APARTMENT CONTE RUGGERO WITH COURTYARD: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 8

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.

Vacanza indimenticabile!!

  • 5 out of 5
Noi, un gruppo composto da 2 ragazzi e 5 ragazze, abbiamo alloggiato per 5 giorni nella casa di Conte Ruggero whit Garden, casa che è risultata comoda, attrezzata e pulita. I proprietari sono stati molto gentili, disponibili, umili ed accoglienti, pronti a venire incontro ad ogni nostra richiesta. Non dimenticheremo lo spumante e la confezione di patatine che ci avete riservato al nostro arrivo, ne il sapore dell'anguria che ci avete offerto. Per non parlare di tante altre cose che ci avete messo a disposizione, GRAZIE DI TUTTO!! Ci scusiamo del disordine che abbiamo lasciato in cucina, ma il nostro tempo si è ridotto bruscamente e quando ce ne siamo resi conto era impossibile sistemare le ultime cose.
La casa è particolarmente comoda per famiglie con bambini, ma noi, gruppo di amici universitari, ci siamo trovati bene, anzi proprio la conformazione della casa ha permesso di consolidare un bellissimo rapporto di amicizia.
Noi consigliamo questa casa a coloro che vogliono soggiornare in tutta tranquillità nel paesino di Mascali, che è collocato bene per gli spostamenti in macchina.
In futuro, terremo in considerazione questa casa e la consiglieremo alle persone che vogliono fare un viaggio in Sicilia.
Grazie, alla prossima! :-)
Un abbraccio i ragazzi dell'Unical

Fredeligt og roligt

  • 3 out of 5
Stedet passer godt til familien, der har brug for at trække sig lidt tilbage fra den hektiske turiststemning i de store byer. Lejligheden er stor og rummelig, og der er god plads til otte mennesker.

Gårdhaven er hyggelig, og giver god plads til parkerede biler også. Vi parkerede dog bilen på gaden i hele periode på 14 dage, og oplevede ingen utryghed ved det.

Lejligheden ligger ikke i centrum af butikker og spisesteder, hvilket giver fred og ro, men også lidt mere tid til transport end forventet. Der er gode indkøbsmuligheder, så man kan sagtens købe ind til mad og diverse fornødenheder tæt på. Med små 20 minutters kørsel fra Naxos' sandstrand og en lidt længere køretur til Taorminas vidunderlige gamle by, er det forholdsvis nemt at komme til det mere pulserende liv på øen.

Der er ikke langt til stranden, og når man først vænner sig til stenstrandenes rullende småsten, er de klart at foretrække fremfor Naxos mere sandede strand, hvor der er mange turister. Af uransaglige årsager, er der ikke nær så mange mennesker på stenstrandende, hvilket vi fuldt ud nød - lækkert badevand, få mennesker og masser af lækkert hav at bade i.

Maria og hendes familie - som vi generelt oplever at italienerne - er yderst venlige og hjælpsomme og selv om familien og de øvrige beboer skal igennem gårdhaven for at komme ud, har man en god følelse af privatliv.
Både Maria og hendes datter er nemme at kommunikere med på engelsk, og vi kan varmt anbefale dem som værter.

Immaculately kept property

  • 4 out of 5
Our group consisted of 6 adult family members visiting nearby towns to locate family members. Our stay at Conte Ruggero was very comfortable and met all our needs. We were especially impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment and it's furnishings. We did no cooking other than making coffee...an American style coffee pot would have been nice but we managed. Groceries and snacks were purchased in a nearby supermarket. We spent most of our day out and ate our dinners out also. When home we spent all of our time outdoors enjoying the lovely courtyard which was very private. We would certainly recommend Maria and Agostino's property to anyone visiting the Eastern part of Sicily.

Gute Wohnung mit tollen Vermietern!

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren über drei Wochen maximal zu viert in der Wohnung (nur Erwachsene). Mit den vier Schlafzimmern, zwei Bädern und der großzügigen Wohnküche war der Platz mehr als ausreichend.
Es gibt acht Betten, wobei ich darauf hinweisen möchte, dass jeweils ein Doppelbettzimmer und ein Zweibettzimmer türlos(!) miteinander verbunden sind und letzteres auch nur durch ersteres zu erreichen ist. Die Klimaanlage befindet sich jeweils in den Zweibettzimmern, die Doppelbettzimmer werden durch den offenen Durchgang mitgekühlt. Dies sollte man bedenken, wenn man z.B. erwägt sich mit vier Pärchen einzumieten. Ideal ist die Wohnung für zwei Paare mit je zwei Kindern.
Die Wohnung ist geräumig, sauber (mit dem allgegenwärtigen Etnastaub muss man leben) und sehr gut ausgestattet.
Großer Kühlschrank, Mikrowelle, Besteck, Geschirr, Kochutensilien, Waschmaschine in der Küche, ebenso ein ausreichend großer Esstisch und ein Sofa, sowie ein Fernseher mit Satellitenanschluss (von uns "eingeweiht").
Den Garten haben wir nicht wirklich genutzt, da wir viel unterwegs waren und durch die hohen Bäume doch recht wenig Licht in den Hof fällt, zumindest im Oktober.
Mascali liegt sehr günstig, um die Ostküste Siziliens zu erkunden. Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, aber auch Enna, die Villa Romana und das Valle dei Templi sind in Tagestouren zu erreichen. Der (Kies-)Strand ist in fünf Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen und das Wasser war zumindest im Oktober sehr klar und sauber (keine Algen, Quallen).
Der große Bonuspunkt dieser Wohnung sind jedoch die Vermieter, die gesamte Familie Mondello ist unglaublich nett, engagiert und hilfsbereit!!!
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen, und wenn es uns nochmal nach Sizilien verschlägt, werden wir gerne wieder bei den Mondellos einkehren!

Vacanza dal 6 al 13 agosto

  • 5 out of 5
Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo allogiato per una settimana nella casa Conte Ruggero e devo fare i complimenti ai propietari, sopratutto alla Signora Maria e al figlio Marco per l´abitazione che era molto ordinata, comoda e ben arredata, anche per 2 famiglie.
Sono stati molto gentili e disponibili in qualsiasi cosa.

Il giardino era molto bello e rilassante con la comodità pure di mettere la macchina davanti alla porta di casa.

Il paese è tranquillo e facilmente ci si può spostare nei paesi vicini.

E stata veramente una bella vacanza.

Grazie di tutto. Sicuramente torneremo!

Angelo e famiglia
