Summary

Hortus's three suites are set in a desirable property right in the heart of Modica. The rooms overlook the quiet secluded garden, the fruit trees and the super outdoor dining area that is decked out with chic furniture and a table for ten There's also a hydro massage tub for a relaxing soak in total privacy. The three elegant bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, feature local stone, natural limestone flooring and plaster, vaulted ceilings. The beds are divinely comfortable with memory foam mattresses and pillows and they are topped off with antique Sicilian embroidered bed covers. In the Acqua suite there's a round bed with a large lava stone tub behind it. The Fuoco suite has a king size bed with fireplace, while in the top floor Aria suite there's a romantic alcove with double bed and a panoramic view of S Giorgio Cathedral from the terrace.

Property details

Sprucing up is rarely this spectacular. The thrill of the past can still be felt in the refurbished living room-where there are two single sofa beds- and in the super shiny kitchen and dining area for 6. The old underground water tank has been cleverly converted into a wine cellar and in the garden much of the original stone has been left on show alongside the fruit tress. It's the perfect spot for the barbecue and there's loads of space round the table for 10 and in the comfy chic outdoor furniture. Though it feels rather ritzy, its eco-credentials are impeccable. Priority was given to the environment throughout the renovation and the use of sustainable energy, principles of Organic Architecture, ecological materials and local stone have resulted in a contemporary, strikingly individual abode that will take your breath away.

The town of Modica which is a UNESCO World heritage site, is considered the symbol of Sicilian baroque. Modica, however, has much more to offer than its famous Baroque palaces with their intricate facades, monuments and spectacular churches. It's a unique place-a noble, un-hurried yet vibrant town that the traveller can't help falling in love with. It's a visual treat and its narrow alleys are a hub of activity with night clubs and famous restaurants. It's also a paradise for chocolate devotees which is still produced here in the same way as the ancient Aztecs made it in the 16th century. Modica is ideally located in the middle of the Noto Valley, so it’s an ideal base for visiting the other Baroque cities of Ispica, Ragusa Ibla Noto and Scicli. You can’t miss a trip to the Vendicari nature reserve where there are some wonderful beaches and the lakes of Cavagrande with their water falls. A trip to this part of the island wouldn't be complete without seeing the naturalist-archaeological site of Pantalica and the surrounding unspoilt beaches of this stretch of the South-Eastern Sicilian coast.
