Nice, clean room - with a balcony with a great view to Etna! Lovely breakfast! Our rented car was parked right outside the house. The drive to the south side of Etna took 25... More

The breakfasts are wonderful and the house has a nice pool as well. Perfectly located to visit the Casale Romana at Piazza Amerina. Emilio and his team were really... More

We really loved this place – it has a lot going for it. Very well located near the city center of Nicolosia, only 5-10 minutes walk to restaurants and shops, and only 30 minutes to the trails of Mt Etna. We received a very warm welcome from Maria and Salvo and they took very good care of us during our... More

We stayed two nights in this wonderful B & B. The owner was very welcoming and offered information about the town Nicolosi it is situated in. The rooms are excellent as well as the breakfast. The kitchen is open at all times where you can take juices, tea and coffee.

This was our second time in the property. Location cannot be better - right in the centre of Nicolosi. Maria and Salvo really make you feel at home. Furnishings are new and modern. Breakfast is superb for a B&B.

Truly a home of a poet....father of the owner who lives in the same building....a few.his poems in italian and siciliano proudly displayed around the common area......clean neat and very comfortable.....great breakfast.......but the most memorable part was the genuinely warm and kind reception of the owners and staff....something one would never find in an impersonal big city hotel.

This small b&b was a wonderful find in the town of Nicolisi near the top of Mt Etna. The place has only 4 rooms and is located on a quiet street but not far from restaurants and cafés.
