A lush garden with infinite shades of green surrounds this enchanting villa, a nineteenth-century millstone used in the past for the processing of grapes, of which a skilful conservative restoration has respected and enhanced the elements - terracotta floors, walls and pillars in lava stone, high ceilings with exposed beams - integrating at the same time the best technologies to make it energy autonomous: photovoltaic and solar thermal system, fireplace, biomass stove, latest generation fixtures, water purifier, make this ancient dwelling a masterful example of eco-compatibility.
In the garden, which extends for 9,000 square meters, imposing tall trees dot the space creating shaded areas, but it is above all the colors and scents of the Mediterranean scrub that define the character of this small green oasis while, immersed in the heated pool, the gaze is lost in the surrounding countryside and reaches the sea and the coasts of Calabria. Imposing and majestic, Etna dominates the property giving a breathtaking spectacle. This splendid villa boasts an excellent position because, although enclosed in the total privacy of the park, it is not far from the town and only a few kilometers separate it from the lively Acireale, a UNESCO World Heritage city, and from the seaside areas. Etna, Taormina and the precious villages on the slopes of the volcano are also easily reachable destinations in a short time. The property also acts as an accommodation business and is presented as a valid investment for those wishing to focus on this type of business.
