Description

The space

An old house into the rock in the old Jewish ghetto of Modica in Sicily, recovery houses craft equipped with traces of the past ,ideal place to escape from the chaotic urban rhythms.
Time has left a precious and valuable strain in this baroque city in the west of Sicily, Modica hides an ancient heart of the most beautiful in the world: the old city of Modica.
The house consists in two bedrooms in part in the cave, a bathroom and a spacious living area with a kitchen, from the balcony and the roof terrace you can enjoy a beautiful view over the city and the Baroque church of St. George, patron saint of the City, and St. Peter.
You can walk through the narrow and lovely streets or going down a few steps to reach the city center where you can taste the typical chocolate, the best of Sicily, and not only still made according to an ancient Mayan recipe, the delicious Granita (flavor ice drink) and cannoli or find other wonders of the local cuisine.
The house is reached by foot, the narrow streets do not allow access to 'car that can be left near the house in (about mt 200) boarding school St. Anne High School.
Modica, birthplace of the poet S. Quasimodo, a place where culture and art are mingle, and cobbled winding streets, steps that are on the verge of collapse as overwhelmed by a powerful earthquake or upheaval in the grip of a raging sea that has been suddenly petrified. Patches of lichens cover the walls of the old houses located next to monumental buildings. A mad genius seems to have had fun creating these topographic forms that are quirky and capricious vagaries of nature and man.
Here you can visit the more than 100 churches, the castle that overlooks it, follow itineraries in different neighborhoods, visit its churches into the rock.
The nearest sea is reachable by car in about 20 minutes and is Sanpieri (also served by public transportation) with the beach of pink sand dunes of "Pisciotto" topped with a decadent furnace resumed several times in the TV drama "Montalbano".
Not far from the natural reserve of Vendicari with its wild beaches there is the small and cute Marzamemi built around a noble Tonnara (where you can find a really fresh tuna), for those who prefer the comforts of Marina di Modica, Pozzallo largely equipped and with a very live nightlife.
The town has shops, a hospital and railway station. Is close to the most beautiful baroque cities of Sicily, Ragusa, Noto, Scicli, reachable in about an hour from Syracuse. You can also rent a car from Catania (at the airport are almost all companies) or convenient bus that in about an hour and a half will carry you to Modica.

We loved Michaela's flat. The view from the main living room and roof terrace are just stunning. The interior felt really homely, full of gorgeous old furniture, really beautiful. The kitchen living area was super comfortable and a lovely place to spend time when the weather wasn't great. The kitchen was basic but clean and functional. We found the parking easily but were a bit confused by the directions to the flat. I called Michaela and her friend who was meeting us with the keys came to find us. Despite a bit of a language barrier, everyone was extremely helpful and friendly, we'd definitely recommend a stay here!

Michela and her friend made us very welcome showing us in to the house and telling us about various things we could do in the town. The house was basic but adequate for our stay. I would say that the climb up to the property was quite a haul and would not suit anyone with disabilities.

When you love the patina of a non over-renovated barock town and if you enjoy the beauty of hidden piazzas and 100's of steep steps and strolls through the unknown, Modica is The place! Unique and inspiring - just as Michela's appartment. You can feel her dedication to discover and live in the past's beauties and bringing them to todays life! We most enjoyed being guests here. Many thanks!

We had four lovely days at Michela's apartment. The location is fantastic. It is a charming walk down little lanes and alleys into Modica, but not recommended for people with mobility problems. The place is beautifully furnished and the roof top is magical in the evening as the sun goes down and the lights come on all over the town. Kichen facilities are basic. We enjoyed trips out to Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, the caves at Ispica and the beaches at Sampieri, Pozzallo and Donnalucata.

We had a brilliant stay in Michela's beautiful charming flat. The views are stunning from the roof terrace. The flat stays cool on account of being built into the hill. It is a little basic but was so charming. Modica is a really great place. There is enough for visitors without it being very touristic. You can get to several different beaches in about 30 minutes. We didn't meet Michela but she was very quick to respond to any questions we had and arranged for us to be met by the charming Luigi who helped us find the flat and recommended some nice places to eat and get coffee and cannoli! I'd highly recommend it.
