Villa Rocca del Bagolaro is a holiday residence of the late nineteenth century, in a panoramic position at 850 meters above sea level on the southern slope of Mount Etna and surrounded by a large private park with swimming pool and garden equipments.
The property has been recently refurbished and it retains some quarters with high vaulted ceilings decorated with period furniture. The interiors are well maintained and include two double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, one bedroom with two single beds, a kitchen, a living room and a dining room overlooking the panoramic terrace which offers a beautifull views of Simeto river valley
Outside there are a charming dependance with double room and private bathroom, the parking, a beautifull swimming pool carved in the lava rocks, a large solarium equipped with deck-chairs and sun parasols, a barbecue area and a playing area with rubber floor.
The special climatic conditions of the area, the ample shade of the park and the ancient walls of the dwelling ensure pleasant temperatures throughout the summer, so as to make it virtually unnecessary to use air conditioning.

The large park that surrounds the villa, guarantees a stay in complete privacy for those who love peace and quiet.

With about an hour's distance by car you can explore most of central eastern Sicily as Taormina, Syracuse, Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone
