3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

After reading the reviews we decided to stay in Massalargia but after our stay i agree on one point only = convenient location if you wanna visit Etna.

Room (no 3, on ground floor) clean, but very basic, the only decor was a poster with "thank you notes" from people who stayed previously.

Bathroom - definitely not cleaned after previous guests ( long black hair in the sink and shower).

Breakfast - all sounds great on their website but in reality you will get a choice of 2 cereals (cornflakes, muesli), toast, orange and apple juice (made of concentrate), tea and imported marmelade. The only local product we got was honey. No cheese, salami, yoghurt of dried food as per "advert" on their website, no butter either:(

Room Tip: Seen the other room on the ground floor and it was the same as ours so i guess the "website&quo...

My wife and I got into Nicolosi later than we expected and had run out of minutes on our international phone. I went into a nearby cafe and asked if anyone knew where the B & B was. Everyone did and a man called Marco to let him know we had arrived. Marco was extremely kind and took care of us during our stay. His home is great and is located right near the bus stop to Etna. If you are planning a trip to Mt. Etna, you must book here.

It is really nice place to stay, feel like at your own home. Rooms are nice decorated and clean. You can see Etna top from the window, so it is very convienent place if you want to visit Etna.

You need a car for full comfort, for dinner it is better to drive to Nicolosi, which is in few kilometers. But Marco will tell you the places! :)

Marco was an incredible host, and the house was really a home away from home. Would recommend this home for anyone that is looking for a great base to see the sites, traveling with friends and for romantic getaways. It is one of a kind and very cozy. Thank you Marco!

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Sicily. Massalargia was one of our absolute favourites. The owner really makes you feel at home and the location is excellent for trips to the Etna, Catania and even Taormina. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, all equipped with TV and airconditioning. The breakfast was very good and is being served in a common room downstairs where all guests can meet. We will definitely come back to Massalargia!

  • Liked — extremely friendly owner and a very clean place
