area: ETNA

The “Azienda Agricola Perrotta” is located 700 metres high on the slopes of Etna, in the territory of Sant’Alfio, just a short walk from the thousand-year old monumental “Castagno dei Cento Cavalli”. The farm, which borders on the Natural Park of Etna, faces the sea and a wide, suggestive landscape including Taormina, the port of Riposto and its gulf. On the opposite side, with the sea at your back, you can enjoy the majestic sight of Etna with its top craters.

To reach us exit the Messina – Catania motorway at Giarre, then follow directions to Sant’Alfio. Once passed the town, in direction Fornazzo, you will see a small village on your right, which includes the farm. On the way you will find signs of “Case Perrotta”.

An alternative way can be the panoramic provincial road which connects Zafferana to Linguaglossa, which crosses the suggestive Etna landscapes. Drive to Fornazzo, then down towards Sant’Alfio. Also in this case you can take advantage of the signs.


Points of interest

* Distances as the crow flies
Case Perrotta was born as a monastery of Benedictine monks between 1500 and 1600. In the second half of the ‘800 the land was entirely converted into vineyard and the buildings were suited to the productive and living needs. After a process of thorough restoration shifted the farm activities from winemaking to olive production for oil-making, fruit growing and tourism, known as AGRITURISMO (agriculture plus tourism).

The peculiar architecture of the estate complex, with its unusual shapes, the stateliness of Etna, the blue line of the sea, give this place a special charm and a suggestive atmosphere.
The main farm work concentrates on an Olive grove and an orchard of cherries, walnuts and various fruits. Furthermore there are grown vegetables.

Today the ancient manor has 10 comfortable rooms, which sleep 25. Each room is furnished in country style and it offers any comforts. The farm holiday is located in a quiet and central position, from where you can easily visit the area around it. In 3 - 4 days you may see all the natural, archaeological and cultural beauties of eastern Sicily. For this reason we propose convenient offers which include tours in the surrounding area. These excursions can be organised before your arrival or during your stay. The visits are planned according to your wishes and curiosities. We organize gastronomic tours, wine or oil tasting, climbs on the Etna and so on.

The abundant breakfast is very traditional, but variations may be agreed.
The farmhouse kitchen offers you the best culinary Sicilian specialities, in particular those which belong to the Etna region. When it is possible, we only use ingredients which come from our farm or have Sicilian origins. We propose an all inclusive set price menu which consists of appetizers, first courses, meat or vegetables, hot and cold side dishes, desserts and bottled wine.

Our store offers you organic seasonal fruits and the products derived from them, as our organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (voted with 2 olives by Slow Food).
