“More than excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

This was our 4th stay in a years time and definitely there will be many more times Antonella and Salvo make you feel more than at home.The breakfast is superb everything freshly baked and the jams are more than delicious,not to mention the pistacchio croissants.If staying in nicolosi sotto il volcano is the place to stay .

We had a wonderful stay at the self-catering Apartment very close to the B&B with private parking and full amenities including Central Heating- the hosts (same as of the B&B) were very sweet and made sure that our stay was comfortable, which it was. The children really enjoyed having an 'attic' bedroom all to themselves with a view of Mount Etna from their window :) The neighbourhood was quiet & very close to a local mini market.

could not have picked a better place to stay especially for Mt Etna. The management went above and beyond to provide the best service I have even known in a place. Antonella is like a mother hen making sure all her chicks are safe and having a good time. We could contact her any time and she would advise us or come and get us. Breakfast had everything we could wish for and if you wanted a different cereal they would go and buy it for the next day. They taught us how to use the coffee machine and we could help ourselves when we wanted plus use anything in the communial room. The rooms were ideal and were cleaned and tidied up every day. It is in the nice town of Nicolosi and you can get the bus to Etna from there. I cannot praise this place and it's owners enough.

Room Tip: Any room would be fine here

well this was my second stay at Sotto il vulcano and will deffinatley go again. The hosts Antonella and Salvo give you that home feeling and the rooms are very clean. If travelling with a car parking is not a problem. The b and B is only a short walk to a supermarket and the city centre. The Bfast is prepared Freshly each day and quite a good choice to choose from. Attractions such as etna etnaland and others are also very close. good service of WIFI too

Value for money. I really like this place. Management is very helpful and welcoming. It is located in a quite place and there is no problem for parking your car as you can park inside the yard. Breakfast is excellent.

Our stay at Sotto il Vulcano was simply perfect, friendly owners, clean rooms, warm atmosphere, excellent breakfast, located few minutes from Nicolosi centre and mount Etna. Difficult to find without GPS so I recommend following one to get there without trouble :) I already miss the warm pistachio croissant, and freshly squeezed Sicilian oranges!
