The agriturismo

Old 19th century farmhouse on the southern slopes of Mount Etna, in an absolutely privileged position: 2 km from the village of Ragalna but also surrounded by a magnificent forest of ancient trees where the seasons are really lived with different and magnificent colors. The landscape is unique: from Etna to the Simeto river valley with its villages and from here to the sea and the city of Syracuse. The farmhouse is located in an old farmhouse, in the middle of a beautiful private park of 20 hectares in the Etna Park.

The accommodation

Boscoscuro is an 1800 century farmhouse renovated into a guesthouse by 20 hectares in the Park of Etna, 1,100 meters high in the woods of Monte Arso and only 1 kilometer from the village of Ragalna. In these ancient and evocative places, surrounded by unspoiled nature, we have created a haven for lovers of privacy and nature. The rooms are intended for hospitality were transformed into real works of art created by Sicilian artists and artisans, inspired by our history and our culture. Boscoscuro blends the typicality of art spaces and structure etnea functional design to conviviality, wellbeing and gastronomy. A place where everyone can feel at home and come together for a coffee, a good glass of wine, a typical dish of our kitchen or just wander and enjoy the sunset.

Activities and surrounding

Boscoscuro offers its guests a restaurant, with an excellent quality/price ratio, where only the freshest local products are served. The structure represents not only the ideal starting point for the main tourist destinations of eastern Sicily (Etna, Taormina, Catania, Syracuse, Noto, Etnaland Park, etc.) but also allows you to get to know an important part of the history and nature of Etna with short walks. Among these, for example: at 1 km the volcanic cone of Monte Arso of 500 B.C. and at the same distance the "Grotta Catanese", the largest cave on Etna.

    "A beautiful structure and an excellent restaurant"

    09/01/2019

    The structure is very nice, still have to finish some work (eg. swimming pool) that when they are finished I'm sure will make it difficult not to give a full 10 to this farm.

    The rooms all have a theme and are really nice and pleasant.

    The place is located on the slopes of Etna and from the terrace there is a beautiful view of the plain below.

    In the evening you can enjoy an absolute peace and silence, the only sounds you hear are those emitted by birds that inhabit the beautiful forest that surrounds the structure.

    Horace is a great cook (as well as guest of extreme kindness and helpfulness) and I recommend everyone to try his proposals in the evening at the restaurant.

    "Total Relaxation and a Real Wood"

    03/13/2018

    We went in family with friends, children and dog. A brand new structure and very nice as well as the view, some "details" still being completed but apart from that the atmosphere is just pleasant, but especially the hospitality of Frederick (the owner) was exceptional, made us feel as if it were our place. We will return when the snow arrives.
