The agriturismo

We are very close to the Etna, near Giarre. We offer hospitality on a 19th-century residence, with 12 hectares of citrus grove, organic certified in 2012, where we grow Navel oranges, Nova mandarins, lemons and pomegranates. We also own a strip of land nearby with olive grove, citrus trees, almond and pear trees.

The sea, between Catania and Taormina, makes this place perfect for a vacation in nature in one of Sicily’s most beautiful areas.

The accommodation

The owners warmly and cordially welcome guests: you may book B&B style or half-meal plan. Our breakfasts are hearty, with sweet and salty food, plus cold meats, cheese, grains, jams (homemade).

We offer 5 comfortable rooms and a mini flat. The rooms have period pieces, with private bath and shower, blow dryer, heating, desk, TV, air conditioned .

 

Our restaurant (open until 10 pm) offers seasonal specialties, genuine food, and Sicilian cooking, and you may dine outdoors weather permitting, refreshed by the air from the sea.

You may savor and buy our products: orange and lemon jam, extra virgin olive oil, almonds, fresh fruit (oranges, pears, mandarins, lemons).

Activities and surrounding

Eastern Sicily is full of wonders, starting with the Etna, the highest active volcano on the European continent. Many attractions to see: natural reserves, hamlets and towns with a rich past like Taormina (Greek theater), Catania with its homes in lava stone, temples in the Anapo valley, the extraordinary baroque art in Acireale.

The land is rich in certified products: almonds, pistachios, oil, honey, citrus, prickly pears. Without forgetting very fresh fish and wines from the Etna.

    "Beautiful accommodation"

    07/11/2018

    The property is very stylish, well maintained and exudes a great rural charm. It is located on a hill above the town of San Leonardello. From the terrace and the eastern hotel rooms you have a wonderful view of the sea and an old church in San Leonardello. The included breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice, home-made jam, cakes, café and cappuccino is served in a very nice sea view breakfast room. We can highly recommend the stay there :-)

    We spent one night here, and wish we could stayed longer! Giusi and her family was very very sweet and nice - her mother even baked me a gluten free cake for breakfast!
    Beautiful room and view!
    I would definitely like to stay there again!

    "Wonderful hospitality great place to stay"

    07/02/2018

    We had wonderful 3 days with Giusi and her family. This is a lovely spot - we enjoyed being among the citrus and pomegranate trees. The accommodation was excellent. If you get a chance definitely choose to have your evening meals, they produce fabulous food! Giusi and her team were full of helpful suggestions and particularly helpful with advice about where to find parking in Taormina and Catania. They are excellent hosts and gave us an excellent and very warm welcome to Sicily.
