Modica - South-east of Sicily



Meravilla is an exclusive villa with private swimming pool situated halfway between Modica and Scicli, late baroque towns of the Noto Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage. Set in a quiet, sunny, panoramic location, the property is surrounded by a luxuriant garden with aromatic and ornamental plants and offers large terraces and a stunning heated saltwater pool. These well-equipped outdoor areas are complemented by its cosy interior, which includes a large living room with kitchen, sitting and dining area, four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a wellness area with sauna, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi and multi-sensory shower.

    Dear Carmelo, Anita and family, We enjoyed a blissed August in your stunning home and your breathtaking beautiful country. Thank you for welcoming us and for making our stay so comfortable. You have created such an oasis here. We’re taking home precious memories of our children learning to swim in the pool, our son learning to walk on the luscious lawn, our daughter picking blackbernies and dayses at the sunset and insisting that we smell the glorious jasmine every time we came and went out the house. We very much hope to return soon. We wish you all the best for the future and send you our warmest regards. Georgina and Simon

    Dear Anita, Carmelo e Piera, thank you for your hospitality and the possibility to stay in such a lovely house. We really loved everything about it! We will remember the amazing views, the great food, the lovely town of Modica. The kids having the time of their life in the pool and the Jacuzzi, the lovely nights with a nice glass of wine. But we will certainly remember you! Thank you for all the help and support when my husband wasn’t feeling well and had to go to the hospital. We are so grateful! Hope to see you again. Love, Inge, Micheal, Juliette, Elise and Leon

    Grazie di cuore per aver reso la nostra vacanza indimenticabile! Fin dall’accoglienza del prezioso Raimondo abbiamo percepito la magia di questo posto. I proprietari hanno creato un angolo di paradiso dove ogni singolo dettaglio trasmette il loro amore per questa casa. Non dimenticherò mai le giornate che iniziavano con una passeggiata a piedi scalzi nello splendido giardino lasciandomi inebriare da profumi, colori, silenzio… E che dire del bagno in piscina con acqua salata e riscaldata, guardando la bellezza della campagna modicana? Al tramonto il cielo si tinge di colori che sembra di guardare un pastello di Guccione. Tutto ci ha fatto sentire a casa… sereni… felici! Un unico difetto… si sta così bene che non si ha voglia di uscire!!

    Grazie per averci ospitato nel vostro mondo ricco di semplicità, di spontaneità e soprattutto ricco di una cosa ormai rara al giorno d’oggi: l’amicizia… tenetevela stretta… Grazie di cuore

    Si dice spesso che in vacanza il massimo è sentirsi come a casa propria. Ma a Meravilla si va oltre. La cura e l’umanità dei proprietari che si apprezzano ogni giorno, superano l’immaginazione dell’ospite. Il momento della partenza diventa perciò l’occasione per programmare il ritorno: nella stessa terra, nello stesso posto, con gli stessi padroni di casa. A presto!

  • Ms. Lucy , UK

    Wow. What an extraordinary villa! Thank you so much for sharing it with us, we felt truly blessed. We enjoyed the immaculate villa, stunning views and garden and of course pool so much! And how beautiful is Sicily? Such stunning towns all around. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

    January 2022

    Thank you very much for renting a part of your beautiful house to us. We enjoyed to spend this Christmas and all year’s night on Sicily. The lights, the warmth and the gentle people gave us a wonderful winter break from the darkness and cold European north, where we live. We do already think that we will spend our next winter again on this amazing island.

    Grazie al vostro sito abbiamo trovato ad attenderci non solo una villa meravigliosa, (Villa Meravilla per noi il top!) ancor più i proprietari, ai quali vorremmo ringraziare con un nostro pensiero: Modica - Mercoledì 26 agosto Ultime ore prima del rientro a Milano Ci piange il cuore lasciare villa Meravilla, 15 giorni trascorsi nell incantevole dimora pulita attrezzata e curata nei minimi dettagli. Ci siamo sentiti come a casa, Che dire poi della stupenda piscina con acqua salata e di tutta la folta vegetazione circostante....meravilla...di nome e di fatto. non possiamo evitare di lasciarvi un ricordo scritto anche da parte nostra per ringraziare Voi, e tutti i vostri collaboratori. Essere stati vostri ospiti? Un enorme piacere! Sentirsi accolti come nella propria famiglia, se non persino meglio, non è cosa frequente. La vostra disponibilità nel venire incontro ad ogni nostra esigenza e, la vostra cordialità, la cortesia nei modi e l’affetto reale con cui ci avete aperto le porte della vostra meravigliosa struttura non sono fattori da dare per scontato. Stiamo per lasciare un luogo magico, una perla, una nicchia incantata. quando si lascia Modica dopo essere stati vostri ospiti si è ancora più tristi, perché si lasciano le coccole, le bontà e la bellezza che offrite a chi ha l’onore di alloggiare presso di voi. Grazie per l’esperienza unica e impareggiabile che ci avete offerto. Torneremo !!! recensirvi oltre a quanto lasceremo impresso nel vostro diario saranno le famose 5 stelle plus!!! Il meglio del meglio assolutamente da consigliare! Feedback da 10 con lode!!
