This contemporary apartment is situated on the first and second floors of a period building in the heart of Ortigia. It offers comfortable spaces indoors and the shaded terrace that overlooks the rooftops of Ortigia is perfect for outdoor meals .
Casa Melli is situated in the vibrant heart of Ortigia just a short stroll away from all of its main attractions. The sea around Ortigia is beautiful and the locals rarely miss a quick swim. In the summer, you will enjoy the bathing platform just a few minutes’ walk away.
The apartment is situated on the first and second floor of an elegant period building. It is composed of two interconnecting apartments that can be joined into one.
This comfortable apartment has recently been refurbished and has retained some original features, such as the original stuccos ceilings. The colour palette ranges from cream to warm cappuccino with the odd dash of cool dark grey. The owners have applied some quirky details and have made good use of the space.
On one side of the common landing, a separate entrance gives on to a spacious living room with a comfortable sofa-bed and armchair. A typically Sicilian small balcony complete with a lace curtain, looks down at the busy street. The double bedroom is simple and comfortable. It opens to the living room as well as to an intimate dining room. The kitchen has the necessary equipment to prepare a meal with the fresh ingredients bought at the nearby local market. The bathroom has an impressive large shower.
On the other side, the entrance leads to another large living room and gives on to a balcony. A sofa here also doubles up as extra sleeping space if required, and the table doubles up as a dining table or as a desk. Through a corridor is the double bedroom and its en suite bathroom. A sliding door can cleverly unite the bathroom’s large shower with the bedroom.
Through the stairway leading up to the second floor you will find a small kitchen. Here you can prepare breakfast, drinks and snacks to be consumed on the terrace. The terrace offers gorgeous views of the rooftops with a typical bamboo pergola that ensures shade on sunny days. Here you can also enjoy al fresco dining as well as lounging in traditional deckchairs.
