via Santa Lucias close together and of course (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps directed us to the wrong one. The apartment is nice and has all you need. It's also close to a supermarket and some nice restaurants. Highly recommended.

    Neville2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly located in old town: 1.5 hours from Catania airport, 30 minutes driving to the sea by car, 2 hours to the Valley of Temples. Stunning view from the terrace and amazing Sicilian cousin in 10 minutes walking down to the city centre. Haven't meet Olivia personally, but she responded very quickly and friendly to (Hidden by Airbnb) .

  • Wir waren für zwei Wochen Gast in Salvos Wohnung in Modica. Die Wohnung war Dank der guten Beschreibung von Salvo (GPS Daten) gut zu finden. Salvo hieß uns herzlich willkommen und gab uns hilfreiche Informationen über die Wohnung und die Umgebung. Wir fanden es toll, dass er immer ein offenes Ohr für uns hatte und prompt und schnell antwortete. Wir nutzen die Wohnung als Ausgangspunkt für viele Besichtigung: Syrakus, der Ätna, Noto, Ragusa, Caltagirone, Donnafugata usw., ist alles sehr gut zu erreichen. Und vor allem waren wir oft im wunderschönen Modica! Die neue Wohnung ist sehr schön und klar eingerichtet in einem modernen italienischen Gebäude. Und vor allem ist sie sehr sauber. Sie ist im fünften Stock, mit Aufzug, und hat einen großen Balkon. Wir fanden immer leicht einen Parkplatz vorm Haus. Die Wohnung hat alles, was man für einen gelungenen Urlaubsaufenthalt braucht. Und nochmals zu Salvo: Seine Gastfreundschaft und Aufmerksamkeit fanden wir ausgesprochen toll. Danke, gerne wieder!

    Günther2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Salvo is a brilliant and enthusiastic host. Super easy to communicate and he answered immediately to our requests. His apartment is great and lovely&stylish decorated with lots of attention to detail. Btw it's brand-new! Since the small historic towns in Sicily are a nightmare for driving and parking, Salvo's place is a perfect base to explore the south coast. We highly recommend his apartment. Enjoy your time in Modica!

    An alluring house recently renewed with a special care for details and for the baroccan sicilian tradition. You'll find one of the rare private gardens in the old town of Modica and original floors from the late 18th century. Check our (Hidden by Airbnb) page @thesicilianescape
    The house shows two large rooms with high ceilings and antique original floors, one it's the living room (with a sofa bed) and the other its the dining room and kitchen; both have terraces that face the old town of Modica. There are two bedrooms; a single and a double and two bathrooms. The garden gives you the chance to enjoy breakfasts and dinners. Dining with the great view and in the heart of the town is magic. Also all the plants are from this particular area such as Lemon trees, mandarins, Carobs and succulent plants. Amaca, shower and beach beds are available. The greater part of the furniture comes from this area as well as the materials used during the renewal. Our mission was to give life to an abandoned building by maintaining the baroccan soul that so well characterize Modica, Scicli and all the valley of Noto. I will leave a portable internet station that you'll be able to use at the beach and during your day trips around the area.
    Modica is an attractive historic town in south-eastern Sicily, one of the area's UNESCO-listed Baroque towns. Modica is particularly famous for its chocolate, and it is an appealing destination for food-lovers, making a good holiday base
  • Llegamos lloviendo a Modica y Peppe apareció en 5 minutos a guiarnos hasta la casa. Teníamos una botella de excelente vino, cortesía de la casa. Todo funcionó de maravillas.

    Nelson2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Magnifique maison avec des superbes pièces. On se sent comme chez soi. La maison est très bien équipée (lit bébé, cuisine, transat ...). Le jardin est très mignon et agréable. Emplacement parfait ! Nous sommes très heureux d'être restés dans cet maison.

    Pubellier2015-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Die Unterkunft war wunderbar gelegen. Der Garten war idyllisch und die Ausstattung des Hauses optimal . Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.

    Ulla2015-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Caterina's house at the start of May when the weather in Modica was very pleasant. The house is enormous- the rooms are palatial, the ceilings are epic and the views from the windows in the kitchen and living room are breathtaking. The garden is a joy - fresh lemons on the trees, sun loungers, an outdoor shower to cool off at and again, those views! Amazing. The kitchen is very well-equipped too. The main street in Modica is a 10 minute walk down some steps, which of course means a bit of a walk on the way back up. But it's worth it for those views. Thanks for a perfect stay. We'd recommend Caterina's house to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing stay in a stunning setting.

    Carmen2015-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • So I am going to add to the long list of amazing reviews for Caterina's house. It is stunning! It met our expectations and more. High vaulted ceilings - a huge amount of space, well equipped kitchen (not that we used it) as we went out every day and evening. But we bought some basic supplies and had a breakfast of kings (coffee and toast and fruit!) in her garden looking out over the most incredible view of Modica. Sitting in the shade of the mandarin and lemon trees. Heaven! Would highly recommend anyone to stay here - It made our holiday!

    Sarah2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Architektonisch liebevoll gestaltetes Haus mit grandioser Terrasse.

    Daniel2018-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • A belated but sincere review. We loved everything about the stay in Caterina's apartment and it's romantic setting. Whilst we didn't get the chance to meet Caterina and were welcomed by a friend/ associate, arrival was smooth and we totally enjoyed the beautiful and spacious apartment with it's brilliant mix of traditional ( super high ceilings, thick walls, fruit trees in the garden, medieval views...) and modern comforts ( hot water, fully working kitchen, internet, very decent double bed and bed linnen) - everything works. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!

  • L'appartamento si trova nel cuore di Modica, a due passi dal corso principale, in una posizione strategica per scoprire anche tutta la zona circostante più a Sud della Sicilia. Come dice il nome, l'appartamento sembra una piccola grotta scavata nella roccia, completamente nuovo e ben arredato, un po' buio e sempre fresco: in estate potrebbe essere l'ideale per trovare ristoro dalla calura siciliana. Molto gentili Giuliano e Angelo che ci ha accolto.

    Elisa2018-04-22T00:00:00Z

  • We loved our stay at Giuliano's apartment. The apartment is exactly the same as shown in the photos. It is nicely decorated and we immediately felt at home. The apartment was located only one street away from the main road in Modica, and still, the street in front of the apartment was pretty quiet. We would really recommend Giuliano's place!

    Caroline2018-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • La casa di Giuliano è molto bella, in un luogo comodissimo, una laterale silenziosa, del corso principale. L’appartamento è molto accogliente e curato, non manca nulla!!

  • Correctness of advertisement: The pictures shown in the advertisement were exactly according to what we discovered. Everything was very well in shape, clean and functioning (fully equipped kitchen, a huge fruit platter as a welcome, very nice soap, plenty of towels, etc.) Communication: The communication with Luca was very fast and easy. He was very helpful with our questions. Cleanliness: The apartment was perfectly clean. Location: The location is an extraordinary place in the midst of old town Modica. The garden in midst of the old houses with orange and "apricot" trees was magnificent. Also, the jacuzzi in the garden was a very nice one to relax after an exiting day. However, one has to be aware that the location is in the midst of Modica alta (residential area) with a lot of stairs and not much around (cafes/shops are more in Modica bassa, a small supermarket is 5 min away by walk). Check-In: Check-in was done by Amalia who was very friendly and always very helpful also in case of questions/inquiries during our stay. Price / Benefit: The price was fair compared to the benefit we got. The garden was a wonderful place to relax. The apartment had everything we needed. The kitchen was perfectly equipped. The sleeping quality was absolutely great. If you have a younger child (than 2), the spiral stair to the wine cellar might be a challenge as it cannot be closed or secured.

  • Om te vieren dat mijn ouders 50 jaar getrouwd zijn, zijn we een weekje naar Sicilië geweest. We hebben werkelijk een fantastische tijd gehad in Luca's huis in Modica. Heerlijke tuin, fraai - en stijlvol - huis met alle voorzieningen gelegen op een hele mooie plek. Dit was echt vakantie! Heerlijk tot rust komen en genieten. Dank je wel Luca + Salvo!

    Bart2014-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • My family went to Monica over New Year. We arrived late because of a flight delay and were met by Salvo (who works with Luca) and who was extremely helpful. The apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures. We had a great time at the apartment and in Monica and the surrounding area. Would recommend Luca's retreat highly. John

  • Bello! Bellissimo!!! Il nostro soggiorno a Modica è stato davvero gradevole, per la magia dei luoghi ma soprattutto per la bella dimora in cui abbiamo soggiornato, nel cuore di modica alta. Una casa di grande fascino, moderna con ogni confort, magica nella sua atmosfera e sospesa nell'energia della storia e del passato. L'accoglienza ci è piaciuta molto, si sono prodigati per farci stare bene, per farci sentire come a casa nostra. La casa dispone di tutto ciò che è necessario, ogni cosa è di qualità e di molto buon gusto, pensata da chi ama le cose belle e raffinate, da chi desidera veramente che i propri ospiti si trovino a proprio agio. Non possiamo che dire "bello" ma anche Grazie, per tutto ciò che abbiamo vissuto in questa residenza, che immaginiamo d'estate ancora più bella ed affascinante. A presto, Anime a Sud, Grazie ancora per la nostra vacanza da Voi. Elena e Lionello

    Elena2016-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. The outside space is great.

    Jeremy2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a jewel, a few yards away from San Giorgio, one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Sicily. It is very comfortable and magnificently designed. Because it is in Modica Alta, there is much walking uphill involved, but it is part of the experience. We travelled with a 5 year old and a baby and found it manageable. Lorenzo, who greeted us, was charming and extremely helpful. Modica itself is a jewel. Lunches in the garden were a treat, as were dips in the jacuzzi. I can't say enough good things about the place.

    Pierre2017-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • there isn't a better place to stay in all of Modica. Beautiful space indoors and out and perfectly located

    Brian2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Well, this is one of the best vacation properties we have ever visited. I can hardly imagine anything that is missing there. It is a spacious three bedroom apartment (it may be called a house as well) with private yard located at the walls of main Modica cathedral. Each bedroom has its own shower and toilet. Everything is really solid and well-made and furnished with a style. Pay attention to the rusted hatch with electrical drive that closes the spiral stairs to one of the bedrooms and you will understand what I mean about style). The area is quiet, so our late night conversation (with wine) in the yard under the trees was the most loud noise in the area. We visited Modica in December and the apartment was just as warm as you would like it to be. Finally the host (Lorenzo) was friendly, helpful and flexible with our check-in/check-out.

  • Estancia inmejorable. Es uno de los mejores airbnb en los que he estado. No puedo decir nada malo de casa de Cristina.

    Enrique2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • El alojamiento de Cristina estaba muy bien situado en la ciudad de Módica, en pleno centro de la ciudad y con acceso caminando a las principales iglesias y museos. Varias cafeterías y tiendas en las inmediaciones. La vivienda no era nada ruidosa y muy acogedora y espaciosa. Una buena opción para moverte por el sureste de la isla. La comunicación con Cristina y su compañera Noemi fue excelente.

