Io e mia moglie abbiamo trascorso due bellissime settimane immersi nel Barocco siciliano in questo appartamento curato in ogni particolare. Un grazie a Francesca, che con la sua discrezione, ci ha dato informazioni utili sui posti da visitare ed è sempre rimasta presente. Scicli e è un’ottima base per visitare il Barocco Siciliano.

La casa di Francesca si trova nella parte più antica di Scicli, in una zona molto tranquilla e con pochi turisti ma allo stesso tempo distante solo 5-10 minuti a piedi dalla zona con più negozi ed attività commerciali. Quindi direi una combinazione perfetta. La casa, ristrutturata seguendo la tradizione, è dotata di tutti i confort per cui non abbiamo dovuto portare nè comprare nulla. Il terrazzo all’ultimo piano consente di cenare al fresco in un angolo di paradiso. Francesca è stata gentilissima e disponibile con noi e ci ha fornito tante informazioni preziose… Insomma abbiamo trascorso una splendida vacanza e speriamo proprio di tornare presto.

Francesca’s place is absolutely wonderful! It is perfectly situated in exquisite Scicli, a living architectural gem that bursts alive at night and is packed with churches, restaurants, cafe’s, and bars. Beautiful beaches are located a short-drive away (15 minutes), and Modica and Ragusa are not far away. The flat is an old stone building woven into a welcoming neighborhood. Meticulously restored, the flat is airy and cool with nice balcony from which you can watch the colors change of the rocky gorge in which Scicli is nestled. The bed is extremely comfortable and the area quiet at night. Francesca was extremely helpful and understanding when arriving late. I very much look forward to my next visit here! Thank you Francesca!

Pleasant apartment in a quaint section of Scicli. Walking distance to everything you need or desire. Francesca and Luigi welcomed us as family and became our friends. We enjoyed our stay in this baroque town rich in culture and warm people. We made friends with the butcher, the pastry chef and the supermarket owners. Recommend this property and town highly for people looking to live like locals.

Es ist ein sehr gemütliches, schön eingerichtetes Ferienhaus. Auch die Dachterasse ist sehr schön! Sehr zu empfehlen. Die Gastgeber sind sehr herzlich und helfen mit lokalen Informationen.

Wir haben die Zeit in Scicli im Haus von Francesca sehr genossen, waren aber auch viel unterwegs – es ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um die Gegend zu erkunden. Modica, Ragusa und die Küste sind nicht weit allzu entfernt und Scicli selbst eine quirlige, nette und etwas kleinere Stadt. Francesca hat uns einigeTipps gegeben, was noch alles zu entdecken ist: besonders gut hat uns der Besuch des Convents, direkt oberhalb des Hauses gefallen, das aber nur mit einer Führung zu besichtigen ist. Von dort hat man einen tollen Ausblick, die Anlage ist wunderschön.

The apartment is newly renovated, with a modern bath and kitchen enhanced by the original stone walls and arches. A loft bedroom looks out on a sunny, private terrace. We found it the perfect space for a couple, and stayed for 4 nights. The apartment was spotless, and well equipped for the breakfasts and dinners we chose to cook there. It is located close to the city center, but is quiet with plenty of free street parking. Francesca is the perfect host. She greeted us with a bottle of wine and an annotated map of Scicli. She has compiled a large volume of tourist info for the surrounding region, and can offer suggestions for hikes as well as key details about which routes to take to nearby towns and where to park when you arrive there. She responds quickly and cheerfully to queries (like the time we accidentally turned off the power). Scicli is a fascinating place, the smallest of the UNESCO Baroque cities site. Besides the earthquake and its reconstruction, there is a significant social history of efforts in the last 50 years to move part for the citizenry from cave dwellings into other housing. We recommend Francesca, the apartment, and Scicli!
