Where you’ll be

Castiglione di Sicilia, Sicilia, Italy

The house is situated in the Alcantara Valley, between the volcano Mount Etna and the beautiful old town of Taormina. This is widely considered to be one of the most stunning parts of Sicily. The proximity of the ever active Mt. Etna has made the soil very fertile so the scenery is green and luscious year round. You'll be surrounded by overwhelming natural beauty and the Valle d'Alcantara, the Nebrodi nature reserve and the Parco dell'Etnea all offer fantastic outings and wonderful nature walks.
The Alcantara valley is famous for the ‘Gole Alcantara’: a gorge formed by the volcanic activity of the Mount Etna. Here the river Alcantara flows through the amazing rock formations made of lava. You can hike through the gorge and bathe in the cool, refreshing water.

Hill Towns
The nearby typical Sicilian hill town Motta Camastra offers birds nest views of the Alcantara Valley. It was used as backdrop for the town of Corleone in 'The Godfather' movies. Want to take a break from the privacy, peace and solitude that the cottage has to offer. Take a trip to the magical town of Taormina, the tourist heart of Sicily for more spectacular views, fascinating archaeological monuments, outstanding restaurants and plenty of shopping.
Up for a swim? The beautiful beaches of the Ionian Riviera are close and easily accessible. The beach at Giardini Naxos with its azure blue water, sandy beaches and many good restaurants, bars and nightclubs is within an easy drive. The seaside village of Letojanni is another favorite for fun at the beach and delicious fresh seafood restaurants. If you're looking for a more isolated and peaceful beach to relax soak up sun head up to the beach of San Marco a 20 min drive away.

Hi I'm Silvia. I came to Sicily from Madrid, to study, fell in love with Sicily and stayed for more than 17 years.

I've lived in Messina, Palermo and Taormina, but my best memories are with this home where we lived for many years in the beautiful Alcantara Valley.

During your stay we are always available to answer questions or solve any problem.
