TravelPod Member ReviewsDes Etrangers Hotel & Spa Syracuse
Des Etrangers Hotel is located on the shores of the gorgeous island of Ortygia. It is ideally situated for strolls to the local historic sites, interesting shops and fascinating narrow lane ways of Syracuse. Formerly an old private home, the hotel has been beautifully restored to its former glory, with wonderful marble flooring, and adorned with fine furnishings. Rooms are tastefully appointed - if a little dark and austere - and very comfortable. Our room had a small balcony with splendid views of the Ionian Sea. The beautiful top floor bar and dining room has fantastic views and is a wonderful place to while away a few very pleasant hours over a gin and tonic - or two.

... with the cathedral was very unique. The cathedral itself used to be an ancient temple that was converted into a church afterwards, but the pillars are still very visible in the church.
From there we went back to our home to have a cooling dive into the little pool and cool down after the heated day. Despite all the nice things we see, the warmth is still a challenge and the amount of water to drink to stay alive ...
We arrived at Syracuse and this stay is like a lazy one but today we went out for a walk around town.
And this place is so pretty I love it, its like the style that I like, and we were walking by the waters edge.
Today we drove to a place nearby and straight away I found a ...
... February this year, and adds to an understanding of the enormity of the original villa.
Again we benefited from the knowledge and passion of a local guide!
We then travelled on to Syracuse, an ancient town by the sea that apparently once rivalled Athens as the most Important city of the Greek world.
Our hotel tonight, Hotel Alfeo, is again well positioned in the old city, within short ...
