We would highly recommend the area and these villas as a place for a relaxing holiday in a very authentic Sicilian environment. We did have disturbed nights by dogs howling from neighbouring properties, but that was not a fault of the villa owners, just one of those unfortunate things, but aside from that it’s a lovely peaceful location.
Our children loved the friendly cats at the properties, and seeing many wonderful-coloured lizards too. The flowers in June were stunning around the beautiful stone buildings.
The pool is a great size and very clean and we made a lot of use of it. It would be good to have some new, functioning sun loungers for the adults to properly relax by the pool as well.
The location is fantastic for Modica town, & for the wonderful beaches of Marina Di Modica, as well as those a bit further over on the east coast and the Ionian Sea.
We were made to feel very welcome and were treated to wonderful local produce home cooked by Basile and his family. We were also very grateful to Basile for taking us to local food producers, which was a wonderful experience for us. What a lovely family and we will never forget the whole experience. Our parting gift of olive oil was a real treat.
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was the small things which would really make it perfect, like the fact the showers run boiling hot or freezing cold making them difficult to use, it would be good if the outside furniture was more comfortable for sitting at to eat meals, as we couldn’t reach the table to eat from the chairs as they were extremely low. It was hot though, so we just ate indoors and the air conditioning helped a lot. And if the pool area was made a little more comfortable with some new loungers, we fell off the broken ones a couple of times, although no harm done, it’s just a small thing!
Thank you to Basile and family for making us very welcome, and I am sure lots more gusts will delight in the magic of Sicily from this lovely base.
The property is spacious and comfortable. The outdoor area is amazing, with so much comfortable seating and a really great barbecue area. Then down a slope to the beautiful pool. A really private area, the pool is so clean, and hardly any chlorine, so no irritating eyes!
Kaethe is a very welcoming host, we really enjoyed staying there and meeting her.
The surrounding coastline is varied and interesting. Plenty of big waves and sandy beaches. Also great areas for snorkelling in the crystal clear waters.
The nearest town, Modica is a lovely day out, and also Scicili is a really interesting town nestled in a deep valley.
A wonderful place, sunny climate, but with a nice breeze. Very friendly people. Wholly recommend it.
