Rural Tourism, Accommodation, Characteristic Restaurant and BarThe ideal place for an authentic rural holiday in eastern Sicily...
"Once upon a time the slopes of Etna were covered with vineyards sloping down to the sea. At that time, palmenti
, that is particular structures for grape pressing and wine conservation in huge chestnut casks, were among the most important and lively buildings of the town..."
The Holiday Farm "La Pietra Antica O' Munti" is situated in an ancient palmento
in Puntalazzo, between Etna and Taormina, eight kilometers from the sea. Wise renovation works have given the opportunity to recover spaces and lands, transforming them into a restaurant and rooms rich in charm and panoramic gardens and terraces, an ideal place for an authentic rural holiday in eastern Sicily.
"La Pietra Antica O' Munti" is situated in Sicily, in Puntalazzo, a small locality (country hamlet of Mascali) between Etna and Taormina, bordering with Etna Park
just eight kilometers from the blue sea of the eastern coast. The Holiday Farm enjoys a lucky position giving the opportunity to go to the sea, carry out tours to Etna, visit Catania, Taormina, and all eastern Sicily.>>>
The Holiday Farm has recently obtained the ISO 14001/2004 certification
Since we love our land, history, and people, its perfumes and tastes, we decided to recover the ancient palmento
in Puntalazzo, between Etna and Taormina, transforming it in the Holiday Farm "La Pietra Antica O' Munti", to gather ancient traditions and offer them to our guests in recovered places, without distorting the historical structure, but enhancing the interiors and the outer space where we welcome our guests with any comfort.>>>
