"An idyllic place to stay...

  • 5 of 5

"An idyllic place to stay, set in a beautiful old garden with plenty of shade available through the day, not to mention the lovely swimming pool which we really appreciated. The Casa della Nonna is well equipped and furnished with care (we particularly liked the old floor, which we were told had been brought from an old family house in Modica). We did find our mattress rather uncomfortable, but everything else was so wonderful that I feel reluctant to mention it. We were made to feel very much at home by the extremely helpful and kind owners (our daughter Anna was particularly sad to say goodbye to 5-year-old Camilla and has already said that she wants to go back next summer!). Mille grazie Anna e spero che ci incontriamo presto."

Excellent séjour!

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans une des maisons louées par Anna. L'accueil est parfait et le cadre est superbe. La grande piscine est fantastique et notre enfant de 4 ans a pu en profiter tous les jours. La seule mauvaise surprise était que nous avions des voisins de terrasse (derrière la maison), l'intimité n'était donc pas optimale. Merci à Anna pour son accueil, nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir mais choisirons une autre de ses maisons, sans voisins cette fois-ci.

Bellissima vacanza in un bellissimo posto

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati qui in vacanza la prima settimana di settembre.

Appena si entra nel parco della villa si esce dal tempo...il posto è bellissimo e curato.

Le proprietarie sono molto gentili e garbate.

Noi eravamo in quattro due adulti e due bambini ovviamente superfelici alla vista della piscina.

La sistemazione si trova a cinque minuti da Modica ed è comunque comoda per raggiungere le spiagge e gli altri centri del barocco siciliano.

Vacanza super che cercheremo di ripetere di nuovo.

Gorgeous and comfortabe place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 weeks and we were very happy to find that the place is actually more beautiful than the photos shown in this listing. Our apartment was very spacious and comfortable and the comunal areas are just gorgeous. Our hosts, the De Leva sisters are very welcoming, helpful and really made us feel at home. We just love it and we would definitely recommend anyone who travels to Modica to stay here as it has all needed and more for an amazing stay.
