Chiara, Giovanni & friends (UK)

Classy classic and overwhelming cool…..
Thank you for the gorgeous experience, complete with beautiful views over the baroque beauty of Modica and ecological fittings that give back to the planet.

Pamela & Peter, Sally & June (Nottingham, UK)

What a wonderful vacation rental…beautiful! We loved having meals in the kitchen/living room with the doors open to that amazing view! We expecially appreciated having the wines to choose from three great producers. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Stephen, Ruth & Chris (Nottingham, UK)

Wonderful holiday, so relaxing, beautiful views from every window. I was like being on a film set, very special thank you to Luca & Amalia. Modica has become very close to our hearts, the people, the spirit, the gorgeous location.

Michico, Atsushi and Ikuko (Japan)

Absolutely relaxing and wonderful villa to spend our summer holidays. Fish from the sea cost was also fantastic! Thanks a mil!.

Tone (Norway)

Thanks for a beautiful house, beautiful town and buildings! Very good food here, healthy! We like to come back. 4 Norwegians.

Marg, Lin, Jen & Natasha (Australia)

A wonderful house in a spectacular town, a great experience for four australian visitors!

Reatha, Richard and Susanna (USA)

A unique and beautiful space – one of the highlights of our sicilian adventure. We enjoyed the light inside and out, day and night. Modica is fun to explore, we encountered wonderful people in the shops, restaurants, on the bus. Truly a rare experience which we will recall fondly. P.s. Thanks Amalia, for orienting us so well!

Johanna & Jyrki (Helsinki, Finland)

Your hospitality and lovely apartment made it possible to enjoy Sicily 100%.

Sonia & friends (Catania, IT)

“Una casa non deve essere mai su una collina o su qualsiasi altra casa. Deve essere della collina, appartenerle, in modo tale che collina e casa possano vivere insieme, ciascuna delle due più felice per merito dell’altra” ( F. L. Wright). Grazie per la bellezza ed il calore di questa casa, siamo stati molto bene, con la speranza di ritornare prima o poi….

Bonnie & Stephen (Larchmont, NY, USA)

We frequently rent apartments and houses when we travel and they are not always as advertised. Anime a Sud was even better than advertised. We had never had such warm and informative welcome as Amalia gave us. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and warmth. Thank you.

Marion & Sjef (The Netherland)

We had a wonderful stay here at Anime a Sud. Two weeks is actually too short to see al the interesting places in SE Sicily. The house and Modica are great! We enjoyed the things Amalia advised us to do like: cooking class; the walk with Kalura; Vendicari; Noto Antica, etc. Thank you for all!

Philippe & Laurence (Paris, France)

Cara Amalia, Caro Luca, quale è il ruolo dell’anima? Dare energia al corpo che fa vivere i 5 sensi:
- il gusto del cannolo fatto al momento, e il fruttato del Frappato e la potenza del Nero D’Avola.
- la vista sui campi di fiori dell’estate di S. Martino, sul presepe di Modica la notte, e sui quadri di Luca
- l’odore del finocchio selvatico e del gelsomino sulla scala di S. Giorgio
- il suono allegro delle campane di S. Giorgio la mattina, Enrico Rava e J. S. Bach la sera
- il tocco del calcestruzzo resinato, della pece nera della cucina e delle scale, e del letto di sopra.
Ma non dobbiamo dimenticare anche il ruolo dell’anima, che è dare energia allo spirito: l’elevazione barocca della facciata di S. Giorgio e delle sue scalinate, il labirinto di Donnafugata, il gusto della nostra vita. A presto allora, e ancora grazie ad Amalia per tutto!

Richard & Jane (Victoria, Australia)

For those lucky travelers who have a holiday at Anime a Sud and Modica ahead of them. Amalia provides the best welcome we have ever had, and it’s our age that is saying a lot! Thank you for all your suggestions about restaurants, shopping and places to visit. This provided the framework for us to plan an interesting, varied and typical sicilian experience.

