This is a lovely house with direct access to the sea/ a volcanic beach (scogliera), located in the middle of the Ionian riviera - a prestigious part of the Sicilian coast in the middle between Catania and Taormina.

This cottage house is an ideal place for a relaxed vacation. If you need a rest, if you like nature, sea air, enjoying every moment in a calm atmosphere - this place is for you!

*In summer months (especially July and August) the neighbourhood becomes lively and many families come there with children. If you have children 2-12 y.o., it is an ideal place for them to make new friends and you will not be bothered about their leasure time - you can be sure your kid will speak Italian in a week's time! Everyone in the neighbourhood is very welcoming and children play safe altogether from morning till evening

________

The closest city is Acireale and the property is situated in 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.

You will be completely independent in this house, we will give you the keys and you can contact us any time when needed, however during your stay you will enjoy Sicily, sun and the sea. You can expect a perfect romantic vacation or a great family rest where both you and your kids will have a wonderful time.

Etna, Taormina, Messina, Siracuse, Catania are all relatively close and can be reached by car in 20-60 minutes.

We can help organise tours upon request.

In most cases we can also organise the transfer to/from the airport for an additional payment. Please contact us for details. Arriving with public transport is difficult, we do not recommend counting on this option.

THINGS TO NOTE

*We do 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 option are available right next to the house. Having a car would be very useful for the trips.

*The roads in Sicily in general and in particular in Santa Tecla and in the condominium are narrow and there are lot's of ups and downs/hills. We advise to book the smallest car possible for your amount of people and luggage as it will be very useful during your trip

*If you do not have an idea of what 'scogliera' is, please check either the photos or google the images of it - it is not a sandy beach and the beach in a traditional way of thinking. The closest sandy beach is about 20 km away.

*Both bedrooms are double rooms. There is an extra single bed in the living room in case two double beds are not enough.

*The house is equipped with everything basic and necessary for a comfortable living. However, if you have any special request or question - please check with us.

*We provide you with the bedsheets and towels. If you stay more than a week we also provide you with a change for the bed linen. We can organise a daily/weekly cleaning or towels/ bed linen change upon request for an additional charge. Alternatively, there is a washing machine that you can use.

*We provide you with a portable modem and a sim-card for Internet which you can use during your stay, in the house as well as outside. The Internet provided is 100 MB per day only. The cost for loosing or breaking the modem is 120 Euro.

“Really nice stay”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2014

Thanks to Oksana, we missed nothing. She was really caring. We had a really nice stay at your place. A nice house with a lovely garden, direct to the sea. We really recommend this accomodation in the shadow of the Ethna

You are always welcome back! It was great to meet you both. All the best and thanks!

“Quiet, comfortable and relaxing - good base to explore from”

Reviewed 19 May 2014

The house is a good size, clean and well equipped. We were there in early May and it was lovely to have breakfast under one of the lemon trees. It's a short walk in either direction to the next villages with plenty of choice for places to eat and local shops, and with great views of Etna en route. Oksana was extremely helpful beforehand and during our stay, answering emails promptly. We really enjoyed our first trip to Sicily.

“Great place to stay in Sicily”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

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:)

Thanks a lot for staying! You are always welcome back! We have some new things for the kids to swim and to learn swimming, so next time it will be even better! Hope to see you again soon.
