Casa Talia is a very chic, discreet, comfortable place to stay. Our room was stylishly decorated with cobalt majolica tiles, the bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was great. The room had a nice little balcony overlooking lemon trees, dragon flowers, fig trees and cacti, with a view of the Duomo di San Giorgio and Modica in the... More

A stunning hotel, Casa Talia is dedicated to slow-living, and the staff make it clear this place is all about relaxation. Offering amazing views of the old city, the hotel is well positioned - and it’s only a five or six minute walk to the downtown area.. Breakfast in the garden area is a highlight, and there’s another private garden... More

We stayed 3 nights at Talia,and while the view was gorgeous,it would make more sense to stay at a lovely place in Modica and drive up for the view.After a nice breakfast there are no services available.It really is like staying at a motel.The inconveniences associated with the location are not worth the effort.

We stayed here for three days in May 2014, and we were utterly stunned by the beauty and charisma of the location. A converted building,every corner of the property was idyllic and worthy of framing in a picture. The room was gorgeous and combined the best aspects of the modern and high-tech with the rustic and traditional. the masonry and... More

I echo the previous reviews regarding the stunning views afforded by Casa Talia's location as well as the beautiful gardens. The website gives a very good idea of what your stay will be like. We were staying three nights in Modica while traveling with friends. Our friends stayed in Cedro (standard double room) and Agave (superior double room). I decided... More

My wife and I visited Modica on October 2014. We stayed in Casa Talia as recommended by Max the owner of BB22 in Palermo. The rooms are restored houses in the old Jewish Quarter. Each house is converted into a mordern en suite room. As the owner is an architect the interiors are modern but authentic. As I am also... More

We stayed here last week & what a great place Casa Talia is. It sits in the middle of this incredible town perched on 2 sides of the valley - looking out of the window is like looking at a painting. The hotel is more like a collection of individual small houses with lovely little walkways, paths, staircases, & gardens... More

Casa Talia was slightly difficult to find and one first impression the standard room looked rather basic but over time the place grew on you. The location and views are amazing, Modica is a beautifully baroque town in Sicily and Casa Talia is located in the old jewish quarter which was full of character and charm. Marco was the perfect...
