El alojamiento
Casa Niria in Sicilian means, ‘ home in the area of Saint Andrea,’and is a beautifully restored two-level heritage home with a panoramic view of Modica Bassa; a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The restorations were done by a master stone mason to combine all the charm of a heritage home with the open concept of a contemporary lifestyle and is a stunning blend of old and new: original stone walls combined with ceramic floors. Decorative tiles and polished lava stone counters complete the kitchen


The house can accommodate 4 adults and one small child and features a secure entrance way to the courtyard, two bedrooms with an adjoining three-piece bathroom. The master bedroom can easily accommodate a crib (cot) or small bed for a young child. The second bedroom is a double that can be made into two singles. The top floor is open plan with a living room , dining area, and for those who like to cook a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a five - piece bathroom with tub and laundry area with a washer and dryer. An outdoor terrace ,complete with a barbecue and seating for five, overlooks Modica’s historic baroque centre where one can savour the ambiance along with a glass of wine or an early morning coffee. The house itself is located in a charming residential neighborhood just minutes away from Modica’s cafes, restaurants and shops. Being within a closed courtyard adds an extra security feature. Free parking is available nearby (Giorgio will advise on arrival), approximately 3-4 walk minutes away from Casa Niria. For stays of seven days or longer, it is possible for Giorgio, the property manager, to obtain a permit from the local Commune, which will allow you to park in the street next to Casa Niria.


Although it is a heritage building Casa Niria is a comfortable home and well suited for family living. Casa Niria also has all the necessities associated with modern living: Wi-Fi, HD Smart TV, A/C, central heating, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer, a fully equipped kitchen, window screens and a terrace with a gas barbecue. One of the two bathrooms has a bathtub when you just need to soak. There is a collection of movies on flash drives for easy viewing.


The fully equipped kitchen is a traditional Italian design befitting the age of the house; with open cupboards and black lava rock counters, decorative tiles and a tiled floor.

We are a family of three from the UK, who have spent numerous fabulous holidays travelling through Italy, and Sicily in particular. On one of our visits to Modica we saw Casa Niria advertised and decided to purchase this wonderful property, having been won over by the stunning view of Modica Bassa from the balcony. The house has been beautifully restored by a Dave and Barbara, a Canadian couple who originally bought it in 2013 and it benefits from many home comforts. We have become close friends with the property manager Giorgio and our children, being of similar ages, play together during our visits.

About Modica - “With its steeply stacked centre and spectacular baroque cathedrals, Modica is one of Southern Sicily’s most atmospheric towns” (ref. Lonely Planet)
Modica is a vibrant community with interesting shops, friendly people and breathtaking vistas. The town is spread over the sides of two valleys where two river torrents merged into a V shaped rocky gorge. During medieval times many of the homes were carved from sandstone into caves (grottos) overlooking the torrents. These torrents are now running underground and the main street, Corso Umberto 1, runs along the old river bed. A labyrinth of streets climb up the gorges where over 100 baroque churches are interspersed with cobbled lanes, ancient steps and fine nobles’ houses. You can see the homes carved in sandstone as you walk in the city along the wall of the gorge.


Surrounding Area: Modica is perfectly positioned as a home base to explore nearby cities, beaches, and areas of interest in southeast Sicily. It is easy to take day trips by bus, car, train or bike to Noto, Syracusa, Ragusa, and Scicli, all of which are UNESCO sites. Take a day trip by bus or car to Catania to visit the spectacular open-air market and the Duomo, another great adventure. The famous ceramics of Caltagirone are only a two hour drive away and well worth a trip. For those who like the beach, blue flag beaches of Pozallo, Sampieri,Marina di Modica and Donnalucata are nearby, just 20 minutes drive away.


The area is known for its excellent year-round climate, rich cultural and historical attributes, baroque architecture, outstanding Sicilian gastronomy (wine and food) friendly local people and affordability. The area’s delicate blend of history, nature and the sea has contributed to its rich delights including fresh produce year round, and local specialty recipes for chocolate, wine, olive oil, ricotta, and pastries. Modica also has excellent restaurants. Ragusa which is nearby has two Michelin-rated restaurants.
