About Filippo

We are Loredana and Filippo.

As enthusiasts and lovers of the area and the surroundings, we are at your disposal to give advice and suggestions to make sure your stay is as pleasant at it can be.

Why Filippo chose Catania

We love our island, its story, its people and its culture. We love to live our beautiful land in every moment of the year, we love our sea but also the splendid mount Etna. We are, and we demonstrate it, precise and trustful hosts. From the beginning of this renting experience, we always tried to offer something more and different to our guests, putting ourselves in their clothes and asking ourselves what would we have wanted if we were tourists here in Sicily, more exactly in Catania.

Kindness, attention and coziness are important and our ambition is to represent the “local friend”, that makes you live and understand the spirit of Sicily.

Our holiday house “Il Ciclope”, is not like an anonymous and impersonal hotel flat, but it is more like a second home where you can refuge from the daily stress and just relax and enjoy yourself.

We could give you useful information about the best ways to move around, just like renting a car and how to move to or from the airport.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideal for those who like to indulge in a regenerating break and to get pampered by the scents, flavors and atmosphere of the land of Sicily.

The holiday home is situated in the wonderful scenery of the” Riviera dei Ciclopi “ nearby Acitrezza, an old seafaring town that has become the home of Catania’s nightlife thanks to its clubs, restaurants and summer events.

The legend says, that Odysseus during his voyage on the Mediterranean, landed on an island inhabited with a giant with one eye, Polyphemus. The rocks which Polyphemus threw to Odysseus' boat are

still present in Acitrezza and are known as “ I Faraglioni”.

The location is a perfect starting point for visiting all of eastern Sicily: Catania and Acireale are reachable within minutes, with a bit more more time the Mount Etna, the Europe's biggest volcano, can be easily reached for unforgettable trekking experiences and by using the highway you can easily get to beautyful places such as Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Messina,Tindari, Syracuse, Noto, Piazza Armerina e the "Villa del Casale".

The area offers boat and pedal boat trips along the coast as well as scuba diving experiences inside the Area Marina Protetta 'Isole Ciclopi'.

Great property with an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our choice. The property is a five minute walk to a small fishing village and an excellent based for exploring the delights of eastern Sicily. We found the property to be well equipped and perfect for a couple. The aspect of the property provides sunshine until the afternoon and is then shaded and this, together with the property being air conditioned, was most welcome relief from the heat.

The village provides a large choice of dining options as well as local bakers and grocers and there is a large supermarket around 10 minutes drive north of the village.

The owners are charming, hospitable and helpful and added to our holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

Excellent Location and Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted warmly by Filippo. The apartment was spotless with all of the amenities a family needs for a comfortable vacation. It is a short walk to the sea, shopping and restaurants. It is also a good base to explore the Eastern coast of Sicily. Loredana made the reservation process very smooth and was a joy to meet when we checked out. We would stay here again.

We have had a wonderful week staying here and exploring the east coast of Sicily. The apartment is extremely well equipped, very well furnished, spacious and with a lovely terrace where we had breakfast every day! Very convenient for Catania airport and to visit places such as Syracuse, Taormina and Mount Etna. Loredana and Filippo made us very welcome and ensured everything was perfect for our stay. If you want to visit this part of Sicily, this is the ideal base for you.
