“Excellent stay in a fabulous place”
Ortigia Island is a wonderful place to spend a few days and this apartment was well situated. Finished to a good standard and in a central location meant you could explore the island easily. Only point to consider is the early morning market located outside the apartment which can be noisy. Part of the fun of enjoying the excellent local food and culture however perhaps not ideal for everyone. Alessandra was a fabulous host and very helpful. I would definitely go back!
Yes,the market is just downstars,on the left street: the main reason I bought this apartment .I felt in love with the true Ortigia,the people,the sound,the flavours,the colours and for doing a promenade into the market every morning(monday-sathurday).Ortigia is alive 24 h and I know that sometimes you could hear the men at work of the market place.As you wrote you'll come back,really appreciate,I understan you love this like me.IPrefer early morning that later night to listen to people,and here the night is so quiet!! Waiting for your next journey I thank you for your sincere review. Greeting
“The apartment, the location, and Allesandra's reccomendations, were all perfect.”
The apartment was just as described. The unit is modern, very clean, and well equipped. Most importantly, the apartment is in an excellent location. You could walk to everything; you never even needed a taxi or a bus. There is much to see in the immediate area, and the restaurants are all superb. There is a huge open air market right on the street next door. It is a wonderful experience walking through the market and buying some of the fresh fruits. the fish and vegetables also looked great, but to tell you the truth, we never cooked a meal. Be aware, if you leave your windows open you will hear the vendors setting up at 5:30 in the morning, and they are noisy. It is a small price to pay, however. In summary, We loved our stay, and would recommend this to anyone!
Thank you to every body,Yes I apologised for the noisy but as you said just one mooring and no more. Come back for a longer time, waiting for you!
“Beautiful apartment in the heart of the market area in Ortygia”
Alessandra, who manages this beautiful property was lovely, even taking the time to contact us during our stay to make sure everything was ok and giving us recommendations. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and light and airy and whilst it doesn't have parking ( common for old properties) Alessandra showed us how to park ' Italian' style, so we never had to pay during our stay or risk being fined for parking in the wrong place. The apartment is right in the heart of the market and we did hear them setting it up on a couple of occasions, but this did not cause any issues and it was lovely to have the market on your doorstep for picking up supplies. In short it's a fantastic apartment which looks exactly like the photos and is managed by someone who clearly enjoys their job.
Thank you,so kindly and polite.Re-welcome any time!
“Fantastic apartment and welcoming host”
We stayed here in April and had a lovely time. The apartment is very stylish yet comfortable, and is in a great central location. You've got the hustle and bustle of the street market below, with its colourful fruit & veg stalls, and fish stalls with a wonderful array of fresh fish. There is a great deli at the end of the market, just outside the door to the apartment, and also a great little sandwich place next to it - both of them feature in the top TripAdvisor locations for Ortigia. The apartment has a lovely little balcony which gets the sun in the morning, so a nice place to have your breakfast and watch people coming and going. It's easy to get around Ortigia, and you are not far from the local bus stop into Siracusa (outside the post office), if you want to get the bus up to the Greek & Roman ruins. Alessandra is a lovely host. She met us at the bus station to take us to the apartment (we got the bus from Catania airport), and she also dropped us back there when it was time to go home. There were some provisions left in the kitchen cupboard - tea, coffee etc - as well as a bowl of fruit and a lovely big cake. Alessandra recommended lots of good restaurants, including Apollonia. Also up there on TripAdvisor feedback, it is a small fish restaurant which does a 6-course fish menu including wine for 35 Euros, and we loved it. We've been telling everyone about it! You'll probably have to book to make sure you can get in - it's only a small place. So we thoroughly recommend the apartment, and we're sure Alessandra will do all she can do make your stay one to remember.
Dear C., it has been a pleasure having you and your family like first guests throw this web site. You are very kind, pleasant, quiet and very polite. I thank you very much for your feed back and I wish you all the best. You're recommended guests for every host, belive me. Re-welcome in any time. Regards
“Lovely Sea View Apartment”
We stayed in this spacious, pleasant and well equipped apartment on Ortigia for ten days. It has a lovely sea view and a balcony big enough for two to three people to comfortably sit and enjoy the view: we ate breakfast there most days! When we arrived, we found a fridge and cupboard with supplies as well as a chilled bottle of wine from Alessandra, the owner. She was an excellent hostess, very warm, welcoming and efficient. In the run-up to our stay, she provided prompt and helpful replies to our emails/queries as well as arranging for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and to take us back again when we left. During our stay she was always available if we needed information or had any problems. There is a market in the mornings in the street outside the apartment which sells locally caught fish as well as bread, meat, eggs, vegetables, etc. There is parking nearby and it is convenient for the train station, buses and the Archaeological Museum and Park in mainland Siracusa. Ortigia itself is a lovely island with lots to do such as visiting the Papyrus Museum, the Giudecca and various archaeological sites including the Greek Temple of Apollo - and there are lots of great restaurants. You can walk all around the island in less than a day and take a variety of boat trips. We would definitely choose to stay in this apartment again as we had an absolutely wonderful holiday and would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in this part of Sicily.
Hi S., so thanks a lot for the beatiful flowers that you have left for me...I love flowers! Meet you and welcome you to the apt La Casa Del Pesce was in absolute pleasure. You're friendy,helpfuk and affable. I always try to do my best for my friends-guests, help them is my goal .Your holiday is mine... I wish you and your family all the best and a goodby.
