Mount Etna

Mount Etna is Europe's greatest natural wonder and is Sicily's highest mountain, standing 3350 metres (10,990 feet) above sea level.

The slopes are covered with trees and shrubs and it is ideal for summer hiking, especially as it is cooler than the coastal areas due to its elevation.

It's got everything you need. Including a beautiful swimming pool and the beautiful view and sunsets. Marco was very helpful and so was his uncle as they helped us stay there at a very short notice. We informed about the villa in the morning and were already welcome the same day. Thank you very much!
