The agriturismo

It is a “palmento” of the nineteenth century (old lavic stone structure used to press and store wine, for working, enjoying, meeting people) located at Puntalazzo, a small village at the floor of Etna, facing the sea in a panoramic position between Taormina and Acireale, a “Palmento”: it keeps untouched, still nowadays, the fascination of that time.

The accommodation

Large and lightly rooms show a panoramic landscape of the coast and join the old tradition and charme of typical furniture, hand wrought iron and solid chestnut-wood, to the most modern comforts (air conditioning in some rooms, TV Color, phone, frigo bar).
Comfortable flats are also available with kitchen and private areas outside.

The restaurant, with its arcades and floor in original lavic stone, will let you discover the most authentic flavours of Sicily.
At guests' disposal, beside the restaurant and the bar with the still untouched and big wine press, the small rooms, where the grape-must was left to rest and which still smell of wine, today TV room and reading area.

Activities and surrounding

Excellent place of holidays for people looking for a comfortable atmosphere, minimal but rich of special signs, it offers relaxing holidays at the discovery of the typical places and flavours of this area, and thanks to its favourable position it also offers adventurous expeditions from the craters on the top of Etna mountain, to the transparent depths of the coast.

At guests' disposal: park for children, ping-pong, green areas and lanes, car parking, beach, ideal point of start to reach some of the marvellous places of Sicily: the natural beauty of Etna park, the Gole of Alacantara , the beach of Cyclopes and the cities of art like Taormina, Catania, Siracusa and Agrigento.

Poor
We went to have lunch in this structure yesterday on the 1st of May ... little lunch as quantity, the food was fresh but lacked in flavor, slow service and poor staff. The price of 30EUR asking for food is not worth it.

Reply from the host
Agriturismo La Pietra Antica O Munti answers
Dear customer, we thank you for dedicating us your precious time. We are sorry to read his disappointment on the lunch of May 1 but it is unclear (perhaps a bit 'premeditated) why he decided not to communicate directly yesterday when we repeatedly went to the tables to ask how it went: certainly if there he asked for an encore we would have brought it to him! Why would we ever have to say no: would he immediately realize that he had enjoyed our cuisine and what better gratification for us? On the slowness of the service let us judge who reads us: having started at about 13:00 and having served the cake at 15:00 can be judged slow? Definitely yes for a fast food !! Let's still judge who reads us: having fresh food (as you yourself admitted) and quality, first courses of fresh pasta exclusively handmade by ourselves (the strascinati with pistachio of Bronte, bacon and cream, were made one to one by hand - we are not joking or exaggerating: we invite you to visit us to see with your own eyes), taste the flavor and authenticity of the products used, not having any kind of precooked or canned food ... not worth what you pay with water, wine, coke, coffee, bitter and anything else included? However we always regret when we fail to satisfy one of our customers and we always take into consideration the criticisms received because sometimes they can be useful to improve. Thanks again for your time. The Director Nunzia Coco
