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

While visiting Mount Etna, we stayed at the house of the Poet Etna. We were served by friendly and helpful owners and the place was spacious and clean. The breakfast selection was great and overall we had a relaxing stay at this place. Happy to recommend it to others.

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

If you are going to visit the volcano of Europe in Sicily at 4000mt, I strongly recommend Maria and Salvatore's BB in Nicolosi. Top class warm hospitality driven by strong values and culture to serve and assist. I've been to few places that offer this quality blended with the cleanliness, fully air conditioned, fresh, airy, bright, fine Italian finished rooms.... More

We stayed at this b&b for 3 nights, it was amazing from the owners to the food to the ambience. Simply faultless. Would reccomend it to anyone. The best lodging i've ever been to plus the best pistacchio croissants i've ever had :)

We stayed at La Casa del Poeta dell'Etna for two nights at the start of an eleven day tour of Sicily. Situated in the small town of Nicolosi it was the perfect place to stay for our trip up the active volcano Mount Etna. The hosts made us feel very welcome and the varied and beautifully presented breakfast catered for... More
