Who we are

  1. I was born in Syracuse. I left my town for job but as soon as I had the chance I returned in Syracuse. I missed the sea and Ortigia island. My husband Massimo is from Palermo. We live in Syracuse and we have two children (aged 4 and 9).
    I’m a maths teacher but I’m primarily a traveler! I and my husband like traveling so we have a good experience about what a traveler need when he isn’t in his house. We work for making our apartments very comfortable and we would like to make a ‘home away from home’ for our guests!
    We hope to accommodate you soon in our holiday apartment and to pass you our love for Sicily!
