The space

An elegant and comfortable 18th century home in Modica’s historic centre, newly renovated by a Florentine architect. It combines brand new amenities, WI-FI, A/C, and contemporary style, with historic character. Nestled in a charming, residential neighbourhood, it's steps from Modica’s lively cafes, restaurants, and stunning Baroque architecture.

This 85 sq m palazetto features original stone floors, domed ceilings and sandstone archways, alongside air conditioning, all-new, contemporary furniture, and marble kitchen counters. Enjoy coffee on the balcony with a view of Modica’s historic castello, or relax with a glass of Sicilian wine in your private interior terrace. Ideal for up to five guests.

Modica offers urban amenities and relaxed charm. It also makes a great base to explore southeastern Sicily, including UNESCO world heritage sites, Blue Flag beaches, hiking trails and nearby gorges, and Greek and Roman ruins.

Further details for this vacation house rental in Modica, Italy

About Modica: Modica is a UNESCO World Heritage site, in recognition of its 'Sicilian Baroque' architecture. It is also famous for its distinctive--and delicious--artisanal chocolate. The historic centre includes restaurants and cafes, as well as live music, theatre, and, during the summer months, you can enjoy movies and performances under the stars. The historic centre is compact, and easily managed on foot. We think it's a lively and entertaining place, but still relaxed, casual, and quiet.

About Southeastern Sicily: Convenient day trips (by car, train, or bus) include historic, cosmopolitan, and beautiful Siracusa, Caltagirone (famous for its ceramics) and UNESCO-protected Baroque splendour of cities such as Noto, Scicli, and Ragusa. Nature lovers will enjoy the delights of nearby beaches, (such as Pozallo, Sampieri, and Donnalucata) or hiking in scenic gorges. Discover ruins of classical antiquity and early Christian history at nearby sites such as Akrai, or the Roman mosaics of Villa Romana del Casale. Wine lovers will enjoy sampling the local Nero D'Avola, Frappato, Grillo, and Cerasuolo wines, or perhaps enjoying a tour of a nearby vineyard.
