Located in the exotic landscape just outside of the Baroque town of Modica is the lovely 18th Century Villa San Filippo. Imagine a truly noble mansion with beautiful architectural features, mixed with a sense of tranquillity and unspoilt nature.
The property has always been inhabited and exposed to creativity from many noble families over the years. Each room has its own character in terms of decor and design and whilst you wouldn't describe it as luxury as such, it certainly has a noble feel to it.
The villa's grounds contain century old palms and trees, and a lovely swimming pool with an accompanying sun terrace. The pool has a special oblong shape and is worth a dip. Among the trees you will find many beautiful cosy corners with tables and chairs where you can enjoy the good weather and a nice glass of the local wine. Upon prior agreement with Michele, Muni or Anna Maria, one can taste the family cooking and possibly even participate in the actual cooking!
