FARMHOUSES WITH A PRIVATE POOL IN AN ORANGE GROVE, ONLY 3 KM FROM THE BEACH!

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Mascali - Borgo Aranci

10 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms - you can choose if renting it for 10, 14 or 18 people

Borgo Aranci is a well-kept group of farmhouses set amongst a fragrant organic orange grove. The houses date back to the 18th century and have been beautifully restored and lovingly furnished (sleeps 10, 14 or 18 people / the prices below are referred to an occupancy of 10 people). The property boasts far reaching views onto countless orange trees with the blue sea beyond, the mighty Etna, occasionally providing a sparkling fireworks show, and the Taormina hills to the north. An electronic entrance gate leads to the 3 ha property. As you make your way down the long drive you will see orange trees as far as the eye can see until you reach the houses with it´s simple facades, sun-bleached walls and dark green shutters. On arrival your focus will turn to the immaculate lawns and the inviting pool. The terraces have shadow roofs, are equipped with beautiful garden furniture, and there is a stone barbecue.

Please ask for the link of our home page to receive more information. Thank you!

Although there are three buildings, making it excellent for large parties, we only rent it for exclusive use, so you will never share pool or grounds with other guests. You are welcome to choose if renting the property for a group of 10, 14 or 18 people. Rented all houses a total of 10 bedrooms (8 doubles/twins and 2 single bedrooms) and 6 baths are at your disposal. Fine materials, typical for the region, have been used for the restauration: the floors were laid with hand-made, square terracotta tiles in warm colors. Polished, silvery-gray lava stone has been used for the terrace. The kitchen cupboards are made of white, enameled, fired slabs of lava. Hand-painted tiles decorate the white ceramic panels on the bathroom and kitchen walls. The terraces have shadow roofs, are equipped with beautiful garden furniture, and there is a stone barbecue.

OUTSIDE

The property is reached by a long track running through the organic orange groves and boasts fabulous views in all directions. The pool is 2 m deep. It offers a magnificent view of the grove and the sea. There are plenty of shaded areas for al fresco dining and relaxing whilst enjoying the views of the surrounding countryside and the sea. Guests are welcome to make use of herbs, fruit and vegetables from the estate's organic kitchen garden. The grove is full of many different fruit trees from peaches and cherries to pears, apricots and figs. Enjoy your breakfast orange juice fresh from the tree - from October to April.

EXPLORING THE AREA

Situated near the town of Fiumefreddo about half way between Catania and Taormina, Borgo Aranci is a good base from which to visit Taormina, Catania, Mount Etna and the various fascinating villages on its flanks.

Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is 14 miles (20 minute drive) away. Taormina is wonderful blend of Greek, Roman, Arab and Baroque architecture. It sits high on a hill, overlooking one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Views are dramatic and spectacular. The ancient Greek amphitheater puts on plays every night during the summer months. In town, picturesque alleys and half-flights of steps are lined with elegant boutiques and restaurants. With ancient monuments, flowered courtyards, tiny alleys, cafés, restaurants, shops, and tourists from all over the world, it's easy to see why Taormina is considered one of Sicily's most beautiful towns. The drive to the beach is easy and quick. The next spot for bathing is Marina di Cottone (3 km). The lava shingle beach is 7 km long and has crystal clear water. The beaches of Fiumefreddo and Marina di Cottone have received several consecutive 'Bandiere Blu' attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence.

THE THREE HOUSES:

CEDRO (sleeps 10 / 205 sqm):

Ground floor: 1 living/dining room, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom, 1 single bedroom.

Fully renovated farmhouses on large, leafy private property. Outstanding views of the snow-capped Etna or the blue sea and the countless oranges in the evergreen grove.

This spot is one of the wealthiest and probably best regions in Sicily. The earth is rich - there is no lack of water and the area profits from a unique micro-climate: the high mountain protects it from the cold north winds in winter - daytime temperatures rarely fall below 20°, even in the coolest months (December, January, February). Bathing is possible from April to October and sunbathing even at at Christmas. In the height of summer, the ice and snow-capped peaks provide a cool breeze on the long, hot evenings.
