Anime a Sud - Residenza Hortus
Hortus is a charming 16th-century residence that is part of the Anime e Sud collection. Based in Modica, Sicily, the property consists of 3 suites that can accommodate up to 6 people. If sheer charm and intimate paradise are on your wishlist for your next vacation, this is a Sicilian beauty that you will not want to leave. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, high-quality beds, vaulted ceilings and are surrounded by local stone. There are special details in each, take for example the round bed and tub in the Acqua Suite, the bio-fireplace in Fuoco Suite and the queen-size bed with an alcove that radiates romance and perfectly faces the terrace in the Aria Suite.
Enjoy balmy summer afternoons sitting outside in the secluded garden, lined with stone walls or nestle in the corner of the jacuzzi for pure relaxation. The harmonious outdoor living area with garden, is the soul of the property, which is why it is suitably named Hortus - meaning garden in Latin. The residence is most popular for private events, honeymoons and family trips. The long lava-stone tiled table outside is emblematic of a rustic retreat and simply yearns for starting the day with breakfast alfresco and aperitif time among loved ones. Expect stylish furniture, a fully-equipped kitchen and special touches from interior designer and owner Luca Giannini. The underground cellar certainly is a huge plus, as are the additional services that are available upon request to help you relax and immerse in Sicilian life and culture. These include massages and treatments, private tours, winery visits, Sicilian cooking classes, airport transfers and more.
