“Relax and recharge”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in June 2016

Small village with bakery, small supermarket and a few restaurants. We were there before season really got going and had the place nearly to ourselves which suited us. Accommodation was great, shower tray could have been larger. No local place to swim in sea from. Platform lido not constructed for another week or so. There is a small beach at the far end of the village but it could be cleaner. Car essential. Lovely people managing the place. V helpful with any items such as extra pillows or arranging trip to Etna. May be a bit quiet if you have teens to entertain.

Thank you very much for your review, we want to improve ourselves :-)
I'm sorry for pillows , maybe there was a misunderstanding, because we have more of it... if needs. About Etna we work with an agency that use jeep to make a guided excursion, there are brochuret in the apartment.
Unfortunately the shower was made too small, but we want to larger it :-)
Thank you
Cordially

“Wonderful accommodation in peaceful location”
Reviewed 4 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We rented a studio apartment which was on the ground floor and hence we had a terrace which are all at the rear of the building which got the sun all morning until just after lunchtime. The studio was quite spacious with a large wardrobe, generous sized bed (although the frame creaks quite a bit) and a good fridge freezer in the kitchen - an essential when self-catering. Anthony was a great host and when we looked for some extra pillows they were delivered the next day. We are used to a large shower at home and found the shower enclosure quite small - with a little tweaking when the bathroom was being designed it could have been better. We were there 10 days in the middle of June, so initially the apartments were not all full, this suited us as it meant the place was quiet and we could do what we enjoy most - lay by the pool with a good book, or listen to home radio on the wi-fi which we found very good. The adjacent open air church provided great entertainment with weddings every few days. We loved the peace and quiet of this accommodation with just the church bells chiming each quarter hour to remind us we were in Italy. The pool although unheated was still quite pleasant to swim in. As we were early in the season the Lido constructed adjacent to the Santa Tecla Village harbour was not yet open. This would be the best place to access the sea if you want to swim there.
The village itself was small and a little dissappointing in resources. There was a small supermarket (Deco), a bakery and a few restaurants which were either seafood or pizza places. The streets are narrow and there are no paths to walk on from the apartment into Santa Tecla - and Italian drivers take no prisoners. For those serious self caterers there is a large supermarket in Acrieale in the Cyclops shopping centre - this may be a welcome break from the hot midday sun as unlike Deco in the village it is open all day until 9pm. The road to Acrieale is a narrow road with some hairpin bends on it - drive carefully. There are some nice villages in the area if you wish to have a day out alternatively a trip to Etna which is clearly visible (clouds permitting) from the apartments.
We were given fresh towels and bed linen after 3 days and maybe erroneously thought we would get a second change 3 or 4 days later but that was the only fresh sheets/towels that we got. I'm sure we would have been given some if we had asked.
