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 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.
It was so wonderful one day in Ana's place. She was wonderful host and we shared a lot of talks together. I wouldn't be able to forget this experience and her forever.
very nice bedroom in an original house like all of them of Modica.
Ana is a helpful woman.
In summing, good place for one night or more
L'appartamento è in una zona molto suggestiva e vicinissima al centro della città, la stanza è molto confortevole e Ana una persona carina e accogliente. Lo consiglio a tutti!
Ana was a fantastic host. She came down and picked us up after the bus dropped us off...even though the bus dropped us off in the wrong place! The room is in a great location - far enough to be quiet at night, but only a 4-5 minute walk right into the action of the old town. The room is spacious and clean. The bathroom and kitchen were great (no problems at all sharing it with Ana). The place was made to feel like a home, and we felt like we were at home during our stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
Lovely lovely experience! on all respects. Ana is a wonderful and special person who made me feel at home and very welcome. I really hope to come back!
The best apartment we stayed in on our trip across Sicily. Ana's is an amazing place to stay in a great location, split across 3 levels and cut into the hillside (with the views as well). I don't think we would have enjoyed our time in Modica and Ragusa as much without the experience of staying here. Strongly recommended.
Anna is such a great host and her house in Modica is the best to absolve relaxation and tranquility. She has a lovely tetras and she is a very good company. most recommended!
The perfect place to stay in Modica! Ana is a superfriendly and nice host. Her appartment was really cosy and comfortable. If we return we will definitely pay her another visit :) Maritza & Manne
Ana is someone you feel comfortable with straight away. She is really sweet. We were mixing english, italian and french.
The room is just perfect and has a direct access to the street.
From the sunny terrace, you've got a great view of the city.
Modica is beautiful!
The next morning, we wanted to stay one more night but the room was already booked so Ana called a friend of hers and found us a room just accross the street. ;)
Thanks again Ana and it was nice to meet you!
Ana was an amazing host! I arrived at her place early night and we had an amusing chat at her terrace. The views from her house are superb and Ana knows everything about Modica. The room is cozy and has a convenient independent entrance. Gracias, Ana! Hope I can spend some time at your place again.
