We would highly recommend the area and these villas as a place for a relaxing holiday in a very authentic Sicilian environment. We did have disturbed nights by dogs howling from neighbouring properties, but that was not a fault of the villa owners, just one of those unfortunate things, but aside from that it’s a lovely peaceful location.
Our children loved the friendly cats at the properties, and seeing many wonderful-coloured lizards too. The flowers in June were stunning around the beautiful stone buildings.
The pool is a great size and very clean and we made a lot of use of it. It would be good to have some new, functioning sun loungers for the adults to properly relax by the pool as well.
The location is fantastic for Modica town, & for the wonderful beaches of Marina Di Modica, as well as those a bit further over on the east coast and the Ionian Sea.
We were made to feel very welcome and were treated to wonderful local produce home cooked by Basile and his family. We were also very grateful to Basile for taking us to local food producers, which was a wonderful experience for us. What a lovely family and we will never forget the whole experience. Our parting gift of olive oil was a real treat.
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was the small things which would really make it perfect, like the fact the showers run boiling hot or freezing cold making them difficult to use, it would be good if the outside furniture was more comfortable for sitting at to eat meals, as we couldn’t reach the table to eat from the chairs as they were extremely low. It was hot though, so we just ate indoors and the air conditioning helped a lot. And if the pool area was made a little more comfortable with some new loungers, we fell off the broken ones a couple of times, although no harm done, it’s just a small thing!
Thank you to Basile and family for making us very welcome, and I am sure lots more gusts will delight in the magic of Sicily from this lovely base.
We were here for 2 weeks, it was a lovely base for looking around the southeastern corner of Sicily. We loved the view and sound of the sea from the house and the swimming was fabulous
Giorgio was an excellent host, he provided a lot of fresh, local foods for us, we didn’t need to shop for a couple of days, and he was on hand if there were any problems - there weren’t any.
The house was immaculate, so comfortable and it had everything we needed, it really was better than the photos so you will not be disappointed
We would definitely go back, we really had the best holiday in this home
Thank you Giorgio
