Modica itself is a very nice town to visit and the countryside is lovely. Not to far to the local sites Ragusa 30 mins, Siracusa circa 1 hour. The house is out in the country and the grounds are gated and walled. There are two decent looking restaurants within walking distance, didn't go in as had babies with us and the restaurants open quite late (for Brits). Communication with Giorgio was very efficient, but all in Italian. In the days of google translate generally no problem, but a guide to the house and info about the local area in English would be a good addition. The gas, electric and local taxes were paid at the end of the stay and a schedule of unit costs in the house would have helped us prepare for departure. Stayed off season. The house has everything we needed. Unfortunately weather wasn't great and perhaps the layout isn't ideal if the weather isn't nice as the communal sitting area has just one sofa, there were lots of other seats, but not of the comfy variety. There is a pool, but it is closed at this time of year so can't comment on that. So excellent house, and helpful owner would be 5 stars, but a few minor niggles

Everything you could need is provided including kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, a stereo and tv. Basic ingredients (tea, coffee, oil, salt pepper etc) were available as were maps and guidebooks. There is good information about the town and recommendations for local restaurants which we followed and agreed with. There is a very reasonably priced supermarket a short walk away. The apartment is in the heart of the old town and staying here feels very authentic and off the beaten track - you are surrounded by local people living their daily lives. It was quiet and secluded with glorious views. The terrace has views of Chiesa San Giorgio as well as the old town. Air Con works well. There was a problem with the water when we first arrived (outwith the owner's control) but it was quickly resolved with a personal and attentive service. We would stay here again and would recommend it to friends. The apartment provided excellent value for money and the owner was easy to contact and deal with. Key collection was very easy - the best we have experienced as there was no need to agree a strict time in advance and end up standing around waiting. Fantastic holiday.

It was everything it claimed to be & then some. The owner & his family were absolutely the best hosts.....both helpful & knowledgeable about all that Modica & southern Sicily have to offer. Its proximity to both Modica & Frigintini was just right. I would not hesitate to recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. We plan to return again.
