Overview

About the property

8 Sleeps, Trecastagni, Garden, Palmento, Farmhouse

A converted winery. It’s a uniquely Sicilian house built of grey lava stone, with the working of the wine press still visible in the cool, spacious interior. The property is located just 100 meters from the centre of Trecastagni, where you can find restaurants and shops.

The original farmhouse and wine pressing room have been restored to create comfortable living areas. The first floor of the farmhouse hosts the master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom and another bedroom with adjacent bathroom that is effectively en-suite if the 3rd bedroom on this floor is unoccupied. The second bedroom features a mezzanine floor (that could sleep two children if required). Downstairs is a living area on two levels. This used to be the wine pressing room. The upper level hosts a double bed, with curtains to create privacy. The window of this room offers a beautiful view on Mount Etna. The lower level has a cosy TV room with sofas and a fireplace. From the modern kitchen there is access to the terrace and the well tended garden with BBQ.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

What an amazing house, so glad we picked this house in this delightful

Little town. The welcome was fantastic, any problems we had were dealt with really quickly, we wouldn’t hesitate to come again. Great space for a large party of friends or family x

Living like a local

  • 5 of 5

Such a special place to stay in the beautiful village of Trecastagni. The decoration is very creative and there was a lot of luxury. We fell in love with the amazing garden where you have the perfect view at the Etna. The house is spotless clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful when I forgot my dress when we left the house, she personally brought it to Catania. She also made us feel very welcome with some fresh Pasta di Mandorla and a bottle of Sicilian wine. We recommend this property to everyone, specially if you would like to live for a few days like a local. The house is in the middle of the village and you can get in the morning fresh bread & coffee at a nice bar, just around the corner. Catania is near by and also the beach is easy to reach by car. We hope to be back sometime. Thank you for a great stay!

Chic rénovation of an old winery

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at the winery house, using it as a launching pad for excursions to Catania, Taormina and Etna. We loved the garden, fresh oranges and lemons, and the inventive use of space. There are some four bathrooms here and plenty of room for family. I came to Sicily to learn recipes and cooked at night so I have some criticism of how the kitchen was equipped, but it’s a beautiful, welcoming space with a great layout and access to the garden. The town is kind of bleh, but the views of Etna are unbelievable and we found a great butcher and a serviceable bakery. In any case the location was ideal for our exploration of eastern Sicily and the local hostess of the house made us feel very welcome.

Wonderful stay at the old winery

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Sara, who waited for us and showed us around the house when we arrived. We have had a wonderful stay in the old winery in Trescastagni. Large nice house, with plenty of space. Lovely with a well-equipped kitchen, cozy rooms and a beautiful courtyard. It's perfect with the private parking, so you do not have to worry about the car at night. We had many good tours around the area of the city, both to Etna, Taomina and Naxos. We were on a long trip to "Villa romana del casale", which we would highly recommend. We would also recommend a visit to Benanti Winery, where we got an outstanding experience. Trecastagni is a lovely place and we had wonderful weather, with sun and 20 - 24 degrees every day throughout the week. This is a place you would like to come back to and which we can highly recommend.

Car: not necessary

The village of Trecastagni, perched on the south-eastern flanks of fascinating Mount Etna, is a perfect gateway to exploring not only the looming volcano but also its many interesting towns and villages. There are a great number of excellent walks in the area and many very good restaurants. Coming down from the mountain there are many visits to be made: Taormina, Catania, the Alcantara Gorge and, slightly further afield, Siracusa.
