The View, Sicily is situated in the foothills of Mount Etna on the outskirts of a small village Presa, between Piedimonte Etneo and Linguaglossa. Set 600 metres above sea level and within an acre of grounds containing fruit orchards, olive trees and vines, guests may relax and enjoy the breath taking sea view with Taormina, Castelmola, the Ionian coastline and the southernmost tip of the Italian mainland as the backdrop. A memorable spot for couples, families and groups alike, the surrounding countryside ensures birdsong and an unadulterated level of peace and tranquillity.
Originally a simple stone cottage, The View, Sicily has been renovated into a four double bedroom, three bathroom self-contained villa surrounded by grounds with large open terraces on both the ground and first floor. The interior decor is understated, comfortable yet tasteful with plenty of wood and natural colours. There is an emphasis on local handmade and traditional products such as ceramic tiles, local chestnut wood beams and ceramics from the nearby town of Caltagirone. The sitting room is made snug by an open fire in winter.
The property is on two levels. A ground floor entrance leads into a large open plan kitchen, dining and living room area. Two double bedrooms are on the ground floor, one has an ensuite bathroom. There is an additional bathroom on the ground floor. The staircase to the first floor leads to two double bedrooms and one bathroom. There are terraces on both the ground and first floors where guests may relax and enjoy the breath taking views.
Outside a stone built cantina is used to store locally produced wine and olive oil. Alfresco dining is highly recommended with a traditional wood fire pizza oven, a barbecue and outdoor seating area on the terrace for guests to enjoy. There is also an outdoor relaxation area with comfortable seating where guests may unwind and enjoy the incredible view.
Ideally located near town and sea, the glamorous resort of Taormina, majestic Mount Etna, the beaches of Marina di Cottone, Giardini Naxos and Isola Bella and il Picciolo Golf Club for golf lovers are only a short drive away. On a practical note, the nearest motorway exit is a 15 minute drive and the nearest airport, Catania is approximately a 45 minute drive.
