Wonderfully spacious place within the heart of Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for eight days in early February. It kept all the promises that are made on the website: it is elegant (the art work is quite stunning), comfortable, flooded with light, has everything a traveller might need, and is wonderfully situated close to the Duomo, the Fontana Aretusa, the Lungomare, the Palazzo Bellomo, the Museo del Papiro, the Fontana di Diana, the market, and many more sights. Ortigia itself with its narrow streets, decorative balconies, and surprising palazzi is, of course, a sight in itself. It's only a few steps to the supermarket Gusto and to a whole array of restaurants, each serving delicious foods. -- The apartment itself is very generously supplied (there even was some glue!), is very clean, and two French doors admit a lot of light into the living room. Most impressive is the fact that one does not feel cramped in that generously large apartment; even the kitchen gives you enough elbow room to make more than just the coffee and boiled eggs to which we limited ourselves. -- Our hosts were most caring and gracious; they ensured that we were picked up at the bus terminal when we arrived and arranged a taxi for us when we left; and Salvatore came by on one day to see that everything was functioning well (it was); in between we were in touch by e-mail, which Lia always answered very quickly. We could not have asked for more. We most enthusiastically recommend this apartment and our hosts to anyone who wants to spend some time on Ortigia.

LIGHT FILLED, LARGE, COMFORTABLE. EXCELLENT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed this apartment. Stylish and roomy, lots of natural light, attractive furnishings and decorations. Everything I needed to live as a native was provided. I would rank it at the top of all the places I've rented in travels abroad.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so very helpful and very kind.the apartment was so bright and airy and has wonderful space. It is situated in a perfect location,close to all amenities and within a very short walk of the coast.what more could anyone want.we only eat in once, as restaurants so very tempting, but the kitchen was very well accessorised and cooking for several people would have been easy.

Well located and quiet apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was clean, quiet and well located. It was a comfortable space. We were able to walk to everything and in fact, there was a charming restaurant right across the street from the property. The grocery store is a half block away. Salvatore, the owner came and picked us up at the bus which was very kind saving us cab fare. He did a quick walk through with us when we arrived.

We were a little disappointed that the owners contract with the art folks wasn't in effect. Since the apartment was billed as an 'art gallery' we were expecting a warm decorated space. Another small thing was the owner requested a cash payment on arrival which was not made clear prior to us renting the space. Typically, when I've dealt with VRBO, they use my credit card for rental, so we were surprised that we needed to go to the bank next day for money. Not a big deal, but it should be stated ahead of time.

I would recommend this property for those seeking a simple, quiet and convenient accommodation.

Tasteful, spacious apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Lia and Salvatore were the perfect hosts, meeting us at the train station and giving us a nice overview of the apartment. They have also provided a very useful compendium, with maps and suggestions. The apartment is spacious and very tastefully decorated - the perfect base to explore beautiful Ortigia. There is a small grocery shop at the end of the street that has all the basics as well as a selection of prepared food that you can takeaway. Many bars, cafes and restaurants within strolling distance. Syracuse train station is also within walking distance (about 20 mins) which we used to travel to Noto for a day trip. The apartment is blissfully quiet despite being centrally located.
