Scents of cherries Italy

Prices from €38 per Night
Water, air, earth and fire... Where the elements produce magic. The farmhouse “ Scents of cherries” is the best choice for spending your holidays in Sicily and bathing in the wonderful seas around Taormina. The fresh air of Mt. Etna, the clear Sicilian sea, the fruits of the land and volcanic fire of Mt. Etna create a magical, fascinating world. In the quiet countryside around Catania, a short distance from the sea and where Etna just starts to appear, you will find yourselves immersed in a dreamy atmosphere. The ancient baronial house from the 1500's with its wine cellar has been completely restored and is surrounded by a faboulous forest called “Il Salto del Corvo” (The Crow’s Leap). From the swimming pool and rooms there is a splendid panoramic view of the gulf of Giardini Naxos, Taormina, and at your shoulder you will enjoy the view of Mt. Etna's summit. Scents of cherries is a farmhouse with eight hectares of land. The farm has earned organic certification for farming with a traditional terracing system. The main product is a class of cherries known as “Durone dell’Etna DOP”, but the farm also produces blood oranges, clementines, plums and other fruits. If you want to know our land and its products, enjoy our sun and clear seas, whilst immersed in fresh air and suggestive woodlands, “Scents of cherries” is your ideal destination. In the heart of the true eastern Sicily “Scents of cherries” is located in the village of Puntalazzo, in the town of Mascali, and in the province of Catania. We are located 380 meters above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Etna, surrounded by an enchanting forest. Puntalazzo is in a quiet corner of Sicily honored by the presence of artists such as Rick Hucknall, voice of Simply Red. His winery “Il Cantante” is located here. Puntalazzo is also the retreat of Carmen Consoli, a famous Italian singer, who returns regularly to compose her songs, inspired by the warmth of the lava stone, the salty sea air and the changing colours of the sea. To us hospitality is the law We have stables and we arrange horse riding excursions in the beautiful Sicilian countryside. If you are not expert horse riders then we have an ample riding ring with sand where you can ride and even your children can learn. We can arrange excursions up Mt. Etna and along the lava paths, in the caves and along the Alcantara river, guided tours of Taormina, visits to the land of the Cyclops, Polifemo and Ulysses and we also have paths through our own woodland for trekking. It is possible to scuba dive or go on boat trips in the charming sea around Isola Bella and Capo Taormina. The farm offers rooms with ensuite bathroom, TV, air conditioning and hotel facilities. Most rooms have a sea view and some look over the swimming pool. Also available are rooms with a terrace, a 50 square meter suite, and a luxury apartment with a fireplace. There is a private parking area, a play area for children, and lawns. We have access for the disabled. We offer all the flavors of our land Breakfast is served in a prestigious dining area with views of the swimming pool. Our breakfast includes our own farm products and other local specialities. At the farm we encourage you to discover traditional flavors. You will find a wide range of typical Sicilian products many of which are our own certified organic products.
