Comfortable little haven

  • 5 of 5

Carla and Francesco were extremely welcoming hosts. The apartment is delightful, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. The location is fantastic for exploring Ortygia and the rest of Syracuse; the local electric bus stops a few metres away, and cost only 50 cents. We used the apartment as a base also to explore other towns nearby (Noto, Catania, etc.), using bus and train, which worked very well. The little bar around the corner has excellent coffee. We shall be back, and are already recommending the apartment to our friends. Thank you Carla and Francesco for a lovely stay.

Heel gezellig, Francesco was ontzettend aardig, prachtig uitzicht

  • 4 of 5

Het appartement heeft echt sfeer, ligt ideaal aan zee, 50 meter verderop kun je de zee in, bushalte naast de deur. Het is met liefde ingericht. Een klein minpuntje was dat iets schoner had gekund. Al met al een aanrader!

Séjour très agréable, Ortigia est une merveille.

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très agréable, une pièce salon et petite chambre en mezzanine au dessus, une cuisine et une salle d'eau confortables, les fenêtres donnant sur le front de mer, avec la musique des vagues.... Quelques passages de voitures mais on oublie vite car l'appartement est très bien situé, à deux pas de Piazza Duomo, ou de Fontaine d'Aréthuse et tous les palais admirables à voir ou à visiter. Les propriétaires Carla et Francesco sont absolument charmants (corbeille de fruits à l'arrivée, boissons), très disponibles à conseiller et à vous aider dans vos choix de visites. Une bonne base arrière pour les visites de la Sicile baroque et de ses splendeurs. Parking à prévoir à 1 km plus loin vers la nouvelle ville, en passant par le front de mer.

Vi salutiamo e rimaniamo con la speranza di rivedervi in un prossimo futuro. Un forte abbraccio Carla e Francesco

Excellente situation

  • 5 of 5

L' appartement est très bien situé, en bordure de la mer, à l'extrémité de la presqu'île d'Ortygie que l'on peut visiter à pied (c'est une belle ville). L'appartement est bien équipé . Carla et Francesco sont sympathiques et disponibles. Un arrêt de bus tout proche permet de se rendre à Syracuse (sites archéologiques, églises...)

Lovely little studio in Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 5 nights in the apartment and Carla and Francesco were extremely kind, generous and helpful.

The apartment is well situated and everything in Ortigia was easily accessible. We also walked into the city which was very easy, though not comfortable in the heat! Buses were available, but we enjoyed the walk. There are many lovely bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. We would love to return here as soon as we can! Thank you Carla and Francesco!
