Excellent apartment, thoroughly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The apartment takes up the top floor of this lovely seafront villa (nearly 200 years old) on a quiet lane about 10 minutes walk from a harbour in the Northern part of Katania. There is a large supermarket within 500m and several restaurants in the harbour area. The apartment is reached by 4 flights of stairs but the rooms are spacious if limited in headroom into the eaves. The best of all is a huge private roof terrace with Mount Aetna behind and the sea in front. There are several reclining chairs and an outdoor table and chairs - definitely superior to a cramped hotel room. Gaetano and his family were welcoming and helpful. The kitchen is well-equipped and there is a sofa bed in the living room as well as two double bedrooms. The aircon was modern and quiet, but the louvre windows open to give cool breezes during the day.

We walked into central Katania a few times (about an hour along the seafront) and took the train down to Syracusa (very worthwhile) as well as driving up to Aetna, making this a very good touring centre. But if all you want is peace and quiet with the open sea in front and great facillities on tap, this would still be a great spot. Hope I haven't hyped this too much, we want to go back - but we hope you enjoy it too.

A visit to Sicily (Catania City | Property ID 6397880)

  • 5 of 5

The engaging photographs of the interior and exterior of the house accurately portray the ambiance of the property. The furnishings are traditional, comfortable and totally in-keeping with the age and character of this old family home. The original house dates from the late 19th century and was later extended at the start of the 20th century. The family Coco were most warm and helpful in welcoming us to the property, crowned by a a home-made strawberry cake and a bottle of wine to celebrate my 70th birthday. Our stay there was a delight.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The flat was lovely and very comfortable. The top floor of a private house with two generations for the owner's family living on the two floors below. The views of the sea just below are wonderful and it would of course be a great location for a holiday in this part of Sicily in the summer. We were here in December so had a lot of rain and could not get the views of Mount Etna which we were told we could have on a clear day. In this wild weather, we had wild sea views from the terrace and it was simply wonderful.

The decoration of the flat is traditional and my father and I liked that. Everything was spotlessly clean and there were supplies of basics like salt, sugar, oil - very helpful.

It was great to have parking on the premises. I would come back here any time.

The house is situated on the seashore overlooking the Gulf of Ognina ancient harbor of fishing. Then it is few minutes from the center of Catania and 2 km from the highway that can take you 20 minutes to Taormina or Siracusa.
