Fantastic Catania

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay in Catania largely due to Rosaria and her great flat. Rosaria met us on the platform as we got off the train from Palermo and took us by car to the flat in the centre of old Catania.

What can I say about the flat. Wow !!! it was large, well and stylishly decorated and extremely clean. We could not believe our luck .

There was a large, light ,living room with a comfortable sofa, 2 windows the size of doors with netting to keep out insects. A TV provided welcome entertainment at night if we. were in especially as there were many international channel including some in English. Free and great Wifi was also available.

The bedroom was .large with a nice high ceiling. Again this was light and airy with a large window, also with netting . This room had a large and comfortable bed along with lots of wardrobe space.

The kitchen was a great size with all necessary equipment, fridge freezer, full size cooker, washing machine etc. Rosaria also provided store cupboard items such as various oils, vinegar, salt, spices , herbs, coffee and much much more - pasta, rice, fruit and a welcome gift of Sicilian cakes.

Rosaria took us on a short walk of the area to show us the market, local delis, bakers and the local bus station. This made such a difference to our stay. We were able to try and experience things we would not have done.

Altogether, we had a great time in Catania largely due to Rosaria . She was both kind and thoughtful and this made a big difference. Added to this the flat was fantastic,the best we have stayed in during our travels in Europe.

Unforgettable stay with a wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to share our wonderful experience at Rosaria's place. It started good even before starting our trip with clear and prompt e-mail communication, so we had anticipated our vacation to be good.

Upon our arrival, (it was almost one day late due to flight delay, she accommodated us with no problem) we received owners' personal and warm greeting at property which made me feel we were back to family member's home. They briefed us not only to the property, but also took us around to familiarize the area including some awesome restaurants and cafes. It made our following stay much easier and fun. We use HomeAway rental quite often, but never received this level of personal and friendly greeting and support from owner. (Even she helped us to communicate with Lost and Found service for our lost baggage. Thank you.)

The flat is located at the center of Catania old town (2 mins walk from Piazza Duomo), and 30 seconds from famous Catania farmers market. (We enjoyed fresh fruits and produce from there.) The apartment is very very clean and well equipped including dishwasher, washer, AC and safe box, etc. Bed was comfortable with fresh linens. You would find owner's care and attentions in every detail. We had rental car few days during our a week vacation, but there was any problem on street parking on the same street. (It might be bit challenging on Saturday night. We needed to find parking space couple blocks away.)

Thanks Rosaria and Pippo for having us at your place, and making our stay unforgettable.

A gem of an apartment in the centre of old Catania

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, light and airy and excellently equipped for self catering. It is difficult to know what new to say after reading the nine 5 star reviews already submitted. The reviews are all accurate. Actually the apartment should have 6 stars - an extra one for Rosaria and Pippo who took us on a walking familiarisation tour of the environs and introduced us to the local traders so we could get straight into our holiday. There is a takeaway and excellent restaurant just a minute from the front door. The market and fish market are 2 minute's more walk and the Piazza del Duomo and the start of Via Etnea is just another minute from the market. The Catania circular bus stops just the other side of the fish market and there is a main bus station just 5 minutes further on. The Puppet theatre and Metro is 20 minute's walk. The Metro is an excellent start for the Circumetnea railway which is a 4 hour rail excursion around the foothills of Etna and well worth doing. Just about everything seems to be just around the corner from the apartment. Thank you Rosaria and Pippo for contributing so much to our holiday

A Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I recently had the pleasure of visiting Catania and stayed in this perfect apartment. Rosaria was an absolute delight to work with. The apartment was spotless, beautifully decorated, well equipped and in a great location. Rosaria showed us around the immediate area, made introductions at restaurants and made us feel right at home. Over the years we have rented apartments in Madrid, Seville, Paris and other cities. This by far has been the nicest apartment we have rented. It is right in the middle of everything but still very quiet and serene. A great place to stay!

What a Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

What a surprise in Catania! We had such a friendly and grand welcome to this beautiful city. Rosaria went out of her way to show us every detail we might need in the apartment, took us down to the market and introduced us to her favorite butcher, pointed out all the best restaurants. The apartment was perfect in every way, fresh flowers, pastries and even a bottle of wine. Tastefully furnished. Very quiet. The location was perfect for an entry into this city. Easy access to the bus terminal for day trips to Etna, Siracusa or the beach. We would highly recommend and are frequest visitors to Sicily and look forward to our visit next year.
