Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday apartment in Acireale

This apartment is located in a beautiful unique position in the volcanic coast of Acireale (Pozzillo village). The fishing village is placed in the eastern slope of Etna Vulcan; the flat offers the possibility of staying for the lovers of the sea, as well as for those people want to enjoy Sicilian beauty. The flat is in fact closed to the most important tourist (e.g. Taormina), naturalistic (e.g.: Etna park) and archaeological locations (e.g.: Syracuse). The apartment consists of one bed room with double bed, one small bed room with bunk bed, one living room with one divan bed, one kitchen; two toilets. A big terrace with beautiful view (where you watch the sun rise over the sea), which is provided with an external barbecue is ideal for outdoor eating. Compared to other rental opportunities in the area, this apartment is exclusive because located (Latitude 37.6559; Longitude 15.1987) in a quite area and with several wonderful volcanic inlets determining striking part of coast.

Exploring eastern Sicily:: Pozzillo is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies closed (few kilometers) far from Acireale, a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza. In addition Taormina (‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’) is far from 35 km represent the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Pozzillo is an excellent base from which you can visit wonderful archaeological and naturalistic locations: Syracuse (1 hour), Ragusa (2 hours), Agrigento (2 hours) and Palermo (2:30 hours).

Excursions to Etna Volcano: Etna volcano, the largest Volcano in Europe, has one of the world's longest documented records (from 1500 BC on) of historical volcanism. Historical lava flows of basaltic composition cover much of the surface of this massive volcano and alternates with beautiful forests with Mediterranean Flora and Fauna. The short distance from the Etna (30-40 km) offers for its ancient or recent lava flows, its forests, its villages, its landscape various opportunities for those people loving extraordinary excursion. Specific advise can be provided

We stayed at Anna’s apartment for 2 weeks (9th Aug – 23rd August) and had really a great holiday.

The accommodation is second to none. We were 2 families (in all 8 people) and the apartment in the villa was exactly as described and even though we thought we had found a very good place to stay, it exceeded our expectations in every way.

The apartment itself was clean and very spacious so that everyone could have his own privacy and at the same time enjoy the warm presence of the other family.

The outside space was wonderful: a great terrace with a wonderful sight of the sea just a few meters ahead, lava rocks and Mediterranean maquis with very nice Hibiscus. Many places to sit and enjoy the views and the beautiful sunshine, with tables, many seats and deckchairs you really are spoilt for choice.

The nice, small bay where to have nice swimming, snorkeling and dives from the lava rocks was very easy and fast to reach on foot in a couple of minutes through a private pathway starting from the villa courtyard, where on the way back we could have a fresh shower.

The apartment is ideally situated for days out, with Taormina, Castelmola, Giardini Naxos, Acireale on 25 minutes away as well as magnificent Etna volcano and its wonderful pinewood and central crater on 45 minutes away and wonderful restaurants within a 10 minute drive, either uphill to the Etna or coast-wards.

The apartment itself was only surpassed by one thing and that was the warm hospitality provided by Anna and Cherubino, They were always available and often popped in to ensure we had no problems.

We were also invited to their lemon farm where we experienced a wonderful walk through the citrus orchard and enjoy the Sicilian hospitality.

A massive thank you to both Anna and Cherubino for making our stay at their villa so special.

We all hope one day to return to Sicily to experience this wonderful place all over again.

A home far away from home

We stayed at Anna's house for a week. We were lucky to have booked it at the last minute. The house is spacious, super clean and had everything we needed. The view from the terrace was amazing overlooking the sea with it's beautiful volcanic rocks. Anna and her family were very kind and helpful, we were invited to her lemon farm where we experienced the Sicilian hospitality. The location was perfect for us, on one hand we enjoyed the serenity and the quietness of the place and on the other hand we were able to easily reach different parts of the island. Thank you Anna, we hope to see you again.