Emily & Orla (Dublin, Ireland)

Luca, you have an absolute fantastic place here in Anime a Sud. Very stylish interior with lots of art to admire. It was to put on some of your tunes and sit on the balcony admiring the view, a glass of white wine in hand.

Ron & Sharon (Toronto, Canada), John & Miriam (Atlanta, USA)

A wonderful stay and very nice accommodation for two couples. We enjoyed the house and the surrounding neighborhoods. Fresh bread from the market every morning was a special treat. For people who love to cook, we found the kitchen very well equipped.
We appreciated all the information about Modica and the surrounding areas as well the recommendations for local restaurants.

Susan & Jeff (North Carolina, US)

All has been said in this journal, all true and perhaps even a bit understated.
You can stay in Modica/Noto/Ragusa and enjoy the people and you can sunbathe – Donnalucata, Marina di Ragusa were wonderful – but sitting on the balcony, watching the evening or the morning approach is really worth the trip.

Charlie & Cathy (Escondido, California US)

Behind an unassuming door our first impression of Anime a Sud was wow! what a beautiful and welcoming place to stay with all comforts of home. Love the decor and contrast of old and new.
Beautiful art Luca, you are so talented. Amalia, thank you so much for all the wonderful help and suggestions of things to do and see. The cooking class at Modicarte was fantastic, wonderful people, wonderful food, and we brought food back for later.
The trip to the chocolate laboratory was a very special treat especially with your children and their friends. The fruit, chocolate and cookies when we arrived were wonderful! Hope to be back someday

Katherine (London, UK)

Wow, what a view!, you could never tire of this view! We have enjoyed looking out on the sunny mornings and the twinklings lights of dusk. We have eaten in all the restaurants. Amalia recommended and they were all perfect.

Nadia ed Emilio (Milano, IT)

Una bella vacanza rilassante e piacevole in una splendida casa con un’altrettanto bella vista panoramica…in attesa di Marco e Alessia

Marta e Pietro, Isabella e Paolo (Lodi, Italia)

Una fantastica esperienza in una città dove si respira l’atmosfera di una “Sicilia autentica”.
Un magnifico soggiorno in una casa accogliente e curata nei dettagli. Ringraziamo Amalia per i preziosi consigli e la disponibilità.

Elaine & Dimo (Vancouver, British Columbia Canada)

We had a wonderful stay in Modica and loved the house. Anime a Sud felt very much like home for Dimo and I. We certainly enjoyed the beautiful art – very talented!
The view from the rooftop terrace- glass of wine in hand – is something I will always remember. Very elegant! Special thanks to Amalia for organizing our cooking class! Highly recommended – but make sure you are very hungry! Anime a Sud is unique and I think that it has been one of my favorite places to stay.
Best wishes for continued success!

Anneke & Rick (Holland)

We had a wonderful time in Modica. Anime a Sud is a pearl in Modica alta.
The house is so perfect with great details and a perfect view over the city. Sicily is a nice place to stay and we will be back sometime. Thanks for letting us stay in the house, nice regards

Willem & family (Pretoria, South Africa)

We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful apartament! The view, the neighbours and the restaurants – everything is perfectly splendid. The weather was superb and there is so much to see and experience in Modica! Thank you for your hospitality and friendliness!

Lotte & Nicolas (Oslo, Norway)

Anime a Sud is the biggest surprise on our exploring honeymoon in Sicily so far! We have only stayed here for two days, but have promised to come back next summer, we enjoyed so much! Beautiful flat and a lovely city!
Thanks a lot for your warm welcoming Amalia!

Brad & Beth (San Francisco, CA, USA)

Anime a Sud is a dream, and Luca & Amalia are the best!! We enjoyed every minute here & the Val di Noto. Hope to return soon & see Luca’s new project.

