An old "casale" of the thirties, alongside the road which from Modica leads to the Frigintini hills.
It ' s a peaceful place, where one can meditate, which used to be the shelter of the sicilian artist Liliana Guarino, which was recently converted Into a very pleasant country-house, with the arabic name of Rassabbia.
This casale looks over wide stretches of olive trees and carobs and melts perfectly with the variety of colours of the landscape, the colours of burned earth being a source of inspiration for the artists. Therefore, the approx. 10 acres of the place were willingly left wild.
Rassabbia will provide fresh shelter up to six guests (but it will be possible to increase this number by adding additional beds); in summer time it will be very pleasant to have breakfast all together in the bagghiu, the courtyard kept in the typical colours of Sicily.
The casale holds a strategic position for historical and nature excursions: the beaches of Pozzallo, Marina di Monica and Sampieri are at a 20 minutes' drive distance, while the baroque towns of Modica and Scicli are just a short step away .
Our guests have access to the swimming pool, having an uncomun shape, is perfectly blended in with the surroundings and the "muretti a secco"( typical wall in local stone) and the garden without sharing them with anyone else.
Guests can use the wood hoven and the BBQ.

Villa Rassabia is a large country house set in beautiful grounds, part wild, overlooking lovely countryside near the village of Frigintini. The house is quite unique. Huge rooms, a lovely courtyard, and plenty of space to sit out in the grounds. We cannot say enough about the warmth and generosity of our hosts, it was quite exceptional, and we would recommend anyone to stay with them. The house is very peaceful and perfect for anyone seeking relaxation. At the same time it is only 15 mins from the beautiful baroque town of Modica. The house also has a great pool, although this was not in use when we were there in late April/early May - it opens mid May. We would welcome the opportunity to return, and it would make a great location for a small party of friends, or family. This is clearly a loved family home full of original features and artwork. We hope to go back.
