"Great Spa Hotel excellent food with a view of Etna"
The location is very rural, in the Bove Valley north of Etna, a wine growing region, really very remote and has a spectacular back drop of the northern side of Etna the nearest town is Linguaglossa. Located 11 miles from Taormina and only about 15 minutes off the toll road.
An ideal location for trekking into the volcanic regions and getting away from everything, the views are great and facilities very good indeed, the spa and restaurant at the hotel are both recommended.
The menu offers a four course set meal with local wine (very good) at 45 Euro, A la Carte is more expensive but very good indeed, be warned you actually get 6/7 courses with the extra bits thrown in, top quality stuff.
A car is a must have and be warned many of the local roads just cease to exist without warning, a amp is needed as sat nav keeps dropping out, the staff were very helpful and really friendly English being spoken by most.
Easy drive to Etna cable car (via toll road) about an hour, the same to the airport, 25 minutes to Taormina (don't drive in Taormina park at the lower cable car is not a driving place!).
All in all a lovely setting for a few days break in a very luxurious hotel spa we would certainly return and recommend.

Fantastic hotel with superb views of mount etna and the golf course. amazing staff at your call with beautiful spacious rooms restaurant silver service outstanding all the team at Etna golf resort from reception,bar restaurant and golf can't do enough for you they are remarkable. Can't wait to go back!!!
We enjoyed our 2 day stay in this rather out of the way hotel but it is a fine base for exploring round Etna. Good value and excellent dinner.
Unfortunately we were locked out at 10.15pm after going for an evening stroll so I would suggest that a key be provided or a staff member be on duty. We did get in eventually after attracting the attention of another guest!
