“Stella Maris - stunning view - peaceful Easter holiday”

We booked this rental for ten days during the Easter break. Signor Greco was very informative in the run-up to our stay and greeted us at the motorway exit in Acireale. Our first impression of the village was authentic Sicily. The apartment itself is beautifully situated on the lava rocks nearby with 180 degree views of the Ionian Sea and a chapel (Stella Maris) on the corner of the terrace.
A nice touch were the freshly picked strelitzia, lilies and lemons. And lemons there were, everywhere in the village as you can smell the groves over the wind.
The one bedroom worked fine for us, sufficient closet space and the bed was comfortable. The terrace which runs around the building is wonderful for enjoying the sun, having breakfast or other meals. The kitchen is small but functional although I did have some recommendations for some additional items. Signora Scuderi's artwork adorned the walls and it made the apartment feel very personal.
Please note the shower is on the tightish side so for a person who is used to a large walk-in shower this may come as a bit of a surprise.
The absence of a TV or radio was fantastic as it made us feel like we had truly escaped.
My daughter loved the walks out on the lava rocks and the fishermen.
We were there in April, which is early in the season but warm enough for sunbathing. There is heating in the bedroom and living room for chilly nights.
Signor Greco recommended that we eat in Santa Maria La Scala where we ate fantastic fish at La Grotta. Blue Bar in Stazzo (5min away) is great for coffee, pastries and ice-cream and people-watching.
Would we return? Definitely!
