Exploring eastern Sicily: The accommodation is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily and the volcano Etna. It is just five kilometres from the highway 10 km from Catania and 15 km from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Santa Maria la Scala and Santa Tecla are pleasant seaside villages near Acireale. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches distances 40 km.

A good place to stay in summer time,

  • 3 of 5
We stayed in the end of october with my husband and my two sons (10 and 13)
Clean
Wonderful garden, quiet, the countryside in town ...
Good place for ETNA, not far from airport
Nice breakfast and dinners althought I found it expensive comparing with the price in the area
Almost no kitchen, just OK to have a drink. Only one bowl. Even difficult to make a proper breakfast, if you are four people staying.
The beds are really small for the children.
There is no heating/air-conditionning in the small room where the children sleep
Not enough hot water for four showers.
The pool seems great but is not usable at that time of the year

Mascalucia is an excellent base from which to explore the eastern part of Sicily. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below! The “Playa”, an endless sandy beach is found 15 km further, south of Catania. Charming fishing villages, such as Aci Trezza and Santa Maria La Scala (Acireale) are also near.

Other Activities: Excursion to volcano Mount Etna, the highest active volcano of Europe
