Why The Owner 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!

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.

Convivial et confortable

  • 5 of 5

Accueil chaleureux malgré une arrivée très tardive (retard avion).

Gîte très propre, confortable et très calme.

Emplacement pratique: proximité de commerces, route pour l'ETNA, position centrale pour visiter l'est de la Sicile.

Giuseppe et Lydia sont accueillants, discrets, disponibles et toujours de bon conseils concernant les visites à effectuer. Passionnés sur l'histoire et l'art en général, ils pourront répondre à vos questions.

Le séjour passé à la VILLA LINDA fût très agréable.

Owner's Response: Pierre E.,. grazie per le vostre belle parole. Ricordiamo ancora il ritardo del vostro aereo ed il vostro arrivo notturno: ore 2.00 circa. Eravate molto stanchi, ma sempre sorridenti! Siete una famigliola gradevolissima e degli ospiti eccellenti. Ciao.
