Characteristic property with stunning sea views.

"Il Palmento" is a villa with a private saltwater pool (chlorine free) and a verdant garden located on the eastern slopes of Mount Etna, ideal for families with children or a group of friends.

As well as the wonderful exterior with its panoramic sea view terraces and dining areas for alfresco lunches and dinners under the stars, the interiors of the main house and cottage are also welcoming and comfortable.

Guests reviews

“Maison formidable, beaucoup plus belle que sur les photos, avec un jardin parfaitement entretenu et une grande et belle piscine. Les hôtes sont très professionnels, et de très bons conseils sur les activités alentours. Nous y retournerons très volontiers.”


The agency that manages the house has been very friendly and always available. They also took excellent care of our needs. The tips on site about shopping and directions were great.The view, from the house is fantastic, we enjoyed our stay very much.


Wir hatten hier eine perfekte Woche. Das Haus ist eine alte mit Liebe zum Detail restaurierte weinmühle. Wenn sich das Tor zum Grundstück öffnet bietet sich ein fantastischer Blick auf das Tal und Meer. Das ganze Grundstück hat liebevoll gestaltete Sitzgelegenheit im Freien, die den Aufenthalt abwechslungsreich und kurzweilig machen. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, und der Blick vom essplatz unbezahlbar! Der Pool ist kalt aber schön. Auch der Kontakt mit der Agentur war perfekt, wir konnten ohne Aufpreis am Abreisetag bis 14 Uhr im Haus bleiben. Durch das zweite kleine Haus auf dem Grundstück eignet es sich besonders für einen Urlaub mit zwei Familien, wie wir es waren! Wir können die Gegend mit dem kleinen Bergdorf Trecastagni und das Haus nur weiterempfehlen! Es war im Oktober zwar etwas kühler dort oben aber jeden Cent wert! Wir kommen gerne wieder.


We had a very nice stay in Palmento Trecastagni. Mario waited for us until very late and guided us to the well hidden house. The old mill has been restored and decorated with much taste, it is really a beautiful and unique property.The kitchen is well equipped. Terrace, garden and pool area are wonderful, with a view of the sea and the whole area north of Catania. In October it gets a bit chilly in the evening and the pool is really refreshing... The location is very quiet but a bit outside of town, you really need a car to get around, then it's only a 5 min drive to Trecastagni. For other destinations you need to get to the highway at Acireale, which is a 15-20 min drive through rather chaotic villages. All in all, we would certainly recommend staying here, both for families or a group of friends!


We visit Sicily by the end of August. The house and the garden is wonderful and we (in total 6 adults) totally enjoyed our time here. From the pool you have a great view over cantania and the sea. The house is well equipped and the real estate was very kind. They gave us great tips and answered within a short time. Thanks a lot for your great hospitality!
