Prestigious and elegant Sicily villa in Etna area with a great view of Etna volcano and the Ionian sea up to the Italian mainland. The villa spreads on two levels: on the first one you will find a stylish saloon, a bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. On this level you also will enjoy a great view both of Etna and Ionian. An extravagant staircase, made with the wood of old wine barrels (take a look to the different colors of the wood due the kind of wine accommodated), leads to the second level where we can find a double bedroom and two twins, all with en-suites. On this floor there also is the access to the tower of this historic property (once it was the abode of an aristocratic Sicilian family that in this land made the wine). On the exterior of this gorgeous house we have a stunning pool area with a great view of the Ionian sea, that you can enjoy also from the terrace facing the saloon and from the BBQ area. We have also a football court and a big palmento (the place were once was made the wine) that presently is a sort of exclusive lounge that one can access from the first level of the house. The villa has also a fitness area. Welcome.

We are in Pisano, a small village between Etna volcano and the Ionian sea. Pisano, at that time, was the so called Bosco di Acireale, a forest narrated by many writers and scholars of the time and that you can still find in some place here and there (for instance in Pisano there is a public garden, Parco Pisano, with the original vegetation of the Bosco di Acireale). Etna park, with all its wonders, is 5 km’s away. Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, just 25 km’s away (have a bath to Isola Bella). The sea is just 10 km’s away: you won't forget Acitrezza. Catania is 15 km’s away: have a walk in Via Etnea up to Piazza Duomo, the heart of the town and where you can find a renowned outdoor fish market. Syracuse is almost 70 km's away: it's a great place, with an impressive history that we can admire visiting the archeological park and the downtown of Ortigia. And now, I introduce you my wife Silvana, the chef of Sicily, that we'll sugest you a delicious menù. "We are in Etna area and of course do not miss the pistachio: with pasta, as pistachio's salsa; or with a cornetto, as pistachio's custard. During summer you have to try also the pasta con i tenerumi (a vegetable) and, of coursze, the typical pasta in Catania, the Norma (aubergines, ricotta salata, tomato sausage). Fish for second course: pesce azzurro, (masculini, sgombri, aguglie ...) the typical fish of Mediterranean sea. Of course, you can't miss the Sicilian ice-creams and, most of all, the granita, maybe the most loved experience by the visitors. Do you want to have a breakfast like Sicilians do? Granita with brioche!"
