The architecture of the house is typical of the Etna rural areas, assembled with lava stone. This house, thanks to its position at 750 m a.s.l., is fresh and breezy even in the warmer months, ideal for those who wish to relax surrounded by unique panoramas, but it is also an ideal starting point for visiting the surroundings. Etna with its wonderful craters and guided excursions from the base point at 1,700 m up to 2,500 m a.s.l. l, from which you can admire a breathtaking view of the eastern coast of Sicila, with a view extending up to the Aeolian islands and the strait of Messina, is at 40 minutes by car. The charming Taormina at about 35 km is reachable in about 20 minutes by car. From here you can also visit Acireale and the Cyclops Riviera, Acitrezza with its rocks Faraglioni, Acicastello and Capomulini. The beaches of the east coast such as Fondachello, Cottone or San Marco with its characteristic castle on the pebble beach, can be reached in about 20 minutes. An excursion to the lively city of Catania cannot be missed, with its 'liotru' (elephant symbol of the city), full of history, and the numerous places to taste the typical dishes of the place. The house is on two levels and offers a pleasant rustic environment, which features a sitting area, a comfortable kitchen with dining room, all redone with handmade terracotta material, from the floors to the kitchen tiles.. - Free parking on site - Bedlinen incl towels (included) - Pets: 1More
