Lovely apartment in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week in this apartment and hope very much to return next year. It is just as pictured, tastefully furnished and very clean, and the patio garden surrounded by tropical plants is lovely.

The owners are very jolly, welcoming and helpful, while respecting their guests' privacy (they live upstairs in what is a 2 storey villa).

The location in the edge of Acitrezza is very good - it only takes about 5 minutes to walk to the nearest beach, 10 minutes to the centre of Acitrezza and about 25 minutes to Acicastello. There is a choice of many good restaurants and bars in Acitrezza and and a number of beach clubs nearby, plus various points where you can access the sea for free. Everywhere there are beautiful views and the sea is the best I've ever swum in.

You don't need a car unless you are planning to tour a lot - we got a taxi there from Catania airport (E50) only because we were arriving quite late, but got the bus back which was absolutely fine for a total of E5 each.

Highly recommended!

Outstanding apartment. highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Orazzio is a very welcoming, very attentive host. He greeted us warmly and was keen to see that we had everything that we wanted and needed. The apartment is clean, very well furnished and very comfortable. All of the main rooms open and look onto the amazing garden which is the unique and outstanding feature of the property. It is private and perfectly equipped for sitting in and relaxing in the day time as well as for dining especially as it is tastefully illuminated at night. The apartment is well sited for access to the local towns of Aci Castello and Aci Trezza which have a range of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. You can access Catania with relative ease from where the train service runs regularly to all destinations however the bus service is an interesting experience! Orazzio’s apartment is an ideal holiday destination for a quiet getaway to relax as well as a base to explore the eastern side of Sicily and of course Mt Etna. Thank you Orazzio, for letting us use your apartment and for an amazing holiday in Sicily.

Orazzio è molto accogliente, ospite molto attento. Egli ci ha accolti calorosamente e ha voluto vedere che avevamo tutto quello che volevamo e avevamo bisogno. L'appartamento è pulito, molto ben arredate e molto confortevoli. Tutte le stanze principali aperte e si affacciano sul giardino, stupefacente, che è la caratteristica unica ed eccezionale della proprietà. È privato e perfettamente attrezzato per sedersi e rilassarsi durante il giorno, così come per i pasti soprattutto perché è illuminata con gusto di notte. L'appartamento è ben posizionato per l'accesso alle città locali di Aci Castello e Aci Trezza che hanno una serie di ristoranti e bar per tutti i gusti. È possibile accedere a Catania con relativa facilità da dove il treno passa regolarmente a tutte le destinazioni ma il servizio di autobus è un'esperienza interessante! L'appartamento di Orazzio è una destinazione di vacanza ideale per una vacanza tranquilla per rilassarsi e come base per esplorare il lato orientale della Sicilia e, naturalmente, l'Etna. Grazie Orazzio, per averci permesso di usare il vostro appartamento e per una stupenda vacanza in Sicily.

Compact maar fijn appartement

  • 3 of 5

Mooi en eenvoudig appartement. Wij waren met vijf personen en dat is max. Door slimme indeling met schuifdeuren kan de tweepersoons slaapkamer visueel bij de zitkamer en keuken worden getrokken. Door glazen gevel ruim en licht gevoel.

Eigenaar woont er boven. Met handen en voeten en half Engels valt goed te communiceren. Erg behulpzaam. Fijn terras met voldoende zon en schaduw. Op loopafstand van aci trezza en aci castello. Snel in Catania En ongeveer een uur van Taormina omdat het aan een doorgaande weg ligt.

Ferienwohnung Fam. Orazia Blanco

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung entspricht in vollem Umfang der Beschreibung. Besonders schön ist der Garten und die Terrasse. Vermieter sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend. Parkplatz auf dem Grundstück vorhanden und durch ein stabiles Tor abgesichert. Der Ort und das Meer sind innerhalb weniger Minuten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Sehr gute Fischrestaurants und Bars mit herrlicher Aussicht auf die Cyclopenfelsen.

Das einzig Störende war eine Baustelle nebenan.
