cosy homes for creative people and travellers in  sicily

Das Apartment ist wunderbar ruhig und gleichzeitig zentral gelegen. Es ist ein Traum für Designliebhaber, und der Kontrast der modernen Architektur zum Haus und der Umgebung fasziniert jeden Tag aufs Neue ... genauso wie die riesige Dachterrasse und der Blick aus dem Schlafzimmer über die Dächer von Ortigia.

The appartment is a real gem, especially if you like modern architecture. It is beautifuly located in the old town and has nice terrace. Alberto was very helpful and gave me some good suggestions about the area. Thank you very much for letting me to use the washing machine :) I highly recommend this place. Enjoy Siracusa!

Really good communication before we traveled and more good communication as we arrived. The apartment was exactly as described, easy to find, and the arrival and departure process worked fine. Easy to walk to all the places we wanted to visit. The rooftop terrace was a fantastic bonus - being able to sit out in the evening in late October with a glass of wine! Alberto also marked out a map with places to visit. Restaurant recommendations was a welcome idea as well.

We would absolutly recomend this appartment. The appartment has an excellent location on Ortygia and was just as nice as the pictures shows. Francesco and Alberto are very helpfull and were very quick to respond to any questions we had.

This is a lovely designer apartment in a great location only 5 minutes walk to Ortigia. Free parking is available on the street outside. The apartment is modern,roomy and spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen. The fact that this aparment is just outside Ortigia is an added bonus due to the ease of access/parking and the local bars and restaurants away from tourist central. I would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Siracusa and would definitely stay here again given the opportunity. Cheers, Ole.

I would 100% recommend this apartment for a stay in Ortigia. Ortigia is beautiful and staying in such a stylish, chic apartment really made our stay special. The terrace is incredible and location is ideal. Francesco and Alberto gave us lots of helpful advice about the area and good restaurants. An excellent place to stay!

Wonderful host who communicated by email promptly! The large apartment is suitable for a family or a couple. We spent many an hour on the third flour balcony enjoying the sights and sounds of Siracusa. Great location close to supermarkets, restaurants and the old city. We always felt safe! Francesco also arranged private transfers for us to and from Catania, so hiring a car was not necessary.

Wir haben sehr schöne Tage in Albertos Apartment verbracht, das für Architekten ein wirklicher Leckerbissen ist- klein, aber perfekt durchdacht und sehr gut ausgestattet. Albertos Vater hat uns sehr nett empfangen, während unserer Aufenthalts konnten wir uns jederzeit an ihn wenden, waren jedoch völlig ungestört.Die Lage am Meer ist wild und grandios, der Platz auf der Terrasse großartig, die Nähe zu Syrakus ist perfekt. Gerne wieder!

Appartement agréable dans un immeuble ancien à proximité de commerces et du centre ville (à moins de 5 minutes). Alberto qui nous a accueilli s'est montré disponible et n'a pas hésité à nous donner ses bonnes adresses. Très disponible et serviable (nous souhaitions dormir dans deux chambres distinctes chose que nous n'avions pas spécifié et les draps nous ont été fourni le soir même). L'appartement est des agréable, bien équipé et très propre, quelques éléments nous ont été fournis pour le petit déjeuner.

Unser Aufenthalt in Plemmirio war wundervoll entspannend – nicht zuletzt dank der Herzlichkeit der Familie von Francesco und Alberto. Wir fühlten uns willkommen, und das Studio übertraf in Sachen Ausblick, Lage und Ausstattung unsere Erwartungen. Kurz: sehr empfehlenswert!

Sarah Kohler, Zurich, Switzerland, September 2015


La casa es exactamente como muestran las fotografías. Muy grande, espaciosa y muy bonita. Decorada con mucho gusto. La cocina y el baño totalmente equipados. Pedimos que nos pusieran una cuna para el bebe y lo hicieron, muy limpia y grande. Esta muy bien situado tanto de ortigia como del centro de Siracusa y no tuvimos problema para aparcar gratis. Los anfitriones muy agradables. Francesco contesto a todas nuestras dudas por mensaje muy rápidamente. Además el día del viaje nos retrasamos, les llamamos por teléfono y Alberto vino a entregarnos las llaves en cuanto llegamos. También nos enviaron recomendaciones sobre playas, donde comer... Todo fenomenal. Recomendaría este sitio. Y si vuelvo a Siracusa volvería.

