It is well positioned in Oritiga with nothing on the island being more than ten minutes’ walk from the flat. Syracuse is also well positioned to visit other destinations on the east coast of Sicily. Everything in the flat was as described and as we expected, and you could not ask for a more helpful host than Floriana. We look forward to our next trip!

The traffic is a little crazy around Catania but the closer you get to this property, the driving is easy. The property is located at the end of a small private driveway off the main road. It is easy to miss the first time but once you know where it is, it is better. We met the owner, Anna Maria who showed us around and gave us a quick orientation of the property. It is quite beautiful, with a large open deck on the second floor and a covered deck on the first. The rooms were large, clean, and well organized, all with great views. Everything was as described and we felt very safe in the property and surrounding area. Everything you need for your stay is here, even a few electrical adapters and cords. The washer is new and was nice to have so we just had carry-on luggage. There is a folding rack to dry the clothes in the hot Sicilian sun which is faster than any electric. The gardens around the house are beautiful with countless varieties of flowers and flowering cactus. The road is not very busy and most of the noise is from birds. The location is great for day trips to the city of Siracusa or Noto. There are stairs in the back that lead down to the ocean which is crystal clear and nice for swimming, diving and snorkeling. There are some poured areas where you can set up chairs or towels. The shore is also accessible by the public but during our stay we only saw a few people, who were nice, mostly on weekends. There is a beach club two properties away for families but it was silent during the week and fairly quiet during the weekends. The sunsets from the shore or back of the house are amazing. There are a couple small local pizzeria/ grocery stores within walking distance where you can get groceries, coffee, wine, gelato, pizza (take away or dine in) which saves a trip (and cost) of Siricusa. Couple tips: bring binoculars, water shoes, mask and snorkel (if you do that), and some insect repellant if you plan on sitting out at dusk. The Sicilian mosquitoes can get hungry! Overall, I would recommend Casa Costa!
