The closest bigger city is Acireale and the house is situated between two smaller towns of S. Tecla and Stazzo. The house makes part of a condominium of 10-15 houses which enjoy the exclusive access to the sea/private vulcanic beach.
In the area there are some good places to eat - in the nearby towns, which would require 3 min drive or 15 min walk.
Etna, Taormina, Messina, Siracuse, Catania are all relatively close and can be reached by car in 20-60 minutes.
We recommend renting a car for the guests who would like to combine a relaxad vacation at the sea with active tours and exploring Sicily, as the closest transportation hub is a couple of kilometres away uphill, and few transportation options are available right next to the house. Having a car would be very useful for the trips.
Requested in advance, we can also organise the transfer to/from the airport for an additional charge.
Internet: We will provide you with a portable modem and a sim-card for staying connected. You can use the modem both inside and outside the house during your trips in Sicily. Please note that only 3 Gb per stay (for all devices) is included in the rent (up to 1 month). It is possible that you buy another sim-card with Internet and use it with oru modem if this amount is not sufficient.
The closest beach (rocky) is exactly 70 meters away.
From September till June there are few people staying in the condominium, one can enjoy maximum privacy. In summer there are mostly families with children or some couples there, it may become quite crowdy over the weekend and the week around August 15th. However, it still remains a silent place where to get a good relax.
We can help organise the tours upon request.
Oksana and Francesco were caring and attentive hosts and provided us with usefull information about Sicily and even a wireless portable internet router while staying in Sicily. Their place was overall very good value for money and location is really nice if you want to combine easy access to the sea with abiilty to reach main tourist attractions within a short period in time. Visiting Sicily in October is recommended and our kind hosts did their utmost to provide us with relevant information and accomodate our needs.
Super nice people with very helpful tips. Easy and quick contact anytime. We had to leave earlier than planned, but it was no problem at all, thank you again! The place isn't big but has everything you need. We enjoyed our stay!
We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful summer house among lemon trees with only 100 metres walk to the sea on a private condominium road ! Nice location near the small town Santa Tecla in about 15 min walk or 3 min drive. There is quite big supermarket so we could buy some food to cook at home - all the facilities are provided. In the evening we enjoyed pizza and local vine in one of the pizza places with the sea view. Convenient place to drive to Taormina, Siracuse, Catania as autostrade is easily achived by car. We parked car just in the yard near the house so had no worries about any damage though the area seems to be very quite and safe.
The only thing we missed was good internet connection though it is not that important when you're on vacations with your family:)
We wish we could stay longer in this house as Francesco and his wife Oksana are very open and warmly welcoming hosts! They cared about any detail (even bought grill when we asked if they have it for barbeque!!!) or question we had and really tried to make our stay unforgetable. We could always reach them by phone when we had questions and gave useful advices on where to go or what do to:) very good english was very important for us as it seemed to be quite rare among italians:)
