About cinzia petucco

We are a family of four, my husband is a farmer and I look after the properties we let . We have been living in this area for 20 years and are pleased to share the peace and beauty of our countryside with other people.

We try to do everything we can to make people feel at home and help them in case of need, so we are really happy when our guests say they had a great time here with us .

Why cinzia petucco chose Catania

We bought this apartment in 2007 because we love the peaceful location in the countryside, the amazing view of MtEtna and at the same time the proximity to the beautiful beach and the easy access.

We furnished it carefully and tried to make it as comfortable and cosy as it were our family house. We have accommodated a lot of people till now and had the pleasure to see some of them coming back for the third time.

What makes this apartment unique

The air conditioning and the pool are very welcome facilities in the summertime ; no trafficated roads nearby or noisy bars and restaurants, the flat is located in a secure gated community.
