Casa Busà is a ground floor apartment in a villa with garden right on the waterfront. From garden and terrace you can see the coastline from Pozzillo to Taormina and even Calabria in the distance. Guests can access the sea directly from the garden through a path that goes directly down to the lava rocks. In summer (June 15 to September 15), some stairs are built on the lava rocks making it easier to plunge in the sea. Casa Busà is situated at the end of a street with seafront houses and at 500 meters from the center of Pozzillo. The house has a living room with sea view, doors to the terrace with a great view that stretches from the typical lava rocks in front of the house to Taormina in the distance. Casa Ionio further comprises a double bedroom with sea view, a simple kitchen, another bedroom with a double bed (possibility two single beds), and 2 bathrooms with shower, toilet and bidet. The terrace is equipped with garden furniture. Wireless internet is available for free.
explore Mount Etna: Pozzillo is an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e 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!

The house is situated at the end of a street with seafront houses and at 500 meters from the center of Pozzillo. Pozzillo is a small, authentic fishing village that has a harbour where fishermen still tear up daily their colorful boats onto the black lava beach. Two streets away from Casa Busà (via Carammone 30) there is a grocery store which sells bread, fish and fresh eggs. The area of Pozzillo is characterized by lemon groves on the seaward greeny slopes of Mount Etna. 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.
Other Activities: excursion to Mount Etna.
About: We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.
Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.
We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.
Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.
