Villa Rosa is an old town house with different sizes/types of rooms at different prices so it is good to telephone Alberto first to find out what there is. He speaks excellent English. He also has another B&B on a vineyard out of the town We had the huge room on the top attic floor with its own private and... More

Villa Rosa is in the middle of Zafferana, a nice little village nearby the Etna, which we could see from the private terrace. Alberto and his parents are great hosts and made us feel very welcome.

We stayed for 3 nights in September and had a fantastic time. Villa Rosa is in a stunning location in Zafferana. Our room had views from it's own private terrace over Mount Etna. Alberto is a great host and made us feel very welcome. He had very useful tips about the area, about visiting Etna, which is very easy to... More

We just spent 5 nights in the vineyard. When Alberto, the owner, showed us the house, our first response was: we want to buy this house! And after 5 days we felt the same. Only two bedrooms are rented so you basically have a house for yourself. Superb location on the edge of the town of Zafferana with a big... More

Thoroughly recommend this place. Alberto is a splendid host, who is humorous and helpful. He was full of advice as to how to enjoy the region, but relaxed with it. The accommodation is charming and is perfectly located. Zafferana is a great place to stay. It has good bars and restaurants, and is a great base for exploring the locality.

We stayed at the Villa Rosa B&B for 5 days at the beginning of July 2013. We had a great time. The room we stayed in was more like a studio, really. We had everything we could possibly want: a big comfortable double bedroom with an adjoined bathroom and a beautiful terrace where we could relax after a long day's... More

We've stayed in the vineyard villa for almost a week at the end of May and had the best of times. We have two small kids - 2.5 and 5 and the place couldn't be more fun for them. We had to watch them as otherwise they'd be in the pool non-stop and they loved exploring the garden and playing... More
