In the heart of Syracuse's historical centre lies island of Ortigia, selected by the Greeks as a location for founding the city. Here, in a characteristic and peaceful alley, just a few steps from Arethusa's Fountain and Piazza Duomo, in a 17th century palace is the Casa Vacanze Aretusa, a holiday house which was completely restructured in 2004.
The structure is situated a mere 50 metres away from 2 sun bathing areas: one at Arethusa's Fountain, which has a small beach; and another called the 'Lido Maniace'.
From the terrace - where it is also possible to sunbath - one may enjoy a magnificent sea view and overlook the rooftops of Ortigia.
Syracuse is the perfect spot to travel to: a gorgeous city, a relaxing one, where the coexistence and overlapping of cultures and styles and depth of Sicilian and Mediterranean history brightly spread out before the eyes even of the most uncultured of travellers.

The holiday house offers one- or two-roomed apartments, all perfectly equipped with the most modern comforts: en-suite bathrooms, linens, TV, equipped kitchenettes, refrigerators and air conditioning, free wi-fi connection, post service. Laundry service on request.

    Area information

    The classical as well as the early Christian world, the life that Arabs and Jews spent in the city (the labyrinth of narrow streets that can suddenly widen out, the courtyards inside the old houses), the remains of Gothic, Catalan - and in any case, Spanish-type - architecture, every age indeed of Sicilian, Mediterranean and European history are there represented in a way which is suggestive, not isolated as monuments and traces of a forgotten world are, not remains of a past, the echo of which reaches historians only, but in a kind of vital fusion and continuity: as if everything mingled with everything else in the most complex and widest - although sudden - concept of Baroque.
