Boutique Casa Talia offers quirk and character in the baroque town of Modica, Sicily. Casa Talia is a hotel with a difference.

When the owners of Casa Talia left the hurly-burly of Milan, to discover a slower pace of life and a better place to live, they chose Modica and we understand why. It is a fantastic Baroque town, which spreads up two sides of a steep ravine, like layers of a cake. Dramatic and beautiful, its tiers of houses cling to the hillsides and churches dominate the skyline. Known as “the town of a hundred churches” its bells ring the passing of time, but Modica seems not to notice, feeling as if time has stood still somehow. It is a truly wonderful town.

Two extremely clever architects, they set out to create a boutique retreat, a secret hideaway of such. They took humble stone dwellings of the town, in what was once the Jewish Quarter, and they transformed them into an intricate tumble of rooms, steps and pathways, centred on lovely gardens, which form the heart of Casa Talia – a haven of shade and peace, seemingly worlds away from the busy town below. Blessed with olive trees, palms, pomegranates and lovely Mediterranean shrubs, the quirky boutique Casa Talia is utterly charming. Professionally, it must be especially gratifying for Casa Talia’s owners to have been featured in the magazine “Elle Décor Italia” as one of THE places to stay.

Breakfast is served in the Casa Talia’s romantic garden, overlooking those stunning views, or in an amazing indoor room, should weather not permit being outdoors, which has partly been hewn out of the rock. Long Travel guests staying at the boutique Casa Talia are thoroughly spoiled with fruit smoothies, freshly-baked bread and delicious home-made jams and pastries.

Each of Casa Talia’s unique rooms has its own independent entrance, with terrace, overlooking the garden. Most rooms at the boutique Casa Talia have spectacular views of the San Giorgio church and the historical centre, over the multi-layered rooftops of the town. With hints of Modica’s chequered history, rooms have touches of Greek, Arabic and Spanish, but are always distinctly Sicilian, with stone walls, lime plaster, cane roofs and floors of stone and traditionally patterned tiles. Retaining an apparent simplicity, the rooms at Casa Talia are stylish, comfortable and ingeniously designed, with a modern flourish.

Not for the faint-hearted or infirm, apart from the steps to reach the rooms, Casa Talia is a good five-minute walk (ten minutes back!) down narrow alleyways and steep stairways, to Modica’s main street – well worth the effort though and a fascinating “behind the scenes” glimpse of the town.
