We booked at the last minute through Airbnb as we needed somewhere to stay after climbing Etna that day. We had the room on the top floor with a lovely private terrace. If you crane you neck to see around a tree, you can see Etna. Alberto was very welcoming and helpful. He found us a parking spot in an... More

The B&B is close to the... More

Another great stay at Villa Rosa! We have been coming to Villa Rosa for years. We love the area and the people and either stay in the town house or the vineyard house. Both locations are great! The rooms are comfortable and clean. Villa Rosa is a great place to be based in Sicily and take day trips or excursions... More

We had a lovely short stay at Villa Rosa, just before going for an excursion on the Etna. Very comfortable and spacious room, family atmosphere and a great breakfast. The host, Alberto, is very friendly and helpful, speaks English, and can provide all information about the area.

This was first B&B experience for us. We were staying there with our two years old daughter. The place is perfectly situated in the very center of Zafferana Etnea.
