This is a lovely place, beautifully decorated and the terrace is glorious, overlooking the Apollo Temple and a food market where we bought fish, cheese and vegetables to BBQ. Alexandra was extremely helpful with recommendations on where to eat and directed us to a lovely private beach with a bar. Great place

Superb location, everything you need is in walking distance. Fabulous market across from the apartment with fresh fish, veg and fruit available everyday- making cooking an absolute joy. Wonderful roof terrace with super views of Apollo's temple, the market and the sea. Fantastic vista for the watching the sun go down with a drink, and the terrace gets the sun all day. Great outdoor BBQ and kitchen area all fully equipped. Inside the apartment was excellently appointed and equipped with everything you need int he kitchen and the bathroom- even a washing machine if you need it! Wifi worked perfectly, and plenty of space for storage of your belongings. Alessandra was so helpful as a host, great communication and lots of recommendations of places to go and really responsive when we had an unexpected power cut! When we arrived she was able to let us in early to the apartment so we could relax quicker which was really appreciated. There were some basic food items as a welcome- pasta, tomato sauce, biscuits, fresh peaches, water and two small bottles of prosecco which was a lovely touch too. We had a fabulous time an would whole heartedly recommend this apartment. our only caution would be the stairs (about 50) up to the apartment- not a problem for us but if you have any mobility issues this might be a bit challenging.

The apartment is compact, very stylish and cleverly designed meaning that a lot is fitted into the small space. The sun terrace is the true star of the apartment, with spectacular views over Temple Di Apollo and Ortigia. Alessandro was so helpful. We had problems getting the front door open and she came to our rescue straightaway (you need to give it a short, sharp jab "the Sicilian way" to get it to open) and she also provided us with water, wine and cakes as well as tips on where to eat nearby. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

This is a beautiful apartment excellently appointed and in the best spot in Ortigia. There are a few steps and doors to open and lock up to the apartment but it's worth it. Make sure you buy your food from the markets across the street and eat it on the terrace either in the sun or watching the sun go down. Alessandra is a great host- communicative and efficient. Would highly recommend

Had 4 days in this delightful apartment, and wished we had longer. The host, Alessandra, was very welcoming, in both email contact before our arrival and in person. She was friendly, efficient and helpful, informing us about the city and sights to see, as well as restaurants which proved to be excellent choices. The apartment was very clean, modern, light and airy. The large terrace had superb views over the city and the Apollo temple, as well as out to sea. It was an ideal place to have breakfast or an evening glass of wine. Key central location in the older area of Ortigia, everything within easy walking distance. Main car park, Talete, is only a 3 or 4 minute walk away. Would love to return.

The apartment is situated on the top floor with a panoramic view of the City and the sea. Indeed, it immediately overlooks the ancient Greek Temple of Apollo, one of the oldest Greek temples outside Greece. The apartment is in the central residential area of Ortega. It was pristine and it was a pleasure to visit the local market for the freshest sea food and fish just minutes away and to be able to cook them on the gas bbq on the terrace the same day. Alessandra was a very helpful and delightful host. Recommended for an authentic experience of Siracuse.
