Aci Trezza has a long maritime history and is now a lively holiday town running down the hillside to the Ionian coast, 7 miles (13km) north of Catania. In the distance, Mount Etna looms, surrounded by the national park.

                                                                                                      We received a warm welcome from Clelia when we arrived at the apartment as well as a welcome pack including water, beer, fruit and chocolate cake! We were 2 couples sharing the 3 bed, 2 bathroom apartment. There was also ample parking for our 2 cars as there was a garage and on street parking in the private, gated complex. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms with toilet & shower facilities so we had our own space. The apartment was very spacious, comfortable and homely with some nice personal touches and local craft work. There was plenty of lovely crockery and glasses and pots and pans etc so we could prepare more than a cold spread. It was also nice to have store cupboard ingredients available, olive oil etc, so we didn't have to stock up on things we'd not use, but we also left things for the next person to use, pay it forward! The outside areas had lovely views across the village to the sea and from the front you could see the Castle at Aci Castello and the bigger ships beyond. It was especially nice in the evenings as the sunset illuminated the tiled roof tops. Very relaxing with a glass in your hand! We ate all our meals out here and used the fresh herbs growing in the stunning border. Clelia also gave us advice on trips and places to eat etc, these were all great recommendations. She also let us know she was available to message if we had any problems or questions. Location suited us as it was a short stroll to the village and seafront but in a quiet neighbourhood. There is a very steep climb for the last couple of minutes back up to the apartment but this was a small price to pay for the views and location. It was well positioned for our trips to Etna, Taormina, Enna and Catania and an pleasant trip along the coast up from our previous night in Siracusa. There was a large supermarket on the road into Catania, about 5 km away, or provisions available in the village. Aci Terezza was a bustling seaside resort with a good choice of places to eat, drink and people watch. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment and it's friendly, welcoming host!

When you look at pictures of your vacation destination you can't allways be sure if it really looks as shown. But this time it was even better then on the pictures - the villa is elegant, spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and in a beautiful setting. There are two double bedrooms, and a big salon with a seaview. The kitchen is small but fully equiped - there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us! The outside space is fantastic, with lovely views. Due to the weather (it was rather cold) we did not use the terrace in front of the villa but it must be a great experience during the warmer months. Aci Trezza was quite quiet at this time of year, but there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. And it is a good base for longer trips (Catania, Etna, Taormina etc.). All in all we enjoyed a very relaxing stay and will certainly be returning.
