Why Giuseppe & Lidia chose Catania

(Automatic translation) VILLA LINDA is located in the foothills north of the city of Catania, on the 330 m. m., near the small town of San Gregorio, said "Balcony of Catania."

In 800, our grandparents, like other families Catania each year, in the second half of June were moving - on holiday - San Gregorio, to escape the summer heat of the city and enjoy the cool night air and the health move from winds, which slid down from the volcano Etna.

In San Gregorio, grandparents had an estate vineyard, part of a large and ancient feud Bourbon, where there was a house-villa typical Etna, which was the delight of us all children and cousins ​​who came to visit us, and that in 'arc of years, they had spent in San Gregorio, a few weeks of their hot summer Catania.

After the unification of Italy, the grandparents - since the family was larger and larger - wanted to build a real house, you can live the whole year.

Around the 2000s the large residence was renovated and adapted to modern living requirements.

VILLA LINDA remained for nearly a century partially inhabited by the custodians and deep restructuring, but leaving out the elements and styles of nineteenth-century construction: monolithic jambs lava stone square, shaped, carved and hammered a chisel, porch with arch of the Romanesque style carved in white stone of Noto, just as you can see in the old family photos.

Sicilian Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation in Sicily in August (from 7th to 14th) and one of the most enjoyable things, was our stay in VILLA LINDA, in San Gregorio Di Catania. The house was perfect, better than the description on homelidays, illuminated, with a positive aura. Our hosts, Giuseppe and Lidia were there to salute us, help us, and guide us in our journey to discover Sicily. Their hospitality was unique, and as a Greek, I should say that it reminded us of the Greek "philoxenia". We found a home at VILLA LINDA.

We hope to be able to visit again in the near future.

We had the greatest time ...

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest time ever, the owners are extremely nice people, were very friendly and helpful. The place is very well located, in a calm street, although only a 15 minutes from the busy Catania. The access is easy by car. The place is well equipped, cosy and adorable in every sense. Pictures are very faithful to the reality. Thank you very much Lidia & Guiseppe, you were great, hope to see you soon!

Allez y les yeux fermés !

  • 5 of 5

Accueil chaleureux de la part de Lydia et Giuseppe malgré l'heure très tardive de notre arrivée.

Propriétaires charmants, avenants, disponibles, sympathiques.

Cerise sur le gâteau, ils parlent bien français.

Giuseppe est un adorateur de la Sicile (histoire, gastronomie, féru de musique, de spectacles....).

La location est conforme à l'annonce. Nous la recommandons les yeux fermés.

Merci à Lydia pour son petit concert privé de piano et pour leur apéritif.

Merci à Giuseppe pour la petite surprise dans le frigo (les pâtisseries étaient excellentes).

Nous garderons un souvenir immuable d'une région magnifique. La location est bien située géographiquement.

Encore merci à Lydia et Giuseppe pour toutes vos attentions.

Une location parfaite !

  • 5 of 5

Les propriétaires, sont très accueillants, généreux et discrets, disponibles, parlent français, et sont de bon conseil pour les visites . Nous avons eu la chance d'être invités à une chorale de musique sacrée organisé par Lidia ainsi qu'au délicieux buffet qui a suivi, le soir de notre arrivée ..

La literie est parfaite, les deux chambres sont grandes, la cuisine est petite mais très fonctionnelle, et la terrasse est un plus appréciable, parking facile, et localisation parfaite pour rejoindre les grands axes en 2 mn .

Ne manquez pas le marché aux poissons de Catane, l'Etna, les iles éoliennes à 90mn de voiture ,.......

Encore MERCI pour tout, Lidia et Giuseppe, transmettez notre bonjour à Jean-Yves !

Owner's Response: Sono arrivati a VILLA LINDA tre persone, "numero perfetto"; come dire anche "ospiti perfetti"! Sensibili alla cultura della Sicilia, attenti al suo paesaggio, gradevoli e silenziosi ospiti. Credo (speriamo !) che ritornino; la Sicilia è grande ed ha molte proposte culturali da offrire: tanti secoli di storia, molta arte, buon clima, il grande senso di ospitalità mediterraneo ... e magari .... organizzeremo, per loro, un altro concerto ?!? Ciao Didier, Catherine e Théo Lidia & Giuseppe

Owner's Response: Grazie delle vostre belle parole per il soggiorno a VILLA LINDA. Voi siete stati ospiti esigenti, di cultura e di gradevole compagnia. Visitate con calma e attenzione la Sicilia dell'arte, della storia ed apprezzate anche la sua tradizione gastronomica e il suo mare azzurro. Speriamo di avervi ancora a VILLA LINDA; ci sono ancora tante cose da vedere in Sicilia e le Isole Eolie. Saluti cordiali insieme a Lidia e al “ferocissimo” rottweiler Mozart.
