Tenuta Santa Tecla, Acireale

Get back to nature on a hideaway organic farm just outside Acireale, at the foot of the slopes to Mount Etna. Run by owners Angela and Fabio with a distinctly personal touch, the emphasis at the Tenuta Santa Tecla is very much on de-stressing. Vast Mediterranean-scented gardens and terraces look out across citrus groves and apricots trees to the Ionian Sea yet the estate’s proximity to the S114 road that links Catania and Taormina make this a great spot for exploring some of Sicily’s top spots.

The flower-filled garden is dissected by winding pathways with different areas devoted to a citrus grove, organic vegetable garden, mini-botanical garden and, for children, a playground and small farm area with Tibetan goats, donkeys, hens, geese and other small animals.

The fabulous infinity pool (22sqm) is surrounded by a sundeck with plenty of sun beds and overlooked by a terrace with sea views where an excellent buffet breakfast (fruit, eggs, cheese, pastries, bread, homemade jams and honey) is served during the warmer months. For dinner, there is a good choice of restaurants, trattorie and pizzerias in nearby Santa Tecla and Acireale.

Bedrooms are spacious and modern, ranging from superior doubles and deluxe rooms, to suites or an apartment for either two or four. The apartments are ideal for families, with a living room and kitchen.

Other facilities available include a wellness centre with a steam room and massage treatments.

Due to the location of the Agriturismo, renting a car is essential. A railway line runs near to the back of the house but trains are infrequent and therefore only a minor disturbance.


The Agriturismo is situated to the north of Acireale on Sicily’s east coast. The boutique shops, restaurants and Greek amphitheatre of Taormina are 45 km to the north, and Catania slightly nearer heading south.

Explore the authentic villages built in black lava-stone on the vine-covered slopes of Mount Etna or head further inland to the towns of Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina. Syracuse is just over an hour away.
