Photos and Description of this Syracuse holiday apartment

Bedroom Apartment For 5,in Ortigia Near Shops, Fabulous Market And The Sea.

It is situated in a narrow road lit up by pretty lanterns and suitable only for small cars.

External metal stairs to second floor. From a pleasant terrace door to corridor leading to medium size twin/double bedroom, bathroom with shower, charming lounge with beamed ceiling and double doors opening onto terrace. Single divan bed.

From the lounge open archway into modern kitchen with fridge/freezer, cooker with oven, dishwasher and microwave.

Satellite TV.

From lounge stairs to 3rd and top floor, with large double bedroom, with window with view of the sea in the distance.

Bathroom with shower. From bedroom doors to covered terrace with washing machine, outdoor kitchen with 4 gas ring hob and sink, table and chairs (no fridge), from here access to uncovered terrace with charming views over the old town with its churches and roof tops. This terrace can also be reached via an external staircase from the lower terrace.

The apartment is fully air conditioned and it has heating for the cooler months. It is of good standard and we feel it is not suitable for children. Please note this a NON SMOKING apartment. Smoking is allowed only in the terraces.

Sandy beaches are within 15 minutes drive or a rocky beach is 10 minutes walk from the apartments. In the Summer months only, there is a lido 5 minutes walk away.

Parking: Ortigia is now a Unesco protected area and therefore there is a car ban in place within the historical centre. Cars can be left at the Talete car park just before the exclusion area; there is a free shuttle service connecting the car park with Piazzale Archimede in Ortigia just 5 minutes walk from Casa Santo. The Talete car park is 10-15 minutes walk from Casa Santo.

At this apartment we can accept arrivals any day of the week.

Tra storia, cielo e mare

  • 5 of 5

La casa è in pieno centro storico di Siracusa, alle spalle di Piazza Duomo, a pochi passi da tutti i punti di interesse storico e dalle passeggiate in lungomare della bella isola di Ortigia. appartamento comodo, dotato di aria condizionata, con una bella stanza da letto al piano superiore e d al piano inferiore un'altra stanza da letto, il soggiorno ed una cucina di buone dimensioni.Due bagni, accessi separati e comode terrazze per ogni piano consentono anche a coppie di amici una vita "indipendente". Bellissima la vista del cielo di Siracusa, dei tetti di Ortigia e di un angolo di mare che si gode dalle terrazze superiori attrezzate di barbecue e cucina, in cui abbiamo spesso cenato nella brezza profumata del mare. A piedi si raggiunge anche il pittoresco mercato di Ortigia, con pesce, frutta, formaggi vino e delizie siciliane a prezzo molto accessibile. Le scale di accesso non sono adatte a famiglie con passeggini.

Discovering Sicilian east coast

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a very pleasant and unforgettable fortnight at Casa Santo, with a couple of friends. The apartment, spacious, clean and well-maintained, is just behind the amazing Cathedral, right in the center of Ortigia (though not noisy!), where you can join the movida (lots of restaurants, pubs, events) or have a relaxing walk around Siracusa. And if you're too tired to go out after a whole day spent suntanning on the heavenly beaches, you can always BBQ in the large-with-a-view terrace upstairs, just drinking your gin&tonic while looking at the characteristic Church-tops....

Could you ask for more??

soluzione romantica

  • 5 of 5

Posizione eccellente, pieno centro di Ortigia, ad un passo da piazza Duomo e dai luoghi più belli di Siracusa. Casa Santo e' curata nell'arredamento, climatizzata, ed ha il suo punto di forza nella terrazza attrezzata dove puoi cenare in piena privacy, in una atmosfera romantica creata dalle luci della città. Se hai bimbi molto piccoli cerca un altra sistemazione; per accedere alla casa al primo piano vi è una scala , comoda, ma non adatta al trasporto di culle e passeggini. A qualche km trovi alcune spiagge fra le più belle che abbia mai visto, oppure per una nuotata puoi recarti a piedi ai solarium comunali (attenzione perchè non sempre sono aperti e funzionanti). Chi cerca un mix fra mare, ristorantini ed il fascino di una città ricca di storia è nel posto giusto.

excellent location and large terraces

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at Casa Santo for 10 days and it was a very interesting and relaxing holiday. The apartment is right in the centre of Ortigia, we were concerned it was going to be noisy, but it was not. it is spacious , the best feauture is the large terrace at the top where you can BBQ. We had memorable evenings just looking at the many lit up Church Tops you can see from the Terrace.

Plenty of Restaurants and the sea was at the bottom of the little alleyway.

We are considering going back with another couple of friends. Better without young children.

The apartment is in Ortigia, the heart of Syracuse historical centre, minutes walk from the main square and the promenade by the sea. Ortigia is a small island linked by two bridges to the main town and is now one of Unesco protected World Heritages centres. Its labyrinth of little alleyways dotted with ancient Greek ruins, Baroque fountains, open air restaurants and cafes will not fail to entertain you.

Syracuse was the capital of the Magna Grecia and you can enjoy visiting one of the largest Greek theatres, where in May and June they still perform plays from Aeschylus to Aristophanes; another sight not be missed are the S. Giovanni Catacombs, second in size only to the Rome ones. The heart of the town is the magnificent Cathedral Square, a large pedestrian area surrounded by beautiful buildings. The sight of the lit up square enjoyed while having a meal in one of the open air restaurants will be an unforgettable magical memory.
