VILLA BELMONTE - GIARRE
Villa Belmonte is a charming farmhouse located on the slopes of Mount Etna, amongst lemon trees. The property is on different levels with a wonderful swimming pool where guests can enjoy amazing sea views and the coastline between Acireale and Taormina. Acireale is an ancient small town situated on the eastern coast of Sicily, about 20 km north of Catania. Its history is characterized by the earthquakes and the eruptions of Mount Etna that, several times, have upset the order of the territory. The town has been rebuilt and is one of the most beautiful in Sicily boasting several Baroque buildings. The town is well known for its carnivals with beautiful floats and displays from the local inhabitants.
The villa (120sqm) has recently been refurbished and it is the oldest part of the complex, consisting of the manor house, a wine press and various agricultural buildings. Great care has been taken to preserve the character and charm of the villa. The owner has retained many of the original interior and exterior architectural features. The interior decor, featuring terracotta floor tiles and select antiques, creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. Each room contains elements of traditional Sicilian style. Beautifully sitting in the surrounding landscape, this villa offers plenty of space and panoramic terraces overlooking the garden with lawn, Mediterranean plants and the pool, perfect for relaxation. The villa is an excellent starting point for exploring Etna and its villages, through interesting excursions and delicious wine and gastronomy tours.
