About This Listing
Ciarìa comes from the Sicilian word for "light or glimmer" and Le Terrazze di Ciaria is charming 2 bedroom house (sleeps 4) located just a a couple of miles from the Mediterranean coast and the beautiful Baroque town of the Val di Noto, Sicily. This secret gem is hidden away in the historical centre of Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a place filled with history and where time seems to stand still. Along the narrow road that leads to this old house with contemporary interiors, soak up the sites and sounds including the Castle of the Counts, the Church of San Pietro and the flight of steps leading up to the front of the Cathedral of San Giorgio. What better way to explore south east Sicily than to have your own place to yourselves in one of the prettiest locations.
To the right and left of the living area there is one large master room with en-suite bathroom and a comfortable double room. The living space and the master bedroom have both access through wide doors to the main terrace. Soft beiges and creams set the tone of the interiors with white, greys and browns all adding to give a sophisticated and chic feel.
Just 200 meters far from Ciarìa there is a free parking area (in front of an ancient convent) completely dedicated to the inhabitants of the quarter and their guests.
Le Terrazze di Ciaria is just a short distance from the sea as well as the wonderful Sicilian baroque town of Modica, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are plenty of areas of Sicily to explore and car rental is essential to make the most of the experience. The Duomo di San Pietro stands proudly at the centre of this historic town and there are few better places from which to view it than Ciaria! Whether you are conjuring up a plate of pasta in the panoramic kitchen, or relaxing on the terrace of this stylishly refurbished apartment, your eyes will constantly be drawn to the mesmerising beauty of Modica.
The main terrace has different seating areas and is the ideal space for al fresco life. At sunset and later at night, with a candle or two, the view across Modica and its twinkling lights is one of the most romantic settings we have come across. The second terrace boasts an outside kitchen with hand painted tiles, perfect for preparing meals during the warmer evenings.
A unique place
What makes a one-of-kind place this place is the astonishing panorama that allows you to catch at a glance the whole picture,the morphology, the architecture and the atmosphere of Modica.

We, a family of 4, two adults and two kids (8 and 5) had a absolutely lovely time at this beautiful and stylish apartment. The view from the terrace was almost unbelievable at night with all the lights. We really appreciated the outside kitchen, it was really nice to cook and eat outside with the family. Laura was a perfect host, welcoming us with information and all kind of treats, and Mauros mother brought us delicious cannoli.
Modica was a good spot for excursions. Lovely beaches at Marina di Modica and Marina di Ragusa, the town Ragusa was also really lovely, and the Castello di Donnafugata really worth a visit.
Thank you Laura and Marco for a great stay! I can highly recommend this apartment.
Der Empfang durch Laura war herzlich und wir wurden zum vereinbarten Termin abgeholt und zur Wohnung gebracht.
Der Weg mit dem PKW zur Wohnung ist gut zu finden und der Parkplatz in der Nähe sehr sicher.
Von der Wohnung aus kann man Modica zu Fuß erkunden und auch am Abend sehr gut in der Altstadt essen gehen.
Laura hat gute Vorschläge für Restaurants gemacht.
This apartment was absolutely beautiful, exactly as pictured. It was extremely well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Laura gave us a lovely welcome and left us with some delicious food for dinner and breakfast plus a bottle of local wine. She gave us some tips on local sights and places to go. There was also a folder with all sorts of helpful information and maps.
Such a fantastic location. It was our first trip to Modica and Laura made us feel so welcome, bringing a sample of local 'street food' and showing us on a map exactly where things like the local supermarket were. Very useful!
The flat itself was amazing - the photos just don't do it justice. Stunning views and so comfortable; we couldn't have asked for more. The outside kitchen in particular was perfect for an evening glass of wine or Limoncello!
There were lots of great places to eat in Modica, although our favourite was L'Oste del Borgo near the Giap fuel station - amazing food with top service - we recommend a visit!
All in all it was a perfect break, thank you.
Alles hat bestens geklappt. Wir konnten den vereinbarten Treffpunkt nicht auf Anhieb finden. Laura hat uns umgehend abgeholt und zur Terrazze geführt. Zitronen, Orangen, Milch, Spaghetti etc. lagen in der Wohnung bereit. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt und konnten Laura bei Fragen jederzeit kontaktieren. (Beispielsweise als wir uns selber aus der Wohnung ausgeschlossen hatten(-:
Ich kann die Terrazze und unsere Hosts nur weiterempfehlen.
Besten Dank für die schöne Zeit in Modica!
Perfection: that is how we would describe our stay at Le Terrazze di Ciaria.
Laura met us, greeted us warmly, and helped us with our too -heavy luggage.
The apartment is a delight: beautifully designed and very comfortable. Everything needed is provided: lots of towels, shampoo, soap, kitchen basics AND Laura, ever thoughtful, provided us with some wonderful local goodies. The views, whether from inside, or from the stunning terrace are "mozzafiato" - breathtaking . We never closed the blinds...at night both San Pietro and San Giorgio are illuminated. So beautiful. We want to thank Laura for making us feel so welcome and being so helpful during our stay. Le Terrazze is immaculate, well appointed, and perfectly situated. We have stayed in many apartments in Italy - this was the best!
Le Terrazze has the best view of Modica. It's in an ideal location and I doubt you will find something more perfect. We were welcomed with local sweats from the famous Antica Dolceria Bonajuto and local Sicilian Oranges. The location is ideal, central and easy to get around. The weather was a little wet but we did get to use the Terrace a little.
The Michelin-starred chef Accursio Craparo has a Restaurant at the foot of the hill when walking down from the flat. The famous chocolates of Antica Dolceria Bonajuto and Café Dell'Arte are also worth the visit.
I would defiantly return and stay here again. If you have trouble with steps this city is not for you.
