[ THE APARTMENT ]

Centrally located in the heart of the traditional sea town of Aci Castello (6km from Catania), this apartment represent a convenient solution for couples or families willing to experience a relaxing and comfortable stay our the stunning Sicilian coast.

It`s inclusive of 2 bedrooms, spacious living room, kitchen and three large balconies.

At the end of 2013 has been fully renovated with traditional marine deco from local suppliers.

Great for those who want to move by walking or public transport. All of the various services (mini market, bakery, tobacco, pharmacy and para-pharmacy) are within 2 minutes walking distance.

The apartment is equipped with all appliances and accessories: washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, oven, water heater, vacuum cleaner, air conditioning in both bedrooms, electric heater oil for the winter. There is also a 42-inch LCD television with DVD player. With appropriate cables (via HDMI adapter), you can connect your pc, tablets and smartphones to the TV to view photos, video directly on the big screen.

(NEW!) Available XBOX console (with many games included) excellent for watching movies from DVD or external memory (USB pen-drive or USB Hard Disk).

(NEW!) Available Gaggia espresso machine (you can use dosing the coffee manually, as the bar, and also compatible with standard pods).

[ GUEST ACCESS ]

(Note!): the apartment is located on the second floor of the building. In order to access the apartment the tenants have to walk two floors of stairs. Such a condition might be restrictive for people with mobility issues.

[ INTERACTION WITH GUESTS ]

I welcome our guests personally and I hand over the keys. To all my guests I offer a welcome with typical Sicilian pastries (my guests were delighted by the flavors). When I can, I provide help to the first parking under the house. I try to answer all requests for information and suggest the best spots nearby.

Upon request, I can arrange guided tours of Mount Etna with a professional agency and multi-lingual guides (my guests were very satisfied). Upon request, I can arrange the mini-tour with my rowing boat, sailing between the stacks of Acitrezza (my guests were amazed by the unique experience).

I leave guests free to organize themselves independently but I am always available if they need help or information. I live 10 minutes away and work next door, so I'm always ready to help for any eventuality.

[ THE NEIGHBORHOOD ]

Below the Apartment there is a famous bar, patisserie, cafeteria, where you can enjoy typical Sicilian sweets, ice cream, cakes. One of the most popular bar for breakfast! highly recommended!

Piazza Castello, the main square of the town of Aci Castello. Very quiet and frequented by families with children, ideal for couples. It overlooks the sea, offering a wonderful view. In the evening you will find several restaurants and pizzerias frequented by both locals and tourists.

[ GETTING AROUND ]

Behind the house there is a bus stop "AMT" 534 that makes it Aci Castello - Catania (roundtrip). Under the house you can take the Bus "AST" Aci Castello - Acireale (roundtrip).

[ PARKING ]

You can park in the street below the apartment and nearby streets for free in places marked in white.

Alternatively you can park in the spaces marked by blue color. Paying a ticket from 08:30 to 13:00 and from 15:30 to 20:00 with the ticket machines arranged along the streets. Outside of the above times you can park for free.

[ HOW TO GET TO APARTMENT ]

(by car) I suggest you to rent a car in airport. Once you are in Sicily, from Aci Castello, you can go to visit so many wonderful places. Historic Centres of artistic importance, seaside resorts with fishing villages, Mount Etna with its many paths and much more. The beautiful Taormina, Siracusa with its remains of ancient Greece and Rome, Agrigento with its temples.

(by private transport) I can book a transfer service from Catania airport directly to Aci Castello. The service is offered by a professional agency that will pick you up at the airport with a comfortable van or mini-bus. The total cost of the transfer is variable depending on the number of people (€ 20,00 1-3 p. / € 45.00 4-6 p.)

(by public transport) From Catania airport there is not a direct bus to Aci Castello. You have to take 2 buses: a first bus arrive in Catania and then you have to wait for a connection with the bus that goes up to Aci Castello. It is not very recommended, because the buses are not always on time, and you risk to wait a few hours.

