A few years ago we have created an holiday home called "Casa Vacanze Dietroserra". Taking into account the big success it has had, and considering the many great reviews it received, we have made a second holiday home in the same place. It also has a great view of Etna and of the surrounding valleys.

The house is located in the town of Viagrande, about 1 km from the village,
It offers a picturesque view of the sea, from Taormina to Catania, and it overlooks the eastern side of Mount Etna.


A few meters from the holiday home there is the Etna Museum that lets you know the world and history through photos of volcanoes, thematic rooms, multimedia and 3D representations.What is more, behind the house there is the Monte Serra Park which offers nature tours, visits to the Butterfly House, entertainment for children, educational workshops, ski slope and tubing.
Within 10 minutes you can reach the picturesque fishing villages of Santa Tecla, Aci trezza and Acicastello that are characterized by beaches of lava rocks. Then in a short time you can also reach the baroque town of Acireale, the city of Catania and the volcano Etna, where you can do guided excursions. Moreover the beautiful Taormina is half an hour away.

FEBRUARY/ MARCH
Carnival of Acireale: the most beautiful carnival in Sicily and one of the best in Italy.
The baroque historical center of Acireale is the setting of thi beautiful festival. Parades of finely-crafted and decorated allegorical floats made of papier-maché are organised and acclaimed by huge crowds. Spectacular movements, thousands of lights, mutant backgrounds: the perfection that float artisans reach is absolutely stunning and requires an all-year work, as well as enough irony to meet the goal of mocking the most famous politicians and members of the star-system of the year. Other beautiful floats are decorated with cascades of flowers creating portraits and embellished by wonderful lighting systems – which is why night parades are the most attended and sought for.
The folk bands come from all over Italy to take part in the celebrations that usually last three weeks in February. Comic and entertaining bands, majorettes, folk shows, masks, music and dance performances, contests for kids and rituals: a light-hearted, thought-free atmosphere that recalls the most traditional rituals of the ancient popular feast that represented the only way for the poor people to forget their troubles and make fun of the most powerful authorities of the city.
And as it happened centuries ago, the colourful Carnival of Acireale ends with the burning at stake of “Re Carnevale” (King Carnival); this cathartic moments is followed by jaw-dropping fireworks.
A shorter, yet interesting, version of this staggering and lively celebration of priceless artistic value is repeated during summer (in August)

OCTOBER
Ottobrata Zafferanese
An interesting event is the Ottobrata Zafferanese that takes place every Sunday of October in the historic center of he little town of Zafferana (about 9 km. From the holiday home). Protagonists of each Sunday are the typical products of the earth and their derivatives: grapes, wine, mustard, honey, apples and seasonal fruit, walnuts, hazelnuts, chestnuts, pistachios, mushrooms Etna etc. .. A large space is devoted to crafts.

Une bouteille de vin et des boissons fraîches nous attendaient à notre arrivée et notre logement au pied des vignes était encore plus beau que sur les photos.

House was very nice with lovely view of Etna and surrounding area. Modern house in an authentic style, perfect for two people. Pool leaves a little to be desired as is only temporary. Would love to stay there again. We did wine tasting at Benanti (15 min walk in Viagrande) which was amazing, the best day of our holiday by far. We had a tour of the vineyard and a selection of wine and food which were delicious. Would also recommend local restaurant Gancia (?) and Picollo Mondo - both in Viagrande, authentic, and very good value. Good location to do a tour of Etna and surrounding areas from - we were lucky enough to go up Etna as it was erupting! Certainly need a car as not very much in walking distance and taxis are expensive.

We really enjoyed staying here, which is one of two holiday villas on the farm. The villa is new and well - equipped. It was a bit cosy for a family of four ( the larger Villa was already booked) but we had a great view from our terrace - we overlooked vineyards and Etna loomed in the background. The hosts were lovely - we even got a freshly baked chocolate cake. The children enjoyed the pool.

This was a beautiful holiday cottage overlooking Mount Etna, so clean, comfortable and our hosts were amazing! We had fresh fruit and locally produced wine left from the owners vineyard grown on site. I would highly recommend staying here :) We would love to return! Many thanks Gae x
