Villa Ciancio is a beautiful farmhouse, carefully restored in 2008, built in lava stone in the early 1800s at an altitude of 1,180 meters (a.s.l.), inside the ancient estate of the Baroni Ciancio of Adrano. The rural residence immersed in a 30-hectare chestnut grove, in the uncontaminated nature of the Etna Park (UNESCO World Heritage), winds around a main courtyard where most of the rooms and public areas overlook. At guests' disposal there are: the lobby lounge bar, the "Alloro" restaurant, the terrace, the solarium, the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi. The 15 rooms, some with a panoramic balcony, have ceilings with exposed wooden beams and terracotta floors with original stone details. Villa Ciancio is located in an exceptional position to discover the wonderful landscapes of the Etna area: it is 7 km from the center of Biancavilla, 12 km from the Etna cableway and about an hour's drive from the center of Catania and Taormina.
The rooms of Bosco Ciancio, furnished with exquisite taste and elegant lines, are equipped with all the comforts to enjoy a unique stay with attention to detail. Immersed in nature, they are the ideal place to fully appreciate the peace and serenity away from the chaos.
