We had a wonderful time at this rustic agriturismo, and enjoyed staying in the wine press room--well-described elsewhere--which had a lovely view of Mt. Etna. The room and bathroom were more than adequate, but the unique delights of La Rocca della Rosa lie in the warm, lovely welcome from Maria and Franz, the superb meals prepared by Maria's mother and the beautiful setting. Maria helped arrange a terrific hike up Mt. Etna for us with a local tour guide, arranged meals, provided delicious breakfasts--complete with their fresh eggs--and was unfazed by any request. She and Franz went above and beyond on our last day, extricating our car when we managed to drive it over a stone wall.
