Lovely Country Cottage In The Etna Natural: 6 -8 persons

The Cherries Cottage is an old Sicilian home, situated inside Etna Natural Reserve, at 1000 meters above s.l.

The structure is a typical one level house, built entirely of lava stone and wood. In certain areas of the house wood from old chestnut barrels was used for the restructuring, while respecting all the rules of the Sicilian tradition, and in accordance with the provisions for the protection of the Park of Etna.

6-10 beds are available, two bathrooms, two living rooms both equipped with lava stone fireplaces and in the largest living room can still be found the original wine press for pressing grapes, a dining room with a terracotta stove and the kitchen is equipped with a wood stove.

The house is surrounded by greenery and boasts a large open space of over 4 hectares planted with fruit trees typical: cherries, chestnut..

There is also a wide built-in barbecue area and a Sicilian terracotta table where you can have your lunch or dinner and enjoy a beautiful view of Volcano.

In the garden, there is an above ground pool for refreshing and relaxing our guests.

A beautiful place to stay

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at this property during the first week of September 2014 with my two adult children. The house is charming and built of lava stone. The interior is rustic and spacious with many preserved features such as parts of the old wine press. The main bedroom is like a giant hotel suite. The other beds are distributed throughout the house. The photos on this website are accurate so believe what they show.
When it is really hot outside the coolness of the house is greatly appreciated.The surrounding orchards are great for early morning walks and quiet reflection.
I can't report about eating out because we always cooked at home. Use the large outdoor wood-fired barbecue.
We spent half our time just chilling around the house and grounds with day trips to Catania, Taomina and just down the hill to the beach at Cottone (25minutes drive).
The owner of the property is very friendly, and extremely helpful.
We all loved it and would recommend it to anyone else

Stunning location matched by amazing cottage

  • 5 of 5
Cant praise the cottage enough, really, really good in every sense. Huge amount of space inside and out, decorated to a very high, traditional standard. There is a large amount of ground which we were free to roam, in and amongst the cherry orchards. The location was truely amazing, you have your own, uninterupted private view of mt. Etna. Would recomend for either a romantic getaway, or a family looking for a relaxing break away. We went for our honeymoon and were very pleased, it was better than the 5 star hotel we stayed at in Rome our way back home.

A wonderful country house with Etna view

  • 5 of 5
We visited the Cherries Cottage mid April 2013. At that time, it was spring, sunny days with temperatures around 17C, perfect travelling with small children. The scenery was beautiful. In the garden, the cherry trees and wild flowers were blooming and the snowy top of Mount Etna could be seen in the background. Arriving at the cottage, we had the pleasure of meeting with house owner, who handed us the keys and told us about the house and the practical information in relation to our stay. The house owner is very friendly and service-minded, making us feel very welcome. During our stay we visited Etna, Taormina and the minor villages near to the house - all of great interest. We were even lucky to see Etna in eruption with lava streams in bright red during night (nothing of danger). In the house, there is an original pizza oven and we had the fun of trying to make pizza in the traditional Italian way – not so easy. In addition, we had a delicious culinary experience when ordering a traditional Sicilian meal to be cooked at the house by the house holders, an experience that we wish for other to have. Everything from initial correspondence, payment, arrival, stay and departure was well organized. All together, we recommend this lovely house and the area around it to other.

Kind regards
A Family of 4 from Copenhagen, Denmark
