The owner was very communicative and helpful for our stay. He also spoke very good English. We enjoyed our stay.
The property is in a gated community and is quiet, with off-street parking if desired. Air conditioning in the bedrooms is a boon in hotter weather. There were thoughtful touches about the property such as providing a bicycle and beach towels.
The immediate area of the property has some convenient shops and restaurants. There isn't so much to do in Torre Archirafi or nearby Riposto. The shoreline tends to be rocky, though there are pebble beaches in the Riposto area.
However, if you have a car (or are willing to try the buses) then the property is well located for exploring Eastern Sicily. With at most 1.5 hours driving it's possible to cover interesting areas such as Etna, Messina, Naxos, Catania, Siracusa, Noto, Linguaglossa and Alcantara.
Have just returned from Sicily, staying in this great apartment with views of the sea from the terrace! On the 4th floor, there is a lift to floor 3 & 21 steps to floor 4. The steps are shallow & easily managed! The apartment has sloping ceilings & for the first time in my life, I was at risk of bumping my head! Having said that, it added to the charm of the place!! The apartment was well equipped & thank goodness had air conditioning, which was vital with the wonderful weather we had! Great base to visit Mt Etna, Taormina, Siracusa & Ortigio. More locally Aci Trezza is worth a visit! The owner is extremely helpful & kept in contact with us throughout the 2 weeks & was easily contactable if there were any queries. Having a designated parking space was also great, no having to search for a place on return from a day out! Enjoyed this 'home from home'!!
