Feel at home whilst living a unique experience in grizzling Sicilian background, a valley, a lookout on the sea and Etna. What else?

The Space

Your comfort, your experience are our top priorities. This enchanting place is comfortably furnished with kitchen living room,king side bed, an extra bed located on the loft and a bathroom with shower. BBQ grills on the terrace free to use.

Terrace offers an amazing view on the Ionian Sea as well as an overwhelming lookout of the volcano 'Etna'. Our Loft is immersed within a lemon trees orchard granting you some of the Sicilian traditional scents. It truly combines the tranquillity of a green nature and the proximity of the town centre (Valverde->Greenvalley).

Guest Access

Host is available at all times for any help or advice you may need during your stay.

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).

The Neighborhood

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..

Getting around

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.

  • Great stay at the loft! Amazing welcome and hosting help from Dan's father who added so much to the warm and restful atmosphere of the place. Highly recommended and hope to come back!

  • Nous avons été très bien reçu par la papa de Daniel, qui s'occupe de l'appartement. Très jolis appartement avec une super terrasse, pour les matins (un peu chaud) et les soirées après les excursions. Votre papa est très serviable. J'ai beaucoup apprécié qu'il nous emmène en bas pour aller cueillir des fruits de son vergers (cueillette généreuse, pas pu tout manger). Les citrons sont une merveille !!! Quel plaisir de rentrer le soir de se faire une salade et de cueillir directement un citron sicilien pour la salade et la vinaigrette. Système ingénieux pour la douche !

  • This cosy loft is perfectly located to visit Sicily's eastern coast hotspots. Only a 20 min drive from Catania airport, but situated on top of a hill surrounded by citron, prunes and pear trees. You will probably meet Dad, who handles the fruit around the loft, and be stuffed with an overdose of vitamin C...

  • Wir hatten eine wundervolle Woche,inmitten von Orangen und Zitronen.Dan`s Vater Camelo ist ein unglaublich gastfreundlicher Vermieter,wir haben uns sehr gut gefühlt.Das Häuschen ist klein und puristisch eingerichtet aber alles was man braucht ist da.Einer der besten Bäcker Sizilien`s ist dort an der (website hidden) Ort.
    Wir können diese saubere Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen

  • Petit coup de cœur pour ce logement. Nous avons été accueilli par le papa de Dan, qui a été adorable avec nous.
    Cette petite maisonnette est conforme aux photos, et une fois arrivés sur les lieux on ne peut qu'être charmé par le petit jardin de citronniers.
    Logement rudimentaire, mais très propre, literie très confortable, calme absolu, réveil par le gazouillement des oiseaux...
    Que ce soit pour un pied à terre pour visiter l'Etna, ou pour profiter plus longuement de la région, on recommande ce petit havre de paix.
    Douche originale (pas de cabine, on se douche à même la salle de bain) mais cela fait partie du charme.
    Connexion wifi.

    We falled in love with this property. We were received by the father of Dan, which was lovely with us.
    This small house complies with the photos, and once arrived there, you'll be obviously charmed by the lemon trees in the little garden.
    Accommodation simple but very clean, comfortable beds, quiet, woken by the chirping of birds ...
    Whether for a base to visit Mount Etna, or spend longer in the area, we recommend this little haven.
    Original shower (no cabin to shower) but it's part of the charm.
    Wifi connection.

  • We had a lovely but brief stay in dans apartment as we were leaving for lipari the following morning. Both dan and his father were very accommodating, dans dad even dropped us to the train station to catch a trim in the morning as it was a national holiday with limited bus service.
    As we tribes late we could not see the beautiful views until our departure the next morning. Perhaps next time we will be able to stay for longer and enjoy the area!

  • We had a lovely stay at the loft. Valverde is a cute little village. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get away by bus ;-) Thanks for everything, Dan!

  • Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Carmello, le papa de Daniele, très gentil et disponible. Il nous a fait découvert son grand jardin, à côté de l'habitation et nous avons eu droit à la dégustation des fruits du moments (oranges...). Il y a de la place pour garer sa voiture sur le côté de la maison ( gratuit) et la rue est très calme. Le village s'appelle Valverde avec supérette, boulangerie, bar...Beau petit village.

  • The loft was confortable enough in a secluded location (you need a car). The view is truly enjoyable. We were met by Dan's Dad who really was friendly.
    It was a bit cold when we were there so being able to take longer hot shower would have been nice.
    The confort of thr bathroom is basic but overall it is good enough value for the price
    The village near the flat is charming.

  • Une excellente adresse pour ceux qui aiment le calme et la nature : citronniers et fleurs d'orangers parfument l'air. Un intérieur simple mais qui ne manque de rien.

Dynamic, live, passionate of architecture and design. Globetrotter and avid reader of travel diary. I'm a backpacker, 32 countries already on my ticked list and with eagerness I'm adding new cities for my future trip. 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.
