A lovely house and nice hosts

  • 5 of 5

Daniela was extremely helpful and considerate throughout our stay, even meeting us in Modica and guiding us to the house which is in a very quiet spot. The house is clean, well equipped and spacious. It is very comfortable. The only slight negative is that sitting outside is not as shown on the website photos. I think that some photos are of the owner's private garden. The location is excellent for visits to many interesting places.

We really loved our stay at "Il rifugio di Pan". The house is very confortable, well furnished and decorated. Daniela and Pablo are the perfect owners, they were so friendly and did anything they can to help us. In the guesthouse, you will find products for shower, kitchen and even many fruits in the fridge. They take care of their guests, that's for sure ! Their house is right next door but you have full privacy. The dog Ciocco (or Choco?) loves guests ! He's big but really sweet (if you are afraid of dog, don't worry...he can be locked in Daniela's house).

The house is located in a valley under a high bridge and we really enjoyed this quite and relax location (no phone, no wifi, perfect to disconnect) even if we had to drive 10 minutes on a difficult road. Once you reach the main road, Modica is at 5 minutes drive and the beaches at 25 minutes.

If you are looking for a very typical place lost in the nature with nice people, visit them !

Thank you, Grazie Mille, Muchas Gracias Daniela & Pablo !

Owner's Response: Welcoming Jerome and Antonella with their beautiful daughter Joanne was a real pleasure for us. We are very glad that they enjoyed our home and the restoration work we did. Spend some time with them and get to know them better was very nice. Jerome and Antonella are ideal guests: cheerful, kind and extremely respectful of home and nature. If one day they want to return to Sicily, we will be happy to see them again. Hasta luego linda pareja! Un grande abrazo a la distancia!

a beautiful restored farmhouse carefully designed in a peaceful and quiet rural place

  • 5 of 5

The photo's on the HomeAway site don't give an accurat view of this place. In the daytime you can visit the lively town of Modica and other towns like Ragusa and Noto of drive to the seaside. In the evening you just stay at home because it is zo quiet and dark and we had a full moon and thousand stars. The interior with a sitting room; a bedroom downstairs and two beds in the open attic, the kitchen and the bathroom are furnished with attention and love for the house. The hosts Daniela and Pedro are very kind and helpful and Daniela speaks beside Italian and Spanish also very good English. They have 3 nice dogs that welcome you and in the evening you enjoy the silence of nature as you look out to a very high viaduct over the valley of the river Irminio. It takes some effort to reach the place but it's definitely worth it and a great place to stay

Sehr nette Gastgeber und sehr liebevoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Daniela und Pablo sind sehr herzliche Gastgeber und gute Menschen, die sich um das Wohl ihrer Gäste kümmern.

(Sie suchten am ersten Tag für uns wilden Spargel!)

Das Refugio di Pan ist liebevoll eingerichtet und mit Sorgsamkeit gemacht. Wir fühlten uns in dieser Zeit sehr wohl und freuten uns jeden Morgen über die Begrüßung von Chocolato, Loli und Chocolato Junior. Wir sind ein wenig entlang des Flüssleins im Tal gelaufen und waren verzaubert. Und auch die Autotalbrücke am Horizont hat ihren Charme für sich. Wir empfehlen das Refugio sehr gerne weiter. Wäre es ein bisschen wärmer im April gewesen, wären wir noch glücklicher gewesen. Die Gegend mit Modica und Regusa lieben wir und haben uns sehr rund an die wunderbaren Dolcis gegessen. We loved it!!!! Danke Daniela und Pablo!

tranquillità e natura a Modica

  • 5 of 5

Dopo aver percorso un tratto di strada sterrata che conduce al fiume Irminio, si apre il paradiso.Si arriva a una casa con pietra a vista ristrutturata da poco da Daniela e Pablo.I due proprietari sono il lieto finale di una giornata trascorsa a visitare le bellezze circostanti.Con loro una grigliata,un bicchiere di vino o semplicemente due parole in loro compagnia ti ripagano di tutto.La casa è veramente molto bella e arredata con molto gusto, quando varchi la porta non vorresti più abbandonarla, semplicemente una favola adagiata sul letto del fiume a pochi minuti dal bellissimo centro di Modica.Sicuramente tornerò a trovare i proprietari e questo bellissimo posto ricco di piante,fiori e una natura che va vissuta pienamente per assaporare la vera Sicilia.

Owner's Response: Ospitare Andrea, Stefania e la loro figlia Sofia è stato per noi un piacere ed un privilegio. Sono un trio perfetto, persone solari, altruiste e coinvolgenti, i vicini che tutti vorremmo avere. Si sono perfettamente integrati nella nostra struttura, vivendo e curando il Rifugio come fosse la loro casa. Siamo stati molto felici di condividere del tempo insieme perchè in loro non abbiamo trovato solo degli affittuari gentili e rispettosi ma degli Amici. Sapere che sono partiti con la voglia di ritornare è il regalo più grande che potevano farci.
