The space

The apartment is in an ancient building recently restored in historical center of Ortigia, very near to Piazza Archimede and the Cathedral. Located right on the seafront, has three balconies with breathtaking views. In the morning you can make an biological breakfast in front of the sea, go down and get a nice bath to start the day, then you can enjoy the colors of the market of Ortigia or take a lovely walk along the promenade to the east, the castle Maniace, the fountain Arethusa and the Cathedral. Immersed in the light and silence, the house has everything you need for a memorable stay. (If you tend your ear , you can fall asleep, lulled by the sound of the sea.)
For those who love history, art and architecture, I will accompany you through the small streets of Ortigia to discover the many secrets of this ancient city has accumulated over centuries and millennia. For nature lovers, you can discover the enchanting beaches and beautiful places that offers our territory. It may also happen for music lovers, to spend an evening at home ,accompanied by the sound of the guitar .
There is a bathroom in the room for guests' use only. In the apartment there is a good wifi reception and is available.

L'appartamento si trova in un antico palazzo recentemente restaurato nel centro storico di Ortigia, molto vicino a Piazza Archimede e la Cattedrale. Situato direttamente sul lungomare, ha tre balconi con vista mozzafiato. Al mattino si può fare una colazione biologica di fronte al mare, andare giù e fare un bel bagno per iniziare la giornata, si può godere dei colori del mercato di Ortigia o fare una bella passeggiata sul lungomare ad est,verso il castello Maniace, la fontana Aretusa e la Cattedrale. Immerso nella luce e nel silenzio, la casa ha tutto il necessario per un soggiorno indimenticabile. (Se tendi l'orecchio, ci si può addormentare, cullati dal rumore del mare).
Per gli amanti della storia, dell'arte e dell'architettura, vi accompagnerò attraverso le stradine di Ortigia alla scoperta dei tanti segreti di questa antica città ha accumulato nel corso dei secoli e dei millenni. Per gli amanti della natura, è possibile scoprire le incantevoli spiagge ei luoghi bellissimi che offre il nostro territorio. Può anche accadere per gli amanti della musica,di trascorrere una serata a casa, accompagnati dal suono della chitarra.
