We had a nice holiday in Monaci;the owners,a young couple full of energy,have restored an old mansion at hotel.
Guido is a good sommelier that will let you experience the best wines of Etna and will give you good advice on nearby places to visit,very proud of his hotel.
Ada took care of most of the interior decoration with great taste and passion-the best she did you see in the reception hall!-to ask her a few suggestions to decorate our new home in Paris!
Breakfast are delicious,dinners are good and mostly vegetarian,don't forget to try Ada's blancmange,made with a traditional recipe(ask her for it!).
Staff is very nice too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In 2007, by chance, I stumbled upon this place, fell in love with it and decided to devote my life to its resurrection.To bring this place, previously chosen by the monks of Saint Anna’s order for his special energy and extraordinary charm, back to life. It has become the second great project of my life. The estate Monaci delle Terre Nere is situated along the slopes of Mount Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe on the border of the Etna National Park at 500mt above sea level. My wish has been to preserve the historic identity and local traditions, more than a Boutique Hotel it is a home which I hope retains its intimacy. The house which dates from 1800 is listed as one of historical importance. It is now a place where traditional Sicilian Architecture is combined with contemporary art and living. ... more less