    Manuel2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Très agréable appartement décoré avec goût. Merci Cristina et à ton amie nous devions fêter qui une nuit mais sou le charme du lieu nous avons prolongé notre séjour

    Caroline2018-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Le logement est bien situé, la literie est correcte. Par contre, le four ne fonctionne pas dans la cuisine. La salle de bain n'est pas très propre : le tapis été plein de poils, il n'y avait pas de pression dans la douche et le chauffe-eau était éteint donc nous n'avons pas eu d'eau chaude. Toutes les chaînes de la TV ne fonctionnent pas. Le logement sent beaucoup l'humidité. Du fait de l'emplacement en plein centre ville tout est faisable à pied. Un parking gratuit est disponible juste devant le logement. Par contre il y a du bruit la nuit car mauvaise isolation phonique. Des petites marques d'attention étaient là comme des chocolat de Modica, un récapitulatif des bonnes adresses du coin.

    Guillaume2018-10-04T00:00:00Z

  • Du suchst noch und bist nicht sicher, ob du nicht lieber doch in Ragusa, Scicli, oder Sampieri buchen solltest? Lass das Suchen sein - du bist hier in Modica und in Rudia's Wohnung genau richtig! Nicht nur ist Modica einer der schönsten Orte, die man sich vorstellen kann, ein Aufenthalt in Rudia's hübscher Wohnung macht das Erlebnis perfekt! Die Bilder versprechen nicht zu viel. Im Gegenteil. Es ist hier bei Rudia noch größer und noch großzügiger, als es auf den Bildern zu sehen ist. Das Bett (mir persönlich ganz schön wichtig) ist urgemütlich, die drei (!) Balkone (vor allem der sehr große) sind schön, ruhig, dennoch zentral gelegen. Hier haben wir jeden Abend ausklingen lassen. Die Küche ist riesig und top ausgestattet (wir haben uns in den "Mokka"-Kaffeemacher verliebt!), der große Tisch lädt zum Verweilen ein und auch die Sofas sind super gemütlich... Es stimmt in Rudia's Wohnung einfach alles. Und eine der wichtigsten Sachen ist die: Rudia kommuniziert! Und zwar gerne, zeitnah, detailiert und sehr, sehr freundlich. Ich weiß nicht, ob es allmählich die Gastgeber überdrüssig sind, anständig zu kommunizieren, zu antworten und vor allem Fragen zu beantworten: Rudia ist da überaus zuverlässig und dabei super lieb. Du merkst es - ich schwärme hier von allem. Und ich meine das auch so. Diese nette Gastgeberin, diese schöne, saubere und geräumige Wohnung, dieses wunderschöne Städtchen mit seinen unzähligen Restaurants und bodenständig-freundlichen Menschen ist eine meiner allerbesten Erfahrungen gewesen. Also, wenn Rudia's Wohnung zu deinen Reisedaten verfügbar ist, zögere nicht mehr länger. Du wirst es nicht bereuen!

    Julia2018-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying here with my family. A wonderful apartment in a great location. Modica was beautiful, fun and lively. We explored many other places by car - including Marzamemi, which was great. Always enjoyed coming back to the Apartment. Very comfortable, clean and spacious.

    Adam2016-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Rudias apartment has been perfect for our trip to Modica. Enough space for 5 people, with an extra bed. Everything has been easy and Well organized. Communication with Rudia was fast and Nice and the apartment is Exactly like the pictures at airb'n'b. Thanks a lot

  • Mis compañeras y yo hemos pasado tres noches en el espléndido apartamento de Carmen, las fotos del anuncio son un fiel reflejo. Carmen muy amablemente nos pasó a recoger pues llegamos de noche y lloviendo y nos despistamos con la dirección facilitada. Desgraciadamente y a pesar de ofrecerse a acompañarnos a cenar y a visitar los alrededores no pudimos coincidir. Nos informó que ver y donde poder ir a comer en Módica y resultó excelente. A nuestra disposición en todo momento amable y simpática. Solo le sugeriría que dotara el apartamento de más menaje de cocina para facilitar preparar desayunos o cualquier otra pequeña comida para los huespedes alojados. Por demás si volvemos por Sicilia y el Valle de Noto contaremos con su alojamiento sin dudarlo. Totalmente recomendable. Muchas gracias por todo Carmen y ya sabes que te recibiremos con gusto si decides visitarnos en Barcelona. Un abrazo.

    Sílvia2015-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Juan Miguel2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • El apartamento de Carmen es tal y como se ve en las fotos. Acogedor, agradable y cálido. Cerca del centro de Módica, con un aparcamiento justo enfrente. Se puede ir andando tranquilamente y pasear por sus calles. La ciudad de Módica es divina, espectacular y sorprendente! Rica en arte y cultura. Sin duda, un buen destino desde donde hacer excursiones.

Además estuvo muy atenta a nosotras cuando le pedimos consejo acerca de turismo, restaurantes, etc. La casa está muy bien localizada, en un ambiente tranquilo y dispone de todo lo necesario para alojarse unos días.

    Cristina2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nuestra estancia en la Casa Amarilla de Carmen fue perfecta! El apartamento tiene todas las comodidades, es muy amplio, está muy limpio y dispone de aire acondicionado (muy necesario en agosto, cuando fuimos nosotros) La ubicación es muy buena pues tiene siempre dónde aparcar cerca y el centro está a menos de dos minutos con todos los servicios (restaurantes, tiendas, bares...) Carmen fue muy amable y atenta, nos aconsejó un montón de lugares, playas, restaurantes... para visitar! Carmen nos recibió con chocolates modicanos, típico de la zona y unos refrescos fríos. Si volvemos a Sicilia, volveremos a la Casa Amarilla. Un 10.

Ottime possibilità di parcheggio, nelle vicinanze è possibile trovare negozi per la spesa e tutte le piccole necessità. Modica e i dintorni si sono rivelati un'esperienza indimenticabile. Voglio inoltre aggiungere che Amarilla ha dato la sua disponibilità totale, h.24, per qualunque necessità....insomma, un accoglienza impeccabile...a 5 stelle!!!!

    "Vico Muccio" is in a central position, a few minutes from the main cultural attractions, bars, shops and local restaurants. The house, recently restructured, is nicely located in a silent alley of the old town with plenty of light.
    An incredible view on the historical center of Modica, the Baroque town in the south eastern part of Sicily declared World Heritage by Unesco for its Churches and beauties. Vico Muccio is in a central position, a few minutes from the main cultural attractions, bars, shops and local restaurants. The house is nicely located in a silent alley of the old town with plenty of light. The house has recently been restructured with local raw materials and by maintaining the local building traditions. This has made it comfortable and practical, with a well equipped kitchen that opens up on a delightful terrace, a bedroom and a spacious and warm living room. Rental includes: wi-fi, sheets, blankets and towels, a washing machine, a dish washer and an equipped kitchen. Modica is the ideal location to visit the history, the art and beauties of eastern Sicily, as well as to savour the traditional dishes and discover naturalistic routes. Ragusa Ibla, Scicli, Noto and Siracusa are all very close to Modica. Piazza Armerina and Agrigento are ideal locations for daily escursions. Local cousine has its origins in the countryside peasant tradition (scacce – focaccia like, pastizzi -rolls of bread pastry stuffed with peas or cottage cheese, arancini – rice balls coated with breadcrumbs, chocolate, granite – semi-frozen dessert), and is served alongside with delicious fish based dishes. Some of the most beautiful and wild beaches of the Mediterranean are only 20km away from Modica where you can practice sea sports. Donnafugata Golf: 20 KM. Modica is approximately 1,5 hours from Catania airport. Parking is available 3/5 minutes from the house.
    La casa è situata tra le scale di un silenzioso vicoletto della città vecchia. In posizione centralissima, a pochi minuti a piedi dai principali luoghi di interesse artistico, bar, negozi e ristoranti locali.
  • Una maravilla de casa en el casco antiguo de Modica! La casa es tal cual aparece en las fotos, muy bien equipada y decorada, con dos terrazas con vistas al casco antiguo, precioso! No conocimos en persona a Federica, pero se mostró atenta y dispuesta a ayudar en todo, vino una amiga de la familia encantadora a recibirnos, nos explicó todo lo que necesitabamos y nos dejaron pastas y galletas riquísimas de una pastelería del pueblo. Un verdadero detalle. Sin duda repetiriamos, súper recomendable! Gracias Federica!

    Carla2016-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Frederica's Unterkunft war wundervoll. Wir haben die tage mit unserem zweijährigen Sohn sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig und zentral gelegen und man kann die Stadt von dort fussläufig erkunden. Der Ausblick aus dem Bett, direkt auf die Stadt, war jeden Tag eine Freude.

    Maren2016-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo rientrati da qualche giorno da Modica e possiamo descrivere la nostra esperienza con una sola parola: MERAVIGLIOSA! Tutto è stato perfetto: Federica si è dimostrata una host splendida (ci ha lasciato anche un "dolce" presente di benvenuto!) e la casa è stata assolutamente al di sopra di ogni aspettativa: un vero gioiello di charme, luminosa, pulita, silenziosa, ordinata, attrezzata di tutto, in una posizione comodissima e centrale. Tutto è curato nel dettaglio, sia l'arredamento, che i colori delle pareti, che l'oggettistica: ci siamo innamorati perdutamente di questa casa!!! Le foto, seppur belle, non rendono pienamente l'idea di quello che è veramente questo posto...provare per credere! Noi eravamo in quattro (due adulti e due bambini) e ci siamo stati comodamente perchè la camera matrimoniale è ampia e i letti dei bimbi comodi e pratici. Loro erano assolutamente entusiasti!!! Per non parlare della vista che si può godere dai due terrazzi e di Modica in generale: un vero presepe!! Ce li siamo goduti sia a colazione, che per qualche cenetta "a lume di candela" (favolose!!!) La posizione inoltre, è favorevole per poter visitare tutta la zona sud orientale della Sicilia (Siracusa, Ragusa, Scicli, Marzamemi, Noto, la suggestiva Valle dei Templi, l'Oasi di Vendicari e l'Isola delle Correnti), che oltre a essere bellissima paesaggisticamente, è densa di storia e cultura. Consiglio a tutti questa fantastica location, che ci è veramente rimasta nel cuore!!!!!

    Rachele2015-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Federica's apartment for five nights. It was wonderful! The apartment itself is spacious, beautifully furnished, with loads of character. The views were stunning. It was well-stocked with coffee, sugar and water etc. The location was great, right in the heart of Modica. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Tom2014-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Siamo stati accolti da Enza che è stata gentilissima e disponibile, l'appartamento veramente accogliente ed arredato con gusto l'abbiamo sentito subito nostro, e la meravigliosa vista su Modica bassa, che si può godere dai terrazzi, ha reso indimenticabile il nostro soggiorno.

    Cristina2015-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had the pleasure to stay at Federica's house, which is located perfectly in Modica. It is a beautiful, spacious house and well equipped with everything you could possibly need, especially for an extended stay. The views are simply amazing! At night it was magical. You could lay down in bed and see the "Castle Clock" from the window. We loved it! Unfortunately, during our stay my husband became quite ill. Federica offered her help and advise if we were to need it. Her kindness and generosity will not be forgotten. If you go to Modica...don't miss this place!!

    Walter2015-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Federica's place was lovely - very well located with great views of the city. She was a wonderful host who arranged everything perfectly.

  • El apartamento es moderno, amplio y super limpio. LLegar a pie al centro de Módica es difícil. Con coche no hay problema

    Cristina2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • El sitio era muy acogedor. Ottavia y su madre nos dejaron agua y fruta en La Cocina y estaba buenísima! Muy simpáticos y agradables

    Clara2017-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Hemos estado muy contentos con el contacto y la comunicación. Tuvimos ayuda constante con el camino y donde dejar el coche,etc. La recibida fue muy agradable igual que toda la estancia. El piso estaba muy limpio y no nos ha faltado de nada. Esta a 15 min en coche del centro histórico de Modica, por lo tanto para alguien que no tenga coche es un poco lejos. Nosotros hemos estado muy satisfechos y recomendamos el apartamento definitivamente!

