About this listing
I living since February 2012 in a new big house and the second floor is a nice mansarda room which I decided to decorate in an etnic style and to rent for nice guests. The main attraction in the room is the nice balcony with a nice sea view where I will put some chairs and a table where you can enjoy your breakfast or enjoy the sun if you want.
The house is a new residencial area, very quiet and directly to the highway exit. Catania and other cities like Ragusa, Noto, Taormina, Ecc...are very easy to reach by car without passing through the city center.
You can use kitchen and the three bathrooms...you will feel like home!
At 200 meters from the house there is a small shop where you can buy basic necessities, cigarettes or sip espresso.
A 2 kilometers there is a large shopping mall, where you can go shopping at very cheap prices. Also, Nearby there is a good restaurant near the sea, where you can taste dishes based on fish or just a pizza.
A few kilometers you will find a dining booling and a water park (open only in summer), for fun lovers.
The bus stop is at 200 meters, in front of the small shop where you will find the tickets. The nearest pharmacy is less than 600 meters.
For everybody: take off your shoes when u go to the upper floor..I will give you nice sleepers
Vincenzo and Valentina received us as if we were friends for along time: smiles, good advices for sighseeing' parking and have pleasure in town. They supply usfor breakfast even if it was not booked .the room was a good place to be and feel at home. The location is just outside syracuse and enables us to go and come to and from easily by car.Immediate surroundings is less interesting' except the area called Belvedere where we could find good pubs a nd restaurants even on Easter day. Worth seeing : syracuse, noto and nature up to Avola
Very nice host! The house is brand new and well located (very quite and peaceful place)
We had a great stay there, thanks to Vincenzo's attention. Syracusa is not very far (10min by car)
I recommend this place (for people who have a car)
Grazie per questo soggiorno ;)
We had a good time at Vincenzo's place. The house is large and new, so is the room. Vincenzo is an easy, friendly and communicative guy. He lives at his own floor in the house, and uses his own bathroom. You hardly know he is at home, but he is there when you have questions.
The house is located in a new neighbourhood, there is not much to see of do there, but there is a small supermarket at 5 mins walking. Also there is a very large commercial center within a 5 minute drive by car. For sightseeing and restaurants, you should go to siracusa, a 20 minutes drive by car. The house is close to the highway, so interesting places like noto, cava grande and the necropoliti are quite easy to reach. For sandy beaches, you should go to fontani bianchi.
Vincenzo`s house is very modern and spacious. The room we stayed in had a big comfortable bed and also a balcony. Vincenzo was a very kind host, he recommended us authentic places to have dinner in Siracusa and prepared breakfast every morning. The house was very clean. A very good choice to stay at if you come by car!
Vincenzo gave us a great home, he takes the time to explain what there is to do in the area, gives its best places to eat in Ortygia, ... In short, he cares for you. The room is very large and the sea is beautiful. The neighborhood is very quiet. So this is a great location for visiting the nearby Syracuse. Jessica
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Vincenzo (4 nuits). La maison est très belle, neuve, et bien située. Vous serez près de Syracuse (10 min en voiture), de Noto, de la réserve naturelle de Vendicari etc. Il n'y a aucune difficulté de parking, on peut se garer partout dans la rue. La maison est entourée d'un agréable jardin.
Nous nous sommes immédiatement sentis chez nous. La chambre, sous les toits, est très agréable. Elle est décorée avec goût et simplicité, et l'équipement était complet : télévision, ventilateur, petite table avec chaises. Et de surcroît une petite terrasse très sympathique donnant au loin sur la mer. L'insonorisation est très bonne, nous avons très bien dormi les 4 nuits.
La salle de bain est vraiment très belle et grande ! Il y a un bain, des toilettes, une belle vasque etc.
Vincenzo nous a laissé utiliser sa cuisine (très belle et très fonctionnelle).
Enfin, Vincenzo est un hôte extraordinaire : il est très sympathique, il a un très bon anglais, et nous avions de bonnes discussions avec lui. Il nous a prodigué de précieux conseils sur ce que nous pourrions visiter. Et en cas de problèmes, il est toujours présent !
En conclusion, le rapport qualité prix est excellent et nous recommandons grandement la maison de Vincenzo si vous passez vers Syracuse.
Notre séjour chez Vincenzo était d'une part notre premier stop en Sicile et d'autre part notre première expérience AirBnB. Et Vincenzo a placé la barre très haut grâce à son accueil excellent, ses petits soins et ses conseils touristiques.
Petit déjeuner bien garni, chambre bien meublée et très propre, salle de bain personnelle de grand luxe, tout est positif chez Vincenzo. Même ma vue (limitée) sur la mer est chouette. Il s'agit d'une maison de ville en banlieue de Syracuse, proche des grands axes et proche du centre ville.
About the Host, Vincenzo
Since February 2012 I live in a new house which is too big for us so I decided to rent a room for special guests.
The room has a confortable sleeping couch and a wardrobe to hang the clothes. You will have your own bathroom on the first floor ( the house is on three levels with a big garden) and you will share the big kitchen and the living room with us. You will get your own copy of the key to be indipendent.
The house is outside Siracusa city center and directly near to the highway exit ( Siracusa Nord/Belvedere), so that for people who are coming by car is easy to reach other cities like Noto, Catania, Ragusa, etc..without entering the city center and avoiding the daily traffic of the city
I am 32 years old .I both love travelling and like speaking Spanish and dancing Salsa, I like cooking and drinking something with friends.I used to host a lot of foreign people since I have friends from all over the world, so I'm used to get to know new people.
My motto: travelling is not that expensive as people think, you just need to know the right people and the Air BNB!
You can either choose to share your travel experience with us or to get the key of the house and enjoy your holiday in peace. I would like to share something with you anyway if we are at home.
