I was in this cute property for 3 weeks ! Travelling in Sicily alone I chose this for its great value and proximity to other places I wanted to visit, which I did all by bus.
Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, Syracreuse, Marina de Modica, Prozello and of course Modica itself.
Inbetween exploring I was doing some writing and it was a great base for that also. Situated close to the town but in an authentic safe neighbourhood with no passing traffic I congratulate myself on a little gem of a find.
Katherine could not have been more helpful and is genuinely a nice person and as far away from a shark lanlady as you can get.
For a romantic getaway or a creatives den you will find it difficult to get anything better in this price range.
Well equipped and clean.
Live like a local in Modica
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Modica, enjoying the special Easter festivities, including Vasa Vasa and, a week later, the St. Giorgio festivities, including spectacular fireworks! From Modica we took day trips to Noto, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Ragusa, the castle of Donnafugata, and the beaches from Marina di Ragusa to Punta Secca, including the beach home of "Commissario Montalbano." We enjoyed the local shopping for fresh meats, cheeses & produce, but also enjoyed dining out at a lovely restaurant (ask Katharine), called something like "A Puntia Ro Vinu," for Sicilian specialties at very reasonable prices. The house is small, but very efficient & comfortable. Neighbors were friendly. We hope to return for another visit soon!
Perfect introduction to Sicily
We have just spent an idyllic two weeks in beautiful Modica staying at La Casetta. Perfectly situated, just under a casual ten minute walk from the town centre, La Casetta is ideal for a couple and is very clean, compact and practical. Giorgio, the owner, is extremely helpful and took great pride in looking after us and introducing us to the best local restaurants, sights and experiences including a visit to a local farm where we samples freshly made ricotta. Modica itself is a myriad of beautiful baroque style buildings, it was a pleasure to wander through the streets which are build up on either side of the main thouroughfare of the town. Eating and drinking in all the local restaurants proved to be very inexpensive. Public Transport was fine, buses kept to timetable although were few and far between - especially on a Sunday. If you want to explore the whole area fully, car hire would have to be recommended. Sampieri and Marina di Modica are two beaches about half an hour away by bus. We visited Siracuse for the day which was a beautiful and historical treat (much more "touristy" though, and therefore slightly more pricey to eat out.) Would 100% recommend a stay at La Casetta, Giorgio and his wife Antonella are efintiely superb hosts and make Modica a perfect location for a relaxing and blissful holiday.
Thank you ,we look forward to meet you again..
Cozy, Comfortable & Lovely accommodation
Choosing La Casetta to discover both the beautiful Baroque City of Modica and the South of Sicily was really an excellent decision. This holiday home is ideal for any couple or a family with one or two children to discover the real tastes, views and Sicilian life. Very very close to the centre of the town. Giorgio and his family are always available and really helpful. Excellent restaurants, pizzerias and of course Sicilian sweets, especially the fat-free chocolate of Modica. I do highly recommend it and will return.
a very pleasant stay in modica thanks to a outgoing,friendly and helpful Giorgio, the appartment was very convenient and perfect for the proximity to modica's highlights would recommend it to other fellow travellers.thank you
Thank you and hope to have you again in our apartment...
Modica is fabulous
I stayed here with my 2 teenage children.
We had a great time. It is a cosy flat but very comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped.
The food in Modica is fantastic whether it is stuff from the supermarkets, restaurants, takeaway . grocery stores or the fruit and veg vans in the street.
There is lots to do, we visited Syracuse and the surrounding area around Modica and loved it. Modica itself is very beautiful and the neighbours around the flat were charming. There was a very nice safe feel in the town.
George the owner met us and was an absolutely charming and delightful host. He showed the kids were to get the best foccacce, arancini, pizza and chocolate. He was very helpful with information and our laundry.
I would stay here again - no problems
Thank you George
many thanks ...it was a pleasure meeting you all,your kids are great kids..thank you
