Casa Marliana. Spacious two bedroom apartment with one of the most enviable views over the Ionian Sea in Ortigia, the Baroque centre of Siracusa. The apartment is cool in summer and there is air conditioning in both bedrooms and good through -draughts throughout. In winter, there is air heating in the bedrooms, heated towel rails in the bathrooms and a wood fire in the main living room/dining area. Roof terrace - flat on three floors. Sleeps four. We would ask guests to only smoke on the roof terrace.

Perfect Introduction to Sicily

  • 5 of 5

My husband , sister and I spent 5 splendid days in this lovely apartment. It is perfectly situated to walk anyplace in Siracusa and even more to enjoy the sound of the sea as you're falling asleep. The sunrise and sunset

from the terrace completes the picture . In addition,the house is directly across the street from a swimming platform - another plus .

What made the experience so special was our contact with the charming owner, Ann. From our first contact Ann was responsive and thoughtful. She sent us a guide of her favorite places in Ortigia and even arranged for us to be met at the airport . In addition, the property agent Enrico ( who has a delightful sense of humor ) was easily available even when we accidentally turned off the hot water!

This was our first trip to Sicily - I can't imagine a better introduction to this amazing country

A perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was everything we had hoped for - and more. The setting is sublime. The terrace has an array of very comfortable chairs that made it difficult to muster the energy to explore Ortygia. Tha apartment is well appointed. Lots of restaurants nearby and Ann provided a very useful list of suggestions regarding dining and activities. Her local agent, Enrico, was also very helpful, with the additional benefit that his office is close by in the event that one needed additional assistance (we did not). We would not hesitate to go again or to recommend the apartment to friends.

Wonderful home in beautiful Ortigia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Sicilian home. The property was very clean, updated and had a beautiful authentic feel to it. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the rooftop in the morning with the views of the Sea. The owner was very organised and attentive answering all of our questions and giving us tons of information before we arrived. Check in/check out was a breeze. The place is much bigger than we thought from the photos and is in an ideal location. If you go to Ortigia, you must stay here! My only complaint was that the hot water heater only holds enough water for a quick shower so you need to space out when everyone needs to get

Cleaned and ready for the day to allow for hot water for everyone. It was a minor inconvenience and we still loved the whole experience there.

Walk to the local daily food market, with a view of Mount Etna in the distance. Enjoy a cup of Cappucino whilst sitting in the shade on the roof terrace and then have a swim before lunch. Pop in to see the Caravaggio in the local church and after a delicious dinner at one of the many local restaurants, visit The Greek Theatre and watch a wonderfully dramatic classic play, sitting under the setting sun. Sicily is special!
