The 'Casa di Filippo' (Filippo's Home) is a beautiful cottage that rests on the northern feet of the Mount Etna, the biggest and most spectacular volcano of Europe. Located at almost 2000 feet above the sea level, the house offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape: the sea coast dominated by the beautiful town of Taormina on the east, and the fuming Etna and its National Park on the west.
This cottage was built in the 1950s and has been recently renovated in a way that pays respect to the traditional construction patterns of the area. In order to reduce the environmental impact and enhance sustainability, the power supply for the whole house is provided by a solar panels system while the maintenance of the vineyard, the olive grove and the orchard is carried according to organic standards.
The cottage is composed of four one bedroom flats with bathroom, small kitchen area for coffees or teas and with independent entrances so as to ensure total privacy. Each of the apartment can sleep up to four people thanks to the possibility of adding sofa beds or extra bedsits. The guests are also able to access a common farmhouse kitchen in the lower ground floor designed as a social space for food preparation and dining. Moreover, the garden and the outdoor swimming pool offer the chance to unwind and relax while being immersed in nature and tranquillity.
Within five minutes by car you can visit the town of Linguaglossa, rich of cultural and gastronomical heritage, or you could head south towards the seaside and Taormina, or North for a walk on the Etna or a visit to the nearby golf club 'Il Picciolo', depending on your preferences. Also, given that the cottage is situated on a 'Wine Route', it is possible to book guided tours in the wineries around the area.TripAdvisor property ID 3541230...Read more
