via San Giovannello 1B, Fleri 95029 Viagrande (Catania)
19th century residence of historic and cultural interest, safeguarded by regulations governing Cultural Heritage, located at the foot of Mount Etna in the Viagrande territory. Set amid the uncontaminated nature of the Etna Park, it is located just a few minutes from the sea.
Renovation of the ancient landed estate with stable, wine cellar and palm grove has yielded 9 comfortable living spaces with garden, all furnished in the Sicilian style. A breakfast of wholesome ingredients is served on the flower-decked terrace or in the special breakfast room when the weather is cooler.
The surrounding park has 50 different types of plants and centuries-old trees that cannot be seen elsewhere; here you can rediscover the scents and colors of uncontaminated sites.
At the farmhouse you can dive into the swimming-pool while enjoying a unique view, relax with a book in the shade of a century-old tree, venture out on horseback or bicycle or follow the mountain paths. In winter you can reach the Etna ski slopes.
Catania, Taormina with its lovely beaches and Acireale are just a 15 minute drive away. The area also offers suggestive tours of the Lava Museum or the Butterfly House.

Surrounded by nature and made from an ancient millstone, this wonderful farmhouse has allowed us to spend a fantastic afternoon and night with our little one.
The family management has made the whole thing really unique and particular. The food, prepared with dedication and taste by the owner for dinner, was excellent and really tasty, refined ingredients prepared with simplicity and love for cooking. Each course was presented and "explained" before we could enjoy it.
The location where we dined was overlooking the coast where you could admire the moon reflecting on the sea, a spectacle!
The most magical thing about the experience was the great silence surrounding the entire structure.
For our child, with pleasure, we found many games and carousels in the middle of the trees right next to the room.
The room is small, but absolutely comfortable.
The dogs present, 7 of them, have never given any bother, on the contrary they have been a pleasant company.
In the morning we could also admire the horses and a small donkey in the small stables of the farmhouse.
I think we'll come back in the future if only to escape the chaos of the city.

We (18 people) arrived on a heavy rainy day and were not allowed to access the house before we moved our cars to the good parking down the hill. We all waited under the rain while they parked the cars. Food was very cheap (particularly when you pay EUR30 euros per person for a dinner without wine). The first evening, we had pasta with ceps but could hardly see the ceps, then sausages with potatoes. The next day we had again the same sausages and potatoes in a pie. This is just unacceptable for the price. Some of us were also very unfortunate to find "worms" in their beds! When complaining our host told us that it was the "worm season"!
The only good thing regarding this place is Dino (Said) who was helping with the service. Dino was just outstanding, caring about our well-being, giving us good advice for tourism and restaurants.
Rooms are ok but rustic and cleaning is done every 3 days.
The hosts were extremely welcoming and very friendly. We had a fantastic meal on the day of our arrival and our rooms were spotlessly clean. It felt very homely and breakfast was served outside in the sunshine. We were able to arrange a guided tour of Mount Etna and were given top tips of places to visit. The dogs are always pleased to see you and very friendly.
Another fantastic meal followed the second night.
I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests' favourite thing about Casale Poggio del Tiglio is the warm family welcome.
