Penthouse apartment overview - owner's description
The house is situated in the heart of the historic city centre and opposite Castello Ursino, a castle constructed for Frederick II and dating back to 1300. It has a privileged position inside the main tourist route and within an area noted for the main hot-spots in the city nightlife; restaurants, pubs and discoteques. It is the perfect location for an exclusive and very comfortable city stay.Within a brief walking distance it is possible to visit nearly all the main tourist sights amongst these the Duomo (cathedral), the Greek amphitheatre, the Benedictine monastery, the Roman amphitheatre, the spas of Achilles and ' della Rotonda', the well of Gammazita, the river Amenano, Palazzo Biscari, via Etnea and the Massimo Bellini operahouse. Using public transport, a ten minute ride can take you to the sandy beaches and volcanic rocks and it is possible to reach Mount Etna by road in about 40 minutes. Bicycles can be organised to tour the historic city centre. The house has been recently renovated by the architect owner in a contemporary style but at the same time retaining the original features and materials used in the architectural tradition.The property is situated on the second and top floor: the first level for daytime use with a spacious living room with TV, projector and speakers, a dining area, a very modern and comfortable kitchen (with external barbeque) and a communal bathroom with traditional Sicilian tilework dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. The whole floor is created around a terrace garden with a splendid view towards the castle : the upper floor has two large bedrooms with a total of beds to accommodate 6 people and each bedroom has a private bathroom.From one of the bedrooms there is access to a terrace with a sunbathing area, outside shower and a fantastic view towards Mount Etna. Here, too, there is a spacious clothes- washing area. The house is fully fitted with all mod cons including WiFi and pc. The furnishings are of high quality design with some pieces having been exclusively commissioned by the owner. Catania's airport (Fontanarossa) can be reached within 10 minutes as can the railway station and the house is also only a five minute walk away from the main shopping street. A five minute taxi ride can take you to the main bus terminal where further journeys can be made to Taormina ( 40 minutes), Siracusa and Ortygia (30 minutes) as well as many other interesting locations on the island.
