Nous avons été reçu royalement par Mimmo et Elena : leur appartement est très bien équipé, très calme avec une jolie terrasse avec vue sur un jardin et sur la mer. Elena nous avait préparé de délicieux antipasti et le réfrigérateur et les placards contenaient tout ce qu'il faut (et même plus...) pour au moins deux dîners et tous nos petits-déjeuners. nous n'avons pas eu un tel accueil de tout notre voyage en Sicile. L'appartement est à un quart d'heure à pied d'Ortygie et du théâtre antique. Nous n'avons pas eu à utiliser notre voiture. Nous avons pu nous garer à l'intérieur de la résidence mais le parking à l'extérieur est facile et gratuit. n'hésitez-pas à découvrir le Riccio di Mare.
Ringrazio Elisabeth per la bella recensione. Elisabeth e Denis sono Ospiti molto cordiali ed è un autentico piacere poterli accogliere con amicizia. Sono lieta che abbiano apprezzato le bellezze di Siracusa e gradito gli assaggi di cibo siciliano condiviso con loro.
The Riccio Di Mare experience is excellent in every way. Elena and Mimmo were perfect and generous hosts. The apartment itself is huge, it has everything and anything you might need, for instance three ways of making coffee from instant, to pod through percolator, with the coffee, honey and milk supplied. As well as the generous supplies of food left for guests, Elena made plates of Sicilian vegetables to welcome us. There is a balcony to spend time, a stunning view of Ortigia from the bedroom window and access to the ocean for swims at the front of the apartment block. The place is a bit out of town, walkable distance though. And the bed is very comfortable, just top it off.
Огромное спасибо Елене и Доменико за оказанное внимание и гостеприимство. Отличная квартира, великолепная лоджия с видом на море и спальня с окнами на Ортижу. Особенно приятно было общаться с Еленой по-русски.
С наилучшими пожеланиями,
Ирина и Владимир
A friend and I stayed at Riccio di Mare for 5 nights at the end of August 2014. Anyone considering a trip to Sicily should start here. And by here I mean Elena and Mimo's place in Siracusa. It has everything you need for a wonderful stay: the Ionian Sea in your backyard (with snorkeling gear included!), a nice and comfortable apartment that feels like home, and a true loving Sicilian couple who will take care of you as if you were family (getting back home from a long day of exploring UNESCO World Heritage Sites and finding delicious homemade antipasti in your kitchen is simply priceless). One day, our car battery died and Mimo was there in no time to take us to a mechanic. Problem solved! Another day, the wifi just stopped working and in no time we had a new mobile hotspot. Problem solved! We are counting the days until we come back. Grazie mille Elena and Mimo.
From a gracious host to a great location, our stay at Riccio di Mare far exceeded our expectations. Elena and Mimmo met us when we arrived and provided all the necessary information we needed for our stay in the apartment. They welcomed us with a beautiful fruit basket, delicious salad and plentiful breakfast supplies. The apartment is even better than the pictures, beautifully decorated, very spacious and clean. The location was perfect for seeing the local sites and close to the train station for visits to neighboring towns. The private access to the sea was perfect, especially after a day of sightseeing. If you are visiting Sicily, you must visit Siracusa and stay at Riccio di Mare.
Elena and Mimmo are great hosts. The communication with them is easy and quick, you have a reply within few minutes. We couldn't meet Elena personally but she really took care of us and called us to know if we were comfortable. Mimmo is very kind and he gave us a warm welcome: some water, milk and an excellent fresh salad in the fridge! Regarding the apartment, it is really cozy and clean. It has all the utilities you may need and a lovely terrace which gives to the apartment a lot of natural light. Highly recommended!
The apartment is absolutely wonderful! Spotlessly clean, gorgeous views from both sides, and wonderful private swimming off the rocks below the apartment with sun until about 4pm in summer. Beautiful green terrace in the shade. It's a good 15mins walk to ortigia, but there is gelato on the way :) great welcome from the hosts who supplied us with everything we needed including a welcome wine bottle, delicious lemon sorbet, small home made dishes in the fridge and breakfast food for several days. Would gladly recommend to anyone!!
About the Host, Elena
I live in beautiful Syracuse, Sicily (Italy). I am a retired Teacher of State Secondary Schools. I am a married woman. I live with my husband Domenico (the second picture in my personal profile). I have a daughter (she is an engineer) and a son (he is a young lawyer). I am fond of animals, particularly dogs and cats. I also like cooking, reading, and photography. I love so much meeting new people and hosting them in my pretty "Riccio di Mare/Sea Urchin". I wish you can enjoy staying at "Riccio di Mare" exclusively for you ...no animals around and no other Guests, but you !!!
