Palmento La Rosa

Typical farmhouse with pool - On the slopes of Mount Etna

Trecastagni - East of Sicily



Palmento La Rosa is an old country property with private pool situated on the slopes of Mount Etna, between the characteristic villages of Pedara and Trecastagni. Surrounded by a lovely garden, the villa boasts large, well equipped terraces and a beautiful overflow, saltwater pool offering enchanting views over the countryside and the sea. Accurately and lovingly restored by the owner, the dwelling preserves its original character and charm. Palmento La Rosa retains its architectural features, such as the original ceiling beams, lava stones and terracotta floor tiles. The split-level interior includes a large, spectacular living area (the former millstone), a modern, well-equipped kitchen and four cosy double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.

The villa comes also with wi-fi, sat-TV, Hi-Fi system, washing machine and dishwasher. Palmento La Rosa is the ideal property for a relaxing holiday with family or friends, in a quiet but not secluded place, where the atmosphere and the scents of the Sicilian countryside can be enjoyed.

    We are having the most wonderful break here. The owners are wonderful in that they have thought of absolutely everything we could possibly need...and more. I wanted to tell you how very grateful I am for all of your efforts last week and the truly beautiful break we are having. This house is the perfect escape and bubble from today's busy world, it's a wonderland for the kids and we are all so happy.

    We’ve had a lovely week in this beautiful villa! Despite the mixed weather, we managed trips to the beach. Catania was a nice day out, had some amazing food there. Isola Bella and Taormina were beautiful. We can recommend going to “Il gatto e la volpe”, in Trecastagni, for pizza. The children loved the chocolate pizza! The children also loved the pool tlable (as did daddy!) The pool was amazing for a cool drain in the sun! We managed to go up to Mt Etna on a clear morning. Views were amazing on the way up in the cable car. Thanks for a lovely week! Les, Beth, Emma and Mattew - Manchester - UK

    Sicilia una bella isola! Wir verbrachten eine wunderschöne Woche. Gestartet in den Tag im Giardino mit einem ruchhaltigen und feinen Frühstück, liebevoll zuberaitet von Antonella. Wir schauten uns an Noto, Bronte, Syrakusa, Randazzo, Taormina, Santa Tecla, die Südspitze und Catania und natürlich waren wir auch bei Donna Etna. Abends sassen wir gemütlich am Tisch im Palmento bei feinem Essen (3x zuberaitet von Francesco und seinem Team) und Vino. Was will man mehr, kurzum: wir genossen es sehr.

    Ein wundervoller Urlaub geht zu Ende und wir haben jeden Tag genossen! Das Haus und die Anlage sind einfach traumhaft schön! Der Ätna hat uns Einblicke in diese atemberaubenden Geschehnisse gegeben: vom dampfenden Rauch, über grollendes Krachen und sogar bei Nacht die rote Lava oben auf der Bergspitze! Unglaublich! Wir wurden super umsorgt von den lieben Menschen hier vor Ort. Doch am meisten danken wir Carlo & Yasemin für diese wundervolle Zeit, die wir hier mit unseren Lieben verbringen durften! Ihr habt das alles zu einem einzigartigen unvergesslichen Urlaub gemacht! Danke <3 Molto bello & mille grazie!
