The apartment is very well furnished with everything you could possibly need for your stay and is well located for both Modica itself and visiting surrounding towns. Iolande was a great host, and was able to answer any questions we had very promptly. Highly recommended!

It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped - Kaethe had thought of everything you might need. The huge garden was a delight to relax in and the pool was pristine and in a really lovely setting. Kaethe was very welcoming and friendly, baked us a delicious cake, told us when there were local events happening she thought we would enjoy and even bought presents for our children. Casa Linde was in a quiet and felt secluded and was brilliantly placed for visiting all the beautiful towns nearby. You will need a car if you stay here but apart from that it is perfect. Incredibly good value and a wonderful host - I can't recommend it highly enough.
