About Villa Petra
Discovering Villa Petra in Historic Modica
In Eastern Sicily, nestled in the heart of Modica’s historic center, Villa Petra emerges from an ancient dwelling. This unique villa, crafted from a centuries-old habitat, showcases a blend of history and modernity.
A Fusion of Past and Present
The ground floor, entirely carved into rock (locally known as ‘timpa’), dates back to the early 1000s. Interestingly, the villa’s first-floor expansion and its distinctive external stepped connection are of a more modern era.
The renovation focused on transforming the property into a welcoming guest structure. Designers meticulously preserved the site’s original character while minimally altering it. They reimagined the interior layout and modernized the facilities, ensuring a seamless blend of old and new.
Contemporary Design Meets Traditional Charm
Custom furniture, strategic lighting, and the redesign of outdoor spaces define Villa Petra. The addition of a pergola and a reflective water feature, alongside carefully selected plants, creates a contemporary, inviting setting. This harmonious environment perfectly complements the villa’s unique historical essence.
