About this home

Nice independent studio, recently renovated, with small courtyard of relevance. Located in the heart of Siracusa, one of the landmarks of the historic center of Syracuse.
Located in the historic and elegant Piazzetta dei Cavalieri di Malta built in 1500, once consecrated to San Biagio and San Leonardo, today it hosts cultural events.

Open space welcoming and furnished with typical style embellished by two arches, offers all the comforts for a pleasant stay, the cottage is equipped with sheets, towels of good quality. An air-conditioned studio, internet connection (wifi), with TV where you can relax after a day of sightseeing in Ortygia. The sea is only a few steps away.

Great location, just a few minutes from the Forte Vigliena solarium and the main tourist attractions: Piazza Duomo, Temple of Apollo, Fonte Aretusa and Castello Maniace.

The area is well served by restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and mini markets.

If you arrive by car, you can park just a few meters from the house on the white strips or at the Talete covered parking (for a fee).

We will be at your disposal during your stay to intervene in case of need or to advise you on what to do, what to see, where to eat and on the most beautiful beaches in the area.

The car will not serve you for the city.

Syracuse is located on the eastern side of Sicily and is the ideal starting point for day trips to Noto (30min), Ragusa, Modica (50min), Scicli, Marzamemi. Inland we suggest you to visit Palazzolo (40min) and Caltagirone (90 min) (with the beautiful Villa Romana del Casale). In the north direction Catania (45 min) and Taormina (90 min). With the car you can also reach the most beautiful sandy beaches that are located south of Syracuse.

    Super séjour

    Appartement au coeur d'Ortigia, calme, propre avec l'essentiel. Claudio qui fait tout pour que l'on passe un bon séjour et pour faciliter nos arrivée avec des heures décalées. L'appartement est un peu sombre mais le petit couloir avec table est très sympa pour s'y poser avec plus de lumière.

    piccolo incanto nel cuore di Ortigia

    L'appartamento è situato in un angolo di piazza connotato dalla pace e dal silenzio, fattori fondamentali per un soggiorno di sereno riposo. La permanenza nella casa, attrezzata di tutto, è resa ancora più preziosa dal clima di persistente fresco, elemento fondamentale soprattutto nel periodo estivo. Soggiorno e appartamento eccellenti

    Très bonne location idéalement située

    Charmant appartement, très propre, bien équipé. Idéal pour 2 personnes. Sa situation en plein cœur de la vieille ville de Siracuse et au calme au fond d'une petite cour. Les ruelles magiques dans lesquelles on ne peut se perdre. Des commerces de qualité, des gens agréables, de nombreux restaurants dans des anciennes demeures ou les tables sont aussi dressées dehors. Des bars tout aussi agréables avec des cocktails délicieux, des lieux pour se baigner en pleine ville, l'Etna à environ 50 km et la magnifique ville de Taormina sur son piton rocheux surplombant la mer. Dans Siracuse, les arènes, les catacombes etc. Location à recommander pour découvrir cette charmante île qu'est Ortigia. Sans oublier les propriétaires Hilde et Claudio attentifs à notre bien être.
