We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this stunning, stylishly designed apartment, kitted out with all mod cons. Every evening we would take the 5-minute stroll to one of the many 'Pasticcerias' near the dome to buy the kids delicious Italian ice cream, or we would simply relax on the marvellous rooftop terrace enjoying the view of the lit medieval castle located right opposite. Perfect location!

“An incredible find..”

Taking time to research the best self catering accommodation for our 4 day trip to Catania definitely paid off here..we were amazed on entering this fabulous apartment. We received a warm welcome from Massimo & were made to feel very much at home during our stay. He was extremely helpful & attentive in advising us on the best places to visit and music venues/bars to head to.

Both the roof terraces with their unique vantage points of the castle on one side & stunning views of Etna on the other were a perfect place to relax after a day out in & around the city.

We would thoroughly recommend this apartment, no matter what your reason for visiting this city: it is the perfect base from which to explore Catania's many attractions.

What an AMAZING property! Beautiful, well located and well appointed apartment. EVERY convenience. Masimiliano is very accommodating, always available for questions. The pictures do not do it justice, and the views from the many windows and decks are amazing. I can't recommend it highly enough. WORTH EVERY PENNY. I will definitely stay here again when I return.

“Very nice and luxury apartment with excellent views”
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.”
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.
