Resort di Charme Pietradolce
Tourism in Sicily as you’ve never known it: only on www.exclusive-sicily.com
Resort di Charme Pietradolce will make your experience memorable.
Located within the heart of a beautiful nursery rich in Mediterranean plants, this resort welcomes its guests in a Nineteenth-Century Sicilian mansion, recently renovated with a great care for the preservation of its original charme as well as an eye for the modernest comforts. This wonderful elegant accommodation overlooks the 10.000-square-meters nursery garden, that guests can discover by attending one of the guided tours: hundreds of varieties of Mediterranean plants, with their delicate scents, carefully looked after by expert gardeners, and a beautiful collection of subtropical plants.
Everything is set to make every guest’s stay memorable: from the stunning lavic paving in the courtyard to the relaxing swimming pool surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, from the ancient cistern to the refined wine cellar, from the wide and bright halls to the quiet reading room.
Rooms are all different, and their beauty is absolutely unique. 18 rooms are available: three suites, nine junior suites, 4 standard rooms and a cosy flat – every need is satisfied! All spaces are refined and tastefully furnished with top-quality materials and details. The high-quality restaurant offers a delicious menu based on local traditional recipes; all ingredients are first-choice and very fresh, this is why we ask our guests to book their dinner a day in advance. Our cellar always provides the right wine that enhances the taste of every course: our wine is produced within the Mount Etna area, in the district of Castiglione di Sicilia – one of our varieties has been awarded by the prestigious Gambero Rosso in 2010, for its delicate taste (red berry flavors with mineral notes).
Our restaurant will be the top also for business, after a meeting in our comfortable and functional conference room: the natural scenery and the quiet of this area will always make it a relaxing day, even when it’s a working day!
Our services include a wide parking area, air conditioning, internet access, laundry service, solarium next to the private pool and a lot more; we can also arrange food tasting sessions on request for all those who wish to discover local specialties.

The setting of this charming resort is just as exclusive as the accommodation itself. The Eastern coast of Sicily is right in front of you: you can see it from the lush garden, or from the windows and balconies of the ancient mansion. Your eye will wander from the sandy beaches of the beautiful Taormina to the black city of Catania, and then you'll just need to turn around to see the astonishing scenario of the Park of Mt. Etna, with verdant woods, pleasant ancient villages and the top of the volcano. Carruba di Riposto, where the Resort is located, is a perfect base for any activity or destination you wish to visit: beaches are just 4 kilometers far, and you can easily reach the Park of Etna, as well as the city centre of Catania (UNESCO World heritage) or the stunning baroque Acireale; the enchanting world-famous Taormina with its ancient theatre and impressive overview of the sea and Mt. Etna is just 25 kilometers far, and you can also plan a trip to the magic, ancient Syracuse with its invaluable archaeological park and its charming city centre, Ortigia.
Castiglione di Sicilia is just 25 minutes away: here, we will be happy to show you where we produce our DOC Wine.
