Baroque style and chocolate match perfectly together and make the irresistible appeal of Modica, a charming city that is 15 km far from Ragusa and that is divided in two expanses: Modica Alta (upper Modica) and Modica Bass a (southern Modica). 

This town, settle down between two valleys and on the Pizzo’s hill, is a harmony of churches, palaces and buildings of the eighteenth century (all built according to the late baroque style) overlooking narrow, tiny streets, squares, and stage-stairways. 

Chocolate has been made in Modica since the 18th century by using a cold-working. When this chocolate is amalgamated with vanilla, cinnamon or hot pepper, it is an irresistible temptation. 

Modica is fascinating due to its past colonizations of Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans and has a lively heart and the  marina at Modica is considered a paradise especialy for people who love surfing and windsurfing.  The beaches of gilt are an incredible sight.  When the sun goes down there are many bars, restaurants and nightly haunts to complete your enjoyment during the hot summer evenings.

Feeling part of the most authentic Sicilian way of being. This is what happens to you when you step over the entrance gate of Villa Trombadore, a patrician dwelling tracing back to end of the nineteenth century. Situated along the road leading to Ispica - in a quiet, sunny but not isolated location - the villa is the perfect starting place to reach centres of art such as Modica, Noto, Syrac use and other splendid baroque small towns you definitely cannot miss. 

This exclusive residence looks on to a well-maintained garden enriched by a collection of Cica palms while at the back extends the large swimming pool surrounded by a solarium-terrace inviting to the utmost relax .

Villa Trombadore reveals its own charm through its kneading-through, wardrobes and cupboards, beds "in the grandmother old style" and ancient pavements made out of Sicilian ceramics…all furnishings d'epoque narrating the history of
the house through a balanced mingle of styles. 

At the ground level the convivial moments pleasantly elapse inbetween the double lounge with fireplace, the dining room and the ceramic covered brickwork kitchen where either the sink made out of local stone and the well supplying drinking-water
particularly stand out.

From the kitchen, then, you gain access to the delicious lateral patio equipped with a table shaded by a grapevine pergola. 

The glamour styles of the ground floor - which has one bathroom - mingle ogether with the styles of the wide four bedrooms (each one endowed with private bathroom) on the first floor and also with those ones of a shared zone set as parlour - which is plunged in the absolute white-hued atmosphere - giving
way to a panoramic small terrace with view on the countryside around.

Besides, Villa Trombadore has a dependence with independent entrance named La Carretteria, autonomously rentable from the mansion house.
