This renovated Palmento (house for pressing wine) can be your perfect getaway near the Aetna. However, before booking you should consider the following facts. If these are no problems or even advantages for you (as they were for us), you will love the place. First of all, for Sicily it is rather pricey. But you will have a big room,... More

We stayed here on our first two nights is Sicily. Due to flight delays we arrived at 23:00: despite the late hour Giovanni cooked us a wonderful meal and was in no rush for us to leave the table. The room as cool and beautifully appointed with a very welcome refreshing shower. Breakfast was served on the terrace. After visiting... More

We certainly recommend this palmento to all tourists visiting the true, authentic sicily and thank Giovanni, his wife and daughter and Mariella for the great food, athomsphere and kindness. The room we stayed in was large with a private bathroom, cosy, clean and the area this palmento is situated in is very peaceful. We stayed 6 days in total and... More

My husband and I stayed at Palmento La Rosa about two nights. The place is not easy to find but luckily we found the location by GPS. The place is peaceful, quiet, and, beautiful. You can see many grapes and olive trees around there. You can also enjoy breakfast at the garden and see the perfect sun rise view and... More

We stayed at Palmento La Rosa for the first two nights of our first ever visit to Sicily in early June, 2012. It is hard to find, nestled in the foothills of Mount Etna, and making our way there gave us a good introduction to Sicilian village life and an education in the hazards of Italian driving. After a phone... More

We spent three nights with Zora and Franz in Palmento la Rosa and we enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms, the garden, breakfast, dinner, and the warm hospitality of the hosts made it very special for us and our four children.

We chose Palmento la Rosa as a base to see Etna before heading down to the south coast for a week. And what a great choice it was. The setting is perfect in beautifully restored stone buildings. Though we knew the hosts Franz and Zora would prepare dinner we had no idea what a treat we were in for. Our... More

Wir hatten - einmal mehr - eine wunderbare Woche. Wurden verwöhnt wie die Kaiser und dies auf unprätenziöse, charmante Art. Schöne Begegnungen mit den anderen Gästen. Die Küche von Franz hat uns aufs Neue begeistert! Das Carpaccio «schwarze Sau» à la Franz katapultiert einen in andere Sphären (mind. Etna-Höhe!). Ein Genuss für Aug und Gaumen, dazu das knisternde Cheminée, das... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Palmento la Rosa. The building used to be a winery, but has been converted into a spacious and unusual B&B, with gorgeous, large bedrooms and delightful communal areas. The garden is smaller than it seems, but quite lovely. Breakfast outside is very pleasant. Franz and Zora make you feel like friends of the... More
