A comfortable and cozy apartment
Me and my wife stayed in Siracusa 5 nights. It was our second time in Siracusa, first time we stayed just outside Ortigia. We came to Siracusa after touring a couple of weeks in Sicily. It was really easy to stay in touch with Donna beforehand and arrange a meeting time, she was very punctual and friendly. The apartment was perfect for us, we stayed in July and we didn't need to use air conditioners, it was enough to keep the windows open, air circulates just fine. The walls of the apartment are thick and it doesn't get hot. The apartment has spiral stairs (really loved them) up to the kitchen and terrazza. The terrace is filled with flowers and plants and it was a nice place to eat breakfast and spend some time later during the day. The appartment is situated in the beautiful side alley, there was some temporary renovation work going in the next building but it is a really quiet and nice place. We really liked this apartment.
Lovely apartment and a great host.
Donna's apartment in Ortigia was lovely and she was an amazing host. The apartment was clean and included everything you'd need.
There's three small balconies, but you'll probably spend most of your time on the large rooftop terrace which opens out from the kitchen/dining area. The terrace was perfect for breakfast and a glass of wine in the evening. There's plenty of nice plants and just enough shade from the hot Sicilian sun.
The apartment has a charming, homey atmosphere. Tastefully decorated with wooden furniture, art-adorned walls, exposed beams, a quant spiral staircase and tiled floors throughout. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need and Donna was kind enough to leave us with a bowl of limes, coffee, olive oil, herbs etc. The freezer had icepacks/ice and the rooms had air conditioning.
The apartment is in an old building perfectly located down one of Ortigia's many beautiful lanes. The apartment is a 5-10 minute walk from anywhere in Ortigia and especially close to the beautiful Piazza Duomo. A highlight for us was the wonderful market and the platform built to swim off the rocks and sunbath on. The location of the apartment couldn't be better. Street parking on the island of Ortigia isn't possible, and the nearby 'Talete' car park is quite expensive. Fortunately, Donna's apartment is a four minute walk across the bridge to an area in which street parking is free.
The historic island of Ortigia was a perfect base to explore the region. We enjoyed a day swimming in crystal clear water at Calamosche beach, and the scenic Laghetto di Cavagrande del Cassibile. It was always a pleasure to spend our evenings exploring Ortigia's picturesque lanes and piazzas filled with historic buildings, restaurants, cafes, and gelaterias. Easily one of the nicest European towns I've ever visted.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Donna's apartment and I'm sure you will too!
"Confortevole appartamento nel cuore della splendida Ortigia a pochi passi da tutti i servizi commerciali e con un comodissimo terrazzino ottimo sia per consumare i pasti all''aperto sia solo per rilassarsi.
We stayed in Siracusa and at Donna's apartment over Christmas. The place has so much character and was ideal for a couple. Even though it was December, we were able to enjoy the outdoor space for coffee and a few really beautiful sunsets. It is in the perfect location; quiet and so close to everything. Donna and her family were incredibly helpful, even picking us up on our arrival at the train station. It's a great city to explore and a wonderful place to stay where you can feel like you might actually live there. We would definitely return.
A homely house with character
We stayed in the apartment for 5 days in October and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Donna is really wonderful, she was so helpful and speaks very good English. She picked us up at the bus station when we arrived so there was no difficulty finding the place. It is always easy to contact her with any questions which is very reassuring. The apartment is very well located on Ortigia, near restaurants, shops, with a supermarket around the corner, but also near the entrance to Ortigia so that you can get to the bus or train terminal in 20 minutes walk (we did not hire a car). The apartment had everything we needed, a good shower, internet which worked everywhere, the lovely roof-top kitchen with everything in it and an outside terrace. The apartment is on 2 levels with the sitting area, 2 bedrooms and bathroom on the lower level (on the 2nd floor of the house) and the kitchen and roof terrace on the higher level up a spiral staircase. We really enjoyed out stay there and would recommend the apartment to others visiting Ortigia - it's a perfect location.
My parents stayed in Donna's apartment for a week in late September and my boyfriend and I joined them for 3 nights. The apartment is in a good location allowing easy access to Ortigia (just round the corner from via Cavour and main attractions) and Siracusa with its surrounding transport links. As my parents are a bit older this was perfect for them. They were able to find their way to the archeological park by bus as well as enjoy the pretty lanes of Ortigia without too much trouble. For the rest we took them around by car.
The apartment is on the first floor and there are narrow spiral stairs in the apartment to access the kitchen/diner and terrace which, having organised many trips for my parents to Sicily, I take into consideration The apartment is compact and ideal for couples with a double room with a sliding door, a smaller single room and if you were a bigger group, another two can sleep in the living space but for longer stays this might not be ideal.
The apartment is furnished and decorated nicely but could do with a little TLC. We arranged an arrival time with Donna after lunch and she was there to meet us, showing us around the apartment and highlighting places of interest and restaurants to try. We encountered rain during the stay and perhaps due to this Donna wasn't able to visit when we encountered a problem but after a couple of days she visited and advised my parents what to do.
Ortigia is a great place to visit and you could easily spend some time here without feeling the need to visit the other Baroque towns but of course if you have the opportunity they're a must.
