OverviewPerfect for a short city break in the sun, Casa a Ortigia is a contemporary two-bedroom villa with a secluded roof terrace, situated on the waterfront on Syracuse’s atmospheric Ortigia island. The sea is just moments away and there are some wonderful beaches to the south of Syracuse but the main highlight of this location is the incredible history and architecture of this atmospheric city.

Spacious and stylish, the newly-refurbished villa is filled with natural light and fresh sea breezes, with polished wooden floors running throughout the house and several rooms looking directly out over the sea. On the ground floor, there is a dining-room with a double height ceiling and, accessed via a few steps, a bright, modern living room, with doors leading out to a small standing balcony. The kitchen is well-equipped, with a breakfast table, and double doors on to a second balcony.

The two double bedrooms are extremely roomy. The first of the two, together with one of the bathrooms, is on the ground floor. The main staircase leads up to the double bedroom and en suite bathroom on the first floor, and to a small roof terrace, with a table, chairs and umbrella, which is the ideal spot for an early morning coffee or for soaking up some rays at the end of a busy day.

Just across the road from the villa, a public sunbathing platform has direct access into the sea. There is also a pebbly beach less than 10 minutes’ walk away.

Situated in the very heart of Ortigia, the historic centre of Syracuse, the villa is perfectly placed for exploring everything there is to see in this exceptional city that was the home town of Archimedes and, for many years, was one of the four most significant cities of Ancient Greece. Stroll through the maze of narrow lanes and streets until you reach the magnificent honey-hued Piazza del Duomo, the island’s nucleus. Here, you can visit the Duomo, the Palazzo Beneventano and the church of Santa Lucia. The 13th century Castello Maniace, the Fonte Aretusa and the food market on Via de Benedictis are just a few of the other local attractions.

Syracuse’s vast archaeological park, comprising a Greek theatre, a Roman amphitheatre and several caves, is one of the city’s principal magnets and if you are visiting between May and July, you can take in a live performance of a Greek drama at the theatre. For fans of baroque architecture, the towns of Noto and Palazzolo Acreide are within easy reach, with Ragusa and Modica a little further away.

For beach-lovers who want to explore the wonderful sandy shores along Sicily’s south east tip, there are several options. To the south of Syracuse, Arenella beach and the long stretches of fine golden sand and crystal clear water at Fontane Bianche (15km from Syracuse) are great for families. Further south still, the hidden bays that border the Vendicari nature reserve, are slightly further off the beaten track, with few facilities but gorgeous powder-soft sand and translucent water.

Just next to the rear entrance to the house, there is a lovely cafè which also offers an in-villa daily breakfast service on request.

Beautiful, comfortable apartment in great location
Beautiful, spacious, tasteful apartment in a great location. Comfy beds, lots of hot water, well-functioning kitchen. Cell service spotty but you can step out on to the balcony, where it's fine. Communication was clear and prompt. The property manager, Sveta, was helpful and gave great restaurant recs.
