House Rules

Nell'appartamento è assolutamente vietato fumare (lo potete fare in terrazza ovviamente). Non sono ammessi cani nè bambini sotto i 12 anni. Il motivo per cui non accettiamo bambini è per tutelare la pace e la tranquillità degli ospiti negli altri appartamenti e anche perché l'appartamento in sé non è idoneo ai bambini (ad esempio, la scala che porta al secondo piano è stata realizzata senza protezione in quanto esteticamente più bella).
Per check-in dopo le ore 20.00 addebitiamo un extra-charge di Euro 20

A beautiful flat that is well appointed. Decorated beautifully and extremely comfortable. Lovely terraces to enjoy your morning coffee on that offered a sea view. Andrea was a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.

We stayed here as two couples, the apartment is lovely, clean, bright,and very comfortable. Its located in a really nice residential area, you can walk everywhere in Ortigia from the apartment and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to friends and family. The terraces are a real asset, there are 3, one with loungers, another with outdoor dining facilities, and the smaller one great for drying clothes. The kitchen has all the equipment needed if you want to cook and eat in, we did this one evening having bought fabulous fresh produce from the daily market which is 5 minutes walk away. Alice who met us when we arrived was really helpful, she told us everything we needed to know about the place, and had a local map already marked up for us with great restaurants and places of interest. I would also like to thank Andrea for all his help - we left a mobile phone behind in the apartment but didn't realise until we had reached the airport. Andrea found the mobile phone for us and sent it via courier to the UK the very next day.

We had a great stay at Andreas apartment! Quick replies in communication, Andrea arranged transfer to and from the airport etc. His assistant was very helpful with our questions on local transportation etc. The apartment is great, beside the three terraces there are also two smaller balconies (in the bathroom and in the large bedroom)! The kitchen terrace has a beautiful view over the rooftops of Ortygia and the sunset. The bathroom is not pictured but was very good. The kitchen is not very well equipped but has basic tools for cooking breakfast and lighter meals. Stairs to the apartment are quite steep and narrow but for a fully mobile person it's no problem. Neighborhood is nice, mostly a residential area but restaurants etc are in walking distance. The apartment is close to the local market where you can buy vegetables, meat and fish (closes around 1-2 pm) There is a wonderful deli store (with an outdoor lunch restaurant that serves antipasti/tapas-style platters that is a must have) at the market. If you go a bit south on Ortigia, there are a couple of places with some access to the water, but it is more suitable for a quick swim then hanging out. Swimming sandals is a must, the rocks are sharp. If you are prepared to climb some rocks and dive into the water it is possible to take a swim a bit closer to the apartment.

Good location, nice old and decorated house. Hand over of keys and introduction well organised. We loved Ortigia with the old streets, nice restaurants, culture and the location close to the sea.

We had an incredible stay at Andrea's beautiful Fortuna Terraces apartment! The weather was very good and we had a lot of fun discovering Ortigia – the apartment is conveniently located and everything can be reached easily by foot. There is a great beach (rocks / cliffs) located close to the apartment. The check-in and check-out went very smoothly, and Andrea organized a transport to the airport. He was very responsive when we had a question, and often replied within a few minutes. It can be seen that a lot of work went into designing the interior of the apartment, and we liked the beautiful furniture and interior design. The three terraces provide a lot of space and you'll have sun practically the whole day. The apartment is even more stunning than the pictures! We would definitely recommend this apartment – I already stayed at quite a lot of Airbnb apartments, but this one is truly special. Thanks again for the opportunity and the friendly welcome, we will be back soon hopefully!

Pictures are exactly what it looks like. The house interior is beautiful and tasteful. We felt home right away. Most important to me, it's very clean and the service and communication by Andrea is great. The terraces top floor is a big plus, lovely to relax before going out or to have a nice dinner at home. For dinner out of home the best restaurants and places are surrounding the appartement. Thank you very much Andrea!

Hi my name is Andrea, I live and work in Milan, in the north of Italy.
I have a passion for interior design and architectual project. When I bought my first house in Ortigia (Syracuse-Sicily) it immediately became my preferred place where to spend my long weekends and holidays. Now I have purchased and restored different apartments and villa in Ortigia and Noto, which I lend to friends and nice travellers.
Luckily I have a great partner helping me in Siracusa to handle all this and help my guests to feel at home and enjoy the best out of their holidays. I also created a staff of people for cleaning and check-in.

Airbnb is a great way to meet nice people and it really facilitates renting my apartments. For this reason I have recently also added the rent of a gorgeous apartment pied dans l'eau in Bellagio, Como's Lake.

My motto is: "Life must be lived at the fullest every day. If you share everything with someone it is even greater"
