B & B La casa del Poeta is a very nice place to stay. Helpfull owners will meet you with a cappuccino, good rooms and excellent breakfast! You can use the kitchen and the fridge. A good start for an Etna hike.

Great helpful hosts. Very clean and new (2014) with fresh design and lots of space. The bed was actually the most comfortable bed I slept in during a one month roadtrip through Sicily. A lot of bang for the buck... Stay here, you will not regret it.

We stayed for 3 nights, and had a delightful stay. The place is very clean and very nicely designed, the room was not less than perfect, the hosts, Maria and Slavo, were so friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious with a large variety of local foods.
We couldn't ask for more! Nicolosi is a great starting point to arrive to from Catania airport, the area is gorgeous and so is the town itself. Do rent a car and have a perfect holiday in Sicily. Waiting for next time :)

Room Tip: The superior double room is perfect. Great view of Mt. Etna, a lovely bathroom with a Jacuzzi tab, a...

Mario and Salvo are a charming and very helpful couple who helped us make the most of our short stay and inspired us to return for a longer visit in the future. The room and bathroom were beautifully decorated spacious, comfortable and very clean. I can highly recommend this B and B.

La Casa del Poeta del Etna could not be better and is exceptionally good value. The house is beautifully decorated, spotless, fantastic breakfast, charming, helpful hosts, you can park outside, views of Etna from all of the bedrooms. Our room also shared a lovely roof terrace looking down to Catania. Nicolosi is a lovely village to wander round with great, reasonably priced places to eat. Could not recommend this B & B more highly.
