We have alternated this trip between larger hotels and B&B's like this one. This is a great value place situated in the heart of Modica within walking distance of the best churches to see. We had Rm #4 which was spacious though it did not have a balcony. Some others do. However you have access to the garden at the... More

Giorgio has made our stay an excellent one. His sixth sense told him when to await us and guide us to a parking spot when we arrived. His hospitality and attention to details charmed us and made our stay a particularly enjoyable one. Il Giardino is located not far from the main street of Modica (10 minutes walk, though steep...

The rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast excellent. We found the place very easily with of GPS, and found a parking space right at the door. Giorgio is a lovely man and very helpful. Unfortunately, do to a mix-up, we ended up in room #1, and it is right on the busy but very small road. Room 1 is... More

Nice, huge room with balcony and a wonderful view of the hills and garden (not the city itself), clean and great bathroom with everything you could hope for (real shower gel and not that cheap one was very thoughtful and courteous), amazing breakfast...

We arrived very late at night in Modica. The owner, Giorgio, was so very kind to us. He helped us find parking along the street a little ways down from the B&B, even directing the car into place. The view of the building from the streetis definitely not reflective of what is inside. We were given a very nice suite... More

This B&B is situated in Alta part of Modica, on the top of the hill. It is a family run place and they take great pride in their B&B. Our room with a nice terrace was facing the valley with some beautiful views. The whole place was immaculately clean and beautifully presented in rustic but modern style.The owner is a... More

We stayed at this great bed and breakfast for one night during our tour around Sicily. It is located in a fully renovated house in the old town of Modica - very nice/large rooms, beautiful terrasse and very friendly host. Would be even better if internet was available.
