Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Platinum level
In 2007, by chance, I stumbled upon this place, fell in love with it and decided to devote my life to its resurrection.To bring this place, previously chosen by the monks of Saint Anna’s order for his special energy and extraordinary charm, back to life. It has become the second great project of my life. The estate Monaci delle Terre Nere is situated along the slopes of Mount Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe on the border of the Etna National Park at 500mt above sea level. My wish has been to preserve the historic identity and local traditions, more than a Boutique Hotel it is a home which I hope retains its intimacy. The house which dates from 1800 is listed as one of historical importance. It is now a place where traditional Sicilian Architecture is combined with contemporary art and living.

We stayed at Monaci delle Terre Nere for three nights and had selected this hotel for a luxurious end to our tour of south-east Sicily and it was certainly the most expensive place we had stayed in by far. We booked the double superior room Armonico through Mr. and Mrs. Smith; wh

Dear AnitaT947, Thank you for taking your time to review your experience on Tripadvisor. We highly appreciate your valuable feedback, as it brings to our attention a few important points, that will help us improve the services we offer. We are delighted that you appreciated our room facilities, charming Sicilian estate and beautiful swimming pool area, as well as our organic buffet breakfast. All of our staff is devoted to customer service, so your comments are extremely encouraging. It will be my pleasure to share your kind word with the whole team, including our farm workers that put much effort in producing the wine you much appreciated and organic ingredients for the delicious meals. We are located in the Etna area, 500 meters above the sea level, in an ideal microclimate zone which allows our guests to generally enjoy mild temperatures both during the hot Sicilian summer and during the wet winter. We would like to mention that the room you have been offered as a complimentary upgrade at your arrival, Armonico, is a Double Deluxe Room. A more spacious and comfortable accommodation than the Double Superior Rooms that was the room category that you booked. We are also pleased that you enjoyed our dining service and the bar. Our menu is based on local organic products, that have higher cost than those industrially made, but are more beneficial for health and create a true local experience thanks to their original flavors. It also features suggestions from our Chef that change daily for our standards. We sincerely hope that we will have a chance to welcome you back in the future, hopefully in the best days our warm and sunny climate has to offer. Warm regards, Katerina Kazenkina Guest Relations Manager

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive review of your recent experience at Monaci. What a delight reading your nice comments on our lovely Suite "Elegante", its admirable design with luxurious amenities, splendid views over our charming estate and spectacular Mediterrean sea! We were pleased to learn that your stay has been pleasant and comfortable and your expectations were satisfied. We are also glad that our breakfast staff has taken good care of you. We often receive compliments for our Organic breakfast, presenting an extensive choice of the best products from generous soils of Mount Etna and area. I gladly accept your valuable suggestions on adding more variety to the menu. Preparing fresh eggs a-la-carte according to guests' preferences is an individual service, that requires dedicated staff and thus involves a separate cost for us. However we have taken a good note on your comments, that will be carefully considered by our management. We have also forwarded your feedback on the meals at our Restaurant to the Chef, that will attentively look into the mentioned issues and make sure the quality of every dish is consistent and always up to our standards. We would like to thank you for your precious feedback, that is very important for us, as it helps us improve our services and make sure guests' experience is always at top level and throughoutly enjoyable. We will be looking forward to welcoming your lovely family back to our Country Boutique Hotel. Warm regards, Katerina Kazenkina Guest Relations Manager

Buongiorno, non sono a conoscenza dei prezzi per l'alloggio. La mia recensione si è basata su un pranzo domenicale di fattura ec-cel-len-te! (Anche se non "a buon prezzo"...). La struttura, che ho visitato, è molto bella, comunque. Buona prosecuzione
