What an amazing place to stay. When the big tour boat from Ortigia passes this bay, they point to these houses and say, “That is where the rich people live.” And I wanted to say, “But I live there this week!” Great apartment, with everything you could need to make your vacation complete, and a terrace you may never want to leave, with a view to die for. This was just so convenient. You step out of the gate straight onto the beach, with a wonderfully shallow and warm sea, and if you get tired of your own beach, there’s one that’s even more stunning three minutes’ walk away. There are 4 or 5 restaurants within 5 minutes’ drive of the apartment (2 within walking distance), so although the kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, it’s just so convenient to go out in the evening and eat fresh seafood overlooking the bay. If you need supplies, there is a little supermarket just a few minutes’ drive down the road which will also make sandwiches and other take-away food and has some of the best olives I’ve tasted. And it’s only a short drive to get into Syracuse and Ortigia to go sightseeing, knowing you can come home at the end of the day to your own personal slice of heaven and relax in the garden.
On a practical level, there is private parking in a secure gated compound, so I never had to worry about my car. There are also some lovely walks on the cliffs around the reserve of Plemmirio, which I particularly enjoyed. Would highly recommend a stay here. I will be back.
