Property was comfy. Really good location
Massimiliano was brilliant. He was very welcoming and full of tips on what to do and where to go. He put us in touch woth a tour up mount etna and a winery, which is a must.
When alerted to an oversight in the flat he immediately attended to it.
Offered help at the end of a phone if needed and organised transport to airport.
Very nice man, very nice city!
Nice apartment in Catania center
Nice and clean apartment, located in Catania city centre. All monuments or even bus station are within walking distance.
Fantastic apartment: bright and spacious with 2 newly renovated terrace spaces!
Our stay in Catania was a great experience! Thanks to Massimiliano, we had a wonderful stay in his apartment that was walking distance from all the city centre sights, being located in a lively and popular zone around the medieval castle. The apartment was extremely clean and had all possible amenities, plenty of natural light and a lovely homely feel to it. We were amazed by the newly renovated terraces: the top/roof terrace in particular was great to relax in the sun after a day's touring and we also enjoyed dining in the bottom terrace. Highly recommended!
Appartement très propre, calme et très bien situé, à 5 mn à pied du centre-ville. Le propriétaire est très gentil et aide en cas de problèmes d'intendance. Il manque un peu de lumière dans la salle de bains au-dessus du miroir. Bonne adresse pour un séjour à Catane.
comodo pulitissimo e assolutamente confortevole.
il proprietario e i suoi collaboratori sempre cortesi e gentili ma sopratutto a completa disposizione. mi sono trovato benissimo e di certo sarà il mio punto di riferimento ogni qualvolta dovrò recarmi a catania....
Sehr schön und mitten im historischen Zentrum
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht um hier einen tollen Urlaub zu verbringen. Es gibt zwei Terrassen mit Sonne und direkt vor der Haustür befindet sich das erste historische Monument. Die Lage ist genial. In fünf Minuten zu Fuß ist man am Domplatz, dem Hauptplatz von Catania. Zwei Minuten von der Wohnung entfernt beginnt der täglich stattfindende Markt, wo man Obst, Gemüse, Käse, Fleisch und Fisch kaufen kann. Rund um die Wohnung befinden sich Restaurants und kleine Geschäfte. Trotzdem ist sie ruhig. Auch der Hafen ist weniger als 1 km entfernt. Man benötigt hier wirklich kein Auto. Wenn man dennoch eines hat, gibt es hier keine Parkplatzprobleme. Möchte man lieber mit dem Bus unterwegs sein, ist der Busbahnhof auch in 5-10 Minuten zu erreichen und einfach zu finden.
Ich habe mich hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und bei allem sehr hilfsbereit. Er ist immer zu erreichen und gibt auch gerne Tipps für schöne Ausflugsziele. Schade, dass mein Urlaub viel zu schnell zu Ende war. Ich kann die Wohnung sehr empfehlen.
