Things to do

-Mount Etna. Zafferana Etnea is practically in the shadow of the legendary Mount Etna, and the natural park protecting this famed landmark could hardly be closer. It’s an active volcano, standing at over 3,320 metres. You can get the best views by taking an off-road vehicle tour, enjoying sumptuous views and seeing former lava rivers from past eruptions.

-Beaches. This portion of Sicily’s east coast tends to have dark pebble beaches that are well tended and offer various activities and services - and of course feature the one-of-a-king backdrop that is Mount Etna. Praiola is one of the closest, and framed by steep wooded hills.

-Catania. Taking a holiday in Zafferana Etnea you could make the short trip south to see this attractive city. The historic part is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its profusion of baroque architecture. Catania’s cathedral dates to Norman times, and no visit is complete without seeing the unique Elephant Fountain in Piazza del Duomo.

-Aci Castello. Even closer is this local coastal town, which has an imposing Norman castle dating to 1076. The structure is mostly intact stands high on a rocky promontory created by ancient lava flows, and looks out over the sea. It now houses a museum detailing the natural and cultural history of the town.

-Food and drink. On the east coast of Sicily you’ll get great seafood and fish thanks to the many fishing villages dotted along seafront. Inland villages are known for their mushrooms, cheeses and cured sausages. The gelato is also fantastic – Sicilians often have served with brioche.

For the remainder of the year, from October to April, daily highs drop gradually to the low-teens in January, before rising sharply again in Spring.

The house is amazing and the grounds gorgeous with views of Mt Etna in the distance. The owners, Giuseppe and Raffaella couldn't do enough for us. We would definitely recommend Etna Flower to friends.

In a quiet neighbourhood, the farmhouse is nice and has great surrounding garden and terrific panorama over Etna and sea coast. Outside breakfast and coffee time areas are also very cute & kitchen has everything you would need. The relatively difficult access road is more than balanced by all described advantages of the property. Everything needed you can buy in the 2 vicinity villages.

We visited all of these - Syracuse is highly recommended - and also made several trips to the closest town Acireale (10 minutes away) which is lovely and quite unspoilt by tourism. We also enjoyed both swimming and dining in some of the extremely attractive local fishing ports along the riviera de Cyclops. The villa itself is very much a family home, and has clearly been furnished and kitted out by people who have loved living there. The gardens are secluded and very pretty, and there are vantage points for every time of day. Breakfast al fresco with Etna smoking gently in the background was a particular treat. So was relaxing by the pool. Because of this it was tempting to stay put despite all the attractions around. We loved our stay and will certainly consider returning!
