This spacious property is located in one of Sicily's most coveted regions: it sits ot the east coast, at the foot of the magestic Etna Mountain, Europe's tallest active volcano, just 3 km from the sea and 17 km from Taormina, Sicily's most famous tourist resort. Borgo Aranci is a well-kept group of farmhouses set amongst a fragrant organic orange grove. The houses date back to the 18th century and have been beautifully restored and lovingly furnished. The property boasts far reaching views onto countless orange trees with the blue sea beyond, the mighty Etna, occasionally providing a sparkling fireworks show, and the Taormina hills to the north. An electronic entrance gate leads to the 3 ha property. As you make your way down the long drive you will see orange trees as far as the eye can see until you reach the houses with it´s simple facades, sun-bleached walls and dark green shutters. On arrival your focus will turn to the immaculate lawns and the inviting pool. Although there are three buildings, making it excellent for large parties, we only rent it for exclusive use, so you will never share pool or grounds with other guests if you rent the property at the normal listing price. You are welcome to choose if renting the property for a group of 10, 14 or 18 people. Rented all houses a total of 10 bedrooms (8 doubles/twins and 2 single bedrooms) and 6 baths are at your disposal. Fine materials, typical for the region, have been used for the restauration: the floors were laid with hand-made, square terracotta tiles in warm colors. Polished, silvery-gray lava stone has been used for the terrace. The kitchen cupboards are made of white, enameled, fired slabs of lava. Hand-painted tiles decorate the white ceramic panels on the bathroom and kitchen walls. The terraces have shadow roofs, are equipped with beautiful garden furniture, and there is a stone barbecue. The property is reached by a long track running through the organic orange groves and boasts fabulous views in all directions. The pool is 2 m deep. It offers a magnificent view of the grove and the sea. There are plenty of shaded areas for al fresco dining and relaxing whilst enjoying the views of the surrounding countryside and the sea. Guests are welcome to make use of herbs, fruit and vegetables from the estate's organic kitchen garden. The grove is full of many different fruit trees from peaches and cherries to pears, apricots and figs. Enjoy your breakfast orange juice fresh from the tree - from October to April. Daily maid service and cook available on request. The discreet and helpful owners usually occupy a fourth property on the estate but the use of the gardens and swimming pool remain exclusive to guests. A motorway running several hundred metres behind the house does not impair the fabulous view, but may be audible if the wind is blowing out to sea. In our opinion, and in those of clients that have stayed here, it does not disturb. The oranges in the grove are harvested, those from the trees near the house are left hanging. The orange harvest takes place between mid April and mid May, and during this time, the nearby country road witnesses a rise in traffic, namely the vehicles transporting the oranges.
