Baglio Amore is an old country house with private swimming pool located in the vicinity of Modica, a small, charming baroque town in southern Sicily. Situated along a back road that passes through the sweet countryside of Modica, the dwelling has easy access to the nearby cities full of art of the Val di Noto, such as Scicli, Ragusa-Ibla, Noto and Syracuse, to the important archaeological, natural sites of Cava d'Ispica and of the Oasi di Vendicari and to the renowned beaches of Marina di Modica and Pozzallo. This beautiful dwelling belongs to an old, charming “baglio”, a traditional, rural architecture which was built round an internal courtyard that includes the manor house itself and the close farmhouse, occasionally occupied by the owner. Beyond the courtyard is the large swimming pool with terrace-solarium surrounded by a luxuriant garden with citrus trees and Mediterranean plants. Baglio Amore has cosy, well-proportioned interiors decorated with unique, tasteful furnishings - from the spacious entrance to the bright living room, from the modern kitchen to the comfortable bedrooms - and is the ideal spot for those looking for relaxation in refined rooms.

The only comment would be to make it clearer on the instructions for arrival that you are meeting the owners in the centre of Modica and that they will drive you to the property. It was very confusing and delayed the arrival process considerably.
Baglio Amore is a quiet and peaceful gem to start exploring the Sicilian South East. The garden and large pool are a joy after a journey in the region and let Al Vecchio Mulino be your host for diners. A single suggestion is to replace the parasol at the pool by a stronger design.
Our stay at Baglio Amore was a great success - very good accommodation in an excellent location with a marvellous large swimming pool.
The Property was excellent and the owners were very pleasant to deal with. It would be good to have a local map and details of the location of shops. The local town, Modica is beautiful and Ragusa Ibla is very close by.
