Palmento Monterosso

Characteristic farmhouse on the slopes of Mount Etna - Warm, inviting atmosphere

Trecastagni - East of Sicily



The charming hillside setting of Mount Etna with its vineyards, orchards and low stone walls forms the backdrop to this beautiful country house situated close to Trecastagni, a small village on the south-eastern slope of the volcano, just 15 km away from Catania. Dating back to the 17th century, Palmento Monterosso has been expertly renovated to retain its old charm, character and original architectural features. Its comfortable rooms, carefully decorated with tasteful accessories and traditional handicrafts, merge the time-honoured past of the property with modern comforts into a warm and subtle atmosphere. This is accentuated by typical local features such as vaulted ceilings, terracotta floor tiles, wrought iron beds, stone door arches and majolica tiles. Outside a large, private garden and a patio with pergola are the perfect place to relax and enjoy the colour and fragrance of the Sicilian countryside. Located in a side street within close proximity of the natural attractions of the Etna National Park and of the wine route, Palmento Monterosso is the perfect base for enjoying delicious wine and gastronomy tours and exploring the stunning nature of this area. In the vicinity can easily be visited the close volcanic cones of Mt. Ilice, Gorna and St. Nicolò, the other nice villages on the slopes of Mount Etna such as Piedimonte and Zafferana, but also the renowned towns of the eastern coast such as Taormina, Catania and Siracusa.

    Thanks for the lovely stay we had at your villa. It is very charming & we thoroughly enjoyed the respite from the busy cities.

    We had a wonderful week in Palmento Monterosso. We explored many parts of Sicily and also enjoyed just staying “home” and admiring all the details of this unusual and delightful villa. Many evenings cooking pasta and reading books by the log fire. Perfect! Grazie mille.

    Grazie mille per una vacanza indimenticabile. La casa e il giardino erano meravigliosi! Abbiamo fatto le gite a Siracusa, Agrigento, Noto e spiaggia, Piazza Armerina/Villa Romana e anche passeggiate sull’Etna. Erano 10 giorni bellissimi!!

    We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful weather and we spent happy hours just sitting in the garden. People in Trecastagni were so friendly and we had everything there that we wanted. We enjoyed visiting Ortygia (Siracusa), Piazza Armerina with amazing Roman villa and Scicli. Grazie mille!

    We loved the house and the garden and Mount Etna

    Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in diesem Ferienhaus. Von hier aus konnte man problemlos viele unserer Urlaubsziele erreichen ohne einen großen Aufwand. Morgens hatten wir beim Frühstuck draußen einen schönen Blick auf den Schneebedeckten Ätna und ein schönes Panorama auf das Mittelmeer. Abends werden wir von den prasselnden Kaminfeuer gewärmt. Wir durften auch ein Eruption des Ätnas bewundern.

    We had a great vacation using your wonderful home as a starting point to explore this part of Sicily. Thank you so much.

    We’ve had a very relaxing time in this beautiful house and garden! Congratulations on a beautiful renovation – we loved every moment of our time in Sicily. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Mr. Frank , Germany

    October 2015

    Wir hatten eine wirklich wunderbar Zeit in diesem fantastischen Ferienhaus, welches uns als Basis für zahlreiche tolle Ausflüge auf der gesamte Inseln diente. Egal ob zum Gipfel des Ätna, zu dem Ruinen von Agrigent oder in den Trubeln von Taormina. Ein Spaziergang im herrlichen Garten zum Sonnenaufgang oder das gemeinsame Zubereiten von Mahlzeiten am Abend, oder, oder, oder – all das wird uns in Erinnerung bleiben.

    Four Australians had a wonderful time! Etna with snow, but didn’t glow, Taormina and the Teatro Greco, a good show of local food and wine, just too much in all and the best of all, the Trecastagni procession! Would love to stay again. Our welcome was so warm. Such a beautiful place to stay, the garden relaxing and quiet. The house, a home. Thank you.

    We spent a great week in Sicily. Palmento Monterosso is a fantastic place to stay when visiting the East coast. The view on the Etna, the nice garden and large house are some of the many good points. Thanks a lot
