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.

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.

Perfect place to explore Sicily from

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear Loredana and family

Thank you for making our holiday unforgettable. The 5 stars are giving because: 1) the way this family was welcomed us, went straight into our hearts. 2) the apartment was perfect. It has everything we need and the terrace was magnificent. In our mind, Aci trezza is the most wonderful place at Sicily. 3) the town had everything we need. Fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh fish and a handful of small restaurant with a fantastic view over the sea. The locals were so kindness and helpful. 4) Sicily is a very beautiful place and had a lot of culture to explore. We didn't see it all but the places we went to see was absolutely amazing. Sicily totally steel our hearts. 5) we stay in the apartment for 10 days and all the time Loredana and family was making sure that we had a perfect time. Thank you so much. We never forget this holiday and we will come back at spring next year.

With all our love

Christina and Michael, Denmark

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'.
