Make a holiday rental cottage or self catering villa in Catania, Sicily your home away from home

Sitting on the eastern coast of Sicily is Catania, a city which has had to fight both invaders and nature for its existence. A number of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and invasion parties have left a remarkable mix of historical monuments whilst destroying others, giving Catania a wonderfully progressive appearance. Located between the waters of the Ionian Coast and the fiery peak of Mount Etna, Catania is surrounded by some hugely diverse landscapes, providing a perfect holiday retreat for anyone who loves nature and the great outdoors.

Things to do on holiday in Catania, Sicily

There are some beautiful historical sites to explore from a self catering Catania holiday cottage, villa or apartment. The two Roman amphitheatres are both certainly worth exploration from any Catania accommodation, especially the larger of the two, which sits above a huge maze of passages and alcoves. The most visually impressive monument you can visit from a self catering Catania villa is the huge, dominant Ursino Castle, which used to stand on the coastline until a volcanic eruption actually extended the coastline further into the sea! The Baroque 9th Century Cathedral is also well worth further investigation from any Catania accommodation.

There are some fantastically long, sandy beaches just a short walk from the very centre of the town, perfect for anyone wishing to relax in the sun with the sand between their toes. There is always plenty of space on the white sand beaches of Catania, despite the amazing climate, stunning scenery and modern water sports centres which can be found along this stretch of coast.

Walking from a Catania apartment, villa or cottage is absolutely magnificent. The Simeto Estuary which lies to the south of Catania has been declared an area of outstanding natural beauty, offering fantastic views over the volcanic landscape of Mount Etna to the west. The National Park which surrounds the volcano, the Parco dell’Etna has some breathtaking scenery to see, and you can climb the volcano, although taking expert advice on conditions before setting out from your Catania holiday cottage is strongly advised.

Throughout Catania are a host of fantastic restaurants, cafes and eateries. The fresh seafood which comes from the nearby waters of the Ionian Sea are cooked to perfection in many restaurants, and the local anchovies, aubergines and marzipan are known throughout cooking circles as some of the finest money can buy.

Places to visit on holiday in Catania, Sicily

There is a wonderfully scenic boat trip you can take from Catania to the Island of Malta. A trip to the Island of Malta makes a simply wonderful day trip from a self catering Catania holiday cottage, villa or apartment, as there is so much to see and do with a day in Malta.

Weather in Catania, Sicily

Catania is among Italy’s hottest places. During the summer months, temperatures of 40°C are not uncommon, and although this makes beach holiday in the area remarkably enjoyable, if you would like to explore from a Catania villa, late spring or early autumn are top times to visit, still being hot, but not unbearably so. Even in the grips of winter, you are very unlikely to experience temperatures under 15°C from Catania accommodation.

Cheap flights to Catania, Sicily

The Aeroporto Fontanarossa or Catania Airport (CTA) is located 7km outside of the city centre. Flights to Catania Airport are provided by easyJet, ThomsonFly and British Airways from a selection of British airports including Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester (MAN).

Fantastic position for exploring the area.

4 of 5
We were met by Laura who was lovely and saw that we had everything we needed. The flat is by a small park and a stones throw away from the daily market. We bought fresh fruit and vegetables every day (very cheap) and fresh fish and meat. There is a lovely bakery just around the corner. You can walk to the main piazza in a minute. The flat has plenty of room with plenty of storage for clothing and a well equipped kitchen. The two balconies are small but overlook the park and are perfect for watching the daily coming and going. Being so central you do have some noise and if you shut the windows it will cut out a lot but not all of it. We come from a very quiet area but it didn’t put us off. Being so close to the market you might worry about the street on arrival as there is graffiti and broken glass. Don’t let this put you off. The area felt very safe. The buses stop close by and we caught a bus from here to visit Siracusa. There is another bus depot by the station (15/20 mins walk) which goes to other places. Taormina is well worth a visit. We had a wonderful week and would definitely recommend Luca’s flat if you want a convenient central location. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic apartment and breathtaking location

5 of 5
The apartment is really as nice as shown on the pictures. The view on the sea and the islands is breathtaking. The location is really perfect. We were glad to have a parking slot on the premises. There are many nice restaurants nearby and each morning we went some metres to Cafe Mythos for the Sicilian breakfast: Granite (ice) with warm brioche. :-)
