Countryside Retreat

Modica, Sicily, Italy
Occupying a Commanding and Dramatic Spot

Located within the protected site of Cava d’Ispica, and just outside of the Val di Noto and the baroque cities of Modica, Ragusa, Noto and Scicli, this house inhabits a commanding and dramatic spot on a precipice overlooking the canyon. 

A fascinating and culturally important site, the house was originally built in 1954 to provide a residence for local displaced sharecroppers who were still living in the caverns of the Castello of Cava d’Ispica in the valley below. Carefully renovated using natural local materials and traditional building techniques, the house now includes seven comfortable en suite rooms, each with private entrances, five of which are on the ground floor, and two on the lower floor. The lounge area and the dining room are also on the lower floor and connect to the fully equipped kitchen which serves delicious local delicacies daily.

Designed with the simple pleasures and cultural aspects of Sicilian life in mind, the house features both rural and contemporary personality and design with warm, welcoming  hospitality. 

The grounds blend into the wild landscape and feature an expansive lawned garden and solarium area around the large pool with sunbeds and garden loungers where you can relax under the olive trees or the gazebo and enjoy the extraordinary view of history.  

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV, minibar, housekeeping, laundry facilities. Off-road parking.

 

AROUND

The ruins of Cava d'Ispica are accessible via the stairs just outside the property.  One of the most important archeological treasures in Sicily, the series of Bronze Age neolithic burial sites and former chapel, were later dwellings in the Middle Ages. Near to the staggering Baroque collection of UNESCO sister cities in the Val di Noto including Ragusa and Scicli and Modica, it's also just a 30-minute drive to Marina di Modica, Marina di Ragusa and the Andrea Doria promenade, and some of the best beaches on the island including Sampieri, Pozzallo and Donnalucata as well as the beautiful Vendicari Nature Reserve. Syracuse and Catania are just up the coast along with the famous Mt. Etna.
