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).

We visited in September 2016 and enjoyed very moment of it. We loved the laid back feel to this little fishing port which although small has got everything you need. We enjoyed our walk to the village each morning just as it was coming alive and then continued on around the port. Once you had that done each day, you could enjoy all the lovely delicious food without feeling too guilty as you burn off those calories on the way back up that hill to the apartment. There are lots of lovely towns to see around the area and we made great use of the car. We drove to the base of Mount Etna and that was an amazing sight on a lovely clear day, The Apartment is just the ideal base with amazing sea views. If you don't have the energy to do very much, then you could happily sit on that lovely patio all day. The furnishings are not what you would normally see in holiday home, this apartment has style and the lovely feel of being uncluttered, bright and airy. Our hosts were so nice and friendly and responded quickly when we needed them one day as we were using too many appliances at the same time and caused a power outage. We would recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone who has plans to stay in this region. We certainly will be back one day.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Really private but not isolated, great to have the pool. Approached through double security gates which make it feel very secure at night. Valentina the property manager is excellent, could not have been more helpful, particularly as we were very early and completely lost! The villa was equipt with food for not only that evening including eggs, milk, drinks etc but had store cupboard ingredients such as bottled water, pasta, cereal etc, easily enough to last several days. A nice touch was the wine cellar, for ten euros per bottle you can help yourself and pay at the end of the holiday, ideal! Be aware the Sicillians love fireworks and these can go on until the early hours so be aware if you are a light sleeper! The washing machine is great, the villa has ample furniture and is well presented. Would recommend visiting the Valley of the Temples, Noto, and Taomina all able to reach in a day. Driving in Sicilly is beyond terrible so don't do what we did and upgrade to a bigger car!! Cafe Valentina in Viagrande has excellent coffee and cake, you can takeaway and they wrap your biscuits or cake in wrapping paper and a bow! Would also recommend donkey treking on Mount Etna, well worth it and is suitable for all ages and abilities. Valentina was kind enough to arrive at 7am on our departure day to return our deposit as we had an early flight and was still as cheerful then as any other time of the day!!

I would like say a special thanks to Mario and Ketty the owners, we had major problems finding our way to the villa our mistake and ended up god knows where but Mario came looking for us and he took us to the villa. Our son is going to miss the lovely pool as he used it every day from early morning and we will miss the relaxing atmosphere and tranquil villa and the area. Overall a special holiday with special accommodation and wonderful helpful owners who where only a text away if needed.
