You can find the beautiful rural Relais of Monaci Delle Terre Nere at the foothills of the still-active Mount Etna volcano. This boutique hotel has been certified as both bio and eco. Its own organic farm spreads out on 16 hectares, blessed with olive groves, citrus trees, and vineyards. As you would have guessed, at the on-site restaurant, you will be served the tasty dishes made exclusively from the grown ingredients on the farm. Apart from the excellent food, you can enjoy the panorama from the terrace on the Mediterranean Sea.
The estate is so big, you will be provided with a map not to get lost. The rooms, however, are limited to a small number of 15—more room for privacy and you. There are 7 different styles of rooms, and they come with no TV or phone. They come with nice details, like wooden beams, fireplaces, rustic walls, terraces, balconies, and modern art paintings on the walls.
Monaci Delle Terre Nere has reserved its historical identity. At the same time, the combination of traditional Sicilian architecture and modern art makes it a place hard to miss if you are planning a vacation around Mt. Etna.
