Description from owner


Hortus, belonging to Anime a Sud collection, is a charming and exclusive Residence, built in a 16th century complex in front of the marvellous cathedral of S. Giorgio, in the heart of Modica, a masterpiece of the baroque Sicily.
The property faces a secluded garden with fruit trees, living and dining area and jacuzzi, where to relax in total privacy.
The three refined rooms, each one with en-suite bathroom, boast local stones (lime stone, lava stone and pitch stone), vaulted ceilings and very comfortable beds with memory-foam mattresses and pillows.
The Acqua Suite features a round bed with tub, the Fuoco Suite features a king-size bed with bio-fireplace, while the Aria Suite, upstairs, is a romantic alcova with normal-size bed that faces a wonderful terrace with view over S. Giorgio cathedral.
The dwelling is also provided with a charming living room and a stylish fully-equipped kitchen with undeground wine cellar.
The private grotto SPA, which will be opening soon, will feature heated pool, steam bath and massage stone bed.
