Donna carmela is a lovely place to stay. It's got the right balance of stylish design, great food and friendly service. we had booked a room facing etna but instead got an upgrade to one facing the sea - well worth it as etna tends to be in cloud and you're overlooking the railway line on that side too. It's...

Wanted to rate this between Average and Very good. Area: It's a nice idyllic countryside area, occassionally spoiled by the loud passing trains. The viewes of Mount Etna and the coast are gorgeous.

We stayed for 7 nights in the Superior Suite room, which had undersold itself through pictures on the website. It was huge, stylish and comfortable- the perfect blend!

Lovely, lovely hotel with friendly reception staff, stunning rooms throughout and excellent facilities. The wine list is somewhat horrifying - hard to imagine many holidaymakers set out to spend those astronomical sums on bottles though. Jaws were dropping right around the restaurant. Some were more modest, but they needed to be sought out! The rooms are incredibly well designed and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A home in the parkPlaced in the heart of a nursery specialised in Mediterranean plants, Donnacarmela is ready to welcome you in a 19th century Sicilian house that has been refurbished in full respect of the original but given all the modern comforts. Elegantly refined, the building dominates the ten thousand square metre nursery garden. Here you may enjoy a guided tour to discover the hundreds of scents and varieties of Mediterranean plants. It is also possible to admire a private collection of subtropical plants. The courtyards in lavic paving, the ancient cistern and river pebbles, the well-stocked wine cellar and the swimming surrounded by secular olive trees, the comfortable spaces designed to relax and the quiet reading room, the wide halls and ample dining room: all this has been designed to make your stay exceptional. Ten hectares in the most prestigious wine area on mount Etna are where we produce the Doc wine for Donnacarmela. The vineyards were bought by Donnacarmela in 2006 and they are between Solicchiata and Passopisciaro on the northern side of the volcano in the territory of Castiglione di Sicilia. The vineyards all grow Nerello Mascalese, the vine that produces the most appreciated wines in this area. This is where the ‘Montedolce Etna Doc’ is born from the passion and commitment of the Faro family in an area that has wine for its vocation. The name of the wine comes from the place where we produce it. The wine-making is done in a well-equipped cellar in Mascali, the area of origin of the Nerello Mascalese, only a few kilometres away from Donnacarmela.Montedolce is characterised by its ruby-red colour, red berry scents with mineral notes, and by the complexity, persistence and elegant tannin it offers the palate.We do not only offer wine and taste, however. A little lower down the mountain side, between the Ionic coast and the first hills, it is possible to find the Mediterranean plants that have found the best environment to grow here. Thus, they develop into unrepeatable shapes and colours: the Abutilon, the Agave, the Ficus, the Cistus, the Opuntiae, the ornamental Citrus plants are all to be found in the gardens of Donnacarmela. They are the essence of Mediterranean gardens. Tese plants and flowers offer themselves to visitors in all their charm. ... more   less
