Villa Petra is an amazing property with heated pool located in a unique position, close to the historic center of the city of Modica.

The property is spread over several levels.
The ground floor consists of a single room that houses a double bed, a sofa and a kitchenette. There are also a laundry room, a bathroom with shower and an elevator that allows you to easily reach the first floor. On request it is possible to add an extra bed. The environment is clean and minimalist but made special by the ceiling with the exposed rock.

The upper floor, which houses the main house, can be reached via stone stairs that lead directly to the outdoor area, the fulcrum of the villa, with kitchen, pergola, dining area and a small pool (3x2), almost set in the rock which, if necessary, can be heated.
Here too, the interior is modern and minimalist, with custom-made furniture and light points that highlight and perfectly illuminate all the rooms.
The living area consists of a kitchen-living room with sofa bed and a bathroom with shower carved into the stone.
The living room opens onto a splendid terrace from which it is possible to admire a wonderful glimpse of Modica Alta and the Cathedral of San Giorgio.

The stairs, behind the kitchen, lead to the master bedroom with walk-in closet and large windows overlooking the living room.

Villa Petra is a unique gem of its kind.
Its position allows you to move easily on foot to discover the historic center of Modica or to reach bars and restaurants. At the same time the privacy of the guests is totally guaranteed by the thick vegetation, to which an almost maniacal care is dedicated, which surrounds and overlooks the villa itself.

The villa is the perfect retreat for those looking for an intimate and romantic place without, however, giving up the comforts of city life.

Electricity included up to 250 kWh / week. For any extra consumption, € 0.40 / kWh will be calculated.
Tourist tax to be paid before arrival

Overall ok by S. Kessler - Germany [August 2023 - AirBnB]

Overall not bad experience, yet there were some things that others should know prior to booking that we felt were not clear enough in the description. The good: + Check-in went very smooth & easily + Walking distance to Modica city center + Extremely clean + Welcome fruits/ pasta / cookies was very thoughtful & a nice touch + Very well equipped kitchen + Outside sitting area was lovely + Parking What we felt were negative points for us personally: - 'house' is actually 2 separate apartments that were only connected with a scary elevator that was used for luggage. Otherwise have to go outside the 'house' and walk steep steps to get to the top apartment. - There is a huge hotel & gas-station directly in-front that really ruined the view & hotel guests could look directly in. - Pool was really just a small plunge pool - Bottom bedroom/apartment really dark & everyone could look inside - Bottom bedroom felt damp despite dehumidifier. Overall ok, but in our opinion too expensive.

Beautiful place by A. Hutchinson - Australia [July 2023 - AirBnB]

Beautiful place in a great location to explore Modica by foot.

Very friendly and beautiful home by G. Lazarus - USA [July 2023 - AirBnB]

Very friendly and beautiful home. Would definitely recommend!

Very cool place and very modern by K. Connell - United Kingdom [June 2023 - AirBnB]

We stayed for 6 nights in Villa Petra. Our assessment: Pros: Francesca at IsulaTravel (host agent) super communicative, responsive, and helpful throughout. Great host to work with! Owners responsive too. Design of the villa is awesome. Very cool place and very modern. Pool is great. Location (proximity to Modica Basso) is perfect. All of the restaurants and shops are right down the street. Plus, a supermarket is literally 200 meters away. Cons: Location (environment around the villa) not so great. It’s located across from a hotel and a gas station on a moderately busy street. So the view TOWARD the villa and it’s pool and cliff are amazing but the view FROM the villa not so good. The upper two floors do not have dehumidifiers and are chronically humid / moist.

Wonderful stay in Modica by J. Terblanche - USA [June 2023 - AirBnB]

We had a wonderful stay in Modica. The place was exactly as described and was within walkable distance to a bunch of great restaurants. We had breakfast outside every day and the splash pool was perfect to cool off in after long beach days. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
