Our wonderful terrace overlooks Sicily's eastern coastline from which you can admire one of the most beautiful sunrises over Mount Etna. It glows bright orange. This is our favourite secret spot for a truly magical breakfast.
Private hillside dining
There is nothing more romantic than a breathtaking view. For special anniversaries, proposals and memorable moments, choose a private candlelit dinner for two on the hillside above the main house.
Sicilian music and sundowners
Three times a week, sample cocktails and bitters whilst listening to smooth Sicilian jazz in the Convivium Bar. Experience the culture and soul of Sicily through its music..
The chef's secrets
Guests will learn the secrets of making our homemade pasta and gnocchi, prepared with old Sicilian wheat and filled with wild herbs collected on our farm. The lesson takes place in the Hotel’s own bakery, where the homemade bread, pasta and pastries we offer our guests are made every day.
Etna wine tastings
Volcanic Etna is one of the most exciting emerging wine territories in the world, with indigenous grape varieties and rare terroir. Here you have a unique opportunity to learn about these special wines through the lens of winegrowing and winemaking traditions. Using the estate's vineyards and ancient winemaking facility (palmento) as the venue, this private wine-tasting tour is designed and taught by our expert Sommelier. Join him for a guided walk through the vineyards, and private tour of the palmento where you'll sample wines from the Monaci delle Terre Nere estate and other acclaimed local producers.
