This romantic hideaway overlooking the old town of Modica is a true fairy tale place. The wonderful garden and private plunge pool makes this such an ideal place to stay.

Mandica is a dreamy hideaway for only 2 guests. The ideal location for exploring the area, the towns of Modica, Ragusa, Scicli and Noto or the beaches on 20 minutes away.

Mandica, built into the ancient walls of this rocky area just outside the center of Modica is unique for its views, its mediterreanan garden and its small pool (4 x 3 meters) overlooking the valley. A true romantic place!  The sleeping area and the bathroom are on the ground floor. Going upwards you reach the living room and kitchen which opens to a Mediterranean garden surrounded by stone walls. In the shade of the big old almond tree there is a terrace with a view overlooking the Cathedral and the ancient city of Modica Alta. 

Going even higher you can access an additional terrace with a small outdoor pool and an outdoor shower, perfect for hot summer days. The real 'living room' of the house is the garden, the place to relax and enjoy the views under the warm Mediterranean light and the fresh fronds of the carob tree.

Mandica is totally private, although surrounded by other old restored cave apartments. On request guests can make use of a wonderful breakfast every morning prepared in a larger garden just below the house.
