Very nice place, friendly owner

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nicely presented and we liked the location near Modica. Modica itself is a very nice town to visit and the countryside is lovely. Not to far to the local sites Ragusa 30 mins, Siracusa circa 1 hour. The house is out in the country and the grounds are gated and walled. There are two decent looking restaurants within walking distance, didn't go in as had babies with us and the restaurants open quite late (for Brits).

Communication with Giorgio was very efficient, but all in Italian. In the days of google translate generally no problem, but a guide to the house and info about the local area in English would be a good addition. The gas, electric and local taxes were paid at the end of the stay and a schedule of unit costs in the house would have helped us prepare for departure.

Stayed off season. The house has everything we needed. Unfortunately weather wasn't great and perhaps the layout isn't ideal if the weather isn't nice as the communal sitting area has just one sofa, there were lots of other seats, but not of the comfy variety. There is a pool, but it is closed at this time of year so can't comment on that.

So excellent house, and helpful owner would be 5 stars, but a few minor niggles

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this wonderful Sicilian country house. Everything has been thought of and provided and all is beautifully presented. The private pool is a real bonus in the summer heat and a picture to behold, surrounded by fragrant jasmine and rose bushes. The location of the property is peaceful and perfect for outings to all the surrounding Baroque towns; so numerous that you will struggle to visit them all. The owner, Giorgio, demonstrates warm Sicilian hospitality, being a font of local knowledge - all of which is imparted with a smile. You really can't do better than this. Five star holiday accommodation!

Meraviglia della Sicilia

  • 5 of 5

Sono stato in questa casa con la mia famiglia per ben due volte! Che dire! La casa è veramente completa di tutto, perfettamente curata, arredata nel tipico stile siciliano. È una vera meraviglia. Giorgio è veramente stato spettacolare, disponibile, eccezionale! I suoi consigli:utilissimi, i luoghi indicati: da sogno! Io e la mia famiglia non potevamo chiedere di meglio. Tutto è perfetto: giardino, giochi per i bimbi, piscina a misura di adulti e bimbi, casa, comfort... Veramente tutto ciò che si può desiderare. Torneremo in questo fantastico luogo per molti anni ancora e il proprietario Giorgio non si libererà facilmente di noi.

Super Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week with two friends at casale della contea in June this year. What a wonderful time we had! The accommodation was well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful gardens and pool.

I do not normally want to return to the same place twice but this was different,I can't wait to go again next year! Georgio and his family were delightful and helpful if we needed anything. I can highly recommend this lovely old house. We visited many places of interest in the area and sampled some lovely food and the odd glass of wine also! Great holiday.

Une magnifique maison et un hôte formidable !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans cette très grande et belle maison très bien restaurée et très confortable, dans un état de propreté impeccable. Elle correspond tout à fait à la description de l'annonce. Nous avions tout l'equipement pour profiter de cette semaine. Nous avons en plus pu profiter de la piscine toute neuve, l'avantage étant qu'elle est sécurisée pour les enfants, ce qui est très rassurant. Les enfants ont d'ailleurs beaucoup profité du jardin et de la balançoire pendant que les parents utilisaient le barbecue et dînaient dans cet agréable jardin. Par ailleurs, la maison est très bien placé pour pouvoir explorer la sicile baroque qui est un très joli coin. Tous les commerces se trouvent seulement à quelques kilomètres.

Enfin, notre séjour n'aurait pas été le même sans la gentillesse et la disponibilité de Giorgio que nous avons tous apprécié ! Celui ci est toujours attentif à notre bien être. La question de la langue (nous ne parlons pas italien) n'a jamais été un problème et nous sommes toujours parvenus à nous comprendre.

C'est donc sans aucune réserve que je conseille cette maison à qui souhaite explorer la région et se poser dans une maison agréable ! J'y reviendrai pour ma part avec grand plaisir !
