We highly recommend this place. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the apartment well equipped and very quiet, the location perfect for exploring the old town or getting about in the new. No hesitation in recommending it.

  • 5 of 5

"This was a wonderful place to stay for a few days, in a perfect location because it is east to find and get to by car and then situated really at the gateway to the island of Ortigia. Alessandra and Renato were so nice and helpful and the apartment is charming and quiet (as described). This stay and the surprising island of Ortigia has been a real highlight on our trip to Sicily this year.

Thanks very much Alessandra and Renato."
