Monaci Delle Terre Nere, Located in the foothills of Mount Etna, really is a fine hotel. This hotel embodies everything a five star hotel should be in terms of design and creativity.

After parking next to the ‘Rolls Royce Only’ sign, we were met by a friendly member of staff who escorted us to reception. The lobby is a large, open plan room within the main villa. With a huge dining table as the centrepiece, and big art dotted around - this is an area where a lot of thought has been put into the finer touches.

“This is a hotel with more than simply a beautiful façade - this hotel has a heart.”

We were invited to have an espresso at the bar, whilst waiting to check-in. We willingly obliged, and relaxed into one of the bar’s large, comfortable sofas. Shortly after, we were shown to our Dependance Tannico suite, which comes complete with a hot tub. Our suite was one of two in a separate out building - the two suites are on the upper level of the building, and boast a wooden decking area, and deck chairs. This is a beautiful space to enjoy a sunny afternoon.

The suite itself is light, spacious, and fresh - the lounge area includes a white sofa, a desk and wall mounted fire. From the lounge you walk through to the bedroom, which features a four-poster bed. The bathroom is located on a separate level via a few steps. Electric windows and blinds are set within the bathroom’s ceiling, creating a beautifully light and airy atmosphere.

As well as the interior of the hotel, and the finishing touches being simply gorgeous, this is a hotel with more than simply a beautiful façade - this hotel has a heart. We were very pleased to learn that Monaci Delle Terre Nere is, in fact, eco-friendly as well.

We would certainly recommend Monaci Delle Terre Nere, and are looking forward to returning ourselves.
