We just spent 5 nights in the vineyard. When Alberto, the owner, showed us the house, our first response was: we want to buy this house! And after 5 days we felt the same.
Only two bedrooms are rented so you basically have a house for yourself.
Superb location on the edge of the town of Zafferana with a big terrace overlooking the vineyard in progress and the sea. On the other side of the house and from the swimming pool area you could see mount Etna. It's a good location to explore the coastal and mount Etna area.
You can use the kitchen and the fridge if you wanted. We had the most comfortable bed in Sicily and loved the double rain shower in the bathroom.
In the morning Alberto brought us fresh bread and nice sweet treats such as croissants with cream and made some coffee. The rest of the day we had the house to ourselfs. Sometimes Alberto showed up later in the day and checked if everything was ok.
Alberto knows where the good places in the area are, is very helpfull and fun to talk to.
If I will visit Sicily again, I will defently return to this place.
