"Wonderful stay!"

There was a lot of space which was just perfect for our big family (5 kids from 9 to 5). The location is ideal to discover the beauty of Ortigia. The people at the reception were very welcoming.

"The most amazing apartment in the perfect location"

My family stayed in this apartment for a few days in Jan and it was just perfect. Two loft bedrooms plus a master bathroom with more than ample space. Very workable kitchen and laundry. The location is on a quiet street at the end of the island of Ortegia. Walkable to every site and great food. We even found a market so we could enjoy all of the fresh produce. Perfect location and fantastic apartment.

"Spectacular apartment in a spectacular town"

My husband and I stayed in this apartment with our 5 children aged 5 to 16. We loved it from the moment we walked in the door. The décor is simple but beautiful. The location is fantastic and the town is stunning. It is spotlessly clean and, importantly, It was more than big enough to handle our large family. I only wished we had stayed here longer. Two days is not enough to relax and enjoy this beautiful place.

"Un tres bel appartement"

L'appartement situé sur l'Ile d'Ortigia est à deux pas de deux petites plages ce qui est très agréable puisque nous sommes dans une ville. Si l'accés à l'appartement par un arrière cours en travaux peut vous rebuter, vous découvrirez ensuite un très beau lieu, spacieux, bien décoré et avec tout le confort souhaité. Nous y avons passé de très belles vacances. Le propriétaire nous a également réservé un excellent accueil et nous a conseillé sur les lieux à visiter. Un détour au marché sur l'Ile d'Ortigia vous amusera sans doute.

I'm very like that you have been found good, hope to accommodate portervi again for your next holiday to Casa Aretusa

"What a great find!"

I traveled with my husband & 3 children, 24, 23 and 17. We all loved the apartment and the town! Francesco was very helpful during the booking. Giovanni, who gave us the keys once we arrived, couldn't have been kinder - Christmas eve, he even gave us a delicious bottle of wine that his friend had made. Two of the three bedrooms are on the second floor and somewhat isolated, so if stairs are in issue or if you have toddlers, pay attention! Make sure to check out the outdoor market, which I believe is open till 1PM - wonderful fish, produce, Sicilian delicacies, bread, etc. If you like ricotta, buy it fresh there - DELICIOUS! The ricotta al forno (baked) was also to die for. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to stay in Ortigia. Grazie mille, Francesco e Giovanni! Buon Anno!

I'm very like that you have been found good, hope to accommodate portervi again for your next holiday to Casa Aretusa

"Great location, massive space, great value"

We booked this accommodation very late and got a bargain. The apartment sleeps eight, I think, so was overkill for two of us but looked very modern from the website and was in the right location. It is nothing special from the outside, run down in fact, but it's very good inside and that's what counts. It was clean, had air con, cutlery, washing machine, iron, fridge, cooker, etc. All mod cons. We met Francesco who gave us the keys and showed us around, he was very helpful and spoke good English. From our Sicily experience parking close to your apartment is an issue. It's a free for all for the limited free spaces so we ended parking in the big car park Talete at the top of the island. You could load the meter and leave for a number of days if you wish, it's about 10 euros a day. The walk back was about 1km past the fish market, cathedral and back streets. It was fine but be aware is that's what you decide to do. Lots of good restaurants and bars around. Lots of interesting things to see too. Nice pub around the corner which had a good Rum and Whiskey selection. The apartment and Ortigia are recommended.

I am glad that you are well to Casa Aretusa, I hope to welcome you for your next vacation. greetings Francesco

"It was excellent!"

We was in Ortigia - Syracuse in June 2013 and stayed in Casa Aretusa for 3 nights. It is a very beautiful and big apartment. The location was great but is difficult parking on site. We had a great time! Thanks Francesco!

"Fanastic stay - helpful and friendly staff and great value for money"

We booked this rental via and didn't really know much about Syracuse or the best place to stay etc.. As we were meeting family who had travelled from Belgium and England, we wanted to choose a place that was easy to find, centrally located, as well as reasonably priced for 6 adults. Casa Aretusa met our expectations and more! The location was perfect, such a short walk to waterfront and centre for beautiful night time walks to get gelati and visit the gorgeous Ortigia square. The service was second to none, in fact, when we realised at 11pm the night before arrival (from Malta via ferry) that it was going to be very difficult for us to arrive by taxi from the ferry port - Francesco answered our plea for assistance and had a transfer (thanks Andrea!) waiting for us at 630 am the following day. Very impressed! It saved us a terrible travel day, it was a great start to what was a happy and very enjoyable stay. I am sorry that i have forgotten the gentleman's name who looked after us when we arrived (where you collect the key at B& B "Palazzo del Sale"), he was also very helpful and had many good suggestions for things to see and places to go - whenever we saw him in the street he would come and say hello and ask us how we were enjoying our stay. Overall, we were very happy with the stay and could make no recommendations for improvement, the accommodation was exceptional value for money - the pictures are exactly right. We were surprised by, and loved, Ortigia in general and hope to return. Thanks Francesco!

Good morning, thanks for the wonderful feedback of Casa Aretusa and all the staff, I am very pleased that you have been found good. We hope to welcome you again. Have a nice day Francesco
