You must have a car, otherwise you cant approach the tenuta. Hard to find it even with GPS, because the streets can be closed for traffic for recovery. Excellent location for visiting all the attractions on the east coast of Sicily. Magnificient views from the terrace and the pool. Breakfast is as anywhere in Sicily: cakes. But they are fresh...

We loved everything about Tenuta Santa Tecla: nice rooms, delicious breakfast buffet with a lot of options, great views, a nice pool and garden, friendly staff... we only heard a train coming by a few times during our stay, but otherwise it was as peaceful as one can imagine. Highly recommended!

Tenuta Santa Tecla is absolutely beautiful with large grounds and lemon and orange groves, a playground, a wonderful swimming pool and even a mini-zoo for children. The breakfast area is perfect, sitting on a lovely terrace with views across the island to the sea. Breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. There is of course wifi. The rooms are very comfortable... More

We immediately fell in love with the place upon arrival. The view is gorgeous, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the gardens surrounding the rooms are just heaven. We just didn't get enough of walking around and each walk we discovered a new spot. The owners were extremely friendly and helpfull and did everything they could to make our... More

Tenuta Santa Tecla is located close to Acireale and its position is very good to visit most of the major attractions on the east coast (actually we easily drove to Valle dei Templi and Piazza Armerina in one day... ). The hotel is really comfortable and clean and benefits of a spectacular view. The breakfast is genuine based on local... More

We got two rooms, one of which was a family suite, both were excellent. Our teenage kids got the family suite, each one got a double bad room. The family suite has a kitchen as well. A place to chill out. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast has home feeling. The place is isolated and you must... More

Tenuta Santa Tecla is just amazing. It is hidden away off the main routes, but is still only three minutes by car from the S114 road between Catania and Taormina – both cities just at a 20-30 minutes drive-distance away. Once you pass through the gate, you enter into paradise. It is a large estate, filled with beautiful trees and... More

This is the place to be if you want to De-stress. Warm people in a warm environment give your holiday extra value. Do use a GPS to manage your way in/towards the area. A quiet, peaceful and relaxing place. Evidently, well planned to make clients feel at home. Angela and her husband Fabio are helpful at all times. Adorable Nicoletta... More

To begin with, let’s be candid: this place is, as they say, in the middle of nowhere. This can be either good or bad, depending on what you want. It was very difficult to get to (we got lost trying to find it, despite google maps), the road to it is not for the faint of heart and you need... More
