Going north along the seafront, just over 10 kilometers from Catania, we come to Aci Castello. Whilst still maintaining its ancient origins, this little town has gradually become a prestigious seaside resort visited by many tourists. The town's most characteristic feature is the XI century Norman Castle built on a ridge of lava overhanging the sea.
La Fragoletta is situated just over 1 Km from the village, along the coast in the direction of Catania, inside a small residential complex with sea views. The property is surrounded by a fenced garden with a private swimming pool at the back that can be heated and a solarium with loungers and deck chairs. The furnishings are modern and very comfortable. There is a very well-equipped kitchen with oven, dishwasher, microwave, American coffee-maker and many other accessories. The bedrooms - one of which has a comfortable double sofa bed - are positioned on the first floor. There is air conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi internet and a washing machine. The cleaner is also willing to prepare meals at an extra cost. Across the road, guests can access a wooden platform above the cliffs, overlooking the sea. Catania is around 10 Km away, Taormina 50. There are many excellent restaurants along the coast. We particularly recommend the seafront restaurants at Aci Castello.

The largest of the Italian islands, Sicily overflows with an abundance of natural and architectural beauty. From the slopes of Mt Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, to Palermo's classical ruins and the family-friendly sparkling blue waters of Giardini Naxos and Letojanni, Sicily has something for everyone.
Perhaps one destination which sums up Sicily's charms is Taorimna, where twisting medieval streets host bustling boutiques and restaurants alongside an awe-inspiring Greek theatre. A cable car carries beach lovers to the town's sweeping bays, from where you can enjoy dramatic views along a rugged coastline.
Throw in the island's renowned passion for fine food and home grown wines, and you have the perfect recipe for a great holiday...and your own personal slice of 'la bella vita'.
