This is the perfect place to stay on your trip to or from the volcano. Clean, tidy and quiet, close to downtown Nicolosi, warm and helpful hosts, private parking space, and a HUGE breakfast. You can get a discount on your excursion to the Etna.

“Rooms in the chalet are really nice! I did not see the rooms in the main hose. Rent a car, do not take the bus. I prefer avoid cars and planes, but in Sicilia, bus is a waste of time (never at the right place at the right time; wrong time schedules...)”
