It's so uncommon to find such amazing hosts that truly care about their guests as much as Paolo and his family. From the first welcome email with careful directions/GPS coordinates to make sure we didn’t get lost to the parting gift of a bottle of olive oil they pressed from the trees behind the house, we truly felt welcome.

- Also Known As:
- Casa Al Castello Modica, Sicily
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- “Casa al Castello“ is a charming and comfortable guest house, located in the famous area of Val di Noto, cradle of the late-baroque art and architecture, more exactly in the land of Modica, city part of the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE LIST. The house lies on a rocky spur over the suggestive rupestral construction of so-called “Castello“ (“THE CASTLE“), in a such singular as exclusive position. The building overlooks the well-known Cava d’Ispica, a long rocky valley (for about 13 Km) that preserves numberless archaeological testimonies and contains important species of the Mediterranean flora and fauna (it’s an area SCI: SITE OF COMMUNITY IMPORTANCE). The location of our house allows to easily reach the golden beaches of Pozzallo, Sampieri, S. Lorenzo, Cala Mosche, as well as the natural oisis of Vendicari and also the Southern extremity of Sicily with its sea town of Portopalo of Capo Passero (at a distance of about 15-35 Km). From here it’s also easy to reach the charming baroque-cities of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto (at about 15-30 Km). The house, at its origin, residence for the sharecroppers, has been restored using natural construction materials, typical for this zone, as dry-stone and wood; now it includes six comfortable rooms, each of them with private entrance and bathroom, air conditioning and all connected to the large terrace from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view over the entire cave. The house has also a room with all comforts available for disabled persons. Breakfast is served in the breakfast room or in the nice garden. The atmosphere of peace and innate calm that dominates this charming place, embedded in the middle of this spectacular nature exactly like a pearl of rare beauty, will revive and guide you, at the same time, to discover again the lost meaning by now of the concept of slow-living. ... more less
