Modica is among the cities of southeast Sicily which recently have been declared World Heritage by Unesco acknowledging its remarkably intact urban Baroque architecture. "The city of hundred churches", located in a picturesque canyon inhabitated since prehistoric times, has been rebuilt completely after the devastating earthquake of 1693 in a joyful Spanish Baroque style that captures the eye and inspires the spirit. Today Modica provides a charming occasion to get a glimpse of how Italy might have felt some thirty years ago. The city is an excellent location for excursions to the many spectacular spots southeast Sicily has to offer and the closeby coast facing Africa provides ample opportunity for enjoying the sandy beaches and the clear Mediterrenean sea.

The ancient little house is situated in a picturesque street in a very quiet pedestrian area in the center of Modica Alta, the most ancient part of Modica. Cafes, grocery stores, shops and reataurants are close by and Modica's main boulevard Corso Umberto is just a five minutes walk away.
The independent house has been restored finely employing precious local materials and preserving its original charme. It offers on its living space of 50 sqm all modern comfort including airconditioning and heating; there is a separate fully equipped kitchen, a marble tiled bathroom with shower, a living space with dining table and a sofa; by a stair you reach the loft with a double bed (fouton 140x200). The attached terrace offers splendid views on Modica and invites for a sunny breakfast or a candle light diner under the stars.
