About the neighbourhood
The Ionian Riviera, running up the east coast of Sicily from the bustling lava-stone city of Catania through a series of charming fishing villages and beaches to the enchanting town of Taormina, is certainly one of Sicily’s most intriguing areas. The entire coastline is dominated by the magnificence of Mount Etna, whose presence has shaped the entire area both geologically and historically from time immemorial.

Nature, food and wine

Mount Etna is undisputed king of the area, and hiking on its slopes is an unforgettable experience at any time of year. In the winter and spring, excellent skiing is possible and the upper slopes of Europe's highest volcano are rarely without snow. The towns and villages that dot the flanks of Etna, all built in lava stone, are well worth stopping off at...
Getting around
Car Hire is essential. There is a local bus service from Belpasso to Catania but can vary in reliability.
There is also a lovely way to see the sights of Etna please search for Circumetnea Railway

How to get there
Airport: Catania: 15.0 km
Railway: Misterbianco: 7.0 km
Ferry: Catania: 15.0 km
Best flights are to Catania (CTA). If flying to Palermo or Trapani hire a car as public transport will be prohibitively slow and will not bring you directly to the Villa.
From the airport you take the autostrada signed for Messina. Follow this motorway until you see signs for Misterbianco & Paterno always bearing right until you see the signs for Paterno. Follow this road straight until you see the 2nd sign for Belpasso (Zona Industriale) follow road heading to Belpasso which is sign posted. Always head up hill towards the town of Belpasso. Carry on through the centre of the town of Belpasso heading up to Etna. You will eventually come to a large white church in front of you with Condorelli's bar on your right go straight up the hill. Follow this road...
