Charming countryhouse wine resort Rovittello - Etna - Ref: FSN

Hidden among old vineyards on the slopes of Mount Etna, the beautiful Sicilian Mansion is the perfect place to stay for nature, gastronomy and wine lovers. You'll be seduced by its stylish decoration where tradition and design are elegantly combined, its refined atmosphere and appreciate a warm welcome.
A careful restoration has revived the former splendour and character of the property. The 17th century lava stone Palmento (a group of dwellings centered around the cellar where grapes and olives were crushed) is today a suggestive location for wine tasting.
The Agriturismo produces 4 wines, all of them coming from the territory of Mount Etna. The most representative is the Musmeci rosso, obtained with a singular variety, the Nerello Mascalese, from age-old vineyards. The owner, Silvia Maestrelli, whose goal is to ally the culture of wine with good living, has experienced in the last 10 years with her Etna wines a fair success around the world. The entire production is organic.
Above the Palmento are located the elegant breakfast room, the living-room and the beautiful terrace offering endless views over the vineyards. Breakfast is a real culinary experience where you will have the opportunity to taste the cuisine of the chef: a hearty and exquisite buffet consisting in homemade individual pastries and cookies, local yoghurt, seasonal fruits, regional hard and fresh cheese, homemade bread and other salted or sweet delicacies available "à la carte". Most of the products comes from the organic orchard of the agriturismo or from local small producers.
Besides being a perfect place for relaxing, this luxury wine resort is also the ideal place to discover Mount Etna, beautiful cities like Taormina, Catania, the gorges of Alcantara and taste the regional products of the area.

The 6 rooms, stylish and tastefully decorated with traditional Sicilian craft and antics, design and art collector's pieces, are located in different places of the estate. The split level Junior suite can accommodate up to 3 guests. With thick lava stone walls and a bathroom with a large stone bath tub, the 54m² suite offers an intimate and felted atmosphere. The superior rooms are situated on the first floor of the main building and enjoy a beautiful view over the vineyards. All rooms have modern bathrooms, Maison Margiela bath linen, safe box, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating, coffee machine, herbal teas.

Curiosity: In former times, a little train connecting Catania to Riposto used to call at all stations around Mount Etna. Nowadays the train line is a myth; only a small rail car stops at some stations 4 or 5 times per day. You will have the feeling to be in a movie scene and jump into the past when the small rail car is passing nearby the property.
