"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.

"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!

"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.
