Description
Giogaia is a pleasant "bed & breakfast" in Modica (Sicily), not far from the Mediterranean Sea. It is situated on a quiet hill five minutes’ drive from the centre of town.

We live in a lovely house among the trees. There is a garden round it, where you can find fruit-trees, flowers and vegetables. But there is something else: our love for privacy and family life. If you spend your holidays at Giogaia you are immediately conscious that the experience is something extraordinary.

Ours is a spacious, two storey house with two separate entrances, and two outbuildings. On one side of the house there is a garage, where you can park your car.

We can offer you five pleasant rooms. All our rooms are air-conditioned and heated. On the terrace or in the garden the guests can enjoy a few relaxing hours under the warm Sicilian sunshine.

Breakfast is served on the sunny balcony adjoining the attic or, if you prefer, in the large and welcoming lounge by the fireside.

The management is available for advice, information and entertainment to make your holiday in this part of Sicily unforgettable in every way.

Breakfast
Specialties of the House are those of the land of Sicily and of our hospitable city, the ancient Earldom of Modica: traditions and recipes that time couldn't cancel, and that today, in our Giogaia, become
the usual Savours that we offer to our guests.

We consider ourselves lucky because we live on the "Hillock of Mauto" and the fruits that render the table particularly tempting and rich in Flavours come from our own orchard and garden.

The most important moment of the day is breakfast, a feast of Savours that give to our guests the energy to start merrily their daily tour. Jams, cakes, biscuits, bread, fruit in season, orange squash, almond-milk - everything regularly home-made, as the famous "Modican Chocolate".

To equalize the conditions of sale to "booking.com" for the "double room 5" prices do not include breakfast.

Hey from Piero

Member since July 2003 | 81,159 hits
We love traveling and discovering the beauties of our peninsula and in particular Sicily. Our wanderings are made of small journeys and small discoveries. The bed and breakfast commits us enough so we take advantage of some short holiday or some weekends. From this wanderings are born also the suggestions that we love to give to our guests and, not only, to those who want Giusy can teach the secrets of the Modican gastronomy.

An invitation to visit us,
Giusy and Piero.

The structure is located in a very quiet area, but allows you to quickly reach the points of interest in the area. Quiet, clean, tidy environment, with everything you need. The owners are kind and helpful people. Congratulations on the excellent breakfast, always varied, rich in local products and homemade products.

I stayed at this Giogaia B&B *** with my whole family at the end of June. The quality-price ratio is excellent and the owners (husband and wife) are friendly and very helpful in meeting the guests' needs. The breakfast is always plentiful and excellent, thanks to the delicacies prepared by Piero's wife. We highly recommend it.

Super positive experience for the kindness and friendliness of the owners Piero and Giusy, whom we thank once again. Very punctual breakfast, very varied and above all genuine, consumed on a terrace that can only be described as heavenly. Despite my wife's problem (celiac disease), even though we didn't warn them, they did everything to meet the needs (not insignificant for this condition) of her first breakfast. Highly recommended. We will gladly return.

Giogaia is a great reference for those who want to visit Modica and surroundings (Scicli, Ibla, Porto Palo, Castello di Donnafugata, Syracuse, Punta Cirica, etc.). The rooms are comfortable and very clean. There is a lot of attention to respecting the health and hygiene regulations in this period of health emergency. The breakfasts under the pergola are legendary: excellent, abundant, with always different and homemade proposals. The managers Giusy and Piero are very helpful and attentive to every request.

Structure located at the gates of the city of Modica, in a strategic position to visit the city itself and the surrounding areas (Scicli, Ragusa, Ispica, Donnalucata, Portopalo). The room we occupied, furnished in a simple way, is very spacious and quiet (overlooking the garden). The bathroom is also large and comfortable, with a good shower. The breakfast is abundant and rich in choices. We prefer sweet things and therefore we appreciated the juices (one day they prepared a fantastic fresh fruit smoothie for us), yogurt, homemade jams and sweets, artisan biscuits, milk coffee or cappuccino as desired. The owners are extremely friendly to the point of making you feel like family (it may sound like a cliché but in this case it is really so): they went out of their way to suggest places to go for dinner rather than the best organization of visits in the surroundings of Modica. Free Wi-Fi and convenient parking inside the courtyard. In summary, a structure where we would gladly return and feel confident in recommending it.

Two breakfasts were enough to understand that Giusy and Piero are people you don't come across easily. We felt the mysterious feeling of knowing them forever, more like friends than hosts with whom even discussing personal matters feels natural. Thank you for the hospitality and friendliness.

Gentilissimi, ci preme ringraziarvi per il cortese commento. Avete colto la natura che è insita in noi che è quella di entrare in sintonia con i nostri ospiti in modo da soddisfare il più possibile le loro necessità o aspettative. Con voi è stato naturale anche per "la naturale impressione di conoscervi da sempre". Grazie e arrivederci alla prossima. Giusy e Piero dalla Giogaia, Modica.
