“A splendid place to stay when you want to visit the Etna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

Angela and Francesco are a very friendly couple who run a nice bed and breakfast in Nicolosi, they help you whenever they can, with all kind of information. It was the only place in Sicily where we got such a great breakfast; we loved the lemon- and orange jam, the croissant filled with pistache cream, sandwiches, cheese, eggs, meat, juices etc. Moreover customers get a 20% discount when visiting Etna, so in stead of 53 euros, we paid 44 euro per person. A place to recommend!

This B&B is slightly outside the center of Nicolosi, but only about 5 mins away by car, (10-15mins by foot). The host,(the lady of the house), was very friendly but only spoke Italian, although she told us that her husband spoke English. She offered us a discount for the ski pass and also ski rental. This is a great place to stay if you want to ski on Etna south, (which is the bigger resort), especially if you have a car. Nicolosi is a nice quaint village, but has all the necessary amenities, (supermarkets, good restaurants, etc..) it also has a small ice skating ring which is worth a visit if your evening is free.
The breakfast was very good, with bread, croissant, salami, hams and cheeses, boiled eggs, yogurt etc..
The room was of good size, (we slept in a triple room), and quite comfortable

This quaint B+B is at the foot of an old lava crater, in Nicolosi which is, I believe, the closest town near the Etna; its a bit off the town center so its quiet at night. The owners are an extremely helpful, nice couple and we felt completely safe staying there.

For those using a Garmin GPS its better to follow the owner's simple instructions on getting there, inexplicably Garmin puts you though a convoluted pointless detour just before you get there.

I stayed for 2 nights with a group of 6 people, the Etna House is incredible value for money and the owners are very helpful, friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean, well turned out and were a very good size. The location is perfect for Mt Etna and is but a short stroll from the town, I’d recommend the B&B to anyone and will certainly return myself. The website actually gives very accurate pictures of Etna House, so you won’t find anything different when you arrive.

B&B Etna House is a very good location to visit the Etna. It's only about 20 km to the Rufio, where there are lots of climbing and skiing facilities. The owners of the house are very friendly and helpful and give theirs guests ample information about the region. The rooms are well equipped; for breakfast you get all you need. The house is well sign-posted and is only at walking distance tot the centre of Nicolosi with lots of restaurants.
