Cambiocavallo - Unesco Area & Resort
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Modica
Certificate of Excellence

Reviewed 30 October 2017

The Cambiocavallo is a small hotel (7 bedrooms if I remember well) near Modica, 4km from the sea in a beautiful and well kept garden. You can eat at the restaurant in the evening but you must book ahead. The food was good and we were very happy to have all our evening meals there.
Our room was very clean and overlooking the garden and swimming pool.
We had a problem when visiting Modica and Ignazio went out of his way to help us and sorted out everything for us. What a star! Thank you again Ignazio.

We stayed here as part of a two centre holiday 4 nights. Small very relaxing hotel, rooms well appointed with balconies overlooking the garden. Convenient for visiting the local towns but you need a car. Food here was so good we ate in every night. Staff were very friendly and helpful

We stayed here for the first few nights of an extended stay in Sicily. The hotel is small and relaxed, set in attractive grounds with a pool. Staff are very helpful and happy to help guide (and reserve) local restaurant choices.

We had dinner there the first night for convenience. Excellent 4-course set dinner, but not what we needed each night.

Breakfasts were good, and they made the best effort regarding gluten-free options which was much appreciated. (We've found all Sicilian accommodation to understand, but the bread at Cambiocavallo was best - according to my son).

As other reviews have commented, you need a car to get here and get around - particularly to visit the nearby Baroque towns of Noto, Ragusa and Modica.

We were there for one night, we booked 1 hour before we arrived here, so price was cheap, they had suit apartment free for really good price. Clean, comfortable, good service, really good Breakfast. We wanted dinner in here, but you need to order it day before, but receptionist recommeded us A Lampara restaurant at sea, 15 min by car and made reservation for us, really nice and good food.

My husband and i spend a week here and it as so relaxing it was like a little retreat. If you want peace and tranquility Cambiocavallo is perfect. It is well placed for visiting local attractions. The staff were great and very helpful providing a very good service, nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing, although the portions were rather large on some dishes.

The hotel is only a 5 minute drive from the nearest town of Pozzallo which has a great range of shops and restaurants. We would certainly stay there again.

This is an amazing place to stay, it is in the perfect location regarding proximity to the beach but also to visit other towns. I would highly recommend you take breakfast here as it is fantastic. The service couldn't have been better. It was such a pleasure to stay here.

Super rustig, mooie kamer, proper, fijn ontbijt, heel lieve bediening,... Perfect place to spend a few days. Make sure this is the last place you'll stay during your trip because anything else after this will be a disappointment...
small minor: driving there after dark isn't easy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the Val di Noto, in the territory of Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage city, is Cambiocavallo Unesco Area & Resort 4-star hotel by the charm of a charming hotel, in the countryside of iblea in a strategic position, 4 km from the crystal clear sea and at about 1:30 h from Malta. Born from the careful restoration of an old "posada," a resting place for travelers on horseback, is now a modern hotel with all amenities, surrounded by a lush garden Arab-Mediterranean. The hotel, fully renovated with a conservative intervention, it maintains the charm of the structure while the decor is inspired by the design criteria and research in contemporary minimalist lines and sober colors, an elegance that is, calibrated thanks to the inclusion of some traditional features: ceilings warps with reeds and wooden beams and stone walls still visible, others with lime plaster in warm colors to please the eye and the comfort of the guests.
