Friendly and helpful owners, modern and stylish rooms - the hole family loved the place. We had two big rooms at the upper floor with nice bathrooms and a balcony. From both bedroomwindows you can see Etna (even though the windows are quite small).

Great helpful hosts. Very clean and new (2014) with fresh design and lots of space. The bed was actually the most comfortable bed I slept in during a one month roadtrip through Sicily. A lot of bang for the buck... Stay here, you will not regret it.
