My house is located in the Aci Castello’s hill, in the village of Ficarazzi that lasts just a km and where you can find everything you need (markets, shops, eateries, pharmacy, ATM, groceries, bakeries …). The villa is fully immersed in a pine forest that is my pride !!! You can walk it enjoying the silence, the mushrooms and the rabbits. My house spreads on two levels. On the ground floor we can find: a living room with a glass window facing the pool area and the sea; a fully equipped kitchen; a double bedroom and two bathrooms. Through a wodden staircase you can access the first floor where you can find a big saloon overlooking the living room, and where you can also find a telescope, another of my passions that might allow you to explore al the Ionian coastline. In this level there is a twins, a bathroom, and a suite with a stunning terrace with sea view. All the rooms are bright, spacious and elegant. The outdoor shows a large pool area with a gorgeous and unforgettable view of the Ionia sea. Just outside the kitchen there is a BBQ area.

The area

By Giovanni Vallone (President of MammaSicily, writer, author)

We are in Ficarazzi, a renowned area of Catania, located above the gorgeous sea villages of Acicastello and Acitrezza.

 

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 10 km’s

Catania, with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, lasts 10 km’s.

The Playa (beaches) too lasts 10 km’s.

I suggest you to get a visit to Acitrezza and Acicastello (5 km’s), fishermen hamlets, where the lava flow has painted a castle and basalt giants (sea stacks).

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 tips 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 tipi s 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).

A lovely, large villa with ample living space inside and out, a big pool and wonderful views! The kitchen and outside cooking/bbq area makes self catering a pleasure. The villa has everything you need just like you were at home! All bedrooms have air con which is a Godsend. The local village is within walking distance and has a couple of basic supermarkets, bakeries, butchers and fish shop in addition to pizzerias, spit roast chicken take away, a couple of local bars/ice cream/pastry shops. To venture further afield to larger supermarkets and the nearby coastal towns; which have plenty of restaurants, lidos etc., you need a car - we considered the roads down too dangerous to walk. These towns do get very busy and jammed with cars; parking can be a problem but we found it easier if we got down there before the Italians who arrive a little later around 9 pm!

My four friends and I spent a wonderful time in Giovanni's villa in Aci Castello (and Sicily in general) and are more than thankful for the great hospitality and helpfulness we experienced. The big and well equipped house is situated in a walled compound (which made us feel very safe) in the hills and offers a terrific view over the sea. The big pool provides a nice cooling-down at any time and the kitchen as well as a great outside kitchen/barbecue leave nothing to be desired. All things considered, a vacation in Aci Castello is highly recommendable.
