“Very nice and luxury apartment with excellent views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment is great and the location is excellent in the center of Catania.
Sights, restaurants, bars and the shopping streets are very close (5 mins walking). The beach (nice beachbars/lidos) is 5-10 minutes driving by car.
The apartment has a huge living/dining room, kitchen and 2 terraces with very nice views. The kitchen is fully equipped. It's easy to make your own espresso, fruit juice or barbecue.
The owner Massimiliano has a great collection of music and movies, of which you can make use of.

“Terrific condo; nicely furnished and had all the amenities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Only negative comment is the unit is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator. Bring up suitcases was a chore. I personally had a hip problem, so it was difficult to negotiate the stair climbing.

“Beautiful apartment in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

What a beautiful apartment in a perfect location to explore Catania. We stayed for 5 days with our twin daughters (1 year old) and had a fabulous time. Max was always on hand to help out with any questions we had. What great memories we have of sitting on the terrace having an evening meal overlooking the castle. Idyllic! Highly recommend as a base in Catania!

“Great and elegant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The apartment was great, very spacious, clean and elegant. With nice furniture from famous designers.

The apartment has incredible view to Castello Ursino, and located a nearby of street market with a lot of fruits, vegetables and all typical sicilian products. Also nearby famous fish market, where we got fantastic fresh fish for a dinner last night.
It is a great location for exploring city. I could walk within 5 minutes to Dom Square.I did day trips to Siracusa and Taormina from here.

Massimiliano are super helpful and very nice, hi created also nice atmosphere in the house. I would definitely recommend this house to creative people or family. I hope to visit it again.
