situé dans la ville de syracuse a environ 10 minutes à pied de l'ile d'ortega (quartier sans charme) le studio est assez petit et sombre (pas de fenetre) avec un coin kitchenette dissumulé. la salle de bain est assez grande. c'est suffisant pour 1 ou 2 nuits mais pas beaucoup plus. nous y étions en avril donc pas de probleme de chaleur.
il y a une petite cour interieure pour dejeuner c'est assez agréable.
Salvo et sa femme habitent juste a coté donc c'est assez pratique pour echanger et profiter de leurs conseils. Ils nous ont prété 2 vélos pour nous rendre a une plage a 12km et c'était tres sympa.
Salvo was the perfect host and we loved his little hideaway just blocks away from Ortigia. He made an effort to make sure the two bicycles he offered had the right air in the tires and got us hooked up with the internet with a little plugin websquare which he buys a simcard for. Apparently having monthly internet is expensive in Italy or maybe because the season was winding down. He also turned us on the the club Naka on Via Cavour in Ortigia where the locals jam Thursday night through Sunday night, that was one of the favorite spots of our trip, since we're from New Orleans and love live music. Check out (website hidden) for live New Orleans music, community supported radio! Ignore the sourpuss with the negative review, the place locks up just fine with steel gates, and yes you will hear interactions of the local from the balconies in the courtyard, it's part of the charm. The great bonus was the washer which saved us from having to find a laundromat. We loved the place and would love to come back and stay longer and would recommend it to anyone!
We enjoyed our stay a lot at Salvo's apartment. He was very helpful and supportive and even picked us up from the bus station with his car.
The apartment is located in a residential area, just walking distance from the attractions of Ortygia. As two bikes come with the apartment it was very easy to get everywhere quickly.
The apartment is small but very cosy and it offers everything you need even a washing machine, a hair dryer and an electric iron. It also has a little patio with table and chairs which is comfortable for having breakfast or dinner.
As the apartment is located in the backyard you do not hear any noise from the traffic. Sometimes you can hear the neighbors chatting in the morning. This might be bothering if you like to sleep very long, but we actually enjoyed this as authentic Italian atmosphere. The apartment is nicely cool as it is sheltered from the sun.
We can clearly recommend Salvo's apartment.
Soggiorno fantastico! Ottima poisizione della casa e Salvo è davvero eccezionale.
La casa è piccolina ma ha tutto ciò che serve (e anceh più, considerando le racchette, l ombrellone a disposizione degli ospiti e, soprattutto, DUE BICICLETTE!!). La posizione è ottima per frequentare sia Siracusa che Ortigia. Salvo è simpaticissimo, disponibilissimo, e dà ottime dritte su posti dove mangiare e uscire.
Insomma, se state pianificando un soggiorno a Siracusa, questo è il posto dove andare!
The apartment was well located just 10/15mn walking outside the historical center of Ortygia and the central station, and Salvo was very helpful, lend us 2 bikes if we wanted, gave us of a tour of the area and recommanded us a great place for delicious and cheap pizze! ^^
The apartment was basic (especially the kitchenette) but cosy, the bed was really comfy and the patio much appreciated. Everything was very clean on our arrival and we really enjoyed our stay!
