Villa overview

A remarkably restored villa on the slopes of the Etna. This 5 double bedroom abode sits elegantly overlooking a grand vista of the coast on one side and Mount Etna on the other. The property is surrounded by a lush garden which includes a lovely swimming pool and a 40 acre organic farm which has cultivated grapes, olives, fruits and herbs for the last two decades This house dates from the 1800s and is an important listed historical building. The owner has taken the utmost care and effort to restore this wonderful example of Sicilian architecture and turn it into a stunning holiday villa, where the traditional meets contemporary in harmony. Throughout the restoration the owner applied several sustainable and environmental measures with over 50% of the energy being supplied from renewable energy.

The house is made up 5 double bedrooms, three are located in the main building and two in a separate building. Each bedroom has its own ensuite with one having its own free standing bath tub in the bedroom. There are is a a grand living area with a fireplace with the cooler months. A suspended staircase leads to a breakfast room which originally was the old Palmento (wine press) which retains its original features.

The grounds produce an excellent extra virgin olive oil and there is an organic vegetable garden which are used to produce typical Sicilian meals for the guests (upon request). This region is also well known for its excellent wine.
