Villa Silviana is set in the countryside just outside Modica which is one of eight UNESCO World Heritage sites in the south-east of Sicily.
Villa Silviana sits in private gardens and is all on one level. There are two bedrooms, one double and one twin with one shower room. The twin bedroom has steep steps leading to a mansard where there is a single bed suitable for a teenager. There is a large kitchen which leads directly through to the living/dining room. Both the living room and the kitchen have doors which open out onto a spacious terrace which has a covered dining area and barbecue.
The pool is directly in front of the terrace and is surrounded by a pretty, enclosed garden where you can enjoy relaxing with a good book and a glass of chilled Sicilian wine.
Villa Silviana offers comfortable accommodation for anyone looking to explore this beautiful part of Sicily. Modica, which is just a short drive away, offers an excellent selection of sophisticated shops, bars and restaurants.

The villa was beautiful. The pool was stunning and the house was extremely well equipped. It exceeded our expectations! Sicily is amazing and we loved the area. The location of the villa is almost perfect - convenient for shops and amenities, close to Modica and within easy reach of the beach and other towns. It’s quiet and peaceful but not isolated. The main road towards Modica is quite fast so it’s an easy drive but not walkable. We had a tremendously warm welcome from the owners who treated us as new friends. Daniela was knowledgeable and very helpful and we were well looked after. We had a wonderful holiday thanks to Essential Italy, especially Daniela in Sicily and Ian in the UK Office. Villa Silviana was superb and we will definitely book again. Thank you!

The welcome from the hosts was exceptional. They cooked delicious food, provided all the basics and lovely local wine. The villa itself was immaculate. The pool very large and great for children. The diving board was a great addition. The gardens are beautiful with lemon trees. The barbecue area was excellent and we ate at the table next to the pool most evenings. Very close to Modica – which is handy. There is a supermarket close by. Everyone at Essential Italy could not do enough, thank you very much for a great holiday.

Villa Silivana - beautiful villa, in really gorgeous and beautifully maintained grounds, lots of lovely sights and smells of well tended plants & flowers. The pool is a great size, and immaculately kept. Lots of outdoor seating, and a lovely terrace with large table and cushioned benches. Very well stocked kitchen, everything you need, including a coffee machine, and lots of dry provisions (pasta, honey, coffee ... all sorts of things!). The owners met us on arrival, and left many generous welcome gifts (wine, chocolates, pizza, arancini, bread). Fresh flowers in all the rooms. Really comfy bed and pillows. Easy to get to neighbouring towns for trips out (walking tour & many meals in Modica, spotting Montalbano filming spots!, Scicli, Ragusa, Noto and more). Thank you for an amazing and relaxing holiday! Essential Italy: excellent service, great choice of properties. Easy to book, make payment. Clear details provided throughout, to make trip hassle free. Great customer service and follow up communication by email as well.
