The House of Philip in Linguaglossa

Number of bathrooms: 4

The House of Philip, located in the middle of the northern slopes of Etna, is a point of reference for those who want to delve into the ancient mysteries of the Volcano. Already from its windows it is possible to enjoy the perennial jets of steam that escape from the various craters. but it is not unusual to be able to witness a real eruption with shots of ashes and lapilli and spilling of incandescent lava.
This descends from the sides of the Mountain going to extinguish along its north-eastern slope, in the well-known Valle del Bove. On these occasions it is, of course, forbidden to approach the volcano and the safety distance remains precisely that of the House of Philip, but at times when the Lord of the Underworld rests, it is possible to go up the gentle slopes by public and private means and even on foot. in the winter season, with skis and snowshoes. On these occasions you can reach the 3,300 meters of the summit and enjoy there a show that ranges from distant Calabria to all of central-western Sicily. All with the accompaniment of one of the many capable and enthusiastic licensed guides. Basically, therefore, here from the Casa di Filippo it is possible to reach in the winter and in just 20 minutes Piano Provenzana ,, at 1800 meters s.l.m. and there to ski the skis to run along the snowy slopes well served by 5 ski lifts and a chair lift. In spring the immense slopes are all a luxuriance of all kinds of flowers and fruits but it is with the summer that you can really enjoy the strategic position of the House of Philip as the average altitude (700 m, asl) while allowing you to enjoy the daytime pleasantness of a bright and brilliant sun, refreshes the night with the lukewarm windy wind coming down from the nearby craters. The enjoyment of a clear swimming pool then does the rest. However, and this should be remembered, the sea of ​​giardini Naxos is only 15 minutes by car and with a few kilometers more you reach the Isolabella of Taormina.
Even within the estate of the small estate it is possible to wander among the olive trees and the vineyard and prepare tasty dishes on the large barbecue. With the arrival of autumn, the thrust towards the collection of mushrooms, hazelnuts and chestnuts available in all the surroundings becomes frenetic. And it is in these surroundings that the most enjoyable game is played for those interested in the environmental and territorial beauties as well as the historical-cultural ones of which Unesco has taken a good note, releasing Etna and its Park the National Heritage license. 'Humanity. The widespread lava caves, on the entire northern slope, conserve the winter ice in the summer and in the deepest gullies it is possible to meet the snow even in the month of August: well preserved snow as it is protected by the ash veil released by the eruptions and consequent "skiing" lava. These have happened since time immemorial until almost today (remember that of 1911 that gave birth to the crater of the northeast that is opposite the House of Philip or that of 2002 that destroyed the ski facilities of Piano Provenzana) and constellate everything the slope that goes up from the center of LInguaglossa up to the summit. Contrary to what one might think, this slope has become very fertile over the centuries as subject to continuous mineral enrichment due to the overflow of heavy metal salts from the depths of the craters. In addition to this, the alternation of magmatic layers with light layers of pumice ensures a perfect drainage that guarantees a continuous and healthy water exchange. If we add to this the constant flow of fresh and light winds that move from not far sea basins (the Tyrrhenian to the north and the Ionian to the east) we have a unique pedoclimatic picture made by opulent cultivations of vines, olive trees, hazels, chestnut trees and apple trees maintained free from attacks by pests and micro-organisms.
Even the historical-artistic framework of LInguaglossa is not without religious and architectural emergencies that make it an absolutely unique corner in the territorial panorama of Eastern Sicily. Founded, it is said, by the Genoese who saw in the majestic Ragabo Pineta that develops along the road, called today Mareneve, with a difference in height of 1200 meters from the village to Piano Provenzana, an inimitable source of trees for ships and resins to caulk the keels of the galleys, over the centuries had a certain administrative and economic autonomy. This is revealed even today with the presence of important public and private artifacts but, even more, in the character of its inhabitants, closed and reserved as that of ascendant historians.
