To travel with style, try a palatial experience of Palazzo Cattolica Art -Apartment!
“There is not much to add to the many positive reviews that were already posted here. Antoinio's apartment is indeed a quirkily arty and comfortable oasis above the historical centre of Palermo. Quiet and sunny in the day, one step away from buzzing friendly bars at night. And the host is as friendly and helpful as described. The place has a homely feel that competes with Palermo's many sites and draws you back "home" for a siesta or early night and makes it worth climbing the 132 steps of the magnificent entry stairs. We spent 8 days here and it is somewhere we would like to go back if we find ourselves in Palermo again. It sleeps four, but probably works best for a couple or three-four very good friends that don't mind sharing a bedroom, as there not really are any "private" rooms (apart from the bathroom! :)”
Wonderful Aeolian house with breathtaking sea view. A place to regenerate your body and mind, where to spent relaxing moments away from the daily routine and finally, surrounded by nature, to enjoy the silence.
“Alvise's house is exactly as presented by him and as imagined by us. An alcove suspended between sea and sky. To reach it you will have to prepare yourself for about 30 minutes of ascent, about 700 steps, but you will not feel the fatigue. At every step, the view is so magical that you forget the sweat. There is no drinking water, but the fantastic outdoor shower with sea view will make you forget everything else. The three terraces of the house, arranged on different levels, will allow you to enjoy the breathtaking view that will change every minute. The colors are vivid, they vibrate. Don't miss sunrise and sunset. They cannot be described with words. We recommend hiking shoes, the island trails are worth exploring in all directions. It is not an island for those who love the typical beach life. Rather for those who like snorkeling. Even today, after a week, I continue to dream of the days spent in Alicudi. It is an island firm in the past, to understand and respect. There are no roads, no cars. There are only mule tracks, illuminated by the stars at night. And people, the inhabitants of the island, who, if at first they seem rather grumpy and closed, then welcome you as part of their family. It's an experience, not just a vacation, that if lived without prejudice it will remain forever in the heart. Alvise's house is exactly as he presented it and we imagined it to be.

Avvolti nel cuore di Ragusa ibla....avvolti negli splendidi scenari della roccia naturale questa camera trasmette piacevoli emozioni rilassanti e romantiche...godetevi un te...un caffè..una doccia ..una notte immersi in questo ambiente "all comfort"
“Biagio is an excellent hosts and is extremely helpful and available despite not being on site. The house/ cave is breathtaking on entry with thoughtful touches everywhere, and a fantastic balcony with stunning views over Ragusa! If you’re using both bedrooms it’s great as you have plenty of privacy with the ground floor bedroom having an en-suite with shower, and the bedroom on the top floor having use of the fully equipped bathroom on the first floor. If arriving by car we would recommend leaving it in the car park at the bottom of the hill as you come into Ragusa Ibla and walking to the house as it’s a little tricky to find initially, but once you know where it is it’s really well positioned... we still left the car in the car park tho! This was a tremendous find and we would strongly recommend staying there... Thankyou Biagio!!”
