The agriturismo, the result of the restoration of the original property, is located within the Etna Park, at 900 metres above sea level, on an estate spanning 17,000 square metres.
The complex is nestled in rural landscape, and follows the principles of sustainability, from collecting rainwater to using open fires to provide heating. Furthermore, our company is an organic farm.
The agriturismo offers ten beds, in one apartment and four independent rooms overlooking a courtyard.
Agriturismo Viola nel Parco guests can choose from a range of different activities, from tourist attractions to nature, fine food and wine and sports.
You can explore and discover the Etna Park on guided excursions, and admire all of its typical varieties of apple and cherry as you wander through the agriturismo’s two vegetable garden/museums.
The agriturismo is also part of the BikersHotel and Albergabici databases, as a top destination for cyclists and motorcyclists looking for comfortable accommodation on the road.
Just 15 minutes takes you to the sea, ski slopes and the base point for excursions to the Crater, while within a few dozen km you’ll find Taormina, Catania and Syracuse. Acireale and the beautiful Timpa Reserve are also close by, along with Arcitrezza and the Cyclopean Isles Protected Marine Area. Catania Airport is 40 minutes away.

At the foot of Etna, a comfortable stay in a typical cottage and run by a caring owner with his hosts. The setting is conducive to relaxation, rest and return to the source of a simple life. Beautiful walks and discoveries around the village and of course the possibility of excursions to Mount Etna.

This is a wonderful place to stay, in a beautiful setting where there is peace and quiet near Mt. Etna. Serafina is incredibly warm and kind as a host - she greeted us with a quick drink and a tour of her herb garden. The room was spotlessly clean and very cozy. There is a common space which was a great room to spend the evening, with beautiful outdoor patios as well. Serafina went out of her way to make us comfortable, I highly recommend!
We were with the family during the Easter weekend, Mrs. Serafina welcomed us, a person of rare kindness and courtesy, it seems almost to find a distant relative. The structure is brand new, all very clean. With night-time temperatures almost to zero, the rooms were warm and welcoming. Silence reigns supreme, one must almost get used to it. The structure is well organized with very practical common areas, there is a library where surrounded by silence and warmed by the fireplace you can immerse yourself in relaxing readings, a games room with table tennis, soccer and other pastimes. Breakfast very rich and genuine, we had lunch for Easter and great pesto hazelnuts that produce themselves. From the structure you can easily reach all the villages of Etna, as well as Piano Provenzana and Rifugio Sapienza. I highly recommend it to those who want to escape from everyday stress and find a little 'peace at the foot of the majestic and silent volcano Etna.
