Casa Museo A 'Rina on' Etna
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

A beautiful house, and perfect base for exploring the eastern side of Sicily

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this lovely property mid - end August 2016. It's a huge house with a beautiful terrace at the top looking over the valley and up the hills to Etna. Absolutely lovely, dramatic location, and perfect for day trips to Taormina, Catania, Siracusa, Etna and many other attractions. We had a lovely time enhanced by money off vouchers given to us by the owner Virginia. The local town Belpasso is great for Breakfast at Condorellis and a fabulous meal at Casale del Notaio. Nicolosi nearby is also great for eating out and we found a geletaria on the square that did many choices of dairy free icecream as our little girl is dairy intolerant.

We loved our stay, the house was just perfect. Thank you Virginia!!

Estancia sorprendente

  • 5 of 5

El alojamiento supero las descripciones. Casa museo totalmente, muy grande y con mucho terreno alrededor. Lleno de viñas y arboles frutales, lo que nos deleito cogiendo la fruta directamente del árbol para los postres. Virginia nos cito en una gasolinera cercana, que nos resulto, gracias a sus explicaciones, fácil de encontrar. Necesario GPS para localizar el alojamiento en días posteriores. Localización para pasar varios días, a nosotras se nos quedó corta, sólo dos noches.

Totalmente recomendable.

Authentique Villa au calme au pied de l'Etna

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus en famille avec trois garcons et ados, et nous avons tous été enchanté de passer une semaine de reve dans ce bel ensemble authentique au pied de l'Etna. La situation la casa museo de Virginia est idéalement située pour aller visiter toute la cote Est de la Sicile, avec l'autoroute a proximité qui mène assez rapidement à Siracuse, Toamina, Messina, et bien sûr Catane, la deuxieme grande ville de sicile et injustement releguée au deuxiemes rang des merveilles de Sicile.

Située un peu l'écart de la route entre Belpasso et Nicolisi, au milieu des vignes et des brebis, sur une pierre de lave on ne peut plus locale, la maison est au calme et très vaste avec de beaux espaces très agréable à vivre, que ce soit au rez de chaussée avec des pièces authentiques du métier de la vignes, à l’étage dans les chambres aérées entourée d'un large balcon, ou sur la terrasse du haut jouissant d'une magnifique vue sur l'Etna et la mer.

Virginia notre hôte fut très accueillante et disponible, toujours prête a rendre service, et nous a notamment indiqué la voie des meilleurs granités de la région, et nous a gentiment invité dans une très belles piscine a Nicolisi, ce qui en plein mois d’Août est plus qu’appréciablement, malgré la relative douceur des hauteurs de l'Etna.

A tout point de vu, à trois cent soixante degré, une adresse a recommander pour prendre le temps de se reposer et découvrir la côte Est Sicilienne.

Loved this peaceful country house in Belpasso!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay with our group of 7 (from U.S.) at Casa Museo in Belpasso, and Signora Sinatra was the perfect host! The spacious, 3-floor house is situated on a very quiet country road on the edge of town and the views of Mount Etna in one direction and the sea in the other are breathtaking. We took walks in the vineyard, cooked meals in the kitchen, and especially enjoyed the tranquility on the large roof-top terrace. The views of the sky at night were just as spectacular as those in the daytime. The property was very clean and the owner has taken care to update this older farm house. We greatly appreciated having the washer for clothes. It was fun to stay in a historic property and we liked looking at the antiques and the wine-making vats. Guests with active children may want to ask the owner to help place the breakable items out of reach. The proximity to Catania, Paterno’, Rifugio Sapienza, Nicolosi, etc., make this a great location for guests with a car. There is a grocery store close by, and Signora Sinatra was very helpful with information on restaurants and other stores. We look forward to staying here again next time we come to this part of “la bella Sicilia.”

At 15 minutes there is the riding and 30 minutes to reach the cable car to touch the lava then with the 'help of guides you can get on top of the volcano. In 30 minutes by highway CT-ME you get to Taormina (pearl of the Mediterranean) made of narrow streets full of shops and to visit the Greek Theatre, a must look out from the main square and contemplate the sea. In 45 minutes you get to Syracuse to visit that offers a beautiful archaeological park of the Greek era. In an 'hour drive we reach Piazza Armerina where you can visit the Villa Del Casale, Roman site, not far: Morgantina site greek.
