About this listing
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.

The apartment was really good and the location couldn't be better:) if you want to be in the center of Ortigia. Concetta is very sympathic, she helped us to park the car and find easilly the house
Logement très agréable et fonctionnel en plein coeur du centre historique de Siracuse et face à la mer.
Concetta nous a très bien accueilli et nous a laissé à disposition toutes les informations nécessaires pour le séjour.
Concetta est une femme très prévenante, soucieuse du bien être de ses locataires. L'appartement est très bien situé dans cette ville superbe ! les placards sont pleins, il ne manque de rien...Merci Concetta (peut etre prévoir une cafetière un peu plus grande ) ! c'était parfait
Ottimo luogo, accogliente e centrale.
The apartment was perfectly situated in the old town of Ortigia. Every morning we could go for a swim right across the street. Perfect for such a hot summer! The apartment is cozy and basic, but just enough space for making morning espresso and afternoon siestas. Otherwise most time is spent out and about exploring the old town. Good for a few nights stay. Communication with Concetta was always prompt and easy. She and her husband even came to pick us up from the bus station. Very kind hosts.
We are with 2 adults and 1 teen and we really enjoyed staying at this place. Its location was nice because it was very close to a swimming spot in sea. The sea was great as well, very warm water with beautiful fish in it. It was also close to the center of the city. Overall we couldnt have asked for a better location.
The hosts also gave us a kind welcome. They helped us find a parkingspot and they told us what interesting things there were to do around the neighborhood. They were very friendly and helpful and it was greatly appreciated.
Some points that we disliked were; The bedroom ceiling was very low and you couldn't stand in the room because of this. The bathroom was very small, the shower and toilet were too close together.
The airconditioning was a major plus. It made sleeping very pleasant. There were plenty of towels for us to use, and the owner even left some drinks in the fridge for us to drink. Overall we had a great time in Siracusa and we will definitelly be back one day.
È andato tutto benissimo. Concetta si è dimostrata attenta e disponibile. La casa è veramente carina,proprio sul lungomare di Ortigia, pulita e fornita di ogni cosa. É stato un soggiorno molto piacevole!
