“Simon is the best host!”
Reviewed 5 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed here for 7 nights over Easter, me, my husband and 7 year old daughter. The apartment is very well equipped and Simon has put a lot of thought into the facilities, everything you need is supplied, towels, shower gel, cleaning products, washing line and pegs, even umbrellas. The apartment has a kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, kettle and toaster, and there is a washing machine in the bathroom. The apartment is split level with the bedroom upstairs. The sofa folded out into a bed for our daughter. The apartment is located within walking distance of all the main sights, just a few minutes from the main square. The train and bus stations are 10 minutes away. It is easy to catch the airport bus to the main train station and walk to the apartment from there. We used the apartment as a base for touring the eastern side of Sicily and managed to fit in trips to Syracuse, Taormina, Etna and the Valley of the Temples. We also went to the beach near the airport which is sandy and good for kids, and also to Acitrezza which has beautiful clear water but is very rocky. The apartment is close to lots of bars and restaurants, some good ones are tucked away down little side streets. Hunt them out, it’s worth it! The bar next door has pool tables and music, the music was audible at a low level in the bedroom but finishes at midnight so didn’t disturb us. There is a good supermarket a few blocks away that sells everything you will need. There are some side streets to the north of the apartment that are best avoided, but apart from them the city felt safe to walk around in the evening and the main square is beautiful at night. We had a lovely time in Catania and would recommend these apartments to anyone who wants to be near the sights and nightlife. Simon is a most helpful person and answered all our questions. Thanks very much and hope to see you again one day.

“Spacious, well equipped, delightful apartment in the heart of Catania”
Reviewed 15 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This charming apartment is located near all of the must see sights of Catania. It is in the old town, convenient to the Duomo, fish market and lots of restaurants and bars. The landlord, Simone, was attentive, and his parents, who have a business next door were helpful and delightful. The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to actually cook, the bathroom modern and large, and the bedroom spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend this casa vacanze for your stay in Catania!

“Good apartments”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Wonderful duplex apart, are located next to the Teatro Massimo Bellini. They have everything: washing machine, oak furniture, free wi-fi. Responsive home, I had to print out documents on paper, increase the scale of the drawings, so Simone (the owner) spent a long time with your printer, but still did as I was not. But there is one big minus quiet pedestrian street in the afternoon, but the cafes open at night, restaurants and bars and festivities begin, if there is football, the fans did not fall silent for a minute. My husband and the child does not interfere with the noise, and I sleep very sensitively. If not this time, then go ahead and would recommend these be apart.
