Ciarìa comes from the Sicilian word for "light or glimmer" and Le Terrazze di Ciaria is charming 2 bedroom house (sleeps 4) located just a a couple of miles from the Mediterranean coast and the beautiful Baroque town of the Val di Noto, Sicily. This secret gem is hidden away in the historical centre of Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a place filled with history and where time seems to stand still. Along the narrow road that leads to this old house with contemporary interiors, soak up the sites and sounds including the Castle of the Counts, the Church of San Pietro and the flight of steps leading up to the front of the Cathedral of San Giorgio. What better way to explore south east Sicily than to have your own place to yourselves in one of the prettiest locations.
To the right and left of the living area there is one large master room with en-suite bathroom and a comfortable double room. The living space and the master bedroom have both access through wide doors to the main terrace. Soft beiges and creams set the tone of the interiors with white, greys and browns all adding to give a sophisticated and chic feel.
Just 200 meters far from Ciarìa there is a free parking area (in front of an ancient convent) completely dedicated to the inhabitants of the quarter and their guests.
Le Terrazze di Ciaria is just a short distance from the sea as well as the wonderful Sicilian baroque town of Modica, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are plenty of areas of Sicily to explore and car rental is essential to make the most of the experience. The Duomo di San Pietro stands proudly at the centre of this historic town and there are few better places from which to view it than Ciaria! Whether you are conjuring up a plate of pasta in the panoramic kitchen, or relaxing on the terrace of this stylishly refurbished apartment, your eyes will constantly be drawn to the mesmerising beauty of Modica.
The main terrace has different seating areas and is the ideal space for al fresco life. At sunset and later at night, with a candle or two, the view across Modica and its twinkling lights is one of the most romantic settings we have come across. The second terrace boasts an outside kitchen with hand painted tiles, perfect for preparing meals during the warmer evenings.
