Magical weekend in a castle!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 5-year old son and I stayed at la Casa degli Avi for a long weekend in June without knowing what to expect. We couldn't have been more pleased with this magical renovated fortress from the Norman era. In fact, our son kept calling it 'the castle'! Our 'room' turned out to be 2 rooms...a downstairs living area with a dining table, living area, and small kitchenette that overlooked the charming courtyard...and a spacious upstairs bedroom with more than enough room for the 3 of us. The style was my favorite mix of maintaining the ancient architecturewhile integrating modern integrity, for example, in the bathrooms and kitchen. Modica is charming to explore, and also close enough that we coudl pop over to the beach everyday. Can't say enough for the kindness and helpfulness of Simone and her father who ran the place too. We'll be back!!

Viaggio nel tempo

  • 5 of 5

Gli alloggi delle "Case degli avi" sono una vera macchina del tempo, permettono di fare un'esperienza davvero unica offrendo uno spazio abitativo suggestivo e originale. Tutto questo senza rinunciare al comfort di un'abitazione in cui non manca nulla: cucina ben attrezzata, bagno piccolo ma confortevole, tavolo da pranzo romantico, letto comodissimo. Un plauso particolare, infine, alla cortesia dei padroni di casa, discreti, efficienti e generosi.

casa Donna Peppa

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso tre giorni in questa bellissima casa vacanza a Modica Alta. Una suggestiva e romantica abitazione in pietra con arredi d'epoca, curatissima e confortevole. Il museo Murika, parte del complesso di abitazioni, echeggia di storie degli avi che ne hanno abitato le mura e svela storie che quella pietra ha custodito nel tempo. la posizione centralissima permette di muoversi a piedi e godere di vicoli e stradine che rapiscono con la loro bellezza. Un grazie ai proprietari per l'accoglienza e la disponibilita'..

The houses, with common areas designed by SI Moutique (Brand project) for culture, tourism and hospitality facilities, are located at the Consolo, the old quarter of Modica gateway to the old town to extreme rock characterization. A district as a large terrace, a live stage with locust trees, pine trees and oleander, overlooking Passo Gatta and Fontana Grande, formed by high, dense and homogeneous homes in the Way of the Calvary with the 'same name Kiosk, a village with defensive characteristics, with the entrails escape routes against possible dangers. Vantage point par excellence the bell tower of the Church of St. Anthony of Padua.

And a few steps the fifteenth-century complex of Santa Maria di Gesu, with adjoining the Church and Convent, survived the 1693 earthquake and jewel of the Sicilian; the Castle of the Counts and the Cathedral of St. George, a masterpiece of Sicilian Baroque ..
