Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mascali - HOMES to stay to see CATANIA

CONTE RUGGERO with TERRACES & CONTE RUGGERO with COURTYARD,near beach, Etna,

HOMES TO STAY TO SEE CATANIA are two self-catering apartments, namely: CONTE RUGGERO with TERRACES & CONTE RUGGERO with COURTYARD. Both are located within the same building. This historic Art Nouveau building was constructed way back in 1930 but is now completely renovated. It is a sturdy structure with thick walls. Both apartments are just as spacious and comfortable as the other, both complete with modern facilities. There is also a large private carpark. We live up on the top floor ready to offer any assistance, above all to assure you a pleasant Sicilian holiday. All these and many more at a good price and a 30% discount from the second week on.

The location is ideal for many reasons. These apartments are only about a kilometer to the nearest beach 'FONDACHELLO'. Bakeries (panifici), pastry shops (pasticcerie), ice cream parlors (gelaterie), snack bars (tavola calda), supermarkets (supermercati), banks (le banche), the post office (ufficio postale), the church (la chiesa), pharmacies (le farmacie), the playground (il parco da gioco) and the town square (la piazza) are all within walking distance.. Mascali is surrounded by many known tourist spots like Mt. Etna, Taormina, the castle of Calatabiano, il Castello degli Schiavi, the gorge of Alcantara, the baroque cities of Acireale, Catania and Siracusa, just to mention a few. This is the perfect base for families, couples or groups visiting Catania, the eastern side of the Sicily, known also as the greener side of the island. Thanks to Mt Etna, fruit trees and orchards are abundant in this fertile land. Lemon and orange plantations and vineyards cover the hillslide down the volcanic slopes.

Don't miss more nearby attractions like: GIARRE, a nearby town ideal for a shopping spree down Corso Italia and along via Callipoli; CONFORAMA, a commercial center on SS114; other malls of Catania are PORTE di CATANIA, ETNAPOLIS, and CENTRO SICILIA. A great way of visitng the surrounding towns around ETNA would be to take a ride on the FERROVIA CIRCUMETNEA (the 'Railway around the Etna'); RIPOSTO, known for its fresh fish market; go and see the PORTO dell'ETNA where one can go on a boat ride or simply watch the harbor from the panoramic restaurant while enjoying one's delicious Sicilian meal, this is also a great place to try the famous Sicilian sherbet 'granita' for breakfast; visit GURNA, an extraordinary Natural Reserve within the territory of MASCALI and FIUMEFREDDO; the vineyards of SANTA VENERINA, SANT'ALFIO, MILO, LINGUAGLOSSA, excellent wine producing towns; within less than 30 minutes of pleasant driving is IL PICCIOLO, a 18 hole golf course; farther up on ETNA's northern side; a must is PIANA PROVENZANA, from where one can join a S.T.A.R. excursion on a jeep up till the crater. Here you will also find a skiing resort. As for night life, TAORMINA, CASTELMOLA, GIARDINI-NAXOS, ACIREALE and CATANIA are all excellent for fine dining,pubs, bars, night clubs and discotheques. You name it, we've got it.

"とても素晴らしい滞在先でした"



シチリア旅行時の滞在先として10日間、4歳児と1歳児の家族4人で滞在しましたが、清潔感のある部屋と広いテラスで子供達も喜んで遊んでいました。 レンタカーによる移動がベースでしたが、高速の出口が近かったのでタオルミーナやカターニャ、シラクーサ、エトナ山等シチリア東部の主要な観光地へのアクセスも良く、海岸線までも2キロほどの距離でした。 また大家さんも大変親切かつフレンドリーな方で、近辺の美味しいお店等を教えていただき、またレンタカーでのトラブルがあった時も色々と助けていただき大変助かりました。

What a beautiful apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
Maria and her family have a beautiful apartment in Mascali and we feel very fortunate to have lived 'the Sicilian life' for a week in their immaculate accommodation (on the first floor with 2 terraces). We spent a lot of time in this spacious flat, especially at midday as it was very cool (offering real protection from the sun)! Living here was truly very easy ! It is located a couple of km from Fondachello beach, 20 km from Taormina, 45 mins from Mount Etna's southern refuge and from Etnaland, a massive water park in Belpasso. Maria recommended a delicious and very tasteful fish restaurant to us in Giarre (not too pricey) but we also found the local supermarkets very cheap indeed. All in all, we rate this holiday 10 out of 10......a real gem which gave us an insight into Sicilian life!! (PS: Listen out for the GRANITE man bringing you breakfast in the morning - our kids tried them all and loved them!)