Katie, Lou, Rigo, and Piero (San Diego, CA, USA)

The aprtament is lovely and we setted in immediately. We enjoyed Modica, even the 350 stairsteps up from Corso Umberto. Fireworks were an unexpected delight.
The views are amazing and the decor was perfect-art and comfort in the most pleasing union.
How ironic that Luca turns out to be a friend of our cousin Nella. Small world!

Franco e Rosita (Torino)

Il piacere dell’accoglienza (grazie Amalia)
Il piacere del panorama (grazie Modica)
Il piacere dei sapori e dei profumi (grazie Sicilia)
Tre giorni Bellissimi in un appartamento stupendo, in una terra fantastica.
Grazie di tutto e arrivederci a presto

Lee, Jean+Cindy (Santa Barbara, CA, USA)

We loved everything in the wonderful home, it is peaceful + the views are the best.

Eric & Olivia (Ottawa, Canada)

After a few days of thundery weather and getting used to the Italian style of driving! we had a magnificent stay. Modica is beautiful and the people are so friendly…
Looking foward to our return to Sicily. Take care and All the best!!

Hunbe + Stephanie (Hamburg, Germany)

We’ve found one of the nicest places in the world where we like to come back. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to do! Looking foward to our return to Sicily. Take care and All the best!!

Mukta & friends (USA & Israel)

We had an amazing stay in Anime a Sud. The place was a charming and superbly located base for our travels in Sicily. Amalia is an excellent hostess, thanks so much for the chocolate and pastries. The artwork and tasteful style and set up of the apartment decora added for our charming stay. We were able to see Noto, Ortigia, Modica, and a couple of beaches during out brief stay. We recommend La Gazza Ladra for a Michelin 2 star meal – delicious!

Tim+Anne (Edmounth, Canada)

Our stay in Modica has been too brief! Wish we could stay a few more nights but we fly back to Naples tomorrow. We did manage to see many of the sights in this area (Ragusa,
Agrigento, Villa Romana, Ortigia & Noto) but the highlight was watching the fireworks display for the San Giorgio festival from the rooftop terrace, spectacular.
Anime a Sud has provided the perfect base for our time here in the south and we depart with very fond memories of the people of Modica, the food (including the best chocolate
gelato I’ve ever tasted), the wine and the town itself. We couldn’t have asked for a more.Thanks!

Susanne & Mathias (Vienna, Austria)

After a week of mixed weather, it is time to say farewell to Modica while the sun is shining on the terrace. We came to explore the surroundings by bicycle, and found the most beautiful spots in the hinterland, heading for Palazzolo Acreide via S. Giacomo. Modica itself, with its profumi and “slow” lifestyle, the beauty of the city as well as Anime a Sud in all its style and comforts made our vacation very special. Mille grazie per tutto !!

Peter, Minna & Daniel (Helsinki, Finland)

Thanks for the lovely house with the unforgettable views and the lovely artwork all over

Marcus & Uta (Bruxelles, Belgium)

Dear Amalia, dear Luca
once again we enjoyed our time in Anime a Sud, such a beautiful place to stay!
Thank you so much for making us feel at home here in Modica – for the birghtness, the warmth and the good spirit of the house, and for your openminded attitude towards your guests.
Danke, mille grazie! We will come back again!

Yasmin & Oded (Tel Aviv, Israel)

There is no doubt that this is one of the most beautiful apartments we’ve ever seen…
The thought of every detail really made our experience in Modica unique and special.
Of course the spectacular scenary and view from Anime a Sud is from the kind we’ll never forget.
Since we are the first guests from Israel, we will definetely going to recommend this gorgeous spot. Arrivederci!

Richard & Rose, Pete&Karen (Chicago, USA)

Thank you Luca and Amalia for your warm hospitality and the lovely accomodation for our stay in Sicily. We really loved the apartment, although the stairs were a challenge at first, eventually it became easier, and necessary exercise considering the amount of food we’ve eaten. We truly enjoyed our day with your professional guide Barbara on our tour of Ragusa, and the winery was wonderful too. This was the 2nd time in Sicily but was definetely more memorable. Sicily is a very beautiful place and we hope to visit again someday.
Arrivederci and e mille grazie!

