Thank you

  • 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.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a very, very nice time in this apartment while we visited Siracusa and Ortigia. This unit is spacious, comfortable and in a terrific location on the beautiful and charming island of Ortigia. Lia and Salvatore could not have been nicer or more accommodating to us during our stay in their property. The apartment is in a quiet courtyard which is off of a nice street. A grocery store is close-bye and there are many outstanding restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

One suggestion for Lia and Salvatore: please buy a small microwave for your guests. We could have used one on several occasions. Other than that, thanks for your outstanding hospitality.

Thank you Rosalia and Salvatore for your kindness, we had a wonderful stay in Siracusa! The apartment is pleasant, quiet, clean and very well located to discover the beautiful Ortigia and only few minutes are necessary to discover all the small streets.
