About the property

Il Pozzo e l'Ulivo (the water well and the olive tree) is located in a very quiet area of Catania, about 3.5 km from the crowded city center. Here you can enjoy the relaxing athmosphere of a typical Sicilian country house, or you can take a 10 minutes subway metro ride to Catania city center.

We are delighted to offer you a stunning 2-bedrooms apartment that can sleep up to five people. Both bedrooms are each provided with private bathroom and there is a fully equipped kitchen. With free wireless internet, outside is off road parking, and lawned garden with outdoor furniture. Just ten minutes from Catania city center. Additionally, a beautiful external Jacuzzi will be at your disposal from April to October.

For its position il Pozzo e l'Ulivo is the ideal startpoint for a number of exciting day trips to discover the beauty of the Sicilian eastern coast. Among the possible day trips we list Riviera dei Ciclopi (10 km), Etna (25 km), Taormina (50 km) and Siracusa (65 km).

We live in another apartment of the same property. We easily communicate in English, French, Spanish, Czech or Italian. Therefore, we will be more than pleased to help you to design your perfect holiday in Sicily

Great location! Close to the Meteo station. Well maintained and inviting.

Alessandro and Zuzanna were very good hosts and had many travel tips to share. They are a charming young couple. We enjoyed our 2 week stay at their property. The only negative was that the power went out for one evening during our stay. Not their fault. We loved Sicily. Very friendly and helpful. My wife speaks some Italian which helped.

Gem in Catania

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for better accommodations or better hosts at this lovely villa. Zuzana and Alessandro were very gracious and helpful. Their local knowledge made our visit so much better. We are outside in the lovely garden almost every night. The villa itself is spacious with two good size bedrooms and a cozy kitchen. The washer came in very handy. We would come back again!

bellissima vacanza!! una casa perfetta!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato presso il Pozzo e l Ulivo una decina di giorni d estate con nostro figlio di 3 anni. La casa e' molto bella, curata, arredata con gusto e accogliente. Due ampie camere da letto (una con possibilità di lettino per il bambino) due bagni molto belli e una graziosa cucina. Bellissimo il giardino, molto curato e spazioso...risulta piacevolissimo per una cena all aperto,per prendere il sole o per godere di momenti di relax. Per chi ha bimbi, una ottima opportunità per giocare un po all aria aperta. I proprietari sono persone gentilissime e disponibili. La zona e' tranquilla e molto silenziosa...rispetto ad altre zone della città mediamente piu fresca in estate. Nelle vicinanze negozi, bar e supermercati.

Consigliatissima per vacanze in famiglia o anche in compagnia. Ottima come base per visitare la citta' o i dintorni. Utile per spostarsi l utilizzo di un'auto.

Abbiamo passato una bella vacanza, apprezzata da grandi e piccini. Torneremo presto!!!
