Dimora di Sicilia is a beautiful 18th-century building in the heart of Catania near the Piazza della Cattedrale. The owner is also the architect who has entirely restored the building, including the original frescoes and painted walls. Modern comforts combined with the frescoes, original features and antique furniture make this one of the most authentic Sicilian experiences you can have. The house has 5 bedrooms, sleeping up to 13 adults and children. Pet-friendly.
Dine by candlelight on the terrace or head down to the street below and choose one of the many Sicilian restaurants which serve colourful plates of local produce. There are two traditional markets just beneath the house which sell fresh fish and local vegetables.
Just a short walk away is an old seaside resort perched on the stone cliffs. Here you can dive into the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean and be back home within 10 minutes. During the cooler hours of the afternoon is the ideal time to explore the archaeological sites, museums and churches in the old town. If you love walking and nature then hiking on Mount Etna or in the many nature reserves is a great way to spend a day. Private and bespoke tours can easily be arranged on request to avoid group tours. Dimora di Sicilia offers a personal 24-hour concierge service giving you tips on how to live like a local.
Free parking is available.
