Cool Finds

Description

Located above Modica on a very quiet street in the historic center, this home is a unique fusion of past and present and a romantic refuge. Arranged over two floors, the intuitively divided and restored space has preserved the original soul and character of the early twentieth century structure. The main living area is intimate and bright and includes a comfy sitting area, a library and the fully equipped kitchen with breathtaking views from the balcony that give the impression of being suspended over the city. Decorated with locally salvaged antiques, contemporary art and furnishings from around the world, the collection creates a harmonious alchemy of colours and materials against the whitewashed interiors.

The stairs in natural black pece stone lead to the to the romantic en suite double-aspect bedroom that features a private terrace with street views and a mansard roofed area that’s perfect for the little ones. The downstairs en suite bedroom features a custome headboard made of ancient Sicilian polychrome-majolica tiles and includes a private balcony with panoramic views. Enjoy the selection of Sicilian wines on the secluded terrace where you can sunbathe or marvel at the beauty of the evening lights.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV, stereo audio system with CDs, art supplies and travel library. Housekeeping, laundry facilities with additional services on request. Free on street parking. Electric bicycle rentals available. Chef service with Sicilian cooking classes available.

AROUND

You’ll be perched high above the city with spectacular views across the entire historic centre of Modica. A UNESCO treasure, there are plenty of things to enjoy in the city and you are also just a short drive to “sister” cities Ragusa and Scicli, both stunning examples of the greater Val di Noto Baroque settlements. Marina di Modica, Marina di Ragusa and Sampieri beaches are some of the best on the island just a half hour drive.

    Beautiful in modica…

    This renovated home on two levels is situated in modica Alta. It is furnished beautifully, with all that you will need for cooking, relaxing, a nights rest. As you are up high above the town, sounds do bounce off of the homes, so the noise of many wedding bands did carry into the bedrooms many nights until early hours, so ear plugs helped me a lot. The air conditioning works very well, as does the hot water. The beds we very comfortable and lots of room for my teenagers and my husband and I to stretch out. We loved the balcony upstairs, Divine to spend meals and a glass of wine up there. Luca was very commounacative and directions were perfect, we located the home without problems. Aurora meet us at the time arranged and let us to the home, as well as explained everything. We would highly recommend this home as a base. Thank you Luca and Aurora.

    Casa Kimiya, brilliantly decorated apartment with stunning views of Modica…

    This is a beautiful property, with excellent amenities like good beds and great linen. Beautifully furnished with artistic touch, spaces are interestingly decorated with artworks.Located in upper part of the city offers stunning view from the terrace. We had many a happy evenings chilling in the terrace enjoying the sunset and stunning starry nights from the day bed. Many great touches like beach towels, guides to good restaurants in Modica and other places of interest. Amalia who welcomed us is bright and knowledgable. We will definitely return to this or their other property again. One of the best places we stayed in our travels around Italy.

    Stunning retreat overlooking Modica…

    We felt like kings staying in this beautiful flat.

    It was perfect for our family of 4, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I loved the details- beautiful and interesting art, wine available to drink and purchase, fresh fruit and chocolates from Modica there for us on arrival.

    The level of service that Luca and Amalia provide is really incredible- they booked restaurants, wine tasting nearby, a private chef in our apartment and all of their suggestions were perfect.

    I’m still dreaming about the view from the balcony, watching the lights come on in the evening was magical and one night we were treated to fireworks over the Cathedral which was really a special treat.

    We loved sharing the special Easter traditions with the locals- the Easter Sunday procession through town was really wonderful!

    Thank you Luca for creating and sharing such a magical place!

    UNIQUE, SPECIAL, ORIGINAL…

    A house is not a home. Except when you find it welcoming in every detail, on every wall, on every photograph, on every stone, on every open window.
    When you find it special simply by being true to what it stands for: a great project done with great care.
    To find something unique in a unique town is not that difficult.
    But to find something unique that balances nostalgia and originality, emotion and confort, style and design in one single spot is hard to find.
    Kimiyá is a house that an artist built for friends, for companions, for travellers, for dreamers and all those looking for a place to rent that feels familiar from the first step in.
    A place that becomes a spot in your memory and not on a map.
    A place you can call home.

    Stylish, comfortable and welcoming…

    This is possibly our favourite self-catering venue ever – and we have stayed in lots. The house is chic, well-equipped and relaxing. Amalia’s introduction was incredibly thorough and the views over Modica are as stunning as the photos suggest. The only downside was that parking on the street wasn’t always as straightforward as we might have liked, but any difficulties were forgotten as soon as we walked through the front door. It’s a wonderful place to stay.

    Rooms with a view!

    We stayed at this striking hilltop house over New Year’s Eve, enjoying the fireworks from our terrace overlooking Modica Bassa. Our group consisted of three adults and two eight-year olds–and we all delighted in the arty features of the apartment’s original and stylish interior design.The kitchen was well equipped and, like all other spaces, meticulously clean upon arrival. The walk down to Modica’s Corso Umberto, where most restaurants and shops are located, was easy to manage and afforded spectacular views of the baroque town. Evening walks back home through deserted narrow alleyways made us feel transported straight to a movie set. Kind Amalia, who welcomed us upon our arrival and handed over keys to the apartment, was a pure delight: very knowledgeable about the town and local attractions and always on call for further enquiries. All in all, it was a perfect place to spend a holiday.