[ HOUSE RULES ]

Manage the apartment as if it were your home. Warn, at least the day before, about preferred time for check-out. No pets are allowed in large size. If small only on request and with approval. Do not keep too many appliances switched on simultaneously, it could cause the detachment of the light (in this case, you will need to go down the stairs and turn back the electricity meter). Avoid keeping the air conditioning turned on if you are not at home.

Ottimo per coloro che intendono muoversi a piedi o con mezzi pubblici. Tutti i vari servizi (mini market, panificio, tabacchi, farmacia e para-farmacia) si trovano a 2 minuti a piedi.

[ INTERAZIONE CON GLI OSPITI ]

Io accolgo personalmente gli ospiti e consegno le chiavi di casa. Quando posso, fornisco aiuto per il primo parcheggio sotto casa. Cerco di rispondere a tutte le richieste di informazioni e suggerisco i migliori spot nelle vicinanze.

Su richiesta, posso organizzare escursioni guidate sull'Etna con un'agenzia professionale e guide multi-lingua (i miei ospiti sono stati molto soddisfatti). Su richiesta, posso organizzare dei mini-tour con la mia barca a remi, navigando tra i faraglioni di Acitrezza (i miei ospiti sono stati meravigliati dall'esperienza unica).

Lascio liberi gli ospiti di organizzarsi in modo indipendente ma resto sempre disponibile se hanno bisogno di aiuto o di (website hidden) abito a 10 minuti di distanza e lavoro nell'appartamento accanto, per questo sono sempre pronto ad aiutare per qualsiasi eventualità.

[ COME RAGGIUNGERE L'APPARTAMENTO ]

(in auto - raccomandato) Suggerisco di noleggiare un auto in aeroporto. Una volta che siete in Sicilia, da Aci Castello, si può andare a visitare tanti posti meravigliosi. Centri storici di importanza artistica, località balneari con villaggi di pescatori, l'Etna con i suoi numerosi sentieri e molto altro ancora. La bellissima Taormina, Siracusa, con i suoi resti dell'antica Grecia e di Roma, Agrigento con i suoi templi.

(con i mezzi pubblici) Dall'aeroporto di Catania non c'è un autobus diretto a Aci Castello. Dovete prendere 2 autobus: un primo bus arriva a Catania e poi si deve aspettare per un collegamento con il bus che va fino a Aci Castello. Non è molto consigliato, perché gli autobus non sono sempre in orario, e si rischia di aspettare un paio d'ore.

(con mezzi privati​​) Posso prenotare un servizio di trasferimento dall'aeroporto di Catania direttamente a Aci Castello. Il servizio è offerto da un'agenzia professionale che vi verrà a prendere all'aeroporto con un furgone comodo o mini-bus. Il costo del trasferimento varia in base al numero di persone. (€ 20,00 1-3 p / € 45,00 4-6 p)

Gestisci l'appartamento come se fosse la tua casa. Avvisa, almeno il giorno prima, a proposito dell'ora preferita per il check-out. Non sono ammessi animali domestici di grande taglia. Se di piccola taglia solo su richiesta ed con approvazione. Non lasciare accesi troppi elettrodomestici contemporaneamente, potrebbe causare lo stacco della luce (in questo caso, sarà necessario scendere per le scale e attivare di nuovo il contatore della luce).

In the town of Aci Castello, a few steps from the apartment, you will find several bakeries, mini markets provided of all, greengrocers, butchers, a fishmonger well stocked with fresh fish and various products made ​​from fish, such as swordfish rolls or skewers shrimp (ready in a few minutes in the oven .. really tasty). The morning is easy to meet - in the street in front of the central church - a fisherman who sells fresh fish.

You will certainly enjoy even Acitrezza, which is about 15 minutes walking from Aci Castello, an ancient fishing village known for being the location of a movie, "The Earth Trembles" ("La terra trema"), directed by Luchino Visconti, inspired by the story of Malavoglias, an ancient family fishing. The scenery with the cliffs in the background is wonderful. On sunny days, it will be nice to relax in front of the sea sitting on the rocks of lava rock.
