The agriturismo

The farm is on the eastern coast of Sicily, at the foot of Etna, between Taormina and Acireale. The property stands on around 10 hectares of land cultivated with lemon, clementine, orange and olive trees as well as a range of vegetables.

 

The perfect holiday for those who love peace and quiet and nature, the agriturismo is strategically located close to the sea (just 200 metres away and accessible on foot), and also at the centre of the region’s main transport links, offering easy access to Etna and the area’s main tourist destinations. 

The accommodation

Surrounded by lemon trees, the apartments have been created inside old farmhouses which have been completely renovated. Guest accommodation is provided in four apartments, each with its own independent entrance. All apartments include kitchens with pots and pans and tableware, bathrooms with showers, refrigerators and TVs. Guests can also dine outdoors on the shaded terrace with tables and chairs.

One apartment has been adapted for guests with special needs.

Sun deck and outdoor shower.

Just 8 km from the main body of the farm, you’ll find a further two accommodation options: the Puntalazzo house and guesthouse. Located on the slopes of Etna, in beautiful scenery with views of the coast and the sea, a charming holiday spot nestled amidst fruit trees (apricots, cherries, apples and pears).

Activities and surrounding

30 km takes you to Catania, and 15 km to Taormina and the beautiful Baroque town of Acireale. 200 metres away there is a stunning sand and gravel beach: the coast is home to a range of seaside resorts with all the shops, services and restaurants you could need. The staff will be happy to recommend its partner trattorias and restaurants, where there may be discounts available for the agriturismo’s guests, the ideal place to enjoy traditionally prepared local dishes.

Guests can also purchase the farm’s own produce, including lemons, nova clementines, seasonal fruit, jams, oil and honey.

Giovanni Russo, the owner of Russo Rocca, and the inheritor of a precious tradition, will take you on a tour of the town's last distillery, "Galeano Mazzullo", founded by his great-grandfather and still producing spirits and liqueurs today.

    "5 days at the foot of L'Etnà in a citrus garden."

    10/01/2018

    Agritourism Gli Agrumeti sul Mare is located in a beautiful citrus plantation. Once in the garden you can enjoy the tranquility of the place and yet the place is strategic to discover the area from Tormina to Syracuse via Catania and especially the Etnà (that can be seen directly from the house) The equipment from the house are simple but sufficient. The welcome of Giovanni and Anna is warmest. They spent a lot of time advising us on places to visit and recommending restaurants and markets. A big thank you to them.

    "Beautiful stay!"

    08/12/2018

    My friend and I felt very comfortable. I especially liked the old fashioned kitchen and the cottage itself. Both of us loved the outdoor shower. Since we were always alone at the back, we used them extensively. Great were also the many geckos and lizards! Giovanni is very nice and picked us up from the train station and took us there again. Again a big thank you! The only downside was the bed, which unfortunately consisted of two single beds and horrible squeaky! My friend then put them together with cable ties, that was a lot better, but the squeaking remained. So a real double bed would be great.

    Dear friends, you are very nice. Thanks for the real review. Sorry for the creaking of the bed, there were loose feet, we went straight to fix it. If you had warned, we would have done it before. Now the bed no longer squeaks - We are still waiting for you to enjoy our mild climate, and our peaceful farm, see you soon Giovanni R. italiano Cari amici, siete molto carini. Grace per la vera recensione. Scusa per il cigolio del letto, c'erano i piedi allentati, Siamo subito andati a ripararlo. Be avessi avvertito, lo avremmo fatto prima. Ora il letto non cigola più - Ti stiamo ancora aspettando per goderti il ??nostro clima mite, e la nostra azienda agricola tranquilla, a presto Giovanni R.

    "Idyllic summer vacation"

    08/02/2018

    Dear Anna, dear Giovanni, many thanks for the wonderful stay in your apartment in Puntalazzo! The small village is located at the foot of Mount Etna, only 8 km from the sea and its surroundings are ideal for nature lovers. In the newly renovated and spacious apartment, which is ideal for families, we felt very comfortable. A highlight here was the terrace with sea view! In the courtyard there is a brick barbecue with seating; in the garden grow orange, lemon, pear, plum, apricot, nut, chestnut and cherry trees. Shops such as a butcher, a small supermarket and a café are all just 200 meters from the apartment. The hosts Anna and Giovanni were very sympathetic to us because of their warm and cheerful nature and gave us great tips on special sights of the region and restaurants. For us it was an unforgettable summer vacation in Sicily. Thanks a lot for this! Greetings Inge, Kurt and Hanna
