I will warmly recommend this place for the comfort and the kindness of the hosts. One of our best place during our summer trip. Breakfast is good, with fresh croissants filled with chocolate and marmalade. We arrived very late around midnight and they support us in finding their house by phone. Very good stop before exploring ETNA.

Stayed 3 nights at this delightful B&B on the foothills of Mt Etna. The family were all so very welcoming which made our stay most enjoyable and comfortable. The room was immaculate, very clean with crisp white towels. The house is situated in a very quiet area within walking distance of Zaffarena town with all its restaurants and shops. The... More
