L'appartamento è proprio al centro di Ortigia, ristrutturato da poco e confortevole (soprattutto per una coppia). Nulla da segnalare. I proprietari sono molto disponibili e prodighi di consigli.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour, Max et Iris sont des personnes formidables! Ils nous ont fourni de très bons conseils, nous ont indiqué les meilleurs endroits à voir ainsi que les meilleurs restaurants dans lesquels manger. L'appartement correspond en tout point aux photos, il est idéalement situé et très calme. Encore merci à Max et Iris et nous recommandons chaudement cet appartement!

Max è stato un host perfetto, molto disponibile ed elastico per organizzarci con il check in ed il check out e ci ha dato ottimi consigli per godere al meglio del nostro soggiorno in Ortigia!
Il monolocale è arredato in maniera funzionale ed è molto spazioso, ottimo per una coppia. Particolare da sottolineare: la temperatura all'interno dell'appartamento è magicamente inferiore (di molto) a quella esterna, un'oasi di sollievo dopo lunghe camminate estive sotto a quasi 40°, non abbiamo avuto mai bisogno di ricorrere all'aria condizionata.
Unico leggero aspetto negativo da riportare è la quasi totale assenza di campo per i cellulari all'interno (sia linea telefonica che internet), e l'inefficacia del dispositivo wi-fi fornito (problema che però a quanto pare abbiamo riscontrato solo noi, così ci ha comunicato Max).
In conclusione un'esperienza assolutamente positiva, consigliato!
We had a very nice stay in Ortigia, in the apartment of Max and Iris. It was very clean, and everything fitted the description on the site. When we arrived they picked us up from the busstop, as we didn't know exactly where to go.
A nice bonus was the bottle of typical Sicilian wine, and the water in the fridge, just so you didn't need to do shopping right away when you arrived. Thanks for a lovely stay!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Iris and Max's apartment. There is absolutely nothing that we would change. The apartment has everything you need and a very comfy bed.The apartment is in a perfect location--near restaurants, a small beach, shopping, gelaterias, and bars. Ortigia itself is quintessential Sicily and absolutely perfect. We spent three days there. We enjoyed taking the short bus/taxi ride to Fontane Bianche beach. We highly, highly recommend this beautiful studio apartment to anyone looking for a wonderful holiday!
Iris and Max were very welcoming and gave us some great advice for our stay. They even left us a bottle of wine and some water and snacks. The apartment is even more spacious than it looks in photos and very comfortable. It's in a great location, and we'd definitely recommend it!

About the Host, Max & Iris
Austrian by origin, Sicilian by choice. I really love Sicily and especially Syracuse: there is history everywhere, the nature (spring!), the sea, the climate.
I love to travel and explore new places. Greece and Thailand hold a special place in my heart. I am interested in history, arts and photography.
I also love outdoor sports and I can tell you all the good places in the area for running, biking and diving. I am a staunched environmentalist - things are not perfect here, but definitely getting better.
I have been working in the travel industry for many years in different countries and different fields. Only recently I have opened my own business as a private travel consultant for tailor made solutions for active tourism in Sicily.
Togehter with my husband Max we manage four properties. Our aim is to offer our guests a nice and comfortable place to stay at affordable rates. We really enjoy working with Airbnb - we have met so many nice and interesting people from all over the world! We love to share our insights, to tell our guest about our favourite places and are happy to help with any kind of information.
