“Oasis of clam near Catania”
Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed in the Red House for a 2 weeks with my wife. This was a studio type accommodation suited for 2 people. We enjoyed the stay, the Villa is located in the suburban Catania and as such is convenient for all attractions in Easter Sicily. Recommended to have a car as it is quite hilly around this location and the nearby town is really too far for walking. Tourist towns along the coast are 10 mins drive away and offer many good restarsnts.
The pool is good size with plenty of seating. Owners are available, however they respect your privacy.
Overall we had a nice time here and would recommend for both short and long stays in the area.

“A special place in a great location”

We stayed for 2 weeks in this quiet and beautiful place. The gardens and pool are wonderful. Fantastic plants within a lovingly tended garden. This is a peaceful place even though it is close to Catania. We felt very welcome and at home. The Red House is spacious and comfortable. Lovely kelims and rugs. The kitchen has new equipment and is adequately resourced. The oven is rather ancient, two burners on the hob work well, a third with perseverance. The oven was a no go area but there was a brand new microwave ( lost on us but it was there). In spite of this we cooked every night and cooked some great food.
The house is very close to the autostrada so getting to Noto, Syracuse and Catania is easy. We went twice to Mount Etna, once walking and once right to the top. This is a good place for Etna!
Finding the house on our first day was a real challenge, one way systems that defeated us. However, the owners grand daughter met us and guided us in. From then on it was a perfect stay.
