“A polished gem”
Reviewed January 26, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Situated just outside the border of Ortigia, and an easy ten minute walk from both bus and train terminals, this little apartment is a perfect home away from home. It has recently been finished to a tasteful standard, is in a secure and attractive building, is close to supermarkets, fruit stalls, cafes, panini stands and even has a mobile delicatessen which parks out the front each day.

Add to this your host Marco, for whom nothing was too much trouble, and you have the ideal mix. He lives in the same building. He texted every now and then to see if we were ok, and provided us with some extra linen when the need arose. There was bottled water ( as the local water doesn't taste too good) , as well as some locally roasted coffee on our arrival.

“We loved staying in this flat in Syracuse for our 6 day visit to the city.”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The flat is immaculate, very comfortable and is very well equipped. It is very convenient for everything. It is only a 10 minute walk to Ortigia (which we visited every day), the railway/bus station and the archaeological park. Marco was very welcoming and helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. He gave us some brilliant tips about cafes and restaurants and places to visit. We highly recommend this flat. Thank you Marco.

“Great apartment with a very friendly host.”
Reviewed September 30, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Marcus was a great host. He offered lots of suggestions of places to visit and restaurants to try. I left my jacket on the bus we travelled on to get to Marcus's apartment and he managed to get it back for me.
The apartment was well situated for everything in Siracusa and we found it very clean and comfortable. There was plenty of shampoo, shower gel, tea, coffee etc for us to use.
Marcus was always on hand if we needed him for anything.

“Oriental Sicily”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Location is just 5 mins walking to the city center and Ortigia Island. Apartment is cozy, clean and with all fornitures you need. Marco, the host, is very warm welcoming and willing for any of our needs during our journey , recommending us the best place to visit and to eat. Worth to spend a journey and amazing experience in this beautiful island.

“Perfect”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This apartment ticked all the boxes! The location is very convenient as it is only a few minutes walk into the old centre and you're also well-positioned for getting onto the roads to explore places around Siracusa. Plenty of parking on the road outside and no ZTL zone to navigate around! The apartment is very bright, modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The host is friendly, informative, considerate and extremely courteous. He gave us some excellent recommendations of places to visit, which made our holiday memorable.

“Clean and bright.”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Stayed for four nights. The apartment is bright, modern and adequately equipped with a comfortable bed.The owner is most helpful and will go out of his way to make your stay a good one. There are plenty of places to purchase fresh or ready made foods within the vicinity as well as restaurants on the doorstep and, not just stores but vans selling fresh stuff along with hot food. Live like a local but within easy vicinity of the tourist stuff

“Fantastic flat and wonderful host”

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful flat for a few weeks whilst waiting for our host Marco's smaller but equally beautiful flat to become available.
Both properties were immaculately presented, extremely comfortable, modern and bright.
We loved the location which was a ten minute walk to busy Ortigia and five minutes to Marina Piccolo. A five minute walk took you to a well stocked supermarket and shopping area, however, there were also smaller shops, cafes, Gelateria and fruit and veg stalls nearby providing you with everything you needed.
Marco was a fantastic host, there if you needed him but giving you your privacy to enjoy your stay.
He knew we enjoyed rugby and during the Six Nations competition he very kindly asked us to join him and his friends in a local bar to cheer Italy along.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of the flats for a short or long stay in Siracuse.
Grazie mille Marco for everything!
