An article on Pietra Nera featured in Islands Magazine, May 2013:
"Come outside. Please, check it out." That's the invitation from two sets of French doors and a yawning window that open from the bedroom of this villa to the balcony. Even an old wooden bench insists: "Come. Sit. Look at Sicily."
The old country
So I step across the threshold and enter a space over the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Below me is an olive grove, and just over there a vineyard stretches up to the town of Piedimonte Etneo. (Go ahead, say it out loud.)
Not for show
This is the kind of chic that designers across the world shoot for. Here, it takes no effort to mimic real Sicilian architecture. It just comes naturally - and the villa is easily booked through thinksicily.com."
