Friendly and welcoming hotel on the slopes of Etna

Posted Oct 22, 2016 on Hotels
I spent three very agreeable nights at Sotto il Vulcano. It is a friendly, family run business which, as the name suggests, is ideally placed for those wishing to explore Etna and the surrounding national park. Antonella is a most welcoming and helpful hostess who is able to advise on all the various options, while her husband specialises in cycling tours. Fortunately for me, non-cyclists are also superbly catered for: there is free parking on site and the hotel is close enough to Catania and the autostrada to make day trips to Syracuse, Taormina etc easy, while offering peace, quiet and mountain air at the end of the day. The small town of Nicolosi has a number of excellent evening eating options within 20 minutes walk though they need to go some to match the breakfast spread provided by Antonella! All in all, I heartily recommend Sotto il Vulcano and will be looking to return there in the future.

Very pleasant stay at "Sotto il Vulcano"

Posted Jun 9, 2013 on Hotels
Upon our arrival we received a friendly and warm welcome from our hosts. A lot of information concerning the activities possibile (Etna) was available and they actively organised the expedition. The host's knowledge of the English language was very helpful.. Our stay at "Sotto il vulcano" was thus very enjoyable and restfull. We highly recommand this B&B.

Excellent B&B for Etna

Posted Oct 26, 2011 on Hotels
This is a comfortable, clean and welcoming B&B. The hosts are great and treat everyone like family. A great breakfast is served at one big table where there was much talking and lauging - in several languages. Hosts Antonella and Salvatore reminded us many times that they were "at our disposal". They were helpful with planning and very knowledgable about local sites. Kitchen is available for use by guests throughout the afternoon and evening, a small local supermarket is nearby.

This was a great place to stay. Room was comfortable and clean,bedding changed regularily. Breakfast was excellent,fresh and good choice.Antonella and Salvo were superb hosts,they made you feel at home and are very informative about the area.( Also very helpful when I required medication) This is the place to be to visit Mt. Etna. We booked 3 nights but were able to stay 2 more and visited other places on the Island recommended by our hosts.

Je ne fais que répéter les avis précédents. Excellent accueil d'Antonella et de Salvo. Nous sommes restés malheureusement qu'une seule nuit et avons savouré qu'un seul petit déjeuner. Salvo s'est levé tôt pour nous éplucher des figues de barbarie avant notre journée à l'Etna, réservée par leur intermédiaire auprès de Pietro, super guide parlant très bien Français. L'excursion en sa compagnie était géniale ! A recommander

très très accueillant

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: l'accueil très chaleureux
Cons: quelques problèmes avec l'eau et l'electricité, mais rien de grave
Location: à 30 km de l'aéroport de catane et tout près du volcan
arrivée tardive mais nous avons été accueillies de façon remarquable : nous avons eu un en cas copieux, les conseils de visites, petit déjeuner très agréable avec jus de fruits frais, confitures maison, laitages, gâteaux.... à volonté et dans un cadre familial. Les conseil de notre hôte ont été appréciables pour la visite de l'Etna
