We loved our 4 night stay at the casa talia - I had imagined what the property would look like in my head but when we arrived I was blown away by its beauty....the views of Modica are breathtaking and the gardens and outbuildings make you feel like you are on the set of a fashion shoot.
Bedroom: We stayed in the Zagare room which was lovely, it had a romantic stylish feeling about it and was well equiped. The room shared a balcony with the adjourning room but that didnt bother us and for most of our stay we felt as if if was all ours anyway. The only improvement could have been the provision of a safe.
Breakfast: Served in the beautiful garden looking over Modica was just the perfect way to start the day. Breakfast was served to us and consisted of freshly squeezed orange juice, tea/coffee (range of choice), fresh yogurt, cereal, fruit, bread with a selection of jams and a fresh cake/pastry each morning. The quality of the food was very good and it was presented so beautifully each morning that we felt we were in paradise.
Facilities: Each morning the garden for breakfast would be open along with an attached lounge/reading area. It was a shame this area wasnt open to guests during the rest of the day/evening as it was such a lovely space but we didnt really get to enjoy it. I am a sun worshipper so for me I felt the balcony should have had its own sunlounger as instead I moved one from the shared garden area to the balcony - had the hotel been full I would have felt uncomfortable doing so bus as it wasnt I was happy to do so. It would have also been nice if the sunlounger could have had cushions on as the wooden frames were not comfortable to lie on. These points I must emphasise are just me being picky as my overall experience of casa talia was an amazing one.
Service: The owners were very helpful in suggesting places to eat and tips during our stay and the rest of the staff were friendly and pleasent. Some other reviews comment about the lack of the owners presence during their stay and I have to say that I dont understand these comments. We wanted to be left to enjoy our stay in privacy and we knew that if we needed to contact them we could and this was all the knowledge I needed.
Advice: Dont stay in this hotel if you are not a fan of walking up steps as to reach Modica town you have to walk for about 5/10 mins down winding alleys and steps. If you want an amazing and fairly reasonable dining experience then I cannot recommend Locanda enough. In the breakfast room they have business cards for Locando and Marco's (owner) description of how to find it was very accurate.
This hotel is simply stunning and the moto of 'slow living' is so in keeping with the property and we would return at any opportunity!
