We booked this B&B based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor. We (a family with 3 children (aged 10-12)) stayed 7 days in Domus Verdiana (2 rooms next to each other), and can only confirm all the good things we read.
The B&B is situated in Ragalna, a village on the southern slopes of the Etna, half an hour drive from the airport of Catania, nearby to Mount Etna natural park and about 50 minutes drive to Taormina and one hour to Syracuse, the two highlights of Eastern Sicily.
The nice building, surrounded by a big garden, has spacious rooms, excellent beds and bath rooms and free WIFI. The extensive breakfast with homemade marmelades and authentic local products, was really exceptional. But what really made the difference, were Vincenzo (who speaks English very well), his wife Daniela and their son Giulio, the great owners of the B & B, who really do everything to make you feel at home and feel part of the family. When Vincenzo heard that we are wine lovers (as he is ☺ ), he drove us every night to the restaurant and back home, so we did not have to drive ourselves.
We can hardly imagine a better B & B: it offers all comfort of a hotel combined with all charms of a B&B. Very warmly recommended. Oh yeah, our kids mention the most child-friendly dog they ever saw: Lula.
Thank you, Vincenzo, Daniela and Giulio, for the wonderful week !
