My wife and I had a wonderful time at Villa Artemis in mid-October. The property is in a marine protected area within an active horticultural community. It is very well maintained, clean and secure, and has direct water front. Our hosts were most gracious, responding quickly to our questions, giving advice on travel and showing us the locations of a wonderful café and a supermarket. A car is a necessity and it is a great location to use as a base for day-trips or just relaxing on the spacious first floor balcony and enjoying the spectacular sea views. It’s away from the noise and commotion of Syracuse and Ortygia yet is within a short 15 min. drive to the city parking areas. It was just what we wanted.
We loved this property. Everything is brand-new, beautifully designed and decorated, immaculately clean, and equipped for every need. The linens and towels were so fresh, the A/C worked like a dream, the Wi-Fi worked seamlessly, lots of hot water, new appliances, comfortable furniture, and parking was a breeze (right in front of the flat). There is a lovely open piazza a few meters away where we played soccer with our son, and lots of close shops for food, coffee, etc. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the center of the old part of Ortigia, but we took a taxi home one night and it was very inexpensive and quick. Santi and Simona were communicative, prompt, and incredibly helpful and generous (they brought us a bottle of wine, which was much appreciated!) giving great recommendations for what to see, places to eat, etc. They even made a special note to wish our son a happy birthday during our visit! We would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend it without hesitation. Thank you, Eleven, for a wonderful stay in Siracusa!
