The house is really recommendable, extremly well equipped, marvelous view to the sea and the lady of the house doing her best to take care of her guests. In the surroundings you find all you need except internet point. (Walking distance 2,5 km) I recommend to rent a car. There is an excellent parking place just stairs down from the flat.

It is always difficult to make judgements on places when you only see them on the web. The apartment interested me becasue of the seaside location and the information provided was very tempting. We were not disappointed. In fact it was far better than we dared hope. This is the perfect holiday venue for two people, friends or partners. The apartment is exquisite - so beautifully decorated and with wonderful large rooms and high ceilings. There is plenty of space, and storage space. The terrace overlooking the sea has the most fantastic views and there is more than large enough for two poeople to lie on the loungers and there is a table big enough to invite friends for lunch or supper. My partner commented that there was everything in the apartment one could ask for or need. This I think is due to the thoughtful attentiveness of the delightful owners (as are the beautiful design and furnishings). At night the loudest sound was the ticking of the clock. I can imagine that in the heat of summer the apartment would be beautiful and cool. The owner met us at the autostrada exit and escorted us to the apartment, showed us where to park (or more importantly where not to) and ensured that there were all the essentials there for us (wine, cheese, fantastic olive oil, salad, fruit, bread, eggs etc.). Maps, restaurant information, and even guide books were also provided. We felt we had come to stay with out very best friends. My only word of caution is that if you were very large you might not fit through the sliding door to the shower! Definitely made for petite Italians! Aci Castello has some nice restaurants and it is a pleasant if not longish stroll to Aci Trezza where there are many more. Seafood abounds and the food in every place we tried was just fantastic. We will be back!

This is a really beautiful apartment which has been lovingly restored and is located within the historical area of Aci Castello. It is comfortable, very well furnished, and quiet. There is an attractive terrace on which one can laze in the sun, enjoy a meal, or look down on the activity on Aci Castello Beach. It is very well located, being almost next to the Castle and historical centre of the small town; also within easy walking distance of the beach, small shops, and several good restaurants. Aci Castello is a good touring base, being within easy travelling distance of Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Caltagirone, Piazza Armerina, and (of course) Catania. The owner speaks English well, was very hospitable, and gave extremely helpful suggestions to help us enjoy our stay. Our only wish would have been for a longer holiday
