About the property

This exclusive apartment is furnished with taste and attention to detail. It is located on the first floor of a palazzo in a prime location and has 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, storage room, studio, kitchen and lounge / dining room with terrace. During the renovation it was important to maintain the original substance. High quality and exclusive materials such as natural stone, terracotta, parquet, etc. have been used. Original ceiling paintings and ornaments are in perfect condition and create a particularly beautiful and romantic atmosphere.

There are many original pieces from scenographies of internationally known movies, made in and around Syracuse. The furniture is very comfortable and high quality. Bathrooms and kitchen are new and very well equipped. The picturesque terrace offers plenty of space and invites you to linger. There are only a few steps to Fonte Aretusa, Piazza Duomo, Piazza Archimede (Diana Fountain), Maniace Fortress etc.

Casa Marlene - Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my wife Shirley stayed for 1 week in Casa Marlene, Syracusa between 19/6/16 & 26/6/16. The Fabio and Emilie who look after the apartment were very accommodating and arranged to collect us both from Syracusa bus station by and take us both by taxi for the 5 minutes drive to the apartment location in Ortigia.

The location of the apartment is perfect for a holiday in Ortigia/Syracusa. It is right in the heart of a historic district and approx 150 metres from the Duomo and it's lovely piazza (very lively in the evening). Also, the apartment is just 100 metres from the sea front and the historic Fontana Artusa. We were informed by Fabio that the building in which the apartment is located dates back to the year 1699 which is amazing. It is very spacious with high ceilings and decorated in a very traditional Italian period style with antique furnishings to match. There are also two spacious bathrooms too and an additional walk in wardrobe room which was very useful.

The only slight problem is the low water pressure which we got used to. Apparently, the island of Ortigia has very low water pressure with it having old pipework in an ancient part of Sicily. We had some problems with Wi-Fi in the apartment too but Fabio purchased a router and installed it the next day which was good of him. However, we did receive a charge of 30.00 EUR for the Wi-Fi unit on departure which was surprising. Note also, that the electricity usage is not included. There is a metre reading at the beginning and the end of your stay and the usage is deducted from your deposit which is fine. For us it was only around 12 Euros for 1 week. Be careful to switch the hot water boiler off though each day after using it otherwise it will affect your total electricity usage during your stay.

The accommodation is very quiet at night. The large king size bed was very comfortable. The outside space is nice for breakfasts and relaxing after a day sight seeing or evening out. There are lots good restaurants in Syracusa & churches too. The market is about 10 mins walk and open every day close to the temple of Apollo. Fresh fruit, meats, fish, vegetables etc.... are all traded there by the very traditional & lively market stall holders....... well worth a visit. Also another 'don't miss' is the ancient Greek Theatre, Roman Ampitheatre, Temple Hieron II and Ear of Dionaissus (Cave). We very much recommend Casa Marlene and Ortigia for a holiday.

Wir waren sehr angetan von der wunderschönen Wohnung. Sie war mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. In der Küche waren alle Basics vorhanden, man konnte sofort loskochen. Das absolute Highlight war die Privatterrasse. Liebevoll mit Sukkulenten und Kakteen bepflanzt. Die Zimmer hatten jeweils einen wunderschönen Holzfußboden und antike Bodenfliesen. Es machte alles einen sehr hochwertigen Eindruck. Die Besitzer waren sehr freundlich und kochten sogar einmal Pasta für uns. Wenn wir wieder nach Syrakus kommen werden wir diese Wohnung wieder buchen.

Individueller Urlaub zum Wohlfühlen und Entdecken.

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschöne Wohnung mit gemütlicher Terrasse und Sonne bis in den Nachmittag mitten in der Altstadt.

Mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, tolle Möbel und Gegenstände, jeder Raum zum Wohlfühlen.

Vor der Tür ist man sofort im historischen Zentrum mit seinen vielen Gassen, es gibt unzählige Restaurants, Bars, um die Ecke vom Haus das Meer, immer wieder was Neues zum Entdecken... erholsame Tage und Abende ohne Auto möglich, mitten im italienischen Leben.

Der Frische-Markt ist nur ein Minuten zu Fuß entfernt und bietet für wenig Geld frischen Fisch, Meeresfrüchte, Fleisch, Wurst, Gemüse, Obst, Kleinigkeiten - einfach köstlich. Ab damit in die schöne Küche und dann genießen.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, man fühlt sich sofort wohl.

Absolut empfehlenswert!
