Sicilia Bella!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Sicily many times for vacation and visiting family, but this was our first time staying in an apartment. The owners of the apartment, Giancarlo and his father, Luigi, were both lovely. Prior to our arrival, Giancarlo answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was always very helpful. Luigi greeted us on our arrival to the apartment, showed us around, explained everything to us and even left us some local almond sweet treats which were delicious and very much appreciated. He even came back later in the day to take my husband to help him get a parking pass for our rental car as parking is very difficult in Ortigia. As for the apartment, it was clean and very comfortable, big enough for my husband and I and our 13 year old son for our 2 week stay. The kitchen was functional and nicely stocked with the essentials needed and everything worked well. There were plenty of towels and linens that seemed to have been pressed, definitely a very nice touch. The bedroom was spacious and airy with a comfortable bed and our son slept on the pull out sofa bed with no complaints. There is an air conditioner in both the bedroom and main living space, both worked beautifully which is a must as it is very hot in August and very much needed. The apartment is centrally located and an easy walk to everything. This was a wonderful stay overall and we would love the opportunity to stay again in our next travels back to Sicily. Thank you Giancarlo and Luigi.

Una bella esperienza

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo avuto modo di scoprire le bellezze di Ortigia grazie anche alla posizione ottimale della casa del Sig. Luigi ; centrale, silenziosa, graziosa, completa e funzionale....... dopo alcune ore ci si sente come a casa propria; Il sig. Luigi è stato gentile ed assolutamente disponbile con noi ! Un consiglio : se soggiornate ad Ortigia per alcuni giorni, è meglio utilizzare il parcheggio Talete, comodo e sicuro, faccendo un abbonamento. Un caro saluto al Sig. Luigi e forse ....un arriverderci !

Soggiorno perfetto

  • 5 of 5

l'inserzione rispecchia totalmente la posizione dell'appartamento e l'accoglienza del Sig. Luigi è stata perfetta.

L'appartamento è l'ideale per una famiglia di 3/4 persone e si presenta ordinato, pulito e ben organizzato.

La zona notte, nel periodo in cui siamo stati noi, risultava un po' umida per il fatto che aveva piovuto molto

nei giorni precedenti e quella zona dell'appartamento, essendo interna, non viene battuta dal sole.

Problema risolto con le pompe di calore.

La posizione dell'appartamento permette di fare passeggiate attorno all'isola di Ortigia, patrimonio dell'umanità

ed è posizionata vicino al mercato quotidiano dove si possono acquistare frutta e verdura fresca di ogni genere,

rigorosamente locali, ma soprattutto il Pesce freschissimo per il quale il costo è veramente a portata di tutti.

Unica pecca è la ZTL, che non permette di parcheggiare l'auto vicina ma risolvibile con l'acquisto di un abbonamento

settimanale al costo di 30€ al parcheggio Talete distante 750 metri ca.

In conclusione, il soggiorno è stato eccellente e questa struttura la consiglio vivamente a tutti.

Un caro saluto a Luigi.

Ortigia un gioiello da visitare.

  • 5 of 5

La casa di Giancarlo è molto carina. Tutto molto pulito. Punto strategico per visitare l isola d Ortigia a piedi. Ringrazio il signor Luigi per la sua disponibilità e per i dolci veramente buoni. Consiglio a chiunque volesse trascorrere dei giorni ricchi di cultura e di relax questa location. A presto Sicilia.

Appartement superbe en plein cœur d'Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par Luigi, le père de Giancarlo. Avant notre arrivée il avait réglé le problème du stationnement , ce qui nous a facilité le séjour.Il a été de bon conseil chaque fois que nous l'avons sollicité.

Le logement était propre, très bien agencé, décoré avec gout et dans un endroit calme .

A noter la literie extrêmement confortable !

Nous avons pu visiter, en toute tranquillité, Ortigia, le site archéologique, la ville de Noto entre autres.

Nous espérons pouvoir retrouver l'appartement de Giancarlo si nous revenons à Siracusa.

Encore merci à Giancarlo et à Luigi!
