Located in the historic property “Carranco”, owned by the Baroni del Castello di Randazzo, this Manor house dates back from 1870, when Baron Antonino, who was bored of living a flat town life, decided to find a unique spot to build his personal countryside residence. “Carranco” Estate is an active olive oil and wine producing Estate.

The Villa, which is surrounded by olive groves and 6 ha. of vineyards, features a private pool overlooking the stunning Mount Etna, the highest active Volcano in Europe.

The villa is set on Three levels and can be rented coupled with its “Dependance”, the Villa della Magnolia (2 additional rooms/bathrooms):

Outside – From the Private parking a pathway, paved with ancient lava stones, leads to the Villa passing through its closed Private garden of about 3.000 m2. From the front rose strewn balcony, steps lead down through the citrus grooves to the Tennis court, one of the unique features of this property. The splendid L-shaped Pool (15 x 6 m) is set in a panoramic position to enjoy, on one hand, the views of Mount Etna and on the other hand the Nebrodi mountains. Surrounding the Salt water, L- shaped Pool, a palm tree private garden area for a perfect relax. Several paths lead down through the vineyards and the olive trees to a two hectares Historic park with lush autochthonous vegetation and flowers, passing lawns and panoramic spots for reading.

Inside - The villa is hard to fault for beauty and quality. Fully refurbished in 2008 to an exceptionally high standard, where special attention has been paid to the use of antique and traditional techniques and local materials such as lava stonework from Etna, hand-made terracotta floors and walnut shutters. All decorations, furnishings and fittings are of impeccable taste and quality combining Ralph Lauren and Philip Stark modern designs with antique furniture and paintings. A perfect choice all year round as Heating and Air Conditioning are throughout. Amenities such as, Ping-pong, Satellite TV and Hi-Fi, among others, are meant to blend in a perfect balance the best of Sicilian traditions with the maximum modern comfort.

Ground Floor – Antique historic Wine making and Oil storage facility including and unique antique vaulted cellar.

First Floor – Two beautiful lava stone symmetric stairs take you up to the main entrance of the Villa. Receptions, all with vaulted ceilings, include a living and a dining area featuring an open fireplace, sofas and armchairs, a beautiful oval 700' dining table and a library with a reading corner. A very large, extremely stylish and professionally equipped kitchen (Miele) with another large dining table. Four master bedrooms with a unique view, each with its own en-suite top design bathrooms.

Second Floor – Leading to the second floor, a spiral lava stone staircase giving access to one double bedroom with bathroom and an 80 m2 top panoramic terrace lounge, which includes a large dinning table.

Dependance (Villa della Magnolia)- Adjacent to Villa dei Baroni, it can be accessed directly from a pathway inside the private garden, thus an ideal “Dependance”, featuring two double bedrooms, each with its en-suite bathroom and large private living room and kitchen with dinning area.

The Sicily region

Sicily is one of the Italian regions with the richest history. This makes it a perfect place to visit dividing your holiday time between: cultural activities and visits, discovering natural beauties (Etna Volcano and many natural parks), taking advantage of a beautiful sea and resting in the middle of a world class countryside. Not to speak about the amazing food and wonderful people who will make your holiday fantastic.

Castiglione di Sicilia

Carranco Estate is ideally situated in the surroundings of Taormina, discretely isolated and close to everything (Catania Airport, Taormina and its Beaches, the Picciolo 18 Holes Golf club, Mount Etna and many other world known locations of Sicily).

It has unique panoramic views (especially on Mount Etna, the village of Castiglione di Sicilia, the Mounts Nebrodi and, at night, the sky, featuring a complete map of the stars).

Its optimal location permits our guests to either move to make easy day visits of the beauties of Sicily, go for the day to the seaside in Taormina or to just stay at the Estate and relax.

Whatever your choice, we will be at your disposal to make you feel comfortable and at home.

A detailed routing ('Directions') will be sent to you at reservation, though, feel you are always welcome to call us, at any moment ,if you should need any kind of help to reach us.

Other Activities: Ping-Pong

Golf: Il Picciolo Golf Club

18 Holes Golf club just 10min away from the Estate.

Ski: Ski experience on the volcano

In the winter, when temperature and snow permits it is possible to have the best ski experience, descending on the slopes and craters of Mount Etna while watching the sea.

"Far too many irritations in the middle of nowhere"

The villa is basically not bad, but don't believe the website about how far it is from anywhere. It is down an unmade road that is over half a mile long, and 20 minutes drive from a shop or resta… More

a/ The distance between Carranco Resort and Viale Europa in Moio Alcantara (the closest village) is 3 Km and 7 minutes (as shown by Googlemaps)!
b/ The distance to Castiglione di Sicilia, Via San Vincenzo, where the closest restaurants are, is about 7 km and 12 minutes (as shown by Googlemaps)!
It is true that the Resort is beautifully isolated from noise and stress and this is precisely why our Guests love it: discretion and privacy of unique location.

c/ The Villa is rented either with 4 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms or with 6 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (2 additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are in the Guesthouse, which is just close to the main Villa).
The Guesthouse includes an additional independent part, with and independent entrance, which is used by myself (the owner) and my family. This part of the Guesthouse has no interaction whatsoever with the main Villa.
We love our guests and always try to do our best in order to give them the best time and experience, however, we do charge additional rooms.
d/ We do have a private Tennis court, shared between the 3 Villas (as stated in the Resort description).
e/ The quality of grass planted around the Villas is not the same as the small and short one on Golf courses greens.: it is kept a little longer because usually our Guests prefer it to be a little more dense. If our guests request the grass to be shorter we have no problem in cutting it.
e/ The roof terrace is beautiful (see pictures) and we usually light it with candles to allow the guests to see the beautiful sky full of stars! There is the possibility to put further lighting on the terrace: it is just a matter of asking our Caretaker.

f/ Our Caretaker, who is on grounds, always tries to keep our Guests satisfied and to help them organize their excursions, tours and hobbies. He makes sure maintenance is as good as it can be.

We live and work to make our Guests happy…