  • Alojar en el departamento de Ottavia ha sido muy cómodo, ya que se encuentra en una zona con muchos comercios y logisticamente bien ubicada para los lugares que deseaba conocer, por lo cual de noche no es una zona ruidosa. He encontrado el departamento muy simpático, limpio y cómodo, con todo lo necesario para una estadía perfecta. Ottavia y su madre han sido muy disponibles, la comunicación ha sido perfecta y más no se podría pedir.

    Karina2018-04-21T00:00:00Z

El departamento es amplio, todo limpio y muy cómodo. La zona es linda y queda cerca del centro historico. Nos recomendaron que hacer en Modica, donde comer y donde conseguir el mejor chocolate. Sin dudas vamos a volver!! MUCHAS GRACIAS POR TODO !!!

  • Ragusa es un destino hermoso . Lo disfrutamos mucho a pesar de las escaleras que muchas veces reemplazan a las calles , que a veces cuesta un poco transitarlas. El alojamiento es tal cual se ve en las fotos , y está muy bien equipado. Gaetano fue un excelente anfitrión.

  • Unas vacaciones inolvidables en un lugar inolvidable. El piso es encantador y realmente cerca de todo!! nos ha encantado!!

    Valentine2016-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Todo lo que se ve en la foto es igual de bonito. La casa esta muy bien ubicada para conocer Modica y desayunar en el caffe del arte, para cenar y tomar algo por la noche en el hemingway o para compras ya que la calle principal esta a escasos 30 metros. No obstante no hay ruido que perturbe el sueño. Hay nueve escalones de entrada que dejan sin aliento, pero todo el pueblo es asi. Repetiré.

    Silvia2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem! Clean, comfortable, and modern. It’s a small studio, but it’s been outfitted very smartly, so that space isn’t an issue at all. Rudia was very accommodating with check-in/check-out, and had lots of great tips for visiting and eating. The apartment is centrally located; we were able to walk everywhere, but almost everything in Modica requires a relatively steep climb up some stairs, so be prepared to struggle with your luggage if you overpack like we did! Otherwise it’s a wonderful choice for your time in Modica.

    Mélodie2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Modica is really amazing and Rudias place has a wonderful view of it and super well located! Clean, very confortable bed and quiet. The terrace and the little kitchen outside is perfect for nice weather. We enjoy our time there very much. We totally recomend Rudias apartment.

    Affacciato sulla piazza principale e sul corso Umberto, Palazzo Trebalate è il punto di partenza ideale per visitare la città: l'edificio, che risale ai primi del Novecento, è la soluzione perfetta per ospitare una famiglia o due coppie in vacanza.
    L'appartamento, da poco ristrutturato, si trova al secondo piano del Palazzo e gode di una suggestiva vista su Piazza Matteotti; è composto da un soggiorno comune dotato di una cucina e di due confortevoli camere matrimoniali, dalle qualità uniche, caratterizzate dall’amore per il dettaglio e la funzionalità. Le camere da letto, accuratamente restaurate, conservano gli arredi dei primi anni del ‘900 che conquisteranno gli amanti dello stile retrò e della cultura Siciliana: la recente ristrutturazione ha preservato i mobili originali, i pavimenti in cementine e gli splendidi lampadari in vetro soffiato di Murano per permettere ai propri ospiti di immergersi in un'atmosfera d'altri tempi; per garantire il massimo del confort moderno, le camere, con bagno ad uso esclusivo, sono state dotate di televisori ultrapiatti di ultima generazione e di condizionatori regolabili direttamente dagli ospiti.
    Da Palazzo Trebalate potrai visitare la città che da sempre affascina i viaggiatori per le sue strette viuzze, le mille case baciate dal sole e disposte sulla collina a mo' di presepe, gli edifici barocchi, i raffinati ristoranti e il sublime cioccolato.
  • La ubicación perfecta. El alojamiento precioso un palacio con unas vistas espectaculares. Modica es perfecto para desde allí hacer las excursiones a Noto, scicli, las playas.... Nos recibieron con chocolate , buenísimo!! Pastitas y canoli! Muy recomendable!

    Norka2016-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • La casa es muy agradable, tienes todos los utensilios que puedas necesitar, la persona que nos recibio nos trato muy bien dandonos todo tipo de detalles sobre la ciudad y contestando amablemente a todas nuestras preguntas. La ubicacion es inmejorable, todo muy limpio y en perfectas condiciones. Las habitaciones espaciosas, comodas y los colchones muy buenos. Excelente alojamiento.

    Rosa2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • La casa de Alessandro supera las fotos publicadas. Habitaciones amplias y comodas, muebles antiguos, dos baños y sala de lavadora secadora. Todo limpísimo y con una gran terraza con vistas inmejorables. Está cerca de todo: sumercado Decò (donde comprar de todo), bares, cafeterias y restaurantes. Aparcamiento gratuito a 5 minutos (mirar bien los sábados dónde aparcar, ya que hay un mercado de frutas y verduras). Alessandro fue muy gentil en sus correos, pero no llegamos a conocerle. En cambio, sí a su ayudante Pippo que fue el encargado de acogernos (y recibirnos de una forma muy dulce). Y el que nos informó de todo lo que se podía ver y hacer. Muchas gracias Pippo por tu amabilidad. En definitiva un lugar muy, muy recomendable. Gonzalo y Antonino.

    Gonzalo2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great location can walk to all the sights and do a bit of people watching over the piazza from the balcony. Would stay here again.

    Kerry2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans l'appartement d'Alessandro. Celui-ci est très bien situé dans le centre de Modica, très bien équipé et la vue est splendide. Si nous retournons dans la région nous choisirons sans hésiter le même logement. De plus Alessandro et Pippo sont disponibles et très réactifs pour la moindre demande. Je vous remercie encore. Grazie mille e a presto. Damien Laura e Léo

    Damien2018-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment in the centre of modica. This was a large, stylish, clean, secure and well equipped apartment with everything you need. The beds were very comfortable and the view over the square is amazing for people watching. Alessandro arranged for flowers, sweets and prosecco for arrival as it was my wife's bday. A very kind gesture! I would definitely stay here again. We are two adults and two children and they also set up the apt very well for families. Modica is a beautiful town and really comes alive on weekend evenings. We loved it.

    Camere in museo! Le Case degli Avi con il Museo Mùrika,in linea con la tendenza al "ritorno alle origini", è un progetto teso alla conservazione etnografica dell’antico abitare e al recupero e alla valorizzazione dell’identità dei luoghi. Gli ambienti ,dal richiamo ancestrale, sono spazi originari di un’antica fortificazione medievale finalizzati a scopi museali e ad una ricettività , non convenzionale. I pavimenti, i manufatti, gli arredi rimandano alla storia dell'antica Contea di Modica.
    Le Case Don Ignazio, Donna Maria e Don Nino sono unità abitative indipendenti, all'interno della struttura museale Mùrika, con servizi ad uso esclusivo. Si trovano all'interno delle Case degli Avi nel Borgo Antico, a Modica Alta, al Consolo quartiere antico di Modica, ad estrema caratterizzazione rupestre, vicino ad angoli suggestivi medievali. I tre alloggi, provvisti di una zona notte e di una zona giorno, possono ospitare fino ad un massimo di otto persone. Nella zona giorno si trova un esclusivo angolo cucina. La Case, decorate in maniera esclusiva con cementine e maioliche della migliore tradizione artigianale locale, presentano arredi essenziali di una volta, con materiali e complementi d'arredo originali, recuperati dalla tradizione locale e sapientemente restaurati
    Il Quartiere Consolo dove trovasi la struttura museale presenta particolari scenari urbani, tra le improvvise folgorazioni monumentali e le discorsive microstrutture architettoniche dei cortili, delle fontane, delle stradine, dei giardini odorosi di gelsomini e di limoni, in un raro ed insolito intreccio di scorci , scalinate e vedute mozzafiato.
  • We had a warm welcome for our brief stay in Modica. The host greeted us with a special serving of wine and Modica chocolate and provided local suggestions for sites and dining. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 5. The building is an amazing refurbishment and set in a quiet part of Modica for a peaceful evening after a long day. If passing through Modica again, we won’t look any further then here!

    Michael2018-06-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great find. Amazing place built in a cave and Giovanni's family have lived there since 600 plus years! Giovanni and his brother gives you an excellent tour of his place viewing cellars dungeons and passageways!! Lovely little courtyard in front with pomegranates ready to fall off the tree and a small lemon tree bursting with fruit. Great place for morning capuccino and cornetto 2 min walk to the left. Good eating recommended by Giovanni within walking distance. Drop off laundry next door. Walking down the hills to Modica centro was fun and coming back you take the "train" which stops 5 minutes away We stayed 2 nights. All good!!

    Kishore2018-10-18T00:00:00Z

  • Giovanni is a wonderful host. He and his brother were expecting us, helped us find a parking space and then showed us around their house with pride. The house and the rooms are wonderfully decorated. The history of the place is well shown. It is quite an experience to stay there, we certainly recommend it.

    Ana2018-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Non sono riuscita a soggiornare presso la struttura di Giovanni a causa di un intoppo causato da una forte pioggia che non mi ha permesso di raggiungere Modica. Nonostante tutto ho trovato un’estrema precisione e disponibilità nell’annullare la prenotazione dopo la conferma. Per quanto riguarda l’umanità e la comunicazione del Signor Giovanni, lo consiglio!

    Anna2018-09-15T00:00:00Z

    A wonderful historical home dating back to the 18th century in the centre of Modica with amazing views of the Baroque town. Three en-suite double rooms with all the modern amenities but a classic 1930s look and feel. Shops, restaurants, cafes and Modica's amazing pastry shops all within close walking distance.
    Sipario is a wonderful period holiday home in the historical centre of Modica with amazing views of the city. The original structure dates back to the 18th century and it has recently been restored to its 1930s look and feel. It offers all modern comforts with an elegant living space, spacious and fully equipped kitchen and 3 double en-suite and airconditioned rooms. A large terrace has spectacular views of Modica's baroque S. George Cathedral. There is also a laundry room and all necessities from utensils to bedsheets are there for you. Within the city, the house is strategically placed behind the Garibaldi Theatre. It is 80 steps up from Modica's main high street, where there are shops, restaurants and bars. As with many historical houses in Modica parking is available on the main street. Please be mindful of the need to go up steps to get to the house but the view of Modica from the terrace will make it worth your while! The name Sipario, which means Theatre Curtains, was inspired by the nearby theatre and refers to the theatrical effect of going through the doors of the terrazzo to be overwelmed by a breathtaking view of the city. Modica is a great place to base yourself to explore South-East Sicily - you will be in a vibrant, active city with lots of choices for restaurants and bars for night life - several beach destinations are only a short 15 minute drive from town while you can get to towns like Ragusa, Siracusa, Noto, Scicli, Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina with short drives (all under 1 hour). We can also organize cookery lessons, trips to wineries, olive groves, nearby towns - just let us know.
    There are pharmacies, several restaurants, bars, caffes, pastry shops, bakeries, specialty cheese shops, fruit vendors, meat vendors, fish vendors and a supermarket all nearby.
  • Great location, beautiful home! Thanks Katia :)

    Karen2018-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place centrally located in lower Modica (which is best) plenty of room for everyone and good amenities (including an espresso machine) A series of steps up to the house so you need to be ambulatory but good exercise if you are! Lots of places to eat and drink in walking distance and a lovely terrace for breakfast in the sun. Highly recommended

    Stephen2018-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Katia's place is in the perfect location for Modica. We loved the big terrace, the two upstairs bedrooms were particularly nice and with lovely views, and Katia was incredibly helpful with suggestions for places to eat and day trips to make. We had a great time cooking with her and learned so much about the food and culture of the area. Check-in and out was super easy and she was very responsive to queries. Would highly recommend a stay at Katia's!

