A PERFECT NOVEMBER MONTH

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The view of the sea and the harbour from the terrace of this apartment made our holiday. We ate on the spacious terrace nearly every night and the sunsets were always a delight. We were around the corner from the central Piazza del Duomo and close to all the best restaurants, and yet it was wonderfully quiet because we were so high up. Our beds were comfortable, the kitchen was easy to use and everything worked well. There are about 70 not too steep steps up to the apartment and access to it is through a floor owned by our landlords, brothers Stefano and Claudio - an unusual arrangement, but it felt absolutely OK almost immediately. Stefano and Claudio were terrific and couldn't have been more helpful. Anything we needed was provided immediately plus they were both really nice. We had a wonderful time.

PERFECT APARTMENT - 5*

  • 5 of 5
Our little family (me, wife to be and and our 8 month old son) stayed in this lovely place during the months of May and June 2012 - it was an adventure of a lifetime and made even more fantastic by this lovely apartment.
We really can't recommend it highly enough, Stefano the owner and Claudio his brother responded to our every request - not that we had many (the fridge broke down and a new one was provided within a day, the internet connection occasionally failed and was fixed right away)
The terrace views are amazing and you have it all to yourselves! - Only you have to walk up 69 steps to get to the apartment but it is so worth it. We managed with a baby!

To access the apartment you have to go through the apartment below, which feels strange at first as someone may be in residence - but you soon get used to it.

The bedroom was a good size and the kitchen was well kitted out with everything you need to cater for yourself - and with that fish market on your doorstep you have to make use of it.
The bathroom was also good - no problems with a shower and the obligatory Italian bidet thrown in for good measure
A/C provided in both living room and bedroom worked a treat.

The pictures are exactly how it is.

Tip - we drove, so had a car, and there is no parking close by but you can park free on certain roads over by the Talete car park, its only a 10 minute walk.

Deservedly five stars.
