Hotel Balarte is located outside Modica and is literally in the middle of nowhere, but how charming this remote corner is...You will easily find it, if you have a car with GPS, and will enjoy the serenity of the Sicily countryside. The rooms are decorated in interesting modern futuristic design which I found very appealing. Plenty of space in the... More

We appreciated all that this hotel had to offer, country side, peacefulness,warmth! The fist evening we arrived, we had driven from Scopello, stopping at Agrigento on the way. We were tired and didn't want to have to drive any more! The Hotel owner ordered pizza in for us, served wine and a salad to complete our dinner,it was perfect. The... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon. It is very chic and ultra modern. The owner is delightful and went to every effort to make our stay enjoyable. It is very peaceful so feels like a retreat. There is also a fabulous swimming pool.

This is a wonderfully designed art-hotel in the middle of the countryside and the service is impeccable. A real little paradise, around 20 mins from Modica. The propriatress is wonderful and makes you feel at home immedeately. Great swimming pool and outside terrace, and the breakfast is simply superb. Tip: make a night stroll through the countryside for complete silence... More

What a wonderful place! All rooms are very stylish and have their own private terrace with very comfortable sun chairs. You can tell how much the owner cares immediately by the quality of the towels (Maison Margiela and Etro) and the amenities (Clarins). Highlight is the natural pool cleaned by a pond filter-system, so it won't need chlorine. It is... More

We stayed three nights at that wonderful place. Delicious breakfast with pancakes, cheese, sausage, yoghurt and a special lemon creme. A beautiful pool and very friendly owner. The room was big and had an interesting design. The whole place is very special. Seems the owner is living kind of her own dream over there, surrounded by art and nature.

The lady who runs the hotel is a delight. Her breakfasts are outstanding and a joy to wake up to. The location is a little off the beaten track but it is Montalbano country. The hotel provides good value.

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.
