Villa La Ginestra dell'Etna Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 22 Zafferana Etnea B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed two nights at Villa La Ginestra. It's perfectly located for visiting Mt Etna and Gole dell' Alcantara. Vincenzo and Grazia are charming and helpful. While their English is limited, they will bring in their daughter to help translate. She does speak French and with my high school French and hers, we were able to communicate very well. Great for families--they have a room that sleeps four, one that sleeps two and two rooms that sleep three. The rooms are big enough to bring in rollaways if you need them. Highly recommended.

The pros:
1)Strategically close to etna
2)Very calm quiet clean and relaxing location
3)Very kind and hospital personnel
4)Very good breakfast (with fresh local pastry/ treats picked up from nearby pastry shop)
5)A real "feel like home” B&B with good value for money

Opportunities to make the B&B even better:
1) Offer possibility to have breakfast before 8h00,for example with a reduced self service offer, also ok if without fresh pastry.
2) Stronger Wifi signal reaching the rooms (our room was with low signal hence slow navigation)

The rest was all excellent!

Stayed 3 nights at this delightful B&B on the foothills of Mt Etna. The family were all so very welcoming which made our stay most enjoyable and comfortable. The room was immaculate, very clean with crisp white towels.

The house is situated in a very quiet area within walking distance of Zaffarena town with all its restaurants and shops. The B&B is well signposted in town and is very conveniently located for exploring Etna.

Unfortunately we dont speak Italian and the owner's mother Gracia didnt speak English but this wasn't a problem as we communicated in French. Gracia is a lovely lady and made us feel at home right from the start.

I recommend this B&B highly

Room Tip: ask for the room at the front of the house with the large balcony. It is spacious and the sun rises...
