The view on Modica is fantastic, and if you want to feel what it's like to be in the middle of a town attached to the side of a valley, that's the place to be.
If you love a good workout: The steps to reacht the place will help. If you hate steps, this place might not be for you.
Rudia and husband were very friendly and helpful, and explained all the details about the interesting architectural setup of the place.
Prima di arrivare ci erano state date indicazioni chiare per trovare il posto è comunque la signora che ci ha accolto è stata gentile e puntuale. Durante il soggiorno ci siamo trovati molto bene, la "grotta" è particolarmente silenziosa, anche se bisogna fare qualche rampa di scale per raggiungerla. Nel complesso è stata una bella esperienza!
The apartment is nice, completely furbished and well equipped. We were here during Xmas time when Modica was really cold (almost snowing), but heating works fine. Beds are very comfortable. Great view. You have to walk to come here (no problem for us!) and it could be difficult to find the way back to home in the evening, Modica can be a labyrinth!
Overall a nice stay!
The place is perfect for a couple or up to 4 friends travelling. One big room with a kitchenette, one double bed, two single beds. Tiny bathrooms. and a balkony. It is equipped with everything you need.
You should be prepared to walk many stairs to reach the place - we were here with my pregnant girlfriend and a small kid - it was a little exhausting for me to carry all our stuff and the kid uphill. (website hidden) Maps doesn't help in Modica - check OpenStreetMaps - it is much more detailed in this city!!
After booking was confirmed I received a perfect introduction and instructions on how to get there, phone numbers and tourist information I had some more questions but unfortunately never heard back from Rudia. The super nice lady that handed over the keys didn't speak english so couldn't really help there. Not a big deal but that's why one star less.
I'd definitely recommend and come back!!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at La Grotta. The apartment was just like the photos though I think even better. It was very well equipped and very clean. All the furnishings and linens were lovely. We loved the balcony overlooking Modica and ate our breakfast there every morning. On our arrival we were met just as arranged at the Church a few minutes from the apartment and we loved its position up the steps. Rudia had also given us a really useful information sheet suggesting restaurants and places to visit nearby. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to visit Modica.
The directions to the property were very clear and helpful. The location is perfect with beautiful views of Modica. The property itself has a real charm with its uniqueness, it was very clean and the kitchen was very well stocked. It is located in a very authentic neighbourhood with its winding ancient streets. We loved our stay and would definitely rebook this property again.
We loved staying in Rudia's beautifully rustic apartment. Fantastic location with splendid views across the whole of Modica. Cosy, self contained and comfortable -- ideal for a couple. Our favourite place to stay during our tour of Sicily!
Modica and the surrounding towns are such picturesque locations - it felt only right to come home to an equally stunning accomodation.
Rudia's flat was everything we expected it to be and more - the view is breathtaking, and the actual flat feels just as special: beautifully furnished, extremely welcoming and with so much character.
The location, at the heart of Modica Alta and a few steps away from San Giorgio Cathedral, is also extremely convenient for access to Modica Bassa and the main corso - everything is just within walking distance and the steps, while moderately steep, are very easily manageable.
A flawless experience in every way - couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Rudia's place is gorgeous - principally owing to an amazing location which gives far reaching views over the city, and easy access to all the charms of the locality; Modica Alta. The photos and floor plan explain well what is essentially a large and lovely studio apartment, with a cave-like (beautiful!) bathroom attached, in which there is a good shower and washing machine, along with other usual goods.
The kitchen area is small but the only one (of three apartments on our holiday) that had a small electric oven - this proved really useful. The rest of the provisions were more than enough to cook with.
There is also the terrace which, as photographed, is basking in sun day-long and provides a really lovely spot to sit. Thanks Rudia!
The cave-house of Rudia is something out of a fairy tale. We weren't sure if to visit the beautiful town of Modica or stay home and enjoy the town from above. We did not get the chance to meet Rudia, but she arranged everything for us in the most comfortable way.
It is a highly dangerous accommodation as you will not want to leave the place anymore!
