cosy homes for creative people and travellers in  sicily

casa del forte - balcony sea view studio b

A former Fisherman House in the Ortigia Island, the center of Syracuse and at walking distance from everything you want to do and see.

With its original atmosphere kept, the house has been renewed with sophisticated simplicity and combining traditional materials with a contemporary style.

The studio is  facing the mediterranean sea and has a private balcony to enjoy the the view and the breeze. All the windows are blue painted as the typical Mediterranean Island Houses

The white wooden pavement it make you feel inside a boat.

An artistic panel with unique and hand-made ceramic tiles with an organic white and blue pattern inspired by Ellswoth Kelly shape is the background of the scenery inside the loft and recreate a virtual calm waves movement.

A compact kitchen and a cosy table in front of the sea view will be everything you need for your stay in Syracuse

You will have access to an amazing bright white big terrace with a spectacular wide sea view and paved with local lime stone.

The Terrace has the size of a small plaza and has the same atmosphere of a typical "piazzetta" facing the sea. it is shared with the small studio in the same property and you will have a dedicated area for you with your private table and deck chairs.

The lime stone from Modica is the same used in the near by castle and is a virtual extension of the "Forte San Giovannello" pedestrian path.

Additional to the amazing view and location you will find an open air shower marked by a giant red circle (indicating the direction of the sunrise) and is the perfect place for a relax sun bathing in the City Center.

You will enjoy breakfast and dinners under the moon light and with the sound of the calm waves of the Mediterranean Sea.

Opposite to the pure shape of the circle a wall is covered with hand made ceramic  tiles, handcrafted in the Sicilian town of Cartagiorone

Traditional and contemporary, this is a stylish option in the heart of the enchanting island of Ortigia, the old city center of Syracuse.

This house has been refurbished in 2017.
