Holiday in a restored millstone on the Etna slopes, sea view and private swimming pool
Our house is located in a top place with a fantastic view on the Jonic sea and the mountain landscape (30,000 square meters of property) typically developed on terracing. Nature all around is anriched of many different fruit trees, grape plants, flowers, aromatic and exotic plants. There is a fresh finished swimming pool to share with the owners, if at home. The house in rent is part of an ancient millstone restored in 2013 according to the typical construction techniques of the Etna area. The entire property has been re-established respecting the environment, thanks to the use of natural materials (wooden roof with terracotta roof tiles, cork insulation and citrus oil-based plasters for the interior walls), solar heating and cooling and a big rainwater deposit for irrigation.
The house in rent is next to the owner's one, but with a private entrance and indipendent overlooking. It is divided on a ground floor plus mezzanine (max high 1,75 m), where a queen size bedroom is located. On the main floor there are: the living room with double sofa (king size bed), the kitchen with 4 chairs table and all you need to cook and eat, a bathroom (dressing room with sink and shower, WC is separate) and a private double bedroom. Outside there is a raised terrace where you can have breakfast and relax, enjoying the landscape view. The surrounding area also offers a large garden with flowers, fruit trees, aromatic and exotic plants, plus a swimming pool with sun terrace and outdoor showers. For longer stays or on demand, you can use the bathroom and the laundry located in a wooden box next to the terrace. Inside the apartment there is all you need for a comfortable stay, including sheets and towels, heating and cooling, tv, wifi and books.

Viviamo a Torino ma Salvatore ha origini siciliane e ci siamo innamorati entrambi della magia e della storia di questo territorio. Costanza, ora in pensione, dirigeva un'agenzia di servizi . Salvatore è un ingegnere meccanico. Pur avendo ancora molti legami anche lavorativi con Torino, passiamo la maggior parte del tempo in questa casa e saremo felici di accogliervi. Costanza si occupa personalmente del bel giardino che circonda la casa e ama rivisitare antiche ricette siciliane. Salvatore segue il giardino di agrumi e la coltivazione di avocado e quando è libero ama fare giri in bicicletta, sciare sulle pendici dell'Etna e pescare sulla sua piccola barca ancorata nel porto di Riposto. Abbiamo 2 cani, ma hanno il loro recinto nel giardino. Amiamo ospitare amici da tutta Italia con cui condividere questo splendido territorio.
Felici di accogliere anche voi
Costanza e Salvatore
