La Cave

Unplugging from reality and stay in a timeless place, this is the right choice for you. Slow life philosophy, in the heart of the city of Modica: shabby chic atmosphere, design elements and sober pure living.

La Cave is ancestral place, primitive, carved into the rock walls, spread over two levels with a living area above which enjoys a beautiful panoramic view and adjoining private garden with outdoor relaxation area in the cave. The charming sleeping area, on the lower floor, is characterized by the spacious shower and the white soft walls that envelop the space. La Cave is a comfortable holiday apartment for 2 guests. 3 extra beds can be added if requested.

The house was once part of of the ancient Hebrew quarter of Modica. The restoration of the small property has been inspired by the unique features of Arabic houses in the Medina, providing peaceful spaces in the heart of a busy town. It feels almost if you are part of a Moroccan riad.

Great attention has been given to the choise of materials, which are natural, ecological, and, above all, typical of the Sicilian tradition: stone walls, lime plasters, cane roof, stone and polychrom tiled floors.

La Cave is a 60m2 loft style apartment/single house with garden and terrace overlooking the old town. It's like a fairytale staying here and enjoying these views. In (quite) a few steps you enter the old town of Modica which is one of the well known Baroque towns in Sicily. From here you reach other interesting towns like Ragusa, Noto and Scicli easily and also the beach is only 10 km away.

Modica, in the South East of Sicily, is a place which has preserved its beautiful scenery and incredible natural beauty. Here, in the Val di Noto, natural caves and plateaus alternate with beautiful countryside with its typical farms, olive groves, almonds and carobs. We are in the baroque heart of the island, in front of Africa, where the most authentic culinary traditions and religious festivals are still continued and deeply felt by the inhabitants.
