Small but beautifully formed

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Modica. The apartment was small but well laid out with almost everything we needed. There was enough room for the two of us to relax and the kitchen was equipped so that we could cook and eat in as we wanted. The bed was comfortable and the shower provided plenty of hot water at a good pressure.

Situated a short walk from the main street the area is well served by shops and cafe's and we loved walking the steps and narrow streets that lie behind the main roads.

The local people were so welcoming despite our lack of Italian. We made an effort to make ourselves understood and people responded to our efforts being kind and helpful.

Modica is very much a typical Sicilian town that we thoroughly enjoyed visiting. The architecture is spectacular and ordinary houses look amazing perched upon each other as they climb the valley sides. We used public transport to visit Syracuse and Ragusa but would have benefited from planning our journeys better due to the timings. Our error not a criticism of the transport available.

All in all we had a relaxing and very enjoyable week experiencing Sicilian life, culture, food and of course wine! Thanks to Vincenzo who made us so welcome and arranged our transfers. Molto bene, grazie mille!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Although small, this house had everything we needed, comfortable bed, good bathroom with powerful (but small) shower, kitchen with hob (we just used it for breakfast) and a small but usable balcony overlooking the small back street below. The house is very convenient to the centre of Modica and a local supermarket. On street parking is about 400m away. At times getting a convenient parking spot can be tricky. We had a lovely holiday, exploring Modica, Scicli, Ragusa, Syracuse and several lovely beaches (including Montalbano's house!)

Sei giorni che ricorderemo

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento sembra piccolo dalle descrizioni, ed in effetti si ha la medesima sensazione appena arrivati.

In realtà ha tutto ciò che serve per trascorrere una vacanza in serenità per una famiglia di 4 persone.

Cucinotto abitabile con tavolo dove mangiare comodamente e con finestra, piccolo bagno ma molto funzionale e con finestra, camera matrimoniale con divanetto e terrazzo con filo per stendere e cameretta con finestra, letto a castello a norma e ben organizzata.

Inoltre nella casa abbiamo trovato tanti dettagli ed accessori, come se fossimo a casa nostra, tutto molto accogliente ed organizzato.

Giovanni, il proprietario, ci ha messo a nostro agio e ci ha dato varie indicazioni su Modica e sul territorio.

Sei giorni che resteranno nei nostri ricordi.

Ottima base per un viaggio nel barocco siciliano

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di Giovanni a fine ottobre. Il piccolo appartamento si trova in posizione comoda per girare a piedi nel centro di Modica e costituisce un ottimo punto di partenza per la visita della regione sud orientale della Sicilia. Nelle vicinanze c'è possibilità di parcheggio e ci sono tutti i servizi. Arredato con gusto, pulito e dotato di tutto il necessario. Accoglienza cortese e massima disponibilità.

Abbiamo passato un'ottima vacanza in una zona molto interessante per cultura, arte tradizione e cucina.

Grazie ancora a Giovanni per l'ospitalità!

Lovely little house in the old part of Modica - with no steps or very fews steps to the main street.

  • 5 of 5

The house is small and has everything that you need. In the kitchen there is a cooker, sink, utensils, table and chairs - there is also a TV you can watch from the kitchen table. (Italian channels only I think). There's just a fews steps up to the kitchen and other rooms from the entrance door, but then everything is on one level which is nice. A lovely double bedroom with sofa and little table and chairs which you can put on the balcony - this is nice in the evening you can look over the roofs to the church on the opposite side of the valley which is all lit up. The 2nd bedroom had a bunk bed, wardrobe and a little stool with bedside light. The bathroom is modern with a good powerful shower. The house is very clean and well looked after. There was also a welcome bottle of wine and some local little cakes when we arrived - a very nice touch. The owner Giovanni is very helpful and friendly and drove us to the bus terminal when we were leaving since it is at the other side of Modica - at the top end. This is in walking distance - probably about 20 minutes, but by car it is naturally easier with a suitcase. The appartment is very convenient for the main main street with restaurants, cafes, supermarket around the corner and shops - with no or very few steps, depending which route you take - which are very prevalent in Modica. I would say it is in an ideal location. It is only 5 minutes walk from the train station - we arrived by train from Siracusa with suitcases - it is no problem to walk to the appartment. Our experience with the train was very good. We used it 3 times and every time it departed and arrived exactly on time! I would thoroughly recommend this appartment for visiting Modica.

Casa molto bella in una cittadina gioiello

  • 5 of 5

Grazie Giovanni!!

Siamo stati davvero bene nella vostra graziosissima casa. Situata in una strada poco trafficata (soprattutto la notte) e quindi tranquilla che, in neanche 5 minuti di cammino, sbuca come per magia di fronte al duomo di S.Pietro, in pieno centro. Pulizia e dotazione impeccabili, così come la cortesia e la disponibilità di Giovanni e Vincenzo. Poichè amiamo la Sicilia e in particolare Modica, ci piacerebbe tornare di nuovo qui alla prossima occasione.
