Great for those who want to move by walking or public transport. All of the various services (mini market, bakery, tobacco, pharmacy and para-pharmacy) are within 2 minutes walking distance. The apartment is equipped with all appliances and accessories: washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, oven, water heater, vacuum cleaner, air conditioning in both bedrooms, electric heater oil for the winter. There is also a 42-inch LCD television. With appropriate cables (via HDMI adapter), you can connect your pc, tablets and smartphones to the TV to view photos, video directly on the big screen. [ New, 22 aug 2016: The air conditioning in the master bedroom was replaced with a new Mitsubishi Inverter ] [ New, 04 feb 2017: Fully renovated bathroom with modern fittings ]. [ GUEST ACCESS ] (Note!): the apartment is located on the second floor of the building. In order to access the apartment the tenants have to walk two floors of stairs. Such a condition might be restrictive for people with mobility issues. [ THE NEIGHBORHOOD ] Below the Apartment there is a famous bar, patisserie, cafeteria, where you can enjoy typical Sicilian sweets, ice cream, cakes. One of the most popular bar for breakfast! highly recommended! Piazza Castello, the main square of the town of Aci Castello. Very quiet and frequented by families with children, ideal for couples. It overlooks the sea, offering a wonderful view. In the evening you will find several restaurants and pizzerias frequented by both locals and tourists. [ GETTING AROUND ] Behind the house there is a bus stop 'AMT' 534 that makes it Aci Castello - Catania (roundtrip). Under the house you can take the Bus 'AST' Aci Castello - Acireale (roundtrip). [ PARKING ] You can park in the street below the apartment and nearby streets for free in places marked in white. Alternatively you can park in the spaces marked by blue color. Paying a ticket from 08:30 to 13:00 and from 15:30 to 20:00 with the ticket machines arranged along the streets. Outside of the above times you can park for free. [ HOW TO GET TO APARTMENT ] (by car) I suggest you to rent a car in airport. Once you are in Sicily, from Aci Castello, you can go to visit so many wonderful places. Historic Centres of artistic importance, seaside resorts with fishing villages, Mount Etna with its many paths and much more. The beautiful Taormina, Siracusa with its remains of ancient Greece and Rome, Agrigento with its temples. (by private transport) I can book a transfer service from Catania airport directly to Aci Castello. The service is offered by a professional agency that will pick you up at the airport with a comfortable van or mini-bus. The total cost of the transfer is variable depending on the number of people (€ 20,00 1-3 p. / € 45.00 4-6 p.) (by public transport) From Catania airport there is not a direct bus to Aci Castello. You have to take 2 buses: a first bus arrive in Catania and then you have to wait for a connection with the bus that goes up to Aci Castello. It is not very recommended, because the buses are not always on time, and you risk to wait a few hours. [ HOUSE RULES ] Please take care of the apartment as if it were your own . Please let me know, at least one day earlier, about your preferred time for checking-out. No pets are allowed, small pets may be allowed on request and after the owner's approval. Please do not switch on too many appliances at once, as it could result in an electrical overload (in this case, you will need to go at the bottom of the stairs and turn the electricity meter on again). Do not leave the air conditioning turned on when you are not at home. Please, always throw the garbage out before leaving the flat. Smoking is allowed only in the balconies. This is a private apartment offer for rent, in a non-professional form, for a period not exceeding 30 days. This does not include additional services such as breakfast, cleaning and linen change. It is not required to pay a tourist tax. Even for short term rentals by private individuals, it is a requirement to fill in all guests details online through the special web portal 'Alloggiati Web' (State Police), in compliance with art. 109 of T.U.L.P.S., so to fulfill any security obligations. At checking-in, you will be kindly required to spend a few minutes to register.More

Interaction with guests
I welcome our guests personally and I hand over the keys. I try to answer all requests for information and suggest the best spots nearby. Upon request, I can arrange guided tours of Mount Etna with a professional agency and multi-lingual guides (my guests were very satisfied). Upon request, I can arrange the mini-tour with rowing boats, sailing between the stacks of Acitrezza (my guests were amazed by the unique experience). I leave guests free to organize themselves independently but I am always available if they need help or information.

About the neighbourhood
In the town of Aci Castello, a few steps from the apartment, you will find several bakeries, mini markets provided of all, greengrocers, butchers, a fishmonger well stocked with fresh fish and various products made ​​from fish, such as swordfish rolls or skewers shrimp (ready in a few minutes in the oven .. really tasty). The morning is easy to meet - in the street in front of the central church - a fisherman who sells fresh fish. You will certainly enjoy even Acitrezza, which is about 15 minutes walking from Aci Castello, an ancient fishing village. The scenery with the cliffs in the background is wonderful. On sunny days, it will be nice to relax in front of the sea sitting on the rocks of lava rock. You will find many typical restaurants to eat seafood dishes and several bars for cocktails and more.
