Zafferana Etnea Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Lava rock farmhouse among vineyards, cherry trees and a wooded valley

Casa Rosa is a recently renovated farmhouse that is situated in a beautiful natural environment: an estate of 2 hectares of vineyards, cherry trees and a wooded valley ideal for your summer picnic. On one side you see the Mount Etna but on the other side the view of the coast is a truly unique show: a landscape of 150 km until Taormina, the coast of Calabria in the far north and the province of Syracuse in the south. The ground floor has a living room with fireplace, sofa and dining table, kitchen, bathroom with toilet, bidet and shower, a double bedroom with a large double bed. In the attic there is a bedroom with large double bed, a terrace and a large bedroom with large double bed and two single beds. There is also a bathroom with toilet, bidet and shower. The garden is equipped with garden furniture including parasol and beach chairs, barbecue and various toys for children. The fireplace also supplies the central heating which makes Casa Rosa also suitable for a winter holiday.

The area: Casa Rosa is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just 15 kilometres from Acireale (a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches). Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach, is just 25 km from Casa Rosa (15 minutes with the highway). Next to Giardini Naxos we find Taormina 'the pearl of the Mediterranean' and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala are Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Zafferana Etnea. The nearest can be found in Praiola (9 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.

Mount Etna: Casa Rosa is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated about 600 metres above sea level, they are a favourite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!

Beautiful house with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5
Great family house on the slopes of Etna. The house was a perfect escape from the Summer heat, offering beautiful views and a perfect place both to relax and to discover the East coast of Sicily and Etna itself. Ernesto and his family were most welcoming and we felt right at home in Zefferena, the beautiful town nearby.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic find. The house and location were superb.
We lived off the beautiful fruit produced in Ernesto's garden. The sweetest cherries I have ever tasted. Beautiful vineyard. Superb views.
The family were so lovely. One evening they came over and cooked us the best fish meal ever!
Ernesto's wine and olive oil are superb.
Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcomed.
The house was clean and very well equipped.
I would recommend this house to everyone.
Thank you for a great holiday and for your outstanding hospitality.

Wonderful Sicily! Wonderful Casa Rosa!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday in Sicily.

Casa Rosa is a beautiful villa and has been renovated to a very high standard.

The setting is superb with views, to the front, of the coast and, to the rear, of Mount Etna.

It is an ideal location to relax and get away from things. It is so peaceful and quiet.

Ernesto, who owns the villa, was always on hand if we needed anything, including advice on where to go etc. and couldn’t have been more helpful.

Included in a very welcome “Welcome pack” were a number of bottles of wine produced from the vineyard that the property is set in. It was so nice we got Ernesto to bring us another 6 bottles.

Being only 40 minutes from the airport and near lots of local attractions Casa Rosa is an ideal base to see the lovely island of Sicily or just to chill and do nothing.

We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

perle rare

  • 5 of 5
Si vous souhaitez faire une coupure avec votre quotidien dans un cadre magnifique, une maison aussi accueillante et authentique qu’Ernesto son propriétaire, vous êtes au bon endroit. Si vous êtes passionnés de volcan et de phénomène naturel dans un cadre protégé vous avez trouvé une perle rare.
Pourquoi rare ?
La maison est à 2km de Zafferana en pleine campagne. Tranquillité assurée. L’accès final se fait par un sentier sur 800m. Prévoyez une petite voiture type citadine ou petite berline.
Le cadre est magnifique. De la terrasse vous avez une vue imprenable d’un coté jusqu’à la mer à 15km, de l’autre coté sur l’Etna.
La maison est très propre, très confortable et très bien équipé. Le chauffage au bois permet l’hiver de réchauffer rapidement et durablement la maison. La cheminée tire à merveille.
Ernesto, le propriétaire, nous a reçu avec gentillesse, générosité et simplicité. Sur la table de la cuisine, nous attendaient du pain frais, des bouteilles de vin de sa cave, fruits, légumes, saucissons sans compter le garde manger! Enfin bref de quoi bien nous restaurer à notre arrivée.
Autre qualité inestimable les conseils, la disponibilité et l’aide qu’Ernesto nous a apporté à chaque fois que nous en avons eu besoin. Que ce soit pour trouver les meilleurs gâteaux ou restaurant à Zafferana que les meilleurs excursions de l’Etna.
Bref que du bonheur et une grande envie d’y retourner.

Casa Rosa-einfach zauberhaft

  • 5 of 5
Wer sich einen ruhigen erholsamen Urlaub wünscht, ist hier genau richtig.

Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, so dass wir uns direkt wohl gefühlt haben. Die Umgebung des Hauses ist fantastisch: Zur einen Seite hatten wir freien Blick auf den Ätna und zur anderen Seite auf das Meer. Abends breitet sich das Lichtermeer der unten liegenden Dörfer aus.

Das Haus ist sehr ruhig gelegen. In direkter Nachbarschaft lebt ein Landwirt, dessen Schafe öfter zu hören und zu sehen waren. Gefrühstückt haben wir unter dem Walnussbaum. Casa Rosa ist ein guter Ort, um die Seele baumeln zu lassen.

Im Ort Zafferana ist alles für den täglichen Bedarf zu bekommen. Es gibt einen hervorragenden Fischhändler, Bäckereien, Eiscafes, Supermärkte und Restaurants/Pizzerien.

Durch die gute Autobahnanbindung sind auch längere Tagesausflüge bis Piazza Armerina oder Syrakus gut zu bewältigen. Die Ätna-Südseite erreicht man nach einer halbstündigen Autofahrt. Der Aufstieg lohnt sich.

Die Begrüßung durch die Familie Raciti war überaus herzlich. Für den ersten Tag standen bereits Spaghetti, Tomaten, Wein und Brot bereit. Für unser Wohlergehen war also bestens gesorgt.

Wir haben das Haus in unserem Freundeskreis empfohlen und werden auch selbst noch mal wiederkommen.

On one side you see the Mount Etna but on the other side the view of the coast is a truly unique show: a landscape of 150 km until Taormina, the coast of Calabria in the far north and the province of Syracuse in the south. Equally beautiful is the profile of the ancient craters on the horizon and the picturesque terraced hills nearby where Sicilian shepherds graze their sheep. A road (partly unpaved) leads from Zafferana Etnea to the pink house, built from lava rock. Casa Rosa is located about 500 meters above the sea level and is a good base for excursions to Mount Etna, to the villages of Milo, Zafferana and Trecastagni, but also to the mundane Taormina, Giardini Naxos and the tourist city of Catania which is only an half hour drive away (25 km). Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Casa Rosa. The nearest beach can be found in Praiola (9 km), a wild pebbled beach next to an impressive cliff.

Other Activities: Excursions to Mount Etna, the biggest volcano of Europe
