“Relaxing B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2014

We couldn't have been happier when we arrived at "I Rustici" B&B on our trip to Sicily to attend a family wedding. Our hosts, Nino and Sylvano made us very welcome and were extremely hospitable during our stay, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. All the rooms and apartments our large party of 24 adults and children occupied had private en suites, were clean, very comfortable and serviced daily. Bed linen and towels were changed every 3 days. There is a very large, clean swimming pool set in the beautiful garden of the hotel (brilliant for the kids!) and is overlooked by a modern restaurant with bar and conservatory, yet the main building still retains it's old Sicilian rustic charm. Breakfast is Continental, but there was always a very good varied choice. There is only wi-fi in the hotel grounds near the main building.
The hotel is in a peaceful spot situated just outside Trecastagni, within walking distance of the town and there are great views of Mt Etna. Couldn't have wished for more for a relaxing family wedding trip!

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel grounds are in a peaceful location, although you need to walk across a quiet coun...

This place has the potential to be lovely with nice grounds and a pool but the service is terrible. The sheets on our bed were damp in May. The breakfast was just packaged goods. Had to ask for a tea that was lukewarm. Had a meal in the restaurant where we were not offered a menu. We thought we might be getting a set meal but just got bread, fatty salami and two bowls of vegetable pasta. The owners have a large Alsatian that barks, growls etc. he runs loose around the grounds.

This hotel was chosen by the tour my sister and I took through Sicily. The couple who own it are Brazilian originally and could not have been more welcoming and charming. We arrived in the evening and had a delicious bowl of homemade vegetable soup in the dining room. The rear of the hotel is very modern with a beautiful swimming pool and dining room with windows of glass so as to enjoy the scenery as you dine. We were invited to join Nino, the owner, and his guests at their table, where we shared wine and freshly roasted chestnuts from the area. Also to great us were a sweet big dog, Yuri, and the neighborhood cat, Guesumina. Very homey, very comfortable in both a rustic and modern way.

Room Tip: We had the room right off the lobby -- very convenient because the WiFi is only available in the lob...

Highly recommend this clean, family run, friendly B&B. The grounds are peaceful and well kept. Has a large, clean new pool and a new restaurant overlooking the pool. The chef personally greets you and cooks to order! The rooms are quaint, very clean with private baths. Breakfast is included. It is in the country, very quiet and close to Mt. Etna. The owner Nino makes the guests feel like family visiting! Can make reservation directly over the net.

Room Tip: Located on a large property in the country side of Trecastagni. All rooms are clean, bright and quie...
