It's a spacious very clean and well-equipped apartment with excellent outdoor facilities. In November the pool was closed but there was varied and flexible seating on the extensive patio which enabled us to catch some of the welcome sun. Käthe was a lovely host, bringing us fresh oranges and lemons and some wonderful cake! There are supermarkets nearby and the marvellous baroque town centres of this area are easily accessible. The main road nearby led down to Marina di Modica and we were able to relish warm sun by the Med at the pleasant bar on the beach. There are couple of points worth noting. The TV has just Sky news in English (we took a laptop with downloads and Netflix...). Casa Linde can be found up the road opposite the Peugot/Citroen dealer which leads to the small AST depot (the current HomeAway map shows it further along the main road!). If coming from the motorway from Catania it's better to follow the Google route rather than the Garmin Satnav one we used. We'd recommend Casa Linde as a good all-year-round choice for south-east Sicily.

Found the villa on the internet so always a concern but the villa and owner exceeded all of our expectations. George and his wife were amazing hosts. He was there to greet us and guide us in on the phone (even though it was late at night) and we had a fantastic, Sicilian lasagne prepared in the oven for us and some essentials, including a bottle of wine. He left us to it, but was always at the end of the phone for restaurant recommendations or bookings and the children loved him due to his 3 rules for children whilst they are there: "Fun, fun, fun!". And fun they had. Heated pool, full size tennis court, table football, table tennis, rope swings, zip wire, their own playground with ride on toys and a mini farm/zoo with goats and chickens and a donkey. The highlight was going to collect eggs with George. The villa had everything you needed. So spacious and added bonuses of great wifi, lots of english films, netflix and even toys for the baby. The pool was absolutely stunning. Spotlessly clean. A bit cool for me in October as you'd expect but the kids didn't seem to mind at all. Plenty of comfy, modern loungers around it to relax on and admire the views. Heaven! Peace and quiet, secluded with vast views yet so close to the gorgeous, historical centre of Modica, where George can tell you all the best places to go. Plenty of places to visit nearby too. A truly amazing, huge, family holiday villa for young and old. Will definitely return!
