About Giovanni

Fifth generation owner of S. Catrini estate, I grow up here and I love this place. Hope to share this with you.

Giovanni purchased this farmhouse in 1812

What makes this farmhouse unique

The cheateu is a traditional sicilian farmhouse restored in 2014. It is inside our 85 hectares estate. Silence, quiteness, slow flow of time, nature, peace, away from the chaos of the city but also well positioned and close enought to the highway to easily reach every town. If you are looking for that you find the right place.

lovely house in the country

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this lovely country house which is set in beautiful countryside. The garden and patio area are great for dining outside. The host wa very helpful with ideas of places to visit and there was a store cupboard of essentials we could use which was really handy.

We visited many lovely places in the local area and enjoyed the local speciality pizoli (not sure on spelling) a kind of double pizza yum.

A calm and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a nice week at Giovanni's wonderful house that is situated between olive groves and almond trees. It is a very remote location, so perfect for anyone who wants to be undisturbed and in nature. The magnificent garden and olive trees field are a perfect path for long walks in the quiet, and you can discover on precious little fossiles on stones that are left from ancient times. It was wonderful to have the breakfast in the morning on the terrace and to use the open fireplace in the evenings. We spent our week there in February so the open fireplace gives the house a nice warmth.

If you are a friend of animals this is your place, the cats are adorable and you have regular visits of horses in the garden, company of dogs, etc.

Its location is very convenient, because you can reach the highway taking you to Syracuse and Catania very easily.

For any problems Giovanni and his family are very careful and present. The olive oil produced by Giovanni is excellent, and the house is already filled with food in case you arrive late and need to rest before the first shopping time. The beds are comfortable, and plenty of blankets, pillows, towels are provided.

A car is absolutely necessary if you want to enjoy all the hiking possibilities in the surroundings and visit especially the South-East of Sicily.

We can highly recommend this place if you want to discover South-East Sicily.

Toller Aufenthalt!

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten eine wirkliche tolle Woche und haben alles so vorgefunden wir abgebildet, bzw es war sogar noch größer als wir dachten!

Das Grundstück ist sehr groß, man ist sehr für sich und kann die Natur genießen!

So ein freundlicher und bemühter Vermieter wie Giovanni ist uns bisher noch nicht begegnet, alleFragen und wünsche konnten wir an ihn richten und er ist so bemüht gewesen, das es einem schon unangenehm war! Ganz ganz großes Lob!

Wir haben uns auch wegen ihm sehr wohl gefühlt und würden es jeder Zeit weiter empfehlen!

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour dans l'oliveraie de Giovanni. La maison est calme, isolée et tranquille entourée de terrasses ombragées dont on profite selon la température. Vue sur l'Etna (nous avons eu la chance d'admirer un soir une éruption) ou sur le port industriel à plusieurs km et caché par la végétation (oliviers et caroubiers). Les enfants ont apprécié l'espace extérieur (zone d'herbe) et les animaux. Jack est parti vivre de nouvelles aventures durant notre séjour mais le chat Micione et son timide camarade ont bien profité de notre présence. Le riche passé culturel et humain est présent partout sur cette côte sicilienne... Nous avons adoré la nécropole de PANTALICA à qq km de la propriété. Giovanni est charmant et aime discuter (en anglais) et conseiller ses lieux préférés ... ainsi que les granite pistache/amande! Nous commanderons peut être de l'huile d'olive dense et parfumée lors de la récolte d'octobre!

le calm de la campagne

Des propriétaires sympas, y compris jack (le chien) et les chats et chevaux

un cadre très agréable dans une location conforme à la description avec un internet qui a bien marché.

Parfait pour 4 adultes et un ou deux enfants,un véhicule est indispensable

Nous y retournerons avec plaisir et l'huile d'olive produite par la famille est excellente, n'hésitez pas à repartir avec quelques bouteilles.
