Catania, Province of Catania, Sicily
Our holiday home is a spacious 2 bedroom house dating back to the 19th century. Our house is cozy and comfortable in any season. It is perfect if you want a place where you can relax and enjoy some silence, and you are not cut off from main roads if you also want to tour the island. We have a fantastic paved garden as large as the house and totally private, where you can spend an entire afternoon in the sun or reading while kids play in a safe environment. You do not need to take the car for shopping or dining out: from our house you walk to shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants that are open all the year round. You can also reach downtown Catania and the top of Mount Etna by public transportation. We are at Nicolosi, 15 miles of the coast line and the beaches, 10 miles north of central Catania, a 15 minutes drive of motorways and a 3... More

This is a super house. Perfect for holiday with kids. The town is friendly and cozy, with a lot of restaurants, coffee places and others. The house is really nice with a big private patio, and lot of space indoors. It is very well equipped. There is a lot of things to do in the immediate area, such as walks...

Management response:

Indeed one of the main amenities in the immediate surroundings is "Monti Rossi-Etna Adventure Park": that is the correct entry you have to search on the Internet and also here on Tripadvisor

From the moment we booked this town house in Nicolosi in April 2013, everything was arranged perfectly by Luca, despite many changes to dates and itinerary by me. We arrived at the house late in the evening following a late flight and a mess-up by the car hire company we had booked, but Luca was there to greet us with...

First of all, a big thank you to Luca for his warm welcome and advice when we arrived, he really put us at ease. The Etna townhouse is a beautiful place to stay, much larger than the pictures make you believe, the size is quite deceptive! All of the rooms are furnished to the highest quality and they are full...

Additional amenities & feature info
Some of the original furniture dating back to mid 19th century has been restored. All the other pieces of furniture are wooden or wickerwork, sofas are in leather and the internal doors have been hand-decorated by a local craftsman. No plastic furniture. The master bedroom and a twin bedrooms sleep 4. A third attic room where the TV is may host another 2 but we are not very keen into having more than 4 guests: there is only one complete bathroom in the house plus another half bathroom, 4 guests is appropriate. The attic room is the only part of the house which is not on ground floor. Central heating and a central hot water system make this holiday house cozy and comfortable like your home.<BR><BR>

About the neighbourhood
You can enjoy a quiet and appeasing atmosphere in this village of 5000 dwellers in the wealthy outskirts Catania, which you definitely do not find downtown or along the coast. This village is a holiday place for us all the year round, not just in the Summer, but many Catanians have moved here to live and the village never shuts down: you never need to use a car to buy food or find a restaurant and you never feel that sort of sad "closed for season" atmosphere that you often find in coastal towns out of Summer. A very peculiar, hilly countryside surrounds villages all around this area on the volcano, with parks and picnic areas opened inside ancient craters. There are many scenic routes you can take all around Mount Etna or down to the coast, which is an average 20 km away. You c... more
