Guido
Coffa

“In 2007, by chance, I stumbled upon this place, I fell in love with it and decided to devote my life to its resurrection, which means bringing this place, previously chosen by the monks of Saint Anne’s order for its special energy and extraordinary charm, back to life. The estate Monaci delle Terre Nere is located at the slopes of Mount Etna, the biggest active 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 of the territory, hence more than being a boutique hotel in Sicily, it is a home which I hope retains its intimacy”
