(Automatic translation) VILLA LINDA is located in the foothills north of the city of Catania, on the 330 m. m., near the small town of San Gregorio, said "Balcony of Catania."
In 800, our grandparents, like other families Catania each year, in the second half of June were moving - on holiday - San Gregorio, to escape the summer heat of the city and enjoy the cool night air and the health move from winds, which slid down from the volcano Etna.
In San Gregorio, grandparents had an estate vineyard, part of a large and ancient feud Bourbon, where there was a house-villa typical Etna, which was the delight of us all children and cousins who came to visit us, and that in 'arc of years, they had spent in San Gregorio, a few weeks of their hot summer Catania.
After the unification of Italy, the grandparents - since the family was larger and larger - wanted to build a real house, you can live the whole year.
Around the 2000s the large residence was renovated and adapted to modern living requirements.
VILLA LINDA remained for nearly a century partially inhabited by the custodians and deep restructuring, but leaving out the elements and styles of nineteenth-century construction: monolithic jambs lava stone square, shaped, carved and hammered a chisel, porch with arch of the Romanesque style carved in white stone of Noto, just as you can see in the old family photos.
