Overview

Overview

Acireale Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 terraces and direct access to the sea

Casa Agata is an apartment with a huge terrace and a fantastic view of the coast. You can see Taormina and also Calabria in the distance. The apartment is located on the first and upper floor of a villa on the waterfront. There is a path that leads directly from the property to the lava rocks. In summer (June 15 to September 15) stairs are built on the lava rocks making it easy to plunge in the sea. The house is situated at the end of a street with front sea houses and at 500 meters from the center of Pozzillo, a small fishing village that has a harbor where fishermen still tear up daily their colorful boats onto the black lava beach. Nearby is a grocery store which sells bread, fish and fresh eggs. The house has a living room with open kitchen and dining table. Thanks to a big window the sea is clearly present in the living room. Furthermore, a double room and a bathroom with shower. Stairs lead to the upper floor with a twin room and terrace with view on the volcano Etna.

Please note that the stairs that lead to the upper floor might be too steep for elderly people.

Absolutely perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
Bird song, from the lush planting, greeted us as we parked behind the secure gates at Casa Agata. We loved it instantly.
On entering the airy, well appointed apartment, we were drawn to the big arch open doorway framing the blue sea just beyond. Standing on the spacious terrace we blinked to take in the surrounding blue and the dreamy distant headlands. From the roof terrace Mount Etna was tantalisingly close; watching it’s dramatic mood changes over the week was fascinating. The rhythmic lapping water on the lava rocks was relaxing; we didn’t rush anywhere that week!
Casa Agata is on the edge of a fishing village with no tourist trappings in sight. The local shop is surprisingly well stocked and nearby villages have bakers, butchers and greengrocers. Acireale is a gorgeous undiscovered gem of a city with sea vistas, baroque architecture and nooks and crannies to explore.
Just when we thought we were the only visitors in Sicily, we drove along to Toarmina. Crowded and lively, Taormina is stunningly beautiful with restaurants and gift shops galore, but it was great to return to the haven of Casa Agata.

An excellent apartment with amazing sea views.

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend this property. It has direct access to wonderful rocky coves which means that you can swim away from the crowds. The apartment has everything that you need, is bright and airy with two terraces for enjoying sea views and watching Mount Etna smoke. It was quiet and peaceful and has secure gated parking and friendly neighbours. A good location from which to visit Etna, Acireale, Aci Castello, Taormina and Gardin Naxos, all of which are worth exploring. The owners were helpful and informative and we would definitely stay here again. Pozzillo itself is a small fishing working fishing village with Italian owned holiday homes- not a tourist destination but we found that a bonus.

The apartment was just as described and the owners went out of their way to meet and greet and show us everything. The wine and fruit was a lovely touch to welcome us. We loved the views from the terrace and that we could eat outside every day.

Once you have your 'rock climbing legs' getting to the beach across the volcanic rocks is no problem. The locals have done their best to make easier access into the water.

It's an easy spot for visiting local sights like Etna and Taomina. If a local restaurant is important to you to be able to walk to, then there is only the little bar in town which serves Pizzas in the evening, but that's it. We very much enjoyed Casa Agata and would recommend it to anyone who is considering this area.

Casa Agata - Pozzillo,Sicily

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 2 weeks at Casa Agata and it was lovely. The apt. is modern, pretty and very clean and the position is superb. A large terrace overlooks the sea with beautiful views to Taormina and Southern Italy. At night the sky is unbelievable, filled with stars and we saw a dramatic lightening storm on Etna. The sea has tiny fishing boats gliding across the view early morning and late into the evening. Pozzillo is very quiet but there is a small shop nearby for basics, a larger one half a mile away and a good supermarket in Acireale (20 minutes drive) which has anything you need. A car is necessary to explore. We visited Palermo, Agrigento, Syracuse, Noto, Etna and Taormina. Savoca, high in the mountains was a favourite experience with panoramic views and an unusual catacomb worth a visit. Sicily and its people are very friendly and the island is full of history. Travel is easy by car, there is only one autostrada running down the centre of the island with trunk roads running off. The towns are busy so we usually parked on the outskirts and walked in but the countryside in the centre of Sicily is beautiful with high mountains to the south and is almost empty of traffic. Roads are good and there are Autogrills along the major roads, these are clean and friendly with quick service. Food is good and coffee excellent. The owners of the apt. were nice and helpful, we would love to visit again.

Romatik pur

  • 4 of 5
Wir wurden von den Vermietern sehr herzlich empfangen. Die Wohnung war sauber und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sodaß man sich auch bei schlechten Wetter wohlfühlt. Herrausragend war das die Küche kpl. bestückt war und selbst ein Nußknacker, oder Kinderbesteck usw. vorhanden war. Das haben wir noch nie erlebt. Die Panoramalage ist atemberaumend. Es war kein Auto oder Hundegebell zu hören -nur Meeresrauschen-. Leider konnten wir an diesem Küstenabschnitt nicht gefahrlos ins Meer gelangen. Ab Riposta gibt es aber einen langen Kieselsandstrand. Das war der einzige Nachteil. Die Wohnung ist für Leute die die Ostküste mit ihren Altertümer besuchen wollen und auf schicke Restaurants etc. im Ort verzichten können geeignet. Auch muß man sich in Sizilien auf Müllberge und herrunter gekommende Häuser einstellen. Trotzdem ein gelungener Urlaub der mit dieser tollen Wohnung nicht so gewesen wäre.

Meeresrauschen

  • 5 of 5
Die Lage direkt am Meer ist traumhaft, das Meeresrauschen allgegenwärtig. Die Wohnung ist hell, großzügig und sauber, die Vermieter sehr nett, die Nachbarschaft angenehm. Von Pozillo aus - dort selbst ist nicht viel los, deshalb ist ein Mietwagen unerlässlich - lässt sich der Ostteil Siziliens gut erschließen. Ausflüge zum Ätna sollte niemand verpassen, da dies wirlklich ein besonderes Erlebnis ist. Daneben empfehlen wir vor allem einen Ausflug nach Syrakus (Siracusa). Wir können die Wohnung - und Sizilien sowie die Reisezeit (Oktober) - uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Pozzillo is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The quaint fishing village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just five kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 25 kilometres from Pozzillo. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Pozzillo. Traveling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.
