The apartment is on the ground floor of a historic building on Crocifisso Street, a street close to the picturesque Cathedral Square and other tourist attractions. The total area is about 60 m2 .

The apartment has a large living room with sofa bed, dining table, kitchen, bathroom with shower and apart, toilet with bidet. The island of Ortigia is connected to the city of Syracuse with a bridge and has at its entrance a large covered car park (called TALETE) very cheap and useful, allowing you to leave your car and reach the heart of the island (where the home is located) in less than 10 minutes by foot. However, in the streets of Ortigia you can park your car while respecting the signs and municipal rules. For those arriving from Catania airport it's possible to go to Syracuse by bus service and the terminus is just a few hundred meters from the island of Ortigia. The advantage of staying in this open space is that it is located in the heart of the island , in one of the most famous and popular streets, a step away from all the restaurants, tourist shops and only 200 meters from the rocky beach ( solarium ) formed from wooden platforms mounted on the rocks for a fast swim without leaving the city life.

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!
Très bon accueil par Paolo (le père de Valentina) qui nous a fait une présentation de l'appartement à notre arrivée. Celui-ci est conforme aux photos et est très bien situé juste à coté de la place Duomo di Siracusa. A recommander :)
Absolutely wonderful place, as was Valentina and her father. The street in which the flat is situated on is perfect, a tiny little Italian cobbled street full of life and a minutes walking distance from the main square. We couldn't fault this place, nor could we fault the area - full of helpful, wonderful and friendly people.
We hired a car which was ideal, this have is the freedom to drive to the local supermarkets (far from walking distance, lidl and famiglia) and the opportunity to drive to the beaches, which again would have been hard to get to without the car. There is parking just as you come into ortigia - €10 for 24 hours, very safe and around a 7min walk to the apartment, note all parking on the side roads next to the apartment is residents only.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay, and this place comes highly recommended. Thanks for having us!
Siamo stati accolti da Paolo, il papà della proprietaria, che ci ha dato diversi consigli e suggerimenti sulla zona di Ortigia e dintorni. Alloggio molto accogliente e pieno di ogni comodità, wifi potentissimo e cucina spaziosa, purtroppo unica scomodità è il fatto che non si possa parcheggiare vicino casa per via della zona ZTL e che si debba quindi trovare un posto auto fuori Ortigia.
Tout s'est très bien passé. Comme prévu nous avons été accueillis par le père de Valentina qui nous a fait visiter l'appartement et s'est assuré que tout se déroulerai bien durant notre séjour. Il s'est très bien fait comprendre en anglais et nous a expliqué qu'il pouvait être rapidement sur place en cas de soucis.
L'appartement, fort charmant, était conforme aux descriptions et sans mauvaises surprises. Seul inconvénient, il y a peu d'aérations, ce qui le rend un peu humide et sombre. Heureusement, la clim a permis de brasser l'air.
En bref, notre séjour s'est très bien passé dans l'appartement de Valentina qui est sis au cœur même d'Ortigia et que nous recommandons fortement.
Wonderfull place, right in the center of Ortigia in a lovely street that isn't too crowded or noisy considering the place where it is. The house is just as it is on the photos it's wonderfull for a couple!! Clean and pretty!
Paolo, Valentina's father, was very helpful and we're just sorry not to had the possibility of saying goodbye to him in person! Valentin please tell your father that the place were we left our car when he was with me is the best place to park in all the Ortigia island, he wasn't sure about it.... I parked there all the week and it was just fine.
We loved our stay and the places we visited in Ortigia and also all around the island... Thank you!
