The owners of this apartment describe it as elegant, but the word, elegant, doesn’t come close to capturing how beautiful and special this lodging is. Both owners are architects, and their expertise is obvious in the layout and design. The apartment is spacious and airy with clean lines, accented with interesting architectural artifacts. It has the unique combination of all the modern amenities one would prefer, including a large exceptionally beautiful and functional bathroom, packaged in rooms that are both charming and classic.
The location couldn’t be more convenient, one block from the sea and a small beach, and one block from Via Roma, a central street with many interesting shops, cafes and restaurants.
The owners are gracious and helpful. They live nearby and are available to provide assistance and advice, as needed.
My wife and I spent five wonderful days in this apartment, and our only regret was that we had to leave it. We recommend it highly and unequivocally.

Such a lovely apartment in the most beautiful area of Ortigia. From the moment we arrived Mariella was the perfect hostess. The flat is in an amazing older building just steps away from the sea. I absolutely loved Mariella's decorating, it lives up to it's name, elegante. The kitchen is large with everything you need. The cooking and sink area are a bit small but manageable for simple meals. The location is perfect, very quiet but within walking distance to everything. We had one minor issue with the older plumbing but Mariella was quick to address the problem. Milko was also helpful in steering us towards some good restaurants.
One thing I had some issues with had nothing to do with the apartment but with Siracusa in general. The tourist infrastructure is sorely lacking, we had a very hard time finding information about tours, local sites, public transportation, etc.
