We are Lorenzo&Marghe, a young open-minded couple that moved to Sicily 4 years ago to take up work again in Lorenzo's family countryside estate that is located in the mesmerizing alcantara valley at the foot of Mt. Etna.
The landscape we are submerged in is wonderful and quiet.
We will provide you with a comfy private room overlooking mt. Etna and a bathroom to be shared with us.
Also, cooking together will be a nice experience to be shared and of course we will provide for food.
At the estate there's plenty of activities to do like gardening taking care of the house, restoring old furnitures, giving us a help with the visits and tours and least but not last helping us out with our 4 lovely dogs.
There is no need to be strong, but of course willpower and love for Nature and animals are really appreciated.
Even if Lorenzo will be there most of the times during the day, we would suggest this experience to couples (lovers, friends or relatives...) because it is a secluded and submerged by nature place therefore in order not to feel too alone or isolated.
There are frequent buses from Moio Alcantara and Randazzo to Catania and from there you can go anywhere you want but Please note that we are located 3 km away (20 minutes by bicycle) from the closest village (Moio Alcantara) so people staying with us should not miss civilization too much and really love nature and tranquillity.
We would be happy to give some lifts up if we plan it together in advance because we are really busy in high season and you can't always count on us as for a lift.
AVAILABILITY: we still have few availability for 1 person for this two period:
27/28 August - 2/3 October
2/3 October - 4/5 November
Hope to hear from you soon! :-D