Caren & Karsten (Germania)

Thank you very much for the warm welcome at the apartment, everything was prepared so nicely. We enjoyed the “dulces” buiscuits!
Luca, we liked your interior style of the flat and of course your art. We had a very relaxing time on your roof top terrasse and couldn’t get enough of the phantastic view.
Thank’s a lot dear Amalia&Luca

Elena e Tiziano (Milano, IT)

Meno male che ci sono persone che, come lei, hanno qualcosa dentro da comunicare e lo sanno fare con grazia e ricercatezza.
Grazie per questa bellissima parentesi!

Carmen, Ivan & Ivan Jr (Madrid, Espana)

Everything was perfect. We stayed here for 4 nights during our honeymoon and enjoyed very much both the city and the apartment.
We promise to come back! Thank you very much Amalia and Luca.

Mara, Pietro e Margherita (Palermo, IT)

Noi Bica siamo abituati a viaggiare con una certa frequenza. Abbiamo un “fiuto” particolare per i posti belli, accolgienti e confortevoli. Anime a Sud è stato amore a prima vista già dal sito web. In questi due giorni di vacanza abbiamoapprezzato il calore e la professionalità di Luca ed Amalia. Ci vedremo prestissimo.

Stefano, Patrizia e Riccardo (Como)

Cari Amalia e Luca, abbiamo apprezzato molto la vostra sincera ospitalità, la casa èmolto bella e ricercata, in ogni piccolo particolare. Modica è incantevole.L’idea di avere un approccio “eco-art” non solo è innovativo ma anche molto al passo con i tempi. La sostenibilità diventerà sempre più uno stile di vita diffuso e condiviso ed iniziative come la vostra contribuiscono a creare una comunità d persone “rispettose dell’uomo e dell’ambiente”: bravi, continuate così! Un caro abbraccio e a presto

Rachel, Richard, Alice & Beatrice (Adelaide, South Australia)

Modica è una bella città…that’s about what my Italian runs out! And Anime a Sud is the perfect compact authentic and sophisticated place to see it from. Every morning after we wake I have pinched myself to see if it is a dream.Our family of four – two girls, Alice (19)+ Beatrice (15), have truly enjoyed + appreciated this thoughtful beautiful accommodation.One day perhaps we will return to experience it in summer…the light must be amazing then too. And every morning I have sat on the sunny balcony to draw the impossibly beautiful view…

Louise, Kenneth, Lawrence & Raphael (Malta)

We had a wonderful time in Modica. Enjoyed the beautiful scenary, the good food and this lovely house. Thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable, the kids loved the house too, especially their small room. Thanks once again

Ana & Ruben (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Espana)

Queridos Amalia y Luca,Estamos muy agradecidos por vuesta hospitalidad y recibimiento (Amalia desde aquì, esperando horas hasta nuestra llegada tras un largo viaje desde Trapani, y Luca desde la distancia…). La casa, “nuestra casa de Modica”, es una de las màs bonitas y acogedoras en las que hemos estado nunca.
Y Modica,la ciudad que màs nos ha gustado de Sicilia. Nos llevamos a nuestra isla ideas originales de decoraciòn (què estilo tan fantàstico le ha imprimido a la casa!) y la paz y luminosidad de la casa, y dejamos una parte de nuestro corazòn (nuestras “anime”) aquì en el “Sud”, y un “sacco” de gracias por abernos facilitado esto.
Grazie, grazie, grazie. We wish next Anime a Sud visitors such a wonderful time as we had lived here. Enjoy la Dolce Vita very much! a presto!

