Such a great stay in the middle of February! Very welcoming owners! Very central if you'd like to go to Etna (approximately 30mins car). Also, very central to local restaurants(approximately 15mins walk). A Breakfast to die for! A 10/10 experience and will surely visit again!

We really enjoyed our stay at sotto il vulcano. Clean rooms, excellent breakfast, area where to relax a bit. Always felt welcomed by antonella and salvo. Can't wait to go again. The B&B has its own private parking on site which is a plus for those traveling with their car.
