Description
Hello everyone! I too am a traveler like you, and I like to think of my home as a place where those who travel the world can find shelter, feeling the warmth of a home around them.

The B&B that I have created has turned into, day by day, year by year, a meeting point, a place to exchange information, impressions, and stories.

We decided to name our B&B after the story of Aci and Galatea. This legend has a Greek origin and explains the wealth of fresh water sources in the Etna area, including Acireale.

The legend tells that, following Aci's death after various adventures, Galatea's endless weeping aroused the compassion of the Gods who wanted to alleviate her torment by transforming Aci into a beautiful river that descends from Etna and flows into the stretch of beach where the two lovers used to meet.

We will host you in a cozy and refined late 19th-century dwelling. The rooms, comfortable and well-furnished, ensure a pleasant and relaxing stay.

On the terrace, you will enjoy our Mediterranean breakfast, enriched by the renowned Acese pastry, and in the evening, wrapped in the scent of jasmine, the city will bid you goodnight with its illuminated domes.

We have two double rooms and one triple room, all carefully decorated and furnished: each room is equipped with heating, air conditioning and a comfortable private bathroom with shower.

Autonomous entrance keys to guarantee maximum independence in managing schedules.

The structure is equipped with free Wifi internet network to allow our guests to connect to the internet, check their mail, and stay updated.

On the terrace you can enjoy our Mediterranean breakfast, savour the renowned pastries of the Acireale area and, in the evening, with the scent of jasmine, the city will bid you good night with its well-lit domes.

Two generously-sized double rooms and one triple room: quiet, well-lit, with scenic balcony, refined atmosphere and well-groomed details.

Each room has independent heating, air conditioning, television and a comfortable private bathroom with shower.

I had a very pleasant stay at Daniela and Giulio's place: I came for work and could enjoy it almost as a holiday! Giulio and Daniela have been very welcoming, providing answers to all my questions (including advice on restaurants, places to visit), the breakfast on the terrace is great and the room was pleasant as well. The only minor drawback was the quality of the wifi, not working inside my room (it is probably OK in other rooms, I don't know). Otherwise it was perfect.

The answer from the host:
Thanks for the great review! we are happy that you enjoyed your stay in our B&B! sorry for the problem with wifi in the room, unfortunately just in your room there is not always a good reception, but we are providing. Thanks again and next time! Daniela and Giulio.

I thank Daniela, for her infinite hospitality, thanks to her love for her land she was able to give us special moments in her B&B. The rooms are cozy, excellent taste in the furnishings and the breakfast with typical products on that fantastic terrace, gave us a fantastic good morning every morning!

Abbiamo soggiornato ad Aci e Galatea solo per una notte, ma ci siamo trovati benissimo. Il B&B è a 5 minuti a piedi dal centro e a 20 minuti a piedi dal Palasport (qualora soggiornaste ad Acireale per vedere un concerto come noi). L'interno del B&B è arredato in modo molto ricercato, è pieno di oggetti curiosi, e libri sparsi per la struttura che si possono prendere e leggere liberamente. La colazione è stata abbondante e molto buona. Abbiamo chiesto alla padrona un latte alternativo (in quanto intolleranti) e ci ha portato un buonissimo cappuccino fatto col latte di mandorla. Veramente tutto perfetto.

La struttura, tranquilla e accogliente, si trova nel cuore di un'antica città barocca: un tuffo nel passato opulento della nobiltà antica. La signora Daniela, sempre disponibile e discreta, si è rivelata un supporto importante per le nostre necessità. La struttura è pulita, curata e dotata di quanto può rendere gradevole il soggiorno. Ma la prima colazione è il top!
