Good location for a quiet night before flying out of Catania Airport. Relaxed accommodation, nice 5 minute walk to quiet beach. Suitable for families. Staff were very pleasant and tried hard to help. Manager spoke good English and was very helpful. Evening meal good quality and reasonably priced. Take care turning off the main road into the side road -... More

We had one night's stay here to be close to the airport on our way home. The hotel is 15 minutes drive from the airport. Security is very good with a perimeter fence and secure gate. The rooms are accessed directly from the outdoors and have outdoor seating areas. There is a public outdoor seating area and a pool. From... More

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, and good food, plus there's a pool. The breakfast buffet is good and available early. We had lunch on our first day and were not as impressed but appreciated they served us after they normally would have stopped serving lunch. One thing, the water from the tap has a salty taste to it. This is present... More

Breakfast is terrible and if you're not one of the first there at 8am, it will of all been eaten by the other guests or insects. Rooms are depressing and the Internet connection is poor so business travellers beware. A good feature is that the beach is a 5 min walk but that's about it. Would definitely not recommend

We stayed in Catania city for 5 nights doing daytrips, at the end of our holiday we wanted somewhere quiet to unwind and enjoy the sun without queuing amongst huge crowds in lidos or on rocky beaches. They have a good size swimming pool, gorgeous sandy private beach 5 minute walk from the house and lovely 'homecooked' food with very... More

We just wanted to go to the beach for the day, and stumbled across the establishment by accident. The staff let us in the gate and were very welcoming and pointed us towards the beach, no questions asked. They even invited us to use the pool! After a swim in the sea by the sandy beach, we went back to... More

Absolutely lovely grounds full of orange trees. The food was very good, especially the breakfast. The beach is a 5 minute walk from the property and our kids loved it. The rooms are clean, staff is super nice and helpful, staff speaks English very well, and it's a short drive to many places to sightsee and shop. I highly recommend... More

A wonderful country Inn tucked away from the busy and cramped city streets of Catania. Perfectly situated on a beautiful orange orchard, you see how beautiful this mansion and its property is as soon as the private Iron gate is opened. Each room beautiful and unique and some have balconies with views of Mt. Etna. There is free Wifi and... More

A nice property surrounded by tree plantations. Good sized room, parking, NO Internet. Stuff does not speak English, but communication is possible. Downtown Catania is 20 km away and the airport is 10-15 mins drive. Convenient if you have a morning flight. If you return late, you have to open the gate yourself to park the car. Breakfast is poor... More
