Elle is a very tranquil, but extremely interesting location. It’s uniquely known for the black earth of Etna and the lava blocks, with which both the dry stone walls of the vineyards and the villa itself are built, contrasting with the gentility of nature and the sweeping panorama. The villa, which is all on one floor, is constructed simply: you enter into the
large living room with a well-equipped open kitchen, dining area and conversation area with fireplace and TV. Large windows allow for a harmonious relationship between the inside and the outside.

Behind the kitchen area, you’ll find the large double bedroom, furnished with a large panoramic window, an en suite bathroom, and a staircase leading to a mezzanine with a sofa, which can be used as a relaxation area or for study, or in the case of younger guests, as an additional sleeping space.
On the other side of the living room, to the left of the fireplace, there’s a hallway with a double bedroom and its bathroom, separate but private. At the end of the hallway, a door leads to the laundry area, complete with a washing machine and dryer, etc.
Finally, the most spacious room, which you can access from the living room on the right of the fireplace, has an en-suite bathroom and another large window with a panoramic view.
The glazed lava stone is also featured in the interior design, where both the floors and the finishes are made with this precious material, enhancing the unique colors of the lava.

The villa is surrounded by terraces with shaded areas and comfortable sofas, a large dining area near the infinity pool overlooking the sea, and many acres of land in which to enjoy a pleasant walk amongst Inside the estate, about 500 meters from the villa or 200 meters through a narrow road with steps, there is the multi-purpose tennis court, which can also be used to play five-a-side football.

We like

The excitement of hiking the slopes of majestic Etna’s volcano, hoping to witness one of its multiple eruptions.
The wine! Villa Elle is actually at the gates of the area where the greatest wines of Etna are produced! It’s the perfect starting point for exploring the best Sicilian wineries.
You can immerse yourself in nature and tranquility knowing that just a few kilometers away you’ll find the renowned beaches and seaside resorts of Taormina, with its lively nightlife, numerous cultural shows, and events at the Ancient Theatre.

We think

This is an excellent place to stay to experience the most unique aspects of the magnificent island that is Sicily.
It’s the perfect spot to explore Etna, practice sports (the Alcantara river offers various excursion opportunities), or immerse yourself in its waters between the basalt walls with canyoning or rafting. Each season offers its sporting opportunities – and don’t forget that you can also ski on Etna whilst admiring the sea.

Things to do

  • Explore Mount Etna with a private guide. Whether you want to explore in a jeep or on foot, we can’t emphasise how much more you will get out of a trip to Etna in the company of someone who understands its volcanology, geology and history.
  • Explore the Alcantara valley, formed by the Alcantara river carving its way through lava deposited by the eruption of Monte Moia around 2400BC.  There are lots of ways to explore, ranging from the gentle riverside walks from Francavilla di Sicilia, to river-trekking and canyoning.Castiglione di Sicilia, for its weathered houses, pantiled roofs and stunning views across the valley to Etna. Don’t miss the local cheesemakers, Alcantara Formaggi, on Via Federico II.
  • Spend a morning in Catania. See the Duomo and the nearby. fishmarket, the Pescheria, and visit the Museo Belliniano, dedicated to the city’s most famous son, opera composer Gioacchino Bellini.
  • The impressive Ciclopi’s Riviera between Aci Castello and Acireale.
