Il soggiorno è stato molto soddisfacente, l'appartamento è molto accogliente e in una buona posizione nel cuore di Ortigia. Lo consiglierei senz'altro!

L'appartement est très bien situé car proche du centre d'Ortygie.

Il est spacieux et adapté à une famille de 4 personnes, la décoration est simple et un peu vieillotte.

Contrairement à ce qui est indiqué sur l'annonce, il n'y a pas de parking sous la maison, on peut, avec un peu de chance, garer gratuitement la voiture à quelques centaines de mètres sur le front de mer.

Pour ce qui est de la vue sur la mer, on peut effectivement en se penchant et en tournant la tête voir la mer au bout de la ruelle !

Après de nombreux échanges de mails portant sur le règlement de la location et sur notre heure d'arrivée, nous n'avons plus eu de contacts avec Franco qui a délégué à son père (qui ne parle qu'italien) le soin de nous accueillir.

Heureusement que la visite d'Ortygie a compensé la déception de cet appartement.

Ideale ed accogliente

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è ubicato in una posizione comodissima per girare Ortigia a piedi e raggiungere tuti i punti di interesse, piazza Duomo, i monumenti, il mercato del pesce, i locali . E' stato appena ristrutturato, tutto è nuovo! Pulito, completo di ogni comfort per 5 persone e silenzioso nella notte. Al nostro arrivo Franco ci ha accolto con gentilezza e con ogni tipo di informazione utile alla visita della città! Il sottofondo del rumore delle onde è indimenticabile. Sicuramente da consigliare

L'appartamento è perfetto per 4 persone, credo ristrutturato da poco e dotato di ogni comfort in un palazzo in perfetto stile Ortigia.

Spazioso, luminoso e in una posizione strategica: vista mare e vicino alle strisce bianche dove abbiamo lasciato tutte le sere la macchina senza dover pagare nulla (in caso non ci fosse posto il parcheggio Talete è comunque ad un passo). Vi sentirete parte del luogo.

La macchina la potete dimenticare al parcheggio perché Ortigia si gira tutta a piedi ed è un posto magico.

Franco è una persona molto carina e disponibile.

Sono stati 5 giorni magnifici.
