The agriturismo

The agriturismo is the Baronial mansion of the Nicolosi Asmundo family, built in 1800 and recently restored, preserving its classic Sicilian design with vaults in lava stone.

The accommodation

The agriturismo offers two large communal rooms and four bedrooms with private terrace overlooking the sea and vineyard.

 

Guests may avail of a panoramic swimming pool in lava stone next to the vineyards, complete with spacious patio for sunbathing or for a cocktail at sunset.

 

The old winery can be visited with tastings of wines (Etna DOC wines, produced since 1727) accompanied by the chef’s own gourmet creations (using produce from the farm’s organic vegetable garden and other local products).

Activities and surrounding

Guests can enjoy a Wine Tour of the estate, which includes a visit to the historical winery, built in 1850 (one of the first in Sicily), and tastings of five wines produced on-site accompanied by a platter of typical local products. It is also possible to take a tour of the vineyards with a wine expert who will introduce visitors to the world of vine growing and wine.

Just 5 minutes from the agriturismo is the Etna Adventure Park which offers climbing and single-track cycling trails through the trees.

The agriturismo boasts a strategic position for visiting some of Sicily’s most interesting sites: Taormina, the Gole dell'Alcantara gorges, and Catania. Excursions up Mt Etna (by jeep and along hiking trails) are also organised.

    "dreamlike"

    07/25/2016

    The location of the property is at least as impressive as the rooms, the pool, the garden, the food and wine, and especially the staff! We had rarely seen such a relaxed and culinary exclusive holiday like in Villa Grande. Particularly noteworthy is Angela with her polite and happy nature and especially Alfonso, who worked for my husband of the occasion as a "private secretary"! A big compliment to the kitchen - the breakfast was perfect, for the excellent four-course menu in the evening just missing one's words. And as these great wines - Villa Grande is certainly us again !!!

    "A Magical Romantic Experience"

    11/22/2015

    This was like something out of a romantic movie. Thanks to Chef Julia, Angela and Veronica for making our stay here so memorable. The combination of atmosphere, food and hospitality turned our 2 nights here into an experience we will never forget. From the magnificent views and accommodations to the laughter and fellowship of our cooking class, this was a once in a lifetime vacation.

    "Getaway from 3.11.-06.11.2013"

    11/19/2013

    Fabulous accommodation with a wonderful view. Breakfast also very good for German claims. Room including the bathroom are tastefully decorated. The only (!) Deficiency, the rooms are not too big, you have problems to store the empty suitcase. The staff is super friendly. The restaurant was not open to our residence time, but on the occasion of the birthday of my wife, both were cooked just for us. The nearest restaurant is in the village, is recommended, but about 3km away. The location and size of the pool were great. For us, the holidays were very nice, because rest and relaxation were the focus. Maybe it was also something that we were all alone there, because the other three rooms were not occupied at this time! Resume: Be sure to go again!

    Hello Peter, it was really a great pleasure to make your acquaintance, you have entered immediately in tune with the spirit of the place. We love to pamper our guests without being intrusive and convey the love for our beautiful land. The Etna volcano is definitely a scary in some ways but it certainly has a unique charm. I am sorry that on arrival the kitchen was closed, we have only four rooms so our chef is available on request, list it on the site just because we want to give timely and transparent information to our guests. Thank you again for the nice comment and votro you soon! Barbara Nicolosi
