Luxury at the foot of Mt Etna

Loved this hotel, lovely rooms, pool and views over the ocean as well as, of course Mt Etna. Had an excellent dinner at the onsite restaurant. Would definitely return. Only small negative for us was that it was a little hard to find. After the initial sign points the way the final sign to the driveway turn in is quite hidden and we only saw it on our second time around...could easily be remedied by putting it in a different place or making it more prominent.

Peaceful hotel in stunning location

We had a last minute change of hotel as the previous one (Vila Neri) contacted us the week before travel to say they could no longer accommodate us, therefore, we were a bit apprehensive. Have to say though it was really lovely, stunning location with distant sea views one side and Mt Etna the other. Beautifully designed hotel, our pool suite was spotlessly clean and modern. We were in 301 which was nearest to restaurant which slightly obscured wonderful view so think other rooms would have been slightly better, plus outdoor room space is very open so rooms 302-305 would perhaps be bit more private, however, only 15 rooms in total so it is very small, peaceful, relaxing hotel. Breakfast and evening restaurant food was lovely, though unfortunately restaurant wasn’t open for lunch the day we were there. Overall a tranquil paradise - you must try the amazing clementine jam!

Quite simply - really great !

A beautifully restored hotel, newly opened in an idealic position between Etna and the sea. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Salvo upon arrival, no hint of irritation at the late hour of our arrival, in fact, quite the opposite, he went out of his way to make sure we were " fed and watered" and this kindness went a long way to help us relax, after our terrible ordeal at the Car Hire office in Catania. The rooms are light, fresh and airy, with simple modern furniture and extremely comfortable. Some suites and rooms are set within the main villa and some by the pool. The first have better panoramic views and the later are perhaps, more convenient for the pool. All have some outdoor space and pretty areas of garden are abundant. The pool is a salt water infinity pool and has stunning views. The vibe of the place is chic, but low key, breakfast and lunches on the terrace are typically Sicilian and as with all areas of the hotel overseen by the extremely friendly staff. I think their web site under sells the place and this is part of the charm, it gently delivers so much more than you expect, especially from a service point of view, we left feeling like members of the family that would be welcomed back and that is the mark of a really great hotel.
