Grazie Mille Maria Teresa

Your stylish and oh so comfortable apartment made our stay in Suite 18 extremely memorable. Congratulations on presentation and cleanliness of the apartment - a home away from home. Watching the fishermen and passersby from your balcony was an absolute delight - and a photographers dream. You have made such an impression! Communication, organisation, friendliness, restaurant recommendations and places we should visit were outstanding. Maria Teressa, we cannot praise you highly enough and recommend you to prospective renters. Your details will certainly be passed on to our friends in Australia.

Fino a quando ci incontriamo di nuovo

Ortigia Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in this lovely apartment. Maria Teresa was a brilliant host from start to finish, and she should be congratulated for the very high and stylish standard of the apartment. 2 excellent shower rooms and a very comfortable bed. We used the balcony constantly and there is always something of interest going on! The apartment is in a very good location and we would definitely recommend it.
