Perhaps one more deck chair so we didn't have to fight over the only one would have been nice. There was very much an end-of season feel to Stazzo which actually we enjoyed as most of the surrounding apartments were empty. We found no one spoke English (even in the Tourists Information in Acireale so, as we hadn't hired a car, we had great difficulty finding out about trains and buses. So the agent Francesca (who we could text in English)and her father Salvatore were an absolute godsend. Salvatore met us at the airport and also took us to Etna, a wonderful trip as he was so enthusiatic and knowledgable about the area. Francesca also arranged us taxis, which we would have found impossible. On the whole it was a quiet but good stay.

The apartment satisfied most of our requirements well, the lounge area is spacious and comfortable. The dining table is large enough for 6 people at least. The kitchen is a good size with large gas cooker, dishwasher and plenty of pots and pans. The bathroom is adequate, the shower enclosure is on the small side, one of the sliding doors jammed when closing. The bedroom is a sectioned off area at the rear of the apartment with no doors, so could be a problem if more than 2 people stay in the apartment. We did not use the swimming pool during our stay, so cannot make any comment about it.
