We loved this property. Everything is brand-new, beautifully designed and decorated, immaculately clean, and equipped for every need. The linens and towels were so fresh, the A/C worked like a dream, the Wi-Fi worked seamlessly, lots of hot water, new appliances, comfortable furniture, and parking was a breeze (right in front of the flat). There is a lovely open piazza a few meters away where we played soccer with our son, and lots of close shops for food, coffee, etc. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the center of the old part of Ortigia, but we took a taxi home one night and it was very inexpensive and quick. Santi and Simona were communicative, prompt, and incredibly helpful and generous (they brought us a bottle of wine, which was much appreciated!) giving great recommendations for what to see, places to eat, etc. They even made a special note to wish our son a happy birthday during our visit! We would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend it without hesitation. Thank you, Eleven, for a wonderful stay in Siracusa!
Truly a spectacular spot. From the dining room window, you can see out over the sea, and from the terrace, a wonderful view of Mt Etna, and Catania beneath in its shadow. The apartment is modestly furnished, has comfortable beds, and is whisper quiet at night. Perfect place for a restful sleep. The beach below is a mix of sand and rock....and ia beautiful. Bit of a climb to get back, but well worth it. Private, quiet, and with clear clear water. The shower is fantastic. Large, with a great rainfall head...very comfortable. The only downside is that the place tended to smell of open drains throughout our stay. Not likely much the owner can do to mitigate this...it is what it is, but just know the scent is unpleasant. Not overwhelming, but unpleasant. It's also quite a drive to a supermarket, so stock the fridge well when you arrive. All in all, a wonderful place to relax, and we found it to be a good base for Catania, Siracusa, Ragisa, etc.
