Even better than on the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked this very nice apartment for the end of October for a party of 4. The apartment is very nice with two nice bedrooms with good beds and two bathrooms each very convenient and clean. Nice large living room. A great terrace on which you can have breakfast in the morning sun and a great garden with nice lounge chairs to enjoy the sun during most of the day. There is even a nice outside kitchen with BBQ were we had a nice outdoor evening. Anna & Matteo, the owners and their family who live upstairs have been great hosts and were always available for any question we had and gave fantastic advise to explore the area. At their suggestion we went on a hiking tour to the Etna with a certified guide, Ernesto who did a great job. The location just outside of the center of Acireale is very convenient and from there we made a lot of nice trips in the region. We were very happy and recommend this apartment to everybody!

Casa bella e accogliente, come i proprietari

  • 5 of 5

La casa di Anna e Matteo è stata la cornice perfetta per il nostro soggiorno in questo angolo di Sicilia: pulita, accogliente, grandi spazi arredati con cura e gusto compreso il parco (più che un semplice giardino), cucina accessoriata, biancheria preparata per noi come negli hotel pluristellati. Siamo stati (5 adulti e 4 bambini) davvero coccolati, con consigli preziosi su dove mangiare ottimi arancini, dove fare un bel bagno, quali strade preferire o evitare, etc In ultimo, ma non per bellezza, il giro con la loro barca, che ci ha permesso di tuffarci tra i basalti colonnari di Acireale in loro piacevole compagnia. Grazie da tutte e 3 le famiglie e alla prossima.

Bellissima villa!

  • 5 of 5

Non credevamo di essere ospitati in un appartamento così grande e bello. Nonostante fossimo in 8 ospiti gli spazi sono più che abbondanti. L'arredamento è curato con gusto ed eleganza anche nei minimi particolari. Giardino magnifico e rilassante ed effettivamente non manca niente, compresa zona forno e barbecue. I proprietari sono stati veramente gentili e discreti, disponibili a dispensare consigli su luoghi da visitare e locali per degustazioni.

Se avete intenzione di andare in questa zona di Sicilia non potete non considerare questa magnifica casa. Noi lo consigliamo vivamente!

Saverio di Firenze & amici.

Sehr schöne und großzügige Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne, saubere und großzügige Unterkunft. Wir haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt. Anna und Matteo haben uns, obwohl wir mitten in der Nacht angereist sind, sehr herzlich empfangen und hatten uns sogar noch mit Lebensmitteln und Getränken für die Nacht versorgt (was gar nicht notwendig war, weil Freunde uns am Flughafen erwartet und uns ein care paket mitgegeben hatten. Anna und Matteo standen uns die ganze Zeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und haben uns gute Ausflugstipps gegeben. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Besonders schön ist der Wintergarten. Ein Highlight der Reise war, als Matteo spät abends an die Tür klopfte und uns einlud, von seiner Terrasse aus einen Ätna-Ausbruch anzuschauen und wir (aus sicherer Entfernung) beobachten konnten, wie sich die glühende Lava über den Berg ergoss. Es war ein wunderschöner und eindrucksvoller Urlaub. Wir können die Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Christina und Heiko

uno spettacolo...

  • 5 of 5

Ottima struttura, funzionale, ben attrezzata, curata, pulita, piacevole

sotto ogni punto di vista. Il giardino è una delizia per vista, olfatto

e relax.

Le fotografie del sito non rendono giustizia agli spazi disponibili, più

ampi di quanto sembrino.

Proprietari molto disponibili e premurosi, defilati con discrezione, ma

sempre reperibili e "orientati alla soluzione". Per ogni necessità a due

passi ci sono pratici negozi di vicinato. Anche la posizione ne fa una

comoda base per escursioni.

Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo!

Ausgezeichnete Struktur, gut ausgestattet, sauber, gepflegt zum Wohlfühlen. Der Garten ist eine Augenweide der zum relaxen einläd. Die Fotos der Webseite werden der wirklich großzügigen Räumlichkeiten nicht gerecht.

Die Eigentümer sind hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend ohne aufdringlich zu sein.

In der Nachbarschaft befinden sich mehrere Geschäfte. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge. Ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Acireale, famous for its Baroque, Carnival and other tourist attractions linked to a centuries-old tradition (Opera dei Pupi with almond paste) is a great starting point for excursions to Mount Etna. But there is also the sea. We are in the most beautiful part of the coast of Sicily (between the stacks of Acitrezza and Isola Bella Taormina).

Driving along the old road of Chiazzette that, since Phoenician times, Acireale connects the mouth of the river Aci, you reach the picturesque seaside village of Santa Maria La Scala with a clear water and beautiful backdrops.

In 25 minutes you can reach Catania, Etna and Taormina.

During the day, you can visit Syracuse, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, the mosaics of the Roman villa at Piazza Armerina, the Alcantara Gorges, Messina and, for children, the amusement park and aqua park Etnaland.

In summary ... the 'must' of our region, from the mountains to the sea:

Excursions on the Etna volcano

Zafferana honey tasting and wines of Etna

Palaces and Baroque churches of 1600 in Acireale and Catania

Carnival of Acireale

Puppet Theatre Acireale

Tasting granita and almond paste in Acireale

Fishing villages of the Riviera of the Cyclops

Sea, sea and sea.
