A lovely house and nice hosts

5 of 5
Daniela was extremely helpful and considerate throughout our stay, even meeting us in Modica and guiding us to the house which is in a very quiet spot. The house is clean, well equipped and spacious. It is very comfortable. The only slight negative is that sitting outside is not as shown on the website photos. I think that some photos are of the owner's private garden. The location is excellent for visits to many interesting places.

We spent a lovely two weeks here - the owners were very proactive ( contacting us in advance and arranging a meeting place so we could get to the villa... all through the powers of google translate. The villa itself is a secure compound surrounded by its own little oasis and has a beautiful pool and garden. It's all about the outside space here. The location is good- 20 mins into ragusa old town and about the same to the lovely beaches of marina de ragusa- modica is only 30mins away and Syracuse about an hour and a half . We had a wonderful time here. The only minor points (like the French review) the villa is a little light on self catering essentials like wine glasses, cheese grater , oven dishes and for people like me who like to make pasta / pizza anything like a rolling pin or pasta machine. At the time of our visit there were cats and kittens there which our kids loved but my wife is allergic so this was a bit of an issue (resolved by carrying a water pistol at all times!) The owners have noted not all people are animal lovers now :) All in all an excellent stay in peaceful surrounds. Grazie Mille!