Brian & Ellen (Washington D.C., USA)

Thank you for your lovely home in Modica Alta. We enjoyed our visit very much. The house is very comfortable, the people are very friendly and all in all it was a very relaxing visit. We traced Salvo’s haunts even to his house in Punta Secca. It was fun to see where the film crew stopped in Modica, Ragusa and the countryside between.
Thank you for a wonderful time.

Patrizia (Tortolì, www.lestanzedipatika.it), Stefania (Garda), Paola, Massimo & Federico (Como)

Ogni viaggio e ogni luogo è accompagnato da immaginazioni e aspettative. Conoscendomi e avendo conosciuto Luca, le mie erano piuttosto alte; questo posto magicole ha davvero superate tutte. Nulla è lasciato al caso tranne le emozioni dell’arrivo e la malinconia della partenza. Bravo Luca e complimenti per l’esempio di grande professionalità e passinalità.
Da collega a collega posso aggingere che di Anime a Sud c’è davvero tanto tanto bisogno!!
Un grazie particolare ad Amalia, senza la quale l’accoglienza, i premurosi riguardi e la squisita ospitalità non sarebbero altrettanto “originali” e ricercati. Buon lavoro e un arrivederci a presto.

David& Elisabeth (Albany, Western Australia)

Dear Amalia & Luca, a beautiful space created in a delightful enviroment. It nourished body, mind & spirit! Grazie mille! tanti auguri!

Eibhlin (London, UK)

Luca, Amalia, we have had a most wonderful holiday! The apartment is an absolute jewel !! Everything about it has a style! The style matched by a great website, a warm welcome, great instructions as to how to use everything as well as advice on places to explore! The local people are generous in their welcome, and the food and the wine are superb! What a joy!! Many, many thanks

Lou, Lee+Sophie, 4 months (London, UK)

Dear Amalia +Luca
Just a note to say what a wonderful stay we had in your beautiful home. Modica is lovely, we had some fantastic days and have eaten like kings, queens and princesses! We love your taste in interior design and have had a very memorable time here.
Thanks again

Darja+Roman (Hamburg, Germany)

Dear Amalia+Luca, from the first until the last day it was a wonderful stay in your beautiful apartment. We enjoyed your welcome-presents at a romantic evening on the nice, little balcony. Modica is a very nice and lovely town and we enjoyed the late summer in Sicilia very much! Thank you for everything.

Brynjar and Eyglo (Reykjavík, Iceland)

Dear Luca ad Amalia, we’ve had a wonderful time in this beatuful apartament in the magical Modica. We’ve enjoyed our time in Sicily to the fullest, relaxed at the beach at Marina di Ragusa, looked at archeological remains in Syracusa and walked through the castle at Donnafugata. Of course, we have also explored Modica itself, walked thousands of stairs, which is just as well because we also had plenty to eat. Thank you for your warm welcome. We are honored to be your first honeymoon guests from Iceland. We will spread the word about the wonders of Sicily and this little gem and hope to return some day.

Gianni, Paola, Riccardo e Arianna (Como, Italia)

Una casa (perche’ cosi ci siamo sentiti qui: a casa) degna di questa splendida ed ospitale terra. Svegliarsi la mattina, aprire le finestre e lasciare che il sole e la luce inondassero la casa è stato il primo dei piaceri delle nostre giornate passate a scoprire angoli, colori, profumi e sapori di quest’angolo di mondo.

Bob & Elaine (Rugby, UK)

“A most welcoming and comfortable house. Thank you for the lovely welcome biscuits & chocolate. This has been a good base to explore the surrounding towns. Steps to town will keep you fit – so eat as much pasta as you wish! We’ve had a lovely holiday in Sicily and return home refreshed and better”

Elodie, Carlota & Olivier (Tolouse, France)

“Nous avons passé un séjour delicieux et découvrir le baroque sicilien. Modica est une ville magique à la nuit quand les lumières s’allument et les gens s’attarder a prendre air. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le repas, nous avons préparé dans cette maison très particulière. Merci Amalia pour votre hospitalité et de Luca. A tres bientôt nous l’espérons par le nouvelle découverte”

