About the property

CASA NIZZA: 2 charming aparts

Two elegant apts have as their central focus an inner courtyard with a terrace overlooking the sea.

Whenever you leave home there is probably the unconscious desire to rediscover forgotten ancient roots and new emotions to feed your soul. The place to stay becomes crucial to find the magic we look for. CASA NIZZA is now a beautifully restored Palazzo where you can enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the surroundings. The two apartments recently renovated and decorated in bright colors, carefully chosen by the owner, make your stay pleasant without taking away the charm of a house that continually returns to its ancient history. They are situated on the ground floor and first floor of an old Palazzo of the 800 Century in Ortigia the historical center of Syracuse. Here the thickness of the past merges with the comfort due to the constant search of the owner to make your stay unique and unforgettable. The furnishings, in perfect harmony with the environment, stems from an ongoing study to make the space a continuous stimulus for the senses. These features have incited a known artist to choose it as her residence throughout the years she spends in the island of Ortigia. The wonderful location, the sound of the sea, the magnificent colors of the sunset and sunrise, the secular story that reigns within the walls of this house are for her a constant source of inspiration for her beautiful works.

All are equipped with air conditioning and Internet access (ADSL) to meet your needs . A small but lush common courtyard is ready to welcome you to relax. The large terrace on the top floor, reached via an outside staircase, overlooking the clear waters of the Ionian Sea. From here comfortably sitting on the garden furniture you can enjoy the breath of the sea and the multitude of colors of the coming evening drinking a good glass of wine.

The building is within walking distance from Forte Vigliena, which allows on hot days to cool off in the clear sea below and within minutes of restaurants, bars and shops. Find yourself in the old Jewish quarter of Ortigia a few steps from one of the oldest Jewish baths in Europe. Piazza Duomo and Piazza Archimede are just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The market of Ortigia is about a 10 minute walk

In the island of Ortigia you do not need the use of the car, as the island is very small and any place is within walking distance.

The owner who lives on site and speaks fluent English and Italian, is a lively person and very hospitable. If you want to meet interesting people or know where to eat, or explore the island Giuseppina will always be happy to advise you. Here you have everything - comfort, style, location and history

Beautiful apartment, Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I occupied 2 apartments in this lovely location in Ortigia. The apartments are spotlessly clean, well-equipped, and very comfortable. The owner could not have been more helpful in making our stay more enjoyable. Next time we will not rent a car, as you can walk everywhere from this ideal location.

Fabulous weekend in Ortigia!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the combo apartment and all of us agreed that Casa Nizza was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The location is perfect: Ortigia is fabulous, and this is one of the nicest parts of the island. It's quiet but very centrally located. You can hear the waves hitting the shore at night. The terrace is magical - the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the scenery. Giuseppina is a wonderful host and the property is lovely and very well equipped. We'd love to stay here again!

Wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

It is not often that I start off a review by saying the owner, Giuseppina, is a fantastic and gracious host and a lovely person---but it is true! The warmth, and dare I say love, was genuine and heartfelt.

If the Casa Nizza wasn't so grand, I would stop there. But it is a fantastic place. Small details that are normally overlooked are taken care of. A lot of thought has gone into the renovation. Everything from the art on the wall to the design of the bathrooms. And of course the terrace! Others have commented so let me say that the light works its magic differently during different hours of the day.

We stayed in the Combo during Holy Week and the weather was cool at night and then warmed up to nearly perfect temperatures during the day. My wife and three teenage daughters stayed in the Combo. The two apartments worked out well as we had our privacy. The location of the Casa is ideal. We explored the Jewish Quarter, shopped, attended church during Easter and ate at the myriad of fine restaurants. And my favorite painter, the wild man Caravaggio, even has one of his paintings nearby.

Parking was a bit of a challenge, as the island has restrictions about who comes and goes, but Guiseppina solved that.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

A stay to remember

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Painter's apartment, and it was every bit as charming as the photos. Opening my front door to the sea every morning was incredible. Casa Nizza is located only a few metres away from the best swimming place on the Island, and is only a short walking distance from the main square. Everything was within easy reach of the apartment. The only thing more charming than the accommodation was Giuseppina herself. She really goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome - including hosting drinks on the terrace - and to make sure they have everything they need. I can't think of anywhere else i'd rather stay in Ortigia, and will certainly be back if i ever have the fortune of returning.

Casa Nizza- a magic experience!

  • 5 of 5

.The location of Casa Nizza is perfect as it hugs the edge of the earth, the seas energy & sounds both soothing & alive. Walkable distance to historical treasures & culture, all kinds of restaurants, & fresh quirky markets.

The quality apartments are clean, comfortable, warm & welcoming, with everything needed available. Just like home....

Our gorgeous hostess Giuseppina is just a delight, her presence is accommodating yet discreet. English is no barrier & her knowledge of the area is abundant.

I would encourage & recommend Casa Nizza whole-heartedly to all I know.

Thank you Giuseppina, for an amazing memory. xx

Casa accogliente - piacevole soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Sistemazione ottimale nel centro di Ortigia per due famiglie che vogliono stare insieme ma godere della propria autonomia; appartamenti comunicanti e provvisti di un proprio ingresso separato ; curati e dotati di ogni comfort.Pulitissimi ed in ottimo stato.

L'appartamento più piccolo gode di splendida vista sul mare sia dalla giorno sia dalla camera da letto, molto luminoso.

Una segnalazione particolare per la gentilezza della proprietaria.