    Liann2018-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Katja's place was a perfect airbnb experience, in all respects, location, comfort and a very nice welcome. Many thanks!

    Philipp2016-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Super host, great apartment, fabulous experience. Love it and would return in a heartbeat. She left fresh baked (by her) biscotti and focaccia for us, as well as tea coffee water, going above and beyond expectations. The views from the two terraces are to die for, and if you get a chance to take a cooking class with Katia, you will learn more in a few hours than a lifetime of cookbooks. Would return in a heartbeat. Loved it.

    Karl2016-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment with a amazing view over the old city. We in enjoyed your stay very much. Helpful host.

Les lits sont confortables, la cuisine est très bien agencée, les chambres disposent chacune d'une salle de bain. Katia nous a également mis à disposition les serviettes de plage... bien pratique! Je recommande vivement ce logement pour visiter la Sicile du sud! Hélène

    Hélène2018-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Katia is a great host and very attentive to her guests' needs. She is also very knowledgeable about the gastronomic culture of the area and a valuable resource for discovering the food and wine of the Ragusa area.

    Affitto metà della mia casetta in pieno centro storico. Si tratta di un simpatico monolocale, con bagno indipendente, soppalcato e con l'opzione di aggiungere un letto extra di sotto, il tutto in un unico ambiente. La cucina si trova in comune tra le due abitazioni, condivisa con l 'oste, munita di due ingressi separati. Ideale per ospitare una coppia, una piccola famiglia o amici. Il parcheggio è pubblico e gratuito ed è situato a circa 150 metri dall'abitazione.
  • Valentino y Rosa fueron unos anfitriones estupendos, facilitando en todo momento nuestra estancia; en una ocasión se fue el suministro de agua (por unas obras que estaban haciendo en la calle), y lo resolvieron rápidamente. El piso es muy acogedor y está muy bien ubicado. Modica es una pasada, muy recomendable.

    Daniel2016-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfecto para visitar Ragusa, Modica y Noto. Valentino fue muy amable y nos recibió con pastas típicas de Módica. Una casita limpia, equipada y muy acogedora pero sobretodo con una vista maravillosa de la ciudad. Volvería sin dudarlo para disfrutarlo más tiempo. Grazie mille! Perfect place if you want to visit Ragusa, Modica and Noto. Valentino was very kind and he welcome us with Modica's typical pastries. Clean, equipped and warm house with an amazing view of the town. I would definitely like to come back and stay longer and enjoy better. Thank you :)

    Cecilia2017-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • La casetta di Valentino è un gioiello panoramicissimo e comodo per raggiungere il centro in pochi minuti. Il soggiorno, anche se breve, è stato davvero piacevole.

    Gaia2017-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo alloggiato per tre notti in questo carinissimo monolocale soppalcato a poche rampe di scale dalla via principale di Modica (viale Umberto I). Valentino e Rosa sono due ragazzi molto simpatici con cui è stato anche molto piacevole fermarsi a chiacchierare e ovviamente due host impeccabili. L'appartamento era pulitissimo, dotato di tutto l'essenziale e con una vista della città spettacolare (specialmente la sera con i vicoli e le chiese barocche illuminate: un panorama da cartolina). Grazie alle indicazioni di Valentino e Rosa il b&b è facilmente raggiungibile in auto, con un comodo parcheggio e tranquillo ad un centinaio di metri di distanza. Che altro? È stata davvero una permanenza piacevole!

    Andrea2016-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Renovated apartment in villa with high quality finishes, furnished and with outside space and swimming pool. Ideal for families wishing to live the typical aspects of iblei places for a quiet relaxing holiday in a step from the center and from the most popular tourist destinations.
    Characteristic house in the court of an elegant villa surrounded by high stone walls in a dominant position (waterfront views Ragusa) for a quiet holiday in the suburbs of 6-15 km from Modica and Scicli, Pozzallo, Ragusa and the beautiful coasts.

  • Casa pulita e deliziosa. Ideale per chi cerca un posto silenzioso ma non del tutto isolato, a 300mt dalla statale, a meno di 5 minuti in auto da comodi supermercati, zona commerciale Modica sud e benzinaio. Il posto strategico per chi vuole visitare la provincia di Ragusa. A pochi minuti di strada dalle principali località turistiche della zona. Location in un baglio di campagna ristrutturato di recente e anche se in un posto silenzioso e defilato, si è certi che non si è soli perché nelle casette lì di fronte e sul retro, abitano anche almeno un paio di famiglie tra cui i proprietari. Ma la cosa più bella di tutte, la marcia in +, la fanno ancora una volta le persone. Gli host. Ci siamo sentiti accolti nel migliore dei modi, la signora Giovanna (la mamma di Giovanni), donna di gran cuore sempre discreta e sempre pronta per qualsiasi nostra necessità. Sono partito per andare da un host, oggi terminando la permanenza, abbiamo salutato con grande affetto e con sinceri abbracci, una carissima persona che ci è rimasta nel cuore. In sintesi, posizione strategica, posto più che meritevole, host SPECIALE! Grazie di cuore!

  • Se volete trascorrere del tempo tra Siracusa e Ragusa non perdete la Casa del Pirato. Tre appartamenti ricavati alle spalle di Una antica villa vi riporteranno indietro nel tempo e vi faranno respirare la vera Sicilia grazie anche a Giovanni ed alla splendida famiglia che vi accoglieranno. Non vorrete più andare via .... Ideale per famiglie.

    Mirco2017-08-26T00:00:00Z

Modica has excellent restaurants where to taste the genuine local recipes or the creative cooking of great chefs, we would be pleased to suggest you the best places according to your preferences.
  • 提前一年预定了西西里岛的行程,只有一天途径Modica,心心念念要住在这家可以看见教堂夜景和灯光的airbnb。 Luca人非常好,调整了一天开发给我们,房屋位置非常优越,步行五分钟可以前往教堂。我们是开车前往,需要提前告诉房东到达的时间,房东会指引你如何停车和到房子的路线。如果你也像我一样只住一晚,强烈建议把大件行李锁在车里,只能轻便的衣物用品去房屋,因为停车地点离房屋要步行一段5分钟的石头路,不适宜搬行李。 Luca是艺术家,他装饰的房间干净舒适,装饰优雅,浴室热水暖和,堪比五星级酒店。 阳台的景色无与伦比,有两个配有独立洗手间的房间,转角的小房间可以睡一个人,适合4人到5人出行。 房东非常友好热情,亲自接待我们并介绍非常多本地好吃的餐厅。但需要注意这里很少游客,早餐需要走到最底下的街道才有。 有机会来Modica的话,预定这家绝对真心推荐!

  • This is one of the loveliest airbnb listings in which we've had the pleasure of staying. The house is every bit as beautiful as the photos, the view is truly stunning, the terrace marvellous. Communication with Luca was seamless and uncomplicated, Aurora is very kind and took time to explain everything to us and answer all our questions. We were welcomed with an enormous platter of fruit, samples of the local chocolate and an assortment of delicious cookies and sweets. Although we didn't make use of it, we loved that there was a selection of wine available. Walking back and forth between Modica Alta and Bassa will keep you fit and allow you to eat more :-) Our favourite local restaurant was Accursio, where we had an exceptional meal and there is a wonderful wine bar, Rappa Enoteca, only a short walk from the house. We would recommend Luca's wonderful house without hesitation and hope to be able to return at some point in the future.

    Kim2016-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Der Aufenthalt in Modica hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Begrüßung und Verabschiedung verlief völlig reibungslos. Wir waren mit 4 Personen dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir haben gute Ausflugstipps und Restaurantempfehlungen erhalten. Der Weg zur Unterkunft führt durch sehr enge Gassen und muss daher zu Fuß bewältigt werden (ca. 2-3 Minuten). Der Blick aus dem unteren Stockwerk (Balkon) und dem oberen Stockwerk (Dachterrasse) sind ein Traum! Den Sonnenuntergang auf der Terrasse zu erleben ist toll. Kleiner Kritikpunkt: Das Bett im oberen Schlafzimmer war für unseren Geschmack viel zu weich. Alles in allem ist Luca´s Apartment absolut empfehlenswert

    Henner2016-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly amazing. Set up on the cliffs overlooking Modica Basso, the house is beautifully, stylishly decorated, centrally located and has two balconies with commanding views. The appliances are all modern, the kitchen is well-equipped, and we spent several nights in, cooking and baking and just enjoying our time together. There was fresh fruit and water awaiting us, and cleaning solvents, olive oil, salt/pepper/etc to get us started. This was one of the most romantic and interesting AirBnB properties I've ever stayed at (and I've stayed at many) and I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone. Fantastic!

    Nicholas2015-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very much welcomed. The situation of the appartment is great and the place very confortable.

    Philippe2014-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Luca’s home. It was a great location and the views were amazing! Everything you needed was in walking range. Very stylish and a lot of thoughtful touches. I would happily recommend the place to any of my friends or family.

    Mohan2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is very special apartment in a dramatic location overlooking the Baroque wonder of the San Georgio church in Modica. It is beautifully appointed and well equipped. Luca's colleague Amalia was attentive, kind and helpful.

    Victoria2016-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Aurora met us on our arrival late at night and gave us a warm welcome. She was incredibly helpful in assisting us with finding a walking tour and babysitter. Accommodations were perfect with plenty of room for two couples and a 10 month old. Beautiful apartment and excellent location. The walk to and from Modica Basa provided a short and sweet workout between delicious meals. Very happy we picked this location for our trip!

    + Cannolo y Chocolate Cata "Ammucciàta" significa oculto. Esta pequeña casa se encuentra en el centro histórico de Modica. Desde la terraza se puede admirar la catedral de San Jorge, con su famosa llave forma de escalera y la vista de la noche de la ciudad, ubicado en la colina. La ubicación está a sólo unos minutos a pie de la parada de autobús. Esto hace apartamento Ammucciàta una base ideal para explorar tanto las playas y la historia/arquitectura de la región.
    La casa tiene un cuarto de baño, una sala de estar/cocina y un dormitorio. Además, una terraza con vistas, donde se puede almorzar/cenar fuera (con barbacoa). En el sofá de la sala de estar se abre y se convierte en una cómoda cama para dos personas. La casa está situada en el centro histórico, pero es tranquila.
    Casco antiguo del barrio històrico, lleno de callejones, patios, terrazas y escaleras antiguas. Cerca de las dos iglesias más famosas de la ciudad. Encontrar mi guía aquí Airbnb y una guía turística impresa en casa.
  • El alojamiento es correcto,la ubicación fantástica y tiene una bonita terraza pero nosotros no repetiriamos ni lo recomendamos por lo siguiente: -el anfitrión no te viene a recibir y es muy pero que muy dificil contactar con él -el anfitrión no aporta indicaciones para llegar y es muy dificil de encontrar,nosotros estuvimos mas de una hora dando vueltas y Iacopo no nos cogió el telefono ni se preocupó por nosotros hasta 4 horas más tarde -el acceso al apartamento es a través de una calle muy empinada y con escalones que no recomiendo si se lleva equipaje pesado o se tienen problemas de movilidad -el wifi no funciona,no funcionó en los dos dias que estuvimos ni siquiera para enviar un whatssap, el titulo del anuncio del apartamento pone en letras mayúsculas WIFI, creo que esto no es muy honesto... -por último le pedimos recomendacions al anfitrión de que hacer o donde comer y no nos dio ninguna. Había leido críticas muy buenas de este alojamiento pero a nosotros nos decepcionó.

