Cozy Loft in the heart of Ortigia. 3 min walking to piazza duomo.. 1 min from the sea. Absolutely perfect if you want to live like a true sicilan in an historic alley!
Renovated combining Tradition and Design, Casa Lola is a charming and comfortable one-room flat for 2 people. Staying in the alley in one of the oldest areas of the city, the GIUDECCA is like stepping back in time but with every comfort. Enjoy Sicily

The space

I have loved this House as soon as I saw her and I completely renovated as liked to me. A magnificent stone arch welcomes you at the entrance under which a crystal shrine keeps the original terracotta floor found below that of white stone and baked today. Other furnishing solutions as the silver wallpaper bought in London, or the stunning baroque mirror found in used, grey hand resined bath walls, or golden bath door, make this little magic loft in island. This home is a perfect little nest for you after a day out at sea and to meet people; to see things, and enjoy delicious flavors, to live great.

Guest access

The House is a one-room flat as they are traditionally BASSO, the fishermen's home. This has access to a shared courtyard where you can spread out to dry your swimsuit or just to let in the morning sun. There is also a bike hanging in the living room available to the joints around. But in cities also works a very interesting rental program. wi-fi in :-)

Ortigia is a "big rock" connected from the sea by two bridges. From the train station/bus "out of bridges", where all public transport from the rest of the island, (also from Catania airport which is about 45 minutes by bus-departures every hour-), a minibus/shuttle for pennies brings in various points of the island. Or you can take taxis that wait in front of the stops (keep in mind that the center of Ortigia is about 2 km from the station).

Interaction with guests

I'm from Modena (Italy) and I created this home on the island in the island to take refuge when it's time to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And I decided to make it available when they are not there. So I probably won't be there when you arrive. But there will be my sicilian friends, special people, very kind, that will welcome you with their innate elegance and sympathy to ensure your pleasant and quiet. If you need anything you may ask them. We strive to make your holiday unforgettable

Other things to note

This is my house and is not meant to be rented. I have my personal stuff that I put at your disposal. There is a very large double bed. The house is equipped with washing machine and air conditioning and heat pump/heating (although the house is cool in summer and hot in winter by nature). Wi-fi in.

The house is my personal and the I carefully furnished.
For this I try to very select my guests.
Usually I rent to people who have long been on airbnb and have positive reviews because it means that are used to host or to be guests and that gives me a bit of guarantees.
You have to apologize for these rigidities but it is the only way for me to protect a home that is delicate and which I treasure.
So I, the first time I rented, had no reviews and this does not mean that I was not trustworthy!
I would be very happy If you could give me please some information, for example the reason for the trip, if you have been in Sicily, with those who are traveling, your age and what is your profession, things like that, I might have more material to be able to decide.
I also like to know the people who will live in my house. Beautiful energies remain in places crossed by beautiful people. :)

PS: I never cancel a booking accepted if not arise serious housing safety reasons and / or host unreliability. I only had to cancel a reservation since I rent, on Christmas Day this year (2016), as the host gave me embarrassments immediately after booking. And unfortunately for the hosts there is no possibility of cancellation for the right reasons without serious consequences. So the bad reference of the cancellation and the impossibility for the next year to become a super host (the title was in 2016) would you please do not view it as a bad availability and quality of service. Please go read the references of my fantastic guests (both Italian and foreign) to get an idea of the quality of the house, the location and the care with which I welcome my guests. :)

NOTICE: If you arrive by car please note that Ortigia is a LIMITED TRAFFIC cars area. There is a paid parking NOT guarded outside the area, but about 800 meters from home. To all my guests would recommend using a secure garage for a fee (10 X 24h) a few meters from home within the restricted traffic. The reservation of the garage (that I do before the guests arrive) allows you to enter in the limited area.

The House has fine finishings. Has soft white stone floors extremely pleasant but a little delicate. As well as the steel kitchen and beautiful ceramic electric fires but also delicate. It requires that land care at your home. It's one room a little bit small so it's not designated smoking inside. So it is not recommended for animals that would be extremely sacrificed.

Emanuelas home on Ortigia Island in Siracuse is beautiful. It's situated down a small narrow lane typical of Ortigia Island. You'll feel right amongst real Sicily. It's only a moments walk to the swimming spot on the rocks and a few minutes walk to the Piazza Duomo. The communication from Emanuela and Angelo was fantastic. I can highly recommend this Air Bnb if you want a real authentic stay in a fantastic location. There's even a fab wee supermarket just around the corner so you can cook your own food if you want.

A perfect stay. Parking made easy by Emanuel's local contact who showed us to the parking and picked us up by foot at the end of our stay to go get our car. The apartment was cool, even in August and it was in a perfect location. We fell in love with Ortigia and couldn't have asked for a better stay!

We had a lovely time staying at Emanuela's place in Siracusa. The location of the apartment couldn't be better, a few minutes walk from the water and from the heart of the old city. Emanuela made sure everything was in order for our arrival and provided a long list of restaurant recommendations and sight-seeing tips. Angelo was very friendly and helpful, accommodating our check-in and departure. The apartment has everything you need and is very nicely decorated. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next trip to Sicily!

Emanuelas place was a special find; uniquely curated and designed to create a very chic space. The booking process was smooth and communication with Emanuela was concise and prompt. She made a lot of recommendations in terms of restaurants, areas of interest, etc which was super helpful. Although we didn't have the chance to meet her on our visit, we were welcomed and assisted on arrival to make everything smooth and easy. Location was perfect and walking distance to all areas of the island. The apt was cozy and you can see the detail and thought put into the decor. The only downside is that you can hear everything from outside, from the neighbours speaking to people walking by. So if you are a light sleeper, this might not be the most ideal place. I would highly recommend Emanuelas apt and would definitely stay again if visiting Ortigia in the future!

I thank you infinitely for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment. I'm sorry for the noise from the alley. In summer, in Sicily, daily life moves on the road. This is a bit a feature of Sicily. Some people love this, but sometimes it gets a bit annoying. I hope this little annoyance did not affect the beauty of this magical place. I expect you every time you want to come back. I will be happy to host you again if you want and will help you to know better this corner of Sicily. See you soon

We loved Emanuela's apartment. Extremely central, just minutes away from the Duomo and main sites. We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful apartment.
