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.

We enjoyed this ultra beautiful place, especially because of the view!
Laura, Mauros friend met us with the keys and made us feel very welcome from the minute we stepped into the apartment.
We have a small daughter and Mauro made sure there was a baby bed and a highchair for her, which we didn't expect. Also there was lovely Ice cream in the fridge for us, again another little surprise and what a nice gesture!
The apartment was clean and if you want to rent the apartment because of the pictures you see you won't be disappointed!!
We had a small problem with the internet but that was quickly solved by Laura and Mauro's father Guiseppe. Thanx again for making our sicilian holiday perfect!
We didn't meet Mauro but Laura was great and responded to texts etc whenever we needed it. The place was beautiful (albeit up a steep hill from the centre).
Lägenheten är mycket fräsch, välstädad och välutrustad. Den ligger centralt och har en fantastisk utsikt från terassen och det underbara uteköket. Men Modica är kuperat så det blir en del trappsteg till och från centrum. Staden är en genuin stad utan så mycket turister. Man kommer nära den sicilianska vardagen. Havet och andra utflyktsmål ligger inom bekvämt bilavstånd.
Det var en del småsaker som inte fungerade i lägenheten, men detta ordnades snabbt. Vi kan verkligen rekommendera både Modica och lägenheten!
Wow! What a house! We expected great views but nothing could have prepared us for the breathtaking scene from the two terraces. It's a beautiful house with everything you could need to make a stay comfortable and enjoyable.
We received a VERY warm welcome from Laura who came baring home-made local wine, pasta, bananas, delicious ice cream, biscuits, local honey, and other such goodies. She gave great advice on where to eat, what to see, and a bit of history about Modica. If we ever needed anything Laura was always at the end of the phone, and happy to help!
Modica is a beautiful unspoiled town with plenty of places to eat and things to do. We hired a car and drove about 30 minutes to a nice beach in Sampieri.
I honestly can't recommend this place enough.
Thank you Laura and Mauro for a wonderful trip. We hope to visit again soon!
One of the nicest apartments we have rented and we've rented a lot. Laura was extremely helpful and always responded to our questions. Mauro"s mother stopped by when we arrived to make sure all was good.
They left plenty of bottled water, pasta, coffee, sugar, etc. all the things you need without going to the market right away.
Very well located and the nearby parking made it all easy. Obviously the deck and outdoor kitchen were great for breakfast and early evenings
As others have said this place deserves the 5 stars it gets
A fantastic apartment and amazing views over the beautiful town of Modica. It's located only a few minutes from the main street and easy to walk to the key attractions.
The host was extremely helpful, with special care provided, including excellent local & homemade food to try, and easily helping arrange a special birthday dinner by a private Chef in the lovely outdoor dining area. This made our stay perfect.
We were greeted by Mauro's friend Laura in the centre of Modica and she skilfully led the way to the apartment. Her friendly, charming and attentive welcome was professional and knowledgable.
The apartment itself was perfection. The views sublime and everything that we could have wished for. It was with deep regret that we had to leave at the end of our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.
The apartment was exquisite, beautifully and expertly decorated in true Italian style. Oh, I wish I was there right now!
