When you look at pictures of your vacation destination you can't allways be sure if it really looks as shown. But this time it was even better then on the pictures - the villa is elegant, spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and in a beautiful setting. There are two double bedrooms, and a big salon with a seaview. The kitchen is small but fully equiped - there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us! The outside space is fantastic, with lovely views. Due to the weather (it was rather cold) we did not use the terrace in front of the villa but it must be a great experience during the warmer months. Aci Trezza was quite quiet at this time of year, but there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. And it is a good base for longer trips (Catania, Etna, Taormina etc.). All in all we enjoyed a very relaxing stay and will certainly be returning.

They left us a bottle of wine and even recommended somewhere to go out for New Years Eve. We were two families - 4 adults, 5 children - so the size of the villa was just about right. Everyone had a bed, and the smallest was on a fold out sofa bed. Major plus points were the pool and the basement level games room with a pool table and pinball machine. The kitchen was also large, but we struggled to get 9 people around the table. It was also a little under equipped if you wanted to cook at home, but a relatively minor point. Spectacular views of Etna every morning were certainly uplifting for the soul, and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year (28 Dec to 4 Jan) with highs of 17 deg and lots of dry weather and sun. The only downsides for the adults were that the beds were in need of an upgrade - new mattresses would sort this easily. Overall, loved the place and the location and can recommend it with a clear conscience.

                                                                                                      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.
