Bedrooms 1
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen + living room, living room (60 square meters total)

The apartment is located in a central area, just behind Via Etnea (the main street of the city) a few meters from Piazza Cavour.

In 2011 my wife and I renovated and transformed an old house (early '900) in a modern and functional loft. The style is contemporary but we tried to keep the room warm and cozy. An original floor of the beginning of the '900 and a little table are perfectly matched with a mezzanine made with bare beams.

The bedroom is located on the mezzanine overlooking the living area. With a small extra charge you can add a third bed.

The kitchen has hob, electric oven, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, toaster, complete with kitchen equipment.

The small bathroom with wc, bidet and wash basin also has a large shower and comfortable.

Wi-Fi access, air conditioning and heating.

The location is strategical, adjacent to the center of Catania, with public services such as metro and bus strolls a few steps away.

Nearby you can find bakeries, supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, pizzerias, banks, post office.

I will personally handing over the keys and the presentation of the apartment.

Pets considered long term, not just smoking, no pets, non-accessible for wheelchairs.

Nice clean, well equipped apartment in a central location.

  • 4 of 5

The property doesn't have windows in the main living areas, just an opaque glass panel and door onto the street and a glass door at the back. Consequently it is not really possible to see out, which is a bit odd. Only other issue was that the fridge (which was underneath the mezzanine) was very noisy.

Das Appartement ist perfekt!Alles gepflegt und sauber,sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 3 Personen dort,es wurde ein Zusatzbett im Wohnbereich aufgestellt.Marcello war immer zu erreichen wenn wir Fragen hatten.Er ist ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit.Besonders gefallen hat mir,dass der Eingang direkt von der Strasse aus zu erreichen ist,also im Parterre liegt.Trotz der Jahreszeit(Dez./Jan.) konnten wir die Terrasse geniessen.Wöchentlich kam ein "Putzmann" zur Reinigung und Wäschewechsel.Das Bett ist bequem mit appetitlicher Bettwäsche.Jederzeit wieder!!

Molto carino e molto comodo, nn manca nulla!!!

  • 4 of 5

Il loft è molto carino arredato con gusto ed ha tutti i confort utili. Il centro storico e' raggiungibile con una passeggiata lungo la via etnea da evitare se fa caldo oppure coprirsi con un cappello !!!! Abbiamo dormito bene posto silenzioso , vicino si trova un supermercato e un bar dove ci sono delle brioche buone e i coni senza glutine. La via etnea e' piena di negozi dove si trova ogni necessità. Da vedere il mercato del pesce a ridosso della piazza centrale e la piazza del duomo molto bella!!!!! Poco distante dalla casa ho trovato una pasticceria che fanno pizzette brioche cannoli pane e altri prodotti da forno senza glutine, delizie via Giuffrida 6.

Un loft confortable et un hôte acceuillant

  • 5 of 5

En arrivant Marcello nous a acceuillit cordialement malgré la barrière de la langue, (car nous parlons ni italien et peu l'anglais). Le loft est très propre et conforme aux photos. Tous les matins nous déjeunions sur la terrasse et c'était un vrai bonheur. Le soir nous avons pris l'apéro et quelques repas sur la terrasse également. Maintenant il faut savoir que si vous souhaitez visiter autour de Catane, louez une voiture, car il y a des bus, mais comme disent les siciliens il n'y a pas d'heure pour les bus. Je recommande ce loft, où vous pouvez dormir au calme, et où il y a tout ce qu'il faut dans le loft pour vivre aisément. En 10mn vous êtes sur la place duemo en passant par la via Etnea qui est plus plaisante. Encore un grand merci à Marcello pour son accueil et sa discrétion

Owner's Response: Merci et merci Francoise Michel. Ce fut un vrai plaisir de vous accueillir et je suis désolé pour les problèmes de transport et parce que je ne pouvais pas vous aider assez à cause de mon mauvais français. Mais je suis heureux que vous avez trouvé bien dans mon appartement et je vous remercie d'avoir laissé si propre et bien rangé. Si vous voulez revenir à Catane vous êtes les bienvenus. Je promets d'étudier un peu plus que le français :) Ciao

Un loft impeccable, décoré avec goût par un propriétaire disponible et chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Marcello pour ce lieu très bien pensé. Le loft est propre, bien situé et réfléchi. De nombreux petits détails ont été pensés et font toute la différence : flyers, guides, cuisine équipée avec toute la vaisselle nécessaire, produits ménagers, jeux, etc. La déco est moderne et le loft bénéficie d'une petite terrasse pour les petits déjeuners au soleil.
