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.

Modern, spacious and accessable

Lovely accomodation, central to all that the the east coast of Sicily has to offer, plus the huge advantage of being well appointed, very comfortable, modern and right in the heart of 'down town' Acreale. Highly recommended.

Absolutely fantastic.

5 of 5
It has all been said in other reviews but the hospitality of Santa, Tony and Marco cannot be overstated. Our 5 year old twins fell in love with them. Tony's cooking is simply genius, Santa provides,what appears to be, effortless patience and Marco is a mine of local information and good humour. I suspect we'll be back.
