The Nonna's House is a luminous property situated in Marina di Modica, a peaceful seaside location ideal for families and children. It is within 3 minutes walking distance from isolated but comfortable and easily accessible rocks and only 8 minutes walk to a beautiful long golden sandy beach, where the water is shallow for a long stretch and, therefore, perfect for visitors with small children. There are also other beaches to choose from, some suited for wind and kite-surfing due to constant windy conditions. A few kilometres away one can easily reach the most important towns renowned for the sicilian baroque architecture (Scicli, Noto, Modica and Ragusa Ibla) and also the important Nature Riserve of Vendicari. In a day one can travel further afield visiting some of the most important archaeological sites in the Mediterranean namely Syracuse (Siracusa) Taormina and Agrigento.
The Nonna's House has 3 bedroons, one double (with the possibility of adding a further bed), one with a bunk bed and one with a wide single bed.
The 4 terraces each with a sea view offer the possibility of sunshine and shade throughout the day. There is also a large kitchen, an even larger living room, 3 bathrooms, a small garden with an open-air shower, a shady car- parking spot and WiFi connection. We welcome families with children but unfortunately there is no wheelchair access due to the presence of stairs
La Casa della Nonna is a spacious, well appointed apartment in Marina di Modica. The four bedrooms, three bathrooms, large well equipped kitchen and three terraces worked very well for the four of us who stayed there. Parking is available outside the first floor apartment which is on a quiet, residential road. There are views to the sea which is about a 5 minute walk to a rocky beach but if you walk along the seafront towards the town centre, you reach a really nice sandy beach with beach clubs which is about 10 minutes walk away. The town itself is quite small but does have a few nice bars and restaurants as well as a small (website hidden) Fiore is well worth a visit for its delicious home made ice creams and granitas! Larger supermarkets were in nearby towns about 10 minutes drive away. The main road which connects to the motorway is very closeby making this an ideal base to explore the South of Sicily. We easily visited as far as Taormina on the East coast and Gela on the west. A car is essential to explore Sicily. As you are in 'Montalbano' country, you should also visit his house at Punta Secca which is not far away! Olivella was very flexible on check in and check out. She met us at the airport and gave us directions to the apartment and a wifi receiver but the signal at the apartment was very weak so we were unable to receive it there. We were met at the apartment by a very nice lady called Margerita who gave us the keys (only one set) and showed us round and how to use everything. She also left us her number in case of any problems. The apartment is very much as per the photos and we would recommend a stay there.
Нам все понравилось. Очень уютный и большой дом. Близко от моря.
Тихий и замечательный городок. Напомнил нам поездку в Линьяно.
Оливелла была в отъезде, но нас встретила и проводила ее подруга.
La casa è confortevolissima e mantiene in pieno le promesse!!L'accoglienza di Olivella ci ha fatto sentire di essere tra amici. A questo si aggiunge un mare splendido davvero raggiungibile a piedi e una località strategica per raggiungere tutti i posti da visitare!! Unica pecca le indicazioni stradali che sono a dir poco "fantasiose"(ci siamo perse più di una volta....) compensate però dall'enorme gentilezza di tutti quelli a cui abbiamo chiesto aiuto.
