“Beautiful apartment in the heart of baroque Modica”
Reviewed 24 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I BALCONI SUL BAROCCO is the perfect place to stay in Modica; the apartment is spacious, well-equipped and has wonderful views on the town and the surrounding hills. The apartment is ideally situated, just off the main street, Corso Umberto, and is within walking distance of many great bars, cafes and restaurants.
Cristina and Giuseppe gave us a very warm welcome and ensured that we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

“Fabulous Apartment”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Great location within walking distance of all the monuments and close to shops, cafes and restaurants. Just off the main Corso Umberto. Firstly the welcome was so friendly and very comprehensive. Christina and Lorenzo showed how everything worked in the apartment and where we could safely park the car. The apartment has a garage about 200 metres away. The apartment is very spacious with an old world charm. The bedroom was huge with a very modern bathroom. Dining and lounge room lead to a terrace which was great for relaxing with a coffee or wine. The kitchen is compact but has everything including a clothes washer - amazing. We self catered for breakfast and 2 dinners which was lovely. There is nothing you could possibly need that is not provided. Great value, very happy.

“What a welcome!!”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Wow, what a beautiful apartment! We were visiting Modica as a couple with a teenage daughter and had a wonderful stay at this spacious apartment. Lorenzo & Cristina could not have been more welcoming. They spent time showing us where everything was, how the appliances were operated and gave us a map with personal recommendations and nearby towns/sights listed. They explained the parking system, allowed us access to the garage which was situated a short walk away and even left us some home-made sweets, as well as some basic kitchen goods. Even laundry detergent was provided. Their top tip of restaurant (Osteria dei Sapori Perduti) was so good we went there twice. I had a soup (both nights) which is still remembered as my favourite dish in 3 weeks in Italy. The beds were very comfortable (which is not often the case in Europe) and both bedrooms had balconies. Set in the centre of town, it is easy to walk to many cafes and restaurants. Beautifully furnished and although we only needed 2 bedrooms, there were more available for larger groups.

“A great experience.”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Travelling with my wife and adult children for the first time to Sicily we chose to stay somewhere central in the city of Modica and this was certainly it. Stepping out of the apartment it is less than 50 metres to one of the main streets in Modica, Corso Umberto on which are restaurants and other potential attractions. From the apartment we were able to sample Sicilian cuisine and explore the historical parts of the city and region.
The apartment itself was ideal for us with good sized bedrooms and all the usual facilities. We arrived late Friday evening (10:45) and were met by the owner and a friend, who spoke excellent English, they spent time both showing us around the apartment and then explaining various things we might want to explore during our stay. Had we needed to they were easily contactable during our holiday. A real advantage was the availability of the garage, with on street parking a lottery the use of the garage meant the hire car could be safely parked without incurring the added expense of parking charges.