Elena Gutierrez, Logroño, Spain, July 2015


The apartment was beautiful Francesco taste is amazing. They gave us fantastic recommendations on where to eat and what beaches to visit. I would most definitely suggest the apartment to friends and family.

Nina Ravenscroft, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, July 2015


L'appartement est très bien situé, au cœur de Ortygia, commerces et plage/solarium à proximité. La décoration est soignée et la terrasse très agréable pour prendre le petit déjeuner ou dîner. Un plus pour la clim vraiment appréciable quand il fait plus de 30 dehors ! Des problèmes de plomberie vite réglés par Alberto qui est un hôte vraiment réactif et sympathique. Je recommande tout à fait ce bel appartement.

Sophie Gay, Cergy, France, July 2015


Very nice, clean and big apartment at a perfect location in Syracuse/Ortigia. Balcony is very nice and quite bit, all facilities are included. Owners are really quick to respond and fix any problem immediately. They even provide a list with recommendations for restaurants/ beaches etc. While the building itself isn't that nice from outside, we can really recommend it!

Cyrille Verbeeten, Amsterdam, Netherlands, July 2015


The apartment certainly has a 'wow' factor and adequately reflects its designer/architect vision. The size is great for 2 or 3 people and the terrace is the icing on the cake. The location is hard to beat making it very easy to access all of the sights and many nearby restaurants.

Michael Murphy, Cork, Ireland, July 2015


A nice welcome from the owners. It was very easy to communicate with them by email. The area is nice and it is pretty easy to find a free parking place. Supermarket just downstairs. You can walk in 10 minutes to Ortigia. The building has a lift. The apartment is spacious, clean and modern with unusual decoration. The terrace is great.

Michelle Handley, Barcelona, Spain, June 2015


This apartment is brilliantly located in a beautiful part of Sicily. The classy yet relaxed design and wonderful terrace sometimes made leaving the apartment very difficult! The kitchen is well equipped and lovely touches like art & design books to read made this a very special holiday. Communication with hosts was great throughout and we certainly hope to return again. We will be recommending a stay at Alberto & Francesco's place to our friends and family.

Lizzy King, London, United Kingdom, June 2015


Hosts were very warm and prompt to answer any questions we had about the apartment/area. The flat was very nice with great design and care taken, the description very accurate. We had a lovely time here (myself and girlfriend) for a week and it is a great location very close to the island of Ortigia only a 5 min walk down the main Curso Umberto. Would recommend. Thanks Francesco and Alberto!

Will Goodwin, Great Britain, June 2015


Il soggiorno presso la Penthouse è stato splendido! Location perfetta, host gentilissimo. La terrazza sul tetto è stata una vera "ciliegina sulla torta" : ) Torneremo appena possibile... grazie Alberto, grazie Francesco!

Elena Monami, Siena, Italy, June 2015


An absolutely beautiful apartment within walking distance to everything in Siracusa and Ortigia. Very stylish and very easy to communicate with the hosts. Check in was a breeze. I would love to stay there again!

Michael Ryall, Melbourne, Australia, June 2015


Francescos und Albertos Vater hat uns das Haus zu finden geholfen und uns bestens alles erklärt sowie einen kleinen (essbaren) Willkommensgruß auf den Tisch des Hauses gestellt. Wir fanden die Wohnung in genayu dem Zustand, den wir uns erhofft hatten: sehr elegante, zweckmäßige Architektur, alles Notwendige vorhanden, super Design vor allem im Bad, aber auch im Wohnraum. Eher noch besser als in der Beschreibung. Dazu noch toller Meerblick durch das riesige Fenster... Es war sehr schön, hier zu wohnen.

Dietmar Larcher, Vienna, Austria, May 2015


A truly wonderful stay here. The location was good ... Walking distance from Ortigia which had so much to see n do. The apartment was comfortable n Francesco n Alberto were good hosts n provided us with information promptly. We tried as many of the restaurants they recommended n all were good choices. The retro furnishing were a joy to be a part of!
