Its a while since we stayed in this apartment, but it was such a great experience that I think it is still worth sharing. My husband and I spend a month here with our then 9 month old girl. We live in Denmark so Sicily is a great place to go when its getting cold at home.
The apartment was a perfect size for us - and the huge terrasse with its great views and lots of sun was perfect for a november stay. When the sun left the streets below we could always go 'home' and enjoy the sun on the terrasse.
We thought that the place was even better than it looks on the pictures. Stefano and Claudio were really great hosts and very helpfull with everything. It was no problem that we had to pass through their hallway in the apartment below to get to ours - just added to the homely feel of the place. Also the number of steps to get up there are easy to manage if you are just averagely fit.
We spend a lot of time just strolling around in the streets of Ortigia with the babystroller and enjoyed the splended views, the architecture and the beautiful narrow streets. It ads to the experience that there are so few cars in the streets. And lots of nice cafees and restaurants.
The dailey marked became one of our favorite places to shop for great fish, vegetables and cheese. The baked ricotta is something that we still talk about.
All in all a great experience to stay in this apartment. We give it our best recommedations.