Great place to stay for family

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this place with 2 children, 4 years old and 1 years old, and it was great place for family.
The place was nice and clean, our children enjoyed playing in the large balcony.
We were using hired car during our stay, and the location was fairly close to the junction of motorway, which had a good access to major place to visit in east Sicily, such as Taormina, Catania, Sirakusa, Mount. Etna, etc.
Also the house owner was very nice and kind, which they were always friendly and give us good information about place to visit or eat, and also when we had a trouble, such as trouble in hired car, they were always supportive to us, and it was really helpful for visitor like us, which did not have good local knowledge in case of trouble.
This venue was surely one of the biggest element made our holiday worthwhile.

Just the place for a family holiday!

  • 4 out of 5
We found the location without any trouble through GPS system. The location,layout and facilities were as advertised.The flat was clean and well kept. The owners are very nice people, felt like we had friends to turn to. In fact they helped us get our punctured tyre mended , as we did not know where to go. They even suggested places of interest we could visit, when we asked. We would certainly recommend this property to anyone who would like to holiday as a family or small group. We visited Mount Etna, Etnaland and drove on the autostrada around Sicily as far as Trapani. We enjoyed good food in various restaurants, amongst which `Happy WOK`-for chinese food in Catania, and` NETTUNO`for good Sicilian food in Pozzallo. We came back home feeling good after a relaxing holiday.

notre bouffée d'oxygene annuelle
  • 5 out of 5
Pour la deuxiéme année nous avons séjourné à la Casa Conte Ruggero et cette année nous avons loué l'appartement avec terrasse, l'année dernière nous avions pris l'appartement avec jardin car nous étions plus nombreux.
L'appartement est très beau et bénéficie de tout le confort nécessaire. Nous avons énormément apprécié sa grande terrasse où nous avons passé de bons moments de détente.
Maria et sa famille sont toujours aussi gentils , prévenants et pleins de délicatesse et nous les remercions encore une fois pour tout.
Nous espèrons revenir l'année prochaine.

Znakomite lokum wakacyjne dla ca?ej rodzinki....

  • 5 out of 5
Mieszkali?my 8 dni w wynajetym mieszkaniu wakacyjnym Pa?stwa Mondello. S? to przesympatyczni i uprzejmi ludzie oferujacy w tym przestronnym mieszkaniu wszystko co sobie tylko mo?na wyobrazi?. Po?o?enie tej stylowej kamienicy w centrum powoduje, ?e mo?na si? dobrze wczu? w atmosfer? i ?ycie tego ma?ego sennego sycylijskiego miasteczka. Kuchnia zaopatrzona znakomicie, na zewn?trz wielki taras w cieniu palm na którym spo?ywali?my ?niadania i drinkowali?my w ?wietle gwiazd. Dwie przestronne sypialnie z wygodnymi ?ó?kami zapewniaj? g??boki sen, a du?a powierzchnia ca?ego mieszkania sprawia, ?e 4-5 osób mo?e w nim wygodnie mieszka? i sobie wzajemnie nie przeszkadza?. W mieszkaniu jest internet (WiFi), co w moim przypadku by?o bardzo wa?ne i wygodne (niestety musia?em wieczorami troch? pracowa? i mie? ??czno?? ze swoj? firm?). Kamienica stoi przy bocznej cichej uliczce. Na posesji z pancern? bram? mog? parkowa? conajmniej 2 go?cinne samochody osobowe, jedynie wjazd przez w?sk? bram? by? pewnego rodzaju wyzwaniem, ale w ko?cu jaka? adrenalina nam si? równie? nale?a?a. Do pla?y wygodny dojazd samochodem - ok.3 km. Do autostrady 4 km i szybki dojazd do Catanii lub Taorminy, nie wspominaj?c ju? o widoku na dymi?c? Etn?. Polecamy wszystkim mi?o?nikom Sycylii.
