We arrived at the apartment and they had kindly found us a car parking space.
The location is ideal right in the hub but quiet the apartment is spacious immaculately clean and well supplied.
The advice and friendly welcome was ideal
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment
Very efficient landlord who provided excellent service and was responsive to all communications. There is a Master suite and two secondary suites on the top floor. there are 3 bathrooms with showers. The apartment is well located, minutes from attractions and restaurants, and good value. There is an equipped kitchen with one full-size refrigerator and and a smaller one on the top floor, and good air conditioning. There is free wifi. There was some renovation work going on next door when we went in June 2017 which, until completed, could result in intermittent morning noise. There may also be an occasional party in the bar next door!
The spacious apartment is set very close to the beach/sea, cathedral and lots of excellent restaurants and shops. The decor and facilities are excellent and Francesco was a delight to communicate with from initial enquiries through to departure.
There is an excellent market that provided a source of fantastic fruit, vegetables etc. to provide the basis for meals cooked in the apartment. There were also so many wonderful restaurants (including a vegan restaurant that was good to locate). The prices were generally less expensive than England.
There is much to do in Ortigia - one of the most beautiful towns I have ever visited. There is an excellent bus/train network too. The theatres (Greek & Roman) are exceptional.
Beautiful huge apartment in the old town. Three bedrooms, study, lounge, living room, two bathrooms. Full set of home appliances. And all this in the old town, where tourists only run on a tour, and you'll be a resident of this city. There are many free Parking spaces.

As a family of four, a couple with grown up children, we found Casa Aretusa most satisfying in every respect, situated perfectly, large well tended rooms, well equipped kitchen, pricing reasonable and the staff friendly and helpful. I hope that it will stay as it is, developing it further would probably result in more expensive pricing.
