Monaci is located in a spectacularly beautiful area, with relatively close access to Mt. Etna and Taorimina. That said, it is difficult to find and more importantly, very difficult to move about the property if you are elderly or have any physical challenges. It is set amongst the incredibly rich lower lava fields of Mt. Etna. There is very little...

We had two nights here and it was very nice, the property is not like a hotel it is more personalised with different rooms located in different parts, and nestled among vineyards. The restaurant was a bit hit and miss, our first meal took nearly 2-1/2 hours to finish, and the service was slow. Most of the staff were very...

This is an unusual and remarkable property nestled in the foothills on the Eastern side of Sicily, where you are surrounded by fig and olive trees and grapes for the local wine. There is a calm that descends upon you the moment you arrive, with incredible views of both the sea and Mt Etna. The accommodations are luxurious but not...

We don't normally spend this much on a room for a night, but Monaci is absolutely worth it. We wedged it between four nights in Rome and six more in Sicily. It's a great way to take a breathe during a vacation and really relax. The resort is a beautifully restored farmhouse surrounded by 60 acres of farmland, where they...

This small hotel (21 Rooms) is a beautifully restored old farmhouse villa located on 60 secluded acres on the slopes of Mount Etna where they organically grow their own olives, fruits and vegetables. The rooms are beautifully appointed (ours came with working fireplace), clean and comfortable. Some rooms such as ours are in the main house (convenient) others are little...

Most of the rooms are actually in small villas in an astounding environment with breathtaking views. Service is great and the interior as well as exterior design is minimalist and innovative.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In 2007, by chance, I stumbled upon this place, fell in love with it and decided to devote my life to its resurrection.To bring this place, previously chosen by the monks of Saint Anna’s order for his special energy and extraordinary charm, back to life. It has become the second great project of my life. The estate Monaci delle Terre Nere is situated along the slopes of Mount Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe on the border of the Etna National Park at 500mt above sea level. My wish has been to preserve the historic identity and local traditions, more than a Boutique Hotel it is a home which I hope retains its intimacy. The house which dates from 1800 is listed as one of historical importance. It is now a place where traditional Sicilian Architecture is combined with contemporary art and living. ... more   less
