A fabulous regional experience at dinner - everything is home-produced. Make friends with the owners even if you don’t speak the language!

Concetta and Fillippo have bags of enthusiasm for their agriturismo, their food (it's exceptional), their children, and their eventful lives. They've been doing B&B in this pretty area of southern Sicily for over a decade now but there's no sign of their slowing down; everything is done with Sicilian energy, humour and flair. Simple bedrooms in the old stables border a grassy square with tables and chairs so you can sit out in the sun, while the rooms above the restaurant are more elegant, with high ceilings and polished chests at the foot of handsome beds. Dinner is a fabulous regional experience and everything is home-produced, from the olive oils to the wines. It's a great spot for families too – children will enjoy getting to know the friendly donkeys, and there's a communal sitting room stuffed with books and games for dreary days. The sea isn't far; Modica is a half-hour drive. Little English is spoken here but you'll leave with new friendships made – even if you haven't managed to exchange a single word in the same language!

"We have just returned from a ten night stay in Nacalino and can't recommend it highly enough. The owners, Tina & Fillipo, work so hard to make sure that everyone feels adn home and experience real Sicilian food. We rooms were perfect -spacious, clean, TV and great aircon. They gave us a travel cot which saved us bringing ours (12kg of luggage) so don't forget to ask on booking if you need one. Breakfast was fantastic with amazing coffee, homemade cakes and biscuits as well as healthier options. Dinner was by far our favourite part of staying at Nacalino. Most guests tend to stay for dinner as it is a four course Sicilian treat. Dinner is served in the dining room on cooler nights but weather permitting is served in the courtyard. Some nights there were as many as twenty five of us and the atmosphere was as fantastic as the food. Both Tina and Fillipo are passionate about their produce: almost everything on the table is from their farm, if they don't produce it themselves they are on first name terms with the person who does. We ate their for 9 nights out of ten and never had the same dish twice. If you are planning a visit to Modica then Nacalino is a must but be prepared it can be tricky to find. Best to follow the written directions and not enter the coordinates if using Sat Nav - this will get you horribly lost as there are several roads very close to the house and the satellites can be slow to update. Ask about shop opening and closing times - most close from 1-3 or 4pm for lunch. Don't rely on paying by card, a lot of places only take cash. The nearest ATM is in Modica town centre. There is no literature provided on the area so be sure to ask Tina & Fillipo for advice before you head out. Enjoy !"
