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.

And the breakfast in the morning was one of the biggest we had in sicily, and they do speak English!:) One downside was that our room was with a... More

We stayed for 3 nights at "La porta dell etna hotel". The owners were very familiar. The breakfast was excellent. The sheets and towels and all the hotel was very clean. The hotel is only 30 minutes away from Etnaland and etna. If we have the possibility to return in Sicily we will return in this hotel for sure.

This Bed and Breakfast is the ideal place for bike touring stays due to its close proximity to Mount Etna and the surrounding roads that one can enjoy in this part of Sicily. The good thing here is that your beloved bike is secure within the gated courtyard of this clean and well run place. Daniela and her husband as... More
