Description

Located above Modica in the historic center adjacent to the famed San Giorgio Cathedral, this home is a unique and modern fusion of past and present. Arranged over two floors, the intuitively and carefully restored space has preserved the original soul and character of the ancient structure.

Dating back to the 16th century, and believed to be part of the Castle of Modica, the home was rescued from disrepair and transformed utilizing green technologies and bio-architecture, carefully integrating it into the original morphology with great attention to detail and materials. The bright whitewashed interiors retain the graceful features of the original structure with stone arches, vaulted ceilings, lime plaster walls and floors as well as an ancient noble coat of arms, paired with a minimalist and elegantly modern decor and original works of contemporary art by the owner. The main living area is bright and chic with simple contemporary style and is adjacent to the gleaming eat kitchen with seating for six. With three complete and spacious suites, the home sleeps up to six, each with unique handcrafted features that include lava, black pece and lime stone.

The original underground cistern has been converted into a wine cellar, which is accessed from a striking spiral staircase made of iron and glass. 

The terrace and “secret” garden are sheltered by tall stone walls where you can relax in the jacuzzi and dine and lounge alfresco among the pomegranate, orange, lemon, fig and medlar with stunning views overlooking the Cathedral of San Giorgio. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, iPad and hi-fi audio with bluetooth, 3D LED TV and library. Housekeeping, laundry facilities with additional services on request. Free on street parking. Optional private chef, spa and massages services, car service and airport transfers, private guided tours, wine tasting, Sicilian cooking classes. Electric bicycle rentals available.

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.

    From hortus with love…

    Dream stay in a fabulous place!
    Hortus is a corner of paradise in the land of Sicily. peace, relaxation, health within the Sicilian baroque. while sitting comfortably in the garden you can admire the bell tower of the church of San Giorgio. a few km known, ragusa, scicli. 15 minutes by car and you are at the beach. the owners luca and jolanda transmit with simplicity and sympathy the immense passion that they feed for this land and for art in general. hospitality at the highest levels. Do not miss the candlelit dinner in the garden for any reason in the world and prepared live by the chef adriana and accompanied by wines from the cellar carved into the rock of hortus.
    only problem: once you’ve been here … no other facility will ever like you like this!

    The magic of a place ……

    This structure is a magical place, where one feels that the energies are positive and full of love. I spent some lovely days that allowed my soul to recover. The garden is fascinating at all hours of the day and night, it helps to reflect, to every form of meditation and is congenial to conviviality. I stayed in the “air” room that overlooks a terrace that allowed me the night to enjoy the charm of the garden, with its fruit trees, with the pomegranate adjacent to the water mirror of the circular tank with the whirlpool, the baroque beauty of the bell tower of the Cathedral of San Giorgio, the night rustling of the air that dances through the plants of this splendid Hortus. Everything has been studied and calibratro as in a beautiful painting and in the morning …….. it was nice to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor sofa to wake up gently in peace with the world and kissed by a warm sun. I highly recommend it to enter a magical and particular world!
