In the downtown of the stunning and renowned fishermen town of Acicastello, here it is this amazing detached house that, once, belonged to a rich and aristocratic XIX century’s family. This house, fully restored, has a stunning view of the Ionian Sea and the gorgeous castle of Acicastello (built in lava stone on the top of a lava’s rock!). There are two double bedrooms, two new and well equipped bathrooms, two bright saloons (with 2 extra beds) and a technological kitchen. The house has also two terraces: one with shower, ideal for refresh yourself after a bath in the ocean; We want also to underline the great location of the house, just in the downtown of the wonderful Acicastello.
Bedrooms (2) and Bathrooms (2): a double badroom on the ground floor; a double badroom on the ground floor; a bathroom (shower) on the ground floor; a bathroom (shower whit sauna) on the ground floor.

We are in Acicastello (photo), the spot of the Cyclops’ legend!
The magnificent castle fully built in lava stone is just in front this house.
The area is simply gorgeous and full of life and good food!
The nearby Acitrezza with its Faraglioni and the fish market is 1 km away
You will enjoy this amazing town.
We are in the eastern side of Sicily, and two masterpieces dominate the landscapes; the sea and Etna volcano, joined by something bigger thant them: the blue Sicilian sky!
Etna Park (Unesco’s), with its inactiv volcanos (the sons of Etna), caves, forests, lava grounds … lasts 15 km’s
Catania (photo), with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, lasts 5 km’s.
The Playa (beaches) lasts 10 km’s.
Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is almost 30 km’s away: it’s a magic place with the amazing Isolabella and its narrow streets rich in history, a sort of vintage atmosphere and fashion: cool!
Siracusa (Unesco’s), and its Greek masterpieces it’s almost 60 km’s away.
Another good tip is the visit of Pantalica (Unesco’s), with its more than 3000 graves carved on the rock, a river, a forest and a sort of mistery all around.
At a glance: Acireale (Baroque style, 5 km), Savoca (The Godfather movie’s spot, 40 km), Brucoli (sea, 40 km), Megara Ibla (archaeology, 40 km), Randazzo (40 km), Giardini Naxos (sea, 30 km), Cavagrande del Cassibile (nature, 60 km)
Its time to eat something and my tip is to do not miss the Pasta alla Norma and to have, at least once, a typical Sicilian breakfast: granita and brioche!
And, of course, fish, fish, fish … and visit the outdoor fish markets (Riposto, Acitrezza, Catania).
