Can't recommend enough!
The villa is spacious, spotlessly clean and perfectly equipped. The pool is huge and as inviting as the photos suggest. The lush gardens surrounding the property are beautifully maintained.
The villa is situated up a securely gated drive, really out in the middle of nowhere (there are only two empty neighbouring properties), which offered total privacy and fantastic wide views down to the coast. The lounge stereo also has speakers (disguised as rocks) in the garden (no 3.5mm audio-in or bluetooth, so take CDs or USB stick). A very stylish car port in the drive kept the sun off our car during the day.
It was hot (unsurprisingly!) during our stay and the aircon in the bedrooms and dining area offered welcome relief and a good night's sleep. We opened the sliding doors, front and back to allow the air through the enormous lounge space, but kept the glass doors to the rest of the house shut - this worked perfectly.
The only downside was the galley kitchen, but I prepared most of our food in the dining area and although I was a little disappointed initially, it all worked out fine, especially as the kitchen has everything you could need.
We had two minor issues but these were fixed as soon as reported and the keyholder was lovely and very helpful.
A few interesting places to explore nearby - we especially enjoyed the Cava D'Ispica with its caves and catacombs.
Final point - very few insects here! No mosquitoes to be seen really (late July). Enjoy!
This beautiful studio apartment was built in a refurbished old building and designed impeccably by the Gum Studio architect company based in nearby Ragusa. The apartment is very stylish, with lovingly sought furniture and quirky features (such as a shower in the middle of the apartment and a funky four poster bed. The balcony overlooks old Modica, but the photos don’t do it justice. The apartment is in a sleepy part of town, but not far from local wine bars, cafes and pastry shops! The host was very welcoming and when the gas hobs didn’t work on the first night they promptly arrived to fix them (we just needed to open the gas cannister outside).
You definitely need a car to stay here - otherwise you’ll miss out on the rich surroundings, including beautiful Noto and funky Marina di Ragusa and Marina di Modica.
We are two young healthy men, but the hike back up to the apartment from the old town left us breathless - lot of steps! But very much worth it. We couldn’t recommend this place more.
