tranquility, the peculiarity of the apartment. A glimpse of the Baroque in a homely and peaceful environment.
Ben accetti i non fumatori.
This apartment was in the old part of town of Modica, and only a two-minute walk from the main street. The location was excellent, and couldn't be better. There was also an excellent local Sicilian restaurant about a 1-minute walk from the apartment - ask Ornella about it. The food was fantastic, and very reasonably priced.
Ornella was a great host. She met us on the main street, and then jumped in the car with us and directed us to where to park (free). She then helped us take our luggage to the apartment, and settled us in, providing us with extra blankets (we were there for new year's eve).
The apartment itself is a spacious one-bedroom, with a couch that pulls out into a comfortable double-bed. If you go in the winter, the apartment has heating (and air conditioning) in both the living room and the bedroom. It has a lovely balcony, which can be accessed from both the living room and the bedroom. Ornella lives right upstairs, and is very helpful if there are any questions or if you need help.
I recommend this apartment to anyone - the apartment was great, and the host was great too. A truly authentic and great stay in Modica.
My father and I stayed at Ornella's apartment for two nights and had a wonderful stay. We had a hire car and dad was a bit nervous about parking. Ornella and her husband Evgeni met us at a main piazza in town and Evgeni got in the car and directed us to free and easy parking near the apartment. Most appreciated! Evgeni also insisted on taking carrying our luggage and even enlisted his son to help. Ornella also recommended a great local restaurant.
Communication leading up to and during the stay was easy and we felt very welcome.
The apartment was lovely and in a perfect location for exploring Modica.
Ornella was so accommodating and hospitable. She met us downtown in a central location, got in our car and directed us to free parking neat her apartment. She then helped our luggage and got us settled into her beautiful apartment. From the windows, we could see the town and it was only a five minute walk to the central district. The apartment was very clean, well maintained and well appointed. We were so comfortable there and on our departure, she sent us off with fresh oranges and clementines. She also recommended a favorite local restaurant which we found so delightful (fabulous Sicilian food) that we went there twice. We highly recommend Ornella's apartment to other airbnbers.
Ornella gave us a very warm welcome and found us a good free parking place. Her apartment was delightful and very well equipped. We highly recommend her and the apartment.
La Casa degli artisti is a beautiful apartment in a lovely quiet area yet is only a couple of minutes from the centre- the perfect location! The apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need on a holiday. The hosts Ornella and Evgeni are so friendly and helpful. They picked us up from the station and gave us great advice on where to go and what to do.
We had a wonderful holiday there and really hope to go back. A wonderful apartment, lovely hosts and a stunning Baroque town- what more could you ask for!
Ornella and Eugenio were incredibly welcoming hosts, meeting us in town to guide us to where we could park easily, helping us with carrying luggage and giving us lots of suggestions about where to visit and eat. The apartment is very quiet and comfortable and has everything needed, but is just three minutes walk to the main street and its cafés, shops and restaurants. We passed a wonderful week here in Modica and would definitely come again.
Ornella and her husband, Evgeni, are very hospitable and generous hosts. Evgeni met us at the train, carried the heaviest bag up the steps to the their charming, spotless, well-outfitted apartment. They took good care of us, answering all our questions, guiding us to the best parts of their wonderful city of Modica and then delivering us to the bus station when it came time to leave. We would highly recommend their comfortable apartment which we hope to return to again.
