Three reasons why you'll love it here

There are places, like Modica's Case dello Zodiaco, which seem to capture the essence of a city and the spirit of its people.
An "albergo diffuso" or scattered hotel, Case dello Zodiaco is comprised of a number of fascinating stone houses dating back to the 19th century and which, thanks to meticulous restoration, have been transformed into welcoming guest accommodation for travelers seeking a truly unique Sicilian holiday home.
Signs of time
Guests staying in one of Case dello Zodiaco's houses have the perfect opportunity to experience life in the heart of Modica. All five apartments are situated in the historic center, surrounded by the baroque churches, piazzas, alleyways and characteristic curtigli, or courtyards, of this ancient city in the Val di Noto.
Each apartment has conserved its original structure in local stone, made all the more appealing by the careful integration of modern amenities and technology
Three of the houses (Ariete, Gemelli and Cancro) have been designed with disabled guests in mind, and are completely free of architectural barriers. Breakfast and half board meal plans are available on request.
Holidays, made in Modica
Case dello Zodiaco's houses are small period residences featuring a pleasing combination of old world charm and contemporary technology and design.
"Casa Ariete", situated in Via Ciceri, is the largest of the houses and sleeps 8. The "Casa Vergine" and "casa Gemelli" are located close to Via Asmara. The first has a small outdoor area. The second features an ancient bread oven, now used as larder, and a small balcony with view over the roof tops of Modica.
In various locations in the historic center of Modica, all houses have a fully equipped kitchen, living room, and a small library containing the classics of Sicilian literature
The "Casa Bilancia" and "Casa Cancro" occupy part of an 18th century edifice. "Casa Cancro" opens out onto a pretty internal courtyard.
