DISCOVERING Inspector Montalbano’s Sicily

Apr 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Featured Articles

 

Sicily has proved to be an astonishing movie location throughout time.  Tilm directors have fallen in love with this enchanted island whose charm has also been captured  by  today’s popular TV series  “The Inspector Montalbano” and BBC’s show “Sicily Unpacked”. 

 

Following Montalbano’s traces is an excellent opportunity for all tourists wishing to experience the wonders of Sicily and to discover the beauty of Baroque Architecture.  We offer charming accommodation where to feel comfortable and at ease whilst taking part of the rare and unique setting that only Sicily can grant.

Right in the historical centre of Modica is Casa Modica, a charming house just a stone’s throw away from St George’s Cathedral. Dating back to the 16th century, this beautiful house has been lovingly restored to retain and enhance its architectural features. It is perfectly located for exploring the enchanting surrounding area. From the towns of the Val di Noto, such as Scicli, Ragusa-Ibla, Noto and Syracuse, to the sandy beaches of Pozzallo and Marina di Ragusa, to the archaeological site of Cava d’Ispica and the Vendicari reserve.

For all those wishing to spend a relaxing holiday the ideal solution isTorre del Cozzoverro. Amidst the countryside of Ragusa, this beautiful villa with two swimming pools is surrounded by carob plants, fields of grain, ancient olive, citrus and almond trees. This charming refuge is an authentic Sicilian estate with Arab influences, consisting of a residential building and a watchtower, recently expertly renovated.  

Moving upwards towards the Province of Syracuse, still within the famous “Val di Noto” stands the exclusive Villa Spiga. This residence with swimming pool is sited in the countryside between the UNESCO’s cultural heritage towns of Noto and Palazzolo Acreide. Built according to the local, traditional “baglio” architecture, the villa offers wonderful views of the surrounding, quiet countryside stretching out as far as the eye can see. Recently restored, Villa Spiga offers large, well appointed interior and exterior areas that merge the original, ancient charm of this estate with modern comforts.
