Prepare to fall in love with this stylish home, set among the ancient streets and alleys of this unique island – the historic heart of Syracuse. About as authentic and charming as it gets, this place is all about exposed stone walls, shuttered windows and beamed ceilings. Mixed with modern luxuries and updated with plenty of contemporary chic, it's the perfect base for a stay right in the heart of things. And take it from us when we say you're going to love the two first-floor balconies here – they may be small but they're super cute. Set over two main floors, the master suite is the first room you'll come across – and what a knockout it is. Elegant and spacious, it comes with high ceilings, stone floors and an arch across the large bed, not to mention the huge walk-in shower. The floor above is where you'll find the open-layout living room, with a cosy sofa, dining table and perfectly practical kitchen, all topped off by French doors to two sides opening out to your balconies. And further steps lead to a dreamy mezzanine bedroom and bathroom. Head outside and you're never far from an important historical site, gorgeous restaurant or stunning sea view. With the whole island at your fingertips, you can even join a walking tour so you don't miss a thing.
