If you are seeking for pretty and simple accommodation in the heart of the ancient part of Siracusa, look no further. This charming and romantic little ground floor apartment will make you feel like you are one of the locals from the moment you arrive.
Casa Luisa is found in an impressive sea-facing building with a majestic wooden gate that takes you into a courtyard. The apartment is found at the back of the building and the more than stylish design and décor makes up for the lack of sea-view.
The entrance leads straight into the chic lounge and dining area – white throws, comfy sofas and wooden furniture with splashes of bright colour make for a wonderful welcome. A separate and well equipped kitchen leads off to the left and will happily be the home to many wonderful dishes should you like to cook. A shower room leads off the lounge area and a wooden staircase takes you up to the delightful mezzanine level where you will find a double bed.
There is a super little outside terrace that sits between the tightly packed old “palazzi” of Ortigia where you may enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner, murmur sweet nothings or just enjoy the warm air – day or night!
When you are ready to venture out, you will find yourself bang in the middle of Italian life and can easily stroll to the local bar for an espresso and a flip through the Gazzeta dello sport – the proper way to start the day all’Italiana! Of course you may also stroll to the archeological sites, shops, restaurants and sea-front as well.
Casa Luisa is fantastic value and highly recommended for a real taste of Sicily (and, perhaps, a little bit of romance!).
I have been really impressed by the professional yet personal service that we have received from all of the staff at Essential Italy - in 26 years of booking family holidays, I have never experienced such a first rate, comprehensive service. Thank you, once again, for all of your help with our booking, including the car hire (everything was what we’d asked for) and the English to Italian translations for my son’s peanut and nut allergy (absolutely invaluable). Please pass on our thanks to Ian, too, for taking the time to visit us and for the very welcome bottle of wine!
