"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!

"Mount Etna trip We would give Etna Hut a 10 V GOOD"
Etna Hut is an idylic accommodation location situated on the road heading up to Mount Etna. The property is as secure as fort knocks. In that yu feel extremely safe and at ease. We chose a room with no view, basic, under house. It was fantastic. As you stepped out of the lower fron door the view of a night time was that of Catania & Syracusa point. It was spectacular view. The owner Mimo was very nice & his wife & daughter Alice & even her little daughter of 3/5 was polite. Saying Boungiorno. At the back of the property which was an Angels hill top retreat. Were 4/5 Huts which were higher quality than the room that we had but looked superb. The pool was amazing. Tennis courts available. Menu available for drinks and wine & tour details given. No NOISE ANYWHERE.

Staff, particularly the Reception staff, were excellent and couldn't be more helpful. The facilities are outstanding particularly pools and spa, grounds, location, buildings and public rooms. To be critical, the room we were in was a bit small but with a large balcony with superb panoramic views and the bar area was a little sparse. Our shower needed some maintenance to the curtain and shower head but compared to the positives that were so many, these were minor points.

Our best B&B experience in Italy. The hosts were more than helpful in our travels. The establishment was clean and the breakfast was fit for nobility. A great experience. We will recommend it to all our friends going to Mt. Etna.
