Self Catering Sicily is a Tourism network which I founded becasue, as traveller, I would like to help other traveller to make them to feel at home when they rent an holiday house. Part of the network are the owners of the house that I propose, who I know personally. My agency creates connection between good houses, good services and good guests. All this makes a good marketing.
I select and inspect houses in Catania and the whole Sicily, offering support and suggestions at guests.
I work directly in Catania center and i'm trying to expand my businnes in the whole Sicily.
