Le Case dello Zodiaco
Ranked #5 of 50 Specialty Lodging in Modica
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We discovered Modica by chance - or maybe it was destiny. Travelling in Sicily for two weeks, our stop after Catania was supposed to be Ragusa. We arrived in Ragusa, on a Sunday afternoon, only to be informed by our taxi driver that the accommodation that we had booked was in Modica, in the Province of Ragusa (not the town of Ragusa!) about thirty minutes away!

Travel weary and disappointed that I could make such a mistake (when I am a seasoned traveller) when we arrived, our hostess Claudia was amazing, immediately reassuring me that we would enjoy Modica, as it is a town more beautiful than Ragusa! Claudia welcomed us into her home with Riccardo, for a refreshing glass of latte di mandorla, a drink that I will not forget, recommended local restaurants and accompanied us to the doctor's surgery when Toby was unwell. A one night stay turned into three nights.

A highlight of my stay in Sicily was a day I spent with Claudia - touring two of the most beautiful churches in Modica, the panoramic views of the city (including the two main roads were paved as a result of the tsunami that passed through the town in 1905!) and an artisan chocolate and biscuit company where I learned about traditional biscuit baking (and sampled them with a delightful coffee of course!)

The houses, each with a zodiac theme are charming and beautifully furnished, including a self contained kitchen, excellent air conditioning and Sicilian literature to read. You will learn the story about the Aztec origin of chocolate in Europe and taste chocolate designed by Claudia! Claudia speaks French, English and Italian. Thank you to Claudia and Riccardo for making our experience incredible!

I can't wait for the day that we return to Case dello Zodiaco in Modica!

We had a fabulous time in Modica with hostess Claudia's guidance. She, Riccardo, Rosa and Toto went out of their way to accommodate our at-times demanding needs, including taxi-ing us around the countryside and organising little extras for us. With our own town-house it was easy to come and go, and was in a lovely part of town making walking around and exploring easy. I would highly recommend these town-houses and taking Claudia up on her offer to visit the chocolate factory where she has her own chocolate line! Thank you Claudia for making our Modican experience so much more special!

I loved our stay at Le Case dello Zodiaco. The apartments were gorgeous and each one were so unique and tastefully designed. The location was perfect, so close to shops, cafes, good sicillian restaurants, beautiful stunning churches & views of Modica. Our hostess Claudia and her partner Riccardo, Rosa & Toto were so helpful, accommodating & knowledgeable. They treated us like family from cheerfully greeting us when we arrived in Modica very late at night (10.30pm) to helping us catch an early flight at the end of our vacation which required leaving at 4am (thanks Riccardo). This kindness is something that only family members and good friends would do.

During our stay Claudia went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and showed us all the best places to eat and see in Modica and surrounds. A very memorable day was when she took us to her fabulous chocolate laboratory and gave us an interactive tour of the process of making Modican chocolate (included lots of taste testing too)....The next day she suprised us at the apartment by hand delivering different flavoured Modican chocolates to us according to our zodiac signs. It twas such a sweet and lovely gesture.

The modican people were so friendly and nice. Although I only knew 2 words of italian when I arrived "ciao and buon giorno" , I had no troubles at all getting around as the italian speaking locals were so patient, lovely and helpful. After only one week of vacation in Modica I left being able to speak very simple italian sentences & knew probably 60 new words :) I left feeling that I really had a traditional sicilian experience. Modica was so rustic and not over-commericalized like some other parts of italy. We were really lucky to have had experience. We met other travellers who came back again to visit because they just loved the people, place and food...

The food here in Modica was so authentic, affordable and delicious +++ And the gelati was to die for... The girls and I ended up having 1-2 gelati each per day!!

I would gladly go back to stay at Le Case dello Zodiaco for my upcoming honey moon as it is not only great for families, trips with groups of friends but also such a romantic setting and great escape from the busy city life. Thank you Modican's, Claudia and team for making this vacation so truly memorable for my girlfriends and I during our stay.

Great accommodation, excellent host, good location. The apartments are wonderful and the hostess, Claudia is fantastic and so accommodating. The location of the accommodation in the beautiful cobble stone streets of Modica was beautiful and we loved it! It was also a great base to explore the surrounding towns and close to some very good restaurants. A special place.

Our Modican apartment was a truly wonderful Sicilian experience, our home away from home. Sophisticated yet sweet, simple and classically Italian. Claudia our hostess provided all the assistance we needed and some more, to make our stay enjoyable and easy. With the spoils of Modica and surrounds including bella panoramic vistas, bellissimo restaurants, a Modican chocolate factory tour, glass-bottom boat tour of Greek-Roman ruins in Marzameni, plus the Baroque towns of Noto (UNESCO) and Ragusa Ibla closeby. There is much more to see and do in Modica, for which I would gladly return to stay at Le Case dello Zodiaco
Apartments. Cleaned daily, scrumptious continental breakfast included, plus local restaurants, pharmacy and supermarket at hand. A tranquil, yet buzzing part of town. An experience you will never forget!

5 star accommodation, comfortable, simple and refined...
Friendly and available reception with several usefull advices to explore the city. The free bottle of wine was greatly appreciated :)
Only downside is the difficulty in finding available parking facilities in the surronding narrow streets.

When in Modica again, will come back for sure!
