Casa Alchimia Modica, Sicily, Italy
Located above Modica on a very quiet street in the historic center, this home is a unique fusion of past and present and a romantic refuge. Arranged over two floors, the intuitively divided and restored space has preserved the original soul and character of the early twentieth century structure. The main living area is intimate and bright and includes a comfy sitting area, a library and the fully equipped kitchen with breathtaking views from the balcony that give the impression of being suspended over the city. Decorated with locally salvaged antiques, contemporary art and furnishings from around the world, the collection creates a harmonious alchemy of colours and materials against the whitewashed interiors.
The stairs in natural black pece stone lead to the to the romantic en suite double-aspect bedroom that features a private terrace with street views and a mansard roofed area that’s perfect for the little ones. The downstairs en suite bedroom features a custome headboard made of ancient Sicilian polychrome-majolica tiles and includes a private balcony with panoramic views. Enjoy the selection of Sicilian wines on the secluded terrace where you can sunbathe or marvel at the beauty of the evening lights.
Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV, stereo audio system with CDs, art supplies and travel library. Housekeeping, laundry facilities with additional services on request. Free on street parking. Electric bicycle rentals available. Chef service with Sicilian cooking classes available.
You’ll be perched high above the city with spectacular views across the entire historic centre of Modica. A UNESCO treasure, there are plenty of things to enjoy in the city and you are also just a short drive to “sister” cities Ragusa and Scicli, both stunning examples of the greater Val di Noto Baroque settlements. Marina di Modica, Marina di Ragusa and Sampieri beaches are some of the best on the island just a half hour drive.
