Terrazza sul Mare This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Acireale

Description

Terrazza sul Mare is an attractive two-bedroom villa, with steps down to the sea and terrace views over the tiny fishing port at Pozzillo on Sicily’s east coast. Located just outside Acireale, Pozzillo is the perfect base for visits to Mount Etna and for exploring Taormina, Catania and, further south, Syracuse and Noto.

The villa is ideal for anyone looking for a more authentic experience of Sicily. The pace of life is slower than in some of the better-known resorts and the villa’s proximity to the sea means you can relax on the terrace at night and watch the blinking lights of the fishing boats out at sea. Buy fresh fish at the stall which sets up shop each morning on the nearest street corner or tuck into some superb seafood and traditional cuisine at any of the excellent local trattorie in Acireale and on the slopes of Mount Etna.

Entry into the villa is on the ground floor which leads straight out on to an expansive covered terrace with sea views. Furnished with a dining table, lounge-style chairs and a sofa, the terrace provides an additional ‘al fresco’ living room during the warmer summer months. When you need to cool off, wander down to the rocks and a tiny pebbly beach via stone steps straight from the villa.

The main living area is on the first floor, comprising a small living room with sofa bed, kitchen and attractive bathroom with shower. There are two double bedrooms, one with an en suite toilet. On the lower floor, there is an additional living room, a bathroom with shower and a second kitchen, equipped with a fridge and dishwasher.

The area

Under an hour by car from Catania, Terrazza sul Mare is in a great position for exploring much of Sicily’s east coast. Start off with the town of Acireale, best known for its Mardi Gras carnival but also worth visiting for its fine baroque buildings, including the Cathedral and the Basilica dei Santi Pietro e Paolo. The main shops are along the Corso Umberto I while the best views are from the gardens of the Villa Belvedere.

Many of the beaches along the craggy coastline of the Riviera dei Ciclopi are stony which means fewer crowds. There is an attractive sandy beach at Torre Pozzillo and access to several sandy beaches at the Timpa Nature Reserve. If you are looking for more of a buzz – and some great shops – head north to Taormina where shop windows are glitzy and glamorous and the coastal views are spectacular.

A day trip to the ancient Greek city of Syracuse, which is around 100km to the south, is well worth the effort. If you prefer to stay closer to home, ask us about the various excursions and activities on Mount Etna, including hiking and cycling tours and wine-tasting at the superb wineries on the volcano’s lower slopes. For anyone keen on adventure activities, a range of land and water-based activities are available at the Alcantara Gorge to the north of Acireale.

Mooi aanbod en goede communicatie. De te krappe douches ten spijt is het een voorrecht om op deze plek te verblijven. Een oud huis gebouwd op een lavastroom. Vanaf het balkon is de hele dag reuring in het kleine haventje te zien en voor de deur een vishandel, verser kan het niet! Prima uitvalsbasis om de oost-kust te verkennen. Je bent ook in een half uur rijden bij de dorpjes op de Etna. Geen toerist te bekennen, alleen de Sicilianen zelf, vriendelijk en gastvrij. Een verademing na ons bezoek aan Taormina.
