The Space

Our Foresteria is an intimate 2 Floor apartment that offer to the foreigner travellers ("forestieri" in italian) a personal hospitality in Siracusa.

A true Home away from Home.

The brothers Moncada, Francesco (the Architect) and Alberto (the Photographer) decided to transform this old house of 18th century with a contemporary touch and taste.

The travellers can experience a very special place, full of light in the legendary isle of Ortigia.
The building is situated in the area of Bottai, behind the Marina, in Via dei Cordari (Ropemakers), one of the oldest street of the city (750 B.C.) that still conserve the urban fabric of the anchient greek city.
A beautiful place to stay in the hearth of the old center of the city of Syracuse.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our little family had a great stay in F & Ms superb flat. Neat location, late mornings upstairs in the panorama master bedroom and lazy afternoon in the mild November sun on the terrace were hightlights of our stay.

    Francesco was very attentive throughout our stay and for any issue his brother Alberto provided first rate support!

    Thanks a lot for a great stay!

  • The apartment is quite smaller and older than it looks in pictures.
    Nevertheless we've been through a great vacation of 10 days.
    Ortigia is wonderful and the apartment is in an excellent position from which you can reach everything (restaurants, parking, bike rental, etc.).
    When we had a little problem with the curtains, Francesco's father solved it in a few hours.
    Recommended for a relaxing holiday.

  • Great apartment with a truly wonderful terrace. Very stylish and contemporary design throughout (although some areas are beginning to look a little frayed at the edges - the wood in the bathroom, for instance). A spacious and quiet place to stay, and that terrace is the ideal place to have a drink before going out for dinner. Thank you!

  • Loft bellissimo e ubicato in posizione meravigliosa! Anche più grande della impressione che le foto possono dare! Abbiamo pure avuto fortuna con il parcheggio 4 giorni su 5, che a ortigia è tutto dire :) Ci tornerò sicuramente!

  • The Penthouse is the perfect base to explore Ortigia. Me and my boyfriend did not have the pleasure to meet Francesco & Mafalda but Francesco's brother was lovely and gave us all the tips to enjoy our stay.
    We did not have the chance to eat outside on the terrace, but it's been a wonderful place to spend the mornings and the evenings.
    Highly recommended, looking forward to be back again!

  • Nous avons passé quatre jours dans cet appartement. Très bien situé, dans une jolie ruelle d'Ortigia, le logement en duplex est spacieux. Seul bémol: le propriétaire étant à l'étranger, c'est son frère qui gère. On m'avait demandé de donner des nouvelles 2 jours avant, ce que j'ai fait. Aucune réaction jusqu'au jour même où le frère m'informe qu'il ne pourra pas venir et que ce seront finalement les parents qui seront là. Le 3e jour il m'appelle pour me demande quand nous pensons quitter les lieux. Je dois lui préciser que nous avons payé pour 4 nuits!! Pas d'eau chaude en arrivant. Donc 2-3 petits couacs, mais rien d'alarmant. La salle de bains mériterait toutefois un petit rafraîchissement. Très bel endroit malgré tout, avec une terrasse extraordinaire.

    Response from Francesco/Mafalda:

    Désolé pour le malentendu avec mon frère. Malheureusement Les anciens clients ont éteint le chauffe-eau et nous n'avons pas remarqué. La prochaine fois s'il vous plaît nous en informer immédiatement.
    J'espère vous voir bientôt.
