As soon as we walked into the house, we knew we’d made a great choice. Not only was the apartment in a great location in Ortigia, Alberto was on hand to give us some really good recommendations for restaurants etc.
The house is literally 3 minutes walk from the daily local market where you can buy the most amazing produce such as ricotta, Italian meats, fresh fruit and veg then you can stop off for a little drink and fresh Frito misto in a cone - truly delicious.
Local restaurants are plentiful with choices ranging from pizza, pasta to more traditional Sicilian dishes. Great wine and of course limoncello (if you see it with mint then try it as it is fantastic).
In terms of the house, I can honestly say that Ginevra has thought of everything. We had all the household items we needed (hand soap, toilet roll, washing up liquid, washing machine detergent, bbq fuel, bin bags). Everything you could possibly want for a home from home.
It is possible to find free parking near the house, however if the ZTL is active it can be more of a challenge. We parked over the weekend in Talete and it was fine.
All in all we had great stay and would absolutely recommended renting this property.
This apartment is gorgeous, reflecting the owners' hard work and dedication to creating a space that is both comfortable and chic, a true 'home' in the Italian style. The apartment is spotless and equipped with everything guests might possibly need, as well as additional treats left by Marcella!
It is also in an ideal location for sightseeing, restaurants, shops etc.
Above all, the outside spaces are fantastic and where we spent most of our time when 'at home', relaxing and enjoying the lovely weather.
Many thanks Marcella, for your warm welcome and helping to make our Sicilian holiday
A true gem, which which we can recommend without reservation to anyone wishing to visit this area.
