ENCHANTING FLAT-HISTORIC CENTER, WALK TO CAFES, SHOPPING-SHORT DRIVE TO BEACH

Modica House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps up to 4

Grotta Bassa is an enchanting, self catering holiday home that has just been completely renovated with all new amenities, including plumbing, electrical, mechanical systems, new appliances, and furniture. It was restored to maximize traditional local features, including enhancing the original sandstone cave (grotta) walls. Before the renovation, it was one larger home, and was converted into two self-contained flats. See more details and booking information on our website by clicking on 'Please click here to view more information', at the very bottom of this page.

It is located in in the historical center of the Baroque City, a few minutes walk down a medieval cobblestone road to the main piazza, restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping, Supermarkets, tourist center, ATM machines, and internet cafés. Free parking at the street level is directly beneath the flat.

A few minute drive to award winning Mediterranean beaches, and within a 40-mile radius of five UNESCO World Heritage cities

Modica: Modica is spread over the sides of two valleys, where two rivers merge into a wide rocky gorge. A flood in 1902 led to the rivers being covered over through the town, now forming the main roads. During medieval times, many of the homes were carved from the sandstone, into caves (grottas) overlooking the rivers. The labyrinth of streets climb up the gorges where over 100 baroque churches are interspersed with cobbled lanes, ancient steps, and fine nobles’ houses. The area’s delicate blend of history, nature, and the sea has contributed to its rich gastronomical delights, including fresh produce year round, local specialty recipes for chocolate, wine, olive oil, meat dishes, fish, ricotta cheese, and pastries. A new airport recently opened to International flights in the nearby city of Comiso (25 kilometers). Ryanair, an inexpensive airline in Europe has opened a major hub there. Other airlines are planning flights as well. For more, click on 'Please click here to view more information' at the very bottom of this page.

Surrounding Area: Modica is perfectly positioned for use as a “home base”, to explore this City, and nearby Cities, beaches, and areas of interest. The area is known for its excellent year round climate, rich cultural and historical attributes, baroque architecture, outstanding traditional Sicilian gastronomy (wine and food), friendly local people, and affordability. This City of 50,000 is ideally positioned to tour and visit Sicily. By car, it is within minutes of award winning Mediterranean beaches, and within a 40-mile radius of five UNESCO World Heritage cities (Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, and Siracusa).

Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay in Grotta Bassa so much! The apartment was charming and comfortable, and, because of its obvious connection to the limestone cliffs, made us feel a part of the living history of the region. There was a wonderful view of the cliffs and the city from our upstairs bedroom window. Perhaps the best part was the location – the center of town with its shops and restaurants was only a 10-minute walk down the sweet stone path that ran behind our Grotta. We’d go back to this city and this property again in a heartbeat!
