“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”
“Sicily in 60' seconds"
Daniella e Martin are two friends turning life into an eternal holiday. They chose Hotel Monaci delle Terre Nere and the resort's estates to tell about our island.
A minute of pure magic.
The Travel Two
Life at Monaci
Back to the roots –
a true quality of life and a delicate luxury.
There is no TV in the rooms.
It is a place where you can completely relax and unwind.
Monaci has spacious outdoors:

Monaci means flavors and colors, but also intense scents and silence.
A walk through the alleys of the estate is a journey through the fragrances of the herbs and plants and the calm of its surroundings.
Monaci is an Eco-bio certified estate.
That’s why we don’t use monodose products; all detergents are homemade and they do not contain additives or chemicals.
A nice and relaxing walk through our 46 hectares estate, visiting our farm, could help you appreciate this place. During your stay at Monaci, make sure you go on a tour around the estate, to fully understand Monaci’s identity and philosophy.
Enjoy the place, the Sicilian cuisine and the refined wines of this generous land.
Monaci delle Terre Nere is deeply committed to the Slow Food Movement. We are passionate about food as an element of authenticity as well as an experience itself and are fully involved in the production of what we serve to our guests. We strive for a self-sustenance supply of our restaurant and the recovery of the territory, starting from farming. Monaci’s organic farm produces Aci trunzu Kohlrabi, a Slow Food Presidium.
From the sunrise drinks on the terrace, to the herb route where guests can take a stroll in our herb garden, the slow pace of each experience at Monaci has been thought to give you a precious gift: time.
