What you will love about this home

Grotta Bassa is an enchanting flat that has been completely renovated with all new amenities, including plumbing, electrical, mechanical systems, new appliances,washing machine and furniture. In 2019 we expanded the property, adding a second bedroom, second bathroom, dining area and a rooftop terrace. It was restored to maximize traditional local features, including enhancing the original sandstone cave (grotta) walls. Before the renovation, it was one larger home, and was converted into two self-contained flats. If you need more space, the other flat (Grotta Alta) may be available. Click the link below to our website for more information on the flat. Feel free to contact us. Modica is spread over the sides of two valleys, where two rivers merge into a wide rocky gorge. A flood in 1902 led to the rivers being covered over through the town, now forming the main roads. During medieval times, many of the homes were carved from the sandstone, into caves (grottas) overlooking the rivers. The labyrinth of streets climb up the gorges where over 100 baroque churches are interspersed with cobbled lanes, ancient steps, and fine nobles’ houses. The area’s delicate blend of history, nature, and the sea has contributed to its rich gastronomical delights, including fresh produce year round, local specialty recipes for chocolate, wine, olive oil, meat dishes, fish, ricotta cheese, and pastries. A new airport recently opened to International flights in the nearby city of Comiso (30 kilometers). Ryanair, an inexpensive airline in Europe has opened a major hub there. Other airlines are planning flights as well. For more, click on 'Please click here to view more information' at the very bottom of this page. Surrounding Area: Modica is perfectly positioned for use as a “home base”, to explore this City, and nearby Cities, beaches, and areas of interest. The area is known for its excellent year round climate, rich cultural and historical attributes, baroque architecture, outstanding traditional Sicilian gastronomy (wine and food), friendly local people, and affordability. This City of 50,000 is ideally positioned to tour and visit Sicily. By car, it is within minutes of award winning Mediterranean beaches, and within a 40-mile radius of five UNESCO World Heritage cities (Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, and Siracusa).
