Modica, Province of Ragusa, Sicily
Kimiyà, which is part of Anime a Sud collection, is a stylish artist house with enchanting view over the Unesco town of Modica, one of the most enchanting baroque jewels of South Sicily.
From a careful renovation of an ancient house of the historic centre comes out a romantic place with suggestions of Sicily and faraway countries, combining art, ecology and urban design.
Kimiyà is an elegant fusion of past and present emotions, the exclusive destination of an indipendent contemporary traveller looking for a Sicily made of silence, emotions and horizons

The walk...
