The space

The House is near Sant’Anna, just over Corso Umberto I° It is in the centre of Modica but in a silent and quiet position and you can reach it in 5 minute walking. You’ll be captured by the flavours and the colours of its nice terrace where it is possible taking your breakfast or romantic dinners and fashinated by the incredible big cave in the house where is the kitchen and one of the 2 bathrooms. A nice living room in a tipical dammuso is the place where Wi-Fi , Tv and music are. A winter garden with an amaca and a confortable sofa is the perfect place for your relax after a day in the sun just after a romantic shower in the cave! The whole house keeps the historical memory of its past and all the materials used to rebuild it are tipically Sicilian. Thanks to this particular zone (no cars admitted) the house is perfect for children and for your animals. Minimum a week renting.
At your arrival Maria Luisa Agnesi will show you every thing explaining how to manage properly the house and the appliances in it. Be carefull not wasting the water that is very precious here in Modica.

Guest access

to the whole house, but if you are a couple can you rent it the same. Ask the price.

Interaction with guests

Maria Luisa Agnesi will receive you and show you the house and its secrets. She will help you even for tours and special visit of the town.

Other things to note

Remember that in Modica water is precious so you must take care of it. Every morning new water is collected from the Comune and that is enough for showers and washing dishes (1000 litres at disposal every day plus the water given in the morning). The terrace has a appliance for watering the flowers automatically so don't close the water outside nor the appliance. When you go out close the net in the terrace so to avoid small animals entering the rooms.

The House of the Indian figs was very much as described in the listings. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the terrace adjoining the main bedroom. The downstairs area which is partially carved into the cave will be a great respite in the height of summer. The house is centrally located and a short walk into the lovely town of Modica though beware that it is very steep and not for the infirm. This was our first trip to Sicily, the food in particular lived up to its reputation.

Response from Marina:
Dear Peter, we were ready to take you home the first time when you arrived at Modica, but you decided to do by yourself and that was the problem you had to afford because even if the house is in the center of Modica there are some streets you have to cross for reaching it. The second time it is easy and then it is fantastic to have the possibility of parking near by the house in any moment! and gratis!

La casa di Marina è molto suggestiva e particolare. Il piano basso è un po' umido, ma non poteva essere diversamente visto che è scavato nella roccia, l'umidità però scompare totalmente nella parte alta dove sono situate le camere da letto! Dal centro storico ci sono un po' di scale per raggiungere la casa, ma la distanza è di 5/10min. Noi eravamo un po' preoccupati per la riserva di 600litri di acqua che avevamo a disposizione al giorno, visto che eravamo in 6 e faceva molto caldo, ma solo con un po' di attenzione e piccoli accorgimenti per non sprecarla, non abbiamo avuto nessun problema. Marina è una proprietaria eccellente!

Maison charmante idéale pour visiter Modica et sa région. De retour de balades, on appréciait sa fraîcheur gardée précieusement par les murs épais. Un lieu privilégié pour rencontrer des siciliens typiques. Des saveurs siciliennes nous attendaient pour nous souhaiter la bienvenue. et nous avons bien profité des granite con panna de la Sicile recommandée par la personne qui nous a accueillis dans la maison. Beaux et bons souvenirs!

We hebben een prima week gehad in de prachtige grotwoning. Vlak bij het centrum van Modica, heerlijke eettentjes (restaurant Basilicum is een aanrader) en voldoende terrasjes. Wel even wat trappen lopen om er te komen! In de omgeving van Modica is voldoende te zien/ondernemen!

Siamo stati ospiti di Marina , ci siamo trovati tutti molto bene , la casa dal vero e ancora più bella che in foto, ben arrdata , ottima atmosfera . Unica nota negativa sono i materassi della camera a due letti che per degli adulti sono scomodi , tutto il resto e perfetto .
