This place is a bit hard to find, since there is no sign on the street, and the house number (25A) is hidden... Otherwise the appartment is spacious, plus a small garden in front. Very quiet area.

We spent a wonderful week in Sicily and we were very happy with our choice of Massimo's place. It is charming indeed. Very close to Catania's centre (5 - 10 min drive), but in a different world. Catania is very busy and noisy and stressful (especially to drive through). But this house has a beautiful green and flowery garden. A lemon tree with lemons and flowers, an olive tree, bougainvillaea, cactuses, plenty of shade and quiet - perfect to enjoy a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. Plus parking in the garden - a major benefit in Catania. The house itself is very comfortable, clean, with everything that you need. Massimo provided us with a lot of sicilian oranges and the necessary things for breakfast and he checked on us (on the phone) every day to see if we needed anything. Also, the access to highway is quite easy, especially to Taormina, Messina We definitely recommend it

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans la petite maison (sans doute une dépendance de la maison juste en face) de Massimo. Tout était très bien, conforme aux photos. L'appartement est super, et beaucoup de rangement dans la chambre : on adore ! Et la pièce de vie est très très agréable. Nous y étions la première semaine de septembre, et il a fait encore très chaud en Sicile, donc les climatisations dans le salon et dans la chambre furent très appréciées ! En terme d'emplacement et de praticité, c'est top car le logement est dans une petite rue assez calme (les soirées/nuits sont animées à Catane), et il est possible de se garer dans la petite cours fermée par un portail automatique dont vous aurez le bip (se garer dans les rues de Catane n'étant pas toujours évident. D'ailleurs, si je peux me permettre, prévoyez de louer une petite voiture, car les rues de Sicile sont parfois assez étroites ! Mais les adorables siciliens vous aideront si vous vous engagez dans une voie finalement trop étroites, ils ont l'habitude !). Sinon, la propriétaire de la maison en face (tellement agréable ! Elle viendra vous saluer et vous proposer ses conseils pour visiter la Sicile) a récemment eu des chatons très curieux qui sont venus nous rendre visite plusieurs fois. Nous avons adoré, mais il ne faut pas craindre ou être allergique par exemple. Attention aux affaires que vous pouvez faire sécher la nuit dehors, il y a un arrosage automatique dans le petit jardin tôt le matin. Encore merci à Massimo !

Die Unterkunft war toll und Massimo ein sehr hilfsbereiter und freundlicher Gastgeber. Die Unterkunft entsprach exakt den Bildern und der Beschreibung, es war alles da, was man braucht und sehr sauber. Massimo hat gute Tipps gegeben, bei Problemlösungen immer schnell geholfen, die Nachbarschaft war auch richtig nett und ich habe mich rundum wohl gefühlt! Ich kann eine Buchung über Massimo nur wärmstens empfehlen!

Appena arrivati siamo stati accolti da Massimo,che si è dimostrato da subito gentile e disponibile. La casa è spaziosa,accogliente,ben arredata e dotata di tutte le comodità; si tratta di una villetta perfetta per 2 persone,una depandance immersa nel verde ubicata nella zona del porto,vicinissima al centro di Catania (20 minuti circa a piedi) ed a numerosi panifici,supermarket e ristoranti. Massimo ci ha sempre dato ottimi consigli, dai ristoranti nei quali mangiare ai luoghi di mare da visitare. Questa casa è decisamente un'ottima base per esplorare in macchina la Sicilia orientale!
