La Casetta Modica

Townhouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
This self-catering holiday rental home is a romantic pied a terre, set in the warm and timeless historic centre of Modica in south eastern Sicily.
The enchanting baroque town of Modica is a UNESCO site and has a lot to offer. It has a lively local atmosphere, boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants and the true feel of laid-back Mediterranean life.
La Casetta is a renovated 300-year old cottage located on a medieval road in the historic centre of Modica Bassa. It has a full kitchen, dining area, sofa bed and bathroom with shower. Access to the cosy loft bedroom is by a spiral staircase, where you have a comfortable king-size bed. This property is best suited to two adults, or couples with a child over 5 years old.
The property has air conditioning/heating so is great for stays at any time of year.
While there is no outside terrace, our great value-for-money price will allow you to spend time at any of Modica's pavement cafes and indulge in as much gelati and and aperativi as you like.
Nearby you have supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and lots of historic sites to see. Modica is famous for its chocolate; every year the town hosts the Eurochocolate expo.
In 2003 UNESCO added the city of Modica and the surrounding area to the World Heritage List for its baroque buildings and architectural design unique to this part of Sicily. Modica, built between two valleys and hills, is also called the Positano of Sicily.
If you do not wish to drive there is plenty to see in Modica and its environs, using public transport. Beaches are 25 minutes away.
If you have a car, Modica is within easy driving distance of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto, three other noted Baroque towns, as well as beaches at Marina di Modica, Donnalucata and Sampieri. Many of these places have been used in the filming of the Montalbano TV series.
