Penthouse in the heart of Ortigia - Syracuse

The space

A wonderful design apartment above the roofs of Ortigia and facing the open sea.
This is an ideal nest for a couple looking for a unique place with charme. The bedroom is positioned in the center of the room so that you can see the sea in front of you simply laying on the bed. Living room and kitchen face a beautiful and cosy terrace, rich in plants and with a big dining table. The terrace faces west and offers a great view on the roofs of Ortigia houses.
The interior design and decor presents sicilian furnitures together with other objects collected from travels around the world. This is a very special place for me and I hope it will be the same for you!

The apartment is located in inside Ortigia island not far from the pittoresque fresh fruit and fish market. In few minutes you can reach any corner of Ortigia island.

It is possible to park you car at 50mt open air, or at covered parking named Talete (payment parkikng).

Great apartment located on the top floor of the building. The balcony/terrace has views across the rooftops of Ortigia, and it was quite fascinating to see all the activity and life taking place above the streets below. We loved the bedroom and being able to view the sea without even getting out of bed. The apartment is a short walk to all the main attractions with a daily market nearby. Perfect for all our needs. Highly recommend. Janice and Clive Leeds, UK

The apartment is really great, perfect for two and the terrace is a lovely place to relax over a leisurely lunch or sunbathe. Location is also really good, close to the sea and a few minutes walk away from the main piazzas and market. It was surprisingly quiet at night. The view from the bedroom to the sea is lovely. The apartment is larger than it looks in the photos and there is plenty of space for hanging clothes, etc. Bed was comfortable, nice to have a cleaner every day, recommendations for food were spot on, Andrea also arranged taxi to and from airport - couldn't fault it and would be very happy to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Andrea's apartment. The communication was excellent at all times. Alice was very helpful and understanding with our changing arrival times, and loss of communication when we entered a tunnel! Everything in the apartment was as pictured. We knew about the stairs but they were steeper and narrower than we expected. We were very grateful for Andrea's help in carrying our luggage down on checkout. We loved the nearby market, and ate breakfast at Fratelli Burgio each morning. Stumbled into Antica Locanda da Umberto for dinner on our first night - it was close, and it was late.The food was so good and the experience so pleasant that we went back on our last night. The Tonno Arrosto was to die for. Had thought to try Sicilia in Tavola, and were able to get a table but once we sat down and looked at the menu we decided it wasn't for us. Don't miss the experience of wandering the tiny alleyways of Ortigia!

We stayed here for a week in April and it was amazing! The apartment is actually bigger than the pictures suggest and the terrace is a really good size and a real sun trap. We were after a relaxing holiday with some light sight seeing so Ortigia was spot on for that. We would wander around the beautiful town in the mornings, do a shop at the market which is just around the corner from the flat, then have lunch on the terrace and enjoy relaxing in the flat before heading out for dinner. Everything in Ortigia is walkable, although if you're planning lots of day trips a car is advised. Everything about the flat and Andrea's assistance in checking in was brilliant and I suspect will return one day.

Casa Cielo is a lovely apartment and well situated in Ortigia. As others have mentioned, the apartment is very comfortable, beautiful view from the bed and the terrace is an added bonus. Andrea is an incredibly warm, welcoming, and organized host. Alice, the person who greeted us when we arrived, was also very helpful and kind. We loved taking day trips outside of Siracusa. Marzamemi shouldn't be missed in the warmer months. Great experience all around!

This is the second apartment we have rented from Andrea and it didn't disappoint. The apartment is better than it looks in the pictures. Great location with a sea view from the bedroom. Andrea and his friend Alice were very helpful checking us in and giving us all the info we needed. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting the beautiful Ortigia.

Andrea was extremely helpful and a great communicator. The apartment is beautiful and the neighbourhood is great. Ortigia is a very special and unique place that you must go to. The apartment has a great location and you can walk everywhere. Andrea recommended some restaurants and beaches that was very good too. I 100% recommend staying here. Once again the apartment was both clean, cozy and beautiful, very much worth it. Regards, Teresa and Josh

Andrea User Profile

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"
