Palazzo Failla

5 Via Blandini
Modica , Italy

Just five minutes from the Castello dei Conti (Castle of the Counts), the Palazzo Failla hotel is housed in an 18th-century mansion in Modica Alta (Upper Modica). Inside, the hotel retains historic design elements such as frescoed vaults and original Maiolica ceramics. The nine guest rooms are individually decorated, although most include antique Venetian furniture, gilt mirrors, ceiling frescoes, and large windows. The Green Junior Suite also has two private balconies. A full breakfast buffet is included, and the hotel is also home to the Michelin one-starred Ristorante La Gazza Ladra, which serves contemporary Italian cuisine from chef Accursio Craparo.
