Treat it as you would do with your own house!
The house is part of the ancient fortress of Ortigia, as such it needs and deserves respect...
We had a nice time at one of Adriana's apartment in Ortigia. The view is absolutely stunning. The apartment is well equipped, though not ideal for travelers who wish to cook home meals. There is however a very good selection of restaurants (we tried one of Adriana's recommendations and were really happy).
Note that the bathroom is equipped with 21st century shower and bath....unfortunately we did not succeed in setting up the shower correctly (digital mode), which was a bit frustrating...
Overall a nice stay.
The location is perfect, although the apartment was a bit of disappointment, namely, there was no beautiful terrace there. You walk into the apartment directly from a public promenade. So, so.
Adriana hat sich bemüht unseren Aufenthalt angenehm zu gestalten. Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich. Die Aussicht ist wunderschön, das Appartement liegt am Lungomare.
We had an amazing time in Syracuse. It was a real highlight our 5 weeks in Europe. Adriana and her daughter Larissa were terrific hosts - very welcoming and helpful. We caught up for coffee and chats a couple of times and learnt a lot about them and the area. Syracuse is a must see - particularly the old city of Ortigia, where the apartment is - and it's the best location, overlooking the water. Passers by often commented to us that we had the best location, not to mention a beautiful apartment! Thanks Adriana and Larissa. We'll certainly be recommending you to our friends.
We were pleasantly surprised with this property. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting outside watching the world go by and the incredible sun sets. the only fault was the Turkish bath not working (would have been nice to know this beforehand). Location was in the best part of town, bed was very comfy and the property was very unique and peaceful.
Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Adriana but was very good at communicating when needed.
Would highly recommend this property and the wonderful Syracusa!
Abbiamo passato una splendida settimana in questa casa che inserisce elementi estremamente curati in una struttura tipica di ortigia.
Fantastica la posizione, in piena zona pedonale, a due passi da tutto e con una impagabile vista sul mare. Tutti i passanti hanno invidiato i nostri aperitivi all'aperto.
Come scritto sul sito non c'è una vera e propria cucina, ma con un minimo di pazienza siamo comunque riusciti a cucinare di tutto (anche il pesce del fantastico mercato) sulla piastra.
Adriana è stata perfetta, nonostante il nostro arrivo sia coinciso con un momento per lei quantomai caotico.
Consigliatissimo a chi vuole vivere al meglio il vero spirito "isolano" e non cerca una sistemazione appartata.
appena potremo, torneremo a trovarti. Grazie !!!
The apartment was in a great location with fantastic sea views and people watching opportunities of an evening. Everything was in easy walking distance.
Overall, we had a great stay at the apartment but it didn't quite meet our expectations in some areas. The kitchen consisted of a plug in stove that would trip the electrics if you used both stoves at once. There wasn't any worktop space and washing up had to be done in a tiny bowl in the bathroom. The only utensils provided were basic knives and forks so really restricted what you could prepare and cook.
The shower was good but unfortunately the whirlpool bath was also broken which was disappointing.
The listing says you have wifi but we felt that was misleading. Adriana says that you have to go to her terrace to use it but failed to give us the login and other people were staying there, so we felt we would have been intruding.
The listing has a lovely picture of a seafront terrace- this is actually Adriana's terrace. The apartment has a similar view but doesn't look quite so picturesque with the plants and pergola.
The listing also says breakfast is included but you have to pay extra for this- we were more than happy to get some fruit from the market though.
As a host, Adriana was welcoming. The other reviews led us to believe that she may be able to contribute more to our stay with recommendations etc. but we were left to our own devices- again we were more than happy to find our own way, it was just different to our expectations.
Saying all this, we had a fantastic time and with a few improvements it would have been perfect.

"Non invidio a Dio il Paradiso perché sono soddisfatto di vivere in Sicilia"
amava dire l' imperatore FEDERICO II passeggiando nei suoi giardini di limoni e ammirando il mare....
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!
