Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Modica - Villa in Sicily, Southern Italy, Italy

Villa in Sicily, Southern Italy, Italy

Located within the area of  Cava d’Ispica in the land of Modica (province of Ragusa ), Castello Cavica is an exclusive and fascinating villa.Castello Cavica overlooks a cavernous long natural canyon from tectonic origin which surely becomes, for its both particular geomorphology and numberless archaeological testimonies, one of the most charming and important sites in the entire Sicily.The villa welcomes you with comfortable rooms which were restored and renovated using natural local materials (as stone and wood), perfectly according to the rules implemented by the bioclimatic architecture, but also in the strict respect of the local traditions and the rural culture.Here, you can abandon yourselves during a peaceful walk along a contemplative path of the place and you can discover again what does the slow-living really mean. Choosing this place will revive you, turning you away from the obsessive rhythms of the daily life.Castello Cavica is a charming and comfortable Villa, located in the famous area of Val di Noto, cradle of the late-baroque art and architecture, more exactly in the land of Modica, city part of the Unesco world heritage site. The location of Castello Cavica allows you easy access to the golden beaches of Pozzallo, Sampieri, S. Lorenzo, Cala Mosche, as well as the natural oisis of Vendicari and also the Southern extremity of Sicily with its sea town of Portopalo of Capo Passero (at a distance of about 15-35 Km).

From here it’s also easy to reach the charming baroque-cities of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto (at about 15-30 Km). Taking the highway you can also easily reach the cities of Siracusa and Catania. Given the location of the villa, it's advised to have your own means of transportation.Interesting species of flora and fauna typical for the Mediterranean rupestral environment are largely represented in this area : no small wonder for you if it happens to see a peregrine falcon flying up in the sky or to meet a porcupine walking undisturbed between asparagus and wild fennel plants!HistoryCastello Cavica was built in 1954 and was meant to provide decent life conditions to the countryside peasants which used to live inside the rocky caverns of the so called “Castello” even in the early post second world war period.The background of this scenery is the famous cave, a majestic and picturesque valley characterized by the typical Mediterranean vegetation. The cave is an archaeological area sprinkled with various testimonies that sustain the continuity and the evolution of the human being during the centuries: prehistoric necropolises, christian catacombs, rupestral oratories and various dwellings.Between the last ones, there is the aforementioned Castello, a residential complex, several storeys high, connected between them by interior steps cut in the walls, with cavities permitting the climbing.The villa includes six comfortable rooms 4 double rooms and 2 triple rooms, each of them with private entrance and bathroom, air conditioning, minibar and LCD 26 TV. There are five rooms are on the ground floor and a further 1 room on the lower floor.

The lounge area and dining room on the lower floor are connected to the fully equipped kitchen. The swimming-pool is the perfect refreshing break during your stay on a hot summer days.
