Found on the north side of Etna, Casa Lavica is a rural house with lava stonewalls, living, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a panoramic view that stretches from the inland Sicilian landscape to the heights of the volcano’s craters. Follow a country road, prepare yourself for a peaceful and relaxing time and arrive to this black lava stone house, which color sharply contrasts the bright green of the wild Sicilian vegetation. You will be amidst antique lava flows and prestigious vineyards, such us those of Verzella & Pietramarina produced by renowned wineries like Benanti, Firriato and Terre Nere. Not far from the house a small vintage train passes three times a day around the Etna… certainly an original way of discovering the highest volcano of Europe!
Casa Lavica is a perfect gateway, shops and restaurants are at a short drive and they easily combine with day trips to the medieval villages of the Etna: Randazzo, Castiglione and Francavilla di Sicilia. No tourist traps!
The delightful gorge 'Gole d'Alcantara’, Taormina and Giardini Naxos (with sandy beaches) distance about a 30 min. drive (30 km).
Thanks to the presence of a fireplace and central heating, Casa Lavica lends itself to a cosy winter stay. Did you know that you could ski on the Etna? The closest ski-facilities are in Piano Provenzano (Linguaglossa), only 7 km away!
