The space

Original independent house of 19th century, was renewed in 2009. The interiors are bright and connected to each other; the entrance is from the kitchen – then a small access room leads to the bath room with shower and to the sleeping zone that features a double size bed with mosquito net and a comfortable walk-in closet.
A stair leads up to the mezzanine- living room with a wide glass door opened on the terrace facing the Jonian Sea.

Facing east and at the ground floor of a courtyard of one of the eldest side of the old town, the house has been recently restored enhancing the sea view and the sunrise to enjoy from the small but comfortable terrace as well as from the living room.

The house is located in old town, in the picturesque and popular neighborhood called "Suffraggio". There is a rail line in 50mt distance, but the area is very quite, you can hear the train but only for few second and very few time per day.

At the back of the sumptuous Cathedral square of Acireale and the astonishing beauty of the baroque church of S.Sebastiano, our house is the ideal spot for a holiday made of art and nature; the historical centre and its variety of restaurants and Pizzerie, the daily outdoor fish&fruit market are all at just 5 minutes walking distance while a 17th century walking path, crossing the lush green Natural Preserve of “La Timpa”, leads down to the sea side and to the charming fishing village of Santa Maria la Scala. Do not forget goggles and fins!...amazing depths perfect for snorkeling!!

Here you will also find good fish restaurant and the super good "granita" at Bar La Timpa. "Granita" is a sort of slush that Sicilian have as breakfast at summer time. We eat it with bread or a brioche.

we recommend to have a pizza at Pizzeria Bambudda at the end of Via Chianello (10 min walking) and Il Tocco (10 min by car)

To do not miss "Bar Cipriani" (200 meters form your apartment)....any kind of typical Sicilian sweet or salty snacks. Try "arancini" (rice ball) and of course their "granita".

Upon request it is possible to have lunch or dinner in our EcoFarm located on the sloop of Mt. Etna. Meals are based mostly on our product. Every meal will start with a testing our Extra virgin Olive oil and Etna red wine! The farm is 25 min drive distance.

Even if we are located in the historical center, parking is not a problem (but better to rent a small car).In a range of max 300 meters you can find 3 small squares, many side streets and a big public parking place.

if you are looking for a holiday without a car, this is the right place to do it.

We can pick up\drop of you from Catania's airport and once in Acireale, everything is walking distance, included bus stop to main destination.

Beautifully designed house in a sweet spot close to nature, the sea and in a typical Sicilian town. Waking up to streaming sunshine and breakfast on the sea-view terrace is guaranteed to start your day with fabulousness. Cristina and Angelo were super helpful with information and we even went up to their farm on Etna for an evening meal on one of the days (which was excellent). Perfect for days of absolute bliss :)

Super nice apartment for a trip to Sicily. Acireale is the perfect location to discover the East side of the island. The location of the apartment is very central, but in a quiet street: there is no traffic directly in front of the house, which is great. Easy to find and the owners are very helpfull. Nice balcony in the morning/afternoon sun with a view at the sea.

Cristina & Angelo are really nice hosts and the house is a little love nest. We got the best advice for spots to visits and thanks to them got a charming beach for us alone. Definitely to recommend!

The flat is beautiful, just as it is in the photos. It's clean, tidy, has all the necessary amenities and it's a short walk down to a nice non-touristy beach. It's also very close to the supermarket and central cafes/bars. It's easy to get out of Acireale so we used it as a base to explore the surrounding area (Catania, Etna, Taormina etc). Cristina was lovely, friendly and gave us excellent advice. The only difficulty was parking- not always easy in July.
