Why Vito Sapienza chose Catania

The house, built in the middle of '70, has been considered by three generations the ideal location for a light-hearted period either during summer or winter.

Parents, sons, friends and then the girl friends and at the end the nephews were used to meet here, free from the day by day routine, for diving, swimming, sailboat riding, simply getting the suntan or pick up the seashells on the sand along the seaside and waiting for the savory dishes of nonna Angela.

Also in winter people were coming here to have a walk on the beach with the smell of saltiness and the sea flavor, foretasting the pleasure of reading a nice book in front of the woodstove and with a glass of good wine.

Old style but reasonably comfortable.

  • 3 of 5

A bit out of the way and the security gate was off putting. Roads to the property were terrible. The mobile wifi did not always work. Plenty of utensils were available. There was no shortage of anything. However the outside was overgrown and internally the décor was old fashioned

Haus veraltet mit Charme der 60er Jahre in heruntergekommener Umgebung

  • 1 of 5

Positiv: Bettwäsche/Handtücher wurde kostenlos gestellt, eine Kaution musste nicht hinterlegt werden, Vito (Vermieter) war stets hilfsbereit, Mückengitter an allen Fenstern (sind auch lebensnotwendig wegen der vielen Mücken ), sicherer Parkplatz auf dem Grundstück, schöner Terrassenplatz, Nähe zum Flughafen: nur 10 Autominuten

Negativ: Haus ist renovierungsbedürftig insbesondere das Bad muss dringend erneuert werden da; die Dusche war verkalkt. Die Außendusche ist defekt, Stahlfeder kommt aus Matratze im Kinderbett, fehlender Ventilator im Kinderzimmer, keine Klimaanlage im Haus)

Das Haus befindet sich in einer Feriensiedlung aus den 60er Jahren die ziemlich heruntergekommen ist. Da der Gasofen nicht funktioniert gibt es einen separaten elektrischen Ofen. Der Strand, der fußläufig erreichbar ist teilweise vermüllt. Am letzten Tag konnten wir nicht baden da im Wasser viele lila Quallen waren. Der kleine Kiosk hat morgens kein Brot. Der nächste Supermarkt ist ca. 15 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt.

Die Wasserversorgung ist elektrisch, Da die Sicherung herausfiel hatten wir auch kein Wasser. Nachdem wir den Vermieter anriefen konnte er uns helfen. Das Kinderzimmer erinnert an eine Jugendherberge aus den 60er Jahren. Das Elternschlafzimmer war gut. Der hintere Teil des Grundstücks ist etwas verwahrlost und nicht nutzbar. Das Haus hat kein echtes Wifi sondern nur mobiles Internet was etwas unzuverlässig ist.

Morgens fahren Werbeautos mit Lautsprechern lärmend durch die Siedlung.

Estate 2016

  • 4 of 5

Proprietari cordiali, molto disponibili ed ospitali. Casa e giardino sono entrambi spaziosi, non lussuosi ma funzionali e confortevoli.

L'abitazione è situata in un contesto ambientale esclusivamente residenziale. E' ben organizzata, con diversi prodotti e beni di primaria necessità già a disposizione. Alcuni ritocchi potrebbero essere utili per migliorare la funzionalità e il confort degli ospiti, in particolare nel locale del bagno, senza che questo comprometta le caratteristiche originali, a cui i proprietari sono molto affezionati. Nel complesso il riscontro è positivo che ci consentirebbe di consigliarlo ad amici e conoscenti.

Formidable séjour !!

  • 5 of 5

Cela commence par un accueil chaleureux et émouvant de Vito et de sa femme, tout est nickel, carré, net et précis, ils aiment leur maison, leur région, ça transpire !!

Ensuite, la maison est idéalement placée, à 2 minutes à pied de la plage, vue sur l'Etna, 15 minutes en voiture de Catane, c'est parfait !

L'équipement est pratique, authentique, adapté et bien suffisant pour les vacances.

Enfin, le quartier est agréable, vivant, familial, bienveillant, un paradis... Et cette terrasse couverte... un vrai bonheur !!

Précipitez vous !!

Leila, Stéphane et Ines

Car: necessary

Leaving the Fontanarossa Catania Airport you will enter in the autoroute E45, direction Ragusa/Siracusa, exit in the SS 114 in direction Passo Martino. After crossing the Simeto river you will enconter a roundabaut, follow the Siracusa direction, just after the Hotel Restaurant Torero, turn left and follow the way to enter into the village

The location is the ideal place to wine and food excursions, looking for the tastes of the varied Sicilian tradition and the unique its old time flavors.

The area is plenty of cultural heritages of the greek.roman period in Siracusa, Pioazza Armerina, Taormina, Catania or the roundedness of the Baroque style in Noto, Acireale where an almond granita with a splash of coffee will prepare a tender ambush to your glutony.

The Etna, "la Montagna", is waiting for you to exhibit their wild black lava.
