About the property

A “Window Over Modica” With A Modern Antiques Flavour

This charming “house with a view” is a gem in Modica Alta’s alleys. just few steps above Corso Umberto, which is Modica Bassa main road.

In this charming “window over Modica” the essential white walls are well blended with the antique pietra pece floor tiles and a modern antique furniture.

Is the kitchen the first room that welcomes our guests, and has been created with the concept of mixing a bistro and a lab where to experiment the Sicilian cuisine or where you can be the chef and try yourself to cook the local recipes.

The bathroom is a triumph of ancient majolica and pietra pece, the bedroom is a private place, minimal, where the bed is the unquestioned star under the high ceiling.

Then, the heart of the house is ready for the guests: the living room, where the baroque of Modica becomes part of the architectural. The perfect place to enjoy everything, from meditation, music, reading and also the place where to share those lovely meals that you just cooked.

Charming little place, great town, friendly host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Francavilla. Elena, the host picked us up at a place close to the apartment and showed us the place. We arrived really late, but she was very friendly, caring and helpful. The apartment is cosy but big enough. We really liked the style and admired the collection of designer furniture. Everything was clean and well looked after, the kitchen is basic but works very well and you will find anything you need (apart from a proper chef's knife). It can get a bit humid in the bedroom, but we slept very well on the comfortable sofa bed in the living room. 5 star place!

Très bel appartement, design, dans un quartier agréable du vieux Modica.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est très agréable, meublé avec goût et pleins de petites attentions pour les locataires. L'accueil était parfait et nous sommes ravis de ce séjour à Modica qui est une très belle ville à 20mn de la mer. Le quartier bien que central (dans les hauteurs de la ville) reste calme

avec des commerces de proximités tout proches.

Nous recommandons cette location avec enthousiasme.
