Monaci delle Terre Nere Hotel,

High up on the eastern skirts of Etna, one of the tallest active volcanoes in Europe, an enchanting resort originating from a 18th century aristocratic villa, where the harmonious coexistence of nature and humanity can be witnessed.






5 star

Sitting on an extensive 62-acre country estate planted with organic grapevines and native fruit orchard, this luxury and eco-wine resort in Eastern Sicily is the ideal location for living once in a lifetime experience. The cool lava-stone pool and a full-scale Etna winery are just some of the hallmarks of a place where guests can breathe nature and find complete relief, while respecting the principle of sustainability.

Hiking, horse riding or helicopter are some of the options to reach Mount Etna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the dramatic cliffs, crystal-clear waters, and picturesque fishing villages of Costa dei Ciclopi, known for its enchanting beauty and mythical history, or to explore the estate and its vineyards. Ayurvedic massage and private yoga sessions are also available to promote relaxation and contribute to your physical and mental wellness. Guests of Monaci delle Terre Nere are highly suggested to savour the Sicilian culinary traditions, ingredients and techniques with a healthy and refined approach in Locanda Nerello, whose keywords are slow food and seasonality, or to have a powerful drink in the majestic atmosphere of the Convium bar at the foot of the Volcano.

This boutique hotel near Mount Etna has 24 rooms and suites ensuring a unique and personalized ambiance. Each of them can host up to 3 or 5 people. The resort also offers some villas with private swimming pool: Villa Nobile, Villa Persimmon and Villa Elegante. Their panoramic views on Mount Etna, the sea or the farm combine with original art by Olivier Mourao, Sicilian artefacts and contemporary Italian design.

The bathrooms feature spacious layouts and offer plush, organic cotton robes and towels, along with a selection of eco-friendly amenities by Swiss brand Anyah.
