Excellent! 4.5/5 -

design house on the sea with great views of the Bay of Syracuse
average rating of 4.5 based on 8 reviews

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.

Winter in Sizilien

  • 2 of 5

Die angemietete Ferienwohnung ist so wie beschrieben, das gesamte Umfeld nicht. Die Ferienwohnung ist in einem Haus mit 9 weiteren Wohnungen die zum Zeitpunkt des Urlaubs alle nicht bewohnt waren und teilweise in einem desolaten Zustand sind. Der Hausflur / Innenhof wurde wohl seit längerer Zeit nicht mehr gereinigt. Überall liegt Müll herum. Die Bauschäden am Haus und an der Anlage sind rundherum sichtbar. Hier ein Müllhaufen, dort ein Haufen Bauschutt oder Berge von Laub. Der Spielplatz ist nicht nutzbar. Es gibt keinen direkten Zugang zum Strand.

Das Bild setzt sich aushalb des Hauses auf der Straße nach Syrakus fort: wohin man blickt Müll, Hausruinen oder Ruinen von verlassenen Fabrikanlagen oder Gewerbebetrieben. Die alte Innenstadt von Syrakus ist mit ihren schmalen Gängen zwar malerisch aber leider in großen Teilen verlassen und bietet ein marodes Bild. Natürlich gibt es hier und da einen Lichtblick z.B. mit den zahlreichen, zum Teil innen sehr schön restaurierten Kirchen oder altgrichischen Mauerresten im gesamten Stadtgebiet. Das angebotene Essen der verschiedenen Restaurants ist oft stark gewöhnungsbedürftig und meistens zu teuer.

Fazit: Die Ferienwohnung ist zu teuer, der Urlaub war sein Geld nicht wert.

Un elección acertada.

  • 5 of 5

Buscamos un lugar desde donde seria fácil explorar la parte sureste de la isla de Sicilia y estuvimos muy satisfechos con este apartamento que tenía vistas preciosas de la bahía de Siracusa con el Etna como telón de fondo. La terraza da al apartamento una sensación de amplitud y la proximidad al agua es todo un lujo.

Imaginamos que en temporada alta las carreteras alrededor se pondrán muy pesadas por la cantidad de tráfico que soportarán pero fuera de temporada el transito es fácil.

Après un accueil très sympa par le propriétaire, nous découvrons l'appartement conforme à l'annonce. Il est vraiment très confortable, son immense terrasse ,avec une vue tellement belle, est très bien aménagée. Nous avons passé 15 jours dans ce lieu merveilleux et c'était délicieux.
