Dammuso in a pedestrian area on Ortigia Island, very particular in its kind, just restored in a contemporary way to meet in the past with the present. Ideal for a couple, max family three children. Ideal location.

The space

It makes this house almost unique that it is a dammuso and is 100mt from Piazza Duomo in a walkway in the pedestrian area of Ortigia. Visit Ortigia, an island in the island full of history and culture and staying in a dammuso that brings you back to the past makes your holiday truly unique and magical.
It can accommodate up to 5 people but also ideal for a couple.

Guest access

As a vacation home, during your stay period you will be the only one living in the house and you will have access to everything without any bans. There is also access to a common internal courtyard.

Interaction with guests

I am Maria, interior design, practically in love with Ortigia and my dammuso, I have restored it with love and cared in details to let anyone who lives, feels cuddly and completely at ease. Do my utmost availability before and during your stay, but I will not be present as I live in another home.

Other things to note

The entrance to the house is completely private and in a truly beautiful setting, it directly overlooks the Via del Crocifisso.

Maria gave us a warm welcome and some really helpful notes about what we should do in the area. The flat is wonderful - the location could not be better (so central yet in a quiet old beautiful street) - the decor is very simple and minimalist but aesthetically pleasing - and all basics were well catered-for. Maria lives outside the city so we were left entirely to our own devices throughout the stay. Thank you Maria - I will definitely recommend your apartment to any friends who wish to stay in Syracuse/Ortigia.

Maria's parents warmly welcomed us whilst Maria was away on holiday. They waited for us to come over from the airport. The house was just cleaned when we arrived and everything was exactly as the website shows. Actually even better! We didn't expect to find such a big house. We were 2 and we have lots of comfort. The location is great...just a quick walk to the wonderful Piazza Duomo and to the main road for cabs and buses. Ortigia is wonderful. Staying at its middle is simply a romantic luxury! I hope to go back to Sicily next summer and I would definitely stay at Maria's place again. I highly recommend it. Thank you for hosting us. Nadia

The house is perfectly situated close to the Domo of Syracuse Ortigia, The heart of the pesdestrian's street. We were welcomed by the parents of Maria, who were really attentive to our installation and comfort. We had a little problem with the bathroom door but they made our best to solve it as quick as possible.

Maria is a wonderful host and her apartment is fantastic. As I had a car for the week she arranged to meet me and show me where to park. Without her I am sure I would have got ticket or had the car towed. She showed us the immediate area to the apartment, where we could get a morning coffee and bakery items, she informed us about good restaurants and cafés and generally ensured we were sorted for the week. She even provided us with breakfast items, water etc and a guide book in english and a local map - brilliant. The apartment is in a pedestrian only area but is right on the doorstep for the Duomo right in the heart of this town. The photos are an accurate representation of the apartment. The large bedroom with a double and a single we found very comfortable. The apartment was naturally very cool but aircon is available and there are extra covers if you were to get chilly in the night. We had an wonderful week in Maria's home and would definitely come back and stay here again. For those geeks out there that require internet, Wifi is available in virtually all cafés and restaurants. The small bakery just at the top of the street where the apartment is located, is a great place to log in in the mornings have a cuppa and a pastry and watch the world go by outside in the Duomo. My overall advice would be unless you have a real need to explore far afield forget the car. Use the bus/train system which will get you to all main locations, there are even excursions to Etna if you feel the need to (email hidden) volcano! Even with a reasonable level of fitness you will be able to walk all round this little island and Syracuse. We considered driving first to the amphitheatre in Syracuse but walked in the end and it was so interesting. It is not that far (took us 20mins), and we were able to stop of at churches, museums etc on route. Just make use you have lots of water no matter what you do. It gets very hot in the summer. June for me was pleasant, but I would not want it any hotter. Overall great location, amazing host - stay here.

Ciao, sono una donna completamente innamorata di Ortigia, ho una bambina di otto anni e sono sposata. Lavoro e ho ricominciato a studiare, infatti mi sono iscritta alla facoltà di Architettura. Tengo molto ai rapporti sociali e per fortuna ho molte persone veramente amiche, vivo in una casa di campagna vicino al mare, ho due cani e vado in Ortigia per i fine settimana.
Mi piace mettere a disposizione il mio dammuso perchè quando ci vado io, trascorro dei giorni bellissimi, trovandosi in una posizione centrale e in zona pedonale, mi piace tanto godermi l'isola a piedi o in bicicletta.
Vivi, lascia vivere e aiuta sempre chi ha bisogno.
