“A home away from home”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This apartment is very high quality and very exceptional in many ways. We totally agree with all of the descriptions and the rave reviews on two websites, and therefore, we won’t repeat them.

Instead we highlight 2 things about host Sebastiano that truly stood out for us after staying in 11 apartments during 6 weeks of travels in Spain, Sardinia, Malta and Sicily. First his welcome introduction to the apartment was exceptionally friendly and thorough, and it includes a book with photos and descriptions of the many wall switches and other details about the apartment. Second and more impressive was that when he met us for our departure the first thing he asked was whether we had any suggestions for changes or improvements. No one at any of the other places (many of them quite terrific) asked us that during this trip, or during previous trips to Europe. Therefore this place will keep getting even better as Sebastiano implements people’s suggestions.

“Ottimo - perfect”

perfect location in the beautiful center of Catania. OK, you have to step up 82 stair treads to reach the top level BUT then you are rewarded with a lovely 2 level apartment and a most wonderful roof terrace.
Everything is neatly organized, the introduction and explanation of all features by the owner was perfect too.
Because of the location everything is nearby: the market, cafe and restaurants, the fish market, the central bus station a.s.o.
And at the last day the owner Sebastiano not only came early in the morning (6.30) for the check-out, he even took us with his car to the airport saving us 20 €!
Grazie mille Sebastiano!
At any time recommendable!

“Charming nest surrounded by church domes”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were enchanted by our stay in this appartment. Despite the unusually cold weather for Catania (meaning 10°C at night!), this tastefully decorated abode had a warmth. Sebastiano who manages the place was very attentive and helpful. And you cannot be more central in Catania unless you squat in the square in front of the Duomo.

Liked best: Owner's helpfulness; central location; quietness - apart from church bells.
Liked least: My mother-in-law found the steps a little too high. But all appartments in Sicily involve intricate and challenging climbs and few have elevators...

“Perfect place where to stay in Catania”
Reviewed 6 December 2013 for a stay in May 2012

We found our ideal home in "Tetti e chiese" location. The house is located in "the center" of Catania and it has a beautiful balcony if front of the cathedral and the main market of the city (if you are a photographer you will never leave the apartment since from each window there is a beautiful view). The house has everything and the owners, Carmelo and Seby, are fantastic people. We found bottles of water, pasta, coffee powder and many other things. House was super-clean, kitchen well equipped and furnished. Only a couple of point to have in mind: apartment is on the 3dr foor without elevator (as underlighted in the offer) and apartment is in the center of the city, so during daylight, if you pay extreme attention and you are too much sensible to the noise, you can hear voice of people coming from the square ( but, at that point, any location in the city center is not for you). My final feedback is super positive and we regret only the not having spent more days in Catania and in this amazing apartment.

“A fantastic accommodation and a dream location!!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

On arrival we were greeted warmly by Sebastino and his papa who welcomed us into their amazing accommodation, which was going to be our home for the next 7 days. The apartment surpassed all expectations. Not only was the apartment warm with the traditional Sicilian feel, it came with an amazing outdoor terrace, where we spent most of our nights eating local fresh fish from the famous fish market which is a stone throw away.

The location of the apartment is fantastic with the views to the central square of Catania. Nearby amenities, eg. local restaurants, shops and bus stations are a short walk away.

We have no hesitation in returning to or recommending Tetti & Chiese. Such a fantastic place!!
