I highly recommend this bed and breakfast because it is a second home in Nicolosi on Etna slopes.

Amazing breakfast, really confy room with tons of space, a nice bed and a good bathroom, big tv with sky to relax at night, maybe I miss some views to the Etna but that is definitely not their fault, One of the best B&B in Sicily according to my experience. Needless to say the staff (a family basically) were all... More
