Carlo our host was really great. Texted to make sure all was good. Had trouble with the WiFi because of a storm and he was on it. The beach and the town was great. Marina di Modica has a great location for great day trips as well. We were here in October so a lot was closed but the restaurants and grocery store that were open were just perfect. The beach was great. Perfect for a great getaway. Enjoy the wonderful new really clean apartment.
Beautiful spotlessly clean apartment in a quiet area that was more like a small Villa. Our host Andrea was very friendly and efficient we could not have asked for better service. We where greeted by Andrea himself and a lovely selection of local produce. Family members live next door but are in no way intrusive. They maintained the pool daily and even supplied us with gorgeous traditional arancini (homemade). The apartment is well equipped with lots of towels and utensils. We were supplied with an additional camp bed at very little cost and while there is not much storage for clothes the Outdoor area more than makes up for that. The sun loungers and outdoor furniture was very new and made the area very relaxing. The gazebo area is perfect for a sheltered lunchtime and then gets the evening sun for a relaxing cocktail. The area is traditional Sicilian and very few have much English but it was fun trying to communicate. We would recommend hiring a car as the beach and Marina di Modica centre is too far to walk in the heat. The local beach is lovely and not too busy during the week but avoid it on Sundays. There are some activities on the beach paddleboats, banana boat and some sailing however active teenagers may struggle for things to do. There are lots of restaurants to choose from along the marina and some nice pop-up bars worth a try. There is a small market most evenings and it's worth a browse. Trying the Sicilan Granita is a must and highly recommend" Tasta Gelato " on Corso Mediterraneo for breakfast, wonderful flavours and chocolate croissants. Boca Marina is worth a visit also, very reasonably priced and great views over the beach. The apartment is a great base for travelling to Modica and Ragusa which is a must. We travelled to the Etna Land which was great having a water slide section and a theme park together. The water park was quite busy but the best part about it was the theme park which opened after the water park closed. Even in the height of summer it was not busy and you got straight onto the rides. A bit of a drive (2hours approx) but a great day out.
We highly recommend and will be back soon.
Thank you Andrea.
