Lovely villa with great views over the sea and Ortygia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is modern, stylish and clean, and had some amazing views over the sea towards Ortygia. Tony is a great host, always on hand to help. It is a short drive into Syracuse, and there are a number of great fish restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk. There is a nice quiet sandy beach at the end of the garden and an absolutely beautiful beach “, fine sand, surrounded by cliffs, about a 5 minute walk away. All in all, a great stay...

A modern oasis with a timeless view

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house. Everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. The house was lovely, clean and spacious having exactly what you needed and everything worked perfectly. Air conditioning, wifi, tv with original language channels. A private cove for swimming connected to a sandy beach along with an outdoor terrace to die for. No need to leave the house unless you wanted to. Tony, the owner was an exceptional host and just a phone call away if we ever needed anything. We loved it so much we extended our stay. This is the place to stay if your travels take you near Syracuse.

Views outstanding!

  • 4 of 5

Once you find this apartment, you will love sitting on the deck looking over the bay to Siracusa. Tony has redesigned a beautiful little spot. Everything was provided and the inside of the apartment very clean. However, this unit needs maintenance. A taped toilet seat, outdoor cushions stained and old, stored broken furniture on side deck, broken door handle, do not get a five. The view however is priceless and swimming in a small cove by the apt ..lovely.

Fabulous setting and accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a blissful 11 days in this stunning apartment which offers an incredible view of Ortigia (the old town of Siracusa) and the bay. The spacious veranda tastefully filled with cacti, palms and flowers has a variety of spaces to suit everyone, both shaded and in full sunlight, of which we were lucky enough to experience plenty during our stay. The double hammock is particularly delightful! The property itself has steps down into the sea (past some magnificent banana trees) and two minutes down the road a secluded sandy beach awaits.

The apartment itself has been beautifully designed by the owner architect Tony; both he and his partner Alessandra are extremely helpful, charming and hospitable, attentive to any needs. It is modern, comfortable, well equipped and well looked after and some quirky and fun features such as the Star Wars pin ball machine, give it a unique touch! You can even admire the view of the bay and Ortigia with Mt Etna behind, whilst lying in bed - a wonderful way to wake up in the morning!

A 10-15 minute drive from Siracusa, the immediate area has several good restaurants (including one more or less across the road), most of which offer great views alongside tasty seafood and lively atmospheres created by locals. La Greca, the local shop has a good range of antipasti, cheese and meats as well as fresh fruit and veg, meaning you don't have to venture far if you just want to enjoy the sun and relax!

It's an easy drive to the motorway and the property is very well placed for visiting Siracusa, Noto, Catania, Taormina, Etna amongst others.

We would thoroughly recommend staying here and can't wait to return.

Great appartement, beautiful view on Syracuse, direct access on the see, very kind and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful appartement with a very large terrasse and a incredible view on Syracuse. Direct access to the see and very quiet place.

This is a great place to visit this beautiful region, and Syracuse is like magic (7 km)!

Tony is really benevolent and helpful He advised us about great things to do in the region that are not in any guidebook. I strongly recommend this leasing.

Thanks Tony for welcoming us so nicely in your beautiful apartment, we had a great time in Syracuse!
