“Luxury in the heart of Catania”
Reviewed 12 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

This is an absolutely beautiful property right in the heart of Catania. I stayed here with my partner and 2 kids and the sofa bed was perfect for the kids. The property was immaculately spotless with not a speck of dust! It had all the amenities for a perfect stay with all things in the kitchen and bathroom, plenty of towels and the shower is amazing! We used the washing machine daily to wash our beach towels and they would be dry in the morning! The air con was a life saver as it was amazing to come home to a nice cool home. The property literally has bars and restaurants on the doorstep although they are open until the early morning you don’t hear a thing in the property as these bars are quite chilled and relaxed. You can buy a beer for one euro and sit with the view of the castle can’t get cheaper than that! I recommend the restaurant artu which is right outside the property and try the buffet starter it’s delicious and steak is amazing there. Once you get into Catania town there is amazing restaurants and beautiful buildings and lovely views of mount etna. Also if you can get up early and walk to the fish market it’s quite amazing to watch how it all works the kids loved it. Contrary to other reviews the beach is walkable and we walked daily to the beach and it took us 20 mins from the apartment walking with a 3 and 6 year old. The first time you make the walk you may think it’s a little difficult but I can assure you the sicillian people are lovely and very accommodating we saw regulars and they would smile and say hello to us and the kids every time we passed. The walk from the apartment is direct go alongside the right side of the castle and then straight up (check your map) be prepared to walk on the road a lot as pedestrian walkways are scarce. I recommend maeve beach as you get a clean beach with an umbrella and sun lounger for 6 Euro and there is a bar there for cheap beers, drinks and ice cream. The water is very shallow near the beach so great for kids. Diego was a great host who met us at the property and explained everything to us and after was no trouble to contact when we had questions. Couldn’t have stayed anywhere better in a better location literally a luxury home from home. Would recommend this to anyone. Thank you Diego!

“Great location, close to the town centre”
Reviewed 9 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Diego's apartment is a comfortable, and well furnished apartment close to the Castello Ursino. It is a 5 minute walk to the Piazza Duomo, and many of the sights of Catania. There are very good restaurants on the doorstep, or a short walk into town. Diego is an excellent host, and answered our questions ahead of the visit. We would stay here again if we visited Catania.

“Delightful apartment for Catania and surroundings”
Reviewed 11 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

The perfect location while staying in Catania. This delightful newly-renovated apartment in the middle of the city is just 5 minutes walk from the city centre with the famous fish market, Duomo, restaurants and shops. The very comfortable apartment has been tastefully renovated with a lovely bathroom. The friendly owner Diego was there to meet us when we arrived (even though we landed late in the evening) and when we checked out. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Apollo home and will recommend it further.
