“Perfect location and hospitality”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We booked the combo apartments with friends for 2 weeks on this beautiful island.

The apartments are beautifully decorated and comfortable and Giuseppina the owner proved a perfect host. She helped us arrange a private garage nearby, (essential if you want a car as off street parking is only for permit holders) translated for us when we had crisis with a hire car and was available but not obtrusive to advise on places to visit and local customs etc. Although the apartments don't have washing machines, Giuseppina arranged laundry collection and return at a very reasonable price.

Ortigia has so much to offer, all on our doorstep. A vast choice of bars and restaurants, lovely shops, markets and superb historical buildings as well as museums and historical sites.

Day trips to Noto, Tiormina Etna and the local beaches and lidos provided lots of variety, but we had as much pleasure sauntering around the streets of Ortigia and lazing in the bars by the harbour, watching the comings and goings of the superyachts and passers by.

All in all a lovely stay highly recommended.

“5 Stars!”
Reviewed December 2, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We loved our stay in Casa Nizza. Friends and I rented two of the three apartments a ailable, and we could not have been happier. The location is ideal, our host was friendly and helpful, and the apartments were very clean and beautifully furnished. The artwork alone is incredible. We will be stsying here again next year, and look forward to having a glass of wine on the veranda overlooking the sea.

We enjoyed our stay in beautiful Ortigia, our comfortable, spotlessly clean apartment was in the perfect location to access the whole island with a wide range of restaurants, galleries and museums nearby. There was a wonderful sea view from the terrace and it was just a short walk to the swimming platform nearby.

Our friendly welcoming host Guiseppina, really helped to make our holiday a great experience. We really appreciated her knowledge of the area and she was only to happy to help us who r reverend she could.

My host, the lovely Guiseppina, couldn't do enough to make my stay more enjoyable. I was met at the end of the street where we had arranged for the taxi driver to deliver me and shown to the most gorgeous apartment. It was recently renovated and was just delightful....huge comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and large airey dining, kitchen, living area. I felt immediately 'at home' as I was shown all the other amenities and particularly loved the upstairs courtyard above the amazingly blue ocean. Casa Nizza is in a lovely part of the island and only minutes from fabulous eateries and tourist attractions. I particularly enjoyed wandering along the cute little streets taking turns left and right just to see where I'd end up because being on a reasonably small island you can't really get lost, you just discover more great places!! I liked being able to get on one of the three electric tourist bus lines and be at a location within minutes. I would really have liked to stay longer at this beautiful property and to spend more time getting to know the lovely Guiseppina. I highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

We have just returned from a two week stay at Casa Nizza and we had the most wonderful time. The Court Yard apartment is beautiful and has a feeling of space as it has a bed room up stairs and second small bathroom. The little court yard is perfect for alfresco lunch or just sitting sipping a glass of wine. The roof terrace is fabulous with a wonderful view of the sea which is intoxicating!
Our host Guiseppina was wonderful and full of great advice and recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Although there was plenty to do in Ortigia and Syracuse we were content some days to just chill on the terrace.
We will most definitely be back and we recommend Casa Nizza to everyone!
The two other apartments are equally beautiful and it would work well for friends or a larger family to take two or all three apartments together.

“Best place to stay in Ortigia”

My husband, children and I stayed in Casa Nizza (Combo by the Sea) early this April. We were thrilled with our accommodations, and they surpassed our expectations in every way. As the photos demonstrate, it is a clean, bright modern double-flat, fabulously furnished and decorated. The beds are very comfortable, the sitting room cheerful, and the bathrooms very chic. Then, two other particular aspects of the property are – its location, and its owner. The flat is located in a beautiful and quiet area of the town, away from the throngs of tourists. In addition, the beautiful blue sea is just in front of the palazzo, and with the flat's easy access to the terrace, we were able to enjoy stunning morning views of a serene sea, and enjoy aperitivos in the evening with a refreshing breeze. Giuseppina, the owner, goes out of her way to explain the best places to dine, stroll, partake in wine-tasting, enjoy scenic drives, go shopping and so on. She is thoughtful and knowledgeable, and speaks excellent English.
