About the property

Medieval family pension, of great charm and appeal, in Modica Alta.

Casa Donna Nina is a cave house, on three levels, with evident traces of the promiscuous use of man over the centuries, with decidedly emotional features

Suggestive cave house, of about 35 square meters, with a large frown area, embellished with "cuticci" floors (local stone bases) and antique terracotta, with double bed planted on the base of an ancient shrub and built-in kitchenette with majolica of the best Sicilian tradition. In depth, a volumetric extension consisting of an ancient cistern which today is entirely dedicated to a relaxation area with a pool fed by a suggestive waterfall and with a well-defined wellness corner next to it.

Reachable through a staircase, a very special loft area, with a cave traced by the ancient canalization of the water and vaulted in stone. Space reserved for a particular bathroom where the sink top is made of carob wood and a bed corner for children.

Minimalist decor of yesteryear.

The house is equipped with all the services and comforts (kitchenette, minibar, air conditioning or ventilated, TV, WI-FI, etc) ideal for those who want to live their holiday in freedom and autonomy.

It is characterized by being able to have a unique masonry kitchenette, for workmanship and aesthetics, made with materials of the best local artisan tradition, and able to satisfy in the guest, the temptation of the throat, the need to taste the taste of recipes on the spot. typical of the county like that to prepare yourself a cup of hot chocolate or a tea with thyme or sage of the iblei.

Among the common services are included the change of linen, cleaning and planned to request the identity breakfast.

Raise awareness of the myths, history, archaeological sites, the beaches, natural areas and the most beautiful places of this wonderful part of Sicily is our commitment. The love for this land is the main theme of our action.

We organize for our guests tours and guided tours, from the magnificent cities such as Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Palazzolo Acreide, the pristine nature reserves such as Cava d'Ispica, the canyon of Cava Grande, the Vendicari beaches and places of Montalbano. We also offer the best food and wine and craft excellence in the area and an antique car for night tours in the historic center.

Entering the Casa Donna Nina, allows you to experience and smell the scent of the past that goes back to the surface, where there were trincerated villages, the first examples of stable settlements, where the techniques of water harvesting were developed. In this House, stone and rock, together with man, have found an imaginative architect in the water, surprisingly drawing a world under track, no less extraordinary than the baroque one, made of subterranean cavities.
