Staff is friendly and very accommodating. We needed a 7 am breakfast on both days and were served the full complement of items. We stayed two nights in a compact room with a very spacious terrace overlooking the town and further to Catania. Great deal!

We chanced upon this bed and breakfast as we had hoped to rent bikes in Nicolosi and also climb Etna. Niliana was a wonderful host. The convenience to town was great . Breakfast and accommodations were perfect for our needs. The view is nice from the balcony. The art and available literature in the b and b were another plus.... More

Stayed at La Giara on the first day of our family holiday on Sicily, off the plane and on the way to Mount Etna. It's a small family run b&b, the rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast excellent (enough for lunch too!) and owners really friendly.

We stayed two nights at La Giara during our Etna trip. This breakfast you really can call a breakfast and some hotels we have been before could learn in things of service, presentation, choice and taste...

The apartment was clean and cosy. Patrizia the host was awesome and gave us all the information about the volcano. You can get discount vouchers for a cable to Etna and have a guided tour. The breakfast was great. Definitely would come next time.
