Ottima Accoglienza !

  • 5 of 5

Arrivati ad Aci Castello, paesino vicino a Catania ben collegato con i mezzi pubblici, abbiamo raggiunto l'appartamento a pochi passi dal castello normanno. Siamo stati accolti dal proprietario che, con discrezione e gentilezza, ha saputo garantirci un appartamento accogliente, ben fornito e curato in ogni dettaglio.

Consigliato assolutamente!

Schönes kleines Appartment mit allem was man brauchtin der Nähe vom Meer. Für 2 Personen ideal. Grosse Terasse (das Meer sieht man leider nicht). Gute Pizzeria (Jonica) in Sichtweite. Vermieter sehr nett und zuvorkommend (allerdings sollte man etwas englisch sprechen!)

Insgesamt war es seht gut!

Nice small appartment with all necessities near the sea. Ideal for 2. Big terrace (unfortunately you cannot see the sea from there). Good place to get pizza not far away. The landlord is very nice and helpful.

We had a great time!

Splendida mansarda

  • 5 of 5

Durante la prima settimana di Agosto ad Aci Castello abbiamo soggiornato in questa graziosissima mansarda, posta a due passi dal Castello Normanno e dal lungomare. L'ambiente è veramente confortevole, pulito e completo di ogni accessorio, ideale per coppie o single, in cerca di un posto tranquillo e come punto di partenza per raggiungere agevolmente tutte le località sulla costa Ionica.

Il proprietario Rosario, come del resto la gran parte dei siciliani che abbiamo avuto il piacere di conoscere, è una persona seria, premurosa e molto disponibile.
