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

This hotel was one of our absolute favorites in Sicily. What is so amazing about it is the attention and detail this family has put into creating a wonderful place for people who are visiting Sicily to stay. Ask to see the video that they put together that shows what the property looked like ten years ago when the purchased... More

There are not enough words to describe our wonderful 5 night stay at Antico Borgo Petralia. From Sara's warm welcome to the hugs with everyone upon our departure we were treated like royalty. The grounds are immaculate. The buildings that have been refurbished from old ruins with impeccable taste and design. The rooms are comfortable and spacious by European B&B... More

This property has lovely self contained units with terraces , with a central dining area and pool facilities. The setting is beautiful with a view stretching from the snow capped peak of Mt Etna down to the sea. It is peaceful and rural. The owner's family are all involved and we found Sarah to be most charming and courteous .... More

A beautiful setting nestled below Etna and overlooking the coast. The rooms are large and comfortable. All facilities as described. The family who own and run this place truly care that their guests are happy and go out of their way to ensure this. My husband wanted a very early start to cycle up Etna and was supplied with provisions... More

Absolutely fantastic! Rooms are big and well appointed with a home like touch. The whole strucure is renewed in rustical style with a lot of taste. The details show the owners' passion for their work and their customer oriented attitude. The swimming pool is gorgeous with a spectacular view onto the sea, and is surrounded by green vegetation at the... More

We rented an apartment in Balestrate on the western end of Sicily and wanted to see Mt. Etna. We decided to travel in the morning and it takes 4 hours to drive from where we were to Etna so decided we would rent a place on the mountain so we could relax and spend a day getting to familiarize ourselves...

I stayed with my husband in this rural hotel during a week in August and I must say it was one of the best decisions we made in our trip to Sicily. Sicily can be quite confusing and crowded in August and it always felt great to return to this bit of calm heaven after a day out. It is... More

Although not easy to find, this hotel was simply idyllic. From the rustic charm of a beautiful set of renovated buildings into high quality, well-considered accommodation to the lovely, genuine family service, this hotel is difficult to fault. Set on the slopes of Etna the views were breathtaking, particularly from the pool area. Each evening the family cooked a meal... More
