Excellent boutique hotel near to Modica. Unique concept of nature and modern art. Great breakfast, with fresh cheeses and pancakes, and amazing Sicilian hospitality. Reachable by car, only 8 km from Pozzalo (Marin area).

Lovely place, provides a break from the usual historic accommodations, highly artistic and aesthetic. Breakfast was outstanding for Italy with unusual and home made items. Nice outdoor areas. Try the pancake with pear preserve and chocolate sauce. A bit out of the way but that adds to the charm. Host was friendly.

You will definitely need a car to reach this hotel, but once you do you will understand it is worth the extra 10 min ride. The host kindly upgraded to the suite, which is always appreciated! The rooms are decorated by young local artists. A bit different from the rest of the hotels, but a good different. Comfy bed, nice... More

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast was different both days but delicious, with many home made items. The rooms were good sized and the aircon coped. Parking is excellent. Wifi worked well. Only negative was the patio (and rooms, really) put style before function. Better a few comfy chairs and a garden table than the white cubes... More

We stayed one night at the Balarte hotel for Mayday. The hotel is located some 10 km from Modica. We could not find it with car navigation system and we called the lady (the owner) who gave us directions. I would recommend you use Google map to find it. Don't worry, the location is ideal to explore the beautiful towns... More

We stayed at the Belarte hotel 23/24 March 2014. The hotel is well signposted from the main Modica to Ispica S115. We were made very welcome by the owner and her staff and nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean, well decorated (if a little artistic for some) but all rooms are different. Bed very comfortable. Shower was fabulous... More

We selected the hotel to enable us to explore the area (Noto / Modica / Ragusa / Ispica and even Agrigento). Room and bathroom were spotless. Easy to find the hotel although a car is definitely needed as you need to go out in evenings for food and drinks. Given the rural location of the hotel some additional cooking facilities... More

Room was very nice and decor was something different. Minimalist decor may not suit everyone. The hotel can be very quiet, but it is also popular for families with young children, so it depends on other guests. Breakfast was excellent.

A bit disappointing. We had a double room, with a small private terrace, which was nice, although they could've provide something for mosquitoes as we could not enjoy our terrace by nightfall. The room itself was very expressive, a bit too much. There were photos of body parts all over the place, including bathroom and shower and this I didn't... More
