A real Home Away ...from home :)

  • 5 of 5

We (a family with 2 girls of 4 and almost 2 years) stayed for a week at Sebastiano's place. It was a great stay! It has everything you need, even for small kids. The house is very clean, bright and aery. The location couldn't be any better - very close to Ortigia. We enjoyed the farmers market that was so close. The cheese, the bread, fresh vegetables and fruit, fresh fish, mmmm.. all sooooo good! We even found a kids park close by.

We went to Fontane Bianche beach and to Avola Marina. And we enjoyed Cavagrande reservation and Avola antica.

I hope we will go again to Casa de Beatrice - it was such a nice time!

Wonderful Stay In Siracusa!

  • 5 of 5

We staid at Sebastiano's apartment for twelve days, and loved it! It is just as described and pictured, light and airy. It's two blocks from Ortygia, the endlessly quaint and fabulous old town. The scrumptious daily market is right there, and we cooked and ate in a lot. The bus and train stations are just up the road, for day trips to wonderful sights to the north and south. Sebastiano was terrific, there for you but not in your socks. We recommend the place highly.

Great Value, Spacious Apartment, Trustworthy Host!

  • 5 of 5

We (a couple) stayed at this apartment in Siracusa for nearly 2 months and 20 days between October and December 2013, while I was working at the local state archives. This place is highly recommended for anyone wishing to holiday in Sicily - in fact it is perfect.

First of all, the rates of rent are good value - particularly for anyone wishing to stay for a longer period, or wishing to visit in off-peak season.

Second, the apartment itself is great. It is very spacious (85 square metres), light and airy, and pleasantly decorated. It is also well provisioned with all the things necessary to cook, and it has an internet connection, a large fridge-freezer, and a washing machine, amongst other things. The bed is quite comfy, and there is potential for as many as 6 people to stay there, such is the space. Aside from the big double bed, there is a bunk bed (perfect for families with young children), and a fold out sofa bed. The only advice I would give is make sure to buy a mosquito spray, as there can be some in the evening if you open the windows.

Thirdly, the apartment is well located on an excellent street. All the local amenities are nearby, such as the supermarket, the ancient market of ortigia, the pharmacy, the gelateria, excellent pizzeria's, and other useful shops. It is also near to the ancient part of Siracusa - Ortigia - and we often took evening walks around the old streets as it just 10 minutes walk away. For those wanting good food, the local market of Ortigia (5 minute walk) provides fresh and cheap fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables, and spices.

Fourthly, Siracusa is a good choice - not only for Ortigia - but as a base for visiting other places in Eastern Sicily. Noto is 30 minutes away by train, Catania only 1 hour 15 by bus. The bus station and train station are just 10 minutes walk from the apartment. It is also easy to visit other towns such as Ragusa and Taormina by train. It really is a perfect location, and also 25 minutes away from the beach by bus.

Fifthly and importantly, the owner of the apartment (Sebastiano) is a kind, generous, and trustworthy host. He lives in Siracusa himself, and is easily contactable if you have any issues or problems. In fact, he helped me out a lot during my time in Siracusa - even organising a hospital appointment for me, and driving me there, when I needed a small operation on my leg. That was really very appreciated. He really is a great person, and it is a perfect apartment for a holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to live in my house for your study period. It 'been a real honor to host you and assist you in times of trouble. Maybe I'll wait for new research in the future or come on holiday in my villa to the sea Arenella. I really hope that my future guests are just like you for long periods. Nice to meet you. Sebastiano. CIAO

Fabulous apartment! So much better than any hotel!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 6 year old son stayed at Sebastiano's apartment for 3 nights. We wished we had stayed longer. First Sebastiano and his wife greeted us and explained everything about the apartment then assisted us with parking for the car. They were so warm and welcoming.

The apartment is huge. It is so much better than the photo's. It was bright, spotlessly clean and quiet. Sebastiano assisted me with with a personal issue as I required a document to be printed and faxed to Australia urgently. This was not a problem.