Mark & Mark (New York, USA)

“This is an absolutely gorgeous totally renovated old stone house, incredibly tasteful decor and full of the owner’s wonderful art. The view is spectacular, with a balcony and roof terrace, good amenities and an excellent location in the wonderful city of Modica. The house is extremely comfortable and ideal for 2-4 people. Modica is probably the best of the towns in the Southeast of Sicily to stay in. We’ve rented houses all around the world and this is one of the best – and very good value”

Conor, Rosie, Dylan & Carla (Dublin, Ireland)

“Dear Amalia and Luca, thank you for your kind hospitality and for porviding such a warm welcome and enjoyable stay. Best wishes!”

Scotte, Nicole and sons (Cape Cod, USA)

“We had a wonderful time, thank you for sharing your great apartment. Thank you for the treats!”

Ana Maria (Lisbona, Portogallo)

“What wonderful days! I felt at home! You have a beautiful house thank you very much for your help!”

Cheryl & Margaret (Armidale, Australia)

“Just sitting on the terrace, glass of wine and pen in the hand watching the golden lights coming on and bathing the town. We never tire of watching this happen..what a wonderful place to be, we do’nt want to leave! It’s been a joy first been in Modica, the fun has been trying to get in and out of the town, but we have that sorted. This is a superb house, it’s fun well equipped and always good to get back to. Thank you Luca for meeting us in Rome and for being so helpful, we would love to come back again!
p.s. how fabulous to have the wonderful welcome basket of fruit, wine, chocolate and biscuits – you thought of everything! “

Mario e Roberta (Roma, Italia)

“Soggiornare in questa casa nel cuore della parte vecchia di Modica ci ha permesso di vagare attraverso le strade, i vicoli, le salite e le scorciatoie con la curiosità di scoprire dove si arriva, chi si incontra, cosa si vede, che si sente. Un cammino che ogni volta ti regala una nuova, bellissima sensazione. Due Anime a sud…le prime due”

Fabio, il poeta (Palazzolo Acreide, Italia)

“Come un sacerdote mi trovai a battezzare e poi a benedire questo luogo dell’Anima, che senza blasfemia, sacro può intendersi per il seme di volontà di Luca che l’ha voluto per celebrarci “messe” artistico-catartiche. Cerimonie di riscoperta dell’interiore, che solo Anime che viaggiano verso il Sud possono celebrare, nel più profondo perpetuo ciclo di spegnere e riscendere le fiamme della Vita.”

Vito e Federica (Roma, Italia)

“Una finestra sul mondo…questo è il nome che darei a questo angolo di paradiso. E’ bello svegliarsi la mattina e scrutare il paesaggio come un gatto assonnato dal tetto. E’ bello rientrare la sera e cercare di scovare la propria lucina sulla parete stellata. E’ bello sentirsi immersi in questa atmosfera magica e allo stesso tempo sperimentare la propria estraneità: un ritorno al passato letto in chiave metropolitana.”

Robina & Gregory + Maurice & Ingrid (Sidney, Australia)

“Dear Amalia and Luca, thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful apartment in this fascinating town! From the wonderful welcome with wine and chocolate and cookies to great advise you gave us, we could not have asked for more. A few missed turns and a couple of hair-raising minutes driving through the different towns added to the whole experience. Will go home with many wonderful memories and some great decorating ideas!”

Jorke & Bianca (Enchede, The Nederlands)

“Although we were only here for a short stay, we really enjoyed this place. Besides all the artistic and ecological details the overwhelming view was the best asset. Not to forget the lovely “gatos di Modica” on the rooftops and downstairs. Arrivederci!”

