The space

My home is in Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It's a traditional stone house built in the early 1900's. It's very light and has beautiful views of the historic city centre from the kitchen balcony and the large, sunny terrace. The guest room has independent access, it has a double bed and is cool in summer. In winter, we use a wood burning stove. The bathroom is shared as well the kitchen and the washing machine. There is Wi-Fi and you can find free street parking 20 meters from the front door. The house is in a quiet, residential area.

Modica is a baroque city, a maze of narrow streets, steps and churches. The city centre is five minutes walking distance (downhill) from my house, where the main Corso is lined with bars, restaurants and shops and from where the tour of Modica's famous sights begins.

The nearest towns are Ragusa Ibla (9 km) and Scicli (7km), both of architectural importance. The sea is 20 Km away.

There is a reliable bus service to Catania, Palermo, Siracusa and the local area as well as a local train service, which is slow but scenic.

Both the bus terminal and the train station can be reached on foot in 15 minutes.

I speak Italian, Spanish and a little English.

Ana's apartment is incredible, it has a huge terrace with a panoramic view over beautiful Modica and the interior is so tasteful, we really loved it. the location is perfect because it's in a quiet and cosy neighborhood but super close by foot to the center. Ana was a great host who gave us good recommendations and a map of the city, perfect stay!

Ana is a very welcoming host. We immediately felt like home at her place. She has a nice big room and the shared kitchen en bathroom are very clean and convenient. She even had breakfast for us. The appartment is well located and Ana gave us a map and some nice tips to eat in the evening. We would definitely recommend her place!!

Ana's home is a true gem. A beautiful spacious bedroom (that comes with a desk!) with direct access to a rustic winding stairway that takes you straight into the heart of the city in 5m. And her massive terrace overlooking the city is nothing short of spectacular. In short, an ideal place to stay in Modica. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my stay so much, that I decided to return for a second visit to Modica two years later and stay at Ana's house again. Returning to Ana's is like coming home. She is an open and friendly host who creates a welcoming environment in her lovely home. Since it was June, I thoroughly enjoyed Ana's amazing terrace with it's stunning views which are particularly beautiful at night with a glass of wine and cooler temperatures. I rented a car this time and found safe parking very close by her house. I highly recommend staying at Ana's and will definitely stay here on my next trip......

Ana is a fantastic host. Her house is a dream. I came to Modica twice for work and I stayed with her both times--what a treat.
