About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Apartment Aretusa is an exclusive property situated on the seafront of the island of Ortigia, in the heart of historic Syracuse. It is located just a few steps away from Fonte Aretusa, Castello Maniace and spectacular piazza Duomo. Wonderfully restored from the stables of a prestigious baroque building, the apartment retains its original architectural features where antique vaults, soft curtains, armchairs and sofas in grey and beige blend in perfectly with its surroundings. In this large open-plan area, furnished with style and elegance, every attention has been paid to detail to create a pleasant atmosphere of refined intimacy. The location is perfect for a romantic holiday among the wonders of Ortigia. The alluring alleyways, with their baroque buildings, characteristic boutiques, traditional restaurants and fashionable cafés of this vibrant town, are certainly worth exploring. Apartment Aretusa is also an ideal base for visiting the other charming baroque villages in the Val di Noto and the beautiful natural scenery of south-east Sicily.

The apartment encompasses 80 sq. meters and accommodates up to three guests. The open-plan space offers an elegant living area with a single sofa bed, a king-size bed, a large bathroom with Hydro-massage shower, and a nicely equipped kitchen (stove, oven, coffee maker, and small refrigerator).

Included in the rental price: Internet, final cleaning, linens and towels, twice weekly tidying up, electricity (up to 140 kwh/week), gas, cot (upon request)

Available upon request at additional cost: Extra maid service, bike rental, car rental, transfers

Syracuse – one the most beautiful cities on the Mediterranean Sea – is situated right on the coast facing the sea. It is rich in history and monuments and expresses the whole range and cultural complexity of Sicily from prehistory up to present days. Cultural events take place all the yearlong but the classical plays of the Greek tragedies – staged in the ancient theatre of Syracuse during the months of May and June – have international fame.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

I was meant to do this a while a go but like always there is never enough time.

Me and my boyfriend had the most amazing week in Ortigia back in September 2015. The apartment is simply beautiful. Its got a WOW factor and its got everything you may need. Although it doesn't have private outside space there is a table and chairs that you can take outside. We had breakfast outside every morning.

There are so many nice places to visit but i would definitely recommend to see volcano Etna and Riserva Naturale Cavagrande del Cassibile.

I would recommend to take some warm clothes and sensible foot wear for going up to volcano as it gets really cold right at the top.

Riserva Naturale its closed but we (like everybody else) climbed over the gates and walked down. Its a long way down and it feels much longer way up but it is definitely worth it. Water is a bit cold but after a long way down the rundown path you can't wait to get in the water.

There are a lot of restaurants in Ortigia. The one right next to the apartment is very nice but i would also recommend Regina Lucia and Per Bacco.

Ortigia is a beautiful place and i would definitely recommend visiting.
