Why The Owner chose San Gregorio di Catania

(Automatic translation) VILLA LINDA is located in the foothills north of the city of Catania, on the 330 m. m., near the small town of San Gregorio, said "Balcony of Catania."

In 800, our grandparents, like other families Catania each year, in the second half of June were moving - on holiday - San Gregorio, to escape the summer heat of the city and enjoy the cool night air and the health move from winds, which slid down from the volcano Etna.

In San Gregorio, grandparents had an estate vineyard, part of a large and ancient feud Bourbon, where there was a house-villa typical Etna, which was the delight of us all children and cousins ​​who came to visit us, and that in 'arc of years, they had spent in San Gregorio, a few weeks of their hot summer Catania.

After the unification of Italy, the grandparents - since the family was larger and larger - wanted to build a real house, you can live the whole year.

Around the 2000s the large residence was renovated and adapted to modern living requirements.

VILLA LINDA remained for nearly a century partially inhabited by the custodians and deep restructuring, but leaving out the elements and styles of nineteenth-century construction: monolithic jambs lava stone square, shaped, carved and hammered a chisel, porch with arch of the Romanesque style carved in white stone of Noto, just as you can see in the old family photos.

Sicilian Hospitality

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great vacation in Sicily in August (from 7th to 14th) and one of the most enjoyable things, was our stay in VILLA LINDA, in San Gregorio Di Catania. The house was perfect, better than the description on homelidays, illuminated, with a positive aura. Our hosts, Giuseppe and Lidia were there to salute us, help us, and guide us in our journey to discover Sicily. Their hospitality was unique, and as a Greek, I should say that it reminded us of the Greek "philoxenia". We found a home at VILLA LINDA.

We hope to be able to visit again in the near future.

We had the greatest time ever, the owners are extremely nice people, were very friendly and helpful. The place is very well located, in a calm street, although only a 15 minutes from the busy Catania. The access is easy by car. The place is well equipped, cosy and adorable in every sense. Pictures are very faithful to the reality. Thank you very much Lidia & Guiseppe, you were great, hope to see you soon!

Very very good

  • 5 out of 5
The house was as described, clean and well maintained.

Welcome by Giuseppe was very warm and friendly. There was also a big bowl full of fruit and a bottle of red wine as a nice surprise for us.

Giuseppe is a fantastic host and also helped us to make the most of our vacation with informing us about the most interesting places to visit.

This is certainly a place we would suggests to friends and family.

Thanks Giuseppe for everything you did for us.

séjour très agréable

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons appréciés notre séjour à la Villa Linda , les propriétaires sont très agréables, ils parlent français et peuvent donc nous indiquer les visites à faire en Sicile. Giuseppe et Lydia nous ont gentiment fait visiter Catane de nuit super moment. Location propre, un petit point négatif le manque d'une machine à laver surtout pour des séjours de plus d'une semaine

Appreciation

  • 5 out of 5
L'appartement est tres spacieux (et nous n'etions que 3) et bien equipe. Les proprietaires logent a cote; ils sont serviables et charmants. Ils nous ont invites a venir prendre un verre chez eux. Ils parlent tres bien le Francais, ce qui a beaucoup facilite nos interactions.

La presence d'une pizzeria a quelques pas nous a bien depanne le premier soir (mais se munir d'un dictionnaire!)

Owner's Response: Salve J.M. B.; quello che avete scritto ci conferma che la vostra vacanza a VILLA LINDA vi ha lasciato un buon ricordo. Noi ci rammentiamo principalmente, dalle vostre prime mail, che sareste stati ospiti particolarmente esigenti; la vostra “appeciation” ci ha confermato la validità della nostra residenza e principalmente lo stile col quale noi ospitiamo. Grazie ancora e salutissimi anche a B.A. e A.M. Ciao! Lidia & Giuseppe
