Villa dei Baroni Wine Resort

It is located in the heart of Carranco, at the foot of the Volcano Etna, and next to the Alcantara River Park.

At the heart of Carranco there are two villas where you can relax, enjoy sports and nature at the foot of the volcano Mount Etna, surrounded by a landscape which is truly unique. The estate, consisting of two villas with swimming pool, is the perfect opportunity to experience one of the most beautiful and varied territories of Sicily, surrounded by six hectares of vineyards, olive trees, and a Zen garden.

The residence was built in 1870, its origins are linked to the history of a noble Sicilian family: the Barons of Vagliasindi. They were looking for somewhere surrounded by nature where they could start cultivating vineyards and olive groves. The name “Carranco” means “cliff”, and “tongues of lava” in the plural.

Today Villa dei Baroni is a peaceful and secluded place, with no direct exposure to the neighbourhood but just a few minutes’ drive from the most important towns such as Castiglione di Sicilia and Randazzo, and within easy reach of numerous points of interest.

It offers a breath-taking view of the volcano, Mount Etna, which dominates the landscape, and is only 35 minutes from Taormina, known for its natural beauty, attractive coastline, historical monuments, restaurants and nightlife.