    Ana2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Desde el momento de entrar por la puerta hasta el momento de irnos estuvimos encantados de ese apartamento el lugar las vistas el entorno, todo! Una experiencia magnifica! Lo recomiendo

    Iñigo2016-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Casa incantevole curata nei minimi dettagli. La posizione è ottima sia per visitare Modica sia per spostarsi fuori dalla città (fermata degli autobus a 500m). Il terrazzino offre una vista splendida ed è ottimo per cenare. È stato un soggiorno piacevole. Torneremo sicuramente!

    Stefano2018-09-02T00:00:00Z

  • Alloggio eccellente, pulito con tutti i comfort anche extra(macchinetta del caffè), 2 televisioni, aria condizionata. Centralissimo a pochi metri dalla via principale con veduta sulla città e del Duomo di San Giorgio, balconcino relax un valore aggiunto. Tutto eccellente.

    Nicolò2018-06-27T00:00:00Z

  • Casa nel centro storico di Modica, arredata con gusto e molto funzionale. In casa non manca nulla. Abbiamo sempre trovato parcheggio nelle vicinanze, con un po’ di pazienza vista la sua posizione centrale, a 50 m da Corso Umberto. Dal terrazzino si può ammirare il tramonto sul Duomo di San Giorgio.

    Gabriele2018-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is absolutely perfect!!! Super location, very well equiped, with nice terrace. Everything superclean and new. Just few steps of the flat you have all the historical center with restaurants and bars. We didnt meet Iacopo but the communication worked well. Higly recommended!!!!

    The house is situated in Quartiere Cartellone, the ex jewish neighbor of Modica and has been recently renewed in full harmony with the baroccan tradition and taste. Check our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page @thesicilianescape
    The incredible view of the Domes of San Pietro and San Giorgio can be enjoyed from the terrace in the house or from the Piazzetta, the little square in front of the house. In fact no one else lives on this square and it's very romantic to have dinners there. You'll find already our table and chairs there. The house is composed by a double bedroom, a nice bathroom, a spacious kitchen/dining room and a living room which can easily become another bedroom. The greater part of the furniture comes from this area as well as the materials used during the renewal. The kitchen is decorated with Caltagirone's ceramic, the black pitch is present in the bathroom and so on.. Our mission was to give life to an abandoned building by maintaining the baroccan soul that so well characterize Modica, Scicli and all the valley of Noto.
    Modica is an attractive historic town in south-eastern Sicily, one of the area's UNESCO-listed Baroque towns. Modica is particularly famous for its chocolate, and it is an appealing destination for food-lovers, making a good holiday base
  • Strongly recommend!

    Zayn2017-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jeden z nejkrásnějších a nejvkusněji zařízených bytů, ve kterém jsme měli možnost bydlet. Skvělá atmosféra, nádherný výhled z balkónu na barokní panoráma. Možnost venkovního posezení. Skvělý servis! Vřele doporučujeme!!

    Jolanta2015-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo passato una bellissima settimana a casa di Caterina. A due passi dal centro ma in una zona molto tranquilla, con una vista spettacolare a 180° su Modica Alta, godibile dall'ampio balcone e da tutte le finestre. La casa è dotata di tutti i comfort utili per una breve vacanza ed è caratterizzata da una pulizia eccellente. Con il letto assai comodo e profumato ci si sente come a casa. L'aria condizionata è efficiente e riesce a rinfrescare tutti gli ambienti. Noi, comunque, l'abbiamo utilizzata per poco tempo perché la casa è ben ventilata e ben esposta. Sicuramente da consigliare.

    Alessandro2014-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Caterina's apartment is beautiful! The outdoor terrace and al fresco dining table is a real bonus too. It has everything you need, it's clean and couldn't be better located. We loved the traditional tiles and the super comfy bed. Caterina was a pleasure to communicate with and even gave us tips of the best restaurants in the area. Thanks for letting us stay!

    Ellen2014-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was really wonderful an had everything we needed, including an amazing view on modica ! Thank you for enabling us this fantastic stay :)

    Peter2015-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • It was great to stay one week in Caterina's place. It is full of character and the view is stunning! The flat has everything you need including a good air conditioning. Thanks, Caterina!

    Clarisse2014-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The flat was simply great, especially the view from the balcony. Modica is really nice and cosy. We pretty much enjoyed being there. Thank you to Pepe for picking up!

    Anja2015-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved Caterina's Hidden Gem ... and it really was just that. The views from the balcony and terrace are stunning and you really feel as if you are living in Modica, rather than simply just staying there. Importantly (for us) the apartment was quiet and the wifi and air-conditioning (when needed) worked. There are about 140 steps which lead directly to the centre of town - so the position is perfect although one should be aware of this climb, which we actually didn't find a problem. In summary, we would love to return!

    Nel ex ghetto ebraico della contea di Modica un angolo di pace e silenzio dove assaporare la vera Sicilia godendo di una meravigliosa vista sulle antichità della città barocca dal balcone e dalla terrazza dove è possibile cenare e godersi il relax
    An old house into the rock in the old Jewish ghetto of Modica in Sicily, recovery houses craft equipped with traces of the past ,ideal place to escape from the chaotic urban rhythms. Time has left a precious and valuable strain in this baroque city in the west of Sicily, Modica hides an ancient heart of the most beautiful in the world: the old city of Modica. The house consists in two bedrooms in part in the cave, a bathroom and a spacious living area with a kitchen, from the balcony and the roof terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view over the city and the Baroque church of St. George, patron saint of the City, and St. Peter. You can walk through the narrow and lovely streets or going down a few steps to reach the city center where you can taste the typical chocolate, the best of Sicily, and not only still made according to an ancient Mayan recipe, the delicious Granita (flavor ice drink) and cannoli or find other wonders of the local cuisine. The house is reached by foot, the narrow streets do not allow access to 'car that can be left near the house in (about mt 200) boarding school St. Anne High School. Modica, birthplace of the poet S. Quasimodo, a place where culture and art are mingle, and cobbled winding streets, steps that are on the verge of collapse as overwhelmed by a powerful earthquake or upheaval in the grip of a raging sea that has been suddenly petrified. Patches of lichens cover the walls of the old houses located next to monumental buildings. A mad genius seems to have had fun creating these topographic forms that are quirky and capricious vagaries of nature and man. Here you can visit the more than 100 churches, the castle that overlooks it, follow itineraries in different neighborhoods, visit its churches into the rock. The nearest sea is reachable by car in about 20 minutes and is Sanpieri (also served by public transportation) with the beach of pink sand dunes of "Pisciotto" topped with a decadent furnace resumed several times in the TV drama "Montalbano". Not far from the natural reserve of Vendicari with its wild beaches there is the small and cute Marzamemi built around a noble Tonnara (where you can find a really fresh tuna), for those who prefer the comforts of Marina di Modica, Pozzallo largely equipped and with a very live nightlife. The town has shops, a hospital and railway station. Is close to the most beautiful baroque cities of Sicily, Ragusa, Noto, Scicli, reachable in about an hour from Syracuse. You can also rent a car from Catania (at the airport are almost all companies) or convenient bus that in about an hour and a half will carry you to Modica.
    Poter fare un tuffo nel passato, il silenzio è la totale assenza di auto quindi di traffico cosa rara per chi vive in grandi città, la privacy ed un atmosfera che solo stando qui si capisce.
  • Michela and her friend made us very welcome showing us in to the house and telling us about various things we could do in the town. The house was basic but adequate for our stay. I would say that the climb up to the property was quite a haul and would not suit anyone with disabilities.

    Sarah2015-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful house with a terrace and a breathtaking view over Modica. The communication with Michela was very easy, everything perfect!

    Oliver2018-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • If you arrive around winter, be well prepared for cold. There are some heating machines and fireplace but there is no chance to make the flat warm enough (at least to us). Anyways, the flat was in a nice area and the enterior was well designed, we could feel the real sicilian athmosphere.

    Daniel2018-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • beautiful places, lovely terrace and great charm. lots is stairs to get up from the town but we enjoyed the exercise. módica is the most welcomeing town in Sicily and Michela's place is the perfect place to experience it from

    Louis2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Michaela's flat. The view from the main living room and roof terrace are just stunning. The interior felt really homely, full of gorgeous old furniture, really beautiful. The kitchen living area was super comfortable and a lovely place to spend time when the weather wasn't great. The kitchen was basic but clean and functional. We found the parking easily but were a bit confused by the directions to the flat. I called Michaela and her friend who was meeting us with the keys came to find us. Despite a bit of a language barrier, everyone was extremely helpful and friendly, we'd definitely recommend a stay here!

    Bianca2016-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had four lovely days at Michela's apartment. The location is fantastic. It is a charming walk down little lanes and alleys into Modica, but not recommended for people with mobility problems. The place is beautifully furnished and the roof top is magical in the evening as the sun goes down and the lights come on all over the town. Kichen facilities are basic. We enjoyed trips out to Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, the caves at Ispica and the beaches at Sampieri, Pozzallo and Donnalucata.

    Julie2014-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant stay in Michela's beautiful charming flat. The views are stunning from the roof terrace. The flat stays cool on account of being built into the hill. It is a little basic but was so charming. Modica is a really great place. There is enough for visitors without it being very touristic. You can get to several different beaches in about 30 minutes. We didn't meet Michela but she was very quick to respond to any questions we had and arranged for us to be met by the charming Luigi who helped us find the flat and recommended some nice places to eat and get coffee and cannoli! I'd highly recommend it.

    Toby2014-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 2 nights in Michela’s house while we explored Modica and the surrounding area. The house is in a great location overlooking the eastern slope of the old part of the town. It is quite charming and rustic with a lovely roof terrace. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great while wevwere there and the roofed leaked really badly in both the main living room and master bedroom meaning that we couldn’t use the bed on our second night. Michela offered us the option of moving to another house nearby but it was quite late in the evening and we weren’t happy to leave our son alone in the house, so that wasn’t an option for us. Modica is beautiful and we would recommend this house in good weather.

