Another variant consists of basins carved directly into the stone. With the passing of centuries the term was metonymically extended to the buildings containing these basins (which were used during the Middle Ages for olive crushing too).The main building of the property has been carefully restored and converted into residence and reception for the business. We have stone walls on the outside, partially plastered and painted in yellow and red, while on the inside we can find terracotta floors, wooden beams and exposed stone walls.The other buildings were recently built, as one can see, and boast white-painted plastered walls. On the inside, modern finishes are coupled with traits typical to the Sicilian countryside.Furniture is all high-quality and we can find 0.90 x 2.10 m beds, 1.80 x 2.00 m sofa-beds, Smeg ovens, 4 stoves (gas), dishwashers and refrigerators, large wooden Fourcault tables (both inside and outside), Philippe Starck plastic chairs on the terraces and lined chairs for the inside. Each bedroom is fitted with a 3-doors wardrobe.EXTERNAL AREAThe property is completed by 5.5 hectares of land, split among vineyard, olive grove, citrus grove and garden.The vineyard, in particular, with its 3.5 hectares, hosts mainly Nerello Mascalese vines whose fruits are base for the renowned Etna Rosso DOC. The vineyard's production ranges around 150 quintals of grapes per year.Finally, the property is fitted with a nice 14 x 7 m swimming pool with solarium and fixed shadow spots. Near the pool one can find a small outbuilding including dressing room, showers and toilet.USE AND POTENTIAL USESThe property is currently run as a hosting business, thanks to the great number of beds available and the pleasant position with view on the Mount Etna. The location is perfect to enjoy the nature of Sicily: not far from the property one can visit the beautiful ldquo;Gole dellrsquo;Alcantarardquo; (11km; 20rsquo;), the ldquo;Parco dellrsquo;Etnardquo; (5km; 10rsquo;) and some of the most beautiful medieval towns of northern Sicily such as Castiglione di Sicilia (4km; 10rsquo;) and the hamlet of Castelmola (31km; 1h).A permit has been obtained to build a new warehouse in the property.
