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.

old winery Trecastagni

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday staying iat this property ,The house was very impressive inside with the mechanics of the Old Winery press being the feature of the living room - it was quite museum like in some respects- the house was furnished to a high standard and the kitchen had everything needed in a self catering house- outside was a barbecue and plenty of shaded areas with lots of seats which was much needed as there was a heatwave and most days the temperature was 90 degrees plus.

The house is very well

Situated in the town - two minutes walk from numerous restaurants and quaint cobbled streets and shops - the town is very old and charming and on one of weekends there was a festival with music and craft stalls in the town square .

Mount Etna was there on the horizon and a half hour drive - lots of towns and beaches to visit- Taormina and Siracuse ( boat trip well recommended) are places not to miss .

Pinella ( who welcomed us on arrival on behalf of the owners) was so kind and helpful even making our daughter a beautiful cake for her birthday - and responding really quickly by texts whenever we needed advice on where to go what to do .

A wonderful holiday!

Margaret and Paul Tutty and family

The most amazing stay!!! Very highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the first entrance till the last moment the house felt like a home! Very welcoming hosts, Francesca and her Mum were super helpful and warm. Made us feel at home the same minute we met! The house itself is so big and spacious with loads of good charm in it. Felt so warm and cosy, from the living area to the garden!

House is located in lovely town with quiet few nice local restaurants, lovely shops and also the best ever Gelateria! Loved the people, so charming and very helpful although not many English speaking locals, even if they didn't, they were ready to go the extra mile to help us out:) All the church bells made this little town even more special!

House is only 30min away from wonderful beaches in Taormina or 1h drive from beautiful beach San Lorenzo, if you are travelling with kids, this beach is for you:) Also only 16km away to the lifts to get to Etna, so beautiful up there!

We just got back today and already miss it a lot!!! We will be coming back for sure!

Thank you, Owners Direct, Giulia & Lenneke and Francesca with the loveliest Mum ever!!! You made our holidays 1000000% perfect :) Thank you a million!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay in this Trecastagni winery! The outdoor space was absolutely perfect with plenty of seating and even a grill area. The kitchen and living room were very large and extremely well appointed. There are four full bathrooms - 3 with showers and one with a jacuzzi tub. One note- it's not really three bedrooms. The third bedroom is a loft above the living room with curtains and a pull out sofa with a bathroom. It worked fine with us but may be difficult for anyone who is unstable walking/children. Location is ideal, with shops and restaurants nearby. Included is a gated driveway and two entrances. Francesca was very accommodating and we have no complaints!

Thoughtful welcome

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as a family of 6 late on a Sunday night to a thoughtful welcome from the owners. This house had everything we needed and had been finished with pride. All the little extras were there. The garden was lovely and would be an easy place to spend more time.

The neighbourhood is friendly and the house felt safe. All your basic needs were covered locally, and a large supermarket was in San Giovanni la Punta (easy to access by car). Parking behind the gate is a challenge, and we couldn't do it with our van, but street parking was easy.

It was a good base to use as a base to explore the sights of Sicily. There are a few noisy dogs in the area, and of course the early church bells (like all of Italy!), and these did affect our sleep a little - but maybe we sleep a little lightly.

I would recommend this as a place to stay, and would happily return.

Amazing property..

  • 4 of 5

The property has all the charm of the old wine press and the convenience of the contemporary and sensitive restoration. Its a great location for day trips to the surrounding areas and it is only a short walk to the square with lots of shops, There are quite a few good restaurants close by as well

I would have given the property 5 stars except one 0f the beds is actually a quite uncomfortable hideabed.

Driving in the area is challenging at first because the signage is pretty erratic but a gps would help.

Beautiful and unusual house in friendly town

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special house - a quite wonderful conversion of an old winery, brilliantly blending the old and the new. It has a lovely garden and every modern feature that you could hope for. Trecastagni is a friendly town which gradually reveals its considerable charms, all just a very short walk from the house. Highly recommended.

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.
