Situated on the coast and brimming with history, what could be better than a holiday at the beautiful city of Acireale in Sicily.

The coastline in Acireale is mainly rocky but holidaymakers can enjoy a spot of fishing with squid and occasionally sea bass caught here. It is possible sunbathe but visitors may prefer to take a relatively easy car journey to the nearby resorts of Taormina and Giardini Naxos, where there are nice beaches to sunbathe on and take a dip in the sea.

There is plenty on offer here for sports enthusiasts including tennis, golf, swimming, snorkelling and cycling. With some wonderful coastal views and Mount Etna not far away, this is also a popular place for hiking and horse riding. A great time to visit Acireale is early February during the season of carnival, which is famous throughout Sicily for its spectacular floats, costumes, and parades.

Another enjoyable trip can be made to Teatro dei Pupi (the Puppet Theatre), which puts on animated shows at the Museo dei Pupi dell’Opra, just off Acireale. The gardens at Villa Belvedere have a panoramic terrace offering wonderful views of Mount Etna and the sea.

Very good

4 of 5
The apartment was very comfortable, had everything we needed and the view from the balcony wonderful. 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.

Rustic farmhouse villa with great views

4 of 5
We liked the villa, especially the huge pool and the views. It was well equipped and we liked the en suite bedrooms, although because the villa was mainly an old building, they were a bit dark. The only thing which would have been nice would be the provision of some form of cushions for the outside benches around the large dining table. We love sitting out day or night but the plain wood benches became uncomfortable after a short while. That apart, we liked the situation of the villa, it was a good base for sightseeing and Tiziana was very helpful. Mike Swann
