The charming hillside setting of Mount Etna with its vineyards, orchards and low stone walls forms the backdrop to this beautiful country house situated close to Trecastagni, a small village on the south-eastern slope of the volcano, just 15 km away from Catania. Dating back to the 17th century, Palmento Monterosso has been expertly renovated to retain its old charm, character and original architectural features. Its comfortable rooms, carefully decorated with tasteful accessories and traditional handicrafts, merge the time-honoured past of the property with modern comforts into a warm and subtle atmosphere. This is accentuated by typical local features such as vaulted ceilings, terracotta floor tiles, wrought iron beds, stone door arches and majolica tiles. Outside a large, private garden and a patio with pergola are the perfect place to relax and enjoy the colour and fragrance of the Sicilian countryside. Located in a side street within close proximity of the natural attractions of the Etna National Park and of the wine route, Palmento Monterosso is the perfect base for enjoying delicious wine and gastronomy tours and exploring the stunning nature of this area. In the vicinity can easily be visited the close volcanic cones of Mt. Ilice, Gorna and St. Nicolò, the other nice villages on the slopes of Mount Etna such as Piedimonte and Zafferana, but also the renowned towns of the eastern coast such as Taormina, Catania and Siracusa.
