The essence of true Sicilian countryside living. Large property divided into three colonial houses each with private outdoor area; garden with swimming pool and views over the sea. Suitable for big groups and large families.

Borgo degli Aranci is an enchanting group of restored farm houses set within an orange orchard that produces certified organic navel oranges. This property has spectacular views over the sea and Mount Etna. As soon as you go through the gate, you will be thrilled and enraptured by the magnificent tree-lined drive that leads to the block of houses and 11 hectares of orange trees. Surrounding the houses, an immaculate lawn that reaches down to the swimming pool with views over the slopes all the way to the sea. The three houses are interlocking so there's the option of renting one of them and having exclusive use of the garden and the swimming pool.

Property details

Outside: At the end of the gorgeous tree-lined drive there are three charming houses immersed in lush gardens and lawns. The first one on the left is the “Pompelmo” (grapefruit) house. Next to it is the big “Cedro” (citron) house which has a patio with outdoor table for 10 that looks over the orange orchard and the sea. On the right, facing the “Cedro” house is the “Mandarino” (mandarin) house with a large patio and views over the swimming pool and the sea beyond. Not far from the pool there's an ancient well and wash-house too. The property’s owners have a small house with their own garden where they stay from time to time when in Sicily. To ensure guests privacy, however, the owners never use the communal garden or the swimming pool.
Inside: the “Cedro” spreads over two floors. On the ground floor there's a spacious living room with a dining table that comfortably seats 10 as well as a beautiful fireplace, an extremely well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a single bedroom with private entrance. On the first floor, five bedrooms in total including 3 double rooms, a twin and a single as well as two bathrooms - one with shower and one with bathtub. The “Pompelmo” house also occupies two floors. On the ground floor there's a living room with dining table, a kitchen, a small spare room and a bathroom with shower. On the first floor, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a bathroom. The “Mandarino” house has a living room with dining table, a kitchen, a bathroom, a twin bedroom and a double bedroom. The patio leads to the garden and pool area. This desirable property is smartly furnished.
If you rent the Cedro House, the other 2 houses, Mandarino and Pompelmo, won't be rented to other guests, therefore the whole property (garden and pool) will be entirely for your use.

Surrounding Area


Borgo Aranci is just two kilometres from Fiumefreddo, a small village at the foot of Mount Etna facing the Ionian Sea. It's famous for its wonderful Marina di Cottone beach which was awarded a “Blue Flag” by an Environmental group. From Fiumefreddo it's a short and pleasant drive via Piedimonte Etneo on the Linguaglossa route to Taormina (22 kilometres) and the foot of Mount Etna. There's also the "Picciolo's" Golf Course and the spectacular Alcantara Gorges in this area. The nearby fishing village of Santa Maria la Scala – bordering with the Timpa nature reserve near Acireale – is well worth a visit too. From the property it's also easy to reach the city of Catania, Syracuse’s Archaeological Park, Ortigia, Caltagirone and the baroque villages of Militello in Val Catania and Palazzolo Acreide.
