Via Nuova, 67 A, S. Maria degli Ammalati 95024 Acireale (Catania)
Immersed in a vast citrus grove among the scent of zagra and jasmine, the luxurious Verde Nobile Dimora di Charme is an ancient villa dating back to the mid 800, located on an acropolis between Etna and the sea and enjoys a splendid view of Taormina and the Calabrian coast.
An ancient belvedere offers breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The garden and the courtyard in summer become a large outdoor living room. Verde nobile has belonged to a family context for three generations and is an integral part of a farm of almost five hectares planted with citrus and olive groves and numerous fruit trees.
The farmhouse does not offer restaurant service, but a rich breakfast and welcome drink. Pets are not allowed.
Reopening in March 2021.
