The typical Mediterranean cuisine

The province of Ragusa coast is dotted with many small and precious pearls, each of which is unique to the landscape and beauty; In fact over Marina di Modica are the West: Sampieri, that location with its 'Plant Burned', the Furnace Pen, it has become the identifying symbol of the series Montalbano. She then come to Cava d'Aliga, Donnalucata, Marina di Ragusa, Kamarina, with its archaeological park and an important museum, Punta Secca with the house of Montalbano, Punta Braccetto and Scoglitti.

East of Marina di Modica find Pozzallo, from which you can quickly reach Malta for day trips, and the coast at Santa Maria del Focallo.

Inland Ibleo

As from the Mediterranean hinterland ibleo short step, it would be a shame not to take the opportunity to discover places full of charm and culture that have made the earth iblea one of the flagships of UNESCO. We remember in particular

Modica, the capital of the County which was made great by its Conti: 'A form of split pomegranate', with its baroque architecture, its narrow streets and its churches, on which stand the Duomo di San Giorgio and the Cathedral Church of St. Peter , it has become the destination of historical paths and wine and food. In this regard we recall the Modica chocolate, served plain or with its various flavorings, 'the' mpanatigghi 'beans modicane,' u Cosacavaddu '(the famous caciocavallo DOP), in addition to the typical preparations that have their roots in peasant culture.

Other sites of historical and cultural interest are: the necropolis of Cava d 'Ispica and the baroque towns of Ragusa and Scicli.

Equally important and evocative are the destinations outside the province: the baroque of Noto, the Vendicari, Portopalo, Marzamemi and Syracuse. All within easy reach for a day trip.

The best calm vacation you could ever dream

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 persons spent in Panarea house for 5 weeks. We have enjoyed every single day. The house is perfectly located just in front of the sea. Every day cooking, having breakfast or dinner, lying in the bedroom, staying in a living room or in the garden you enjoy beautiful views on the Mediterranean during day or night. And not just the sea - we enjoyed views of ships, ferries crossing Mediterranean waters and disappearing over the horizon. The beach just in front of the house is a real surprise!!! Sandy sea bottom just few stones when entering (better with slippers). Official beach is 300 meters away going by calm streets, clean sand, shallow sea - perfect with small children. If windy you always could choose beach with no wind and waves either official beach or beach in front of the house.

The house is very clean and cozy. All is made with love and with a big open heart. The house was equipped much more than standard. We never ever met such hospitable owners. The owners met us with all their family. They always worried if all is fine with us, if we have any problems and always tried to solve them.

We were surprised about beauty of the towns located nearby. Modica, Scicli, Noto, Ragusa are charming town with its unrepeatable beauty. It is necessary to have a car.

This vacation will stay for a long time in our memories. With no doubts we would like to return there again.

Eine Idylle am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus Panarea in Marina di Modica ist ein schönes und sehr gepflegtes Haus. Die Gastgeber Adriana und Giorgio sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Schon bei der Ankunft wurden wir herzlich und familiär empfangen.

Wir ( 2 Erwachsene und drei Kinder) sind müde und spät in der Nacht nach einer langen Reise angekommen. Wir hatten etwas Sorge, um die Schlüsselübergabe, weil wir wussten, dass es spät werden würde. Nachdem wir unsere Gastgeber Adriana und Giorgio informiert hatten, haben sie uns beruhigt und haben uns trotz später Stunde persönlich vor Ort empfangen. Sie hatten sogar Getränke im Kühlschrank für uns kaltgestellt, und im Schrank standen ein Päckchen Pasta, etwas Tomatensosse und ein paar leckere Dolci von der örtlichen Konditorei zum Nachtisch bereit. Es war wie zu Hause ankommen bei Mama.

Und überhaupt, das Haus ist super bestückt. Zusätzlich zum normalem Equipment ( Töpfe, Geschirr etc.) warteten flauschige Handtücher, Geschirrtücher, Spülmitel und sogar Duschgel auf uns. Alles Dinge, die man nach der Ankunft erst mühsam im Supermarkt kaufen und organisieren muss. Ausserdem steht eine moderne Waschmaschine zur Verfügung. Bei drei Kindern ein Segen. Leider fehlt noch eine Spülmaschine... Aber man kann nicht alles haben...

Trotzdem, das Haus Panarea ist Urlaub von der ersten Minute an.

Das Schönste aber ist der Blick aufs Meer. Das Meer ist der ständige Begleiter. Nachts wiegt einen das sanfte Rauschen der Wellen in den Schlaf, tagsüber begeistert der überwältigende Blick auf das tiefblaue Wasser und lädt zum Eintauchen ins kühle Nass ein. Herrlich.

Der Sandstrand von Marina di Modica ist ca. 300 m entfernt und zu Fuß gut zu erreichen. Die Spiaggia ist gut ausgestattet. Es sind Duschen und Toiletten vorhanden und auch für Verpflegung ( unbedingt die leckere Zitronengranita probieren, eine sizilianische Spezialität!!!) ist gesorgt. Der Strand ist überwiegend frei, so dass man kostenlos baden und sonnenbaden kann. Übrigens Sonnenschirm und Klappstühle für den Strand gibt es im Haus Panarea. Ein toller Service von Adriana und Giorgio.

Unser Fazit: Das Haus ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Wenn man etwas mehr Action haben möchte, kann man Abends zu Fuß in die Disko oder man besucht das abendliche Treiben in der Ortsmitte von Marina.

Ein Besuch des Namensgebenden Barockstädtchen Modica ist sehr zu empfehlen. Sehenswert ist u.A. die Chiesa San Giorgio, mit dem gleichnamigen Schutzpatron. In Modica gute Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Wonderful house at amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation of 2 weeks at House Panarea. The house has everything that you can possibly expect or need: it's super clean, is well equipped and offers great comfort. The amazing location so close to the Mediterranean Sea makes the holiday an unforgettable experience.Anyone looking for a relaxing time will be happy here. There are some extraordinary restaurants nearby, as well as a nice sandy beach and within an hour driving the most charming little towns to explore.

Add to all that the friendliness and perfect hospitality of the owners, Giorgio and Adriana, and you'll have the ingredients for a truly wonderful vacation.

Assolutamente splendida

  • 5 of 5

Raramente ho trovato una sistemazione per le vacanze praticamente perfetta.

Prima di tutto: la posizione. E' veramente a 6-7 metri dal mare, quindi è come disporre di una spiaggia privata, in pochi secondi si torna a casa. il mare è il grande protagonista: le finestre del salone e della cucina e i balconi danno sul mare, consentendo una vista stupenda sia la mattina che la notte.

Sotto la casa c'è uno spazio completamente coperto dove è possibile mangiare, riposarsi, leggere...etc.

Un discorso a parte merita la casa: l'arredamento è nuovissimo e molto curato, inoltre è fornita di tutto il necessario. E' presente il Wi-Fi, le lampade anti zanzare (in realtà molto poche), le sedie per il mare, insomma tutto il necessario.

i proprietari infine (oltre a farci trovare bibite fresche, un kit alimentare e un cabaret di pasticcini) sono stati sempre disponibili per qualsiasi esigenza.

Insomma, noi ci torneremo sicuramente, abbiamo trascorso due settimane magnifiche. Assolutamente consigliabile.
