“Beyond the Call of Duty!”
Reviewed June 1, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Our recent holiday in Siracusa came to an abrupt end when I was taken to hospital by ambulance. This after just a few days in Marco’s beautiful – superbright – studio, kitted out with all the amenities, comfortable beds, laundry facilities, nearby shops, and marvellous French doors that bathed everything in sunshine.

My husband and I were enjoying ourselves immensely, walking daily to the historic island of Ortigia, with its delightful cafes and restaurants, its narrow streets and piazzas; driving to Noto, first to the ruins of the original town destroyed in the earthquake of 1693, and then to its magnificent successor, with its architectural splendours. Suddenly, and with no warning, I wound up in the emergency room of Umberto Primo. It was at that point that Marco truly came into his own, sending his mother and sister to make sure we were coping, while he was otherwise critically engaged; and later sending a friend fluent in English to help us through the complicated medical system.

Marco’s caring support resembled that of a friend: he checked in with us for each of the following three days as well, and made arrangements for us to use the flat in order to regroup, despite the fact that our time was up and his next guests were soon to arrive. His warmth and attention made all the difference.

We can’t recommend both the flat and Marco highly enough.

Liked best: Design of the apartment and it's owner!
Liked least: The kitchen is a bit sparsely equipped and one of the matresses could have been a bit more comfortable.

“Our expectations were exceeded by far!!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We (two girls from Germany) stayed with Igne and Marco for 10 days!
We found the apartment just as described: A very bright, excellently tidy and very cozy place. The old town of Siracusa, Ortigia, is not far: a nice 10-minute stroll takes you here. To the archeological park and other sights (depending on where you’d like to go) you need not more than 15, max. 20 minutes of walking. A pharmacy, grocery shopping, Patisseries and other shops are within 3-5 minute range.
When we arrived, our expectations were exceeded by far when we noticed with what care and devotion our hosts Igne and Marco not only keep the apartment but also welcomed us as their guests. Both provided us with valuable tips (where to go, what to see, where to eat) for Siracusa and around. That way we got to know Siracusa and its environment from a perspective we would probably not have gotten otherwise. Igne and Marco are very attentive (we had clean towels, new bedding without having to ask for it) and helpful.
We highly recommend this lovely apartment and easy-going company and we’d definitely love to come back.
Thanks to Marco and Igne,
Mareike & Anika

“Comfortable studio, full of light. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Me and my wife spent a few days here. Marco is a great host, always there to help and point out some interesting places in Siracusa. The studio is modern, clean and bright. Just around the corner you can find a bar and small shops. Ortigia is within 7 minutes walk distance - so you can go there every day and enjoy lively streets, but you stay in less touristic area. If you search for a cosy appartment, this is the place!
