Riposto house description

This apartment is part of a typical Sicilian 'Palazzo' and has a private access to the sea. From the terrace you can admire a sweeping view over the bay of the small fishing village called Pozzillo and the sea. It is located on the ‘Lemon Riviera', the coast between Catania and Taormina, so-called due to the infinite number of lemon groves. In summer Pozzillo is a seaside destination for the islanders who enjoy diving off the wooden platforms. When you plunge into the sea in front of the house it feels as you are diving straight into your own private salt-water pool. The ground floor comprises a lounge with satellite TV, DVD player and wireless internet, a kitchen, a dining table and a bathroom. The top floor comprises a bathroom with shower, bidet & toilet, a bedroom with double bed and one bedroom with two single beds (can be joint as double). Parts of the upper floor are made of glass creating a unique look-through from the bedrooms on the sea rocks. All rooms have air-conditioning.


Extra / Excursions: Food:
At a few km of the house, in a town called Santa Tecla (address: via Canale Torto 34), is the renowned fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. A meal that consists of wine, water, antipasto (first course) and pasta costs around 20 Euro. Including a second course, it would cost around 30 Euro.

Boat/fishing excursions:
Lorenzo, the owner of fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo” (address: via Canale Torto 34, Santa Tecla) organizes boat trips with local fisherman or with a speedboat along the beautiful coastline between Catania and Taormina. The meeting point for a trip with local fisherman is at the restaurant “Da Lorenzo”, at 19:00 o’clock. The excursion lasts for a couple of hours.

The area: Pozzillo is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The quaint fishing village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just five kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 25 kilometres from Pozzillo. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Pozzillo. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.

Etna: Pozzillo is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
