Villa degli Allori
Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Located in the historic property “Carranco”, owned by the Baroni del Castello di Randazzo, this Farm 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 terrace overlooking the stunning Mount Etna, the highest active Volcano in Europe.
Outside – The front of the house private terrace has an unique view on Mount Etna. The Pool is only a few meters away, surrounded by beautiful lawns overlooking the Etna and not far from the Tennis court, one of the unique features of this property. 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. Heating and Air Conditioning are throughout (perfect for summer and winter).

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.
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.
