Overview

About the property

You will be surrounded by the magnificent 'Timpa' (natural reserve) and the amazing coast drawn with the lava of our volcano Etna in ancient times. The building has a large multi-level courtyard with view and easy access to the sea. The bedrooms offer relaxation and cosiness. They are air-conditioned and have a TV (satellite TV available).

There are 3 bathrooms, 2 showers, and 2 kitchens.

Internet is included for free.

The house is located in S. Tecla a village in the municipality of Acireale, famous for its 'Carnival', the baroque, its 100 churches, and the natural paths of La Timpa Natural Reserve. In Santa Tecla you will find everything you need: a supermarket, a post office, a bar (where you can taste an excellent 'granita'), extremely good seafood restaurants, and pizzerias. The sea area consists mainly of stone cliffs, and there is a beach at the beginning of the village. During the summer, there are fitted wooden platforms used to relax under the sun and have an easier access to the sea. The village is a good starting point to reach easily the natural and cultural beauties of the eastern Sicily: Etna, Taormina, etc. Everything is easily reachable by car and the public transport (Etna is reachable in less than 1 hour by car).

Between the many sites to visit in Acireale, the history lovers do not have to miss the Duomo, built between 1597 - 1618 and restored in the 18th century, with the 2 bell towers on both sides of the facade rebuilt in gothic style, and the Basilica dei Santi Pietro e Paolo, on the southern side of the Town Hall of 1659.

Not to miss for spa lovers, the Santa Venera spa, built in 1873, where you can find bath therapy and mud therapy.

We recommended you to the visit the Benedictine Monastery of Catania: one of the biggest convents of Europe. As a journey through time, you will move from the Roman period to the present day over more than 2000 years of history. The guided tour lasts about 1.15 min in the semi-darkness of the night in basements and gardens. The guide will describe all the rooms revealing myths, legends, and the controversial history of an architecture that show off the power and the taste of the Cassinese Congregation.

Recentemente ristrutturata, la proprieta' offre tutti i confort per una famiglia che vuole trascorrere una vacanza rilassante vicino al mare. L'assistenza fornita dal proprietario e' stata di ottima qualita'. Vogliamo ritornarci!

Very nice holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spent very nice holidays in this holiday home in Santa Tecla. The house has everything we needed. It is huge and was very clean and it looks exactly like on the photos. The beach of lava stones is directly behind the house. It's was very beautiful to have our breakfast oder lunch up on the terrace. We have felt very well.

And Santa Tecla is not touristic and its very calm. We come back again with pleasure. Greetings from Andrea und Arnold (Germany)

Location

Car: recommended

You have to take the motorway Catania-Messina, towards Messina. Then, take the exit of Acireale and follow the driving signs towards Santa Tecla.

The house is located in Santa Tecla, a village in the municipality of Acireale, famous for its 'Carnival', its baroque art, its 100 churches, and the natural paths of La Timpa Natural Reserve. In S. Tecla, you will find everything you need: a supermarket, a post office, a bar (where you can taste an excellent 'granita'), extremely good seafood restaurants, and pizzerias. The sea area consists mainly of stone cliffs, and there is a beach at the beginning of the village. During the summer, there are fitted wooden platforms used to relax under the sun and have an easier access to the sea. The village is a good starting point to reach easily the natural and cultural beauties of the eastern Sicily: Etna, Taormina, etc. Everything is easily reachable by car and the public transport (Etna is reachable in less than 1 hour by car).
