About the property

Breathtaking view, central location and a stone's throw from the island of Ortigia

The apartment is very close to the city center, one step away from the night life and the best restaurants, also well served by public transport. You can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and the city of Syracuse, the location is also excellent for walking and the atmosphere is absolute relaxation. My accommodation is suitable for couples, solitary adventurers, business travelers and pets are always welcome.

Please contact me for any information, I will be happy to help you!

Good location for walking into old town

  • 5 of 5

Good size apartment for two. Margherita and her father were both very helpful and we enjoyed our stay . Great view from the balcony.

Beautiful, spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

After a minor gaffe in finding our way from the Interbus Stazione (it is really close!) we were greeted by the owner's father, who lives in the other apartment on this, the top (7th) floor. Very pleasant gentleman.

A couple of minor negatives: For a modern apartment, there surprisingly few electrical outlets. Since the bedroom was warm some nights, we wanted to use the air conditioner; we could not make it work. The light by the front door was not working. Entry in the dark was tricky.

Otherwise, this was a beautiful apartment, just 5 minutes walk from Isola di Ortigia, the old city. It was bright, secure, and spacious for two people. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom attractive and pleasant. There was plenty of hot water. The clothes washer worked well, although there were few clothes pegs to hang one's laundry on the lines off the bedroom balcony.

Both the large front balcony and the small bedroom balcony had pleasing views.

The small refrigerator and gas stove served our minimal needs quite well.

We loved Ortigia, and this apartment was the ideal home base for exploring the island.

Gorgeous apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was the perfect location for our trip to Sicily. Lots to do in the area and central for site seeing and close to local beaches. Margherita was very helpful and attentive during our visit and quick to respond. The apartment has a fantastic roof terrace overlooking looking the city where we enjoyed seeing the amazing views and listening to the hustle and bustle below. We would highly recommend the apartment :-)

Great location and views!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, modern decor, and dining area. The kitchen was tiny but fine for our short break, plus the restaurants in the area are amazing. I would suggest a BBQ on the terrace. The terrace space for the apartment is much smaller than the description makes out, and the rest belongs to the owner (we were told we could use the owners terrace on the other side but this was away from our apartment). Great experience overall and would highly recommend for a short stay in the area.

Fantastic location, sheltered terrace, all amenities close by.

  • 5 of 5

We were well looked after by Margherita and her father Pietro during our stay. The apartment was easy to find and Margherita could always be contacted by 'phone during our stay should we run into any difficulties. We received good advice on trips and cultural activities from Pietro which also included likely travelling times which was a great help. The apartment was clean and well equipped, the furniture seemed to be very new and from Ikea with the air conditioning in the bedroom very necessary in the recent very hot weather. Being on the 7th floor and served by a lift we had fantastic views overlooking a park with views over Syracusa to Etna in the North and the sea and Ortiga out to our right.The kitchen was small but adequate to cook/prepare basic meals and we found ourselves eating fresh vegetables, cheeses and bread which were bought from shops which are within 2-3 mins walk from the apartment. There are snack bars locally (within 1 minutes walk) and many good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Pietro recommended one at the back of the apartment and I must say it was fantastic. We did most of our restaurant eating locally and found them to be full of locals eating typical Sicilian food. There are indications the area is " up and coming" with a few trendy eateries, I found the food to be excellent and good value for money. Going to Syracusa is likely to be linked with visits to Ortiga which is 5 minutes walk to either of the bridges over to the island. Ortiga is very picturesque and a visit to the main square in the evening is a must. There is a greater draw for tourists here and the buildings are very beautiful, the shops on the main street are typically Italian and cater for tourists and locals alike. As Ortiga is the cultural and entertainment centre of Syracusa there are many restaurants, cafes and street entertainment to occupy your time. I heartily recommend this accommodation as a centre for a sight-seeing break or a relaxed break away. It is central with on street parking available for those wishing to explore the sites of South East Sicily and within walking distance of many restaurants for evening entertainment. The train station is approximately 300 metres away.

Great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment looking out across Siracusa skyline. Had everything we needed and great hospitality from Margherita and her father. We had a fabulous time touring the city and the surrounding area and parking outside the apartment was easy.

Needed to drive to find sunny and sandy beaches but then you had a big choice to pick from!

Fabulous holiday and had a great vacation.
