it is located within the vineyards. A calm place within a lively region. We simply were taken aback by the staff that was poorly organized, stressed, not capable and thus unfriendly. Obviously, they are under poor leadership. What a waste for such a gorgeous location.

Depending on your preferences, this may be just the place for you. If you want an excellent place from which to visit Etna, a relaxing environment, beautiful vistas, comfortable, clean rooms, good Wi-Fi, then this is for you. If you need to be pampered, waited on, and made to feel welcome I suggest looking elsewhere. The restaurant is very good,...

By far the best in the area, and especially to visit Mount Etna. Michele (Sicilian) and his wife, Maria Teresa (Swiss) were the perfect hosts. Nothing seemed too much trouble for Maria Teresa. The rooms were spacious, the food was amazing, the breakfast was ample, AND THE WINE, just perfect. We had all our meals on site, ordered wine for...

The setting is superb on the lower slopes of Mount Etna, we had a very interesting guided tour around the winery followed by wine tastings at lunch. The food was absolutely delicious, one course featured local sausages. The antipasti was great. The views across the vineyards from the restaurant terrace were lovely, a perfect way to spend a couple of...

Went for dinner. Choice of antipasti were supreme. The pasta was divine, and we could not finish the main course being a mixed grill. We had just left a tiny corner for a small desert. Very good wine. Will go again a stay for 3 nights and explore their vineyard.

this is a working vineyard whose location is stunning. the room was large and airy however the lack of AC made sleeping difficult even with the ceiling fan. The breakfast was lacking compared to all our other locations. Dinner started with a wine tasting which was very nice, the antipasto was served buffet style as was good, the dinner itself...

The location makes this a stunning place to stay as you have the backdrop of Mount Etna. It is very small so it is peaceful and one day we found ourselves to be the only people around the pool. The food is AMAZING, it was in plentiful supply and delicious. One day we asked if we could do some wine...

Situated halfway up a mountain in the midst of an historic and beautiful vineyard, this was the ideal spot for a relaxing break. Within striking distance of Catania and beautiful Taormina ( where there is a lively atmosphere and beautiful restaurants) we had a marvellous fortnight here. For much of the day we had the pool to ourselves ( immaculately...

We stayed for 2 days and that was too short. Lunch was more then fantastic and diner was great. Rooms were good but what is wrong with these Sicilian matrasses. Swimmingpool and breakfast were great but the food people, just go and visit for the food.

This was described as a typical traditional Sicilian lunch accompanied by local wines. The wine maker was very welcoming and he showed us his operation followed by a lunch with wine. There were only 8 of us (4 couples) on the trip and we were served a large amount of food that was all very good. The only disappointing part...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The San Michele estate is situated on the eastern slopes of Mt Etna in the area of the village Santa Venerina, at an altitude of about 500 m over sea level and on one of the main roads that leads to the summit craters.The winery and a part of the cellars are situated in an ancient building in the typical Etna style. The new cellar was built in 1999, in an innovative structure on two levels, in perfect harmony with the surrounding countryside.It is a family winery, active since 1860. Nearby other buildings surrounded by the vines are used for tourism. All around is the wonderful panorama that goes from the Taormina promontory to Capo Mulini. Mt Etna dominates this magnificent scene towering up to its summit at 3,300 m. The vineyards are in a single area, distributed on large terraces and cover 26 hectares. ... more   less
