About giuseppe riggio

I'm a writer of book guides about Etna and Sicily

giuseppe riggio purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why giuseppe riggio chose Trecastagni

After forty years of passion - and several books- dedicated to Etna I decided with a friends family to restore an old stone house on south side of the volcano. We started in 2008 welcoming guests and from that date we are still continuing with great satisfaction

What makes this farmhouse unique

View, calm location, relax pool

Country house on the Volcano Etna in Sicily. Enjoy an astonishing panorama over the sea and the coast running from Taormina to Syracuse. Walk in our huge garden surrounded by chestnuts wood and go exploring Mount Ilice, the inactive volcano opposite the house. Casa Etnea is the perfect place to stay and relax or to go back after a long day of visiting. It is located at an altitude of nearly 1000 metres (a.s.l) but just 7 minutes away from the typical Sicilian village of Trecastagni, that offers you cinema, pizzerias, restaurants and shops.
