A lovely place with a beautiful view. Christoph's apartment is a charming place to stay within the weaving streets of Modica Alta. The view from the terrace is amazing, especially as the sun goes down. The apartment itself is comfortable and well equipped, although the internet can be a bit slow at certain times of day. Modica itself is a beautiful and atmospheric place. We loved wondering the streets and little alleyways. The upper section where the apartment is based is a maze of small streets, and there are some great restaurants up there. The main street in lower Modica is about a 15 minute walk (and about 20 minutes of good exercise uphill back!), and is also a great place to walk around. The surrounding area (Ragusta, Noto etc) are also fascinating and there are good beaches 45 minutes away. Christoph was a great host, giving helpful suggestions on where to visit en route and where to eat in Modica. Maria, who looks after the arrival, was also helpful during check in. Would thoroughly recommend a visit to this beautiful apartment and town,

The house is brilliantly located, very well kept and has great facilities, everything you need. The host was also really accomodating when we arrived considering how late we were. Thank you Christoph and Maria!

A few good and bad things about the apartment: The apartment had all the equipment we needed. It's located in a beautiful area of Modica's old town, a very quite and relaxing place. The balcony is the apartment's best feature. Great for a couple. We didn't meet Christoph personally but he seemed nice and helpful from our few (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) communications. However, in the apartment we were severely bitten by something we thought to be mosquitoes at the beginning, only to find out later that it wasn't mosquitoes and whatever it was, we brought it back with us. A day after we left Modica we still had new "bites", we probably got it on our clothes/skin from something in the apartment. We were worried about it and even went to the pharmacy to ask what can be done. Eventually, the second day after we left the apartment was fine, we didn't have new bites, but needless to say how "itchy" was our stay in the apartment. In addition, the air-conditioning is located in the living room-kitchen area and the bedroom is upstairs, which means the cool air doesn't reach up there. I woke up a few times during the night just from the heat in our bedroom. One last thing, the internet wasn't working all the time so well. Whenever we would arrive to the apartment after being outside for a while we would need to shut down the system of the internet and wait for it to work again, but sometime that didn't work either.

Nice Flat with a nice view from the terrace. Everything was good except the water, during 1 day there was no water in the flat, but I guess it was due to the city of Modica. Thanks Christoph

Response from Christoph:
Thank you Damien for giving your feedback! In fact the water supply at Modica can be irregular at times, often there is maintenance and repair work on the communal water pipes, sorry for this mishap during your stay.

The flat was lovely - clean, cozy and with nice little details. Its terrace had an amazing view of Modica bassa and is located in a rather non-touristic neighbourhood where people start greeting you on the second day. Organising arrival and departure was very laid back. In case you have a car, you need to drive and park in fairly small streets. It's totally doable! But may need getting used to.

The house was great - it had everything we needed, from the kitchen with fridge and a little freezer, to the bathroom with the washingmachine, to the air conditioning. And the view from the terrace is really wonderful. Christopher was always available, very precise with indications, and we didn't have problems finding the house and parking for our car.

Die Wohnung ist wunderschön, besonders natürlich die Terrasse. Wir hatten keine Schwierigkeiten mit der Parkplatzsuche (anfängliche Tipps von Maria waren dafür sehr hilfreich), aber die Gassen sind sehr eng und für unerfahrene Fahrer wahrscheinlich schwierig. Uns haben Verbrauchsgegenstände wie Seife, Essig und Öl gefehlt. Ansonsten lief alles perfekt und wir würden die Wohnung und Christoph als Gastgeber definitiv weiterempfehlen!

I am German, but I have been living in Tuscany for many years, presently setting up a small winery in Maremma (the southern part of Tuscany, more close to Rome than to Florence) producing natural wines made from tradional indigenous grape varieties. "back to the roots - forward towards natural wines".
