I spent one night there with my wife in May 2014. The house is slightly outside Zafferana, easily reachable by car, the owner is knowledgable and will surely help you if needed. The room was perfectly clean, big enough with a spacious bathroom. The breakfast was ok and the location is very convenient to reach Rifugio Sapienza. If I remember... More

My wife and I spent two nights at Villa Hirschen in Zafferana Etnea - great location - 10 to 15 minute walk to the center of Zafferana, so didn't need to use the car - always a blessing for me when attempting to drive in Italy. Breakfast was fine, rooms were clean and the entire residence was very well cared... More

We were given a room with a balcony facing the Etna and were able to see it erupting from the balcony. We had an opportunity to take tremendous pictures. The Owner, Mr... More

Zafferana Etnea is a delightful small hillside town. Superb views to the sea & to Mt Etna. In August lots going on in the town. Performances in the amphi- theatre, open air dancing in the centre. A vibrant atmosphere after dark in the town plazza, but not alot happens until after 10pm, so best do as the locals do, take... More

Had a wonderful stay. Mr Russo and his family can't do enough for you. It's up the hill from the town centre and is a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy square. Suggest you hire a car as buses aren't that available if you want to go further afield but to be honest Mr Russo... More

stayed 1 night in July 2011 while touring the Volcano. Very nice owner arranged for a guide to take us to the craters and to the different sightseeing areas around it. We had a spacious, very well lit, quiet and clean room, which included a nice terrace to enjoy the view of the roofs and steeple of Zaffarea Etnea (the... More