    Modica, Sicily, Italia

    Have breakfast alfresco within the pinkish walls of a terrace and enjoy the breathtaking views of the magnificent baroque cathedral of San Giorgio and ancient Modica. The typical local-style house has recently been completely renovated and furnished with style, the kitchen and bathrooms have received designer upgrades; some of the original details are still present in the soft color of the local stone, the beamed ceilings and doors, the old painted ceramic tiles and some antique pieces of furniture. Modica is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. Gay friendly hospitality.
    The house is independent; on two levels, has two bedrooms and can accommodate 4 people. From the windows you can admire a beautiful view of the Saint George Cathedral. A rooftop terrace, offers the possibility to stay or eat outside. Inside, on the ground floor is a living room, a dining room with a fully equipped kitchenette and a bathroom with shower; on the first floor, a large bedroom and 'en suite' bathroom with shower; the second bedroom is on the mezzanine. The entire house has been perfectly restored following the typical local style, using local stone, old hand painted ceramic tiles and has been furnished with antiques evoking with a light touch the simple and sophisticated taste of old Sicily. Bright and friendly, tkhe house is completely air conditioned. The grocery stores are within walking distance not far from Corso Umberto, as well as many excellent restaurants, taverns, cafes and pastry shops where you can relish the local cuisine and taste typical Sicilian confectionery and cakes.
    You can only reach Casa Stella on feet (as is the case with most accommodations in Modica) by taking a narrow street and several flights of steps from the central Corso Umberto I, where you can easily park the car. We recommend you to travel with light luggage. Modica is one of the Val di Noto cities classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. Starting from Casa Stella you can follow the characteristic alleys and go into the historical center to discover the baroque and neoclassical facades of the ancient palaces, the numerous churches, the panoramic views of one of the most beautiful towns of the Val di Noto, unanimously considered as one of the most interesting of Sicily. In addition to the cathedrals of San Giorgio and San Pietro, the Castle of the Counts and the noble palaces of the center, located near Casa Stella, being only 16 kilometers from the sea, Modica also offers the possibility to comfortably frequent the beaches and visit other historical centers of south-eastern Sicily, all of great artistic interest: Ibla, Scicli, Noto, Ortigia, Palazzolo Acreide, Piazza Armerina. The enchanting baroque style characteristic of the region, the ancient tuna traps, the artistic ceramics of Caltagirone, the places where the stories of Commissioner Montalbano are set, the numerous prestigious wine cellars, together with the famous Modica chocolate and the many gastronomic specialties, are the starting point for numerous theme visits. Once back from all these sytes, Casa Stella will welcome its guests in a unique and enchanting setting, in a really silent corner of the city, far from the noise but in the suggestive heart of the ancient Modica. A quiet drink or a dinner on the terrace with the spectacular view of the Duomo di San Giorgio in the evening lights will be one of the most beautiful memories of Modica. The grocery stores are within walking distance not far from Corso Umberto, as well as many excellent restaurants, taverns, cafes and pastry shops where you can relish the local cuisine and taste typical Sicilian confectionery and cakes.
  • The appartment of Andrea is in the very center of Modica, the well-known city ot Sicily with the 100 churches. The apartment is very well furnished and offers a fantastic view on the old city. The breakfast on the sunny terrace is a very nice moment. On the evening, "una passegiata" along the Corso Umberto gives a real touch of "dolce vita" If you stay in Modica don't miss Scicli (around 10 km away): it's at my eyes the nicest barock city of the Noto valley.

    François2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Andrea's place with my partner for three nights and our stay was perfect. We arrived by bus and Andrea had someone pick us up and help us with our bags even though the house is very close. We didn't meet Andrea but he was always very responsive when we had questions and was kind enough to give us restaurant recommendations, etc. The house itself is located right in the centre and close to lots of shops and restaurants, etc. It's a beautiful house and has been decorated beautifully. It also has an amazing terrace with views over the city. It has everything you need to make the place a home and is impeccablly clean. I highly recommend Andrea's place for anyone visiting Modica.

    Carolyn2017-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Comme à Ragusa ou Noto, il faut savoir monter quelques marches pour profiter de la vue mais ici la récompense est énorme, de la terrasse on embrasse Modica Alta et San Georgio nous fait face. La chambre à l'étage profite du même point de vue magnifique à profiter de jour comme de nuit. Pour le reste, la maison a tout ce qu'il faut, très confortable, bien équipée et décorée avec goût. De plus, elle est très bien située, a deux pas du Corso Umberto I ou l'on peut trouver commerces, bars et restaurant. C'était parfait !

    Laurent2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This appartment was a special experience for my girlfriend and I. It has traditional art combined with modern furniture. The view is amazing and very nice when you have breakfast on the terrace. If you rent a car you are in no time at the beautiful beach of Seracusa and the city of Catania.

    Rene2018-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment. Great location. Perfect as a place to stay while exploring the area.

    Betsy2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea’s place is in a wonderful location with a great view of Modica. The walk up from the main road is a bit steep and so quests would need to be prepared to navigate 60-70 stairs and some ramped alleys. We enjoyed the exercise and the view from the place was stunning. Andrea provided some great suggestions on places to eat and visit. We really enjoyed our stay in beautiful Modica!

    John2018-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • It was one of our best Airbnb experiences so far! Niccolò and Andrea are very welcoming hosts and their house is simply perfect. It is an old house in the centre of the town, freshly renovated and furnished with lot of taste in every single detail. We felt there very comfortable, and from the bedroom and terrace we had a stunning view over the whole town. We highly recommend it and will be there next time in Modica. Thank you guys, and greetings to Ginger!

  • What a gem of an apartment. Extremely high standard and tastefully decorated, everything you could possibly need, and a superb location. Yes, you need to climb the steps to get to it but what you end up with is a location with a stunning view and sense of seclusion whilst being very close to all that Modica has to offer. Shop's, bars and restaurants are all a few minutes away and free car parking is nearby. Andrea and Fabio couldn't have been more helpful and responsive. They gave great recommendations and answered any query or request that we had. Can't recommend highly enough!

Ma una cosa ti resterà impressa, la prima che non mancherai di notare: il placido silenzio che vi regna; e ti vengono in mente alcuni versi di un poeta locale: . . . qui, l'arduo rumore della vita si ferma timoroso, più non osa turbare la gran pace che d'antico ha il mistico languore. . . A te, sembrerà di trovarti in un'oasi di pace; in un grande chiostro ove vorresti vivere, forse, per sempre. A TAVOLA il territorio ragusano esprime tutta la sua gustosa varietà: Cannoli, Granita, Cassata, Biancomangiare, Frutta Martorana, Paste di Mandorla, Arancini e tante altre specialità siciliane che ritroviamo anche nella tradizione culinaria iblea. Tra i piatti tipici più noti della cucina iblea vi sono, le scacce, il Caciocavallo Dop e la provola ragusana, il Cioccolato di Modica e le Teste di turco di Scicli. Tra i primi piatti i cavati al sugo e i ravioli di ricotta, consigliamo di assaggiare anche le ‘mpanate, i ceci cotti con carne di maiale e il "macco", un passato di fave, il pesce fresco, i cucciddati e il pane fatto in casa magari condito con un po’ di capuliatu. Sarete sedotti dai sapori dolci, quali biancomangiare, cassata, torroni di mandorle, biscotti di mandorle, ‘mpanatigghie e dai soffici e morbidissimi macallè farciti di crema o di ricotta. Nella nostra provincia si produce anche ottimo olio, il Dop Monti Iblei, freschi ortaggi, verdura e frutta. Tanti anche i vini, il più rinomato è il Cerasuolo di Vittoria, unico DOCG siciliano. Non va dimenticata la carruba, frutto di un albero molto diffuso in queste zone e usato per fare biscotti, caramelle e altri dolci. -LA FESTA DI SAN GIORGIO è una singolare festa che a Ragusa non si festeggia il 23 aprile, giorno del santo, ma l'ultima domenica di maggio. Caratterizzata dalla processione che si articola per le strade di Ibla, la statua del cavaliere (rappresentato a cavallo, vestito come un antico soldato, armato di una lancia d'argento mentre affronta e uccide un terribile drago) viene portata a spalla dai fedeli e seguita da una folla di devoti. Per la grande occasione la chiesa viene addobbata con stendardi, fiori e luci e la statua del santo cavaliere e dell'arca santa (contenente le reliquie del santo patrono e di altri santi) vengono poste nei due altari laterali della chiesa per la venerazione dei fedeli. L'intera città - vicoli, strade, piazze, si veste di luminarie e di vivaci colori, inoltre le pregevoli porte intagliate della chiesa madre, che nel corso dell'anno rimangono coperte da due imposte, si aprono per la gioia dei fedeli. I festeggiamenti cominciano circa un mese prima, quando le due statue vengono scese, con un antico procedimento, dalle due nicchie laterali poste nelle due navate laterali, poi si attendono con ansia i tre giorni dell'ultima settimana di maggio (venerdì sabato e domenica) a suon di banda e di mortaretti si porta fuori il simulacro di San Giorgio. La statua che fu opera dello scultore palermitano Rosario Bagnasco verso la seconda metà dell'Ottocento è composta prevalentemente di legno di ciliegio, questo materiale infatti è di facile intarsio nella lavorazione con aggiunta di altri materiali ferrosi distribuiti nelle parti, opera di eccellente valore artistico ed espositivo, le forme infatti sono in equilibrio tra di loro, lo sguardo del cavaliere, la posizione della testa del cavallo in perfetta armonia con esso danno a questa statua equestre una sensazione di attraente folklore allegorico, ciò nonostante consente ai portatori di danzare quasi a passo di musica, di farla girare e di alzarla a braccia facendola "abballare" (ballare) come a simulare la cavalcata. La statua del cavaliere è preceduta da un'altra portantina sulla quale è posta la "santa cassa" in argento lavorato con le reliquie dei santi. La statua del santo patrono viene portata in piazza dove si forma la processione che, con il clero in testa, seguito subito dopo dalla statua del santo, dalla "santa cassa", dalla banda musicale e quindi dai fedeli comincia il giro delle caratteristiche vie di Ibla. Tra le manifestazioni collaterali, si può assistere a numerosi concerti musicali di artisti abbastanza noti, esibizioni di gruppi, sbandieratori ed infine il clou dello spettacolo dato dai suggestivi fuochi piromusicali. -LA FESTA DI SAN GIOVANNI BATTISTA, patrono della città e della Diocesi di Ragusa, si svolgono il 29 agosto, data del suo martirio. I solenni festeggiamenti hanno inizio il 19 agosto con l’apertura della nicchia del Santo e la traslazione del simulacro, varie manifestazioni culturali, artistiche e sportive, sino alla conclusione della festa il 29 agosto. Il giorno 27 la statua di San Giovanni riabbraccia i Suoi devoti per le vie della città fino all’arrivo in una parrocchia che Lo ospiterà per un giorno con canti, liturgie, veglie di preghiera, per poi ritornare in Cattedrale la sera del 28. Il 29 agosto è la principale festa di popolo, con la città che si stringe intorno al suo Santo con una chilometrica processione di ceri, il cui retaggio potrebbe essere riconducibile alla luminaria che aveva luogo durante il XVII secolo ad Ibla. In essa traspare il silenzio, la preghiera e una grande devozione visibile nei fedeli scalzi o con indumento rosso in segno di un voto o grazia ricevuta. Essi percorrono le vie del centro storico insieme all’Arca Santa, precedendo la statua che Carmelo Licitra consegnò nel 1861 alla fervida devozione del popolo ragusano, prendendo il posto di quella antica per ragioni non ancora chiarite. Ricavata da un tronco di cipresso, l’opera si impone sulla statua cinquecentesca per il suo impressionante realismo e una severità straordinariamente immediata. L’artista ha infatti estratto dalla materia un San Giovanni nell’atto di ammonire i vizi e la corruzione di Erode, ma è comunque un’ammonizione rivolta ad ognuno di noi. La bellezza viva e tangibile di questa statua, che sembra fatta di carne piuttosto che di legno, scuote le coscienze per sposare la causa della giustizia e della verità. La statua del santo viene portata in processione al grido di “Patronu Viva”, accompagnata dalla banda musicale, per le strade iblee. Questo, oltre ad essere un grande momento di devozione religiosa e di rinnovo delle tradizioni della città, è anche uno spettacolo davvero unico in quanto migliaia di fedeli, molti a piedi nudi, accompagnano la statua del Santo portando dei grossi ceri accesi per grazia ricevuta. Oltre la solenne processione, si accompagna un incantevole spettacolo pirotecnico che conclude i festeggiamenti. Per le attività ricreative ormai consolidate nel tempo bisogna menzionare la rassegna teatrale Mons. Pennisi che ha luogo nella splendida cornice in Piazza San Giovanni, la gara ciclistica notturna per le vie del centro storico e il Premio Ragusani nel Mondo, che assegna riconoscimenti a quelle persone, native in terra iblea, che hanno dato lustro alla nostra Provincia in ogni campo lavorativo in Italia e nel mondo. Tradizioni gastronomiche. Il giorno della festa di San Giovanni Battista per tradizione vengono preparati gli «gnucchitti rausani», tipico piatto di pasta fresca fatta in casa con farina di semola dura e uova, realizzata con il "pettine" e i "fusi", e preparata con brodo di pollo assieme al pollo ripieno. 24 giugno, giorno della Natività del Battista, che anticipa in maniera liturgica i Solenni Festeggiamenti di Agosto. I festeggiamenti hanno inizio nove giorni prima, il 15 giugno, con un momento solenne e significativo. Alle 20,15, dopo i Vespri e la Santa Messa, lo scampanio a festa e il raduno dei portatori, apertura della nicchia e svelata ed esposizione sull'altare maggiore del simulacro di pietra, "u niviru", del 1513, seguono momenti di preghiere. Grande importanza riveste il momento dei gemellaggi tra la comunità ragusana e altre realtà che venerano il Battista. Le varie processioni saranno accompagnate dal corpo bandistico San Giorgio “Città di Ragusa”. Durante la festa, vi saranno il Raduno del cavallo ibleo, la sfilata di carretti siciliani, calessi e carrozze. 26 agosto ore 20.00 – Processione con le Sacre Reliquie del Battista. 27 agosto ore 17.30 – arrivo in Piazza Poste del corpo bandistico San Giorgio “Città di Ragusa”. Ore 18.00 – Processione del simulacro di San Giovanni Battista, che muovendo dalla Cattedrale, raggiungerà la Parrocchia di destinazione, dove all’arrivo sul sagrato ci sarà uno spettacolo pirotecnico. Ore 21.00 - Piazza San Giovanni – Rassegna teatrale “Mons. Pennisi” 28 agosto, ore 8.30 – Raduno del cavallo ibleo – sfilata di carretti siciliani, calessi e carrozze. Ore 19.30 – Uscita del simulacro del Santo Patrono dalla chiesa SS. Salvatore e processione verso la Cattedrale, all’arrivo spettacolo pirotecnico sul Ponte San Vito. 29 agosto ore 18.30 – Solenne processione con l’Arca Santa e il simulacro di San Giovanni Battista seguiti dai fedeli con i ceri votivi. Ore 22.00 – Saluto ai fedeli da parte di S.E. il Vescovo, seguito dallo spettacolo pirotecnico sul Ponte San Vito. Trionfale ingresso del simulacro del Santo in Cattedrale Ore 24.00 – a conclusione dei festeggiamenti, spettacolari fuochi pirotecnici sul Ponte San Vito.

