Casa Tecla, Santa Tecla, Acireale, Sicily   


A former fisherman’s cottage, Casa Tecla has been recently given a clever and  original  makeover preserving the best original  features whilst adding a modern and bright twist.  At the rear is a small and private garden, complete with (heated) jacuzzi pool. A little gate opens from the garden directly onto the  lava rock coastline with swimming directly from the rocks in the clearest of waters.



In the centre of the small fishing village of Santa Tecla which is strung along the coast below Acireale, it is just a short walk to a small choice of restaurants and pizzerias and a convenient mini market. Just  about midway between Catania and popular Taormina, this is an ideal base for exploring Acireale, the Cyclops Riviera and the slopes of Mount Etna.

Location of Casa Tecla
Acireale, Sicily

Acireale is an ancient spa town on the eastern coast of Sicily, 20 km to the north of Catania. Its history has been scarred by earthquakes and the volcanic eruptions of Mount Etna that have redesigned the area on several occasions. The most recent reconstruction – following the earthquake in 1693 – gave rise

Flights to both Trapani (TPS) & Palermo  (PMO) Airports

We don't book flights, we prefer to stick to what we love doing ( finding the best villas in the best places) below is  a rather good app showing flight routes, airlines, prices with links to the airlines to book.

 ** Top Tip **, if you avoid flying at the weekends or in different durations, 5,10 16 nights, flights are often a lot cheaper, and remember with Freelance you can arrive ANY DAY at our villas, good eh ...
