This was our second time in the property. Location cannot be better - right in the centre of Nicolosi. Maria and Salvo really make you feel at home. Furnishings are new and modern. Breakfast is superb for a B&B.

Truly a home of a poet....father of the owner who lives in the same building....a few.his poems in italian and siciliano proudly displayed around the common area......clean neat and very comfortable.....great breakfast.......but the most memorable part was the genuinely warm and kind reception of the owners and staff....something one would never find in an impersonal big city hotel.

We came to the House of the Poet Etna at the end of a three-week trip through Italy. Sadly, the weather did not cooperate for us to hike to the top of the volcano as we had planned, but we enjoyed our stay regardless. Maria is a wonderful hostess, her breakfasts are a showpiece of Sicilian generosity. The pistachio-cream filled... More

This is a great place to stay. The hosts are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are kept very clean and are very well maintained. The area is nice as is Nicolosi. I would not hesitate to return here for the next visit to Etna, or to give my recommendation for staying here.

We really appreciate the warm of the family, they suggest places to visit, to eat, etc.. And the most important how clean and relax is to be in his place. If you are around this area don't miss it. Fantastic breakfast, my best B&B in ITALY

We stayed in an upstairs room with access to a balcony, views to mt Etna, a roomy bathroom and walk in robes. The rooms are all upstairs and therefore access for people with disabilities, children or heavy luggage could be an issue - but the climb is worth it! The hosts are super friendly, helpful and warm. we felt like... More
