Interaction with Guests
We like to personally welcome all group members and to provide the utmost and friendly and personal service. We welcome the opportunity to assist your party with advice on local activities, events and entertainment, special experiences and even airport transfers. We interact with guests as much or as little as the guest would like. Although we do not live near the unit, we are always available to guests by phone or email. If there is anything you need whether its advice on a restaurant or local attraction- we are happy to offer suggestions. We feel that one of the best incentives to book using Airbnb is the personal contact between guest and host. We have happily shared a drink or two with guests, but are not offended at all if you are here to relax and be on your own.
We offer FREE fruit-tasting tours to have you pick, right from the orchard overlooking the sea, your own juicy red oranges, lemons or any other available fruits (plums, medlars, figs, grapes, bananitas).
Our neighborhood can be as calmly as lively you want. Simply decide if you're up for a walk to the town centre and share a chat with locals or stay at the loft to read a good book whilst contemplating from the lookout the amazing scenery..
Parking is available on site and is free of charge.
A car is recommended, but public transport is anyway easily accessible thru AST bus service, only 30' away from Catania central train/bus station.
Arrival is flexible. However, please contact me a day before to plan check-in time!
La maison est sympathique et fonctionnelle. La terrasse est fort agréable et la vue imprenable au dessus du verger du papa de Dan. Ce dernier nous a très très gentiment accueillis et nous a offert de très bons fruits (prunes, fraises, mûres et citrons).
Située à Valverde, la maison permet de bien sillonner la Sicile ionienne.
L'environnement est globalement calme en dépit d'un voisin parfois bruyant. Dan est resté toujours joignable et réceptif à nos sollicitations. Globalement une bonne adresse !
Nous avons été séduit par ce logement simple mais très agréable car donnant sur un beau paysage et étant très bien placé entre Etna, Catane et Taormina. L'accueil a été chaleureux. Nous le recommandons sans hésitation.
Nous avons séjourné dans ce bien durant 10 jours au mois de juillet. Le bien correspondait à toutes nos attentes et à la description. Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un agréable séjour avec une magnifique terrasse au calme et une vue magnifique. Idéalement situé pour visiter la côte est de la Sicile. Dan ainsi que son papa ont été formidables, accueillants et disponibles.
N'hésitez pas, nous recommandons vivement ce bien.
Petite attention particulière au petit chat qui vient nous rendre visite le matin et le soir, n'hésitez pas à lui donner du pâte il adore ça et il se laissera même câliner :)
Merci encore pour tout Dan nous garderons de merveilleux souvenirs de notre séjour.
Carmelo le pere de Dan nous a vraiment super bien accueilli. Il nous a conseille ce aue nous pouvions visiter dans la region de Catane et il a ete vraiment tres gentil et acceuillant! La maison correspond exactement aux photos: elle est propre, agreable meme si un peu petite mais avec une superbe vue sur la mer.C'est tres calme donc on peut vraiment se reposer.
We had a great stay at Dan...his father were very friendly and kind. And the view from the terrace was amazing.....really?
The flat was big enough, comfy bed ,clean shower.
I would definately recommend to everybody this loft house :)
Dan was very helpful before arrival. Even though we arrived 1 hour before agreed, we where met by his very friendly father. We have Never spoken italian before but we Fully understood him . The place was just perfect. The view is all worth it:) would stay here any time again !! Better than the pictures
Dan's dad Carmello was lovely: very warm and kind and helpful. Dan was great with communication too: we were able to check in and out at our convenience, and he always responded quickly. The house was just okay, a kind of farmer's cottage, very rustic, and there's no separate shower from the rest of the bathroom. You definitely need a car; it's pretty remote from the city. But we only stayed one night and it was good for our purposes.

About the Host, Dan
Dynamic, live, passionate of architecture and design.
Globetrotter and avid reader of travel diaries. I'm a backpacker, 32 countries already on my ticked list and with eagerness I'm adding new cities for my future trips. Road-trips are my favourite and jumping from a cold country to a tropical destination are the mind-boggling combination I'm crazy for.
Love to have guests around and make them feel as locals while enjoying the coziness of a relaxing and interesting stay.
