Overview
Townhouse -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Modica, Province of Ragusa, Sicily
Ideal for two couples, or a couple with adult offspring, with additional space for two more guests: a light-filled town house with its own independent guests' apartment in the fashionable Cartellone district of the Unesco preserved baroque town of MODICA, southeast Sicily, about 12 km (7 miles) from the coast and close to many archaeological and historic sites. It's located in the pedestrian area of the city centre, so it's very quiet, yet only a stone's throw from the main central street with shops and bars.
The two dwellings are linked by a 30 m2 terrace with a magnificent view of the historic centre.
The main house (stone wall) is on three levels: ground floor, study with a sofa bed, and unique cave bathroom. The intermediate level consists of a bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and hardwood floor. A beautifully designed...

We enjoyed our stay at "Terrazza Barocca" from the first moment on. It started with a very warm welcome and useful information about the house which is really only a few steps away from the historic center of Modica. A lot of space and separate...More

About the neighbourhood
The climate in this area is mild and sunny from late April through to late May, then lovely and hot through to the end of September, and warm throughout October. This accounts for the profusion of fruit trees and vegetables in the surrounding countryside, as well as the rich pastureland for the cows whose milk goes into some delectable local cheeses. Another pride of the area is chocolate, which was introduced to Modica under the Spanish domination of Sicily in the 16th century, and still has a number of features in common with the original product discovered by the Spanish in Mexico. Wine lovers will also be happy to discover a wide range of Sicilian wines, some of them rich and fruity, other lighter and more elegant, like the Cerasuolo di Vittoria red, made in this area, that pairs very... more

How to get there
Airport: Catania Airport (CTA) / Comiso Airport (CIY): 40.0 km
Railway: Modica: 1.0 km
Ferry: Catania: 120.0 km
There are several daily bus connections directly from Catania Airport to Modica. So if you don't want to rent a car at Catania Airport, you can easily get to Modica by bus, then hire a car locally for the days you want it. There is also a railway station in Modica, with a VERY slow train to Siracusa. Otherwise the local bus service is pretty good, and reliable. There are several daily bus connections with Palermo too, which is about 4 hours away.
