Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely week in Ortigia, enjoying the sun and some great food. The apartment was perfectly located for swimming and exploring. Perfect size for the both of us, with a good little kitchen where we prepared a couple of dinners. Roberta's mother and brother were on hand if we had any issues and were very helpful. Thanks for a wonderful holiday Roberta!

Fantastic apartment and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ortigia for 1 week and had a wonderful time. Roberta and her family were very kind and always ready to offer any help or advice during our time in her lovely apartment. The location was fantastic, right in the heart of historic Ortigia and surrounded by many small, beautiful streets perfect for exploring.

The market was a real highlight and we ate in most of the time cooking the amazing ingredients we had bought that day.

Very nice terrace to sit out on during the evening.

Perfect holiday.

Fantastic experience! Definitely recommend

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is excellent. It's located in the heart of Ortigia, which makes it very convenient. The rooms are spacious and in great condition, making the stay very pleasant. The A/C works really well, which is definitely a plus given how warm Sicily gets in the summer months.

My favorite part of the stay was the stuff. Roberta, the hotel manager, is a wonderful person. She is great at her job and also incredibly nice. The whole time I was there, she showed great commitment to making the guests' stay as pleasant as possible and she was also pleasant to talk to.

I made feel like at home!

I most definitely recommend La Gorgone to anyone traveling to Siracusa.

Lovely, cosy apartment in the heart of Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cosy apartment in the heart of Ortigia but, at the same time, very close to the sea. It is perfect for a holiday with your other half, as I did. Nice terrace,we appreciated having our breakfast with the wonderful sea view. Roberta is a fantastic host, going to extra mile to help with any questions you may have. We had a wonderful stay , strongly recommended! :)

Clean apartment,well equipped,great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fantastic week at Roberta's place. She met us even though late at night and gave us loads of great tips about how to spend our time - even explaining the unfathomable parking regulations of Ortigia. The apartment was excellent - very clean and great location with a beautiful roof terrace. Roberta - and her delightful mum - were perfect hosts and I will be recommending La Gorgone to my friends for sure.

I and my partner we loved our stay in Roberta's beautiful apartment. The location is great, the interior is very cosy, the sea view from the roof terrace is absolutely stunning and Roberta and family are warm, welcoming and helpful hosts. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect apartment in Syracuse!

Ein Stadt,Kultur und Strandurlaub für die Familie

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft war gut für 2 Personen.Bei der Ankunft ist man die engen Gassen nicht

gewöhnt.Das Frühstück auf der Terrasse mit dem Blick aufs Meer ist schon toll.

Unsere Vermieterin hat sich um alles gekümmert und war bemüht uns den Aufenthalt

so gut es geht angenehm zu gestalten,trotz der Sprachprobleme.
