About the property

Apartment in Siracusa, Sicily, Italy - Peaceful Location just a few meters away from the sea 4/6 sleeps (2 bedrooms)

The apartment offers a very elegant and comfortable accommodation. It is just a few meters away from the sea, where it is possible, in summertime, to sun-bathe on the rocks, to swim and deep-dive. The stable is situated nearby the Grecian Apollo's temple, the Duomo square, Archimede square, the Bellomo museum, the mythological Aretusa fountain, the characteristic market of Ortigia where you can walk through the picturesque colours, the typical perfumes and sounds of the genuine Sicilian life. In 20 minutes, on foot, you can also reach the archaeological museum Paolo Orsi, the Catacombe of S. Giovanni and the unforgettable archaeological park with the Greek theatre. Ortigia is 30km from Noto, 73km from Modica, 83km from Scicli UNESCO World Heritage sites with the finest collection of Baroque buildings in Italy.

About The Owner

I live in Sicily with my husband, my daughters live elsewhere to study. I like to do mosaic and ceramic and spend most of my time with these hobbies. My husband and I love nature and travelling around the world to get to know other cultures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'The location was right in the middle of Ortigia. We were able to reach the sea, the marina, shops, bars, restaurants, etc. within minutes. The air-conditioned apartment was a saviour, to overcome the heat of the day. The Kitchen was fully equipped and spacious, with a ceramic cooker and oven. In the bedroom the bed was extremely comfortable, with beautiful linen and indipendent air-conditioning. The lounge was huge and newly furnished with a table for six and a sofa. The Tv was a 32 inch flat screen HD (an unusual sight in an italian rented apartment). The owners met us at the bus station and were extremely helpful and friendly. One could not ask for more.' Tony and Jill.
