Vico Muccio - historical house, finely restructured with a splendid view on the historical Baroque city of Modica

Bedrooms 1
Space 753 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 6 nights


About the property

An incredible view on the historical center of Modica, the Baroque town in the south eastern part of Sicily declared World Heritage by Unesco for its Churches and beauties.

Vico Muccio is in a central position, a few minutes from the main cultural attractions, bars, shops and local restaurants. The house is nicely located in a silent alley of the old town with plenty of light.

The house has recently been restructured with local raw materials and by maintaining the local building traditions. This has made it comfortable and practical, with a well equipped kitchen that opens up on a delightful terrace, a bedroom and a spacious and warm living room where the sofa and armchair can become beds.

Incredible Views in a Historical Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Views from the terraces and even from our bedroom window are stunning in this cosy, but spacious apartment. From the bedroom, even as we lie in bed, we could see the huge mountaintop clock tower that overlooks Modica. The second terrance is perfect for having a meal with a view.The apartment itself is simply but functionally furnished, and is well located for exploring the town. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to stay in an UNESCO World Heritage site and the apartment is a full of panoramic views from nearly every window. The parking situation and also taking your luggage up the stairs is a bit of a challenge but it is worth the effort for the views and it is a great value for the area.

Charming and well-presented

  • 4 of 5

A great apartment in with lovely views over the rooftops of Modica and two great terraces to sit out on. Clean and well-presented with everything you might need.The owner Federica and the lady who welcomed us , Enza, were both extremely helpful. Modica has plenty of good places to eat and shops and amenities are all close to hand. Parking gets tricky in the busy part of the day but we found that if we parked further out of the centre on Via Maria Tedeschi and walked back we could get a space for the day. The town is perfectly positioned for visits to the other baroque towns nearby like Ragusa and Noto. Sampieri beach is a short drive away but there are many other beaches nearby too. We caught the train one day to Syracuse which proved to be a good way of visiting the city. The train takes ages though so only if you have time, get up very early and are in absolutely in no rush! The apartment is up several flights of stone steps (as are most in these towns ) but that would make it very difficult to access for anyone with walking difficulties and you have to be able to carry shopping and luggage yourselves so check that out with Federica if you have any doubts. Don't miss eating loads of ice cream, granite and the fabulous pastries - worry about your diet another day!

  • 5 of 5

"Modica is an authentic town with a lot to see without being overrun by tourists and 4 Vico Muccio is an ideal location from which to experience it. It is close to the centre of town, both historical sites, cafes an restaurants and services and there is parking nearby. Fantastic views of the town are gained from the 2 balconies. It is in a very quiet location.

The property is stylish with modern ammenities, washing machine and good cooking facilities an friendly neighbours.

The personal contact is available if there is a problem and she provides a very warm welcome. We had a very enjoyable experience in the house experiencing daily life in Modica.

Highly recommended"

Highly recommend visit to beautiful Modica and this apartment."

You do need to be able climb some steps but at the end of them is a wonderful haven and view. I would happily return. Thank you."

Modica is approximately 1,5 hours from Catania airport and 45 minutes from Comiso airport.

Bus: http://www.aziendasicilianatrasporti.it/

Flights: http://www.aeroporto.catania.it/


Parking is available 3/5 minutes from the house.

Modica is the ideal location to visit the history, the art and beauties of eastern Sicily, as well as to savour the traditional dishes and discover naturalistic routes. Ragusa Ibla, Scicli, Noto and Siracusa are all very close to Modica. Piazza Armerina and Agrigento are ideal locations for daily escursions.

Local cousine has its origins in the countryside peasant tradition (scacce – focaccia like, pastizzi -rolls of bread pastry stuffed with peas or cottage cheese, arancini – rice balls coated with breadcrumbs, chocolate, granite – semi-frozen dessert), and is served alongside with delicious fish based dishes.

Some of the most beautiful and wild beaches of the Mediterranean are only 20km away from Modica where you can practice sea sports.

Donnafugata Golf: 20 KM.
