  • A Warmer Winter

    "My wife and I stayed at the condo for two whole months between January and March while the UK was under flood water. We stayed last year too when Britain was frozen solid with arctic temperatures. This year the temperature during the day never dropped below about 14C and we came away looking like a couple of pandas where our sunglasses left us untanned. The condo has two excellent bedrooms - we slept overlooking the rocks and the cormorant colony. We went to bed to the moonlight on the water and and woke to the sunrise. We shopped for our major supplies at the supermarket which delivered within three hours; smaller purchases we made from the bakery, the butcher and the alimentaria down the road. We visited the classical sites, walked the path along the coast and visited the ancient city of Ortigia. But our favourite inactivity was to have our lunch on the wonderful balcony running round two sides of the apartment - fresh baked bread, cheese, anchovies, wonderful fruit and Sicilian wine - then pretending to read our Kindles while drowsing in the sunshine. The property was certainly up to the description in the listing. ln fact the only drawback we found was a tendency for the power supply to give up if we overstrained it with oven, microwave, washing machine, heating, computers, immersion heater, etc. Then I had to dash downstairs and throw a switch to restore the supply - not too difficult and not often. Giulia was only a phone call away and was quick to resolve any initial queries we might have had. The wi-fi worked and so did Sky on the TV. Simone and Monika, the Italian/Polish couple who looked after us during our stay were ever helpful and Monika kept the apartment clean as well as improving my wife's Polish. While this time we didn't eat out very much, there are plenty of ristorantes, trattorias, hosterias, pizzerias in Ortigia; via Cavour is particularly blessed in this respect (unless you choose to eat out on a Monday evening when many eateries are closed.) There is a Mexican pub within 200 metres which is good and welcoming. This is a good place to stay. We have spent several months here and will almost certainly come again in the future. Thank you Giulia."
