Chosen by The Times* as an ideal break to book, Villa Sofia is situated at the heart of South-East Sicily, close to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Modica. This fully air conditioned villa combines all the comforts of modern-day living with the authentic charm of a timeless rural setting, just a short stroll away from village shops and restaurants.
Refurbished to the highest standards, this former farmhouse retains many original features, tastefully weaving local materials into a sophisticated, classic design. Mainly open plan, the indoor living area lends itself to easy-living, and connects through large French doors to spacious grounds. These encompass a manicured lawn punctuated by carob trees, a good size spill-over pool and a large covered terrace; enjoy blissful candlelit dinners or lazy morning breakfasts inspired by the views, colors and scents which surround you.
Settlers from all over the Mediterranean have made Sicily their home over the centuries, leaving a profound legacy in the architecture, language and gastronomy of the island. A short drive from Villa Sofia takes you to Modica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is a perfect example of this cultural blend. Make an effort to climb the many steps connecting Modica Bassa (lower town) to Modica Alta (hilltop town) and you will be rewarded by the awesome sight of the baroque Duomo, standing majestically at the centre of the labyrinth of narrow lanes and alleys, which form the ancient Arabic town of Mohac. Whilst here don’t forget to sample the famous chocolate of Modica – a relative of Mexican chocolate – and other mouth-watering specialities. Destinations for day trips may also include the Castle of Donnafugata (one of the film-sets of Inspector Montalbano's TV series), Noto, Lido di Noto's beaches, Siracusa and Agrigento's Vale of temples.
