Palazzo Colpace, a nineteen century building, has been within my family for 100years. The newly renovated apartment includes two bedrooms, a large living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. A large terrace faces the sea on one side whereas a balcony offers open views of the city on the other one.
A large terrace faces the sea on one side and a balcony offers open views of the city on the other side. Wear your bathing suit and go to swim just under the Palazzo, or wear your walking shoes and wonders in the narrow streets of Ortigia, or just sit at a cafe in the main square having your gelato or sipping your favorite refreshing drink. The location of the house offers privacy, but is only an easy 10 minute walk to the main square, or the Arethusa spring, and shops with artcrafts or object of Italian design, or cafes and restaurants offering the many delicacies of Sicilian cuisine.
The living room continues onto a large terrace with two lounge chairs, a dining table and a sofa. They create a perfect spot for relaxation, private sunbathing, romantic dining, or just sea watching. The living room contains a dining table, a comfortable leather sofabed, along with a coffe table and a wall-unit equipped with TV monitor and stereo. A large glass door divides the living room from the kitchen. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, oven, microwave, washing machine, refrigerator and freezer, as well as a dining table. A second sofabed is also present in the kitchen for an extra guest or just for enjoying reading a book or a newspaper. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a wardrobe, a writing-desk, a TV monitor and a Charlotte chair. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be transformed into a queen bed upon request, a wardrobe, a writing desk and a chair. The apartment has two bathrooms with showers. One of the two bathrooms is directly accesible through the master bedroom, the other bathroom can be accessed from the apartment. A long balcony facing the old town is accessible from the master bedroom and kitchen. Each room has air conditioning and centralized heat. WI-FI is available in all rooms.

Palazzo Colpace is three minutes walking from Forte Vigliena, leading down to the water’s edge through a few steps. Forte Vigliena is open all day and offers immediate access to the cristal clear waters of the Ionian sea. The Historic Centre of Ortigia all around, with its buildings of great cultural value, make Siracusa a favourite tourist destination. Especially at night, when the streetlights of this little island create a very special atmosphere, as if one were in a stately home full of works of art and beautiful buildings for one to discover and explore.
