This luxury property offers five bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, living rooms, lounge areas and a beautiful garden with a circular infinity pool and an original Argentine barbecue that promises fun for outdoor evenings.
An ancient oil-mill at the feet of the highest volcano in Europe, mount Etna, hidden in an amazing scenery that will capture all you senses: Rosemary, lavender, citronella, orchards, roses and palm trees surround this pink, charming luxury villa and two dependances that overlook a breathtaking view. Let your sight run to the sea, breathe the unmistakable scent of a typical Mediterranean countryside. Silent, secluded, but only 30 minutes away from the charming and spectacular Taormina, with its international crowds, renown beaches, music and art events, shops and night clubs, this luxury property offers five bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, living rooms, lounge areas and a beautiful garden with a circular infinity pool and an original Argentine barbeque that promises fun for outdoor evenings.
The layout of the property is charming and enjoyable, allowing you to share special moments with family and friends and still enjoy your privacy when desired. A restful patio with a shady lounge area will lead you at your arrival to an open kitchen with beams, separated by a few steps from a relaxation area with sofas and TV. A few steps more and a large luminous lounge hall with fireplace will welcome you in a coloured, comfortable atmosphere. Terracotta floors, wrought iron beds, white walls decorated by the paintings of Valentina Granata, a local artist in love with the volcano, the blue of the sea, the green of nature that peek out from every window: everything conspires to give the guests a unique feeling of freedom and poetry, inviting to a casual, Sicilian life style.
Sicily is a treasure chest that will all be at your disposal for a memorable holiday! Countless adventures and discoveries await you. Where the lava meets the sea you will find lively shores on deep, dark green and blue water. Refreshing swims, as well as a great tan are guaranteed! If you are in need of some fresher air, even in August, take your loved ones for an adventure that will be just surprising and unforgettable! Climb to the top of the volcano for a walk on the craters in a surreal lunar landscape. From there you will be able to see Sicily at your feet, with the view reaching the Eolian Islands on a luck day. Moreover, you will not be too far from the baroque Catania, the mosaics of Piazza Armerina, the famous cathedral of Noto, the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento: art, history and nature reserve surprises everywhere in Sicily! Not to mention food… In the evening let us book for you one of the best seafood restaurants on the coast, or else, have a quick dinner in Scillichenti with a bite of the famous “pane cunzato” to find out as simple, basic ingredients such as tomato, oil, cheese… can create poetry! Or go to Zafferana Etnea where “aunt Peppina” still makes the best fried pizzas ever! Dancing in Taormina can easily be the right after dinner, followed by a night dip under the stars at Isolabella. The problem is…nights in Sicily do not invite you to sleep. Rather, to taste them and enjoy scents and lights until sunrise, to welcome a new day and start over again, with the famous almond and coffee granita and a hot brioche…
