Reviewed 18 April 2015

We stayed here for 5 nights from 6th to 11th April 2015. The service is excellent and we were greeted very good. Breakfast was served with a wide choice of local food like ham, salami, cheese and much more. Bread, boiled eggs, cereals, biological marmalades, orange juice espresso cappucino croissants etc etc. Gabriella and Sandro are very nice people always ready to help and to serve you. We stayed in one of the chalets, very clean and cosy. A very quite and peaceful place with free wifi and private parking. Well done Gabriella and Sandro , keep it up.

Abbiamo soggiornato qua dal 6 al 11 Aprile 2015. Il servizio e' eccellente e siamo stai accolti nell migliori dei modi. Ci siamo sentiti parte della famiglia. La collazione e' abbondante con vasta scelta di prodotti locali buonissimi. Gabriella e Sandro sono delle persone gentilissimi e sempre pronti ad aiutarti e disponibili. Abbiamo alloggiato nello chalet, pulitissimo e accolievole. Un posto tranquillo con accesso wifi gratis e parcheggio privato. Complimenti Gabriella e Sandro e tanto di cappello.

We were a group of 4 friends. Excellent room (hut house), excellent location and excellent service. Owners were very helpful! Very close to transport for Mount Etna where we went for skiing there. Great breakfast too!

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 Mt. Etna excursion & even gave us a coupon that saved us 10 euro each. The town of Nicolosi is a wonderful place to stay. It is very walkable & clean, with fine restaurants & a killer view of Etna from one of the churches in one of thr squares. I would highly recommend La Porta dell'Etna.

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 around and you could not ask for better hosts.

There is ample free enclosed parking.

Room Tip: All rooms are good
