Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

This cosy home nestled between verdant trees and rock formations is the perfect rural getaway for you and your loved ones. The high walls in the outdoor space give you privacy, making this your very own little oasis. You'll even spot fruit trees in the garden as you settle down for a homemade picnic on the grass under the sun. It'll be hard to resist not spending every hour of the day out there, especially with the refreshing pool and sun loungers, allowing you to relax in style no matter the time of day – unwind as you read a brand new book while the children play on the slide and swing set. Pure bliss is offered to you inside the home, as you snuggle up on the sofa to watch a movie, followed by playing your favourite new playlist on the iPod docking station as you cook up a storm in the kitchen. Swing open the patio doors to head back outside to tuck into the delicious meal at the outdoor dining table while you listen to the birds and the hum of the breeze. A forty–one–minute drive takes you to the charming port city of Catania. Visit the harbour to watch the boats glide over the glistening waters, and wander the streets to discover local hidden gems as well as a wide range of eateries that serve global cuisine. Sitting at the foot of Mount Etna, you'll find a trail that leads to the summit of the volcano – an amazing opportunity for those who love hiking.
