A lovely hotel, set on the slopes of Mt Etna, surrounded by country and lava flows. Very quiet. The hosts were lovely, and nothing was too much trouble; always happy to help. Bad weather meant powercuts, but they didn't last long. On leaving, I did leave behind a couple of things in the wardrobe, but after a few e-mails, the... More

The family who run the hotel gave us a warm welcome and we had good service throughout our stay. Our room could do with some redecoration & the shower panels were falling out but the bed gave a...

We discovered this little gem by driving around Mt Etna and looking for an accomodation. When we arrived at this nice Agriturismo, we almost instantaneously fell in love with it. It's a really calm, quiet and lovely place. And the dinner was one of the most delicious ones we have tasted in all of Sicily! It's only a pity there's... More

We travelled in 10 (a school party) from Zimbabwe. We stayed for 2 nights at this BB. Our Hosts, Michele and his father could not be more helpful. We were the only ones there and therefore enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay. The food at the restaurant is superb, very tasty and lots of it! This BB is the perfect... More

We were lost in the mountain and had been driving for hours. It was a great relief to set camp here. The restaurant was really good too!

Located at the end of a quiet lane high up Etna volcano, this retreat seemed very promising at first. On our first evening though we were confronted with a rather noisy kitchen airco. Our room faced the entrance and the parking lot. The latter wouldn't have caused much of a problem were it not for a bunch of partying people... More
