B&B Alfio Tomaselli

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Very welcoming hosts! We were much pampered. Pina prepared us great breakfasts. I recommend trying the chocolate pastries apart of the various homemade natural marmalades. She is very child friendly taking care even for any food we required to prepare for our 2 year child. The rooms are clean and kept tidy, enough room, kept warm too during cold days. Washing and drying of clothes was crucial for us because of our young child, and we were happy with the facilities provided. Other basic amenities such as baker, vegetable store, and pharmacist were just corners away. As we were driving with our own car we actually have been provided free space in the garage for the night which is basically under the residence. The location is superb for those who want a base in the south gate for Etna excursions. Secondly it is very close to other important destinations such as Catania, Acireale on the east side of Sicily. Pina's husband Alfio, and their son(who speaks very good English and Spanish) were both helpful in many ways ex. finding directions, suggesting good restaurants in the area and other interesting places to visit. We look forward to go back. We highly recommend to those families with young children looking for a family atmosphere.

We had a very warm and personal welcome by Pina and Alfio. The rooms were spacious, clean and everything was perfectly in order. The breakfast that was prepared for us every morning was a special treat. A great variety of (homemade) products was offered and Pina made the best italian cappuccino. You will surely not regret your stay in this B&B, because the owners make it truly a great experience. A few words of italian may still come in handy.

Lovely welcome from Pina when we arrived and she made sure we were settled in. Stayed two nights and breakfast highly recommended. Room clean and spacious and Etna only 20 mins easy drive so perfect location for touring the area.

We stayed in this B&B in april 2010 for one night before heading up to Etna.
- The location is perfect for this purpose as it is just 20min away from Refugio de Sapienza
- Clean and tidy.
- Very peaceful place.
- Breakfast was fantastic, with home made croissants and mermelade from the owner. It was great fuel for our climbing to Etna!
- Signora Pina was sooo sweet.

100% recommended if you want a relaxing place before heading to Etna.
