Our home

Apartment located in the historical center of Catania with a direct view on the Ursino Castle, the medieval castle, now museum of the city.
The entire building, including the apartment, was recently restored by the owner, an architect. The apartment features all the comforts and fully renovated in contemporary style with plenty of space and furniture design. The view is unique in the city and is enjoyable in a beautiful garden terrace.
The apartment is on two levels: on the first throughout the living area, a large open space of 120 sqm with a terrace garden at the center on the second level bedrooms with a further terrace with views of Mount Etna.
If you're lucky you can enjoy a safe distance the eruptions of Mount Etna volcano: great!
