Description of the Modica vacation b&b rental
Our 200 years old typical Sicilian farmhouse is named 'Timpa aruci'; it is located at 2km from Modica (UNESCO Patrimony of the Humanity) in the Sicily's historic south-east district, best known for the Baroque architecture. It is restructuring and it will be ready next July. It is the ideal place for discovering the enchantment of Modica, the suggestive charm of Noto, the suggestion of Sicily, the wonderful Mediterranean sea. Enchanting scenery, where hills stretch to the sea as far as the eyes can see and century-old carrubo trees dominate the landscape, we give hospitality to our guests and our friends in a family environment. The whole property is in 2 hectares. The swimming-pool is carved into the rock of the countryside. From the swimming-pool set you may enjoy a fascinating view on the Mediterranean sea 10km. During the summer you can dine in the garden in your private area.


Area Information
Old town of Modica is in 2km. The baroque town of Modica is situated on the slopes of the Iblei mountains. Each part offers a distinct panorama with picturesque alleys, stairways, stunning churches and elaborately decorated palaces. Gargoyles peek at the passer-by from every balcony and rooftop. In the old town a number of chocolate manufacturers produce the famous cioccolato modicano. Spring and autumn are much warmer than in England.
In 30 kms from Modica is located Noto at the foot of the Iblean Mountains and gives its name to the surrounding valley, Val di Noto. In 2002 Noto and its church were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The current town, rebuilt after the earthquake on the left bank of River Asinaro, was planned on a grid system by Giovanni Battista Landolina. This new city occupied a position nearer to the Ionian Sea. The presence of architects like Rosario Gagliardi, Francesco Sortino and others, made the new Noto a masterpiece of Sicilian Baroque, dubbed the "Stone Garden" by Cesare Brandi and is currently listed among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. The new structures are characterized by a soft tufa stone, which under sunlight assumes a typical honey tonality. Parts of the cathedral suddenly collapsed in 1996, a great loss to Sicilian Baroque.
