As a family with two middle aged children (Age 10 & 11) we found both the concept and the management imaginative. As an developing concept it has both pluses and minuses, here's our take: The old Monastery was purchased from a family and is being slowly converted into a boutique style hotel. The main building houses several suites, the office... More

Sicily at its best! The rooms were exceptional, the food and wine were great. Service was very friendly and everything was done to make our stay special. You must buy their Olive Oil which is one of the best ever. They are passionate about their wine production, their oil, the beauty of the nearby Etna, and they're most passionate about... More

We arrived in this hotel at night, and since the hotel is located in the countryside it looked very dark and scary at first. The lighting was very minimal on the pathway from the carpark to the reception and it got us really worried. However, once we entered the reception, we were greeted warmly by the staff and were offered... More

Fake overbooking, no warning, we found out by chance on arrival at 7 p.m. when we called them to have directions, after a long day traveling. We are afraid but there is no room for you! We where sent after a free disgusting meal (not even the worst trattoria) to a similar hotel 10m away..We ended up completely lost in... More

This "estate" had previously been home to Monks. The present owner has turned this into quite a beautiful setting. The grounds are full of fruit trees, vegetable gardens and of course olive trees. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dinner is offered and the meal was very good but quite pricy. This is nestled at the end of a... More

Nestled on the slopes of Mount Etna, this establishment offers a unique hotel experience that will not leave you indifferent. The hotel offers lodging in rooms located in the old farm house, but also "bungalow" style rooms spread out on the wine terraces surrounding the old farm house. They are at different walking distances to the main building, where breakfast... More

The surroundings and the building are beatifull. Our room was big and quite confortable, tastefully decorated. But I felt some of the things were not very good quality and they coud break at any moment. The bathroom was good and big, except for the shower which as I said before it felt cheap and dissapointing. Wifi was excellent. The owners... More
