Our 5 year old twins fell in love with them. Tony's cooking is simply genius, Santa provides,what appears to be, effortless patience and Marco is a mine of local information and good humour. I suspect we'll be back.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The property is very clean and spacious with a lovely terrace off the top floor living/dining area. There is also a further roof terrace at the top of the house for those seeking uninterrupted sunshine. The house is well fitted out and comfortable with airconditioning in each room. It is only a few minutes' walk to the centre of Acireale and there is always something going on in one of the piazzas! There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance including the Mescan immediately below the house. There is a Deco supermarket within walking distance and larger supermarkets accessible if you have a car. There are plenty of places to visit if you have a car (but make sure it is a small one as some of the roads are very narrow) - we visited Etna, Siracusa/Ortygia, Taormina, Gole Alcantara, Acitrezza, Acicastello and Catania plus a number of beaches up and down the coast. The best sandy beach we found was in Catania, south of the port, where there are a large number of lidos where you can pay for entry/sunbeds and spend the day. The nearest place to the house to swim is in Santa Maria la Scala, which you can walk down to from the house although the walk back up is quite testing - there is a decking platform down there which has sun beds for hire and a decent bar/restaurant. If you are travelling with kids, we also recommend Etnaland, near Misterbianco, which is a large waterpark by day with lots of rides and in the evening, the other side of the park opens as a theme park, again with decent rides (andno queuing - at least when we were there!). Our host, Mario, was extremely informative and hospitable, providing plenty of info before and after arrival and Paola, who is the housekeeper, was very welcoming, charming and very helpful. In summary, we loved our stay at Casa Aranci and had an amazing holiday.
