"Memorable - if not quite as good as it could be."
Beautiful rustic building - in a peaceful location, surrounded by chestnut trees, on the slopes of Mount Etna. Newly furnished room was tastefully decorated with a view of the mountain, and everything worked.
Good home-cooked dinner was reasonable value - which was fortunate, given the lack of any alternatives within walking distance. Breakfast was adequate if rather unimaginative (lacking any fresh local ingredients) - and was served outside on the terrace when the sun was shining.
The staff were friendly and hospitable, but disorganised, and spoke no English, so communication was a problem for us - and payment was cash only (despite Expedia's promise that credit cards were accepted)
We enjoyed our two-night stay, but wished for just a little more attention to detail, and a more imaginative breakfast menu. Then it would be perfect!
