In the heart of Ortigia, the window of my ground floor house is by the sea you cannot only admire ... If you want to have a swim, just wear your swimming suit and go on the Vigliena ancient fort!
You can decide to have breakfast either in the kitchen or sitting in the living room with the window by the sea. In this room there is a sofa (double) bed, but you can even decide to sleep on the nice loft where you have two more beds.
You can walk along the Riviera di Levante (East coast), the Holy Spirit Church, until the Maniace Castle and from there visit the rest of the island.
How to reach the apartment...
If you are coming by airplane (destination airport: Catania), the best way is to use a bus from Catania Airport to the railway station of Siracusa (last stop), and then a taxi from the railway station to the apartment (10 minutes). The recommended bus company is INTERBUS, but you can also have a look at AST website in case the time table is not matching your needs.
If you are coming by train, the best way is to take a taxi from the train station, it will take around 10 minutes.
If you are coming by car, please be informed that Ortigia is a ZTL (Zone Traffic Limited), and that you cannot enter by car during the following days/time slots:
Friday --> from 9 PM to 2 AM
Saturday and (public) holidays --> 4:30 PM to 2 AM
Sunday and (public) holidays --> from 11 AM to midnight
La casa es muy acogedora y tiene vista al mar. Concetta es una excelente anfitriona, que nos ha ido a buscar a la estación muy amablemente. Alojarse en ortigia es lo más recomendable para conocer siracusa. Muy recomendable lo de Concetta!
Abitazione molto simpatica, corrispondente a quanto illustrato. Padroni di casa molto gentili ed efficienti.
Perfetta per una coppia.
Purtroppo il cattivo tempo ci ha penalizzato.
Ottimo punto di partenza per la Sicilia barocca. Ortigia splendida, vale da sola la vacanza.
Se avete un auto occorre un poco di pazienza per il parcheggio.
We stayed in Concetta's appartment for two days in October. Overall it was a good experience.
What we liked in particular:
1) kindness of Concetta + husband, they picked us up from the station. It was a warm welcome.
2) centrality of the apartment is great, everythin in walking distance, besides that it is located in a rather quiet area of the Ortiga
3) the window to the sea and the short distance to the beach area
4) some books (even english) are provided in the flat
What we didn't like:
1) no WIFI
2) bathroom and in particular the shower its doing its job, but it isn't a pleasure to shower
3) the cleanliness of the apartment wasn't bad but also not quite good. In particular dishes and pans in the kitchen were not clean
All in all we'd come back a second time.
Conchetta made us a very warm welcome and waited for us at an Parking place, that she has been reserving for us. The appartment is well equipped, perfectly situated in the old town of Siracusa. It is a little narrow, but good for a couple. The view from the window is wonderful!
This is a small and simple, but really nice apartment right at the sea and close to touristic highlights of Ortygia. Since there are windows to different sides, you get fresh air at night. Also, at night there is almost no traffic on the streets so it is quiet when you want to sleep. The owner picked us up at the bus station in Syracuse and drove us to the apartment and hat alreday stocked the fridge with ice tea and fruits - that was great! For cooking you have all the devices needed. We really recommend this apartment to every couple visiting Syracuse!
L'appartamentino é il Luigi idéale dove soggiornare ad ortigia, giusto davanti al mare e centralissimo, à pochoir passi da tutti i luoghi più famosi del borgo. La s'ignoraient concerta si é dimostrata ospite capace, consogliandoci a perfectionné sulla geografia di siracusa. Casa pulita e accogliente, sicuramente da consigliare!
Concetta hat uns extra einen Parkplatz freigehalten, was Samstagabend auch notwendig war.
Die Unterkunft liegt sehr schön in der Altlast von Ortigia - direkt am Wasser und hat trotz der alten Bausubstanz durchaus Charme.
Einziger Nachteil: Die Unterkunft ist nicht leise, da die Straße direkt am Haus vorbeiführt.
Sono un'insegnante in pensione. Mi piace molto viaggiare. Adesso nel tempo libero mi dedico ai nipoti, ma appena abbiamo l'occasione io e Lorenzo ne approfittiamo per partire!
