Barbeque underneath the olive trees on the main terrace while enjoying the breathtaking view of the medieval town of Castiglione di Sicilia and the rolling hills around. Hang out by the pool or enjoy a dinner at Antica Cavalleria-Agrihotel only 400m away.
The house has been built from grey lava stone and many original features have been kept.

Villa Etna is ideally situated in the vincinity of Taormina, isolated yet close to everything, Taormina and its beaches are only a 20 minute drive away. Other attractions include: the Picciolo 18 Holes Golf club, Mount Etna and Gole di Alcantara.
Lose yourself in the vast night sky, stargaze your evenings away and wake up to the sound and silence of the country side, in this little piece of paradise.

The Sicily region

Villa Etna is only a 20 minute drive away from Taormina and the beaches of Giardini Naxos. Catania is only 1 hour drive away.

Castiglione di Sicilia

Villa Etna lies 2km outside of the ancient town of Castiglione di Sicilia. You can take a stroll up to this medieval town or walk 10 Minutes down the romantic dry-wall-lava stone paths toward the Alcantara-River.

The area sourrounding Villa Etna mostly consists of beautiful Vineyards and ancient houses. Very quiet and peaceful. Except for the wine harvesting period when it seems that all of Sicily is busy in the vineyards harvesting the grapes to make the wonderful wines of the region.

“Rural tranquillity in beautiful surroundings set amongst Etna's foothills”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2015

Set among the lush vineyards and orchards at the base of Etna's volcanic foothills and with a view over the famous volcano Villa Etna offers peace and tranquillity in delightful surroundings. The beautifully restored property set in its own small vineyard is comfortable and welcoming. It is furnished and equipped in a manner that is sympathetic and appropriate to its age and location yet with sufficient modern conveniences to make your stay comfortable. Outside there are various shady spots and sunny terraces to enjoy open air living to the full. And if you fancy a swim the local Agriturismo property has a beautiful pool that guests may use free of charge. As you would expect in a rural location a car is essential but despite its secluded setting it is very well located to reach all the important tourist destinations. A wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy Sicily to the full.

“Very recommended”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2013

Charming villa with lots of character. Inside it is very tastefully decorated. The setting of the hous is just wonderful: on top of a hill in middle of a vineyard (literally starting at the foot of the house) with amazing views from the front of the house to picturesque medieval town of Castiglione and across the Alcantara valley to the rolling Nebrodi mountains beyond. The pictures online almost don’t do it justice…it is truly breathtaking (for city- people like us) The walled-in garden creates a lot of privacy…not that it is needed since the area is very much quiet and peaceful. Nice palm trees, Roses, Hibiscus and Oleander create a wonderful mediteraenean flair. There is also a highly recommended pool on the neighbouring grounds of Antica Cavalleria. It is only a 3 minute easy walk down the road from the villa.The local town of Castiglione was our favourite: whether for a coffee to start the day, winding streets to explore or for meals out. You have to be brave to go into a restaurant sometimes as they often look closed or empty but we ate at all those recommended and all were just wonderful. The villa is in a lovely non-touristy area, but yet the beaches and Taormina are only around a 30 minute drive away.
