The villa-resort “Salto del Corvo”, located up the hill of Mascali, (about 600 mt about sea level), hamlet Puntalazzo, is 10 min by car from the sea, 20 from Taormina, along the road that leads to Mount Etna. The cottage is an old rural building with a millstone inside restructured using materials like chestnut-wood, lava stone, a floor done in terracotta, characteristic of the rural building industry. Period furniture is typically of Sicilian style.
The house consists of two big rooms, the first one, provided with air conditioned, where the millstone was once located, is now the night area with 1 double-bed, 2 small double-bads, the second one is the kitchen with a fireplace, sofas and a typical wood-burning oven. The terrace with a panoramic view overlooks the coast, from Riposto to Giardini Naxos and Taormina and during the most sunny days you can perfectly see the coast of Calabria.
There are grapevines, olive-trees, fruit-trees of wich, during the year, you can taste the genuine products.
We loved this place when we looked it for the first time. It was (and is!) a waterfront terrace with view of Taormina and Mount Etna, a very fantastic place! We purchased the property and total renovated the House and the millstone and We planted the olive grove and wineyard with Nerello Mascalese. Will be waiting a good bottle of our wine that will welcome You!
