“Modica, Modica, Modica!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were asked by Amalia if the property had any influence on our decision where to stay in Italy. Truthfully, the apartment looked so perfect online that we chose the apartment prior to choosing Modica. Well the photos on the website don't do the place justice and Modica is such a great town - needless to say we are thrilled with our choice to stay for 5 nights in Kimiya.

Amalia could not have been any more considerate or pleasant. She went over everything and we are so glad she did. When you first arrive you feel like you made need to leave a trail of breadcrumbs to find your way back but due to Amalia's diligence and hospitality, she explained everything just perfectly to us.

The apartment could not be any better. The beds are the most comfortable - rivaling my home bed. The pillows were perfect. This is something I constantly struggle with when traveling, just ask my husband! I haven't had this good of a night's sleep in ages - and I had 5 in a row. A comfortable bed, beautiful surroundings, what more could one want?

The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The terrace was the perfect spot to have a glass of wine and watch the sun disappear.

Modica is a great place to walk around, dine and really just feel like you are part of Sicily. Close to the beaches and a great spot to visit all the other beautiful towns such as Ragusa Ibla, Noto and Siracusa. Please listen to Amalia's recommendations, they are spot on.

We felt right at home. We enjoyed Luca's beautiful art throughout and really felt the apartment was comfortable and cool! It is the perfect juxtaposition of old and new. Luca you did an outstanding job.

PS - thank you for the delicious local treats!

“Everything we wanted - just fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I have travelled all over the world and stayed in some remarkable places at both ends of the spectrum. This was high on the list as a great place to stay - the location was outstanding, the apartment catered for our every need and most importantly gave us a wonderful taste of Sicily - and I imagine we will return - and have certainly told all our friends to go and stay at this wonderful have.

My only suggestion for improvement is that it would be nice to provide a couple of beach towels - other than that perfecto - Grazie to both Amalia for her welcome and knowledge and Luca for the vision

“Unique location, only for the fit!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Absolutely fantastic outlook from this beautifully finished apartment in Modica, about a third of the way up the side of a steep gorge, so lots and lots of steps! It was lovely just to soak up the sounds of the town rising from below and watch the swifts darting back at forth at dusk and dawn, and the lizard and local cats soaking up the sun. A great location for trips to the southern coastline, which is much more inviting than the busy north-east coastline where we had previously stayed. The whole area was dotted with atmospheric towns among stunning countryside. Highly recommended - glad we stayed the extra couple of days.

“A magical place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

Absolutely beautiful accommodation and wonderful welcome from Amalia. We felt at home from the moment we arrived and loved the roof-top views from the balcony and terrace. Modica is enchanting and conveniently located to visit a number of sights. We would definitely recommend this top-quality holiday rental to anyone who wants to explore the south west of Sicily.
