Friendly and very helpful owner. Everything clean and in good working order. Good breakfast. Conveniently located in Nicolosi which can be reached by bus from Catania several times per day. Plenty of eateries nearby.
This is not a remote village and we are in Italy: it might take until midnight till it is quiet.
Where to start from... We were welcomed by the parents of the owner, who were delightful and chatty even though our Italian and their English were poor the least to say. The owner, Silvio, speaks English well and is an open-hearted person, full of useful information about Sicily in general, and especially the area around Etna. I honestly recommend to anyone coming to disregard their own plans and follow Silvio's. The room was nicely decorated and spacious, having all the basics for a short stay. The parking is safe, within the yard. The apartment is located in a nice neighborhood, restaurants and cafes are nearby. We had a great breakfast with still warm brioches, savory plate, freshly squeezed red orange juice and unavoidable cappuccino. We truly felt welcomed.
If it can be considered as a drawback, the water heating system is based on gas, so it takes some skill to find and maintain the right temperature.
Very helpful owner with many tips to eat. He organized the tour for Etna so I didn't have to take care off that and he gave me a coupon for a sandwich, beverage and coffe at the end station of the cable car. Perfect stay:)
Secured car parking. Nice modern room. Bathroom and room were very clean. Good temperature in the room. Owner of the place was very nice and helpful.
Located in Nicolosi, EtnaSpecial is a 2-minute drive from Mount Etna Park and 5 minutes from Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rock. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
