We stayed for 9 nights in this house hidden from the bustle of the main street behind a large door in a courtyard.
It was an easy walk from the bus and train stations, which are in the same road.
Around it are good places to eat and drink and a good supply of shops and supermarkets.The owners gave us helpful suggestions.
It is a good place to be able to walk easily to most places of interest in Siracusa. We loved shopping in the market in Ortigia and using the well appointed kitchen to cook in. Because we are British the only thing we found lacking was a kettle for our morning cuppa.
The house is minimalist in style and we loved that.although we recognise that the staircase might prove a bit difficult for people who have mobility problems and would not recommend for them.
There is air-conditioning and fans. Dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, TV and systems for playing music on. There is also a toilet downstairs in the utility room as well as in the upstairs shower room.
Mosquito's are a problem sitting out on the patio at night and some got into the bedroom despite the netting over the windows, but apart from that we slept very comfortably in the large double bed.
We were sorry to leave!
This lovely apartment has been beautifully restored and is like a home from home. There is really little to fault. It is very private and unbelievably quiet at night, and yet not far from the bustling streets of Ortigia with its lively bars and restaurants.
The roof terrace is fantastic where you can spend the afternoon in the glorious sunshine, or having the first evening cocktail as the sun sets.
Barbara, the owner, is very easy going and was a pleasure to meet. She is very helpful and cares very much that your stay is comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The living area is large and comfortable. The main bedroom and bathroom are cosy as is the bed.
It is a bonus to have a washing machine too.
Thank you Barbara. We will recommend you and be back.
