About Nina Schuttert / Giulia Tiriticco / Kirsten Eijkelenboom / Giulia Lattanzio
We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.
Check-in: 4:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
Try to be on time for your check-in (which is usually set at 4 PM) and please send a text message to the keyholder in case of delay.
A stay tax of 1 Euro p.p. (except children up 17 years old) per night is due at your arrival directly to the keyholder.
Please do not leave unwashed dishes upon departure and dispose of your waste daily according to the municipality rules that you will find in the villa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
All members of our group enjoyed the privacy and elegance of Castello Claves. The location was perfect for exploring Mt. Etna, Taormina and Catania. Views from the towers are spectacular! Short, easy walk to the water and small eateries. We loved hearing the church bells & roosters : ) Our on-site host Liliana was very kind and helpful with any requests we made. She recommended a local private chef (Bruno Trovato) who escorted us on a tour of local markets and prepared an amazing dinner for us with the super fresh items we chose. It was everyone's favorite meal of the trip.
THE most magical place!
We are a 5 adults and 3 children party who have just returned from Castello Claves. I cannot recommend this place enough, it is as stunning on the outside as it is on the inside, full of history and architecturally beautiful.
Lilliana was so welcoming and generous with her time, arranging for us to dine locally at some lovely restaurants and helping to book taxis when needed. We literally didn't want to leave!
The area is beautiful, non touristy and a car is recommended but you can get to local amenities by foot. We will be returning for sure!
Fabulous place to stay. We holidayedw it’s our four sons and partners. plenty of room..the pool was brilliant and very welcom e in the heat. Nice to walk down into the village.usedthe shop frequently. The restaurant at the bottom of the road was a disappointment. Lovely to look at all the photos and furniture in the castle. Liliana was lovely and very helpful.
A very special vaccation
We were 6 persons together on vaccation and this was everything we expected and more. We stayed there from 27 May - 6 June and it was wonderful. The castle, the furnitures, the decorations, the garden, the swimming pool is all so special. Our hostess, Lillian, is a warm friendly person. She is very helpful and gave us useful tips about everything. She arranged for us a trip to Etna with a marvellous guide (she knows everyone) :-). This is a excellent place for family vaccation or with few friends but having a car is a must. We take with us many good memories from our stay in the castle. Thank you Lillian :-)
From our first meeting with Lilliana, the property owner who resides on the first floor, to the day we departed, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and were able to relax in the beautiful setting she's created. The gardens and grounds are lovely and the interior has everything you need. We were there for a wedding and had rented a car for the week so that allowed us to visit other towns in Sicily. Because there is not a great deal to do in Stazzo, I would just be mindful of needing either a driver or a car. We did enjoy walking to the Blue Bar, which is a two minute walk down to the sea, every morning for coffee and croissants which were awesome. For a group that wants to have a place to relax and unwind, this is the perfect spot. The pool area is perfect for doing just that and the views from the numerous terraces in the house are amazing. You will not be disappointed if you make this villa your home while visiting this beautiful island.
Exceptional, Historic Property
We were a group of 7 mature adults. Our stay was magical from the moment the gates opened and we met the welcoming owner. The grounds and accommodations are beautiful, well maintained and exactly as pictured. We loved looking at Mt. Etna, the sea and all the historical items within the home. We had a van and took day trips. We loved every moment and highly recommend this magnificent property, if you are fortunate to find availability. It truly was an exceptional holiday. Many thanks for sharing your amazing time capsule with us!!
Stazzo is a village that thrives on fishing during winter and on tourism during summer. There are two marinas and several restaurants. In the nearby villages of Santa Tecla and Santa Maria La Scala there are excellent seafood restaurants. Taormina and Giardini Naxos are about 25 km further away.
From Stazzo it will be easy to visit Mount Etna, the highest active volcano of Europe, as well as beautiful towns such us Taormina and Siracusa.
