On January 2012 BBC 2 broadcasted a TV series Sicily Unpacked,Episode 2 was filmed right here in Modica,Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli took part of this fascinating journey through Sicily, Andrew and Giorgio explored the legacy of Spain's 500-year occupation of the island and the influence this has had on art and culture.And it's not only art that is experiencing a resurrection on the island but agriculture too: the wine, that only 20 years ago was considered only good enough for blending vats on the continent, is now one of the most fashionable in Europe and is being exported all over the world.
Now you if long to explore the real Sicily , then Villa Modica is the right place to start.

Villa Modica is set in the warm and timeless landscape of south eastern Sicily, one of the beautiful and suggestive parts of the region, on the foot-hills of the enchanting town of Modica. From the Villa's private swimming pool, views extend over hills and valleys capped by the steeples of Baroque Modica - a UNESCO world heritage site, just a scant mile away. The garden, with its succulent fruit trees and the scent of jasmine, is a peaceful and picturesque setting for guests to enjoy the Sicilians' way of life. Dining by the pool, where there is a barbeque and furnished Gazebo, makes the perfect setting to enjoy the "alfresco experince".
The Villa's location offers total privacy to enjoy a relaxing holiday. So, if you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the perfect choice. But, at the same time, the Villa is a strategic point: this part of Sicily has an abundance of art, archaeology, history, breathtaking scenery and of course wonderful food to offer. You will certainly be inspired by the brilliance and beauty of the town, by the stunning, secluded beaches, tranquil vineyards, ancient olive groves. And you can also explore Mount Etna, the greatest vulcano of Europe, Catania, a splendid city lying between Etna and the Ionian Sea, Syracuse, with its temples, its Greek Theatre and Roman Amphitheatre, and its Ear of Dionysius, Ragusa, with its traces of human settlements dating from as early as the 3rd millenium BC.
Or, if you prefer something really breathtaking, why not go to Agrigento and see the Valley of the Temples?
Anyway, the list of wonders that are waiting for you is too long to be written here.
But Villa Modica is a perfect choice even if you just decide to indulge your senses spending lazy afternoons, tasting excellent food or maybe re-creating a local original recipe in your own.
