Walking and Hiking

This scenic region is ideal for exploring on foot. A visit to the hilltop village of Serro is a popular walk from your holiday rental in Villafrance Tirrena or explore the many trails around Mount Etna Regional Park.

Sample Local Cuisine

For a taste of Sicilian cuisine try the aubergine (eggplant) caponata, a stew of tomaotoes, aubergines, capers and olives, often served as an antipasto.

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.

A day in Palermo, the capital city of Sicily, is well worth the 2 hour journey. It has many gorgeous buildings including the Palazzo dei Normanni, said to be one of the most beautiful palaces in Italy.

Nous avons adoré !!!

5 of 5
Nous sommes restés 3 semaines dans cette maison. 3 semaines de détente au calme en profitant d'une vue magnifique sur les iles Eoliennes. La maison est parfaitement adaptée pour une famille de 5 personnes telle que la nôtre. Rien à redire, tout correspondant amplement à nos attentes. La région n'accueille pas un tourisme de masse, les petits commerçants locaux sont charmants et bienveillants. Bref nous avons adorés nos vacances partagées entre le repos, la découverte de la région, les ballades, la mer et les îles. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison et cette région encore préservée.
