Echoing other contributors, this is a lovely family run hotel with friendly staff. The food was excellent but not an enormous variety. The main issue we had was with the attitude of the banks in the village and Sicily in general.
Many banks refuse to change sterling cash. We went to 3 banks on different days and were told things like 'come back in the morning and it will be OK'. Yet when we tried in the morning all the banks refused to change cash as we were 'not clients of the bank'. When I asked the manager why he said come back in the morning if he did not actually want to change our money, he threw a pile of papers into the air and walked away!
We do realise cash cards work but they can be expensive and changing cash abroad is usually quick and cheap. The point being we did not find a bank in Sicily that would change sterling into euros and I mention this in case others have the same problem and it left a 'sour' taste.
Etna erupting was fabulous though!More
