Villas and apartments in Ragusa, Modica and south Sicily
Ragusa n the south is an outstanding town; a labyrinth of alleyways, quaint stone houses and baroque palazzi and architecture, which has earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. Its history and culture makes it fascinating but the sight of the town clinging to the hill upon its approach is really quite breath-taking. The beaches near Ragusa are spectacular - it has half the blue flag beaches of Sicily - here you will find golden sand, clear water and clean and uncrowded beaches. Marina di Ragusa is the most popular and lively resort, Sampieri and Marina di Modica are both perfect for families and Modica also offers a bay which is windsurfers' paradise.
Modica in the south is a real hidden gem. Baroque in style, this charming city is only 15 km from Ragusa. The town, located between two valleys and on Pizzo's hill, is a harmony of churches, palaces and buildings of the eighteenth century (all built according to the late baroque style). Think narrow, quaint streets, inspiring domes, squares, and fantastic architecture - its picture postcard perfect! It also boasts a lovely marina and beach.
