Etna Massalargia
Ranked #9 of 16 Mascalucia B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We found Massalargia late in the evening and without announcing our arrival. This was no problem at all and we were helped immediately! Owners are superfriendly and helpful! Rooms are bright, spacious and clean. During breakfast there is enough choice. There is also enough place to park your car. It is a few minutes out of the centre, but this is not a problem if you have a car. It is easy to go for dinner in the centre, there is sufficient parking space in the centre. Massalargia, a great place, I would definitely recommend it!

The B&B is in a good location if you want to visit Etna. The room and the bathroom was clean and has wi-fi access. The breakfast area was clean too. Desire is very nice and helpful. She co-operated when we had a problem with the shower and solved it immediately. She also can give you tips about the area, where to go etc. Nicolosi is a sweet town close to the B&B and there are good restaurants there too. One night we went for dinner in Pedara, it is nice too. The accommodation has a drive-in and Desire also allowed us to park inside.

Massalargia was a haven for us. The owner is brilliant. He is extremely friendly and makes you feel very at home. Even though you just pay (a very reasonable and fair) rate for the room you have the run of the house. The breakfast is plentiful and is served with a smile and a dance, if you are lucky! It is also very convenient for climbing Etna and has a super Pizzeria just up the road. Lovely stay.

The place is really nice, everything is clean and comfortable. The owner is really welcoming and funny. He gave us a better room 'cause it wasn't occupied. Good quality price rate. You can go without any doubts.

Marco is a very friendly and nice host, room was clean and for a good price and the best was that we could have breakfast even very early in the morning when we were leaving for Etna. For us it was one of the best B&B during our trip in Sicily

After reading the reviews we decided to stay in Massalargia but after our stay i agree on one point only = convenient location if you wanna visit Etna.

Room (no 3, on ground floor) clean, but very basic, the only decor was a poster with "thank you notes" from people who stayed previously.

Bathroom - definitely not cleaned after previous guests ( long black hair in the sink and shower).

Breakfast - all sounds great on their website but in reality you will get a choice of 2 cereals (cornflakes, muesli), toast, orange and apple juice (made of concentrate), tea and imported marmelade. The only local product we got was honey. No cheese, salami, yoghurt of dried food as per "advert" on their website, no butter either:(

Room Tip: Seen the other room on the ground floor and it was the same as ours so i guess the "website&quo...
