Hortus (Latin word for garden) is a sophisticated and private Sicilian Chic Retreat with 3 luxury suites (sleeping 6 adults and 2 children), garden and private grotto spa in the heart of Modica Alta, south east Sicily. Hortus can be found in a 16th-century building next to the cathedral of San Giorgio and is an ideal boutique hotel alternative for couples, friends or families looking for a luxury self-catering base from which to explore Sicily and this UNESCO World Hertage site. Modica is easy to navigate by foot or you can hire an electric bike, but a car hire is advisable if you plan to go further afield, which we thoroughly recommend. Sister Chic Retreat Casa Kimiya' is also a great alternative to a boutique hotel in Modica. The contemporary kitchen and living area is built into the original structure (which dates back to 1554) with exposed stone walls, stone archways and original features. The wine cellar has been created in the underground cistern and can be accessed by a beautifully designed glass and iron staircase. The kitchen table seats 6 and the garden has a summer dining area with a BBQ and small herb garden.
Activities
Relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi, read a book amongst the pomegranate, orange and fig trees or simply enjoy the silence and solitude. Allow time for exploring Modica, with its beautiful barroque architecture and wealth of churches to admire. 
Dining
Hortus is perfect for those who want to be able to cook for themselves. The wine cellar provides guests with several fantastic wines to complete the perfect home cooked meal. Alternatively, Modica has some great restaurants and cafes to try. The town is known for the chocolate it produces, which is reminiscent of the kind the aztecs made.
Why is it chic?
  • Beautiful stone architecture
  • Set in World Hertiage Site Modica
  • Luxury self- catering base
