Baroque and boutique at the foot of the volcano

Three reasons why you'll love it here

  1. A boutique hotel at the foot of Etna, Sicily's spectacular volcano
  2. The tantalizing mix of antiques, art and design
  3. The rural traditions of Sicily, at the dinner table!

With the volcano on the one side, the sea on the other, Monaci delle Terre Nere farmhouse perfectly reflects the nature of the surrounding land: a land marked by contrasts as stark as they are seductive.

The retreat at the feet of the Volcano

One moment you're admiring relais Monaci delle Terre Nere's beautiful baroque façade, the next you're in a gorgeous contemporary home. Few Sicilian hideaways manage to juxtapose old and new, country and urban with such elegant ease.

The hotel has just six, generously-sized suites, all individually decorated with meticulous care and attention to detail.

At farmhouse Monaci delle Terre Nere you can expect to enjoy the warmth of a country house together with amenities worthy of Sicily's finest hotels, in rooms in which old stone walls, exposed wooden beam ceilings and antiques effortlessly combine with sleek Italian designer furniture, air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

Sicily at the table

The food at Monaci delle Terre Nere is fantastic. Almost all of the ingredients used to prepare the Relais' delicious cuisine arrive direct from the fields surrounding the hotel, from the organic fruit and vegetables to the honey!

A tasting of the wines produced on the slopes of Mount Etna, a stroll through the Terre Nere agricultural estate, a visit to Sicily's historic wine cellars: just a few of the experiences to enjoy and remember - forever.
