About this listing
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.
Other Things to Note
Its a really special stone house in the middle of modica. Ana is a nice host and made everything that we feel comfortable. The house has even in the summer a good temperature and you don't need a air conditioner or fan.
Thx for the nice stay!
Ana was very kind to pick me up from the bus station. I had a wonderful time at her typical Sicilian house, located up the hill and less than 5 min. walk to the centre of Modica. The room was large, breezy, with a queen size bed, nice and clean and in particularly quiet! I could finally get some sleep. I can strongly recommend it and would always stay there again. Thanks Ana
