Torre Archirafi

Fabulous terrace with sea views – Direct sea access

Acireale - East of Sicily



The sparkling Ionian Sea and the Mount Etna rising in the distance provide the perfect backdrop to Torre 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. Torre Archirafi is also an excellent base for enjoying delicious wine and gastronomy tours and exploring the stunning nature, historical and artistic attractions of this area. For visitors who want to travel around, the mount Etna with its villages along the wine route is not the only great attraction - why not take a trip to the sights of Taormina, Aci Trezza and to the baroque pearls of Acireale, Catania, Syracuse and Ortigia.

    Eine wunderschöne Wohnung in einem traumhaften Garten, die keine Wünsche offen gelassen hat. Perfekt eingerichtet - es mangelte an nichts! Highlight waren die Terrassen mit Blick auf den Etna und auf das fantastische Meer. Ein eigener Zugang zum Meer war unglaublich - wer hat das schon?! Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und den Aufenthalt in vollen Zügen genossen. Die Vermieterin war so herzlich und hilfsbereit - wir kommen wieder! A beautiful apartment in a dreamlike garden that left nothing to be desired. Perfectly furnished - nothing was missing! The highlight were the terraces with a view of Mount Etna and the fantastic sea. Own access to the sea was incredible - who has that?! We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay to the fullest. The ownerin was so welcoming and helpful - we will be back!

    La casa e la sua posizione sono stupende, i proprietari che abitano al piano di sotto gentilissimi ed estremamente cordiali, anche premurosi nel suggerirci le specialità del luogo e i posti un cui andare a mangiare. Se mi posso permettere di dare un suggerimento, li inviterei ad installare dei condizionatori d aria anche nelle camere da letto. Per il resto, tutto perfetto.

    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.
