“Warm & friendly, beautiful aspect”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Modica is an unfussy, beautiful baroque town, and Casa Orni is the ideal base to explore the town and its environment. The apartment is everything you could wish for with great attention to detail - and the view from the terrace is outstanding. Watching the setting sun reflecting on the cathedral while the swallows whirl (a glass of vino rosso in hand..) became our evening routine, and I can picture it still.
Ornella is a great communicator and made sure everything was set up perfectly for our stay - neighbour Lidia is a star, a wonderful warm lady who made our trip feel special. We visited over Easter and Lidia told us where to go to get the most out of the fesitivites - the 'kiss kiss' ceremony was a wonder to behold. I can heartily recommend Casa Orni to anyone visiting this fascinating region of Sicily.

“Faultless hospitality and beautiful practicality”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Following a 23 hour treno note journey and a frustrating but ultimately successful rush to collect hire car in Syracuse met by Ciara who had found and reserved a free parking space close to the apartment and then shown to Casa Orin where neighbour Lidia had prepared mellanzane parmigiana, fresh spaghetti and a bottle of vine Rossi and water the holiday actually improved on a daily basis.
The apartment has everything you could want without being over fussy or touristy and the view form the balcony is outstanding.
Monica is so pretty with plenty of places to eat well from cheap and cheerful to fine dining.
The variety of specialist food producers and purveyors have left us knowing we'll return - how did we not shop at casa de formaggio !!!!!
Ornella was not there but actually made contact via text several times to check things were ok and has put together a beautiful introduction to get you started on your discovery of the immediate area and beyond.
Always say I'll return to places but never do because I find somewhere better or more quirky however guess the first 2 weeks of or mid September will see us return.
Thank you Ornella, Lidia and Chiara

“Lovely stay at Casa Orni”

Casa Orni in Modica is one of the most beautiful and romantic places I’ve ever stayed, perfectly decorated with attention to every detail, warm welcome and lovely neighbours. With lots of beautiful towns and beaches nearby it’s a very good starting point to explore the south-east parts of the island!

This apartment is filled with lovely little details making our stay very comfortable. Beginning with the nice email contact before we arrived, we were welcomed by nice people, taken care of by a very friendly lady living next door. Equipment is fully sufficient including devices for the iphone, candles and so on. The location with a breathtaking view over Modica is situated very central to explore all the nice sights in Modica. We would return to this place at any time and can recommend it highly.

“Fantastic apartment and host, beautiful view from the balcony”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful apartment right in the heart of Modica. The outstanding highlight is undoubtedly the view from the balcony, which is absolutely breathtaking, and is the perfect backdrop to dinner in the open air. You have a panoramic view of Modica Alta and the stunning Chiesa San Giorgio, with a sizeable space for eating and drinking al fresco. The apartment is very well kept, and although the hostess, Ornella, wasn’t there during our stay, her friend and neighbour Lidia was extremely generous and helpful. Ornella provided us with a wealth of local knowledge, advice and recommendations, and Lidia was always around to help us out with any questions we had.

The apartment is really handily situated near the main part of town, with lots of shops, cafés and restaurants just a short walk from the door. Modica itself is a lovely town, and it’s a great base for visiting the myriad sights and towns in the area.

The decor is very tasteful, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook some locally inspired dishes to enjoy on the balcony. The place was a good size for the two of us, and we didn't want for anything during our stay.

We’d definitely come back here, and we’ll be recommending it to family and friends.
