Amazing location with my incredible history- check out the castle and the path to the valley. Just put the location in your GPS and it's worth in extra 10 min. Out of Modica. Paulo and his family were incredible hosts. The breakfast was truly a highlight with his mother's special treats.

We stayed at Casa al Castello for two nights in September. The property itself is quite beautiful and you couldn't ask for a more peaceful location to just read a book and enjoy. It is about a 15 minute drive from the town of Modica and while there isn't much around, two visits to Casa Ciomod for dinner were well... More

Dramatic location and fun to explore the ravine. Super breakfast. Clean and well appointed rooms. Considerate and helpful host. Would return and highly recommended. Note: Good restaurants in nearby towns but you need to drive.

We enjoyed our stay during 5 nights at the recent builded Casa al Castello very well. Located in a rural area at the edge of an breathtaking green canyon. Charming baroque cities in the neighborhood (Modica, Scicli, Ragusa, Noto, ..). Modern, well equipped, very clean and spacious rooms. The breakfast is very extensive with very tasteful regional food and drinks!... More

This had been one of our best visits to Sicily. Casa el Castello is a wonderful place on top of a beautiful valley. The rooms large and clean. They also prepared one of the nicest breakfast we had. We really enjoy the cakes made by the family. We also want to thank Paolo for his great support and kindness and... More

Arriving only by Gps coordinates at night, we didn't even imagine that the morning sun would open to us an astonishing room view on the surrounding green garden, blue pool and a mysterious historical gorge, combined with only quiet far away sounds and soothing mediteranean scents. The sleep and the wake-up process was amazingly comfortable (quiet and dark room, good... More

There is little point in repeating what others have said. It is all true -Paolo and family, the welcome, the uncluttered rooms with mini bar priced almost at supermarket level, the breakfasts, the pool an the edge of an otherworldly gorge- everything thought of with you and your comfort in mind. Just a few anecdotes to share. Italy had beaten... More

We had a perfect experience at Casa al Castello. The facilities at the B&B, including the swimming pool and gardens, were all well maintained. Our room was very clean and nicely presented, with lovely views over the gorge beneath the hotel. The breakfast was plentiful, with a wide variety of freshly prepared, homemade sweet and savoury options. It was all... More

Quiet, beautiful situated b&b. The owner is doing his best to make your stay as pleasant as can be. The breakfast is just perfect: Italian specialities and homemade cakes and marmelades. Nice big rooms.
