Monaci delle Terre Nere is a 62 acre estate with an amazing rustic-chic country house hotel dating back to 1800, situated between the Ionian Sea and Mount Etna in the east of Sicily. It has breath taking views of the mountain and coast, an organic restaurant and pool surrounded by olive groves, citrus trees and vineyards.

The Local Area

Huw's View

Monaci delle Terre Nere was listed in 2013 Conde Nast Traveller’s best 150 new hotels in the world. It is a true boutique hideaway on the slopes of Mount Etna, 9km from the coast.

This very individual style hotel has passionate owners who recreated the original 19th century farm buildings into a small hotel filled with objets d’art from their travels all over the world.

It is also very eco-friendly with 50% of their energy being supplied from the sun and wood and the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner using only locally grown seasonal produce, including the wine!

Set in 60 acres of olive groves, citrus trees and vineyards, it is an ideal place to unwind in peace and tranquillity with amazing views of Etna and the sea, yet with unique contemporary rustic-chic accommodation. Excursions can be organised but car hire is essential for exploring the local area.

The owner Guido and his staff’s enthusiasm and passion for their land, organic produce and ethos makes for a very memorable stay.
