hospitality catania

Claudio exceeded my expectations to make my stay as pleasant as possible. Before I arrived, he stocked the fridge with food and bottled water and called a few times during my stay to make sure I was comfortable. He even took the time to bring by some fresh fruit. The apartment is true to the photos – cute, comfortable, and in a very convenient location. Would recommend!   –  Haley (Fayetteville, Arkansas, Stati Uniti)

ospitalità catania

 

The first reason why you need to go to this apartment is the host Claudio. Rooms in the house were made personally by him. Design and colours looks fantasticly well and lively there ! The area is also very good and silent, you can find everything you want in the local stores and street markets. But at the same way there are a lot of cafes, bars and restorans nearby so your nightlife just may be what you need 😉 And Claudio is a fantastic man, he will never let you down during your stay ! We enjoyed every day in Catania largely thanks to him. Bring your lover with you, Sicily need love !   –  Arthur (San Pietroburgo, Russia)

Sono super contenta! La casa è esattamente come descritta: piccolina ma con ogni comfort, c’è tutto quello che serve. E’ arredata in modo molto bello e creativo e l’atmosfera è davvero rilassante. Inoltre collocata in pieno centro storico, si arriva a piedi ovunque! E poi che dire: Claudio è un ospite eccellente! Disponibilissimo, gentile, cortese…Un’esperienza fantastica. Grazie!   –  Cecilia (Sabaudia, Italia)

гостинність Catania

 

Claudio and Lea were amazing hosts! They made us feel home and were always available to help us or give advices for nice places to go and experiences to enjoy in Catania. The apartment artistic touch inspired our visit and surely brought happiness to our mood and daily atmosphere. The location is perfect! Just close to the fish market, pubs, restaurants and Savia (the best place in town and maybe in Sicily to have arancini and cannolo)! Grazie per tutto, Claudio and Lea!   –  Luca (Ginevra, Svizzera)

كاتانيا الضيافة

 

Nous sommes arrivé à 9h du matin, Claudio nous attendait. En plein centre de Catane, une petit nid d’aigle soul le toit d’un palace nous a ravis durant 6 jours. Silence total la nuit, réveil le matin au soleil dans un décors coloré et chaleureux imaginé par Claudio. Un bon lit, des lampes qui donnent un éclairage intime le soir, une cuisine où rien ne manque, que du bonheur. Et Claudio, artiste peintre, un homme extraordinaire de bonté et de générosité qui a partagé avec nous sa Sicile. Une rencontre rare, d’une grande richesse qui a fait de notre voyage un moment d’intenses émotions. Nous ne rêvons que d’y retourner. Grazie mille Claudio, ti amiamo! Luca e Ingrid.   –  Luca (Yverdon-les-Bains, Svizzera)

l'hospitalité catane

 

Claudio’s apartmant is an amazing one. Full of work of arts from Claudio himself and others. Every day we found something new, some lovely detail in the apartment. It is moreover a very peaceful and silent place in an old and atmospheric building, located close to the city center (appr. 10-15 min walk). Next to the building there’s a parking place where we could left our car for the nights as the parking is free between 20 pm till 8 am. In case we arrived earlier back to the house or left later in the morning 1-1.5 euros were sufficient to spend on parking each time. Came very handy, as the parking can be a difficult mission in every city in Sicily. A local market is located 2 min walk from the flat, where you can find all sort of fresh local goods (sea food, vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese, sausages, etc). The people are very friendly and often offer you tasters, or simply teach you a few useful Italian phrases. Best place to embrace the local culture and community. Claudio welcomed us with a glass of fine Sicilian red wine. I’m from Hungary and used to drink good quality wine, but this was truly amazing and something special. Claudio left a whole bottle for us, as well as some water, provided clean towels and so on. Nonetheless he gave us a booklet of his work of arts and paintings, with a personal message to us. Great people, with a lot of heart, comfortable, peaceful and lovely apartment and a charming city around us. I think we will return one-day. I can only be grateful that we chosed Claudio and his lovely flat. Thank you for the friendly atmosphere!   –  Márton (Budakeszi, Ungheria)

vendéglátás Catania

 

Claudio welcomed us very warmly with a smile and all the information one may want to feel comfortable and enjoy their stay. He was always willing to help or even go out of his way to help with whatever we needed even when it did not relate to the house but our holidays. The mezzanine was gorgeous and has an excellent location to help us get a real taste of beautiful Catania. We love Catania, we love Sicilia and we love Claudio – such a personality!   –  Katerina (Nicosia)

Claudio war ein perfekter Gastgeber, der sich sehr um uns gekümmert hat und uns selbst zum Flughafen gefahren hat. Die Wohnung ist ideal gelegen, vollkommen ruhig und aussergewöhnlich, künstlerisch gestaltet. Sie entspricht der Beschreibung.   –  Rainer (Stoccarda, Germania)

Sicily needs love

Sicily needs love

In Sicilia passando attraverso gli agrumeti, è visibile a tutti la mortificazione che ricevono questi autentici gioielli, non solo geometricamente parlando, ma anche nutrizionalmente. I nostri agrumi possiedono proprietà salutari incredibili. Periodi di crisi, ma forse anche di pensiero. Mi piacerebbe che le colazioni di tutti i bambini, ragazzi, studenti, ma anche ospedali, fossero alimentate con prodotti locali. Pensiamo sempre all’esportazione, non pensando che la migliore promozione, è l’attuale consumo. Non esiste pensiero più presente, di riavvicinare il nostro futuro, al nostro orgoglioso passato.
