Whether you're here to work or to explore, you can embrace the magic of Sicily with ease in this cosy apartment. Just steps away from the Aci Castello seafront and packed with mod-cons, this studio has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Although this is a studio apartment, the bedroom and kitchen area are kept nicely separate, with plenty of room to whip up a light bite and catch up on some work around the dining table. With exposed brick and sleek finishes, it's a really great space. The bedroom is surprisingly large and made to feel even bigger by the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that lead you out to the shining jewel of the home – the balcony. The spacious balcony is a wonderful spot for enjoying the scenery with a fresh cup of coffee or fresh juice in the crisp mornings. You can even see the coast from here. The delightful beach is just a short walk away – the perfect way to round off a day of work. The historic town of Aci Castello has plenty of amazing restaurants to try, as does its neighbour, Aci Trezza.

Home truths

    If you're travelling by plane, Catania Fontanarossa is the nearest airport – it's a twenty-five-minute drive from this home

    This is a studio apartment on two levels – there are steps to reach the bathroom

    We think the kitchen is better suited to lighter bites than large meals

    Depending on preference, you might not find the air conditioning to be cold enough here

    This home is short on wardrobe space, so we'd recommend packing light

    We think this home is better suited to short stays – the kitchen is very basic