  • We had a lovely stay at Domenicos apartment. Close to Ragusa high town centre and 25 min walk to Ragusa Ibla. Domenico is very friendly, responding to messages quickly. We had no electricity and water for a few hours on our first night but Domenico was able to fix this. He left water, fruit and a small breakfast for us in the fridge :)

    Emily2018-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Il monolocale si trova sotto la casa degli affittuari e l'accoglienza è stata calda e famigliare, provvedendo la casa di cibo, acqua fresca e gli elementi per la prima colazione. Sempre disponibili, buona posizione per la macchina, centro di Ragusa alta a due passi, ragusa ibla a 10minuti in macchina a meno che non si voglia fare una bella salita per tornare a casa!

    Giulia2018-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Accueil parfait. Emplacement très intéressant car sur les hauteurs de raguse et possibilité donc de descendre tranquillement vers le bas baroque à souhait. De plus, le bus 11 vous laisse à 3 mn de chez Domenico pour le retour.

  • El departamento es muy lindo y cómodo, y bien equipado. La ubicación es muy buena y la guía que nos pasó Tiziana para llegar fue muy útil! Tiene una vista hermosa y el check in con caja de seguridad fue muy cómodo también. Aunque no pudimos conocer personalmente a la anfitriona, siempre nos respondió rápido y estuvo atenta a cualquier consulta.

    Anita2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Nuestra estancia fue genial. Eramos dos adultos con dos nignos pequegnos. El departamento tenía todas las comodides tal cual lo que describía en el anuncio. Se encontraba todo muy limpio. Si bien nunca conocimos a Tiziana, siempre se encontró disponible, sin demora, a responder nuestras preguntas, con información muy precisa. El departamento se encuentra al final de unas escalinatas, esto es a tener en cuenta en caso de movilidad reducida. Nosotros teníamos un cochecito de bebé, pero no era problema cargarlo entre dos. Cuando llegamos la hermana de Tiziana y su familia nos ayudaron con el equipaje y hasta acompagnaron al parking. La ubicación del departamento era muy buena, a pocos pasos del centro de Ibla, con posibilidad de llegar cerca en auto y estacionar gratis muy cerca, algo que no es fácil de encontrar en Ibla. Además, se encontraba cerca de las rutas para salir de la ciudad. En la esquina había un bar donde se podía hacer el desayuno. Recomendaría sin duda este departamento por su ubicación, comodidades y máxima atención de Tiziana. Además de que Ragusa es una ciudad increíble!!

    Mariana2016-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • Die Unterkunft war sauber, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und entsprach den Angaben im Netz. Die Kommunikation mit Tiziana funktionierte einwandfrei. Gerne wieder.

    Philippe2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy flat, in a great location between the old and modern town. We recommend this place. Tiziana has been a very flexible host.

    Thomas2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Bel endroit, tranquille, vue splendide ! Tiziana a été parfaite et notre séjour aussi.

    Florence2017-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • Le séjour à Ragusa s’est très bien passé. Nous avons loué cette maison de ville en plein cœur de la cité historique pour découvrir les beautés de Ragusa Ibla. La toute petite rue qui nous permettait de rejoindre la maison était en travaux mais notre hôtesse a très vite réagi et est venue nous chercher avec sa voiture pour monter les valises jusqu’à la maison. Un parking gratuit est disponible à cinq minutes à pied de la maison. La maison est très bien décorée et équipée. Compter 4 personnes max (2 chambre, une double et une deux lits simples. Elle dispose de tout ce qu’il faut pour passer un agréable séjour dans la région. Les promenades nocturnes directement à partir de la maison sont très agréables dans le centre-ville historique. Nota : les chemins escarpés et les très nombreux escaliers dans la ville nécessite une certaine aisance physique :-) ! Ragusa est idéalement situés à des distances raisonnables (compter 1h/1h30 de voiture quand même) pour découvrir toute la région, de Syracuse jusqu’à la Casa romaine de Casale.

    Emmanuel2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Tiziana was very good at communicating via email, prior to the date of arrival. We were running a bit late (the new part of Ragusa is very confusing), but Tiziana was very understanding when we arrived. She showed us everything we needed to know about her apartment and Ragusa Ibla. Her place is very spacious and spotless. The view from the upstairs balcony is absolutely stunning. Its location is also perfect! We left our rental car in the free public parking lot a few minutes away. Some say Ragusa Ibla is a bit 'sleepy', but it was my favourite city of the 3 places we stayed. The drive in the valley to the north is steep and spectacular with mountain top towns that are not touristy. Thank you Tiziana!

    Brya2015-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Eleanora was a fantastic host - great communication prior to our arrival, she organized taxis for us and gave us recommendations to the best restaurants. We loved the apartment - especially the roof terrace. The perfect spot for drinking prosecco! The apartment is very modern and clean and had all the provisions we needed for our stay. Thank you Eleanora! I would absolutely recommend and would love to visit again.

    Gillian2016-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect location for exploring this beautiful area of Sicily. Eleanora is a perfect host and her tips on places to visit and local restaurants was helpful. The apartment is spacious and very clean. I didn't realise it was on 3 floors with lots of stairs but this wasn't a problem. The outdoor space on the terrace was perfect with incredible views. If you like to stay in a town but need some outdoor space then this will suit. The area is safe and within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars. Beds were comfy and there is air conditioning. Eleanora is a thoughtful host. She was waiting for us on arrival and took time to welcome us. It was easy to park the car at the bottom of the steps near the apartment. We loved staying here and would recommend this place to everyone.

    Kate2018-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Casa molto spaziosa, ma con dotazioni essenziali. Bellissima terrazza. Eleonora ci ha dato molte informazioni ed è stata molto disponibile, anche per imprevisti ed in orari scomodi .

    Marco2015-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Eleonora's place is awesome! The apartment is clean, modern (without being cold), and the rooftop deck is quite special. We didn't think we'd spend much time on the rooftop, but its so nice up there. Eleonora's restaurant recommendations were spot on. Her neighborhood is cute and quiet - great for just walking around. We are really happy we chose Modica over Noto. Lastly, Eleonora was very responsive, kind, and welcoming. We highly recommend this place.

    David2015-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in Eleonoras apartment. It was very spacious, gorgeous views and well equipped. We would recommend this place just on the rooftop! Eleonora was very communicative and provided excellent tips on restaurants and activities. Highly recommend this stay!

    Sebastian2015-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Una cartolina su Modica..... Vista stupenda, peccato che il tempo non ci abbia dato la possibilità di sfruttare la splendida terrazza da cui si gode un panorama mozzafiato sulla parte più caratteristica di Modica. E' stato tutto come ci aspettavamo, la casa è ampia accogliente e molto pulita. Grazie speriamo di ritornare con il sole!!

    Monica2015-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb places I have stayed at. the view from the terrace was stunning and the apartment was huge! The bed was very comfortable. I would highly recommend Eleonora's apartment.

  • Beautiful, luxurious house garden and pool. Very relaxing stay and cool in the SIcilian heat. Adele and Tonino were very friendly and helpful and generous. A wonderful place to stay.

    Helen2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • Adele and Tonino are fantastic hosts. They made us feel really welcome and were always there to help. The area is upper Modica a quiet place and traffic free. You're surrounded by greenery and nature. Fantastic place and I can easily say it's the best Airbnb accommodation I ever had. We enjoyed our days relaxing by the pool. Cooking BBQs, we got fresh eggs from the chickens. They have a nearby field with goats (kids love it) , and the owners let us take veg fresh from the garden. The place is big , comfortable beds, good quality linen. Nothing was missing. Just a few minutes drive you'll find restaurants, cafeterias, and most important gelaterias. The property has great views onto the valley, a drive way for the car , a dishwasher, a pizza oven , and heating for winter. Simply fantastic. We'll definitely go back .

