Pioppi and Betulle ( PioppieBetulle) is a family owned farm.

Originally the property was a vineyard, set within about 3 hectares (30.000 sqm) of beautiful countryside.
The house we now call “Pioppi” was a winery built in 1792 and the other building named “Betulle” was a shepherd’s hut where sheep were milked and ricotta cheese made.
Between the two houses is a wonderful swimming pool with a covered terrace, sunbeds and plenty of seating to enjoy meals outside.
The renovation of the properties started in the 90’s and has been carried out with the precise aim of being respectful to the natural environment and surroundings.
It’s now a place of peace and tranquillity, surrounded by Olive groves and beautiful Cherry trees with each private house overlooking the Ionian sea and framing the coastal towns and the pearl of Taormina.
The owners produce organic olive oil, jams and vegetables with a particular focus on biodiversity and respecting of biological cycles.  They also have chickens and provide fresh organic eggs each morning.
The major aim is to share our lifestyle and our knowledge of the area with those of you who are curious and interested. You can come and enjoy this wonderful part of Sicily, deep in the heart of the countryside, but with all of the modern facilities you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
Pioppi e Betulle… Why not!


Andrea and his family were the perfect hosts for our stay in Sicily. The accommodation was peaceful, well equipped and the pool is fantastic. We enjoyed our meals on the terrace and the wonderful views. We loved being able to fetch our own fresh eggs in the morning and being invited to join the family for Sunday lunch which was delicious and an enjoyable afternoon. We hope to be back one day soon!.

This place has everything you need: a very friendly host, a terrific location with a beautifull watch on the sea, our very own swimming pool, a well equiped house (BBQ) and a great location to either visit Sicily or simply to recharge your batteries. I can recommend a stay here any time!

We spent 5 delightful days at villa Betulle. The house is a beauty, surrounded by wonderful trees and flowers. This place is a little paradise! Andrea and his relatives are very welcoming and helpful. We warmly recommend this address!
