This beautiful and distinctive residence is situated in the small town of San Gregorio, in a hilly position on the first slopes of Mount Etna. The house is very well kept and fitted out, both inside and outside. The furnishings consist almost exclusively of valuable antique pieces and all the walls of the house are decorated with a large and important collection of modern works of art, making the property not particularly suitable for small children. The spacious garden is extremely well-tended and very pleasant with various areas that have been furnished for outdoor living. At the side of the garden, in a slightly raised position, there is a swimming pool with sun-beds, deck chair, table with 6 chairs and a large sun umbrella, as well as an outdoor shower with hot water, all of which is provided for the exclusive use of the guests.
The property is a short distance from the center of Catania which is approximately a 15 minute drive away. The coast includes the beautiful bathing resorts of the Riviera dei Ciclopi. The towns of Acicastello and Acitrezza are between 5 and 10 km away. The stunning town of Taormina is just 35 km away and can be reached in around 20 minutes. No stay is complete without a visit to the slopes of Mount Etna or an excursion to the shelters or the summit of the famous volcano. It is possible to organize guided tours directly with the owners of the house.
