If you’re looking for a place to stay in Modica, I highly recommend booking B&B L’Orangerie. A 19th Century Palazzo in the historic centre, L’Orangerie is a simple bed and breakfast situated on Via Corso Umberto. Owned by locals Giovanni Cartia and his family, L’Orangerie makes a perfect base to see the the main sights of Modica. Moreover, the historical ambiance of L’Orangerie is serene and lovely- just what you need for your Sicilian trip!
Where to Stay in Modica-L’Orangerie
Why Book L’Orangerie
The Bed & Breakfast L’Orangerie is in the heart of the town and everything is just 5 minutes walking distance. The best Bars, restaurants and stores are 5-7 minutes from here as is the Duomo!
I visited Modica in mid April when it was already hot and humid. But since L’Orangerie is an old Palazzo, the interiors of the palazzo were cool. They were a welcome relief after a long day and were vibrant and tastefully done.
L’Orangerie’s rooms are simple and basic but also big enough to move around. There is a double sized bed, terrace, attached bathroom with toiletries, reading lamp + magazines (enough to challenge my Italian reading skills).
The check in and out was simple as they give you a key when you come.
Breakfast in L’Orangerie
L’Orangerie’s breakfast was lavish and delicious. It was an international treat with an Italian touch! I was served an unlimited choice of Sicilian cold cuts, cakes, bread, jams along with a choice of coffee and juice.
L’Orangerie is a great place to stay in Modica and deserves attention because it has so much to offer. Furthermore, if you are a book lover, this place is perfect for you because the TV show “Commissario Montalbano” is shot here, especially around Duomo di San Pietro of Modica.
