From our first meeting with Lilliana, the property owner who resides on the first floor, to the day we departed, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and were able to relax in the beautiful setting she's created. The gardens and grounds are lovely and the interior has everything you need. We were there for a wedding and had rented a car for the week so that allowed us to visit other towns in Sicily. Because there is not a great deal to do in Stazzo, I would just be mindful of needing either a driver or a car. We did enjoy walking to the Blue Bar, which is a two minute walk down to the sea, every morning for coffee and croissants which were awesome. For a group that wants to have a place to relax and unwind, this is the perfect spot. The pool area is perfect for doing just that and the views from the numerous terraces in the house are amazing. You will not be disappointed if you make this villa your home while visiting this beautiful island.
Exceptional, Historic Property
We were a group of 7 mature adults. Our stay was magical from the moment the gates opened and we met the welcoming owner. The grounds and accommodations are beautiful, well maintained and exactly as pictured. We loved looking at Mt. Etna, the sea and all the historical items within the home. We had a van and took day trips. We loved every moment and highly recommend this magnificent property, if you are fortunate to find availability. It truly was an exceptional holiday. Many thanks for sharing your amazing time capsule with us!!
Beautiful castle and location
My family and I have just returned from a week spent in Castello Claves. Although a little difficult to find late at night, it was well worth the effort. ( for those using Sat Nav, we found that if you enter 21Aprile 98 when you get to Stazzo, it does the trick). The house is stunning with a tree lined driveway leading up to an equally impressive residence. When we awoke the next morning, the views out to sea on one side and the views to Mt Etna on the other were also stunning. Liliana was the perfect host, unobtrusive, yet always willing to help when required. The castle has everything you should need, and the outside balcony is massive. The upper level is perfect for views and all day sunshine! The weather could have been a little kinder, quite cloudy on occasions but the last couple of days were gorgeous. The pool area is also impressive. I would say that car hire is a must, both for travelling to Stazzo but also for heading out and seeing stuff. The village is small with a coffee shop, a few restaurants, small shop and a takeaway. The nearest supermarket is a couple of miles away in Santa Tecla. Closes from 1.30 to 4.30 in afternoon.
Overall, we had a fantastic time in equally fantastic accomodation. If ever back in this area of Sicily I would not hesitate to stay again.
If booking car hire, I suggest booking directly with company you wish to hire through, and not through a broker! We witnessed a few difficulties with people trying to access their vehicles as the company you are dealing with cannot amend bookings made through a broker. Also, take out excess waiver cover. The roads are narrow and the drivers impatient!
Ein schönes Schloss
Wir haben den Urlaub im Schloss sehr genossen.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Castello. The place is like in a fairytale, the host is kind and helpful and the swimmingpool area outstanding.
The Most Magical Stay
We had the most wonderful holiday at Castello Claves. The castle, grounds and pool are even better than what the pictures show, and the location is ideal if you fancy a quiet, non touristy beach spot. Lilliana, who owns the castle and lives downstairs, was lovely, very hospitable and friendly, and happy to help us with anything we needed from organising taxis to ordering pizza!
All the rooms in the castle have great character, and the place is beautifully decorated. The tower rooms especially are magical, unlike any room i've slept in before, it really was a unique experience. The balcony space is huge and we enjoyed many delicious meals out there. The pool is a really good size too, surrounded by picturesque grounds and very comfortable sun loungers and beds. The sea is only 200 yards or so down the road, and the little town of Stazzo looks out onto it. There were not sandy beaches near us, but instead wooden structures on the volcanic rock that made it easy to climb down and go swimming. There were a couple of nice restaurants in Stazzo and little bars serving delicious granita on the seafront, but the best meal we had was at Lorenzo's in the neighbouring town of Santa Tecla. We ate incredible fish and seafood, and drank fantastic wine, all at a very reasonable price. The walk was only 25 minutes or so, and it was an easy amble down the little roads. We did not have a car during our stay, and if you wanted to go further a field it might be wise to hire one as transport links weren't great, but with the heat (37c some days), we were very happy to just enjoy the lovely grounds, pool and town of Stazzo. It was only 10 minutes to a little shop and to a few restaurants/bars, plus Lilliana can organise you a cab for a good price (we used this for airport connections, a bigger supermarket trip and a trip to the waterpark, Etnaland, which was great fun). We also enjoyed a snorkelling excursion with Mario, which was a really nice half day out.
All in all we were very impressed with Castello Claves and the surrounding area. Would recommend highly for families or bigger groups looking for a standard pool/beach villa holiday but with a Castello Claves with a twist.
Thank you Lilliana!
Stazzo è un paese che vive di pesca in bassa stagione e di turismo d'estate. Ci sono due porticcioli e vari ristoranti. Nei paesi vicini di Santa Tecla e Santa Maria La Scala ci sono ottimi ristoranti di pesce. Taormina e Giardini Naxos distano circa 25 km.
