The hotel is a converted winery and dates from the 18th century so all rooms are different.
The facilities are good and the gardens are lovely.There is a large and well maintained swimming pool and the wifi is excellent.
The only negative is that it is in a rather remote and rundown part of Giarre but if you have a car that will not affect you in anyway.
On the whole I would heartily recommend this hotel; the staff could not be more helpful without exception.
If you are looking for a lovely hotel in a quiet scenic location, this is for you. Conveniently located to access Etna and nearby cities.
The food was amazing and the staff were outstanding. The room was a good size and very comfortable.
Would definitely go back.
The only negative was the outdoors pool was not heated, but that is minor.
We received a free upgrade to a Junior Suite, with split levels where our two kids were able to sleep downstairs. Upstairs had another king size bed with separate air conditioning unit. The Junior Suite was very spacious with a small balcony. I believe even the normal rooms are quite big. Rooms had no kettle though to make your own tea and coffee. Breakfast is of good quality. You can request for a packed breakfast if you have to leave for excursions or trips before breakfast time at 7am. Hotel is located in a small village, nothing much to do. So, a car is highly recommended. Mount Etna is about 35 mins drive away- something definitely worth visiting to the top with cable car and 4X4 excursion.
