Tropical Paradise with 3 Buildings for You to Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Nuccio and his family have a wonderful treat for you to enjoy. It is their country estate which has 2 bedrooms and 2 toilets and shower facility both inside and outside of this main building. Giant living room and super modern TV make for very comfortable living. The outside shower was the have green grass all around you and look up to Mt Etna off in the distance smoking away at you! The beds were very comfortable .

The kitchen was a separate building with oodles of space and large table for 6. Modern kitchen and dishes and pans to handle all situations. We cooked in for most all meals and enjoyed being there .

There is a 3rd building that has separate shower/bathroom and bed for the 3rd bedroom in Nuccio's wonderful layout. Anyone staying in this separate bedroom area would be very pleased!

The photos show a wonderful pool that is gigantic! It is set in a circle of hibiscus plants that are just stunning! Hope they are flowering when you are there! We relaxed and enjoyed the pool a lot. The parking area is secured with a locked metal gate and chain to keep the gate secure. Lots of room including chickens and a beautiful peacock who holds court with you.

We enjoyed our stay and are ready to come back. Probably the nicest facility we have stayed at in our traveling in the past 10 years!

Vacanze da sogno!

  • 5 of 5

Che dire.. Nuccio e la sua famiglia sono fantastici!! Siamo stati accolti benissimo. Nuccio ci ha dato tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno. La casa é magnifica ed é organizzata benissimo. Troverete tutto quello che vi serve per trascorrere un soggiorno in pieno relax. La piscina é splendida, il giardino curatissimo, gli interni arredati con gusto. Le foto corrispondono esattamente alla réalta.

I miei amici francesi erano entusiasti del posto. Svegliarsi la mattina ed avere una vista da sogno sull'Etna non ha prezzo!!La consiglio a tutti i viaggiotori che vogliono scoprire questa zona della Sicilia!

Grazie ancora Nuccio!!

Une maison et un jardin exceptionnels

  • 5 of 5

La maison et son jardin sont magnifiques et les photos idylliques sont totalement conformes à la réalité.

La maison est très adaptée pour deux familles car il y a deux lieux de vie indépendants. La vue est également exceptionnelle car on peut voir l'Etna fumer tout en se baignant dans la piscine ! Enfin, les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et accueillants.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

When you look at the pictures you can’t believe some place would look as fantastic in real life, but this house and garden does.

We had the most amazing week and have not one single slightly negative remark about the stay. The house is perfect, our little girl loved the garden, pool and the animals and the family who owns the house is the nicest and most helpful people I have ever meet.

This was really the perfect getaway for a dream holiday. Highly recommended!

ospitalità fantastica

  • 5 of 5

La casa e il giardino sono stati i migliori che abbiamo affittato. Ogni morogn ottenuto il nostro pavone su una visita al tavolo della colazione. La piscina era di dimensioni perfette e la profondità. I punti di vista, il bellissimo giardino e la tranquillità ci ha fatto tutto relax. I proprietari ci hanno dato servizio incredibile e l'ospitalità.

perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a really nice place for a holiday. Phantastic view at one side Etna and to the side the sea. Wunderfull garden with swimming pool. It is exactly as shown in the pictures.

For cold time periode like march, april and later in autumn the house has an electro ofen and in the chalet is aircondition which can also be used as heating. Our daughter slept in the chalet and it was her own palace :-).

The kitchen is very nice beside of the main house and complettly equiped with everything what is needed.

The animals in the garden are perfect for children.

3-4 km around the vila are supermarkets and some restaurants which have good traditional sea food and pizza, pasta....

The owner of the villa and the complete family is very gentle and all were very helpfull.

Best rating for the house and the owners family. , Thank you very much for this great holiday.

Pozzillo (Pizziddu in Sicilian) is a fraction of Acireale, Province of Catania. It is located in the extreme northern part of the township, surrounded by citrus gardens, on the shore of the Ionian Sea. Is about 6 km from Acireale. Its name derives from the Sicilian Pizziddu which means small tip or small cape on the sea.

The village is built around the old church, which already existed in the sixteenth century, which stood right on Pizziddu and of which today no trace remains, the current church building in the nineteenth century is located in the center of the country, and is dedicated to Santa Margherita. More recently formed Pozzillo Superiore is about 1 km away, on the road to Riposto.


A Pozzillo is a source of mineral water slightly alkaline. The water, classified as magnesium-sulfate, was also taken through three artificial wells and bottled and marketed since 1926. The company Acquapozzillo could boast of having provided King Ferdinand I of Bulgaria, who knew the water during his stay in Sicily. The activity, which was passed to the Sicilian Region, has ceased in the 2000s.

Annually, over the last two weekends of July, it is celebrated the Feast of the Octopus (the penultimate weekend) and the Festival of the Swordfish (last weekend).
