We stayed a night and booked a cooking course with Maurizio and his sister. The rooms were modern and very clean and great value. The house has fantastic view overlooking the town Modica. Our host couldn't have been more helpful, sorting out problems with bike delivery and guiding our transfer to his house. Highly recommend the cooking course as Maurizio... More

We had a lovely stay at Maurizio's hiltop villa located just above Modica city center with gorgeous views. Maurizio is very hospitable and genuinly helpful. Everything is neat and clean. Breakfast is home made and very good. Our only regret is not having time to try his cooking class.

Had a really good stay here. Maurizio was a great host and had lots of good advice for us. The B&B was in a really great location overlooking the town but only a quick drive to the city centre. Did a cooking class that was great fun. Maurizio even took us to the local ricotta maker - another great experience.... More

We were at Modicarte with Tricia H, so all I have to do is endorse her complimentary review. Maurizio was friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious with home made bread and cakes, and the room was warm and comfortable - pity about the weather, but we ate well, thanks to Maurizio's birthday dinner and his recommended restaurants in Modica.

We received a warm welcome from Maurizio when we found the B&B, having bumped into one of his friends who kindly drove ahead of us to show us the way.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
LOCATION Modicarte's new holiday and cultural centre is furnished in a simple, modern style, and is situated on a hillside, 20 km from the sea, with a panoramic view over the city of Modica and the Hyblean mountains. The design of the complex exploits the natural contours of the 4000m2 of surrounding land, with the buildings arranged on a series of terraces cut into the hillside and enclosed by dry-stone walls, typical features of the Modica countryside, and complemented by outdoor areas shaded by hackberry and carob trees. CULTURAL BACKGROUND The "Modicarte" project was inspired by the cultural traditions and heritage of Modica and the Noto Valley: a holiday centre where nature and leisure, activity and relaxation, companionship and solitude, art and gastronomy, complement each other naturally. Modicarte is situated at the centre of a vast territory in south-east Sicily, where you can also find the splendid Baroque architectural masterpieces of the Noto Valley, protected by UNESCO. Modica is just 3kms away from the Modicarte holiday centre and Ragusa Ibla, Scicli, Comiso, Noto, Siracusa and Catania are also easily accessible. Only 4kms away are the fascinating grottoes of Cava d'Ispica, which consist of trogloditic habitations, little sanctuaries and necropoli, dating back to around 2000 BC. ... more   less
