spacious house - terrific views

  • 4 of 5

The house has plenty of room, and is positioned near the top of a steep hill overlooking the Ionian Sea. It's secluded, in among olive, citrus and pomegranate trees.

It was well equipped (though some of the mugs and cups have seen better days!). It's a good centre for exploring Sicily's east coast, but you need a car. I would recommend quite a tough vehicle, and the road to the house is steep and bumpy.

"House was in a beautiful location in the hills outside Catania. However, house if difficult to get to and is in need of repairs and a deep cleaning. Numerous electrical fixtures were broken or loose, and there was a constant infestation of insects of all kinds".

"Great house with an amazing sea view. The house is located on the mountainside in a big garden with olive trees and orange trees. But within 15 minutes you are in the center of Catania, so perfect location. The house is really comfortable, also for families with young children. We will defenitely come back to visit again."

"Amazing stay !

Fantastic place to stay. Beautifull typical house and garden, in a very quiet remote area but still close to the beach and nice villages on the shore. super view from the house on the sea ! Very nice to buy some fruits and vegetables (from local farms) at small shop (just at 10 minutes walk from the house)Very nice welcome from Mrs La Greca, we will never forget this very nice stay, our daughter 3 years old could play in the huge garden with no worries. How to say, very nice "chemical". It is a house where you will feel at home in a very warm athmosphere, no worries, cool place, real holidays !

The day we arrived we were welcomed by the family as they were having a family party and we were invited for aperitif, this was great to discuss with your family and get advices where to go !The house is situated in a huge garden, our intimacy was always preserved, we could do charcoals and grill fishes from the local fishermen villages."

"A lovely house with beautiful views to the sea and village below. A very rural location so a hire car is essential for getting around. We really enjoyed our stay and the owners were very kind and helpful."

Romantisches Domizil mit Blick auf roten Mond

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben im Oktober 2017 eine Woche zu sechst in dem Haus gewohnt und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Haus, etwas in die Jahre gekommen, steht mitten in einem wildromantischen Garten mit Oliven- und Zitrusbäumen, schöner Blick zur Bucht und abends auf der Terrasse sitzend auf den Aufgang eines roten Mondes, geschmackvolle und praktische Inneneinrichtung. Bäcker, Gemüseladen und Supermarkt zu Fuß erreichbar, zum (Sand-)Strand allerdings sind es ca. 30 km (Giardini-Naxos). Wir empfehlen eher kleine Autos (enge Gassen!) und unbedingt mit Navi (Straßengewirr und vielen Einbahnstraßen). Aci Catena ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Touren nach Taormina, Syrakus, Segesta, zum Etna etc.
