Great apartment with everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. The outside pool and facilities contribute to make it exceptional, as do the attentive and generous nature of hosts Ivana and Sebastiano who live upstairs. Upon arrival, they provided us with refreshments and nibbles outside, facing the magnificent swimming pool and continued to produce pasta dishes/ meals and Sicilian treats e.g. gelatos, Sicilian coffee and souvenirs for our children for the duration of our stay. If we mentioned directions or visiting a local site or amenity, they jumped into their car and had us follow them, waiting until we were safely parked before leaving. Any occasional language difficulties were easily overcome with the use of google translate.
It would be important to have a car for this location and to find the house, it is better to come off the motorway at Syracuse Nord, and follow signs for Belvedere which is a small town, located very near the house. There is a pizzeria L’Ottavo Peccato (the 8th sin) within walking distance, as is the historic site Castello Eurialo, although the latter was closed “for 3 months for cleaning” at the time of our holiday. It is a 5-10 minute car drive into the centre of Syracuse but street parking is easy to find. Overall, a wonderful holiday experience, greatly added to by our magnificent hosts.
