Historical Traveler Reviews Lady Lusya Hotel Syracuse
Just returned from our trip to Sicily. We spent four nights at the above hotel. Lovely place with gracious staff. Good restaurant with typical Sicilian food at fair prices. Other than a too firm mattress we enjoyed our stay and would return.
Perfect place for a relaxing break
We recently travelled to Sicily with our 2 year old daughter and spent 2 nights at the Lady Lusya, but would have loved to have stayed longer. Its been restored with great care and style and is beautifully located amongst lemon and orange tree groves, a short drive from Syracusa and the sea. Our room was spacious and very attractive (but the suite next door looked amazing) and the staff extremely helpful and attentive. They made us all feel very welcome and comfortable and were lovely to our daughter who had a wonderful time there. We're already planning a return visit and would certainly recommend it.
Excellent base for exploration
We stayed in Lady Lusya the whole family: 7 people from 7 to 71 year old. The children loved the pool after long day trips to explore the towns of Val di Noto, Siracusa and Caltagirone, Mount Etna and Taormina. Extremely nice people, decent restaurant, extraordinary environment. Will go there again, probably as soon as next year. Good highway nearby, easy to travel anywhere.
Don't Miss This Jewel!
Don't miss this jewel! Reasonably priced and located ideally for visiting places in southeastern Sicily. Nearby highways made it easy. The Lady Lusya was the highlight of our visit to Sicily.
Owners Piero and Lucy are gracious and friendly hosts and the staff couldn't be more helpful - in our case helping to make some difficult changes in our travel arrangements. The hotel is comfortable, beautifully decorated and has a great pool and beautiful grounds. It sits in the middle of many acres of citrus trees.
Plan on dinner at the hotel more than once (the menu changes daily ) - they have a truly gourmet chef.
We can't wait to have another visit to The Lady Lusya. The beauty and charm of this centuries-old manor house are not to be missed.
This hotel was absolutely beautiful, breakfast was wonderful and the pool was delightful overlooking the sicilian hills. For us, this was the most charming of all Sicily areas and our stay at the Lusya was just absolutely perfect .
We just got back from Sicily and had a wonderful experience at the gorgeous Lady Lusya. The service was impeccable and extremely friendly. The hotel was a beautiful antique villa surrounded by a lemon groves garden in a very quite setting .
It had great amenities such as a great pool in the garden , very nice breakfast with a great buffet spread, beautiful bathrooms and general exquisite decor. We used the restaurant for a couple of dinners and truly enjoyed it . The location was great - a less than 10 minute drive to Syracusa and 15 minutes to Noto and just 5 minutes from a wonderful public beach called Jelsomineto . The staff was extremely courteous and helpful expecially the owners . We had booked a standard room with a standing balcony but when we got there they had upgraded us to a beautiful junior suite with a wrap around balcony with table and chairs and lounge chairs for sunning overlooking the ocean - at no extra cost. It was amazing! We would highly recommend staying at the lady Lusya - it was our last stop in Sicily and the most enjoyable and memorable together with Villa Ducale in Taormina ! Sicily is really wonderful .
A very romantic and charming Hotel
I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful Hotel with very kind staff and owners
Romantic and charming in all senses
We stayed at this wonderful country hotel at incredibly cheap rate in a antique pink pasteled charming palace surrounded by lemon trees and flowers .We found it convenient for visiting the beautiful town of Syracuse and Noto ( both 15 minutes drive by expressway) and happy to come back to enjoy the quiet well appointed swimming pool in the garden . The room was elegant in typical classy italian style and the owner Lucy and Piero were fantastic hosts . Good breakfast and dinner with local simple dishes .
This place is truly romantic !!

... have everything from your choice of eggs, yoghurt, fresh fruit (platters of passion fruit), croissants, etc etc! Lunch if you're on board is equally amazing with today being a smorgasbord through the galley - seafood, pork, beef, sushi. Just everything imaginable. The dessert table was heaving with a bombe alaska and croquenbuche (neither the iPad nor I can spell this)! Plus heaps more. I'm getting SO fat I'll have to diet for a month when we get ...
Wow - I have to say that Italy still has my vote. Croatia is nice and I know lots of our friends rave about it and the whole Dalmatian coast but Italy has it in spades. Sicily was spectacular and we are thinking to include it in our 2015 travels. Syracuse is just beautiful with lovely old buildings, quaint streets and magnificent churches - no ...
... both Greek and Roman times. The Duomo in Ortygia was originally a 5th century BC Greek Temple that was converted into a church when the island was evangelised by St Paul.
It has been very interesting walking around this ancient place and trying to absorb a little of the history. We went the main archeological site dating back to 5th century BC.
Then, a little later we visited the Santuario della Madonna ...
Driving in Sicily is exciting, challenging and is best undertaken after five or more expresso coffees, several sugar laden brioche and a constant supply of cigarettes. The following key principles apply:
- Driving a vehicle must be undertaken at the maximum speed possible without coming into contact with something or someone.
- Traffic lanes are a guide only. ...
... we opened the door! Bellisimo!! it was like walking into paradise!! The views were to die for, with a long balcony giving an 180° view of the sea and across to Ortigia. The sea was just below and we could hear the waves it was great and so we began a wonderful week exploring beautiful Siracusa. The old city Ortigia was about 15 - 20 minute walk from the apartment or there were little electric city buses that ran intermittently - with very puzzling timetables, ...
