This apartment was such a find! Plenty of space for a couple, easy access to the sea, beautiful balcony to relax on and take in the view of the sea, Siracusa, and Ortygia (plus an ocean side balcony!). We parked on the street and had no problems. We walked to restaurants in the evening when we didn't cook. A nice grocery store is about a 10 min drive away- Santi had provided the address so we could stop there on our way in (great idea). Ortygia was about 15 min drive; Noto was a 40 min drive. There are two nature reserves within a 10 minute drive from the apartment. Staying here allowed us to see and do so much AND relax, rest, and rejuvenate. Can't recommend it enough.
My husband and I stayed in Santi's apartment for 6 nights. We spent most of our time on the balcony overlooking the bay- peaceful mornings and calm evenings watching the sunset. There were two beaches in walking distance- one about two minutes away. We swam every day...
The apartment had everything we could need. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bed/bath linens and towels were great. Santi offered us a beach umbrella and beach towels. He also had fresh canoli for us!
Check in and check-out were very smooth. Santi is very responsive to communication. He was welcoming and kind throughout our stay-- we'd reach out for recommendations and he'd respond really quickly with great ideas. We felt very much in good hands in a beautiful place.
Thank you so much, Santi!!
The apartment met all of our expectations. We spent almost every night of our 6 night stay on the sea side patio enjoying the view, the breeze and the sound of the waves. And we drank our morning coffee on the other patio catching the morning shade there. The air conditioner in the bedroom was perfect to ensure a good night’s sleep. Although we worried about having a space to park our rental car due to the multitude of parked cars upon arrival on Sunday, this never proved to be a problem. We enjoyed swimming in the clear blue sea right outside the apartment, but you do need some footwear to navigate the sharp rocks of the beach. Definitely recommend this property.
