Property description

An Art Nouveau-style castle near the sea, with a superb private pool, and surrounded by one and a half hectare park that includes a lawn with a swing, a lemon orchard, bougainvillea, roses, palm trees and a wonderful pine: in Castello Claves you can truly have a taste of 19th century decadent life!

The castle, located just 200 meters from the square and the marina of Stazzo, was built in the late nineteenth century and used as a base for hunting. The descendants of the first owners - an exquisite elderly couple - live on the ground floor. The couple, while occasionally using the park and the pool, provides privacy for their guests who will have the rest of the property and a private entrance.

The first floor of Castello Claves has a large living room with access to a spacious panoramic terrace. On this floor there are also a double bedroom with view of Mount Etna, a large double bedroom with access to the terrace, a third bedroom with two single beds (which can be united), two bathrooms (one with bath) and a kitchen with dishwasher.
The second floor is the floor with the turrets. The turrets offer a charming stay with a marvellous 360 degrees view that includes the sea and Mount Etna. The panorama gets even more fascinating at nights with all the towns lights! You can access the two turrets from the terrace on the rooftop. The north tower has a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The south tower has a single room that can be reached via a spiral staircase. This room does not have a bathroom.

Castello Claves is ideal for families and friends who are seeking an exclusive experience in Sicily! The park is well kept also thanks to the owner who, among other things, has let the vegetation grow up to the first and second floor in order to provide the terraces with a green roof and therefore a beautiful and desired shade. The refreshing pool measures 15 x 7 meters and is open from April until October.

The first floor of Castello Claves offers a pleasant stay even in low season thanks to its radiators. The turrets, not having the heating, are not suitable for a winter stay.

Stazzo: Castello Claves is located at 200 meters from the sea, in a village that thrives on fishing during low season and tourism during high season in summer. There are two marinas and restaurants. In the nearby villages of Santa Tecla and Santa Maria La Scala, there are excellent seafood restaurants. Taormina and Giardini Naxos are about 25 km further away.
