Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Giorgio - terre del cardinale

apartments and studios very close to city center, beach and attractions

Recently renovated the old housefarm has been transformed in 5 nice apartents and one studio (MORO) that are situated in a beautiful natural environment: an estate of 50 hectares of orange, lemon and olive trees. Ideal for all who wish to brief the true “Sicilian perfume”. From the terrace, on one side you see the Mount Etna and on the other side the view of the coast is a truly unique show. There are two kinds of apartments: large and small. The biggest are 2 pieces suitable for a family of max 5 persons: two separate bedrooms and a living room with a sofa/double-bed , dining table, kitchen. Bathroom with toilet, bidet and shower. The smallest appartment is a studio are for 2 persons. All studio are fully furnished and just renoved. Nice kitchen. The commune garden is equipped with garden furniture including parasol and beach chairs, barbecue. Terre del Cardinale is an excellent base from which to explore Sicily and the volcano Etna. The village San Giorgio lies in Catania just two kilometres from the highway . Just 10 minutes from Catania and beaches, 15 kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach, is just 40 km from Terre del Cardinale ( 25 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and one of the most exclusive seaside resorts in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Travelling south, 20 minute drive away lies Syracuse and Noto. Terre del Cardinale is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings.

Contact me for any information and I will suggest you the best studio according with your need.

About matilde

Ciao a tutti! I'm Matilde ( in the photo with my mom) and I manage terre del Cardinale since this year.I'm Alessandro, Federico and Giovanna mother.

I grown up seeing my father FRANCO spending all his life working hard in Terre del Cardinale, that's why, I decided to trasforme this land in a little nice country rental house. Just to show his great work. My mom name is ROSA and she prepares extra jams! I completed my primary education in catania and higher secondary education in Rome in Saint Dominique Institut The knowledge and experience I have gained from my formal studies, works , relationships reaffirmed my interest in this field of work and helped me to develop an ability to communicate with enthusiasm. I know how important it is to be flexible and make use of my own resources. I love to travel, read, to dance latin american,listening music and talk with people. I am a very curious person and always ready to learn new things from anywhere and everywhere. I like to work with people and learn things and also teach things.That's all about my self and if you want to know anything particular ask me I would like to answer you!!

Why matilde chose

Our love for the region means we would really like to share our country suites with our guests. The typical farmhouses, which were once storage of citrus fruits, have been renovated and have become small flats equipped with every comfort and immersed in the perfect silence of untouched nature. These little corners of paradise are perfect for all those who want to admire the colours and smell the scent of the Sicilian countryside. Inside the property, there is a museum where you can admire some examples of the rural life, read a book, or sip a refreshing glass of wine. The small fitness area will help you digest the delicious Sicilian sweets!

What makes this apartment unique

Terre del Cardinale is an excellent base from which to explore Sicily and the volcano Etna. The village San Giorgio lies in Catania just two kilometres from the highway . Just 10 minutes from Catania and beaches, 15 kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach, is just 40 km from Terre del Cardinale ( 25 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and one of the most exclusive seaside resorts in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Travelling south, 20 minute drive away lies Syracuse and Noto. Terre del Cardinale is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings.

Entspannung - Garten unter Palmen u. Orangenbäumen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im September 2014 für gute zwei Wochen Gäste von Matilde. Wir haben es sehr genossen! Das Appartement ist frisch renoviert, modern eingerichtet und hat noch den Charme des landwirtschaftlichen Altbaus. Tritt man vor das Appartement ins Freie hat man einen guten Blick auf den Ätna. Der Garten neben dem ehemals landwirtschaftlichen Gebäudes ist eine echte Oase. Man frühstückt unter Palmen und Pinien direkt neben der Orangenplantage. Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen. Obwohl auf dem "Land gelegen" ist die Lage sehr verkehrsgünstig zwischen Flughafen und Umgehungsstraße mit guten Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und eignet sich sehr gut als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge mit dem Auto nach Catania, Taormina, Syracusa. - Die gesamte Ostküste lässt sich gut erkunden.

Matilde war uns eine wunderbare Gastgeberin! Sie war regelmäßig vor Ort, spricht fließend Englisch und war sehr hilfreich. Sie hat uns tolle Tipps für Ausflüge gegeben und war immer um unser Wohl besorgt. Sie war sehr süß zu unserer kleinen Tochter!

Hoffentlich können wir bald mal wieder kommen.

Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit, Matilde! Katja und Peter aus Berlin
