“very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

what can I say! a paradise of calmness embracing nature in the middle of Sicily.Aptly situated between Etna and the Nebrodi, this borgo is very well maintained, has excellent rooms and the owners make you feel part of the family. Ok breakfast is nothing out of this world but is enough. We were 2 adults and 2 kids and we had a 2 bedroomed room with small kitchenette and bathroom. Cleanliness was top and the food was excellent too. The borgo is situated just 10 minutes from Randazzo, which is a pretty village - do not miss the Sunday market! The location is also ideal to visit the northern crater of Etna as well as to visit the Nebrodi mountains. We also did their horse riding experience - very cheap and worth every penny!

All in all.....we will be back this time in Winter!

Room Tip: get a room with a view and book direct. Ask Franco for things to do!

This farm stay is located at the foot of Mt. Etna, between Randazzo and Linguaglossa, which means that you find yourself in the Sicilian countryside while at the same time just a short drive from the coast.
On arrival we were offered wine and cheese from the farm, by the generous and friendly hosts. The dinner was truly homemade and one of the best we have enjoyed in Italy. There are several vineyards in walking distance from the farm: The landscape is hilly and green with Mt. Etna as a dramatic backdrop.
In addition to the attraction of wine and cheese produced at the farm, Borgo San Nicola can organize guided hiking trips or horse riding on Mt. Etna, cooking classes, paint ball, conference facilities etc.
There is wifi, but no English speaking staff. Learn some Italian and make the trip!

It's a little heaven at the foot of the Etna!! A full contact with nature's best. Excellent family prepared food, including home grown olives, dairies, home made wine and everything coocked in a traditional Sicilian way. A family run business that after few hours, one feels like part of same family. just left the place two days ago and already planning another holiday at the same place!!
To add to the carachter of the place, the restaurant is situated in an old curch!!:-)

Room Tip: Try to book the room facing the Etna!!! It's a great view to look at especially the firs sight i...
