We are on the north side of Mount Etna, in the area full of forests. The south side of Etna consists mainly of lava fields and few trees. At our house the air is fresh and clean. We live in a quiet neighborhood 500 meters outside of Linguaglossa. Our guest house is on our private land of 10,000 square meters, which is full of fruit trees, an olive grove and a vineyard. We produce our own wine and olive oil, which you are welcome to taste.
The view from the house is magnificent: Mount Etna on one side and the town of Linguaglossa on the other. The house and terrace are 4 1/2 metres above ground level, so nothing obstructs your view.
Our large house is divided internally into 2 complete, independent houses. We live in the left side. Our guests have their private entrance on the right side. Description of the right side: For 4 people, two bedrooms, complete kitchen with fridge, complete bathroom with shower and washing machine, dining room, heating, wireless internet, large terrace, spectacular view of Mt Etna. Each double bed can be separated into 2 single beds, if necessary.

There is a small supermarket at a 7 minute walk from here. In the town there are pubs, bars, restaurants and 2 other supermarkets. Linguaglossa is famous for its sausages, breads and sweets.
From the Catania airport follow the signs to A18, which is the autostrada, towards Messina. Here is a little tip for not getting lost. Just after you leave the airport area, you will go down a ramp (a bridge) that curves to the left. Stay on the LEFT side of that downwards ramp. You will merge onto a straight highway. Follow the signs to "Tangenziale A18". Tangenziale is a beltway that goes around Catania and takes you to the toll booth on the highway Catania-Messina A18. The toll booth is about 15 minutes after leaving the airport, if traffic is normal. Take a ticket at the toll booth and go towards Messina. Once on the motorway, the first exit is Acireale, the second is Giarre, the third is Fiumefreddo. It takes about 25 minutes from the toll booth in Catania to the Fiumefreddo exit, which is 10 kilometers after the Giarre exit. Exit at Fiumefreddo and pay the toll, which is about 1,10 euros. There is a rotary about 30 meters after the toll booth. Go 3/4 around it towards Linguaglossa and begin to go up the mountain. There are 10 minutes of winding roads and then you will go through a town called Piedimonte Etneo. The next town is Linguaglossa, 7 kilometers after Piedimonte Etneo.
Linguaglossa is located at 550 meters above sea level. The air is light and cool. It is unique because it is 20 minutes from Mt Etna, 20 minutes from the sea and 1 hour from Catania. So, you get the best of all aspects of Sicily.
You have access to everything.

My wife, Debbie, and I have been living in Linguaglossa for the past 24 years. She is from the USA and I am from Linguaglossa. I am an English teacher and we are the authors of "English for Italians" and "Inglés para Españoles". We enjoy our quiet country life by foraging for wild vegetables and mushrooms and taking walks in the beautiful countryside around Mt Etna. We also make our own wine and olive oil, which our guests are welcome to taste.
