Adriana was a wonderful host. I felt like I know her for a long time.
The location was perfect, quiet by the sea but convenience to everywhere in Siracusa. I just loved her place, she had done amazingly with decorating all rooms. Especially staying the terrace and watching the ocean…it was so relaxing and could stay there forever! I miss so much the terrace. I definitely go back her place when I have a chance to visit Siracusa again.
Großartige schöne Unterkunft direkt in der Altstadt von Ortiga. Adriana ist eine supernette Gastgeberin und hat uns tolle Tipps von Restaurants gegeben. Schön, dass ihre Kinder auch da waren. Danke, alles war bestens.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Spectacular setting, historic home. Aperitivo on the private balcony was one of the highlights of our trip. Excellently located very close to the duomo and to everything Ortigia has to offer. Adriana and her kids were great hosts and we had very interesting conversations. Don't miss Adriana's market tour!!!
Es war ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt im Haus von Adriana .Wir hatten ein grosses Zimmer mit Terrasse auf das Meer.adriana ist sehr herzlich und hilfsbereit,ebenso ihre 2 grossen Kinder mit Hund und Papagei.wir werden wieder kommen.
Had a wonderful stay with Adriana, lovely room overlooking the water. Close to the beach and lots of restaurants. Adriana had some wonderful recommendations for us and was extremely helpful with any questions we had. Thank you for having us!
We very much enjoyed our stay in Ortigia. The old town is beautiful, Adriana's The house is extraordinary and fascinating, and our room was spacious with its own Shower room and balcony onto the sea. We would see people walk by and stop and look enviously at the house and it's garden area butting onto the road, and we would shake our heads at them and say unfortunately it is not ours!
Apart from the house Adriana was very welcoming and told us about live music in the town and invited us along on both our nights there. It made for a special stay and was not something we would have discovered without that local knowledge.
All in all a great place to stay!

I love the place where I live, and I love to share experiences.
I'm easy going and friendly. I like to have people around and mostly I like my home. As myself I've been traveling a lot,in Europe, the States and Asia, I wish other people to feel at home when they are here.
I'm mother of twins, coach, therapist, mental trainer and mentor.
During your stay you can make therapy, have a massage or a coaching session. You can combine holiday and wellbeing;-)
I love traveling, getting to know different cultures, architecture and interior design.
I love cooking, mostly here in Sicily, it's so beautiful to go to the market and pick up the best produces to prepare delicious specialities, sicilian, italian....thai;-) but not only.
I wish my guests 'experience' Ortigia, Siracusa and the south east coast of Sicily, I help them find the best places to eat, to listen to some music, the nicest spots to see, on foot, by bike, canoe or boat.... 'to feel the magic' of this place, enjoy their stay and spend a real, unforgettable holiday.
I'm an holistic therapist, you can have private stages, group courses, coaching sessions or a therapy. From this place you can relax and contemplate life as it goes on.
You can ask me to cook a typical sicilian dinner or to eat organic food, book a a market guided tour, or guided tours of the south east region and places around here, connect with interesting people. You can do art , be active outdoors, in the sea or enjoy peace and quietness.
To relax you can also book a session of RELAXMAN (see (website hidden)) and have a 50 minutes session of relaxing experience, 5 therapies and the equivalent of a night of sleep rest, all in one!
