About the property

House with 6 beds in the historical center of Modica

I propose a Baroque house in a narrow street in the historic center of Modica, the ideal place to escape from the chaotic rhythms metropolitan.

The house consists of two units

independent. The ground floor is a dammuso

(Typical stone of Modica) consisting of double bed, bathroom and kitchen.

In the other drive is accessed via a staircase in pitch and ancient pottery. It consists of living area with kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. The entire house is rented to groups of up to 6 people, for groups of 4 or 2 persons is rented the top (the one with a terrace). If you have special needs I am happy to meet my guests. From the balconies and the terrace offers a splendid view of the Baroque city, the terrace is equipped with sofa and breakfast table to enjoy the outdoors and relax. Elegantly finished is equipped with all the comforts (air conditioning, towels, bed linen, iron, hair dryer in each bathroom, laundry cooking utensils).

Within walking distance there are restaurants, shops, bars, pharmacy. And 'well-connected by bus to reach in a few minutes of Modica, a few meters from Ast to the airport of Catania and Comiso

And 'possible to walk through the narrow streets, taste the typical chocolate, the best of Sicily conducted following ancient Mayan recipes, the delicious sorbets and cannoli or discover the wonders of the local cuisine.

Modica, the birthplace of the poet S. Quasimodo is a place where art and culture are mixed.

Here you can visit the more than 100 churches, the castle overlooking, follow routes in the various districts, visit its rock-hewn churches.

A few steps from the house you can park in the free zones.

All our guests will be greeted with a welcome basket to try the delicious cakes and chocolate of Modica

Soggiorno incantevole

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è proprio come nelle foto e sembra di vivere in una cartolina. Rossella è stata gentilissima, ci ha accolto con dei deliziosi biscotti e con la cioccolata di Modica e ci ha dato un sacco di informazioni.

Si tratta di un posto speciale. Abbiamo trovato esattamente ciò che ci aspettavamo, un posto elegante, autentico, dove sentirsi a casa propria. L'appartamento è curato con gusto ed attenzione nei dettagli ed è fornito di tutto ciò di cui si può avere bisogno. La posizione è strategica ad un passo dal centro, luminoso con una bella vista sul paese di Modica . La casa, inoltre, è molto pulita, e null'altro possiamo dire se non confermare che è una destinazione di una bellezza e di un fascino unici.

Ritorneremo di sicuro.

Comfortable, well appointed city apartment

  • 5 of 5

Well set up, very clean, sunny apartment with a great terrace for relaxing and eating. The location is excellent right in the centre of the old Baroque town. There is free and paid parking a short distance away. We really appreciate being welcomed with a bottle of wine and fresh fruit.

Modica is a really beautiful town and well placed to explore the other Baroque towns as well as Syracuse and the coast.

Fantastico soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Un appartamento affascinante, arredato con molto gusto e fornita di tutte le comodità. Ci hanno accolto i genitori di Rossella, due persone carinissime e disponibili, dandoci parecchie dritte per vivere al meglio il nostro soggiorno a Modica e dintorni .La casa è situata nel pieno centro storico ed ha un bellissimo balcone e una terrazza dalla quale si può godere un piacevole panorama. Da consigliare!

The house is located in Modica that with the Val di Noto, is a World Heritage Site for its historical center, full of Baroque architecture. Called the city of 100 churches among them the Cathedral of St. George monument symbol of Sicilian Baroque. This is one of the most beautiful churches of Modica, its imposing façade and the impressive staircase consists of 164 steps make it a popular destination for romantic visitors and art lovers. Modica, was movie set of "The Commissioner Montalbano". And 'the city of Salvatore Quasimodo, Nobel Prize for Literature (1959); Thomas Campailla, scientist and philosopher; Modica Alta is one of the oldest districts and extended from the northern walls of the castle to the current Church of San Giovanni. A beautiful and evocative vision is given by the small and ancient houses perched on the rock, with their features lights, giving the landscape the look of a crib.
