We were a group of 4 friends. Excellent room (hut house), excellent location and excellent service. Owners were very helpful! Very close to transport for Mount Etna where we went for skiing there. Great breakfast too!

We only stayed here one night; the purpose being to explore Mt. Etna early the next morning. The property is difficult to find. However, we called the owner, Sandro, & he drove into town so that we could follow him back to the B & B. Breakfast is ample & delicious. Sandro & his wife were helpful in explaining the... More

Fantastic location, short walk into town. The owners will do anything to make your stay memorable and after a long drive they brought us inside, sat us down and served us coffee, orange and cakes. Breakfast was fresh, organic and large; quite remarkable. Rooms were excellent and we had a balcony. This is a fantastic location to explore Etna and... More

I loved the Pistacchio croissants in the morning. The breakfast and the dinner we ordered with this lovely family was amazing! We were a big group (field trip from Uni) and they managed to get us all filled up with delicious sicilian food. The rooms were nice and tidy, WiFi was working perfectly and it felt more like a lovely... More

This was our second visit at Sandro and Gabriella. Excellent lodging, superb welcoming atmosphere and to top it off an very scrumptious break fast. This guest house boasts of a private parking area including a garden which will make it ultra safe for your car and children. Keep up the good work. Until our next visit. Svetlana, Larissa and Gordon.
