L appartement est très bien situé, restauré avec goût. Les lits sont confortables et en entrant dans les lieux vous disposerez de tout le confort mais surtout, surtout vous aurez à vos pieds toute la ville de Modica lorsque vous accèderez à la vaste terrasse. Une vue absolument unique d'une des plus belles villes baroques de Sicile! Nos hôtes ont été absolument charmants et attentifs à nos moindres demandes. Un excellent choix que nous ne regrettons pas!
We stayed at Le Terazze di Ciarìa for three nights in January, and we had a wonderful time. Mauro studied to be an architect, and it certainly shows in the beautiful renovation and interior design of this appartment. Laura and Mauro's father were both extremely helpful and welcoming, going out of their way to give us tips and help us with things we needed. We'll definitely come back some time when it's warmer, to try that outdoor kitchen and hang out on the fantastic balcony!
We stayed at the end of the year 2013 in this very beautiful home.The equipment is excellent and the view from the terrace is magnificent. Everything went well and Laura did a good job. We would recommend this special place in any case.
Wir verbrachten 2 herrliche Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Alles war hervorragend vorbereitet und die Ausstattung war ebenfalls gut. Als wir ankamen, wurden wir von Laura herzlich begrüßt und auf dem nett gedeckten Tisch wartete ein ganzes Tablett mit super leckeren Teilchen (dolce). Wir würden dieses Haus jederzeit weiter empfehlen, insbesondere ist die Lage sehr gut, da man zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten in der Hauptstraße von Modica ist. Nicht zu vergessen, ist der wahnsinnig schöne Ausblick von der großen Terrasse.

We had a perfect stay at Mauro's apartment overlooking Modica! Laura and the Frasca's were more than hospitable, friendly, and incredibly helpful!
The apartment was fantastic, and the views impossible to beat.
They even provided us with chocolate, breakfast pastries, local bread, and a stocked refrigerator of necessities to ease our arrival.
I highly recommend this apartment!
Mauro responded quickly to all of our queries prior to the trip. We were met by Laura on arrival and she gave a very comprehensive briefing on the apartment and the local area. She speaks very good English and there was no difficulty understanding her explanations. She also responded quickly to any queries we had after our arrival.
The apartment is more impressive than shown on Airbnb; after all, it is hard to reflect such an atmosphere in photos. The apartment itself both spacious and extremely comfortable; open plan dining/kitchen area, a separate lounge, two bathrooms and two bedrooms [one with large double bed and the other with two single beds]. The front loader washing machine is in the second bathroom. The balconies are huge and offer wonderful views of both the lower and upper city areas. Well lit and furnished for outdoor sitting at night. Cooling/heating is easily achieved via the four heat pumps located throughout the apartment.
The apartment is very well equipped for self catering and the furnishings and bed are very comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Mauro’s mother provided fruit and other essentials at the start of our fortnight stay, together with a delightful welcoming tray of dolce delights
Overall, our two week stay in Modica was most enjoyable and Mauro’s apartment provided us with an excellent base for exploring south-eastern Sicily. Thank you, Mauro [and family] and Laura for making our stay in Modica so enjoyable. It was an experience we shall always treasure.
Love the view, the neighborhood, Mauro's Mom, Laura (grazie) and Modica! We breakfasted on ricotta, bread and mermelata with an elderly neighbor who invited us into her home. Everyone was extremely kind.
And Modica has some of the best food in Sicily...
The apartment is very comfortable. It's full of light, it's breezy and the terrazza is fantastic.
Mauro writes and speaks English better than I speak Italian and was a great host. His mom welcomed us with a un vassoio di dolci that was heavenly.
And please... lunch at Fattoria delle Torri.
If we could give our stay six stars, we would have. We stayed for a week in the apartment - it is located in a quiet, charming neighbourhood with stunning views of Modica. Freshly cooked pastries and essential groceries were in the apartment on arrival. Laura was an outstanding host and went above and beyond, including when we had a couple of crises. The internet was reliable and fast. It's hard to believe, but the apartment was even better than the photos.
Mauro's place is the best one to book if you want to stay in Modica. What a view!
We got a lovely arrivel, Laura picked us up in the city centre and helped us up in the hills. She guided us around in the house and Mauro's parents left us a very nice Sicilian icecream with brioche. Jum!
The apartment is spacious, modern, very clean and tidy. The balcony and outside kitchen are great.
We had a lovely time!!
Thank you to the Frasca family and Laura for being such wonderful hosts, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Giovanni and Laura gave us such a warm welcome, with goodies to eat and fresh fruit, and were very thorough with plenty of information about the house and the surrounding area, and went above and beyond to help make our trip as memorable as possible. Laura gave excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do- we especially enjoyed a spectacular meal at La Locanda del Colonello. She was available for any questions and was very very helpful. It was nice to have a car especially to explore the the area surrounding Modica, but not necessary for the city, as long as you are willing to walk a fair amount of stairs, but everything was certainly within walking distance. We recommend going to Cava Grande di Cassible in Avola Antica if you'll be traveling the area, it was one of the highlights of our trip and very memorable. The flat was luxurious; clean, spacious, well appointed, really thoughtfully furnished, and has the two patios-- which made our stay extra special. We enjoyed cooking & dining on the small outdoor kitchen patio and many a relaxed glass of wine on the larger patio; the views are spectacular! The patio alone would be enough to lure us back. We would absolutely recommend staying here- Modica is a fabulous town and the Frasca family & Laura are wonderful hosts, thanks again!
Mauro is a great host and his appt is simply a sicilian paradise. Everything is perfect : the place, the location, the beautiful city of Modica. A Big thank You to Laura who is always available and gave us useful tips on the barocca area. If You want to live unforgetable vacation in Sicily, go to Mauro's place !
My husband and I spend 5 days in Mauros flat in Modica during our honeymoon and it was definitely the best stay!! Modica and this flat is just the most relaxing place in the world. We started our days to buy fresh vegetables and fish in the village, where everybody was super nice, took some sun hours on the huge terrace and used the outside or inside kitchen for cooking... Mauros grandfather explained everything to us (although our italian is pretty poor) and Maura has also asked a very nice lady to give detailled information in English about the flat, the best restaurants and the village to us.
Best place ever and absolutely trustworthy people! Hope we can come back!
Great host, great housing, great house...whatever you might need just ask and he'll right after you helping you out
