About Salvatore

Hi, my name is Salvatore D’Aquino and I’m glad to present you my Villa “Don Salvatore. Our house is a recent construction and follows all the latest regulations.

Salvatore purchased this villa in 1988

Why Salvatore chose Catania

I decided to rent the property to show our amazing land to those who don’t know it yet. The name “Don Salvatore” comes from my grandfather Salvatore, a simple and generous man, who worked hard all his life together with his wife Maria, building this house thanks to many sacrifices, and making possible all this.

Our philosophy is based on clear principles: cordiality, cleanliness and especially a familiar atmosphere. Those values characterize our hospitality.

If you are looking for an experience full of memories, Villa Don Salvatore is the perfect place for your vacation!

What makes this villa unique

Our house produces and uses only alternative and clean solar energy.

Amazing place for a large family… A/C & Pool

We were a family of eight (5 adults and 3 children) travelling in Sicily in July 2012. We were looking for a villa large enough to accommodate us all. Holiday House Don Salvatore was the perfect place, a villa with 3 units. We stayed in the Maria unit (2nd floor) at Holiday House Don Salvatore for 10 days. The house was truly a “home away from home”. The owners (Salvatore & Anna) were so welcoming and friendly.

The unit itself had just been renovated; it has air-conditioning (which we found a must in July), 4 huge bedrooms with big closets and storage, 2 full bathrooms, a washing machine, a fully-equipped kitchen (including a top quality automatic espresso maker), a balcony that wraps around the entire building, and a backyard with a beautiful in-ground pool. There is also a remote controlled security gate at the entrance.

After staying in 2 other properties in Sicily, we found that one of the best features this property is that the owners Salvatore & Anna occupy the 1st floor. Salvatore with his big smile is at your complete disposal for touristic advice and to take care of any of your needs. Anna suggested we visit the Destro winery, which was an unforgettable experience and one of the highlights of our entire trip.

We highly recommend this property; you will not be disappointed…

Thank you Anna & Salvatore for everything, we will never forget you and the wonderful time we had during our visit, you are perfect hosts.

Grazie mille !
