Casa Talia, Modica

Modica - world heritage site

Modica – world heritage site

Time stands still. A perfect terrace overlooking Modica Storica, a deserved world heritage site, from every one of the small number of individual little one bedroom villas. Beautifully restored by the architect owners Marco Giunta and Viviana Haddad with stunning details – the door lock key card readers (you’ll have to visit to understand) and the traditional roof structure. The rafters are parallel to the ridge, and overlaid with diagonal bamboo beneath the ridges. Ah perfection…

Rightly tagged “slow living”, you can stroll down a few steps (well, quite a few actually…and back up again) to any one of a dozen restaurants varying from the simple to the stylish. Reviewed in many, many magazines and listed on some well known sites, it’s simple and informal. You could stay forever.

Simple and delicious breakfast in the garden, with the same stunning views.
