Hints and tips from the owner:
" The house is only 500 meters from Acireale, a small town near Catania, and an important tourist site for the beautiful baroque style of its buildings and churches. It is also one of the most famous Carnival towns in Sicily. 5 minutes by car will take you to Santa Maria La Scala, a small picturesque fishing village, where you can sunbathe on the black lava rocks, swim in a blue sea, and taste delicious fresh fish dishes. Going towards Catania (15 Km.) there are other famous fishing villages: Acitrezza, Capomulini and Acicastello, with its Norman castle, on a lava cliff overhanging the sea. Some of the most important tourist sites on the eastern coast of the island, such as Taormina, Syracuse and Caltagirone, with its world famous ceramics, can be easily reached taking the highways and, of course, not to be missed, the volcano Etna.

"L'appartement et la situation sont supers, par contre nous avons été désagréablement surpris par la proximité d'une route très bruyante, dès 5h du matin! Impossible de dormir correctement, nous avons failli partir avant la fin du séjour. Dommage, le reste était ok, l'accueil correct. ce serait bien que ce soit signalé dans le descriptif."
"Casa pulita e spaziosa, cucina attrezzata e fantastico terrazzo panoramico. Contesto bellissimo, giardino immenso e comodo vialetto per parcheggiare l''auto. Unica pecca: la villa è adiacente ad una strada statale piuttosto rumorosa. E'' un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare la Sicilia orientale se automuniti (il mare non è raggiungibile a piedi). Nel complesso ottima sistemazione e padroni di casa molto cordiali e disponibili: fortemente raccomandato."
"Il contesto è molto bello con vista sul limoneto e lo splendido giardino, i proprietari simpatici, la casa pulita ed accogliente. Consiglio la casa come punto di partenza per visitare le attrattive limitrofe."
"La casa Belvedere es un lugar absolutamente encantador y un balcón desde el que acceder a la diversa belleza de Sicilia. La hospitalidad y amabilidad de sus propietarios hacen que la estancia sea un verdadero placer."
"Maravilloso lugar, en la zona verde de Sicilia, se divisa Taormina y Calbria al fondo. La casa en buen estado, limpia y completa. Posee una terraza con impresionantes vistas al mar. Los dueños amabilísimos. Todo perfecto, dos semanas inolvidables."
