Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Elegant apartment recently renovated the property.

The property is an old family mansion of the early 900 right in front of one of the most representative monuments of the city of Catania : the Castello Ursino.

The house is well exposed, sunny and bright. The design (by the architect/owner) was prepared in every detail to give maximum comfort to guests. There is a heating system and air-conditioned in the main and common rooms and fan system in all other spaces. A accurate system to guarantee comfort and well stay. Thermal comfort has been taken into serious consideration in arranging the rooms and all openings have been equipped with solar shading system.

The wide open spaces and the exposure of the house provide a perfect stay in the middle of the city.

The spacious apartment is provided with all the accessories and equipment to allow guests to feel at home. It's composed by 3 bedrooms very large and comfortable: two of them, about 25sqm each, have a balcony with views of the medieval castle (each balcony has a breakfast table with 2 chairs very nice to have coffee, tea or aperitiv looking at the medieval castle) and another one, about 16 square meters ( with balcony) is equipped with air conditioning.

A large kitchen and dining room ( more than 25 sq m ) has all the main amenities (fridge with freezer, kettle, microwaves, electric oven, toaster, boiler, pots) and it's directly connected with the hall-living room with sofas and armchairs with a SKY TV (cinema, sport and football) and SAT TV and with a winter garden with a wonderful and amazing skylight. This is the heart of the whole apartment: the “winter garden” it's equipped with ornamental plants and a mezzanine with relaxing sofa, home theatre, projector with maxi screen, surround. We have equipped home with the main technology systems like with wifi free, smart led tv.

The house has 2 bathrooms ( one with bathtub) , laundry room , winter garden with a mezzanine relaxation.

The furniture is made from original pieces and is a mix of ancient and original (1800 and 1900) and from pieces of contemporary design. Particular attention has been given to the arrangement of the rooms. A particularity: were chosen beds in untreated natural wood and without metallic components to minimize the electromagnetic fields during the night.

The entire building is recent restored and is like a private and quite corner in the middle of the city, overlooking a wonderful castle and inserted in the heart of one of the gastronomical center of the city. the square on which the building faces is full of good restaurants where you can taste excellent traditional Sicilian dishes and good wines.

The historic market called 'La Pescheria' is just behind the corner. Few steps for the Duomo, Via Etnea, Roman amphitheater, opera house, amenano river. Five minutes walking from a bus station with connections to the main city around: Siracusa, Taormina, Ragusa, Noto, Agrigento, Palermo.

The rental is supplied without centralized services pursuant to Law 431/98

Owner's Response: Hello Anonymous P. Thanks for living the house dirty and full of garbage.. Next time try to trough away it before to leave the house and to check if the air condition could be a problem or not :) I want to inform you that the plants in the winter garden needs water to live; I really try to care about them but most of the time guests live there and, as you, they dont put water on the plants (is part of the house caring). Thats why you have found some plant almost dead :) I will replace plants as I do always. You are the first person who complains about that very nice space in the house :) (maybe you should have talking about the amazing cinema room under the sky in that space) :) Sorry, where have you seen the lack of airconditioning? you didnt realise that in the house there are airconditioning in different places and many fans ? YOu ddint ask to have airconditioning, so what you say is not true. Next time just ask or read better the advertt. Dear Patricia Anonymous, you started in a bad wy your stay in my place (not informing about your arrival time and, not inform me about your late arrival) you continued worst complaing about the costs of the flat (described in the advert) and leaving the flat in a big mess, and , at the end, writing something not true in this review. I hope you realise that is not the way to behave specially on holiday :) I wish you all the best.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Massimiliano was an excellent host and a pleasure to communicate with when doing the booking and very responsive while we were his guests. The flat was well furnished, clean and is the perfect location for our visit to Catania. You can walk to all the great spots in the city and the bakery right across the street was a special treat in the morning. If you are looking for a comfortable, well appointment place to call home in Catania, this is it. Thanks Massimiliano for making out stay so enjoyable. Hope to be back someday.

A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the lovely apartment of Massimiliano. He was not in the city himself, but he sent a friend to greet us, who was very helpful. He even helped us get a taxi on saturday night. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. It is a really nice neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and some little shops at walking distance. On the other side of the castle is a bad neighbourhood with lots of garbage on the streets. It is not recommended to walk there at night. On the side where the apartment is there are some famous restaurants with incredible pastas and mussels. We did the Etna and Wine tour via Massimiliano and had the best day.
