Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa ★★★★

I burn, I pine, I... dine and drink fine wine in the luxurious lap of Mount Etna.

By Rhona Pearce, VeryChic correspondent
Mount Etna is the highest active volcano in Europe. “Shooting out globes of flame, with monster tongues that lick the stars...” Virgil gives us what was probably a first-hand description of an eruption in his epic poem, 'Aenid'. Not, perhaps, the most serene, inviting place to visit? Think again. Its fertile soil creates rich land for agriculture and orchards, and gives life to its extensive vineyards, making the lower slopes of the mountain and the plain of Catania in the south a verdant idyllic jewel in Sicily's crown. Right in the heart of such an abundance of green lies Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa, a peaceful, heavenly retreat, far from the hellish heat of those fires that are said to have forged thunderbolts for Zeus.
