Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

Villa Rubino occupies a privileged position within a small residential area nestled in the countryside close to the city of Modica. You can drive to Modica in less than 15 minutes, with the coast and sandy beaches also conveniently reached.

This contemporary villa is like a breath of fresh air; with both the exterior and interior being white, bright and finished to an immaculate standard. The luxurious living space features two areas for relaxing. One is perfect for casual gatherings in front of the television, with the other a more formal area for reading and those quieter times.

Wherever you unwind or dine, you'll be rewarded with glorious views over either the main terrace with pool and out across the countryside, or over the lawned front garden. This area of garden is especially great for children to play games on and burn off some energy!

The relaxed feeling continues into each of the four bedrooms. One first-floor bedroom also has its own balcony terrace from where views over the lovely surrounding landscape can be enjoyed.

Also enjoy poolside-cocktails and al fresco meals on the main terrace, with the swimming pool being a beautiful focal point. The space is especially magical once evening falls, with lawn lamps illuminating it for a perfectly enchanting atmosphere.

Villa Rubino provides an ideal base for day trips to places such as the cultured city of Modica, which is only 15 minutes away by car. Its main attractions are the number of Baroque buildings, chocolate museums and a fascinating chocolate museum.

Other historic must-visits include the hilltop town of Ragusa and the city of Syracuse with its old town called Ortigia. The ancient Archaeological area of Cava d'Ispica is just a short drive away.

You can also be relaxing on sandy beaches and swimming in azure waters within 20 minutes, after driving to coastal spots like Pozzallo and Marina di Modica.

Villa Rubino enjoys an enviable position within the countryside surrounding the city of Modica; which is just a 15 minute drive. On a country road, amenities are even closer, with a few restaurants, bars and shops only five minutes away by car.

Known for its stunning Baroque architecture, the city of Modica is a great place for a day out. Enjoy historic sightseeing at the cathedrals of Duomo di San Pietro and Duomo di San Giorgio, as well as browsing the archaeological finds on show at the Museo Civico. Modica is also famous for chocolate, so be sure to visit its number of chocolate shops and the museum that tells the story of chocolate making in the city.

In a dramatic, rugged spot and full of atmosphere is the Archaeological area of Cava d'Ispica. Walk around this impressive site to discover ancient cave homes and burial sites that were carved into a mountain many thousands of years ago.

Another historic must-visit is the hilltop town of Ragusa. The old town is full of Baroque buildings to admire, with Giardino Ibleo gardens a lovely place to take a break and take in panoramic views over the valleys. Shoppers will also love the number of outlets in the town, with some top designer shops amongst them.

The coast is ljust minutes away by car, with some of the nicest beaches found at Marina di Modica and Pozzallo. Marina di Modica is great for those into watersports, with ideal conditions for surfing and windsurfing.

    Very nice big house, very clean, nice outdoor area and pool. Communication was very good and fast.

  • Just excellent

    on 18/09/2022

    The villa was perfect for our requirements. The owner was excellent and very helpful with local information and making sure we were well looked after. The outdoor space was excellent and we dined outside for the whole week. The inside of the villa was spacious and just excellent.

  • We had a great time

    on 30/08/2022

    We had a great time at the Villa Rubino. The Villa is clean, very stylish and the pool and outdoor area very comfortable.
    The city of Modica is just a few minutes by car. There are many good restaurants and gelaterias. From the villa you can also reach different beautiful beaches.
    During our stay the owner has been all the time in contact to us and was very helpful. Many thanks!
    We can recommend this villa and would definitely stay there again.

  • Just right for big family get-togethers

    on 17/07/2022

    Villa Rubino is just right for big family get togethers. Loads of space. Every bedroom has an en suite. Even an outside loo behind the showers. Swimming pool is a must and this did not disappoint. Supermarket just a 10 minute drive and 20 minutes and you are at the beach.

  • Beautiful, clear and comfortable house

    on 09/11/2019

    Everything there - from good hairdryer to orange juice maker. Perfect communication from the host. If you're looking for a comfortable house near Modica, Noto and Ragusa - good bet.

    We had a lovely stay at Villa Rubino! We stayed here with our 3 sons and their girlfriends and were very surprised with the house. Everything was there to be found and the swimming pool was beautiful. We were lucky with the weather too! Everything was really lovely! Thanks and maybe next year...

  • We will be back for sure!
