We stayed in this hotel between Christmas and New Year even though the place is closed during in winter. Apparently a booking mistake has occured, but the extremely friendly owner family decided to welcome us nevertheless. And not only that: they provided us with the full hotel service including breakfast buffet and five course dinner. Anybody enjoying home-style Sicilian cooking... More

We stayed at the Antico Borgo Petralia for one night as it is a very convenient base for the excursion to Mt Etna. It is a very nice place run by a lovely family who will do anything to make you feel welcome and at home. A special mention for the wonderful home-made cakes! ;-) I would definitely recommend this...

My family stayed for 10 days at this wonderful little haven - a micro village-like hotel on the edge of Etna. Views are spectacular and 360 degrees - the east coast and countryside of Sicily as well as Etna which lit up with lava at night! The family with the wonderful Sarah as host does their best to make you... More

How-to reach: The Antico Borgo Petralia is easy to find: at the end of Zafferana Etnea there is a dark red sign written in baroque letters. You just follow the sign. Landmark: The Borgo is pretty big with beautiful sights both ways: the sea and the mountain etna. You arrive in front of a gate, after ringing the bell the... More

I believe that all the positive comments mentioned by other visitors are - in fact - to be multiplied by a factor 2 to even closely describe this excellent place. This agriturismo is being run by a friendly Italian family who are providing wonderful hospitality, serving good food & wine and offering good support for touring the area.

Antico Borgo Petralia has everything: from a pool, to excellent wifi, to clean and beautiful rooms and a way of making you feel safe and welcome. It's fantastically rebuilt from ruins with a pretty good eye for detail. Breakfast is included and good; dinner is optional and good but not in any way special. The views on the Etna and... More

We stayed for four nights at this wonderful hotel and can only recommed it wholeheartedly. The owners have transformed a small hamlet into a beautiful hotel village. They have obviously poured their heart and soul into this enterprise and the attention to detail is amazing. The buildings are set in a landscaped garden with several terraces and a beautiful pool.... More

If you want to stay in the mountains, and visit Etna etc, then please stay here. Easy to find, fabulous grounds and rooms, and the family owners could not do more to make you feel welcome. The breakfast is varied and excellent,- home made cakes and pastries sublime. The evening meal was really good, and excellent value for money. Views... More

Antico Borgo Petralia lies beautifully high on 650 m, between the Ionian Sea and the living craters of Etna. Both present for your eyes when having breakfast, dinner or take a swim in the pool. The great Sicilian nature surrounds you at this family own hotel, just outside the town of Zafferana, a region famous for its honey. You will... More
