A romantic hip hideaway with enchanting views of Modica town with its spectacular Baroque cathedral in southeast Sicily.


Nestled into a rock in the heart of the Val di Noto, CASA BUENDIA looks out out across spectacular baroque scenery in one of the most southern parts of Sicily. Tucked away as it is and just a 10 minutes downhill walk to the centre of Modica, it lies a stone throw from the co-owned Casa TALIA. This boutique hotel is composed of small houses, huddled together like a small oasis in the hillside above the historic centre of the city. Lovingly restored with natural materials typical of the Sicilian tradition. Every one of which is infused with a Mediterranean atmosphere, offering an exquisite journey of sensations and colours from East to West.



Carved into existing rock walls and exuding an ancestral and primitive feel, the house covers two floors with the living area on the upper floor. The cosy living area by the simple and functional kitchenette doubles up as extra bed space with two single beds. The bedroom is on the lower floor and features a spacious shower with soft whitewashed walls. Do bear in mind that no doors separate the open space and the only “bathroom” that spreads out around the double bedroom. This house could effectively sleep 5 but we think it’s perfect for a couple due to its open layout.


A small terrace with a table allows for al fresco dining and wining whilst enjoying marvelous view of Modica. The villa is blessed with a small lush private mediterranean gardens in which guests can eat, relax and watch the world go by or cuddle up in its cool caveside.
