“Sicilian magic”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2013

This palazzo is not only luxurious but also full of charm and history. It is furnished to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable. I have never had such a well equipped kitchen in a holiday property. If the local restaurants weren't so good you could easily cook every meal at home. Although the weather was hot there was always a pleasant breeze and shade in the courtyard and on the upper floor balcony. The only downside of this delightful residence is its access. You have to be fit to manage to 90 or so stairs to the front door!
This is the most delightful part of Sicily with more UNESCO heritage sights than any other part of Europe. The nearby beaches are unspoiled and uncrowded. I loved it so much I returned for another visit 3 months later.

Date of stay: July 2013

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Palazzetto Polara and touring in the area. Modica and its surroundings are so charming and certainly worth a visit.

I would only like to point out that the steps leading to the house are 54, not 90.

I hope you will come visit again soon. Thank you.
