Carmela sends very good directions for getting here. The problem is that in Sicily there are very few street signs when you need them, so we had to stop often to ask the way. But the confused journey is totally worthwhile. The house is a veritable palace, and the apartment we were in was utterly comfortable.
We didn't get to meet Carmela, but her energetic son swiped our suitcases to carry them up the steps to the suite. His English is as bad as our Italian, but they had lots of maps and brochures and his laptop has (website hidden) translator, so we got by. We expressed an interest in getting honey from Mt Aetna, and he knew just the person to take us to the right place.
For comfort and enthusiastic hospitality, we totally recommend both this place, and the young man who took care of us.
We have been traveling fot the past 3 months and this was by far one of our favorite places to stay. Carmela's son Nino was the best host we could have hoped for. He was very kind and willing to show us around his beautiful city. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. There was a great kitchen, fast WiFi, and beautiful architecture in the independent guest house with parking on property! We would absolutely stay here again, and next time it will be for much longer! Carmela was as sweet and welcoming as her son and we felt very lucky to stay with such an amazing family.
We spent 4 nights in Carmela's Villa and it was a great experience. The apartment is very spacious and very comfortable, in a old typical house of Acireale. We have been very well welcome by the family, and especially by Carmela's son, Nino who made sure that we did not lack anything.
The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped.
The house is well located, in the old city center, very close to the market, the bakery and the food store. The garden and the terrace are stunning, especially with our 3 years old child, it was great to let him play outside :-)
We really appreciated the possibility to park the car within the property!
We warmly thank Carmella and her family!

The stay at Carmela's place can not be described with any words. We had a marvelous time there from the beginning to end (we stayed for 6 days). The check-in time was handled really flexible and we were greeted by her husband Leo. He showed us the private parking area and helped us with our luggage. Furthermore, we were welcomed with a basket full of local fruits... It included the best mandarins we ever had!!! Even though we don't speak Italian we were able to communicate (thanks to (website hidden) translator :D ) easily. During our stay Leo was available for any questions any time.
Concerning the flat:
It is right in the center of Acireale within walking distance to a super market as well as a nice bakery where you can get a lot of different Sicilian specialties. Due to the private parking it is no problem to fit a parking spot especially since the streets are very narrow.
The apartment is not done justice with the pictures uploaded! It is even better :) The comfort is easily comparable with a five star hotel. The flat seems to be reasonably renovated and is in an excellent state.
From the flat it takes about 10 min to get to the highway which leads to all the nice spots in Sicily along the east coast. To get to Mt. Etna (south visitor center) takes you about 1 hour.
All in all it was one of our best Airbnb experiences and we can deeply recommend to stay at Carmela and Leo's place!!!
