Indipendent Apartments in restored Farmhouse - Modica - Sicily - MAESTRALE 1 bedroom apartment (2/4 sleeps)



Updated: 27-Jul-2016
4 Indipendent units in Charming Restored Farmhouse With Pool, Terrace, Garden

Why not choose Modica to enjoy a Sicilian holiday? This beautiful town has an abundance of art, archaeology, history, breathtaking scenery and, of course, excellent food to offer. Our 200 years old typical Sicilian stonehouse is named 'Timparuci'; it is located at 2km from Modica (UNESCO Patrimony of the Humanity) in the Sicily’s historic south-east district, best known for the Baroque architecture. It is the ideal place for discovering the enchantment of Modica, the suggestive charm of Noto, the suggestion of Sicily, the wonderful Mediterranean sea. Enchanting scenery, where hills stretch to the sea as far as the eyes can see and century-old carrubo trees dominate the landscape, we give hospitality to our guests and our friends in a family environment. The whole property is in 2 hectares. The swimming-pool is carved into the rock of the countryside. From the pool set you may enjoy a fascinating view on the Mediterranean Sea.

Well Located, lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Maestrale was a spacious well equipped apartment more than suitable for 2 people. The description of the property is accurate. We enjoyed our stay very much and used the apartment as a base to see the surrounding towns of Modica, Ragusa and Scicli and daily visits to the beach near Sampieri. You absolutely need a car but this is clearly stated in the description and is evident if you look at the map. The properties are well maintained and the the pool and garden are kept tidy and clean. The pool itself is delightful and never busy. Georgio, the owner is helpful and provides recommendations, if asked, for restaurants. The only criticism I had is that for self catering in Italy the occasional kitchen accessory was lacking, particularly a cheese grater

We would happily recommend the property to friends if they wanted a rural property where you happy to use a car

Very beautiful place to stay. Nice apartments and good poool.

The only negative thing is that it is a bit too far to restaurants and downtown; you have to use a car.

From the Owner

We are from Modica and we love it; despite being ravaged by earthquakes in 1613 and 1693 and floods in 1833 and 1902, Modica has maintained some of the most beautiful architecture in Sicily, in the Sicilian Baroque style. The city possesses a large Baroque Cathedral dedicated to San Giorgio. There is another church dedicated to San Pietro in Modica Bassa. There are some beautiful beaches at 15 kms and a great range of bars and restaurants. Another treasure of this area is the countryside with its typical landscape and the genuine food. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Catania airport less than 2 hours drive away.
