Casa Mongibello I
Holiday apartment in Sicily

As the Etna is tenderly called „Mongibello“ by the Sicilians it suggested itself to call this holiday flat with a fantastic view to the “Mongibello” equally. It features a large roof terrace and many creative fittings.

Journey there

On the motorway A18/E45 between Catania and Messina take the exit Giardini Naxos and follow the SS 185 to Gaggi. In Gaggi turn right into Via Roma. After ca. 100m just in front of the turn you will see the white house number 39.

Quiet and central situation and a fantastic view from a large roof terrace

Casa Mongibello in GaggiThe nice external does not yet give any clue to the roominess and the many tiny extras in this holiday flat. We talked to the daughter of the German owner and she told us that her father built this 4-storey-house with a lot of heart`s blood for meetings with the whole family. And that is obvious.

Entering the house by the front door on the ground floor the garage is on your right. In a large store room a rubber boat and a beer garden table with wooden benches are available.

Straight ahead stairs lead to the holiday flat Mongibello I on the first floor. The entire flat as well as the entire house is tiled and very well looked after. The large kitchen-cum-living room is equipped at best and offers everything to produce Mediterranean flavours.

From the living room you enter the balcony with view to the lanes of Gaggi and with blue sky to the Etna. A sofa bed, air condition, a radio with CD player and TV are at your disposal.  Here you will find the first creative and really practical facility. Behind two foldaway doors there is a shaft leading up to the roof terrace. By a basket in this shaft you can enjoy your breakfast upstairs without climbing stairs several times.

By a corridor you reach the first nicely furnished bedroom with double bed, two small bedside tables, a big wardrobe and window.

Moving along the corridor you come to the bathroom equipped with much love and care. In the walls there are three built-in mirrors: on the right, on the left and in front. So the ladies can look at themselves from all sides. 

Two washbasins with floor cupboards, a bidet and a multi functional shower are available. In case you forgot your towel don`t walk out with wet feet. Just ring the bell and get them being brought.

The second furnished bedroom furnished with double bed, wardrobe,  a bedside table, a clothes rail and access to a small and very quiet terrace is a perfect refugium for togetherness.

To the roof terrace on the third floor you pass the second holiday flat Mongibello II. Before you enter it you pass a niche with washing machine, washbasin and a large fridge. On the large roof terrace (70qm) you may enjoy your holiday by a wonderful view. Here a small bathroom with WC, washbasin and shower is installed so you can spend untroubled days on the roof terrace.
