Property description

The South, like the direction of the soul, destination for a voyage of discovery both outside and within ourselves. The South of the warm Sicilian nights, of the patchwork of dry walls, of the bright Baroque figures and shapes that have been engraved by the sun. The South of the Noto Valley, land of painters and poets, a thousand year-old crossroads and melting pot of Mediterranean cultures.

The house is set out on 2 levels, features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a children-corner with a small fouton-bed, living-kitchen, panoramic balcony & roof terrace.
KIMIYA' is an elegant fusion of past and present atmospheres and a perfect stop for a contemporary traveler searching for the Sicily made of silence, emotions and horizons

Modica, UNESCO jewel of Sicilian Baroque famous for its ancient recipe for chocolate, is picturesquely spread out over the two sides of a wide rocky gorge. To stay in Modica means rediscovering forgotten emotions, walking slowly through the cobbled lanes, going up and down the ancient steps, catching glimpses of fine nobles’ houses with elaborate stone and wrought iron balconies, hidden artisan workshops, picturesque views of churches and rooftops, secret gardens with grottoes and prickly pear plants.

In every month of the year Modica is the perfect base to explore the fascinating South Sicily, a perfect fusion of sea, history and nature: from the baroque towns of Val di Noto to the famous Caltagirone pottery, from the ancient greek ruins of Siracusa to the wild nature of Cava d'Ispica and Cassibile, from old tuna fish premises of Marzamemi and Capo Passero to the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean sea, from Pantalica necropolis to Agrigento Valley of Temples up to Etna volcano.

 

Manager info

About: I am an artist and interior designer with passion for giving new life to ancient places marked by beauty and silence

Why Modica:
As soon as I discover this house I was struck by the breathtaking view you could surprisingly admire just entering…Use of reclaimed design and contemporary art was combined with local elements and original features to give an alchemic balance, just like the house itself, which is magically suspended over the town

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ecological materials, renewable energy, local handicraft and contemporary arts add a unique touch to the house, which is an authentic getaway where to relax and discover the beauty of South-Eastern Sicily
