Agritourism (organic farming) in Etna Regional Park.

At Cirasella dell’Etna guests stay in a traditional lava-stone farmhouse surrounded by high trees in a peaceful location that affords beautiful views of the sea and volcano
An ideal spot for mounting excursions to the top of Mount Etna or such surrounding points of interest as Taormina and Syracuse.

Cirasella is also a cultural center with classes for adults and children on Yoga, Rei-ki Therapy, Theta Healing, and the ecological way of life.

Cirasella’s guests stay in a fully renovated lava-stone farmhouse dating to the mid-nineteenth century. The building once housed living quarters, stalls for animals, and a traditional “palmento” (the place for producing and storing wine).

There are four naturally cool rooms (13 beds in total) equipped with individual bathrooms, heating, TV, and separate entrances.

A changing table, bottle heater, and child’s bath is also available for parents. One of the four rooms is handicap accessible. There is, an addition, a common room located in the old palmento.

Accommodations come in three forms, which guests are welcome to arrange on a day-to-say basis:
- Bed and Breakfast
- Half Board (breakfast plus one meal, lunch or dinner)
- Full Board (all three meals).
Breakfast varies according to different tastes and we can say that is of three types.

Breakfast for Italians: milk, coffee, tea, chocolate, jams, bread, biscuits and cakes, cereals, honey from Et.

na, yoghurt, fresh fruit, eggs, fruit juices.

Breakfast for Europeans or continental: milk, coffee, tea, chocolate jams, bread biscuits and cakes, cereals, honey from Etna, yoghurt, fresh fruit, eggs + sausages, local cheeses, the herbal.

Breakfast for vegetarians, vegans: milk, coffee, tea, chocolate fudge, jams, bread, biscuits and cakes, cereals, honey from Etna, yoghurt, fresh fruit, eggs, juice + flax seeds, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, soy milk and rice, brown sugar.

Summary: one of the best ever locations in Italy, with perfect food and warmest hospitality ever. Sicily has been on our wish list for years. Our choice to stay at La Cirasella, 1. 000 m up the Etna slopes, greatly added to the indeed great experience the island turned out to be. The warm welcome already started during booking. Where Laura went out of her way to provide near instant help with all our questions. When arriving at 9 pm we were invited to the main dining table to find a wide variety of delicious dishes set out for our first of many great diners. Each morning we and the other guests were amazed at the assortment of delicious, often home cooked and healthy breakfast dishes. Indeed the nicest start of yet another day of walking the Etna slopes, visiting historic towns and strolling on the beaches. And of course enjoying Italian ice cream: -) Tip: try pistachio ice, you'll want to take a big box home with you.. La Cirasella is located in the Etna national park and a great start, some right out of the gate, for walks on the lava flows and near moonlike landscapes. From our quiet and relaxing apartment the cities of Taormina, Giarre, Catania and many idyllic small mountain towns were within easy reach. A nice bonus to all this are the warm and energetic patrons Laura and Pippo. With Laura we had nice talks over (did I say delicious already?) diner and breakfast. To us a great touch is having our meals at one big table with the other guests. We learned about Malta from our neighbours and had chats about all kinds of small and big topics. We can advice all readers looking for a place to stay in beautiful Sicily to at least check out La Cirasella as an option. You will not regret it one minute! Cordiali saluti, Eerk Hofmeester and Dorothé Verhoeven the Netherlands.

Absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft, Laura und Giuseppe sind zwei sehr liebenswerte Gastgeber, die Unterkunft ist in perfekter Lage für natur- und ruhesuchende Menschen und idealer Ausgang für Wanderungen in der Ätnaregion. Besonders hervorzuheben ist Lauras Kochkunst, das Abendessen war täglich ein Erlebnis. Nicht zu vergessen ein Spaziergang durch den alten Obstgarten mit phantastischem Blick auf den Ätna.

Siamo stati molto ben accolti dai gestori che hanno avuto un occhio di riguardo anche per i nostri amici a quattro zampe. Cordiali e cortesi senza affettazione ci hanno fornito tutte le indicazioni preziose per effettuare le nostre escursioni sull'Etna. Buona la colazione come anche la cena con prodotti locali coltivati in gran parte in azienda e ben cucinati. Una struttura sostanzialmente spartana ed essenziale col sapore di campagna vera , come noi ricercavamo. Ci si è sentiti subito a casa per la accogliente attenzione offerta dai proprietari, moglie Laura e marito Giuseppe, verso i rapporti con i propri ospiti. Bella la tenuta con una posizione fantastica proprio sotto il vulcano.

Grazie di cuore per avere accolto la nostra semplice e genuina ospitalità con benevolenza e gentilezza. Grazie anche per la recensione. Arrivederci!

Come non innamorarsi dell'agriturismo Cirasella Etna. Lì abbiamo trovato la pace, il relax, il mangiare buono preparato con amore e precisione. La natura che circonda l'accogliente struttura rustica e il connubio di saggezza e simpatia dei proprietari Laura e Giuseppe sono fattori determinanti nell'affermare che è un agriturismo dove ritornare.

Laura and Giuseppe love the simple and natural so in 1993 they decided to return to live in the country starting to rebuild the old traditional stone houses and restart farming matodo with natural and organic agriculture.

They love to do if many crafts and works varie. They are enthusiasts traditional cuisine with attention to health and prepare only the best seasonal dishes of the Sicilian tradition. I personally prefer vegan and vegetarian meals with ingredients and Sicilian recipes.

Among the hobbies of Joseph, mountain walks, trips on Harley Davison and target shooting, swimming in the nearby sea of Ripon.

Among the hobbies of Laura: floriculture, yoga and energy therapies and herbal, reading and swimming.

They both love animals very much.

Laura and Giuseppe love to spend time with their guests telling stories and habits, places and attractions of the beloved Sicily, the night before the fire or watch the stars and the sky. Not infrequently the show is given by the volcano with its fountains of fire and lava red and fuming that can be admired from here especially at night.
