A Breathtaking Sea View And A Private Access To The Sea

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,291 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, just 20meters far from the sea

A luxury Nineteenth-Century villa with exclusive inside spaces, a delightful English lawn, a breathtaking sea view and a private access to the sea. In the charming marine village of Torre Archirafi, near the Baroque city of Catania.

The apartment, on the ground floor of the villa, can accommodate up to 4 guests, within a comfortable and wide space (120 sqm). Privacy is preserved and the apartment shares just the entrance and the parking with the upper floor. The recent renovation has magnified the Sicilian charm of the villa - majolica tiles, terracotta pavements, vast and bright spaces, ancient and very refined furniture – offering, anyway, all the modern comforts.

Outside, the view is just spectacular. A pergola, pleasantly furnished with outdoor furniture, will be the ideal start of your day: staring at the beautiful colours of the sea, just in front of you. There is also a BBQ area where enjoy the fresh products of the fish markets nearby, as well as the sunbathing area of the gracious English lawn: the panorama here is really stunning, especially with the endless shades of the colours at dawn and at dusk. And then, just turning your head, the superb Mt. Etna, the active volcano, declared UNESCO world heritage, with the green forests of the Etna Park.

Inside, the living area with ancient vaults, elegant pavements and exposed-stone walls. Spaces are wide and bright. Dining room is elegantly furnished with tasteful antique chairs, table and cupboard. The kitchen, fully equipped, is enriched by Sicilian majolica, and bedrooms are warm and spacious. Then the pergola attached to Living room and Kitchen.

A private wooden platform grants the direct access to the transparent blue sea.

Everything you need – markets, restaurants and so on – is just 200 meters far in the lovely hamlet of Torre Archirafi.

A generous host in a beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

Enrico was the most welcoming host one could imagine, with wine, fruit and warm arancini waiting for us on arrival. The house is exactly as described, with a super aspect over the sea, and a covered loggia for eating and relaxing out of the sun. We only had one regret, that we had only booked for 4 days! Enrico was helpful with suggestions for trips, and with restaurants - we went to the top of Etna, and to Taormina, and had one day just chilling out. Thanks, Enrico!

A wonderful property with great views of the sea and coast.

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples visiting Sicily for the first time.

Enrico was the perfect host and quite clearly wanted us to enjoy our stay.

He was very helpful when we arrived showing us where the supermarket was in Riposto and some of the restaurants in the area.

The property was wonderful and a perfect size for two couples. It was a privilege to stay in Enrico's lovely home and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others

your own island , relaxing, adventure. great time, great Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

its the perfect place to explore Sicily from different views. We started our Tours to the Etna on the Island for Hiking Tours, to Taormina in the North for Hiking and Sightseeing, to the very close Beaches from Risposto facing North, and to the Sand Beaches in the South incl. Ortigia the beautiful Part of Syracuse with a beautiful Sundowner.

The Apartment is very clean, cozy and full of Style. You can watch the Sunset every morning if you want. I used the barbecue every night to grill fresh fish from the Fish Market in Risposto.

Enrico is amazing. Very kind and helpful. Gave me all important advices. He is very organised. Also a nice welcome Drink and Food. We had some Pizza before, but that was not necessary.

The entrance to the water directly in front of the Apt is nothing for elderly People ... but no prob for us. Also the close Beaches are all "Stone" Beaches. If you need Sand you have to move more to the south.

You can do your morning Jog directly on the coast but its very hot in the summer. I suggest to choose some of the Erna Hikes. Its great for the Legs and the nature is Amazing.

My Favourite Hikes so far ... ( we only had 4 Days) ... Taormina Hike to the Mount Veneretta ... Etna Hike to the Mount Zoccolaro (be careful in the Winter !! ... suddenly its getting stormy and cloudy ... its snowy there) and the Coast of Maddalena to the white Beaches and a nice eve in Ortigia.

You definitely need a Car!!

We had a short but great time.

Sizilien Pur

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt ein wenig versteckt, jedoch wenn das Tor aufgeht findet man ein wunderschönes Anwesen. Der Vermieter begrüßt einen herzlich und kümmert sich bei der Spätanreise auch um das leibliche Wohl seiner Gäste. Es ist ein wunderschönes Sizilianisches Anwesen mit einem herrlichen Blich auf das Mittelmeer. Es hat uns in der Wohnung und auf dem Anwesen an nichts gefehlt. Von dort aus ist die Insel gut zu erkunden. Der Ort selber bietet nicht viel außer einer Cafebar und Pizzeria, aber man ist schnell in Riposto wo es alles gibt. Besonders die Sizilianischen Weine darf ich hier erwähnen. Ein toller Urlaub bei Enrico. Gerne wieder und ohne Einschränkung empfehlenswert

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Sea Terrace is a dream vacation home in the storybook seaside town of Torri Archirafi. Wake up to the sunrise over the Ionian Sea and spend the evenings drinking wine watching the moon rise and listening to the waves. The house is large with lots of outside space for relaxing. Enrico, the owner, lives upstairs and is an excellent host. You have the place to yourself but he is on call if needed. A car is necessary if you want to experience the larger towns of Riposto (1 mile away) and Giarre (2 miles away). Giarre has great shopping on Via Corso Italia and the train station. Riposto (just a little further down Via Corso Italia, closer to the sea) has great places to eat. Taormina is only about 40 minutes drive via the Autostrada in Giarre and the city of Catania is only a 30 minute ride on the dirretto train from Giarre. The house is only 200 meters from two places to eat, drink and get gelato as you watch the locals relax in the small park. Perfect Sicilian beach town.

Torre Archirafi is a pleasant quiet marine hamlet that enjoys a very privileged position: the scene, here, is magnificent and vast: from the impressive Volcano Etna to the sophisticated and celebrated town of Taormina. During the night, you’ll perceive little lights in the middle of the sea – the so-called “lampare” of fishing boats. Here, you’ll find charming fish markets as well as high-quality fish restaurants serving the freshest ingredients around.

Along three kilometres, on the enchanted coastal road, you reach the city of Riposto, with a touristy port that offers daily boat trips in the Mediterranean sea. The enchanting Taormina is just 20 kilometres far, and the Park of Etna is just 17 kilometres away.
