  • 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."

Très bien !!

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est idéalement placé, à moins de 10min de la gare routière et aux pieds des ponts menant à l'île. Il est vraiment bien équipé et très propre: beaucoup d'ustensiles de cuisines, des condiments, un sèche cheveux, parasol, draps et serviettes très propres etc.

Alessandra et son mari sont très gentils, ils peuvent vous donner de nombreux conseils pour le tourisme.

Concernant les points négatifs évoqués dans d'autres commentaire, rien de bien horrible. En effet la terrasse n'est pas privative, mais nous nous en sommes servi sans problème. Le soir il y a quelques odeurs venant du restaurant en bas, mais étant donné qu'il y a la climatisation dans l'appartement les fenêtres restent fermées donc ce n'est pas gênant.
