I am in love with this island, its food, its wines, its culture and its people. Domus Verdiana is a big part of that. Hosts Vincenzo and Daniela Loiacono are warm and welcoming, and make a guest feel a part of their family. My Italian is limited but between my limited Italian and Vincenzo's basic English, I came to learn so much about the local history, the island's history and, of course, the secrets of Mount Etna. The service was excellent. The food at breakfast was excellent and ample. The B & B, built over the original stone house that was hundreds of years old, is a sprawling Mediterranean style mansion with a wrap-around balcony and huge patio. The view from the south balcony of the surrounding countryside, Catania below and the sea behind, is breath-taking. The B & B is tucked away from view by a dense, lush foliage of trees and bushes so provides ample shade on even the hottest of days. Also, because Ragalna is 800 metres above sea level, the evenings, though usually warm enough to sit out without a jacket, are cool enough for sleeping that there were nights where I did not need the AC. I stayed here for five nights in July and will definitely be back. Ciao, ciao Vincenzo, Daniela e Julio. Ah, si, la bella Lula anche!
