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.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Concetta's place. It's cosy and very well equipped; Concetta and Lorenzo are unusually warm people.
We enjoyed the flat's location smack dab in the Ortygia, but far away enough from the touristic epicenter to be quiet (at least in winter) and also far away enough that restaurant prices don't have a tourist surcharge, as they seemed to a few blocks away. (Let me recommend the Ai quattro venti.)
Were we to return to Syracuse, we'd be sure to return to Concetta's.
A Window by the sea of ortigia is true! The house was in front os the sea, you can ear the sea all day. The place is wonderful and Concceta was so nice with us, when we arrive in Siraccusa she was at the station to pick us up and take to the home. In the pantry there was everything for breakfast!
It was a very relaxing experience in a beautiful place.
We had a very nice stay at Concetta's. Ortigia is a beautiful place to stay at. Concetta was a thoughtful and welcoming host. She left many things for us to have breakfast, which was so pleasant! The kitchen was well equipped.
For New Year's Eve, we crossed the street to go to a very nice restaurant. Ortigia is quite well situated to discover Sicily.
I personally didn't like the apartment so much though, but it's only my taste. The "window by the sea" was narrow and barred even if the view was splendid indeed. What I like the least was the bathroom/toilets place. After a shower, and even though we did draw the curtains, the room was all damp. Not pleasant at all.
In short, if you are like us, just searching for a place to stay not to spend too much money, this is definetely the place to be! Good value for money.
We had a wonderful time. The location is fantastic and the place is exactly as described. There is nothing wrong with the bathroom (as I see a previous guest complained), it's pretty standard. Our hosts even left us extras like bread and cakes!
We had a good time in Concettas apartment right in the middle of Ortiga. We decided our stay at very short notice, but that was no problem for Concetta. She and her husband were very helpful. Thank's a lot.
Concetta and her husband picked us up from the bus station and very nice and helpful. The apartment is cozy and very special and the view to the sea is amazing. We enjoyed our stay in Ortigia very much, thanks Concetta!
We stood 10 nights in Concettas place and enjoyed it very much. The view to the sea and the possibility to jump into the water right in front of the door. Concetta and her husband picked us from the bus station and we got a free sight seeing tour ;-) Also very nice was, that there was already some coffee and water and basic things for cooking, and fresh sweet oranges. Grazie Concetta!
We spent some great holidays at Concetta's place! The flat has a great view on the sea and it is well located at Ortigia. Concetta is very helpful and flexible, thanks for everything!
Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht. Sie ist ein orginal italienisches Erlebnis. Der Aufenthalt war sehr schön, besonders die Badestelle (Solarium) direkt vor dem Haus ist grandios. Concetta war sehr liebevoll zu uns und unserem Baby. Ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt.
