Our jobs (journalist and teacher) have allowed us to travel for long periods of time during the summer months and over 10 years ago we travelled to Sicily for the first time. During my last sabbatical year, we decided that travelling to Sicily wasn't enough and that we both wanted to 'put down roots' in a place that felt like home from our very first trip. I spent most of my year off restoring our 18th century home in the historic centre of Modica. A daunting task, but made easier because of the wonderful and hardworking people I met along the way. The renovation was completed, as promised, by the end of June 2011 and we spend our first summer in our new house. We love it and we hope that you too enjoy your stay in Modica - it is a truly amazing town.

Modica is most definitely 'off the beaten track'! Sicily's southeast is, in our opinion, a particularly beautiful part of an already beautiful and interesting island. Its proximity to Siracusa, Noto and Catania makes it easy to get to and appealing in terms of places of interest for tourists. Although Modica is a popular tourist destination, with much to do and see, downtown businesses (restaurants, caffes, farmers' markets) continue to cater to both locals and visitors so that one can really feel what life and living in an southern Italian town is like.

We've also started keeping a blog of our favourite things/places/food (naturally!)
