3 bedroomed apartment for 5 people next to the sea in eastern Sicily1852
The sparkling Ionian Sea and the Mount Etna rising in the distance provide the perfect backdrop to Villa Archirafi, a delightful apartment housed in a beautifully restored villa. It sits on the charming stretch of coast between Riposto and Acireale, in a residential area on the edge of the small and quiet fishing village of Torre Archirafi.
The apartment is on the first floor and is approached via its external staircase, allowing independent access from the rest of the villa which is occupied by the owner. It features bright, spacious and comfortable rooms tastefully appointed with functional furnishings. Outside the apartment, the two terraces overlooking the lush garden are ideal for alfresco dining or for whiling away the hours reading a book. Especially the partly reed-covered terrace offers a beautiful view of the sea and of its pebbly beach, which is easily reached on foot. Whereas the nearest sandy beach is in the close resort of Riposto.
Accommodation - size 90sqm - sleeping 5 people in 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms

The house and its location are wonderful, the owners who live downstairs are very kind and extremely friendly, even attentive in suggesting local specialties and places to eat.
If I can afford to make a suggestion, I would encourage them to install air conditioners in the bedrooms as well. For the rest, everything was perfect.
Maybe little bit boring this review; but all items related to this property are 5 stars!! Owner is very friendly and the residence is situated right at sea (no official beach). Big terrace with sea view and a second terrace for sunset and view on the Etna. Torrearchfari is a small town, restaurants on walking distance.
It is a house that offers unique emotions splendid terraces from which you can admire Mount Etna or you can have a boundless look on the sea, very comfortable private access to the sea.The house is treated in detail with taste and refinement.
THE WELCOME was superb. The owners are special people and they pampered us in every way. A home that remains in the heart!
