The Estate

Pietraperciata estate is a green oasis between Mount Etna and the sea, 7 km from Taormina and the beaches in Mazzarò and Giardini Naxos.

The property belongs to the age-old Feud of Schisò, and the House of Alliata di Villafranca inherited it through the Prince's paternal grandmother, Princess Vittoria San Martino di Pardo.

Pietraperciata estate has always been loved by Grandma Vittoria and the Prince's Father, who wished to live there all the year round, a dream now fulfilled by his son.

Prince Gabriele spent his holidays in the estate for the first forty years of his life, and then decided to establish his own residence in this heavenly spot.

The estate mostly grows citrus fruits (lemons, oranges and tangerines), but also a high-quality olive oil from centuries-old olive trees.

Following an age-old family tradition (the Prince's great-uncle, the Duke of Salaparuta, founded Cantine Corvo winery), Prince Gabriele planted a small vineyard a few years ago. The red wine he obtains from it is really special, as everything else in Pietraperciata estate: the atmosphere, the colours, the fragrances...

The holiday you dream is here in Sicily, in this property a stone's throw from Taormina, in our charming houses immersed in the green of gardens and citrus orchards and close to the seaside.

Pietraperciata estate is 1 km from the seaside, 6 km from Taormina centre, 10 km from Alcantara Gorges, 50 km from Catania airport and 95 km from Syracuse, and it's the perfect starting point for a visit through Eastern Sicily.
