Wine Resort Villagrande is set in a bucolic countryside of woodland and vineyards in the Etna Park at 700 m asl. It stands to the east of the Volcano, in a panoramic position overlooking the coast of Taormina. Wine Resort Villagrande offers a holiday in close touch with nature, coupled with the discovery of local winemaking and typical products.
