The space

The lava stone farmhouse is located in the town of Milo (location Fornazzo) in the east area of Volcano Etna between Taormina and Catania in a scenic position and great attractiveness and natural landscape surrounded by centuries-old trees. Although it is situated at 800 meters above sea level, in the natural park of Mount Etna, it is only 15 km from the sea. The house, typical rural architecture of Etna, has been completely renovated and furnished with personal care, it is perfect for an long stay in a relaxing atmosphere. From its outer space, overlooking the Ionian Sea, the eye ranges up to Taormina and the coast of Calabria. You can get home through a private road which allows you privacy but at the same time not far from the village.
The road "Mareneve", which starts from Fornazzo, allows access to the higher areas of the volcano first through the chestnut and oak forests interspersed with terraces planted with pears, apples, grapes, nuts, and then, at a higher level, through some areas where you can see the recent lava flows alternating with coniferous and birches forests where you can go for walks using the many trekking trails or less demanding guided excursions. Just the place names of this road makes us realize that a short distance down the valley, we can reach the sea with the Natural Reserve of Fiumefreddo (the river that flows from the north-eastern slopes of Etna), the renowned beach of Marina di Cottone, the seaside resort of Torre Archirafi adjacent to Riposto with its marina and its well-known and well-stocked fish market. For ski lovers should be worth taking into account that with a few miles (in the winter months) you can reach the ski slopes.
Important Notice: because of the particular location of the house is also advisable to carry cars.
