My wife and I got a chance to stay at this B&B over Christmas. We arrived in Modica right around the afternoon and we were unable to find the property as we were looking for it in Modica Alta instead of Modica Bassa. At any rate we were able to have a helpful local butcher call her and she showed up in 5 minutes at the store to guide us back to the property (there was no way we would have been able to find the place).
On arriving Frederica (the daughter in the mother-daughter team that runs the place) was more than happy to get us well situated. She is by far the most accommodating host I've ever met. She was more than happy to discuss every detail of the design of each of the 3 rooms and showed each of them to us as we were the only guests staying over the Christmas break. We stayed in the room that provided a panoramic view of western part of the town. The room was very tastefully appointed with an extremely comfortable bed, free (and fast!) wi-fi connection as well as a daybed for taking an afternoon nap.
Frederica was gracious enough to recommend several restaurants to us as well as book them for us. One of the restaurants she suggested was definitely the best meal we had in Sicily (Ristorante Torre D'Oriente Di Salvatore Carpenzano). She was able to guide us on local activities, given the time we were visiting. She additionally provided ideas on neighboring towns that we could visit, providing corresponding directions.
The breakfast consisted an assortment of wonderful pastries, fresh-squeezed orange juices and hot beverages of our choosing. She also gave us some panettone and cakes that her father made on christmas day.
The premises has a great patio which I can only imagine would have been devine during summer. The trees were blooming with oranges and very fragrant lemons when we were there. We plucked one for a salad that we made on Christmas eve as restaurants were closed.
As fantastic as the premises and facilities were, I believe it is Frederica and her mother that really make this B&B shine; as it should be the case of any B&B. On the day of our departure she presented us with a parting gift of locally sourced honey and chocolates.
It goes without saying that I highly recommend this B&B.
