This business has a centre town b&b and a b&b guesthouse 1 mile out of town set in an old vineyard. You have to check in in town and then go out to the vineyard with a family member. Alberto runs the show with the help of his ageing father and he is a wonderful host who has perfect English... More

We had a lovely short stay at Villa Rosa, just before going for an excursion on the Etna. Very comfortable and spacious room, family atmosphere and a great breakfast. The host, Alberto, is very friendly and helpful, speaks English, and can provide all information about the area.

This was first B&B experience for us. We were staying there with our two years old daughter. The place is perfectly situated in the very center of Zafferana Etnea. Ideal for good dining on evenings, but also very well placed if you want to explore east coast of Sicily. The host, Mr Alberto, is very friendly and helpful person, always... More

We liked this place very much. Large garden, huge room (ask for Grandfathers's apt.) with good linen and great bed, good breakfast, very centrally located 20 metres from main church and square - parking was easy - park out front, meet the host and then drop off bags and park car right around corner on side street. Easy. You won't... More

Alberto was an amazing host, who went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed and at home. He is extremely knowledgeable on local information and very helpfully advised us on activities, walking routes, transport and places to eat. The B&B was beautiful and extremely well situated just off the main square of Zafferana - the town itself is lovely... More

The accommodation is very well equipped, spacious and tastefully decorated - possibly the best place we've ever stayed! It is set within an emerging vineyard and has a lovely terrace and swimming pool. It is a couple of km from the attractive town of Zafferana Etnea and is well located for excursions to Mount Etna. Nothing is too much trouble... More

We stayed at the Villa Rosa for 3 nights in may this year. A nice house with swimmingpool (although is was still to cold to have a swim), very good breakfast, good location. But the best souvenir is surely the hospitality and friendliness of Alberto, our host. He gave us a lot of information about the Etna and other places... More

We stayed two nights this November and were well looked after. The shot is very friendly and the breakfast with momma is fantastic. Well placed for Etna and an interesting town in itself. The top floor room is spacious with a great balcony but some sloping ceilings low for tall men like me. Very enjoyable.
