Great home in the city

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment in Catania. The owner, Alessio, was very kind to us. He wanted to make sure that we had a good experience in Catania. He went above and beyond what was expected. The apartment was very nicely equipped. The rooms and kitchen were really nice. I would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends. I give it my highest rating. You will not regret renting Alessio’s very nice home/apartment. It is very well located and you can walk to everything. I can’t say enough good things about this property and the owner. A home away from home 😊?

The property was well kept and facilities were of a good standard. Allessio was extremely helpful

  • 5 of 5

On entry to the apartment you note the space and attention that the owner has given to the areas. Franco explained everything in detail. My friend said Franco is a national treasure - very gentlemanly and typical Sicilian warmth. Later Allessio visited to give us details on restaurants and local sights. Breakfast stuff and refreshments were in stock for us to use.

The location of the apartment is great, within walking distance to bus stop, marina, the duomo and shopping area. We took a bus to Taomina for the day and did an Inspector Montalbano tour of the area where the series was filmed.

Will definitely recommend to friends and will come again to stay here

American Friendly Stay in Catania

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I flew from different U.S. cities and met in Catania. We don't speak Italian. We phoned Alessio from the airport, rented a car and were greeted at the apartment by Franco and Alessandro. They showed us how to do everything we needed to know and answered our vast number of questions. Franco even taught me how to make Espresso. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. If you choose to stay in this apartment, you will have the experience of living a typical Catania lifestyle. The kitchen had all we needed for breakfast, even the coffee was provided. The grocery store is just down the street on the same block. There is an excellent bakery up the street the other way as well as cafes. We didn't cook too many meals there as we were out each day exploring Sicily. We parked our rental car on the right side of the street each night for free. You just have to be a really good at parallel parking and learn exactly where parking is allowed. The apartment is quite large with 3 bedrooms. We only used two of the bedrooms and each bedroom had its own bathroom which was great. I chose the bedroom upstairs which has narrow, steep stairs leading to it. My bedroom overlooked the courtyard and the other one overlooked the street. The street is a very busy one with lots of traffic. If you are a city dweller you will feel right at home. My daughter lives in D.C., so she was fine with this. There is no central heating and cooling. We were there for 2 1/2 weeks over Thanksgiving and towards the end we felt a little cool but still we did not use the space heater. I don't know how hot Catania gets in the summer. The apartment was clean and beds were comfortable. After one week Alessandro cleaned the apartment and changed the sheets and towels. Alessio answered all of my e-mails very quickly. The apartment had WiFi which was very important to us as we didn't have a data plan for Italy. The location of this apartment is walking distance to downtown Catania with all of its good restaurants, markets and amazing historical sites. We also found it easy to access the A18 highway to get to Taormina and the north side of Etna. My son was stationed on the U.S. naval base in Sigonella and we found it to be 20-30 minutes to get there depending on traffic. We also found Siracusa and Noto to be only about 1 1/2 hours away. And of course Mt. Etna is very close. The airport is 20 minutes away. We enjoyed staying in this apartment.

Séjour à Catane

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été reçu par le papa d'Alessio avec beaucoup d'attention. Nous étions en avance sur l'horaire donné mais il été déjà là. Appartement convenable puisque nous ne faisions qui dormir. Toutefois, les pièces manquent de luminosité puisqu'elles donnent sur un puits de jour

d'une cour intérieure. Par contre beaucoup de générosité de la part d'ALESSIO. Il a pris le temps de nous expliquer son quartier, les lieux d'intérêts, les restos sympas ( de très bons choix ) et que dire du garde manger.... Eau, biscuits, lait, café etc.. rien ne manquait. VRAIMENT PARFAIT. Très bon rapport qualité -prix. UN GRAND MERCI

Sehr italienisch!

  • 3 of 5

Wir sind sehr freundlich vom Vermieter am Flughafen in Empfang genommen worden und zur Ferienwohnung gefahren worden. Der Vermieter war sehr bemüht, uns hilfsbereit zur Seite zu stehen und hat uns auch mit einem Stadtplan versorgt und Ausgehtipps (z.B. Restaurants, Strandbars...) empfohlen.

Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und sauber und hat uns einen schönen Aufenthalt beschert- auch den Kindern hat es gut gefallen und sie hatten viel Platz zum Spielen.

In der Übergangszeit von Winter zum Frühling war es an manchen Tagen etwas kühl in der Wohnung. Die Ausstattung der Küche (z.B. Besteck) hätte etwas grosszügiger sein können.

Die Anbindung an den Bahnhof und auch zum Flughafen ist gut. Wir konnten z.B. Problemlos mit dem Zug nach inen Tagesausflug nach Taormina machen.

In der Nähe der Wohnung ist ein grosser Markt, der täglich vormittags geöffnet ist und ein buntes Treiben herrscht, ein Supermarkt ist um die Ecke, ein gutes Cafe und ein Bäcker ebenfalls.

Einzig die Lage der Wohnung hat uns nicht so gut gefallen Richtung Via Etnea (Stadtzentrum), weil man doch so einige Fussstrecke mit den Kindern zurücklegen musste und das Stadtviertel, in dem das Appartment liegt, eher zu einem ärmlicheren Viertel zählt und eher heruntergekommen wirkte in manchen Gassen mit viel Müll auf den Strassen.... (vielleicht ist das zu bemängeln nun auch einfach sehr deutsch...).

Aber ansonsten war die Woche sehr erholsam und wird uns lange in schöner Erinnerung bleiben.

Vielen Dank für unseren Cataniaurlaub - wirklich eine Reise wert.
