This is our second visit and this agriturismo just keeps getting better. We stayed in an apartment for five. The apartment was simpel but had everything we needed. At the evening dinner we again tasted som of the finest sicilian cooking. Keep up the great work.

We stayed at Tenuta San Michele for my birthday in October, and loved it. We enjoyed the food in the hotel restaurant, and loved their wine. I would like to go back sometime when it's warm enough to use the swimming pool!

I fell in love with the place since the first moment, people are really nice, the room is like a little apartment with its own kitchen. Great for family or couples vacations. Food is really awesome (everything is local). Lovely ocean view. It's tricky to arrive.

We booked these apartments having previously stayed in similar Agriturismo in different areas within Italy. Whilst I would agree with previous reviews regarding the beautiful views, large areas for sun bathing, selection of sun terraces and lovely pool area I agree with previous reviewer who felt the rooms let it down. We were in apartment no. 1 which was very... More

we didnt stay at the hotel, but just dined at the restaurant. it was well worth the trip to Santa Venerina, on the slopes of the southern road to the etna. the small town itself is just 5 minutes from the Giarre exit on the A18 highway, but there`s a lot lot of climbing with your car from the centro,...

Our apartment was spacious and although no AC, there was a large ceiling fan which we kept on all night to be cool. The bed was comfortable and large.The pool area was very good and we enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace overlooking it - croissants, pastries, ham, cheese, eggs, tomatoes, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee etc etc!

Beautiful clean spacious apartments set in a vine yard. Plenty of areas for sunbathing Nice big pool for a cooling swim. Plenty of choice for breakfast, some thing for every one. There not much English spoken in the area, so brush up on your Italian.

Located on Sicily's East Coast, on the side of the active volcano, Mt. Etna, is Tenuta San Michele that has belonged to the Barons Scammacca del Murgo for generations. The farm has been actively producing and selling its wines locally for decades, but after an earthquake rendered their home uninhabitable in 2002, what didn't kill the Scammacca's will to maintain...

What a great find....a "real" vineyard with exceptional wines, amazing location with spectacular views on Mt Etna, bundles of true warmth from the owners and well appointed apartments. If you like wines, good food and relaxed atmosphere then I would recommend San Michele 100%. We will be back for sure.

A working vineyard on the slopes of Etna; breakfast beside the swimming pool with wonderful views of the Sicilian countryside dropping away to the sea; an authentic Sicilian dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere; a large airy apartment, simply furnished with a fully functioning wet room; all excellent value for money. Our first impression of the apartment was not quite... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The San Michele estate is situated on the eastern slopes of Mt Etna in the area of the village Santa Venerina, at an altitude of about 500 m over sea level and on one of the main roads that leads to the summit craters.The winery and a part of the cellars are situated in an ancient building in the typical Etna style. The new cellar was built in 1999, in an innovative structure on two levels, in perfect harmony with the surrounding countryside.It is a family winery, active since 1860. Nearby other buildings surrounded by the vines are used for tourism. All around is the wonderful panorama that goes from the Taormina promontory to Capo Mulini. Mt Etna dominates this magnificent scene towering up to its summit at 3,300 m. The vineyards are in a single area, distributed on large terraces and cover 26 hectares. ... more   less
