Lovely view in Aci Castello

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a base to explore Eastern Sicily. It was great. Don't miss the square near the castle. We went on a Sunday and it was charming. Lovely landlady.

Non-touristy haven

  • 5 of 5

As all other reviews of this place: not enough can be said. First, you are NOT in a touristy town, you are in a place where locals live, dine, and promenade in the evening in the piazetta by the sea: a rare experience. You will fall in love with the town and be sorry to leave. As to the home and the hostess, Maria: she goes beyond and above. The house, with its high ceilings, lovely tiled floors, spacious bedrooms and fully equipped kitchen, big covered terrazza and breezy air is a delight. Our arrival fell on my husband's birthday: Maria made a traditional sicilian torta di pistacchi and left us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. She is always accessible if you have concerns or problems. In short: splendid experience of Sicily, and I want to re-book for next year. Thank you, Maria!!!!

Well located, spacious property.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with plenty of room for 8. Great terrace looking over the harbour and castle. Perfect location for restaurants, bars, water sports etc. Maria, the owner was charming. She responded to all our questions quickly and fully and was particularly helpful as we changed our arrangements at least twice! Fully recommended.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

There are simply not enough words to describe our amazing stay at this property. Maria is the consummate hostess. We were presented with a home made cake upon our arrival, another cake when she had to stop by for a brief visit, and called a day into our stay making sure everything was in working order and to see if we needed anything. We had to leave a 4 am in order to make our flight and she arranged to have a reliable taxi come get us. While the villa is gorgeous and spacious, Maria is the crown gem that made our stay that much more unforgettable.

One thing to point out, AciCastello can be a popular town on a Friday/Saturday night and the Italian people talk passionately and love to stroll the "lungomare" which the villa sits on. It can get loud on those evenings so staying in the upstairs bedrooms would be best if you are a light sleeper.

On the flip side, the walkability of the location is perfect. Acitrezza is a 20 minute walk with additional restaurants and cafes and more beautiful scenery. The views from the terrace in the morning are spectacular and we loved having coffee and delicious Sicilian pastries in the morning from there.

Again cannot say enough. Would definitely stay here again on a future visit.

The Excellent Reviews are completely justified

  • 5 of 5

When we read the reviews for this property were we a little suspicious. How could a property be this good? Well, having stayed there for a week, we now know the reviews were accurate. This property is a gem. The house is completely set out for your comfort and enjoyment. It was fantastic. It is spacious and has everything you would want.

Maria is a lovely person. We missed our connection in Rome and were very late arriving. This was not a problem for Maria. We had informed her but there she was patiently awaiting our arrival at nearly 10pm! She took the time to show us around the property and give us details of things to see, where to eat and other useful things. She also contacted us every couple of days to make sure everything was alright. It was like having a relative nearby!

Maria also baked us a delicious pistachio cake and stocked the fridge with all sorts of goodies to help us through the first day.

The location of the property is fantastic. It has an uninterrupted view of the water and the castle. It is very close to Aci Castello town with shops and restaurants. It is an easy drive to Catania, Siracusa, Mt Etna and Taormina.

I would thoroughly recommend this property and its owner Maria. Thanks for a great holiday.

The "BEST" of Sicily!!!! Fabulous month in heaven.

  • 5 of 5

The “best" of Sicily, is here in this beautiful, well kept seaside villa located in the quaint, scenic town of Acicastello. We spent our Holidays here and loved every minute of it! Enjoying coffee, fresh breads and pastries from the local shops on the front terrace overlooking the sea and the ancient castle was the way we started our days, and fell asleep each night with the sound of the sea, just outside our windows. The view is breathtaking, the villa very comfortable, and just a few steps from shopping, cafes, a family friendly piazza bustling on weekends with sidewalk coffee bars and restaurants. There is a wonderful wine bar where the locals will welcome you, and church bells that lilt down to the villa several times a day. The location is perfect. There is a coastal road just beyond the castle which runs high above the sea affording amazing views. It is a nice place to walk, jog or bike. Just a short walk south and you are in Aciterezza where there is a scenic walk, restaurants and shops. Historic Taormina is 35- 40 minutes by car and the Plaza Duormo in Catania about 20 minutes.

The owner of the villa is Maria, a wonderful warm and welcoming woman whose goal is to be sure you are comfortable in every way. She provided first class service above and beyond any expectations. The well appointed kitchen was stocked with essentials to get us started, juice, fresh Sicilian oranges, toast, coffee etc.... We had one minor maintenance issue and Maria responded immediately, with a repairman there the same day. It was a worry free month.

All of the rooms are warmly furnished, spacious, with high ceilings and have plenty of storage to unpack and settle in.

Our son, daughter in law and 18 month old grandson came for 2 weeks over Christmas, the villa could not have been more perfect to handle the baby. A new pack & play style crib, a high chair and spacious tub for bath time were all provided.

The month we spent in Acicastello in the villa by the sea was heavenly and flew by all too quickly. Is there a way to give it 10 stars? It could not have been more perfect!
