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

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.

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.

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
