We only stayed here one night; the purpose being to explore Mt. Etna early the next morning. The property is difficult to find. However, we called the owner, Sandro, & he drove into town so that we could follow him back to the B & B. Breakfast is ample & delicious. Sandro & his wife were helpful in explaining the...

Fantastic location, short walk into town. The owners will do anything to make your stay memorable and after a long drive they brought us inside, sat us down and served us coffee, orange and cakes. Breakfast was fresh, organic and large; quite remarkable. Rooms were excellent and we had a balcony. This is a fantastic location to explore Etna and...

I loved the Pistacchio croissants in the morning. The breakfast and the dinner we ordered with this lovely family was amazing! We were a big group (field trip from Uni) and they managed to get us all filled up with delicious sicilian food. The rooms were nice and tidy, WiFi was working perfectly and it felt more like a lovely...

This was our second visit at Sandro and Gabriella. Excellent lodging, superb welcoming atmosphere and to top it off an very scrumptious break fast. This guest house boasts of a private parking area including a garden which will make it ultra safe for your car and children. Keep up the good work. Until our next visit.

Great B&B. The owners were very friendly - upon arrival we were greeted with juice and coffee. They have a big yard were you can park your car in the shadow. And the breakfast in the morning was one of the biggest we had in sicily, and they do speak English!:) One downside was that our room was with a...

We stayed for 3 nights at "La porta dell etna hotel". The owners were very familiar. The breakfast was excellent. The sheets and towels and all the hotel was very clean. The hotel is only 30 minutes away from Etnaland and etna. If we have the possibility to return in Sicily we will return in this hotel for sure.

“Rooms in the chalet are really nice! I did not see the rooms in the main hose. Rent a car, do not take the bus. I prefer avoid cars and planes, but in Sicilia, bus is a waste of time (never at the right place at the right time; wrong time schedules...)”
