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.

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 is scheduled to open to International flights in the nearby (35 kilometers) City of Comiso in 2011. Ryanair, an inexpensive airline in Europe, plans a major hub there.
