Tenuta di Fessina
A 17th century Palmento (a group of dwellings centered around the cellar where grapes and olives where crushed), hidden among old vineyards on the slopes of Mount Etna.
An ancient corner of the world, a nest hidden between two lava slopes indifferent to the flowing of time, ethereal in its nuances but vibrant with emotions, aromas and stories.
A place where one regains contact with the simplicity of the forms, a protected amphitheater naturally designed for conviviality and hospitality, creating a bond with the century old vines, with the ancient stones, with the earth and the ashes of the volcano.
Strong emotions experienced on the lava of a wild habitat.
A place of wonder therefore, experienced from the character of the structures that reinterpret the architecture and the original spaces respecting their essence, their soul.
A humanistic vision that focuses on the senses: to see the earth, to feel the stone, to breathe the memory of wine, the smells of the fabrics and the elusive aromas of the seasons. Fessina is a sensory voyage that can be evoked by a lava artifact or by a gnarly, centenary vine shoot.
Every ornament becomes a festive companion of discovery, both as an expression of pure aesthetics and as a reminder of that ancient need of man to surround himself with warmth and beauty: Sicilian lace, decorated lava stone, old iron tools, objects of local art and Sicilian history and memories mingle with the primitive nature of shapes and materials without nostalgia, letting contemporary vision expresse itself authentically and in harmony.
These elements make Fessina not just a place to be visited but to be experienced: Fessina does not simply tell a story, it’s not on the way to anywhere, Fessina is a place where the path ends as whispered by the warm wind between the leaves of the vines.
Everywhere there is a sense of proportion between the gentle lines and the different strata of materials that generate a refined elegance that is never conventional and respects tradition and conjugates beauty and wellness for our guests.
