Very rural area and accommodation
We loved being able to walk to 6 different restaurants and a supermarket from the house. However everything else you need to drive to as it’s such a rural location. If you just want to soak up the sun by the pool it’s for you as the pool is huge. The lemon groves are beautiful and peaceful. A good spot to base trips from if you’re prepared to risk driving on these tiny roads where the locals speed like lunatics!
Mosquito bites a pain even tho we prepared for them. Beware. No air con and no lounge area. Fan in room though which was essential. Not a lot of English spoken in the area nor by the hosts which makes it complicated.
Peaceful and hot despite a thunderstorm one day but too basic for our tastes.
Great property, location and helpful owners. Thoroughly enjoyed stay. Pool in secluded location is a big hit. Local food excellent and good connectivity to sites of interest.
Quiet and relaxing with a friendly host. Pool and lemon groves surrounded us. Good restaurants local
We had a week of great weather, staying in this gorgeous little apartment, often eating the fresh fruit from the orchard.
Santa Tecla is a small village a friendly cafe for the daily granite and fresh brioche for breakfast, and 4 restaurants, the best of which was the fish restaurant Dal Barone where the really helpful waiter was able to recommend the daily fresh options. Two highlights were the black ink cuttlefish pasta, and the sea urchin pasta, but the grilled fresh fish was simply cooked and equally wonderful.
The tour of Etna was brilliant and very informative, organised through Legendary Sicily, our guide was Eddie.
Coppia di coniugi molto cordiale, hanno apprezzato la casa e il territorio, godendo della tranquillità che c'è nel paese nel mese di settembre.

"We had an absolutely wonderful time.
Agatha, her husband and son(s) are very friendly and accommodating.
The apartment is clean and spacious enough for 4 people situated in a lovely lemon tree garden.
The center piece although is the huge swimming pool including spa and diving board - we had a hard time to get our sons to spend time away from it :)
Well situated to do day trips to the Etna, Alcantara, Taormina or Catania.
I wouldn't be suprised if we book it again in years to come.
Highly recommended to families with kids!!
Kind regards again from the Robert, Marielle, Luka and Timo."

"A nice, safe and quiet place to spend a week or two. The house, the pool, the garden and the cozy town nearby create a perfect holiday atmosphere. The kitchen equipment/dinner set can be criticized a bit, though. By car, you can reach many places of interest in a one-day trip."

"Very clean and comfortable accommodation with all equipment needed. Breathtakingly beautiful surroundings, excellent pool surrounded by lemon grove etc. View of Etna (with red lava by night) from the garden. Shopping and Restaurants in walking distance with further choice of amenities only 15 mins drive away. The owners are extremely welcoming and a rich source of local information. Would recommend without any hesitation whatsoever."
Take the A18 motorway, exit at Acireale and follow the signs to Santa Tecla / sea. The house is 40 minutes from Catania airport.
In the village there are numerous restaurants that offer a menu based on dishes of Sicilian cuisine, almost all seafood caught locally!
Near the village you can enjoy typical Sicilian summer breakfast made from granita.
In addition to visiting the main tourist sites of eastern Sicily is possible to walk between the countries of the Riviera of the Cyclops and centers on the slopes of Etna.
