About the property

Summer House Mascaron. Feeling home in one of the best part of Sicily.

In the heart of the village of Modica, on the World Heritage List of UNESCO, rises the Summer House Mascaron, a recently refurbished house, given back to his ancient beauty.

At the ground floor of a 19th century building, richly decorated with balconies supported by elements with the image of masks, stands the Summer House Mascaron, much more than a simple B&B or a hotel room. The house has a wide living room, two bedrooms plus a sofa bed, set out on two different levels, a modern liveable kitchen, a bathroom and storage. All rooms are equipped with TV and WI-FI connection, air conditioning, bath and bed linen, the necessary for cooking.

The ambiences are finely furnished, every detail is tide, the space is wisely divided to welcome four guests in the double or matrimonial configuration. Best comfort with reasonable price and the sensation to feel home even in a different city.

The stay doesn’t include breakfast service but you can enjoy a variety of biscuits, sweets, coffee, tea and tisane.

The house is completely autonomous, the host doesn’t live in the same building but he will available for any urgencies.

The neighbourhood, one of the most ancient of the village, is surrounded by a romantic and old style atmosphere that the guests can breathe walking through the narrow streets, far from the noises of the city traffic and his stressed rhythm.

The house rises at 150 Mt and few minutes of walking distance from the historical city centre and his main Baroque monuments: the church of St. Pieter, the church of St. George and other buildings. The village can be easily reached from two different airports: International Airport of Catania (1h 15’ by car) and the new airport of Comiso (40’).

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great location in a great town that can explore for several days, although did need our walking legs on, well worth exploring though, found some fantastic restaurants that way.

Emanuela, our contact for the apartment was fantastic giving every assistance.

Ok there are a few steps p and down to the car parking area, 69 in all, but don't let that put you off a very well presented apartment.

Modica is well located to see everything there is to see, beautiful towns and nice beaches to the south, Mt Etna is an easy drive away.

Thank you Emanuala, we loved our stay

Location is not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was very well maintained and furnished just like it was pictured. The master bedroom had a decent mattress which is a rarity in Europe and Wonderful linens. The bathroom was good sized a larger shower. Our complaint was that it was advertised as a short walk to the city center. What they didn't say was that it is on the hillside and you had to climb 65 steps plus walk down to the Main Street or up if you parked your car. Lugging the luggage down to the apartment was very hard and harder to bring back up. You can not get a car close to the apartment. If you plan on cooking meals there, it is very limited of pots and pans and serving dishes. They did not have one sharp knife in the apartment. You couldn't even peel an apple.

All in all it was a nice apartment, nice manager but difficult maneuvering the many, many steps and parking your car.

Owner's Response: About the location of the apartment, there are only five minutes on foot to the main street and who knows Modica and other old towns (Taormina, Ortigia, etc.), knows that are characterised by steps and some narrow streets. Thanks to this feature, Modica is comparated to a nativity scene, so if you want to enjoy the city in its wonderful landscape, you are in the right place (the old town is populated by Modicans who usually live their quarters and steps too) but if you prefer an apartment with elevator or the possibility of leaving your car just in front of the door, maybe you should choose the new quarter of Modica and go to the old center by car. The guest house is a young run-business and we are growing with your suggests, so we are always pleased to satisfy your desires, we are sorry because if you would have told us about your requests (different knifes for example), we would surely have satisfied you, like we did for other requests during your staying.

Appartamento stupendo, città da vedere

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati benissimo. Casa molto accogliente, arredata con gusto e fornita di ogni confort. ( salone e 2 camere da letto distinte fornite di TV e climatizzatore) Appartamento raggiungibile tramite scale ma con un comodissimo parcheggio gratuito a 2 minuti a piedi, vicinissima alla via principale di Modica, comoda per raggiungere molti monumenti storici. Il proprietario molto disponibile e appassionato della cultura locale e Siciliana ci ha consigliato molte cose. All'arrivo abbiamo anche trovato un vassoio di paste dolci, bellissimo gesto di accoglienza (vacanza in 4, 2 coppie)

abbiamo soggiornato nella casa vacanze Mascaron per il chocomodica 2014. Casa molto accogliente nella parte antica della citta' a due passi dal duomo di San Pietro e a soli tre minuti dal duomo di San Giorgio. i proprietari gentilissimi sono venuti a prenderci fuori paese e ci hanno accompagnato fino alla casa dove ci attendeva un vassoio di dolci tipici da loro offerto, consiglio di provare
