A soulful retreat
Monaci delle Terre Nere is a stunning contemporary boutique hotel on the slopes of Mount Etna, Sicily in the little town of Zafferana Etnea, halfway between the volcano and the beaches of Arcireale.
Designed and created by owner Guido Coffa this 19th-century house has been meticulously transformed into a refuge of design and style against the backdrop of original stone walls and features which have been kept and restored wherever possible. The traditional Sicilian architecture is the ideal canvas for the contemporary art displayed throughout this pocket gem.
This discreet hideaway, surrounded by an organic farm, is a soulful hideaway, far away from the hustle and bustle of stressful urban living.
The beautiful pool nestles in the garden and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. There is a nature trail for those wanting to explore the area on foot and tours of Etna can be arranged as well as wine tastings.
We recommend you hire a car so you can enjoy the best that the area has to offer - beaches are only 10 minutes away by car and a visit to Taormina is a must. Holistic Massages can be arranged with a bit of notice.
Surrounded by organic fruit trees, vineyards and olive groves you can enjoy the fruits of the land and some of the finest wines from Etna for lunch and dinner.
