“Beautiful View, Friendly Hosts”
Reviewed 2 February 2010

My husband and I stayed in this agriturismo in May 2009. We located it at the last minute after the place with which we had originally made reservations was not able to complete renovations on time (and did not tell us before we got to Sicily)! However, Etna Wine Farm turned out to be an excellent choice. It had a great view of Etna, was close to a small town for shopping, and had a nice (but cold) pool. If we return to Sicily we will stay there again.

There are two buildings to choose from. One contains a couple apartments and the reception--the other is in the midst of a vineyard. The pool is in between the buildings. The building in the vineyard is much the nicer of the two. It had a well equipped (for a vacation apartment) kitchen, a little living room area, and a large bedroom and bathroom. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning look out at the vines and listen to the birds.

I cannot say enough good things about the hosts. They were super friendly and very concerned to make sure we had a good time. On the evening we arrived, tired and with little food, they insisted we take some bread and olives from their own kitchen. They also picked some fresh cherries for us from the trees and showed us how wine was made 'in the old times.' They are very proud of their wine--and rightfully so. It was very good quality.

For those who like 'self-catering' the nearest full service grocery store is about 15-20 minutes away. And, it had a 'frutta e verdura' stand across the street. The only drawback was that, in May, the pool was still too cold for me to swim in. It was a great place to lounge though!

Had lots of fun in Sicily, truly a wonderful experience. In spite of loving our excursions we always looked forward to going back tot the farmhouse, situated at the foot of Mount Etna. The sight of the vineyard and wine trees were always a comforting and pretty sight on waking up in the morning. Our appartment ws just right for us, very safe for children. The bbq area was also very convenient as we would buy fresh meat and grill iton the bbq. Restaurant was also very convenient. The pool area, though pool is not too big was very relaxing. Wine tastes very nice and the proprietor is very proud of his wine and property. he was very nice and helpful, he would even bring us freshly pcked fruit in the morning. Would try to communicate even though he does not talk in ENglish. Overall an excellent experience.
