The most idyllic seaside hideaway and the most brilliant host!
My husband and I recently stayed in Villa Sara for eight nights. It was like going to stay in the seaside holiday home of your favourite uncle, where everything had been thought of to ensure you had a wonderful stay.
Giorgio, our host, is the most delightful and kind gentleman. As previous reviewers have noted, Giorgio stocked the house with home made goodies and local specialities, all of which were delicious and lasted our entire stay! He also met us in Modica and very kindly took us to a local food market and explained what everything was, followed by a whistle stop tour of Modica’s baroque highlights. He couldn’t have been more generous with his time.
The house itself is situated right on a quiet rocky beach, which is fine for swimming from, but bring swimming shoes of some sort. ‘Holes’ have been made in the rocks to put beach umbrellas in, enabling quite day’s hanging out by the house.
If you turn left or right out of the house, within 5 minutes in either direction you are at long, fine sand beaches. These were practically empty when we were there.
Marina di Modica (the turn left five minutes walk option) has everything you need with a few restaurants, gelataria, coffee stops, a couple of bars and a small supermarket. A larger supermarket is a five minute drive away.
The house is also the perfect base for exploring Sicily’s baroque heritage with Modica, Ragusa, Noto and Syracusa all within easy reach.
We had a very comfortable and peaceful holiday and highly recommend both Giorgio and his lovely house by the sea.
Giorgio was a brilliant host. The welcome pack was out of this world and he went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The house is in a stunning location and just a short walk to beautiful sandy beaches, restaurants and local bars. We enjoyed the countryside on the bikes - the dedicated cycle paths make cycling so much safer and fun. We even discovered we were only 5mins from the brickwork featured in Montalbalno! Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you Giorgio 👍
This was the perfect holiday home
We were here for 2 weeks, it was a lovely base for looking around the southeastern corner of Sicily. We loved the view and sound of the sea from the house and the swimming was fabulous
Giorgio was an excellent host, he provided a lot of fresh, local foods for us, we didn’t need to shop for a couple of days, and he was on hand if there were any problems - there weren’t any.
The house was immaculate, so comfortable and it had everything we needed, it really was better than the photos so you will not be disappointed
We would definitely go back, we really had the best holiday in this home
Thank you Giorgio
A very special experience.
The villa is ideally situated to relax by the sea and to explore SE Sicily. There is plenty of room for a couple or a family of four. Giorgio is the most exceptional host; he not only wants you to enjoy your stay by the sea but he is very keen for you to experience the best food that Sicily offers. I have never seen a 'welcome pack' like it! A vast array of fruit, vegetables, local delicacies, oil, vinegar, cheeses and wine - we really struggled to eat it all during our week. The highlights were Giorgio's home made orange jam and local Modica chocolate. The villa is set up with everything you could ask for and is 5 minutes walk from the beach in Marina di Modica and 15 minutes walk from the superb Sampieri beach. Bicycles are included in the let. Our days out included Modica, Ragusa Ilba, Noto and Siracusa - the roads are not perfect nor is the driving of the locals but these places are all worth a visit.
A wonderful place to stay
We can only agree wholeheartedly with the previous visitors' comments. There was lots of food left for us - fresh and dried. The counter was covered with choice fruit, olives etc. Georgio was a very hospitable host. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. There was a lovely view of the sea and a cool comfortable verandah. We highly recommend this villa. Thank you Georgio for a wonderful stay
Generous Giorgio, fantastic location!
Giorgio welcomed us with the best stocked house we have ever visited: his own wine and olive oil, pastries, fresh fruit and vegetables (the Sicilian tomatoes are delicious), pasta, chocolate ... Every kitchen press he opened held another surprise. Thank you, Giorgio. The house itself is equipped with everything you need, and, just as shown in the photos, there are beautiful views of the Giorgio's small vineyard overlooking the sea from the front sun room. Temperatures were in the low 30s when we visited, but the house was comfortably cool, with air conditioning in all of the bedrooms. Location is perfect: Marina di Modica about 10 mins walk away on one side and the exceptional beach of Sampieri about 20 mins by foot on the other. We travelled mostly on the bikes Giorgio had kindly provided for our family of 5 ... 2 bikes gratis, and the other 3 for a very nominal fee.
All in all, a fantastic rental, and we would definitely visit again. Gracie, Giorgio!
