Finding Casa Talia is the first challenge. Most Sat Navs will send you to the wrong place and Marco (the owner) needs to find you somewhere in Modica. It is hard to understand why directions are so vague on the website.
Once this first challenge was mastered, we were shown our beautiful room (Mediterraneo) with ensuite bathroom. The architecture and design of Casa Talia is extraordinarily beautiful. Modern, but also traditional. It is no surprise that Marco and his wife are architects and have an excellent eye for the restoration of these old houses. In addition to the beautiful rooms that are each different and have all some outside space, the view from Casa Talia over Modica is truly spectacular. The rooms are comfortable with a minibar, but be prepared for a very hard mattress. We really loved our room though.
Breakfast is in the garden of the owner's house. Opening times are strict and whilst the breakfast is beautifully served, it is at times less than generous. Overall, we felt not very welcome by the hosts and their staff. And herein lies the problem-we felt that the owners don't really enjoy interacting with the guest. There are no recommendations for day trips, beaches, restaurants etc. in the room. Marco is helpful when asked, but never offers more than the answer to a specific question. This is unfortunate, as Casa Talia could otherwise be truly spectacular.
