“Unique property”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

When we booked this house we weren't sure if it would look as good as it did on photos but to our surprise it exceeded all expectations. The house is completely unique and fairy tale like with 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms(+3 extra beds), garden, terrace and 2 living rooms. The host is really friendly, flexible with check in time and gave us loads of useful tips. There is a fish pond in the garden and when you think that you've explored it all you still keep finding unique touches like mills on the wall which rotate, screen with sea view above the stairs, light at the end of the boat-bed. It's difficult to imagine how one person could design such a beautiful home with so many creative elements. Bus 536 stops really close by and goes to the centre. If you are tired of waiting for the bus(transport in catania is pretty terrible) you can always order radio taxi which has cheap rates.
There's a bar Castillo which makes the best aranchini and a supermarket. Also when we were there there was a band playing in the park near the castle, very close to the house, as part of the music festival.

You don't need to bring towels but bring shampoo, all kitchen utensils are already there. There's a tv , air con and fans through out the house. Also there is a stone pizza oven!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back again if we were to visit catania again!
