Overview

About the property

bedroom, living room with two single beds, dinette, kitchen, terrace, bathroom

My home is a house of the Sicilian middle class of the 50s The apartment is on the second floor of a Liberty building. .The furniture is the family of the '40s and' 50s. It is a very bright house with windows in individual rooms. As you can see from the house plant, it has a central hallway which leads to the terrace, to the living room, the bedroom, the bathroom (in front of the entrance door) and kitchen. The bedroom and living room have a balcony on via the Crucifix, the bathroom has a window, and even the kitchen has a large window on a characteristic courtyard. The terrace overlooks in the interior space. The feature of the house is its brightness, not usual in the houses of Ortigia, and the height of the roofs which are vaulted and 4.50 m high at the top and barrel vault in the hallway. Even the furniture characterizes it, because it is just in Ortigia and not repeatable in other cities.Alongside the history the present the comforts, air conditioning in two bedrooms, microwave, flat screen television, free internet access etc Restored 2013

In close proximity to all major baroque and Greek monuments of Ortigia, the Aretusa source, the Bellomo Museum, the Caravaggio in the church of St. Lucia to the Abbey, restaurants, lunch bars, the market of Ortigia, with the sounds and colors of a market Mediterranean.

About Domus Elena,

I am 72 years old and everyone says well taken. I was a professor of art history in high schools. I graduated in Classical Arts in University of Catania with honors in 1968. I am in love with my city of which I see the merits and defects. I know deeply Sicily, its art and its traditions. I can advise you little known places and routes but exciting, culinary curiosity and more

Domus Elena, purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Domus Elena, chose Syracuse

I knew this house as a young girl and I have always loved. Ortigia is my home, not for the monuments and museums that you can walk to it through the narrow streets that follow the greek system, to the Greek and Roman columns visible in the buildings of the 1700s, to the window without the building, and all the details that the changing light makes it look different at every time of day. And then the old 08/12 baroque processions for the Virgin Mary and from 13/12 to 21/12 when the chryselephantine statue of Saint Lucia is offered to the population. But the most particular procession is the one that takes place from 3 o'clock at dawn del29 November whose name can be translated from the Sicilian 'the walk to wake up'

What makes this apartment unique

The living room and bedroom have vaulted ceilings high m.4,50 and at the height of the balcony from the respective path of the Crucified we see the shrine of Our Lady of the Angels on the secondary site of the Church of Santa Maria to the nuns that preserves between 'another beautiful ceramic flooring of Caltagirone del1700. The entrance is covered by a barrel vault with large windows overlooking the terrace.

A wonderful apartment in the Centre of Ortegia

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the most wonderful stay for 6 nights in Elena's lovely apartment. We had everything we needed and more for our family of two adults with one 10 year old boy.

It is well situated and charming. I would definitely recommend this as a fabulous place to stay
