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.

It was perfect, we spent everyday swimming off of the rocks right across the street. The listing description is accurate, I honestly think the place in person is even more amazing! The property was very clean and well-maintained. The hosts available on the property were super sweet and accommodating as well as the manager and contacts. The on-site hosts even offered to let our friends park on the premises for the day. It is very close to Mythos, a bar, that according to our kids has the best gelato and granitas in Aci Trezza. If we get to return to Sicily we will stay here again!

The apartment is almost exactly as described and the accommodation is faultless. Why almost? The loungers in the photo were not present, although a pair of reclining chairs were. The terrace faces east and is a delightful location for breakfast watching the sun reflected in the sea from the shade of the umbrella. We were there in a heat wave, so it may not be typical, but we were driven indoors by the sun after mid morning, but we could emerge again in mid afternoon when the terrace is in shade. Sun lovers can move to the roof if they wish, its in sun all day long. The air con is only in the living room, but with the bedroom door open and a fan in operation the bedroom was never too hot. It's difficult to be sure, but the area appeared to be a mix of holiday apartments and permanent residential. The neighbours were entirely Italian. We never walked into town, too hot, but it is a very short drive and parking is ridiculously cheap. Thoroughly recommended.
