Ottima Accoglienza !

  • 5 of 5

Arrivati ad Aci Castello, paesino vicino a Catania ben collegato con i mezzi pubblici, abbiamo raggiunto l'appartamento a pochi passi dal castello normanno. Siamo stati accolti dal proprietario che, con discrezione e gentilezza, ha saputo garantirci un appartamento accogliente, ben fornito e curato in ogni dettaglio.

Consigliato assolutamente!

Owner's Response: Andrea e Cinzia sono dei bravissimi e gentili ragazzi. Hanno saputo integrarsi facilmente nel contesto sociale. Grazie alla loro accurata preparazione, sono riusciti, in pochi giorni, a fare tantissime tappe, raggiungendo i luoghi di maggiore interesse ed attrazione. E' stata una bella esperienza di confronto ed ospitalità!

Everything as expected / Alles wie erwartet

  • 5 of 5

Schönes kleines Appartment mit allem was man brauchtin der Nähe vom Meer. Für 2 Personen ideal. Grosse Terasse (das Meer sieht man leider nicht). Gute Pizzeria (Jonica) in Sichtweite. Vermieter sehr nett und zuvorkommend (allerdings sollte man etwas englisch sprechen!)

Insgesamt war es seht gut!

Nice small appartment with all necessities near the sea. Ideal for 2. Big terrace (unfortunately you cannot see the sea from there). Good place to get pizza not far away. The landlord is very nice and helpful.

We had a great time!
