On the slopes of Mount Etna, amongst lemon trees descending towards the sea, nestles this charming farmhouse with private pool. Set in a commanding position, the villa enjoys magnificent views towards the sea and the coast between Taormina and Acireale. Recently and accurately restored it is the oldest part of the complex, consisting of the manor house, a wine press and various agricultural buildings. Great care was taken to preserve the character and charm of this dwelling. Dating back to 1700, it retains many of its original exterior and interior architectural features. The interior decoration, featuring terracotta floor tiles and select antiques, creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. Each room contains elements of traditional Sicilian style, such as the kitchen decorated with artisan-made ceramic tiles. Beautifully sitting in the surrounding landscape, this villa offers plenty of space and panoramic terraces overlooking the garden with lawn and Mediterranean plants and the pool, perfect for relaxation. The villa is an excellent starting point for exploring the Etna park and its villages, through interesting excursions and delicious wine and gastronomy tours. Also Catania, Acireale and the enchanting «Riviera of the Cyclops» are easily reachable by car.
