Here you will find yourself in the heart of the enchanting Alacantara estate covering 100 acres, amidst olive trees, orange groves and vineyards. This small handful of apartments in the character country house were renovated in 2009 and offer an elegant and peaceful base from where you can discover this beautiful area.
The spectacular Gole Alacantara botanical and geological park is just 3.5 km away and really is a must visit for nature lovers. Afterwards you can return to your elegant room or apartment to relax and enjoy the shared pool in a scenic spot elevated from the main road with views toward the coast. In fact when you stay here you get a free pass to Gole Alacantara which normally costs €13 per adult. Toarmina is one of Sicily's larger and popular towns with many attractions which is approx. 14 km away, and Giardini Naxos - a busy beach resort on the coast is 10 km away. Also here you are at the foot of Etna and are well placed to discover the surrounding towns and go hiking in general, though we recommend you use a guide to trek in the area of the Volcano.
Breakfast is served in a lovely room by the reception and consists of a very generous mixture of sweet and savoury delights. You can take the breakfast buffet inside the charming room or on the terrace with endless views down towards the coast. For dining out, there are the fine restaurants at Casa delle Monache just 300 metres away, or Il Borgo (both are the same owners as Il Poggio) just 1.5 km away and a number of other eateries also on the main road running between Gaggi (3.5km away) and the Gole. At all three places you can purchase the wonderful products made on the Alacantara estate which include a delicious selection of liquers made from their own fruits, olive oil and various marmalades and honey.
