Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I live in England but spend as much time as possible at my apartment. It is home from home and has all the necessary amenities for a wonderful holiday. I am trying to learn Italian as there is less English spoken here than other parts of Italy. I live amongst Italians and have made many friends here. I especially like it when my neighbours and the local shops, including the market, recognise and acknowledge me every time and make me feel so very much at home.

Why the Owner Chose Syracuse, Syracuse, Italy:
I first visited Siracusa in 2001 and did not know about Ortigia but when I first drove over the bridge into Ortigia I fell in love with it. It is wonderful, full of beautiful old buildings Ortigia oozes history and it never ceases to amaze me. You live amongst real people, doing their daily work. The fish market is real and alive and just sitting at a local coffee bar you can capture every aspect of local life whilst watching the world go by. There is something to suit everyone, eating a meal in a romantic setting overlooking the sea, swimming from the rocks, shopping in designer shops or the market, relaxing on a beach or visiting fabulous historical sites. Horse drawn carriages, cobblestone streets where you can wander for hours and lovely churches to admire. This is real Italy.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
My bedroom and lounge overlook the sea and I love to watch the sunrise in the mornings and eat breakfast on my terrace whilst still being able to see the water. To be able to shop at the market on a daily basis for fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and to banter with the shopkeepers whilst being offered samples of their foods. To walk to the rocks and swim for an hour or two and if it is too hot to go down again in the evening for another swim. There are also many historical opportunities ranging from the Greek ampitheatre, even watching plays there to the catacombs and fabulous archeaological sites both in Ortigia and within walking distance. There is also Interbus direct from Catania airport to Siracusa which runs several times a day and is only €5.70.
