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.

I wish I had booked for 2 weeks so we could have explored but really we didn't feel the need to move from this tranquil place. Liliana was a really lovely lady, next time we will ask her to join us and cook for us and tell us all about the history of this beautiful castle at leisure whilst drinking the tasty mount etna wine 🍷 We purchased from the local shop. We loved that there where no shops just a beautiful harbour with a chilled cafe to sit and watch the boats!!! Oh I wish I was back there right now. Thank you so much Liliana for allowing us to stay in your home xx
