Dimora De Mauro
At the foot of Mount Etna, opposite the Mediterranean Sea, a lava stone treasure trove encloses the spirit of one of Catania’s most ancient districts, with its heritage of ancient tales and the traces of many lives –the elegant and noble people, as well as the animated and vivid crowd – that crossed this place.
The apartments of Dimora De Mauro, built all around the courtyard, have been perfectly restored and have been owned by our family for more than a century.
In the wide frescoed halls of the noble floors of the mansion, with its stucco, ancient furniture and mirrors, in the terraces overlooking the old town and even in the apartments once housing the industrious craftsmen workshops, each detail reveals the story of five generations with their passion and their work.
We have been used to the grey colour of the Etnean basalt, coming from thousand-year lava, since we were children: that’s why we preserved this colour on the cross vaults and on the flagstone flooring, when we decided to bring back to light and life these rooms, which once were the setting of the history of our family and now accommodate our guests.
We have kept our traditions and our familiar warmth but decided to open our “town inside the town” out to the world.
Just outside the walls of our Dimora, you will find yourself in the heart of Catania, where visitors will discover its wonders: from the archaeological sites to the museums, from the evocative traces of the Greek and Roman civilisations to the impressive view of late baroque buildings listed among the Unesco World Heritage Sites; from the noisy fish market, the visitors can walk down to the promenade and Acitrezza village, or they can walk up and fall in love with the powerful pulse of Mount Etna, getting lost in its woods, its vineyards, its lava flow.
With our 14 comfortable apartments, well-equipped also for long stays, our 2 Suites with ancient furniture and our halls and terraces hosting events, we mean to offer the experience of a journey which is a vertical exploration of a fragment of Sicily, with its story of never-ending evolution.
