Comfortable, clean and convenient!
We loved everything about our stay at Casa Mascaron. The place was as pictured, clean, the AC worked well, and it was very comfortable. Our host was so warm and helpful. We were shown so much of what to do in and around Modica. We were intimidated by the stairs, but they were really not so bad at all- and the location was totally worth it. Close to great restaurants and the sites of the city! Even groceries to prepare in the cute kitchen are close at hand! We 100% plan to stay at Casa Mascaron for our next trip to Modica!
Great location in a great town that can explore for several days, although did need our walking legs on, well worth exploring though, found some fantastic restaurants that way.
Emanuela, our contact for the apartment was fantastic giving every assistance.
Ok there are a few steps p and down to the car parking area, 69 in all, but don't let that put you off a very well presented apartment.
Modica is well located to see everything there is to see, beautiful towns and nice beaches to the south, Mt Etna is an easy drive away.
Thank you Emanuala, we loved our stay
Thanks for your review. It's always a pleasure for us when guests enjoy their time. Hope to see you again.
Location is not what we expected
The apartment was very well maintained and furnished just like it was pictured. The master bedroom had a decent mattress which is a rarity in Europe and Wonderful linens. The bathroom was good sized a larger shower. Our complaint was that it was advertised as a short walk to the city center. What they didn't say was that it is on the hillside and you had to climb 65 steps plus walk down to the Main Street or up if you parked your car. Lugging the luggage down to the apartment was very hard and harder to bring back up. You can not get a car close to the apartment. If you plan on cooking meals there, it is very limited of pots and pans and serving dishes. They did not have one sharp knife in the apartment. You couldn't even peel an apple.
All in all it was a nice apartment, nice manager but difficult maneuvering the many, many steps and parking your car.
About the location of the apartment, there are only five minutes on foot to the main street and who knows Modica and other old towns (Taormina, Ortigia, etc.), knows that are characterised by steps and some narrow streets. Thanks to this feature, Modica is comparated to a nativity scene, so if you want to enjoy the city in its wonderful landscape, you are in the right place (the old town is populated by Modicans who usually live their quarters and steps too) but if you prefer an apartment with elevator or the possibility of leaving your car just in front of the door, maybe you should choose the new quarter of Modica and go to the old center by car.
The guest house is a young run-business and we are growing with your suggests, so we are always pleased to satisfy your desires, we are sorry because if you would have told us about your requests (different knifes for example), we would surely have satisfied you, like we did for other requests during your staying.
Bellissima e confortevole casa moderna tra i vicoletti del centro storico
Un soggiorno in una casa stupenda, il proprietario accogliente e generoso di informazioni e attenzioni per noi che ci ha fatto amare ancora di più questa terra.
Appartamento stupendo, città da vedere
Siamo stati benissimo. Casa molto accogliente, arredata con gusto e fornita di ogni confort. ( salone e 2 camere da letto distinte fornite di TV e climatizzatore) Appartamento raggiungibile tramite scale ma con un comodissimo parcheggio gratuito a 2 minuti a piedi, vicinissima alla via principale di Modica, comoda per raggiungere molti monumenti storici. Il proprietario molto disponibile e appassionato della cultura locale e Siciliana ci ha consigliato molte cose. All'arrivo abbiamo anche trovato un vassoio di paste dolci, bellissimo gesto di accoglienza (vacanza in 4, 2 coppie)
abbiamo soggiornato nella casa vacanze Mascaron per il chocomodica 2014. Casa molto accogliente nella parte antica della citta' a due passi dal duomo di San Pietro e a soli tre minuti dal duomo di San Giorgio. i proprietari gentilissimi sono venuti a prenderci fuori paese e ci hanno accompagnato fino alla casa dove ci attendeva un vassoio di dolci tipici da loro offerto, consiglio di provare
Grazie per la vostra recensione! Per noi è stato un vero piacere e speriamo di potervi rincontrare.
