My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay at Livio's apartment in Stazzo. He greeted us upon our arrival and showed us around the apartment. Livio speaks very good English which was very helpful with our rather limited Italian.
The apartment itself felt like home being away from home. It is very spacious and well furnished and it would be perfect for either short term or longer stay. The biggest plus is a balcony with sea view and the sea being in such close proximity. We truly enjoyed our morning coffee and relaxing time in the balcony watching and listening to the sea.
The village itself is quite small so it helps having a car. Speaking of which the apartment offers a personal parking place which was very helpful indeed. It is easy to explore the island from the location and a visit to Taormina and the little fishing villages of Aci Trezza and Aci Castello is a must.
Overall we truly enjoyed our two nights at Livio's apartment and would definitely come back and recommend it to others.
It was a pleasure to meet Livio and stay in his beautiful seaside apartment. Livio is a very friendly and accommodating host and speaks good English (which is very helpful if your Italian is as poor as ours). He is excellent in communicating through the airbnb system or by text or phone.
The apartment is very well equipped as described and true to the photos, wifi internet access is reliable. The apartment is in a little gated village and feels private and secure, parking is on the premises. Access to the rocky lava beach is via a private gate and there is ample opportunity for swimming and fishing.
Breakfast on the terrace in the morning sun is a great experience, but you could spend all day out there, as you are protected from the miday sun.
Restaurants, small shop for essentials and fantastic ice cream and cakes are within easy walking distance, as is the little harbour with spectacular views of Mt Etna (weather permitting).
Out of the Italian holiday season the village is very quiet, whch suited us just fine. The location is ideal to explore this side of Sicily.
When we next visit Sicily, we will happily stay with Livio again!
Très bon accueil de la part de Livio, tout d'abord nous par SMS, puis au pied de l'appartement, superbe vue, intérieur décoré avec beaucoup de goût, appartement très lumineux, vue imprenable avec une terrasse bien équipée. En plus l'appartement était très propre.
We enjoyed staying few nights in Livio's apartment ! The apartment is well-furnished, clean, and the balcony' view is just fantastic ! From the house you can access directly on the rocks next to the sea and relax there. Livio's was really welcoming and always available. There was a private parking for our car (that's an important point when you renting a car and you dont want any damages..). We definately recommend this apartment !
A very nice, well equipped and cozy apartement that makes you feel at home at once. The best thing is the balcony overlooking the ocean! Very relaxing holidays guarenteed:-)
Wir hatten eine traumhafte Zeit auf Sizilien. Das Apartment in Stazzo war genau das richtige für uns: Ruhig und ziemlich abseits gelegen, vor allem aber so direkt am Meer, dass die Wellen und das Meeresrauschen jeden Morgen quasi mit am Frühstückstisch (auf der sonnenbeschienenen Terasse) saßen. Wenn Sizilien nicht so schön wäre, hätten wir wohl ganze Tage nur auf diesem Balkon verbraucht.
Auch der Rest der Wohnung ist sehr charmant und gepflegt. Unser Gastgeber Livio hat uns sehr nett willkommen geheißen und sich bei Fragen u.ä. zuvorkommend um uns gekümmert. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und kommen bestimmt gerne einmal wieder!

Sono siciliano, alla perenne ricerca della magia che avvolge ogni cosa nel mondo. Per questo mi piace leggere, ascoltare, discutere ed osservare. Che il mio interlocutore sia un luogo, un'opera o una persona è solo il caso a deciderlo...