Siracusa is so underrated. The town is magnificent and the apartment is a 2 minute walk to the island of Ortigia in Siracusa. We will be back and will only stay with Sebastiano. Meeting people like Sebastiano make a holiday experience perfect! Thank you so much for everything!!!

An excellent place to stay in Siracusa

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well situated a few minutes walk from the island of Ortygia. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who was most helpful. The apartment itself was as we expected, clean and well equipped. We would be happy to stay there again if we return to Syracuse and highly recommend it.

A wonderful holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the bus station in Syracuse from Catania. The bus station is a short walk away from the apartment and the railway station is also nearby. We were in contact with Sebastiano and he met us to give us the keys and show us around the apartment. We have stayed in many holiday apartments and we were very impressed by the standard of this one. It was very clean and spacious and well equipped. It had everything you could need and wi fi was a real bonus. The apartment is in a great location. It is a short walk to Ortegia and there are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants in the vicinity. There is also an excellent market nearby with lots of fine fresh produce.

Sebastiano was a very helpful host. It was so nice to arrive and find that water, fruit, coffee, milk and some biscuits had been left for us. A really thoughtful and kind gesture. We also had the pleasure of meeting Sebastiano's charming daughter when he brought over clean linen and towels.

We had a brilliant 10 days in Syracuse. It is a fascinating place with lots to see. it is also possible to take trips by bus to other places. If anyone wants to visit, I would recommend this apartment without hesitation,

Owner's Response: Sono stati degli ospiti speciali per me e per la mia famiglia. Mi fa piacere che abbiano gradito e apprezzato le attenzioni che riserviamo a tutti gli ospiti. Personalmente è stato bello il rapporto di amicizia che si è venuto a creare anche se per un breve periodo. Sebastiano e Beatrice.

'La Casa di Beatrice' is an affordable and comfortable apartment located in the center of Siracusa – only a few meters from the historic city center of Ortigia and a few minutes walk from the bus and train station.

The spacious apartment is 85 square meters and is located on the second floor in a recently renovated building. It is ideal for families up to 4 people, couples, friends, singles. On request I can add another 2 places. For children, we have available a cot, high chair, stroller, etc.

The kitchen is simple but complete, with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. You will find a full stove, a microwave oven, a fridge with a small freezer, dishes, tablecloths, etc. In the bathroom there are towels, hair dryer and shower shampoo. Both the kitchen/living room and bedroom are fully airconditioned, there is a practical bathroom with shower, bidet and washbasin. There is also a small laundry room with a boiler and a washing machine.

All beds are equipped with sheets, blankets and comforters for the winter.

The location is central, on the main street of Corso Umberto I, just a few steps from the island of Ortigia. On Oritiga, you will the historic old town and the bustling market with the characteristic sights and smells of Sicily. It is also in walking distance from the Greek Theatre, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Archaeological Museum Paolo Orsi, the Catacomb of St. John and the Shrine of Our Lady of Tears. In short, everything is easily accessible.

Nearby, you will find the beaches of Arenella, Fontane Bianche, Arenella and the beautiful protected marine area of Plemmirio, where it is possible to go snorkelling in crystal clear fresh water. The beach resorts are easily reachable by bus.

How to reach the apartment:

If you arrive by plane (airport of destination: Fontanarossa Catania), we can arrange for a direct pick-up for a surcharge of 50 € per car (up to 4 people). Otherwise you can use a bus from Catania to Siracusa railway station (last stop), and then walk (10-15 minutes) or take a taxi from the train station to the apartment. We recommend the bus company INTERBUS, but you can also take a look at the website AST for other hours.

If you arrive by train, take a walk (15 minutes) or a taxi from the train station. You can also jump on the shuttle bus operatied by AST to Ortigia and ask for the stop in the middle of Corso Umberto.

If you arrive by car, you can park for a fee in the street below the apartment (Corso Umberto I), or chose one if the side streets for free parking.

Be aware that the island of Ortigia is a ZTL (Limited Traffic Zone), so it is easiest to arrive there on foot, given the short distance.

The neighbourhood is very safe, and it is full of bars, restaurants and pizzerias.

For more details, don’t hesitate and email me. We are at your disposal!
