Description

Imagine the perfect country scene. One side facing green valleys sloping down to an intense blue sea coast, running from the stunning sandy bay of Taormina to the black rocks of southern cost. The other side ...the powerful strength of a never sleeping volcano, that at times rumbles but always intrigues the ones who look at it from a distance and those who trek along its paths....
Imagine your sunny breakfast on the terrace with a stunning view of the sea. Miscarello is known as Giarre 'terrace' and you will find out why. The house is relaxing and peaceful and it has plenty of space for kids to run and play. The groud around is planted with cherries and during the cherry season you can daily pick them up from the trees or collecting chestnuts or blackberries on nice walk near the house. Within a 15 minutes drive from the villa you will find all sort of fruits, vegetables, local cheese maker, butcher, local fish market, honey producer and of course wine maker to test all

Location description from owner

The Sicily region

Sicily is internationally renowned for its history and beauty, for the smell of lemons and oranges you can breath everywhere on the island, for the friendly hospitality of its inhabitants, for the clear blue sea coasts, for the highest volcano in Europe, and, last but not least, for the special food you can taste, for its fish and the sweets.... and for many other reasons.
History : In the past Sicily has been dominated by many Conquerors : Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Spanish. Wherever you drive in Sicily, you can see the remains of each domination.
In 30 minutes drive you can visit the Greek theatre in Taormina, a village famous all over the world for the beauty of its houses, its shops and the charming atmosphere you can breath when walking along its small and charming lanes.
In 40 minutes drive you reach Catania, one of the biggest town in the area. A walk in the town centre will be very interesting : you can see the remains of a Greek-Roman theatre, the Cathedral, Castel Ursino ( which is a fortress built around 1240 to protect the city from the sea and then used as a royal residence and as a prison), the Bellini Theater (opened in 1890), with its wrought iron in the portico and very beautiful inside, where you can admire the 4 tires and a gallery, corridors and frescoed ceilings.
One of the most attractive places to visit in Catania is Via Crociferi, a true triumph of 18th Century Baroque Style, with its opulent line of religious buildings. Very interesting will also be a visit of the Botanic Gardens, spread over a surface area of 16,000 square meters, where exotic, rare, aquatic and Sicilian plants are grown. If you visit Catania in February, you can't miss the feast of the Saint Agata, whose statue is carried for 4 days along most of the streets of the town, followed by thousands of people. However, anytime of the year you're in Catania , we recommend a stop in the typical fish market.
In 1 hour drive is Siracusa, one of the most famous town in Sicily. You can visit the Greek theatre and the Roman amphitheatre, where Greek tragedies are played according to the ancient tradition. You should also visit the isle of Ortigia, the nucleus of the old city. It's a very nice tourist place for relaxing walks along charming lanes, while visiting interesting museums and beautiful historical buildings.
If you want to go on visiting the remains of the island's Conquerors, you could drive to Agrigento ( 2 hours by car) and see the Valley of the Temples, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world and a Unesco world heritage site since 1998. In the Valey are still sited the great temples of ancient Akragas : the temple of Hera (Juno) Lacinia, Concordia, Heracles (Hercules), Olympian Zeus (Jupiter), Castor and Pollux (Dioscuri) and Hephaistos (Vulcan).
THE SEA : In Sicily the sea is very clear and mostly clean. In the nearby of the house you have different kinds of coasts. In a short drive ( min 15 minutes, max 30min ) , you can choose among white sandy beach , small-stony beach, or rocks . If required, there's also the opportunity to rent a sailing boat for daily trips.
THE VOLCANO : Etna is the highest volcano in Europe, since it's around 3330 meters high. If you want to have a look, there are many paths you can walk along in a short time. There's also the possibility to drive up close to the main crater, only with the authorized means (daily transfers are organized on request).
FOOD : Sicilian cooking is famous for many reasons : for the smell and taste of its fruit and vegetable , grown in sunny gardens and collected only when ripe enough to be at their best ; for the fresh fish and mussels you can buy in the typical fish markets, where is not rare to find live octopus or prawn, so fresh that can be eaten uncooked ; for the ice creams lovers ,we recommend to taste the 'granita', a typical dessert which is usually eaten at breakfast, accompanied by what we call 'brioche' , a sort of sweet bread you can't resist .

Giarre

Our country house is peacefully situated half-way between Volcano Etna and the eastern sea coast, 5 minutes drive from the villages of Macchia and Santa Venerina. In 20 minutes drive you can choose whether to be climbing on the volcano or swimming in the blue sea.
Very close (10 min by car) is the village of Giarre, very nice for its shops, and the village of Riposto, with its international ship port, where you can relax walking on the pier close to sailing boats and yachts, or decide to rent one of them for a daily trip.
In 15 min drive is Acireale, a small town famous for its baroque buildings and church paintings. For the ice cream lovers, there's a great variety of tastes. If you want to taste the best granita, this is the right place. The guests who visit the town in February will be amazed seeing the Carnival with its flower cars and masks.
If you love island legends, you should visit Acitrezza ( 20 min drive), a characteristic village of fishermen , where Omero placed the setting of one of the stops Ulysses made on his long journey back home to Itaca.
