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).

Beautiful villa, perfect for a family holiday

5 of 5
This villa was perfect for our family holiday, lit was well equipped, had lots of space and was very clean. The location was ideal for day trips to Mount Etna, Taormina, Syracuse and Savoca (a must if you stay here). There is parking at the villa. We hired 3 cars however the parking was extremely tight on the entrance driveway - there is room outside the property but the security would be compromised; the rental of small cars is our advice. Patrizio and his family who look after the villa were very helpful and I recommend the food cooked by Patrizio's wife (we did on two of our seven evenings here) it was delicious. As it was my husband's special birthday we asked for a cake to be baked by Patrizio's wife, it was beautifully presented and delicious, enjoyed by the whole family. All in all this was a great holiday and I highly recommend this beautiful and very spacious villa.

Wunderschönes Domizil am Hang des Monti Rossi

5 of 5
Die Ferienwohnung hält auf jeden Fall was sie verspricht! Wir waren anfangs etwas skeptisch, weil die Fotos der Wohnung fast schon zu schön waren. Aber als wir dort ankamen, wurden wir nicht enttäuscht - im Gegenteil! Die Wohnung war der Hammer! Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet, der Wohnbereich ist sehr geräumig und die Bäder wunderschön. Alles ist in einem besonderen Stil dekoriert/möbliert, da Toti, der Sohn der Gastfamilie Schreiner ist und alle Möbel selbst gemacht hat! Apropos Gastfamilie: Die Familie war unglaublich aufmerksam und zuvorkommend! Bei der Ankunft war der Kühlschrank und die Küche schon mit einigen typisch sizilianischen Gastgeschenken ausgestattet (eine kleine Geste mit großer Wirkung!). Dies war allerdings längst nicht alles: draußen war ein vielseitiges Gewürzbeet, sowie eine Obstplantage angelegt, an denen man sich bedienen durfte. Toti empfahl uns zwei wirklich gute Restaurants in der Umgebung und reservierte uns in einem sogar einen Platz. Giulia, die Tochter der Familie, organisierte für uns einen Ätnatrip und nahm einen Freund, der Guide ist, mit. Die beiden haben das wirklich klasse gemacht und uns einen sehr guten Eindruck über den Vulkan verschafft! Nochmal vielen Dank für den unglaublichen Service! Da eine Kritik erst dann gut und hilfreich ist, wenn sie auch Verbesserungsvorschläge enthält, möchte ich diese hier hinzufügen mit der Bemerkung, dass es wirklich „Meckern auf hohem Niveau“ ist: Die Schränke in den oberen drei Zimmern sind recht klein und die Dachschrägen sind nicht optimal. Die zwei Zimmer im Untergeschoss sind nicht direkt mit dem Haus verbunden, sie sind nicht so hell wie die anderen drei Zimmer und der WLAN-Empfang reicht nicht bis dort. Der Fernseher im Wohnzimmer empfängt keine internationalen Sender (dafür hat er Netflix!). Das ist auch schon alles was man an der Wohnung „aussetzen“ könnte. Wir empfehlen jedem potentiellen Mieter, der im Sommer Sizilien besuchen möchte diese Ferienwohnung, weil sie durch Lage von fast 1000 Metern über dem Meer circa 5 °C kühler als der Rest der Insel ist. Es war eine wirklich tolle, unkomplizierte und wunderschöne Zeit bei euch und wir kommen gerne wieder! Nochmal vielen Dank für alles!
