In a beautiful setting, nestled between sea and mountains, at an altitude of 610 meters, in the tourist village of Pedara, and near the southern slope of Mount Etna, (adventive cones in the area of the Monti Rossi came out from which the eruption of 1669), stands this elegant old structure at the end of 800.

The building, subjected to recent renovation and with an high attention to details, is ready to immerse you in a timeless place of culture, classics, history, where traditions seem to have remained unchanged.

The Palace offers you the opportunity to stay in two comfortable apartments, the "Gulf" and "Etna", independent and equipped with every comfort to enjoy your holidays both in winter and in the summer, thanks to the suggestions that the site makes every time of year.

The historic building, thanks to its strategic location, offers the possibility of being joined in less than 30 minutes drive to the volcano Etna, a place of continuous guided tours, and its ski plants (open only in high season), and enjoy breathtaking scenery unique in the world, where the majesty of the volcano, the more 'active and highest in Europe, intersects with the splendor of the waters of the Gulf of Catania, creating a fascinating and unusual scenario.

For art lovers, the city of Taormina and Catania, which is only 13km from Pedara, offer a rich panorama of Greek art and Baroque churches, palaces, monuments and ruins of ancient Greece, giving a perfect combination of modernity and classicism.

"Fantastic accommodation ,wonderful hosts - we will come again. Brilliant thank you"

Absolutely wonderful accommodation with lovely people running it . Thanks goodness their English was better than our Italian. Ninnie and Christina are fantastic hosts . The views from the roof terrace are spectacular - helped by the fact that Etna was erupting .

The refurbished winery is a site to see. 10 years of dedicated hard work has paid off .

In fact the everyone we came into contact with was vert welcoming - try the local wine from the green grocer down the road 3Euro for a very drinkable litre and a half of red wine . And fruit and veg so fresh and cheap.

Would more than recommend this accommodation and location to anyone thinking of going to Sicily. Only caution is driving in Sicily is not for the faint hearted...... You need to become a very aggressive driver who thinks they have right of way all the time . If you don't you will spend your holiday sat at a junction as there is obviously no word for 'give way' in Sicilian .

"19th century winery at the foot of the vulcano"

We've had five wonderful days at Tocco e il Palmento Silvestri. De town of Pedara is a pleasant surprise in the endless (ugly) suburbs which surround the south slope of mount Etna. Hostess and host Cristina and Ninni are most friendly. The accomodations are situated in a former winery near the centre of the town. There is appartment on the groundflour, which is the original 19th century state. We stayed at a modern appartment on the top flour. As guests you can freely visit the old winepress, the garden and the roof terrace, from which we had a bewitching view on the glowing vulcano at night.
