"Everything was really nice. Fantastic location, good kitchen and really appreciated that staples such as olice oil, salt and pepper etc, were provided. Needed to speak Italian to communicate with representative who showed us the house. The only negative was street noise from revellers at night, when the windows were open."

  • 5 of 5

"Once or twice a year I take my mum for a trip abroad. This year I choose this apartment on the island of Ortigia, Syracuse. We were very pleased with the apartment and once we had learnt to use the lock on the front door we were away. As we arrived in Catania we phoned the key holder and then phoned again at the apartment door, we were met within 5 minutes and paid the last of the money collected the keys and had a brief chat. Mum took the main bedroom and I slept on the sofa bed in the other room, which was very comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were very well equipped except for no kettle, so vital to the English. However the electric stove bought a pan of water to a very quick boil. There is a very nice mini supermarket at the bottom of Via Roma, a 5 minute walk away, where we bought food and water. The tap water we were told was not totally drinkable. The mini supermarket sold two litre bottles of water for 40 euro cents, the cheapest I have ever paid for bottled water, they also sold Parma Ham at a third of the cost in London. Just up from the supermarket was Le Vin de L''assassin Bistrot where we had two lovely meals. Also 100 metres away was Taverna Sveva or Sueva where we had two good meals let down by indifferent service as well as menu prices being increased on the bill, €12 on menu €15 on bill. The location of the apartment was wonderful, I could hear the waves through my window as I awoke in the morning. The walk into the centre was always on the sea wall, so absolutely beautiful and the other side of the island was only a minutes walk away as well. I would very happily return to this apartment, the location and price was superb, we had a very enjoyable holiday. Michael W...."

  • 5 of 5

"Very good location. Very clean and confortable, amazing view, surroundings full of history. Just two steps to Castello Maniace, Fontana Aretusa and Piaza del Duomo. Good pizzerias and tratorias arround. A little noise from the street, but you can close the window and sleep well. The access by car and tha parking are a little difficult in Ortigia. we spent a wonderfull holliday in this location."

  • 4 of 5

"Un appartement qui s''est avéré agréable, car il est remarquablement situé, et calme. En revanche, l''absence de radiateur a fait que nous avons eu un peu froid, mais il faut dire que nous sommes venus en février. Le contact avec la propriétaire a été très cordial. En revanche, la personne chargée de nous accueillir s''est montrée plus qu''expéditive, à l''arrivée comme au départ. Cela ne gâche pas un séjour, mais ce n''est pas toujours agréable."

"Très bien situé à la pointe d''Ortigia. Appartement un peu sombre avec un reste d''odeur d''humidité (peut être n''avait-il pas été loué depuis plusieurs mois). A recommander toutefois.

Parking de la ville Talete ( Lungomare di Levante) est très commode."
