Just returned from 10 day stay at Villa Galetea. Apartment is comfortable and well equipped, although lacked air conditioning and the internet connection was hardly ever available.
The villa is set in beautiful private gardens and has lovely views of Etna, the village harbour and out to sea. There is a lovely pool and if you wish swimming from the rocks just outside the villa's rear gates. Pippo, the keyholder, is very friendly and helpful.
There are 2 mini markets in the village and a supermarket and bank about 10 minutes drive away. The village is unspoiled and has a welcoming bar offering snacks, ice cream etc and 2 restaurants (one offering just fish and the other a slightly wider menu with pizza and occasionally meat dishes).
Overall a great base for exploring the Catania area of the island.
