We decided on the spur of the moment to go to Sicily. La Rocca della Rosa had a room available for 6 nights, and we really lucked out. The setting is amazing, with views of Mount Etna from the roof-top terrace, and from our bedroom window (we were fortunate enough to get the room with the old wine-press in it). Maria was very friendly and available whenever we had questions, and was very helpful with all sorts of recommendations. We ate (and drank copious amounts of local wine) there every night for a very reasonable price, outside in the courtyard under the trees, and were served seemingly endless courses of delicious fresh, local or homegrown food lovingly cooked by her mother. We couldn’t have done better at a fancy restaurant, and were spared driving home after dinner on the tortuous roads. This place is not for you if you don’t like animals (there are 3 friendly dogs) or nature, or if you want a fancy bedroom/bathroom, but we loved it and were very comfortable, and hope we have the opportunity to go back again.
