We stayed here as a couple and two young kids (3 and 8 months) in mid July. The photos do not do the place justice - it is very well presented and the swimming pool area is a fantastic place to spend the day. Giorgio, Antonella and Sofia were very welcoming hosts and went beyond the call of duty cooking us lovely treats for lunch and really looked after us and the boys well - the table football table was very popular. The attention to detail is something else - if you have your own CDs you can play them where you eat, where you swim and even in the toilet by the pool!
Sicily is a beautiful island, you will need a car to explore, you are 20 minutes from the beach and some great day trips and restaurants are close by.
Came back again this year for another great vacation 7 day stay for my 50th , and unbeknown to me a birthday cake was arranged by Gino and his family! ! as always hospitality is second to none ,with a lovely pool area and gardens, we had a party of six with us with room not to be in each others way... Bbq area so you can cook your lunch under the much needed shade ! Thanks for making my Birthday Really special Gino! And thanks to your Lovely wife for for cooking those italian meals x
We stayed in Kempiski house in the last weekend of October. The outdoor is really nice, its a pity we weren't there in Summer to enjoy the pool. It is located just on the outskirts of Modica in a very quite area. There is a great shopping centre 5 minutes away. Very nice hosts, and make you feel very welcome.
On arrival in to Comiso Airport we were greeted by our hosts Gino and Antonella who took there time to come out and drive us to our rental car to pick up. Then we followed them back to there house, and may I say what beautiful grounds it has. Please note, this is not solely private house as the owners live a both basically you are renting the apartment below although this was not a problem for us! as Gino and his family were very friendly, welcoming and invited us on a couple of occasion to dine with them with true Italian dishes. The accommodation was very clean and spacious 2 double bedrooms 1 bathroom, kitchen and the lounge with a partitioned double bed behind a screen. There was no need for towels as these were provided, kettle ,hairdryer and all day to day living facilities were at hand including a washing machine, a car is very advisable to get around, the supermarket was only a 5 minute drive so not a big deal, Gino and his family took us out on a local tour of Modica and also took us out shopping in Regusa, for my teenage daughter that was heaven I cannot stress enough about there Sicilian hospitality. On the down side from our 10 day stay, private pool parties were organised for the local community unbeknown to us this was to celebrate the end of summer and was invaded with large parties on several occasions (AM parties and PM events ) when confronting Gino with this, he has assured me this will never happen again when the house has been accommodated maybe it was an Italian thing? All in all, this was a very enjoyable holiday and I would go back just for the hospitality and as I said in the beginning the grounds to this house is very stunning if you want to see how true Italians live with the siestas taking place everyday across the island then this would be worth a visit. Hope this helps!
P.S. Mt Etna is worth a visit about a 2.5 hr drive.
