The old house up a tiny street is imaginatively restored and has a great, well-equipped kitchen which we enjoyed cooking in, with patio doors on to the balcony. It did not feel like a holiday home but like a home which it is for the owners, David and Barbara Morrrow. We were met at the designated meeting place without a problem by their local representative Giorgio who would always have been on hand to help If advice were needed. Modica is a genuine old town which actually has 2 working flour mills On the Main Street . Do you get that anywhere else ? Surrounding Towns of Noto, Scicli and Punta Secco are beautiful and excellent to explore if you have been inspired by the TV detective Montalbano as we were!

We loved the swimming pool and tennis court. My 3 year old was delighted with the sand pit, tree house, animals and play area. George is a fantastic host, so friendly and helpful. We arrived late and they had a delicious dinner ready for us. The house also has toys and all the essentials for young kids such as a cot, high chair, baby bath and bed rail. There is lovely outdoor areas and a BBQ. Really they have thought of everything. We can't wait to go back!
