Great base for the region and a lovely home
The photos don't do this lovely home justice - it is spacious and lovingly presented by the owners who met us to show us around and provide the keys. It was great to come back to the lovely pool after a hot day of exploring Noto, Ragusa and Modica. The living area is large and open and there are several dining areas to chose from - we mostly ate outside on the verandah which wraps around two walls of the house. We lived outdoors mainly under the shade of the covered verandah. Make sure you bring bug spray, though!
The two main bedrooms upstairs are good size and the family bathroom upstairs is also roomy and well stocked with towels. The 3rd bedroom downstairs is a double bed and a smaller room but was fine for us for our 8 night stay. The garden is beautifully done, with lots of grass areas for children to play and the 250+ year old olive trees in the backyard add an amazing sense of history.
The setting is a quiet rural area, about 3km from the town of Rosolini which has supermarkets, bakeries etc and does observe siesta (1pm - 4pm) so you will need to work around that if you want to explore the town. While the area around Modica is prettier, we found Villa Dora a great base from which to explore this corner of Sicily and the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and plate of antipasto at the end of the day.