  • We had a wonderful time in the house of Adele and Tonino. It is very spacious and you find everything you need. We enjoyed the big garden very much. And we appreciated the opportunity to take fresh vegetables from the garden and eggs from the chicken. Our 10-months old son loved the pool and the goats. We can highly recommend this house to other travellers.

    Daniela2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were made very welcome and this a perfect spot to visit the Baroque Triangle, just outside Modica but very peaceful as you look over the valley. Loads of space and a kitchen to die for! Lovely terrace/garden but we were too early to take advantage of the pool. Next time!

  • super maison. très bon accueil. extremement bien équipée belle piscine et tres beau jardin Merci

    Didier2018-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Rez de jardin lumineux et spacieux (encore mieux que sur les photos) avec un accueil des plus sympathiques de la part d Adèle et Tonino qui font l'effort de parler l'anglais et le français. La conception de la maison est très agréable et permet de s y sentir "comme chez soi" immédiatement. L'équipement concernant la cuisine est complet (sauf peut etre une théière!!) et le panier d'accueil très complet et judicieux. Quant au jardin, la piscine et la vue...tout est vraiment très agréable. Nous aimerions garder un peu cette adresse pour nous! Etre dans une jolie maison, à 5 minutes d une ville superbe en compagnie de gens sympathiques mais discrets.. que demander de plus! Encore merci

  • Come sempre accade, i luoghi sono fatti dalle persone....Tonino e Adele non solo sono riusciti a creare una piccola oasi di pace a 5 minuti dalla bella Modica Alta, ma sono anche ospiti eccezionali,capaci di trasmettere l’amore per la propria terra già dalle prime parole. Casa molto accogliente, arredata con gusto, giardino privato al profumo di carrubbo e ulivo, il tutto completato da una piscina ad uso esclusivo.

    Casa Donna Vannuzza del gruppo Case degli Avi, è una Casa grotta, a due livelli, con evidenti tracce dell’uso promiscuo dell’uomo nel corso dei secoli, dai tratti decisamente emozionali. Accogliente ed intima dove il tempo sembra essersi fermato, racchiuso da un’atmosfera ovattata che lascia fuori ogni segno del presente.Particolarmente scenografica a piano terra la delimitazione della zona giorno dalla parte aggrottata dove in una cavità è allocato il bagno.Letto sul soppalco con volta a botte
    Casa con grotta a due livelli, accogliente ed intima, dove il tempo sembra essersi fermato, racchiuso da un’atmosfera ovattata che lascia fuori ogni segno del presente. Di pregio nella camera da letto, un’antica finestrella che nei tempi andati svolgeva il ruolo di spioncino, non solo per riconoscere chi ci fosse nei pressi della casa fortificata stile gotico, ma anche, in casi estremi, per saettare i malintenzionati
    Il Quartiere Consolo, dove trovasi la struttura è la porta di ingresso alla città vecchia. Un quartiere come un grande terrazzo costituito dalle alte, fitte ed omogenee abitazioni della via del Calvario con l'omonima edicola, un Borgo con caratteristiche difensive, con alle viscere vie di fuga rispetto a possibili pericoli. Punto di osservazione per eccellenza il campanile dell'antica Chiesa di Sant'Antonio di Padova.
  • Excelente anfitrión. Es una casita Muse de varias habitaciones/apartamento. Giovani es un gran anfitrión: simpático y dispuesto.

    Ignacio2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni e il suo b&b sono fantastici! Abbiamo avuto complicazioni di comunicazioni per colpa mia ma Giovanni è bravo puntuale e caro e la casa degli avi una delizia! Consigliato Martina

    Martina2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Location unica, ricca di atmosfera e di storia, splendidamente raccontata dal professor Giovanni. Un'occasione imperdibile per chi sa apprezzare lo spirito dei luoghi. Ottima posizione rispetto a Modica Alta, è collegara alla città bassa da un trenino turistico.

    Osman2018-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Degli Avi is a unique place to stay! Giovanni and his family were there to greet us, show us around and make us welcome. They had decorated our room with candles, rose petals on the bed and gave us a lovely bottle of wine, as we were celebrating our anniversary. It was a lovely touch. Nothing was too much trouble- they booked us a table at an Osteria, then helped us get there, and gave us a booklet of discounts for local shops and restaurants. The room is in part a grotto- as in a cave! It’s the way folk in Modica lived many centuries ago, but brought up to date with a lovely little shower room, kitchen area and mezzanine level bed (which was very comfy!). The whole place has been renovated by Giovanni with great skill and care. It’s very beautiful and an experience not be missed! You can park very close by too!

    Petrina2018-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a”must” when visiting Sicilia! Live in a cave in a fantastic city. ”Il patrone” Giovanni and his brother, daughter and employee take care of you and enjoy your stay.

    Peter2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truly wonderful place to stay in the amazing Modica. Giovanni and his family could not have done more - their hospitality is outstanding and their local knowledge is second to none. The accommodation is extraordinary and I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

    Rebecca2018-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni’s “grotto” apartment is a must-see. Combining traditional Sicilian habitations with modern amenities, the room was an absolute delight. We also very much enjoyed Giovanni’s hospitality and the tour of his in-house museum on the history of Modica. As the place is located in Modica Alta, it’s a bit of a climb from Modica Bassa (as the names suggest) and the Corso Umberto I.

    Baptist2018-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Giovanni was very responsive and helpful with some local instructions. The place is very well located, comfortable and clean. Thanks Giovanni!

    Il Vicoletto di Maela è una casa indipendente con ingresso dal vicolo privato al quale si accede tramite un cancelletto; è ricavato utilizzando sapientemente la roccia che la completa rendendole un'atmosfera unica. Passare qualche giorno in una casa-grotta è davvero come trascorrere una vacanza nella vacanza !
    Gli ospiti fumatori hanno a disposizione un salottino all'aperto nel vicoletto privato, ideale anche per la prima colazione.
    Il vicoletto di Maela, è situato nel più antico quartiere di Modica, ed è tra le zone più apprezzate dai turisti, per la tranquillità, e per la vicinanza al centro storico.
  • Great, modern and stylish place. Sleeping in a cave is something very special. Though, there were some fungus problems in the bathroom. I guess that's one of the ventilation problems what comes with a cave. :)

    Jennifer2018-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Soggiornare in una grotta non è stata una esperienza qualunque. L'appartamento è davvero carino molto curato nei particolari. Modica è un posto davvero incantevole consigliamo caldamente un soggiorno perché ne vale veramente la pena. Naturalmente nel vicoletto di Maela un posto che vi sorprenderà. Un ringraziamento particolare a Simona per la splendida ospitalità.

    Conxi2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This must've been my best AirBnB stay so far. The owners are incredibly nice and very accurate in terms of communication. As it was very hot when I arrived, it was incredibly attentive that they prepared a big bottle of water for me. A little chocolate as present from Modica was something I was very happy about. All in all, nothing to complain about, highly recommendable - not only because of the great experience of actually sleeping in a cave! :)

  • È un appartamento semplice, arredato in maniera fantasiosa e abbiamo passato un soggiorno eccellente e gradevole. Tutto era pulito e sistemato e inoltre il sig. Pietro è una persona super disponibile e gentile. La posizione è perfetta per muoversi a piedi nel centro di Modica e a due passi dalla zona dei locali serali e ristoranti. Qualora voleste passare dei giorni a Modica, vi consigliamo senza dubbio questa casa.

    Alessandro2018-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Abbiamo soggiornato da Pietro per 3 notti e ci siamo trovati molto bene. Posizione centrale per tutto ciò che avevamo in programma di fare (a circa 20-30 minuti di auto si riesce a raggiungere Ragusa, Pozzallo, le spiagge di Sampieri, Marina di Modica e Marina di Ragusa,ecc...). Pietro ci ha accolti davvero bene, rendendosi molto disponibile e facendoci sentire a nostro agio con tutti i comfort di cui dispone il suo alloggio. Modica poi è davvero una bellissima città da visitare, ricca di fascino e di storia.

    Federica2018-08-12T00:00:00Z

    Giulia2018-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • A great place in Modica Alta. Pietro is enthusiastic and welcoming. Coffee, pastries, yogurt, jam, water were provided for the week I stayed, and I was invited to make use of pasta, sauce and biscuits as well. Always managed to find a parking space within a 5 minute walk. All in all, an excellent choice for a base to visit Modica, Scicli and Ragusa.

    Allen2018-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Pietro è una persona disponibile e gentile. Il suo pulitissimo appartamento è completamente nuovo e dotato di tutto il necessario per la colazione e per cucinare. Inoltre si trova in un tranquillo quartiere al centro di Modica Alta. Decisamente consigliato!

  • Il nido è il posto ideale per soggiornare a Modica. Nuovissimo, recentemente ristrutturato e arredato con gusto, gli spazi sono organizzati alla perfezione. Il letto è molto comodo e il bagno moderno con doccia grande. Sabina è stata l'ospite perfetta, dandoci indicazioni e consigli su cosa visitare e assaggiare. Inoltre al nostro arrivo ci ha fatto trovare una tavoletta di cioccolata tipica. Torneremo sicuramente..

    Cecilia2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Il nido di Sabina è molto ben curato, comodo, in ottima posizione per visitare Modica alta e bassa. Sabina è stata un ospite gentile, disponibile e precisa. Consiglio questo alloggio a chiunque voglia godere delle bellezze di Modica.

  • Il Nido di Sabina e ‘ davvero un piccolo gioiello, elegante e comodissimo , non manca nulla ! E’ stato un bellissimo week End nella splendida Modica! Sabina e’ un host attenta e gentilissima! Top Grazie Roberto e Katia

  • We’ve had an amazing time at Sabina’s apartment. Profile pictures looked great but the apartment itself was even better! Newly redecorated, stylish, with tasteful touches - it really did feel like at home. Location is perfect, Sabina is a dream host who will go extra mile for a guest, no matter whether you ask for it or not. She has shared a lot of great local tips which i’d Really recommend to take on board and try. Beautiful place, awesome host, top-notch hospitality. We’re looking forward to coming back. Thank you!

    Tania2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Make sure that you think again before booking this place as you might be left outside without a place just like me

    Laurie2018-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse tant pour le caractère authentique de ce lieu que pour son confort, sa propreté impeccable et ses commodités (tout est à disposition pour se faire à manger avec commerces de bouche à 5min à pied). Un vrai petit nid ! De plus c'est une base de départ idéale tant pour découvrir les trésors architecturaux que les quartiers populaires de Modica qui, à la différence des autres villes baroques, est beaucoup moins fréquentées par les touristes. L'accueil de Sabina est plus que sympa et gentil : elle viendra vous chercher si vous ne trouvez pas le chemin.

    Extraordinario. Hicimos del apartamento de Antonio nuestra casa durante los ocho días que pasamos en Sicilia. El lugar perfecto para descubrir Palermo a pie. En enero de 2016 con vistas a las montañas nevadas incluidas.

    La casa es especialmente bonita, está decorada con un gran gusto. Tiene todo cuanto se pueda necesitar y es muy tranquila para descansar. Además, está muy bien situada para visitar Palermo, una ciudad muy especial, que me ha encantado conocer. Fabio es muy amable y nos ayudó en todo lo que le pedimos. Él y su agradable esposa nos recibieron muy cálidamente y nos aconsejaron sobre qué ver y donde comer. También recibimos su ayuda para desplazarnos al aeropuerto. Nos sentimos muy felices por haber elegido el alojamiento y muy agradecidos por la buena atención.
