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.

The property is a five minute walk to a small fishing village and an excellent based for exploring the delights of eastern Sicily. We found the property to be well equipped and perfect for a couple. The aspect of the property provides sunshine until the afternoon and is then shaded and this, together with the property being air conditioned, was most welcome relief from the heat. The village provides a large choice of dining options as well as local bakers and grocers and there is a large supermarket around 10 minutes drive north of the village. The owners are charming, hospitable and helpful and added to our holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
