                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Firstly I would like to thank Antonio, Marco and Santa who were welcoming, generous, helpful and fun.They live next door and were a shout away if we wanted them, but they never intruded unless we arranged it. If Antonio offers to cook for you, take him up on it.He is an excellent cook sourcing fresh food from Catania market and bringing local snacks and pastries.At the end of the week he added up the cost and I definitely feel he undercharged us. The house conforms to its description. It has a wonderful large bedroom leading out into a courtyard, the rest is spacious except a small. single bedroom, our children slept in the lounge. The house is tucked away in a quiet corner of Acireale, very few cars go by . There is a train line nearby ; the trains are almost all small (2 carriages) and infrequent. None of us were disturbed by them. We were able to park on the street near the house. Our car was in car hire terms a 'compact' This was too big for the fiendishly narrow streets and tight corners of Sicilian towns .Northern European rules do not apply to Sicilian driving but somehow everybody seems to get from A to B without incident. Acireale maintains some of its former elegance but mostly its crumbling like most of southern Italy. There are few tourists and the locals, to us were all friendly and helpful. Visiting Taormina it was a shock to be surrounded by thousands of tourists. The amphitheatre is breathtaking but the town was unbearable. The beach below Taormina is beautiful but you have to keep saying no to people wanting to sell you something. Acireale's local beach, Santa Maria La Scala is a stunning walk but it is more of a slipway for fishermen than something you would lie on. The best beaches we found were south of Catania. I liked Catania, my partner didn't; she was driving. Get the train. Etna calls but it is only worth going up if it is clear You get charged alot of money just to see 10 yards. We (including a 9 and 10 year old walked from the top of the cable car to the highest accessible point, its not challenging. We liked Sicily ; the locals are friendly, quieter than other Italians, there are lots to see and do near to a passable beach and there is chaos.

                                                                                                    The reality somehow outdoes the description. A lavish 3 storey castle overlooking the Ionian Sea.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    Liliana, our septeguanarian host provided the warmest of welcomes and plenty of useful tips for our week long stay. With Liliana living on the ground floor that meant we had the other 2 floors to ourselves (3 if you include the Rapunzel bedroom on the 3rd floor within one of the castle turrets). Liliana allowed us to use her table tennis table and was around to answer myriad questions on anything from the house's history to recommended day trips. Acireale is certainly worth a visit, as is the little sea front village a 10 minute walk down from Acireale's town centre; Santa Maria La Scala. Liliana will also help with booking various nearby attractions including tours to Mount Etna; an absolute must, though the guided walk at 2,900 metres up made me feel a little light headed in the slightly rarified air. Much of the furniture dates back to the Art Nouveau period with ancestral and recent family photographs adorning the walls. The beds and linen were comfortable and crisp and the kitchen was kitted out with all the equipment you could wish for. Liliana was kind enough to have a bottle of red wine and a scrumptious home made cake for our arrival. The first floor terrace was a wonderful gathering area for breakfasts and suppers, and to while away the hours reading and chatting. The swimming pool has clear, mineral filled water from a well and is larger than most at 18 metres ( we estimated). The small village of Stazzo has an excellent butcher, 2 mini markets, a pleasant bar for an early evening drink (with snacks) and also a good pizzeria behind the slipway. There is a small black sand beach and a number of bathing decks with steps into the sea from the rocks. Some of these are private and some are public. We would suggest you hire a car as most attractions are a drive away. If it is a family holiday you may want to bring some games with you. This was a 6 person family holiday and we were there to celebrate a family milestone. There could have been no more luxurious base for us than Castello Claves. And Liliana is a delight. Not least because, along with her helpfulness, warmth and humour, she left us to our own devices. We have no hesitation in recommending Castello Claves. And Owners Direct for making the whole process as straightforward as possible. Kind regards Hilary and Barney.

Lorenzo, the keyholder, came to meet us upon our arrival and was very helpful, despite the fact that he has very little English and we have no Italian. He very generously gave us 2 bottles of wine as a welcome gift. The terrace is really big and the views from it are amazing. In one direction you look out over the sea and in the other you have fantastic views of Mount Etna. Other travellers in the past have said that there was nowhere to sit on the terrace but that has now been rectified and there is now a table & 4 chairs and 2 sunbeds which was great. The apartment is well equipped, and has excellent air conditioning in the bedroom. There was 11 large dinner plates and 11 side plates but no breakfast bowls!? Our only niggle with the property is that it could have been cleaned a bit better. The shower enclosure was rather dirty and had black mould in it and one of the doors didn't close properly and there was scum left in the bottom of the toothbrush mug. There was also a lot of dust & hair down beside the bedside lockers. The town itself is small but has everything you would need. Great fish restaurants and pizzerias. It also has a small shop/deli for all your everyday needs. The people are really lovely but I would suggest brushing up on your Italian beforehand as there is very little English spoken there, which for us added to it's attractiveness. I would definitely recommend Casa Scirrocco to my friends and family.
