About Casa D'aria

Casa D'aria is Located in the beautiful city center of Catania, this townhouse is just a stone’s throw away from the local market, great restaurants sunny beaches, and Mount Etna.
For the past years, Daria, who is a local architect, has been designing and building a dream property using traditional Sicilian decorating techniques and furniture combined with modern needs and practicality to create a unique experience.

I started the restoration work as an architect thinking of creating a place for sharing different ideas and lifestyles because I believe in the creative capacity of diversity
For this land to become fertile it is necessary to have time and meeting spaces

I had a delightful stay in this cozy, quiet place. They did a fantastic job refurbishing an old central building, maintaining its high ceilings, which gives it a unique charm. The location is just perfect—there are hidden terrace bars behind the building, the center is only three minutes away, and the local market with delicious street food is just a five-minute walk. Plus, parking is conveniently located just seven minutes away.

The lady was nice and helped us find great locations and tourist attractions around the city. She also gave us information on how to travel to other cities. The room wasn't as shown in the pictures; we expected something better. However, we still had a nice stay.

I stayed here for a month and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very beautiful, and the rooftop terrace was a delight. It's conveniently located in Catania, and the people were extremely nice. I would definitely recommend this coliving space!

I had a really pleasant stay here. The rooms and common areas were artistic and different, adding to the charm of the place. The location is perfect, with the metro and attractions only a short walk away.

I had an incredible experience staying here! Francesco was amazing; he helped me with airport transfers multiple times and was incredibly kind. The rest of the staff were also fantastic, showing kindness at every turn. My room was the best I've experienced while in Sicily—it felt like a little suite complete with a kitchenette, which was perfect for cooking my own meals.

I had really high hopes for my stay at this coliving because of the beautiful photos and my communication with the host leading up to the stay, which was very pleasant. When I arrived at the studio apartment, I discovered that I would be sharing the place with another person . I had misunderstood the fine print of the description on coliving.com, so I accepted that as my misunderstanding. However, there were other things that did not match the description. For instance, I was supposed to have access to a kitchenette in the studio apartment, but when I arrived, I was told that I was not allowed to use the hob or the fridge (leaving only the sink) because the hob was placed too close to the wall and would leave burns on the wooden panelling. I was also the only guest in the whole apartment, so to save on electricity I was told to use the staff kitchen. The kitchenette had no appliances, and the staff kitchen was not very clean at all. The host also warned me not to use the air conditioning too much because I would have to pay extra if I exceeded the electricity allowance. When I brought up the differences between the description of the place and reality, giving the kitchenette as an example, the host told me that I could use the hob if I insisted but I would be liable to pay if I left any burn marks, despite the fact that it was a matter of bad construction, according to her own words. All in all, I did not feel comfortable using any of the amenities that had been promised because I was repeatedly warned about using them and penalty fees. Additionally, the coworking area in the apartment was a living room exposed to the elements, with no proper seating or desks and covered in sawdust and scaffolding because, besides the studio I was in, the whole place was under construction, with construction material placed everywhere around the common areas (this might have changed since my stay in March, 2023). The host offered that I could work in the reception area, but with everything adding up, I felt like I was not getting what I had been promised and was paying for. When I raised my concerns with the host to see if I could be compensated somehow (after the coliving's stipulated 24h reporting period), the host was insulting and told me I had to leave the next day, giving me 12h to find alternative accomodation. I don't usually write negative reviews and I like to consider myself a pretty reasonable person (I guess you'll have to take my word for it); I don't want to warn people against this place, because it might have been an isolated occurance and the property description may have been changed to something more accurate by the time I'm writing this. But I have never experienced anything like this before and I always rely on reviews myself, so I wanted to share my story in case it helps anyone make a better informed decision than I was able to. I would probably not recommend this if you're looking for a good place to stay for coliving and coworking, but if you're OK with not using a kitchen and are simply looking for a place to sleep while you explore the area around Catania, this coliving could maybe be an OK alternative.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a month. The location is incredibly central with plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. I absolutely love the style of the place. It's rustic and charming, with the old buildings beautifully preserved. It felt like the host did a great job emphasizing these historical charms.
