As soon as we arrived, Giovanni was there to greet us and walk us through the apartment. He provided us with many recommendations and a map of Catania. The location was excellent, down a quiet alley near old town. The...

我們是前一天很晚才向負責人查詢空房資訊的,負責人亦能當晚迅速及詳盡地回覆令人深刻! 不但如此,appartment內全部木製家俱亦由owner 設計及製作, 房間亦給人一種溫馨安全的感覺。他們一家亦很好客,提供了不少當地資訊。特別一提 他們推介的餐廳及雪糕店真的很令人回味啊! If you want a memorable stay, that is the place ! :D Don't think, just BOOK !!

Great place. Totally fulfilled our expectations. The location was simply fantastic, right in the middle of the old city centre - only a 100 meters from the local marked.
