Santa Venerina, Province of Catania, Sicily
Located halfway between Catania and Taormina, near the village of Santa Venerina, this secluded rural retreat is immersed in an evergreen 4,5 acre lemon grove on its own hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea and Europe's biggest volcano with 360-degree stunning views.
