Description

Villa al Castello is a charming and comfortable guesthouse, located in the famous area of Val di Noto, near Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Villa lies on a rocky spur above the suggestive rupestral construction of so-called “Castello“ ("The Castle“), in such a singular and exclusive position. The building overlooks the well-known Cava d'Ispica ("Ispica Cave"), a long rocky valley (about 13 Km long) which preserves countless archaeological evidence and contains important species of the Mediterranean flora and fauna.

The house, at its origin, once residence for the sharecroppers, has been restored using local natural construction materials, typical for this area, such as dry-stone and wood.

The villa includes six comfortable rooms, each of them with private entrance and bathroom, air conditioning, minibar and LCD 26 TV. Five rooms are on the ground floor, one bedroom is located on the lower ground floor.

Location description from manager

The Sicily region

This charming and comfortable Villa is located in the famous area of Val di Noto, cradle of the late-baroque art and architecture, more exactly in the land of Modica, a UNESCO world heritage site. The Villa lies on a rocky spur over the striking rocky formation of the so-called “Castello“ ("THE CASTLE“), an exclusive and unique location.
The property overlooks the well-known Cava d'Ispica, a long rocky canyon (13 Km long) which preserves countless archaeological finds and contains important and species of the Mediterranean flora and fauna.

Peace and inner calm are emphasised by the atmosphere of tranquillity that dominates this charming place, immersed in the middle of a spectacular nature, a pearl of rare beauty.
You will be guided to discover the true meaning of slow-living.

Il "Castello" as well as Cava d'Ispica, are depicted in a few engravings from the 700 by a French painter/traveller which belong to a collection called "Voyage Pittoresque des Isles de Sicile de Malte et de Lipari” which can be visited at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg as well as the Louvre in Paris.

The so-called "Castello", a rock settlement, located just below Villa Al Castello, are essentially caves over 4 levels, in which the locals used to live in ancient times and until 1950. Sharecroppers who used to work for the grandfather of Villa Al Castello's current owner, were the last inhabitants. The grandfather then built Casa Al Castello to offer the workers more dignified living conditions.

The golden beaches of Pozzallo, Sampieri, S. Lorenzo, Cala Mosche, as well as the natural oisis of Vendicari and also the Southern extremity of Sicily with its sea town of Portopalo of Capo Passero (at a distance of about 15-35 Km). From here it's also easy to reach the charming baroque-cities of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto (at about 15-30 Km).

Within walking distance of the house, you will find the prehistoric necropolis of Calicantone, dating back to the Antique Bronze Age (2200 - 1400 b.C.) Composed of a hundred graves dug into the wall rock decorated with columns, pillars and ledges, this is a unique sight to behold.

Given the location of the villa and the transport system in Sicily, it is advisable to travel by car.

Modica

This is a self-catering guesthouse, you will find a number of grocery stores in the center of Modica.

On request, we would be delighted to organize guided tours and visits inside the Archaeological Park of Cava d'Ispica. These are trekking trips, that vary in length providing breath-taking panoramic views of the sites, including the Iblei Mountains.

Main distances:
Ispica: 15.8Km
Ragusa: 19.3Km
Taormina: 178Km
Palermo: 319Km
