Interaction with Guests
I love to give suggestions to my guests about restaurants and places to visit. I'm always internet connected and I will answer as soon as possible!
Among the many attractions of Ortigia point out the weekly market of Sicilian typical products at the old market site at the entrance to the small island. Not to be missed and reachable by foot in just five minutes from my house!
It is forbidden to smoke in the House. It is recommended to dispose of trash in the appropriate bins in neighboring municipal square, leaving the kitchen in order and to limit water consumption, which in Sicily is even more valuable than elsewhere. For any problem not having fear to call and seek a solution together! Remember that the fixed costs include the use of electricity, water, bed linen and towels and air-conditioning. Are called cleaning costs but include much more!
Nous avons passé 2 nuits chez Valentina, l'appartement est dans une belle rue de Syracuse en plein centre. L'appartement est bien décoré et agréable à vivre. Merci à son papa pour son accueil.
The place was simply amazing! Everything clean and cosi, lots of space and right in the centre of Ortigia. Valentina and her father were very nice people, giving us a warm welcome!. I totally recomend this place as I am planning to come back! Thanks Valentina.
Communication with Valentina was great from the moment of booking until our check out. She was even nice enough to help with recommendations while we were visiting. The apartment is amazing! It is very spacious and cozy and is on the prettiest street (no exaggeration!) in Ortigia. Minutes walk from the beach and close to everything else there is to see. Apartment was clean and well prepared for us. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to others!
We had a wonderful 4 nights stay in this apartment - it is a beautiful space with lots of old features and high ceilings. The street is lovely and very central, and Ortigia is a beautiful place to spend a few days. Valentina's father was very helpful and flexible with check-in/check-out. Grazie mille!
We spent 3 nights in this beautiful typical Syracuse apartment. Valentina's father was so kind and flexible with us. We highly recommend you this nice flat if you want to really enjoy Ortigia!! Thanks again Valentina.
Valentina fue una excelente anfitriona, dándonos muchas y buenas recomendaciones en nuestro viaje por Sicilia. El apartamento, por otra parte, es absolutamente encantador, cómodo y céntrico. También su padre, Paolo, nos ofreció una calurosisima bienvenida. Gracias a los dos de todo corazón!
This is a perfect location. The block is like a little village within a village, yet it feeds right into the Main Street and the duomo. (Great gelato place right before you reach duomo). We were able to drive to end of block to drop luggage and then found a free parking spot. Apartment stays very cool and is probably perfect for summer. All the arrival and departure stuff was very easy. basic but Cute place, and a bargain. Kitchen was minimally stocked for cooking. Definitely for someone who can climb the high design stairs to loft bed, which was very comfy and firm. We loved the town and this is an economical way to visit.
