Imagine hosting your wedding on an estate once owned by the Baroni del Castello di Randazzo, this Manor house dates back from 1870, when Baron Antonino, who was bored of living a flat town life, decided to find a unique spot to build his personal countryside residence.

From the front rose strewn balcony, steps lead down through the citrus groves to the Tennis court, one of the unique features of this property. The splendid L-shaped Pool (15 x 6 m) is set in a panoramic position to enjoy, on one hand, the views of Mount Etna and on the other hand the Nebrodi mountains. Surrounding the Salt water, L-shaped Pool, a palm tree private garden area for perfect relaxation, a stunning spot for your ceremony and reception. Several paths lead down through the vineyards and the olive trees.
