Very clean & sweet guest house with friendly owners/staff who try to help you every way they can. The breakfast is very good too. The guest house is situated in Nicolosi and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby to try.

Nicolosi is a small town but very pretty and with some great restaurants! The B&B was very nice - it had a play area which our little one...

This is probably one of the nicest and most accommodating B and Bs in the whole of Italy. The husband and wife who run it show great hospitality to their guests.

Such a great stay in the middle of February! Very welcoming owners! Very central if you'd like to go to Etna (approximately 30mins car). Also, very central to local restaurants(approximately 15mins walk). A Breakfast to die for! A 10/10 experience and will surely visit again!

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed a great week long stay here in October 2016. The hosts were fantastic and brimming with local knowledge, tips on things to do and recommendations on the best restaurants to try in the evenings. The breakfast is amazing, you will definitely not be hungry. We will be recommending this B and B to any friends...
