“sheer bliss”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

Wonderful hosts who thought of everything we needed before we knew we needed it. A beautiful and sympathetic renovation of a traditional house and walled garden in an island where different cultures have come and gone over the centuries. Sit under the shade of the pomegranite trees in the garden, close your eyes and you will be transported to a place of peace and contentment. Modica, clinging to the sides of a steep gorge with it's cross between faded grandeur and modernity is a delight to stroll through and a photographers dream. Sitting in the street eating chocolate and brioche for breakfast and icecream for lunch, or excursions out to the many places of interest make the holiday fly past. Sicily is Sicily and very difficult to leave.

“Perfect stay in Modica”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

The time passed away very (too) fast. We are back in Germany, but our minds are still in Modica... We enjoyed the peacefull Location, the old Houses of Modica, the view from the patio at St. George or simply the wonderful arranged garden. We saw pictures from the first Moments of the renovation and have to congratulate you for your vision how to develop this old House to such an unique villa. We want to thank you for these great Moments we had in Sicilia. And - of course - don´t want to forget to mention, that amelia was a very, very kindly Person, who helps us all the time...

“A beautiful tranquil retreat hiding behind the most amazing cath”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2014

We were lucky enough to be some of the first guests to stay at Hortus and from the moment we walked through the very understated (but very stylish) gate, to the moment we left we were completely blown away with Hortus. The thought and care that had gone into each and every detail of the property from the different themed bedrooms, the antique linen, the ultra modern kitchen to the fantastic garden with it's orange and pomengranate trees, was incredible. Hortus mixes the old with the new beautfully. Luca and Paulo have done an incredible job with renovation and have incorporated many of Sicily's natural features, beauty and materials into the property: the huge garden table and sink, the specially commissioned hand basins in the bathrooms, the spiral staircase to wine cellar, the indoor spa, the plunge pool.. I could go on, but you need to discover it's charm and secrets for yourself! If that isn't enough to tempt you, the lovely amalia is on hand to make sure that you are looked after. Nothing is too much trouble from booking private cars, tours, recommending restaurants, hair appointments - whatever you want to do, Amalia will help if she can - She treats you as if you were a guest staying in her home. Add to that the fact that you are in one of the most stunning locations in Sicily, the shops, cafe's, bars and holidaying amongst some of the most friendly people I've ever met and you've got a holiday that is very difficult to beat. In short, it's a stunning holiday property that will always shine very brightly in our memory and keep us coming back to Sicily and the wonderful city of Modica time and time again. Bravo!
