5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Spectacular location, the hotel, grounds and room were all beautiful. The food and wine was incredible and really quite reasonably priced considering they have a captive audience. Try the set menu, it's amazing - just make sure you haven't eaten all day, it's enormous! The owners were nice too. One of the best hotels we've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Don't bother paying extra for an Etna view room - the rooms at the back have lovely views of the...

I made a short trip with my girl friend to this hotel in december and I have to say that the hotel is beautiful. It‘s not comparable with big hotel chains and the employees are very friendly and helpful. But on the other hand it offers the look and feels and service of big hotels. Not to mention that the view on the etna is perfect.
I have to say that we have been the only customer in the whole hotel. But this is normal since we did not meet many visitors in whole Sicily.

I stayed here with my family (three adults and an 11 year old) and had a wonderful experience. We stayed between Christmas and New Years, only for one night (unfortunately). Because it was definitely low season, we were the only ones there, which at first was a little disconcerting as we arrived at night. The hotel is in the middle of a vineyard with AMAZING views of the mountains on one side and Etna on the other. In the middle of the night, though, we couldn't see that and it felt a bit isolated. Also because of low season and around the holidays, the restaurant was close, although the food looked wonderful.

Our fears were assuaged by the gracious host, Asela, who checked us in and settled us into our room. We got the suite at the end of the hall. 2 rooms, 1 great bathroom with the typical tub+handheld shower. The room was very nice, with two twin beds and a separate room with a double/queen (not sure which) and two skylights plus a little balcony. Asela brought us extra blankets-- it wasn't too cold; we just like snuggling under covers. Only issue with the room is that the "master" bedroom didn't have any windows (it had a skylight, though) from which to look at Etna. The room with the double beds had a great view of the Nebrodi mountains, and a little balcony. Beds were basic, but pretty comfortable, as was the furniture. If you are looking for the lap of luxury, this is not your place, but was very nice.

Asela recommended Trattoria San Giorgio in Randazzo for dinner. It's about a 5 min drive into the town, and we were really impressed with the restaurant, which was in a small square on one corner of the town. It was mostly empty (again, around the holidays), but had a roaring fire in the corner and a great barn-like appeal. It's subterranean, but with really high ceilings, and part of an old cloister. Delicious food (homemade pasta with greens from Etna, delicious porcini, great veal scallopini and an amazing osso bucco). We went back and to bed... and woke up to the most amazing views the next morning.

It was cold, so we didn't sit on the terrace looking up at Etna, but in the spring/summer/fall I am sure it is gorgeous. We certainly took pictures, though. Asela also gave us a tour of the historic wine-making operations underneath, where the owners apparently hold dance parties sometimes. I would love to be invited to one of those...

All in all, a fantastic place.

Room Tip: Get one with a view of Etna, if you can!

Feudo Vagliasindi is a lovely old Sicilian manor house dating back to the 1800's converted to a modern hotel. The view from the rooms of Etna on one side and the Nebrodi mountains on the other are simple breathtaking. Surrounding the hotel are the vineyards of the owners, Paolo and Corrado which in their own right are stunning. It's a pretty spectacular piece of nature in any direction you look.

The rooms are large, very clean, and well kept up. I slept well here. Breakfast is the standard continental fare, a very nice way to start the day on our excursion exploring Etna.

This is one of those hotels that becomes part of your heart, I'll definately be going back for another stay.

During our autumnbreak we stayed one night in this beautiful hotel with an impressive antique wine factory. We wished we could stay here much longer. The view is splendid, singing birds is what you hear, nothing else. Dinner was excellent with organic wines from the own vineyard. Breakfast with lots of cakes: yummie!.

What a splendid place to stay. The vineyard and olive groves gave it an air of tranquility, the view of Mount Etna was spectacular.
Paul and Conrad the two brothers who own the vineyard were so kind and very gracious. The restaurant and staff were excellent. Would go back only to stay longer. By far the best place we stayed at in Sicily.

It's always a good thing when someone decides to turn a historic landmark into something really beautiful. On Sicily, it's even better. There are so many abandoned, yet beautiful buildings on the island that have no use anymore whatsoever. The Feudo Vagliasindi is a perfect example of what can become of them.

We loved the place itself, we loved the wonderful views, we loved the wine and small tour through the wine cellars. Food was very good, restaurant service in the evening could be a little better, but we're not complaining. This is the kind of place that's here to stay.

To us, it seemed that the majority of the guests here are from western Europe or the US, so maybe a menu in English would be a good idea - although I still think it would be a good idea also for guests to take the small effort of just learning a little Italian when travelling to Sicily.
