B&B Domus Verdiana
Ranked #1 of 5 Ragalna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2013

The hosts Vincenzo and Daniela were excellent. It was as if we had known them for a long time and we were coming home to a family vacation!
Perfectly situated in the quiet surroundings on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna and 30 minutes drive to the beach in Catania. This has to be one of the Best B & B's I have ever been to. The rooms are very spacious and clean and equivalent to any 5* hotel room I have been to.
Vincenzo and I duscussed wines and he open up some wonderful Sicilian wines for us to have and taste. He organised one evening a wonderful mezze of dips, olives, salamis' and local foods and we had a wonderful evening with Daniella,( and her mother) Vincenzo ,some guests from Malta and some friends of his family. When we arrived late at night, he organised a restaurant to keep open for us for dinner and we had a wonderful meal and house wine.
I can't say enough good things about this place. Don't hesitate to book it as the whole experience and setting is really wonderful and Ragalana is one of the prettier villages of Sicily.
Looking forward to my next trip there.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and the house is very large and most rooms have a view of the gardens and are all...

We had a wonderful stay. The hosts Vincenzo and Daniela made us feel welcome from the start. It was like coming home. Perfectly situated in the quiet surroundings. 30 minutes drive to the beach in Catania and to Mount Etna.The owners drove us to the restaurant in the evening and we enjoyed ourselves with wine and good conversation on the terrace where there also were served a delicious breakfast. The best breakfast in Sicily! We had a large room with all facilities. WiFi worked perfectly. Thank you Daniela and Vincenzo, we'll be back!

Read various reviews and the location suited me for a very brief visit to Mount Etna. Perfect host in Vincenzo, Paolo the dog is just so laid back he fits in perfectly with whole location. Everything is 5*, rooms, cleanliness, breakfast, welcome, information,,,,,, the list goes on.

I am sure there will be other nice places to stay if you are in this area but for me I will be checking availability at Domus Verdiana if/when I am back in this area.

One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed in.
1. Location: perfect. 20 minutes drive to Etna (Rifugia Sapienza). Ideal location if you are gonna have an Etna tour. 1-1.5 hours drive to Taormina. Just 25 km.from Catania.
Also 65 km.from Sicily Outlet Village (www.siciliaoutletvillage.it) - a very good shopping mall.
B&B is located on a very quite street, has a nice parking area just in front of the entrance.

2. Rooms are fantastic - extremely clean, cozy, with heating, Air condition, TV.
3. Breakfast is awesome possum :) Fantastic breakfast room; perfect coffee, cheese, bread, pastry, home marmalade, fruits, juice, ham. Everything is fresh and tasty.
4. Value for money indeed.
5. Host is the best! Very nice people, tactful, eager to help you to be up to the hilt in your Sicilian trip.

The hosts, Daniela and Vincenzo, made us feel like friends of the family during our two days stay. They suggested places to go and ways to get there, even called a restaurant that opened for us so we could get some lunch after a long drive. In the evening they invited us into their private home where we enjoyed both the drink and the company.
The room is nice and clean, the bathroom elegant. The garden is fabulous, and the place is an ideal starting place for drives around Etna. Anything else? Oh yes, the breakfast is sumptious! Enjoy your stay!

Domus Verdiana is close to Catania and Taormina, however is secluded location make it very peaceful. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Our check out time was 11.30am, however we were allowed to stay in the room until 6pm as our flight was late at night.

The owners are at Domus Veridiana are welcoming and friendly and make guests feel at home. Rooms are spacious, clean and well organised, bathrooms too are well equipped and neat. The garden is large, giving rooms a peaceful view and for those travelling with a dog, like ourselves, allowing for a great space to run, play and exercise. B'fast was abundant, delicious and served in a charming area of the house. Will definitely be returning.
