Masseria Modicana has the original character of a 19th century farm.Modica……
Considered one of the most beautiful baroque places of Sicily!
Situated nearby the beautiful Modica
The choice of building materials and furnishings help maintain the original character of the 19th century farm. Carob, cactus and olive trees grow in the surrounding area which is riddled with ancient dry stone walls. The large pebbled courtyard, the ‘heart’ of the farm, is surrounded by the farm house, cowsheds and warehouses once used to store carob, wheat and straw. Newly and tastefully refurbished they now serve as spacious and comfortable en-suite guest rooms. The surrounding country lanes invite you to take a pleasant and relaxing walk. There are 8 units, all opening to the courtyard, all with bathroom and almost all with their own private garden, where you can take your breakfast and relax in beautiful surroundings.
The owner’s interior design background, great attention to detail and personal touch show throughout the masseria. The refined country estate is situated in the equally appealing Iblean countryside. All units have wood beam ceilings and you’ll find all the necessary appliances for a pleasant stay such as fridge, hair dryer etc. The late 18th / early 19th century furniture perfectly matches the original pieces found in the masseria. Local materials of the highest quality have been used throughout – the stone walls and original floors made from local Ragusan stone, the, the wooden beams and the Caltagirone ceramic tiles.

Situated in the south-eastern corner of Sicily, Modica is famous for its Baroque architecture and Chocolate. A few miles from the farm there is also a leisure centre with swimming pool, tennis courts and football pitch. Typical restaurants are situated nearby. The masseria is ideally situated for day trips to the nearby towns in the Val di Noto, e.g. Modica, Ragusa Ibla and Scicli, architectural gems and UNESCO world heritage sites built in Sicilian Baroque. The archeologically interesting caves, Cava Ispica, are only a few minutes' drive away. They combine Siculian, Greek, Roman, paleontological and bizantine remains. There are some very fine sandy beaches all along the Iblean coast as well as a wildlife reserve, Vendicari and the picturesque fishing village Marzamemi. Ferries to Malta depart regularly from Pozzallo, a nearby harbour. A trip to Malta is another pleasant way to spend a day. Our Masseria is situated at the very bottom of Sicily, about 15 km south of Modica and 5 km from Pozzallo.
