A whole building in the heart of Ortigia rescued from an ancient past with an old and contemporary atmosphere. In the centre of the island, a few steps from the sea, an experience of light and beauty for an unforgettable stay.
An enchanting hideaway in the heart of Ortigia island: this is the first impression that this apartment in vicolo dell’Olivo offers, in the very heart of the Giudecca neighborhood, the old jewish quarter of the town of Siracusa.
The building has been accurately renovated and now it soars towards the blue sky of Ortigia, just a few steps away from the blue sea at the end of the alley and at a stone’s throw from the island’s main highlights.
The discovery of an amazing underground chamber during the renovation works – supposedly one of the oldest jewish baths of the town – has confirmed its role of jewish hospicium and suggested the presence of an old Synagogue on the site.
The interior shows traces of an old past combined with a refined restoration which contribute to create an environment rich with old and contemporary signs. A stone staircase dating back to the XVII century leads to a wide living room with a long and comfortable sofa, armchairs, fireplace, hi-fi stereo system which diffuses music over the house and a satellite TV.
From the living room you can head towards the most intimate side of the apartment, with the bedroom and the main bathroom, or you can climb the iron stairs leading to the second floor.
A wide and fully equipped kitchen, which features a red brick wall, lies at the heart of the second floor, rich with windows and light during the whole day with a charming view over Ortigia roofs. A hallway leads to another room with a sofa bed and to the small and characteristic second bathroom. The wide kitchen window opens onto the terrace where you can enjoy your meals al fresco or just settle back and relax.
Every room has two or three windows and the apartment is a real triumph of light and during your stay you can feel comfortably at home.
Air conditioning, heating and free wi-fi connection are available in the whole building.
You’ll have free access to the entire apartment and we will be glad to welcome you and give you useful information and advice about places to see and where to go.
Bed linen and towels are provided.
We will be always available, should you need any information or advice during your stay. You just have to call us!
La mia professione è quella di avvocato. Amo l'arte e la bellezza. Nato in una città di sole e di mare non posso che amarli altrettanto. Non posso fare a meno del mio amore e dei miei amici.Tra le mie passioni, però quella che forse mi fa sognare ancora è viaggiare per il mondo. Ora, come host, credo di conoscere i bisogni del viaggiatore, sia in termini di comodita che di consigli.
Ospito lasciando l'intera casa a disposizione, anche perchè secondo me il concetto di viaggio coincide con quello di libertà.