Fulvia e Giovanni (MIlano, Italia)

“Eccoci qua: siamo tornati! non pensavamo poteste rendere questa casa ancora più carina e invece ci siete riusciti: complimenti! questa volta c’era anche il sole, quindi tutto è stato assolutamente perfetto… un fantastico compleanno !!! Grazie di tutto”

Mike & Ma Jin (Meerbusch, Germany)

“Dear Amalia and Luca, your bird’s nest is also the most exquisite love nest … ! We enjoyed every moment in a house that is a home in every way. Although you can feel Luca’s touched all over the place we settled in immediately. Thanks so much for a wonderful week in Modica”

Angela & Alex (Atlanta, US)

“Dear Amalia+Luca Our stay could not have been more wonderful. Thank you so muchfor your hospitality and opening the beautiful place for us to use during our stay in Southeastern Sicily. We visited Ragusa, Syracuse, Noto and Scicli, and the best part was the cooking class you recommended. Memories of a lifetime, we can’t wait to return!”

Brighid, Rick, Jakob, Kilian (California, USA)

“Thank you Luca+Amalia for making our Easter break beautiful, peaceful, comfortable, a real escape from the city. Anime a Sud feels like home, albeit a more stylish, scenic version of home. You have created a jewel box of meditative grace, and we are grateful to have experienced it”

David, Julie and Serena (San Francisco, USA)

“This house is every bit as attractive and comfortable as the website suggests. We were met in town and provided useful and friendly orientation, pleasantly surprised by a welcome bottle of wine and some local sweets. Gorgeous vistas from the terrace, quiet evenings, delicious food, friendly locals and central location make it a great base for exploring Baroque Sicily”

Marcus & Uta (Munich, Germany – Brussels, Belgique)

“Dear Amalia, Dear Luca, thank you very much for opening this beautiful place and for the very warm welcome you offered to us. We spent a perfect time here in Modica and would like to come back! Danke+mille grazie per tutto”

Patty, Suzie and Doug (St. Catherines, Canada)

“Three Canadians had the pleasure of renting Luca’s apartment in mid-March and we all agree that the accommodations and setting were outstanding. We were cheerfully and graciously greeted by Amalia who even sent her brother Vincenzo around to make sure everything was in order later in our visit. The spectacular views from the patios were matched by the compelling art work of the owner. It was an experience to be savoured. Thanks to all who made it possible”.

David and Ginny Pow (Tunbridge Wells, UK)

“Modica lovely. The weather not so lovely, but enjoyed the comfort of the house, the via and the area. Many thanks”

Patrick, Valérie, Erica e Charlotte (Montreal, Canada)

We stayed at AnimeaSud for two weeks with our two daughters aged 5 at then end of February 2010. Overall the house is great, very nicely renovated with modern touches and a lot of art. The view is extraordinary from the house, the balcony and the terrace upstairs …

Luca, Lucia, Clelia, Bianca e Giovanni (Torino, Italia)

“Caro Luca, siamo arrivati a Torino, e finalmente ho il tempo per scriverle e ringraziarla, ancora una volta, della deliziosa ospitalità ricevuta. Le nostre giornate a Modica sono state incantevolmente intense, e tornare ogni serata nella sua casa e’ stato, per noi e per i nostri bambini, ogni giorno motivo di vero piacere”

Mindy, Melissa & Levi (Tirana, Albania – Washington D.C., USA)

“Beautiful, large home. Lovely decor, large space, balconies with beautiful views. At the top of a hill, but the walk down and up was not bad- we were able to easily do it with our 4 year old child. Modica is great, the manager was very helpful, and the space was perfect. Highly recommended”

Joseph and Lynn (Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA)

“Bellissima Modica!
Bellissima Anime a Sud!
We had a fabulous month touring all the towns and driving in the countryside. The people of Sicily are so welcoming and happy to assist!
Special thank you Luca for use of the apartament and meeting us on our arrival. It was so special to spend time with you and Fiorella!
Thanks to Amalia for all your help!!
We feel confortable in Modica and will return soon!
We so enioy looking out at the view of the city. Very relaxing and special.
Till we meet again!…(soon!)
Grazie di tutto
Lynn and Joe”

