VILLA TERRE NORMANNE 13

Sicilia - Catania - CASTIGLIONE DI SICILIA

Description:

The 15-acre property is surrounded by its vineyards and extensive land, it features an infinity pool overlooking mount Etna, beautiful guestrooms with sweeping views, stylish furnishings, open fireplaces, al fresco dining areas and outdoor cooking facilities. Here you will find everything you need for a large group of friends and family to spend some quality time together. The heart of the main house evolves around the open space of 80 sq. m. Its living area is dominated by large comfortable sofas. The dining area can accommodate 16 persons around the large dining table and the kitchen is a dream come true for any aspiring chef. A few steps below the living and dining area is the original millstone in the “palmento” where the grapes were once crushed and left to macerate. Here you can help yourself to the private wine cellar with DOC wines from the Etna Region, including Terre Normanne’s own wines. Like all traditional farmhouses the Tenuta consists of several buildings. The main house is on two floors. In the old days, the owners lived upstairs and on the lower floor, known as Palmento, the wine was made. Several smaller houses were used as shelters for the animals, tools and staff. All of which have now been converted into rooms.

Il Concierge Team di Emma Villas sarà a vostra disposizione per qualsiasi urgenza o necessità durante la vostra permanenza. Tutti i numeri telefonici vengono forniti con l'invio della documentazione di Viaggio.
