This is a wonderful, small, family-run hotel just outside of Zafferana Aetnea. It was the most wonderful hotel stay I've had. The hospitality is warm, from the swimming pool area there are breath-taking views of the Ionian sea and (to a lesser extent) Mount Etna, the rooms are comfortable, everything is immaculate, and both breakfast and dinner delicious (dinner is...

We had intended to use this hotel as a base to explore the east coast of Sicily. The hotel was such a fantastic place we actually limited our exploration so as to enjoy the relaxation it afforded. The food provided by Sara and the family was exceptional in quality and proportions. If you are going to visit the Etna region,...

We spent three nights in this charming property off the beaten track. It's in a beautiful location looking out to the coast with the regularly rumbling Mt Etna behind. Staying here feels like staying with family (that you like!). The warmth of the owners was obvious from the second you arrive and they are on a never ending mission to...

We stayed at this property for a family wedding a short distance away. The family that runs it is very friendly and accommodating - we felt like family by the time we left! We were met after our journey with cold drinks then shown available rooms to select the one we preferred. While some of the rooms are a little...

We stayed a few days, mainly to see Mount Etna, and really wished we could have stayed longer. The owners have rebuit/renovated the Borgo from scratch and it is beautiful and amazing. This is the most friendly, helpful and efficient place we have been to in many years! We looked at a few rooms and they are all beautiful. We...

We loved everything about our stay except the weather, which I'm sure they would improved if they could. We arrived to drinks and cake and sat looking at the beautiful views to the sea and Mount Etna. Dinner was very good value and made by Sara's Mum and their chef which was tasty home-cooked food. Looking forward to going back...

Located not far from Taormina and Mt. Etna, a relaxing place with a marvelous staff. Lovely breakfasts and home cooked dinners if you wish. Lovely large swimming pool. Sara is a gem. Very helpful with travel arrangements, maps, area attractions, etc. Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic accomodation in Sicily. The views from this family-run B&B are stunning. Located on the mountainside below Mt Etnea, the property offers a fantastic view of the seaside as well and the ever spewing vents from Mt Etnea. One can reach several sites within an hour including the top of Mt Etnea, Taormina, Catania, and other areas...

This place is like heaven! We went there without a booking as we were travelling and had to change previous plans in the last minute. It was the best thing that happened to us! The place is amazing, nice rooms, clean, amazing views and best hospitality. The owner actually baked us a cake for breakfast after telling them the night...

We finally arrived after having some difficulty finding the hotel, but we received a very warm welcome after a busy day on Mount Etna. We had drinks and homemade almond cake before being shown to our room, which was 2 rooms and bathroom one with double and one with sofa bed so it was like a little apartment. The view...
