We are two couple of boys, we were returning from a bad experience at acireale and found this apartment on the web. The apartment we stayed in is located on the ground floor of a villa just outside of Acireale and a short distance from the sea overlooking a landscaped garden that you can use (there is also a barbecue that you can use) and the apartment consists of a living room with fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms (one is in the open space where there is also a kitchen but it is quite separeted). The owners live on the first floor of the villa and are lovely people. The breakfast (on request) is abundant and is served at the time best suited to customers. I would stay here certainly !!! Recommended !! Elena Nunziato (Naples, Italy)

"Maison très bien située pour les visites, agréable, calme et sécurisée. Joli jardin bien entretenu. Simone est très accueillant, toujours prêt à rendre service. Séjour très agréable."Marie-Thérèse Pajot (France)

Appartement très agréable, propriétaire discret et gentil, un jardin parfait pour nos 3 enfants assez turbulents, une situation géographique fort pratique car à proximité de l'autoroute Catania-Taormina, des plages, et surtout de l'Etna. Une bonne adresse. juliette desportes (France)

ringraziamo ancora moltissimo per l'ospitalità. Siamo stati benissimo...peccato non potersi fermare di più! Ancora complimenti per la casa: ci è piaciuta molto. E poi in una posizione tattica per muoversi su Etna, Acireale, Catania e Taormina. Grazie ancora .. di sicuro segnaleremo il tuo contatto ai nostri amici. Un caro saluto da tutto il gruppo.Chiara Venier Vicenza ITA

"Nous avons passé une semaine très plaisante chez Simone l'appartement est irréprochable, très propre adapté pour une famille de 5, et la vue le soir depuis le jardin, sur les coulées de lave de l'Etna, magnifique ! Si il manque quelques ustensiles de cuisine ou autre chose Simon l'apporte sans problèmes. ses conseils sur les excursions (Etna ou Catania) sont judicieux. N'hésitez pas à prendre le train à 300m pour aller à Cataniaྴ min seulement)et ne manquez pas le marché aux poissons ! La plage à Fiumefredda est parfaite et à 15 min en voiture direction Taormina. Le Stromboli de nuit est possible de Milazzo départ 12h retour 23h(compter 1h de voiture pour atteindre le quai et prévoir le parking public carte à 5 euros) Enfin la gentillesse de Simon et le pain frais tous les matins complètent le plaisir de résider dans cette partie du village pittoresque au coeur de la véritable Sicile,ideal pour aller vers Syracuse, Enna, Catania, Messina, et Taormina san oublier l'Etna ! "Nicolas & Florence MenthaGeneve Suisse

"Una villetta molto carina, pulitissima e arredata con gusto. Giardino splendido da cui si vede L'Etna. Alloggio e attrezzature buone. Proprietari squisiti. Il paese dove è ubicato la casa non è niente di speciale, ma è in un punto strategico per raggiungere in poco tempo luoghi di grande interesse. La casa è una vera "chicca", ci siamo stati benissimo e vorremmo tornarci."Giovanni Capialbi FI

"Posizione straordinaria, posto tranquillo e a metà strada tra le località più belle della costa orientale della Sicilia. L'alloggio è molto confortevole, accogliente, isolato dall'esterno e dotato di un giardino che crea una cornice stupenda.
