La Torretta is an old rural farmhouse which has recently been restored and converted into a fabulous private residence. Framed by Mount Etna’s unique natural environment with its vineyards, orchards and low stone walls, the property boasts an amazing saltwater pool with panoramic views, large and well-equipped terraces, a lovely garden with aromatic plants and a beautiful spa area with Jacuzzi, Turkish bath, sauna, multi-sensory shower and salt grotto.

Its cozy interiors, furnished with great care and attention to detail, occupy what were once the manor house, the winery, the stable and the storage room. Renovated using eco-friendly materials, they still retain their character and original architectural features. Combining modern features with traditional elements, these stylish interiors include, on the ground floor of the manor house, a living area with lounge, dining room, kitchen and guest bathroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and on the lower floor, in the former wine press room, is the wellness area.

The two annexes house respectively a suite with double bed in the loft (Casetta) and a double bedroom (Dependance), both with en-suite bathrooms. The outdoor area also includes a kitchen with dining area and a small football pitch. The villa is equipped with a gym, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, washing machine, dishwasher, heating and fireplace. From the villa can be easily reached the other villages and natural beauties of the Etna Park and the most popular towns on the Ionian coast, such as Taormina, Catania and Syracuse.
