Modern and clean in the heart of Modica
The building is old and charming on the outside and totally modern, clean and comfortable inside. Tastefully furnished and well equipped. The location is ideal for walking around Modica Bassa, restaurants, shopping and sight seeing. Many beautiful churches are close by. Lorenzo was more than helpful. He arranged for us a private cooking demonstration in a nearby restaurant that was fabulous. A great experience all around.
This apartment is a big step above most rentals (and I mean world-wide, not just Sicily): cleverly designed, not a penny spared for furnishings and fixtures, charming and cheerful, well-equipped, good Wi-Fi. The building itself is gorgeous as well, and very well maintained.
The location is perfect to explore Modica/Modica Alta, and its environs. We spent 3 nights here and could have easily stayed longer. We never had trouble finding a space at the free parking lot which Francesco had recommended (a 5-10 minute walk away). Between car park and apartment there is a small Carrefour supermarket and a wonderful fresh produce store. No matter which direction you walk in, there are many restaurants nearby.
Francesco was prompt in replying to my e-mails and pleasant to deal with. Graziana who checked us in and out was sweet, professional, and always on time, which is important if you don't have many days at your disposal.
The apartment's little terrace is lovely for breakfast and/or cocktail hour. There are frequent church bells - part of the charm of staying in Modica. We loved exploring the maze of little streets and alleys around us, admiring the baroque architecture.
We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Noto and Ragusa Ibla as well, but were happy we'd chosen Modica as our place to stay overnight. One day we went for a swim in the sea at Stampieri, busy of course on a mid-summer Sunday, but we still managed to find a quiet spot for a quick dip and dry.
I'd read in some blogs and comments that Modica is a real foodie town, but although we had some decent meals, I think this label is a bit of a stretch, unless you count chocolate and ice cream as food. All-over Sicily, we didn't find it so easy to find the amazing food I'd heard and read so much about. I'm very into the raw fish and seafood thing and Modica is not the place for that. Anyway, this prompted me to cook up a lovely meal in our kitchen making us enjoy the apartment even more.
All in all a great stay and a true steal at its price. We'd stay at Juliet again in a heartbeat and as far as Modica is concerned, 3 nights was really the minimum, one more would have been good.
Thank you very much for your stay and review. Next time, when you come back again to this beautiful part of Sicily, I will suggest to you the characteristic and very good restaurants where you can enjoy the essence of the Sicilian cuisine!
To eat a very good and fresh fish you have to move near the sea coast (just 18 km from Modica).
“The apartment in Modica is one of the most stylish we have ever stayed in. The furnishings are gorgeous, it’s filled with light, the terrace is a delight and you get a lovely view over the city skyline. We would go back there in an instant. The owners, Francesco and Adriana were absolutely lovely and went out of their way to be helpful. Thank you so much for a fabulous stay and we hope to visit again. Jo & Tammy, London. Dec’ 2013.
Joli appartement au centre de Modica
Tres joli appartement, encore plus beau que sur les photos, spacieux, clair, décoré avec beaucoup de gout, avec une position centrale, dans la rue principale de Modica. Cafés, restaurants, se trouvent a proximité, ainsi que des bus qui vous permettent de visiter les jolis villes de la région
ou les plages. Enfin Lorenzo, qui nous a accueilli a été d'une gentillesse extreme et de tres bons conseil pour les activités et restaurants à ne pas manquer.
Encore merci Lorenzo pour tout.
Abbiamo soggiornato per 7 notti nell'Appartamento Giulietta. L'appartamento è in un Palazzo Storico bellissimo al Centro di Modica che evoca le atmosfere nobili e signorili della Sicilia di un tempo. L'appartamento è un gioiello come stile, arredo, gusto, funzionalità. Il soggiorno è insomma da 5 stelle e ad esso si unisce la cortesia, la disponibilità e le attenzioni del Proprietario e del suo staff. Modica e dintorni (Ragusa, Noto, Scicli, etc.) sono bellissimi e possono essere anche l'ideale punto di partenza per spingersi anche un pò più in là (Taormina, Siracusa). Unico piccolo neo: il parcheggio dell'auto, che nei mesi di alta stagione è un pò più difficile trovare nelle immediate vicinanze. Consiglio di visita per un luogo ancora poco pubblicizzato nelle vicinanze: l'antico mulino ad acqua alle Cave di Ispica.
Romantico terrazzo sui tetti di Modica
Abbiamo soggiornato, in quattro, per 5 notti nell'appartamento Giulietta. Abbiamo scelto Modica per la sua posizione centrale per visitare sia le città del Barocco, che le spiagge più famose( siamo arrivati tranquillamente sino a Marzamemi, Vendicari ed Isola delle correnti). L'appartamento è' veramente fantastico,come risulta dalle foto. Gli spazi, dal vero, sono anche più ampi di quel che sembrano in foto. Rifiniture, dettagli e dotazioni di pregio e di ottimo gusto creano un ambiente molto piacevole, raffinato e comodo. La location, ( un palazzo antico con vano scale fantastico!), è perfetta , perchè permette di visitare la cittadina a piedi, ma nello stesso tempo non è lontana dai parcheggi gratuiti per l'auto. Unico inconveniente è che, forse anche le temperature esterne, gli ambienti sono un po' caldi e a ciò bisogna sopperire tenendo l'impianto dell'aria condizionata al massimo, oppure, di sera, soggiornando nel fantastico terrazzo sui tetti, dove soffia sempre una fresca brezza e da cui si possono ammirare le casette ed i palazzi abbarbicati sulle colline circostanti. Di notte, con le luci accese, sembrava di essere catapultati in un presepe.Il padrone di casa, contattato telefonicamente, e Graziana, che ci ha accolto, sono stati gentilissimi e molto disponibili.
Vi ringrazio per aver scelto il mio appartamento e la splendida città di Modica per il vostro soggiorno! Vi attendo nuovamente presto nella bella Sicilia! Durante i giorni della vostra permanenza, come da voi riscontrato, si sono verificate temperature eccezzionalmente alte (che sfioravano i 40 gradi), per questo ragione i condizionatori hanno dovuto lavorare al massimo per raffrescare gli ambienti (solitamente è sufficiente un uso standard per mantenere fresco).
Placed in one of the most antique (1750) and noble palaces of the Modica's historical center, this exclusive 70 sq.mts just restored fine Modica apartment accommodating up to 4 people with the option of an extra bed for the 5th person.
In the small delightful streets surrounding Corso Umberto you will also find typical restaurants and peculiar taverns, a unique way to get to know the art of the Sicilian cousine together with the uncomparable beauty of the Baroque buildings nearby.
The golden and fine sand long beaches, among the most beautiful in Sicily (sights where the 'Montalbano' popular TV series were filmed) are just 18km far from Modica's center.
