Overview

About the property

Terrace with great sea view, 2 sleeps, modern and bright

A tastefully furnished apartment with stunning views, situated on the coast of Acitrezza, 500 meters from the sea. Acitrezza lies halfway Catania and Acireale. Casa delle Alohe is located on the first and upper floor of a recently built villa with a magnificent view. The bright living room has access to the terrace with sea view, furnished with a rocking chair and a table with chairs. Stairs lead to the roof terrace with deck chairs and a 360-degree view, perfect for sunbathing.

Casa delle Alohe consists of a bathroom with shower, bidet and toilet, living room with a comfortable sofa, an open kitchen with dining table and a double room with stunning sea view. The presence of central heating and the sunny, south facing, position makes it ideal for a stay at any time of the year.

Acitrezza: Acitrezza is a charming fishing town, still relatively untouched by tourism except during weekends when it fills up with people from Catania in search of the sea. In summer Acitrezza becomes more fashionable and busy, with some nice bars and many restaurants. Near Acitrezza are the volcano Etna, the baroque town Acireale, the picturesque fishing village Santa Maria La Scala and the city Catania with its beautiful squares, main street Via Etnea (shopping area) and ‘must see’ fish market. Taormina is a short drive up the coast and Siracusa is about an hour's drive away.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

This is a 5 star review.

Arrival and meeting the brothers was easy and went like clockwork.

The apartment is almost exactly as described and the accommodation is faultless.

Why almost? The loungers in the photo were not present, although a pair of reclining chairs were.

The terrace faces east and is a delightful location for breakfast watching the sun reflected in the sea from the shade of the umbrella. We were there in a heat wave, so it may not be typical, but we were driven indoors by the sun after mid morning, but we could emerge again in mid afternoon when the terrace is in shade. Sun lovers can move to the roof if they wish, its in sun all day long.

The air con is only in the living room, but with the bedroom door open and a fan in operation the bedroom was never too hot.

It's difficult to be sure, but the area appeared to be a mix of holiday apartments and permanent residential. The neighbours were entirely Italian. We never walked into town, too hot, but it is a very short drive and parking is ridiculously cheap.

Thoroughly recommended.

Truly fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to explore Sicily's beautiful East coast, Casa delle Alohe is the perfect place to stay! The apartment is immaculate and has everything two people could possibly need, plus the two lovely sun terraces and the gorgeous views!

Guiseppe and and his brother, Jano, who take care of the apartment, are two of the loveliest people you could meet, and are a fount of information regarding the local area.

We had an amazing stay at Casa delle Alhoe, and would highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in Sicily.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property and the contacts were extremely helpful in giving information on places to visit and eat.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the property to family or friends and would definitely stay there again when returning to Sicily.

Beautiful views and perfect accommodations

  • 5 of 5

A gracious and helpful greeting from our host. The apartment is absolutely clean, comfortable and well- equipped. The views from the expansive deck and roof top are stunning. The town of Aci Trezza is perfect with beautiful views, charming fishing village atmosphere and authentic restaurants. A visit to Taormina was a great day outing. We enjoyed every minute of our week's stay.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Super apartment in a great location. Guiseppe and Jano were perfect hosts and the apartment was exactly as described, very clean, well maintained and well laid out. The outside space in particular is wonderful, with great views. We found the location was ideal for visiting the places we wanted to see, being quite 'central' to explore the east coast of Sicily. Aci Trezza itself has a good selection of restaurants and places to enjoy a gelato! Would recommend without hesitation!

Classy, modern and very clean apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is set high up the hill from Acitrezza village. It is exceptionally clean, really well decorated and furnished and very secure, everything is there that you need to self cater. The sun terraces are huge with sun loungers and even a swing and the all important umbrella for shade. The owners are fantastic, we had a problem with the air-conditioning unit which was fixed within 24 hours of our phone call, nothing is too much trouble for them and their little touches of welcome are much appreciated.

You do have to have a certain physical ability to reach the apartment from the road unless you go out in the car all the time. We looked upon the walk as part of our fitness regime to walk off the pizza, pasta and of course the wine. AciTrezza has many restaurants serving A la Carte and pizzeria type menus. You need a car to get to the main supermarkets which are a short drive away, we visited at the end of August beginning of September and found the traffic to be quite heavy.

A lovely place to stay.

Acitrezza is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
