Catania villa description

Enjoy the weather and scenery of Sicily in a superb active olive oil and wine producing estate overlooking stunning Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The property is quiet and has breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and all the amenities of a 21st century lifestyle. It is close to the beach, medieval villages, and ancient ruins; and, of course, an active volcano. It is an ideal villa for a group of friends or a large extended family and is equally suited for relaxing days around the pool, hiking along the many trails or sightseeing at the local destinations.
(6 hectares) It is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, immediately around the villa are grassy expanses and a private garden of about 3,000 m2. The Manor house dates back to 1870, has three levels and smooth exterior walls. There is a tennis court that can be easily booked upon request. The private salt water pool, with panoramic views, is L-shaped, and measures 15 meters x 6 meters. There are numerous sun loungers.

                          The villa is located less than four kilometers from Moio Alcantara, a small Sicilian commune where you’ll find a few shops and restaurants. Venture a little further and you’ll reach Castiglione di Sicilia, a beautiful town with a larger selection of shops, restaurants, and markets. The Cathedral Church is a definite must for site seeing while visiting as it dates back to the 18th century.