Gerard e Margaux, (Lourges, France)

“Cher Luca, Heureux voyage et déja la nostalgie de la Sicile. Le séjour a Modica, chez vous, a véritablement répondu à notre attente. Modica est une trés belle ville, trés vraie, l’implantation du logement au coeur de la cité, sa proximité des habitants et de leurs lieux de vie quodidiens, son esthétique , la qualité de l’accueil , nous ont donné l’impression de ressentir l’âme de la Sicile.
Nous avons apprécié votre sensibilté aux problèmes écologiques (je travaille au développement du réseau européen “Natura 2000″ de préservation de la faune et de la flore).
et nous restons trés sensibles à votre oeuvre de plasticien.
Amalia avec beaucoup de gentillesse et d’égards nous a reçu comme des hotes, nous l’en remercions vivement. Tout cela nous donne l’envie de refaire, chez vous, un nouveau sèjour avec plus de temps, cette fois”

Fulvia e Giovanni (Milano, Italia)

Anime a Sud is a splendid apartment, greatly furnished and offering all possible comforts: there’s a well equipped kitchen, air conditioning/heater, two gorgeous bathrooms with shower, a TV set and CD player… there’s even a washing machine and the landlord provides washing powder!! The place where the house is located, within the oldest and loveliest part of Modica, is really amazing: the view you enjoy from the dining room window literally takes your breath away and it’s one that you will not easily forget. As you can see from the plan published on their website, the apartment is on two levels – the two bedrooms are one lovelier than the other and everything in the house is brand new, modern and of very good taste. There’s also a terrace where you can sit, relax and enjoy the view over the famous roofs of Modica. Moreover, the welcome you receive from the owner and his assistant is fantastic: they give you plenty of information on things to see and do / places to eat or shop, and are always available for help should you need any. Modica is the perfect place to start off to a series of great visits: from tiny historical villages like Scicli to romantic beaches which lay only 19 km away (30 mts by car). Roads are in a good state there’s no problem driving around. We stayed there for a week in September 2009 and have been dreaming of going back since: it’s a place to stay I really recommend and very good value for money too”

Marco e Laura (Milano, Italia)

Dal diario del viaggio di nozze: “Trascorsa la mattinata in spiaggia a Vulcano abbiamo preso l’aliscafo per Milazzo, affittato una brillante 500 rossa e, dopo una breve sosta a Noto, siamo arrivati a Modica. Siamo ospiti della casa Anime a Sud. Fantastica. Accoglienza da principi da parte di Luca e Amalia: petali, cioccolata e vino bianco. Un sogno!”

Rita, Roberto, Luigi, Daniela (Roma, Italia)

“Modica rosa al tramonto è una culla e S. Giorgio a volerla abbracciare da questo balcone, e uscire (su questo balcone) è come entrare in un quadro: la portafinestra più bella del mondo e aspettare seduto qui fuori, aspettare Gigi & Daniela che tornano su di fianco, il mio amore e quel detto:”Futti futti ca ‘u Signore perdona a tutti”. Quattro anime a sud qualche anno d’amore quattro anime perse signor ranger signore ”

Marianna, Daniela, Giancarlo (Milano, Italia) – 22.08.09

“Che dire… che è un posto da cartolina è senz’altro vero, che si respira la tradizione attraverso gli spazi curati, pensati con grande attenzione, la cosa più bella è che siamo stati bene, bene davvero come e più di come ci aspettavamo. Accolti in una vera casa. Torneremo…”

Jean Pierre, Joëlle, Sacha et Salomé (Marseille, France) – 14.08.09

Merci de cet accueil attentioné et delicat dans une maison de rêve.
Nous avon particulierement apprecie le travail artistique de Luca. Vivre au milieu de ses oevres nous a permis d’etre en phase avec la magie de cette ville de Modica.
Nous esperan revoir las oevres de Luca, peut-être las d’una exposition a Marseille?
