Two apartments, that can be rented separately, both with a terrace on the waterfront, right next to the main square of Santa Tecla. From the terrace you can admire a sweeping view over the bay of the small fishing village called Santa Tecla, its square and the sea. Right next to the house are stairs to the shores of lava rock. When you plunge into the sea in front of the house, it feels as though you are diving straight into a salt-water pool. Casa Maestrale is located on the ‘Lemon Riviera', the coast between Catania and Taormina, so-called due to the infinite number of lemon groves found at the foot of the volcano Etna. In summer Santa Tecla is a seaside destination for the islanders who enjoy the pebbled beach that distances only 400 metres from the house. Santa Tecla has a small port, a village square at the seaside with an ice-cream shop, a bar, various pizzerias and two excellent seafood restaurants. For example the renamed and affordable seafood restaurant 'La Bettola dei Marinai', only 50 meters from the house.
The terrace offers a spectacular view of the bay of Santa Tecla and is ideal for outdoor eating, and aperitifs as you watch the sun setting over the village or enjoy the sunrise from the sea in the morning.

Santa Tecla is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The quaint fishing village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just three 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 20 kilometres from Santa Tecla. 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 Santa Tecla. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.
Santa Tecla is also 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!
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.
