“Holy cannoli ! Best view in Modica and fantastic apartment (with 4 caves)”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved the apartment with its wonderful terrace and balcony overlooking Cathedral and town . We were greeted by Vitorrio and huge bowls of homegrown veg and a bottle of wine. Everything was provided right down to a beach umbrella and beach towels and even a beach bag for our swim in Punta Secca the "Montalbano" beach.
It's a lovely town with great shops , restaurants and the cannoli and chocolate ( couldn't resist the Batman and Robin pun) are deservedly famous . We were just 2 but it would be perfect for 2 adult couples as both apparent so very comfy but separate and you'd share a wonderful terrace. Not good for small children or elderly as lots of steps in town and flat . good wifi no TV but wifi good enough for I player etc

“Central but peaceful”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a lovely property for those who want to be in the centre of Modica but away from the people and traffic of the main streets. The terrace is perfect for a quite afternoon of reading or wonderful meals and aperitivos as the sun sets over the town and the lights come on.

The house is well stocked with everything for self catering and Mena across the road is a kind and helpful treasure if there are any problems like the water pump. We enjoyed our time there enormously and hope to be back next spring as it is such a friendly town and the people have such obvious pride in what they make or sell be it cheese, chocolate, wine or cannoli.

“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at Terrazza Barocca. We stayed over the Easter weekend and had the most fantastic time. The house is excellent and the view from the terrace over the town takes your breath away every time you look. The kitchen is really well equipped and there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find. Modica is a fantastic place to stay with loads of great restaurants, cafes and chocolate shops and the people here are so friendly. We would love to come back and would recommend without hesitation.
