"Hotel Residenza Petra" is a renovated baronial building that preserved some parts of the original architecture and the "arte povera" period style. It is in the historic centre of Petralia Soprana, the highest village of the mountain chain of Madonie, at 1147 metres above sea level. Here silence is not a luxury and life flows slowly between evocative landscape and breathtaking sunsets. Fresh air, greenery and nature are excellent cure, both for adults and for children, to free your mind and your body from the stess built up in the cities.

We stayed here on a rainy May day and enjoyed the cosiness of the renovated room, with underfloor heating and warm bathroom. With its high ceiling I think it would be equally attractive on a summer day. The hotel staff were welcoming and friendly. We ordered tea and they bought it up with a bowl of biscuits. The breakfast was exceptional because of a nifty little device on the buffet table that cooks a hardboiled egg to your specifications in minutes. The server rushed over and operated it for me, before I mistakenly cracked open a raw egg, thinking it was a cold hard-boiled egg as on other buffets in Sicily. IA warm soft-boiled egg was a treat! But the rest of the buffet was good too - not just pink ham and yellow cheese but traditional sausage, good cakes etc.

We were greeted by a friendly welcome and the level of service continued throughout the stay. The hotel staff were helpful throughout and the 24hr concierge was welcomed. We booked the junior suite for one night, a rustic room on the second floor that had been sympathetically modernised with underfloor heating and a new bathroom suite. A mini-bar of refreshments was included. We also had a view of Etna and surrounding mountains out of the window. The room was very clean and the shuttered windows kept the room really dark, great for a lie-in! We drank at the reasonably priced bar, taking these to the higher floors to enjoy the view from comfy sofas. The breakfast was an excellent selection including local produce such as ham and cheese (ricotta!), breads, pastries and cakes, juices and freshly made coffee. Highly recommended if you want a base to explore the surrounding area.

Stayed there for a week. Nice location next to restaurants and the view over the valley. The rooms are very clean and functional with renovated bathrooms. The staff is very kind and welcoming. The breakfast is generous and tasty. Perhaps one suggestion as we went through a serious heatwave is to make it easier to drink a lot of cold water or get AC.

Hotel Resistenza Petra was a very pleasant surprise, as was the town. Petralia Soprana is a gem of a small hilltop town, small enough to walk from end to end (cathedral to cathedral) easily, but with just enough restaurants and shops to be interesting, and featuring a tiny piazza out of a movie set. Given the size of the town, we were not expecting accommodations as elegant and lovely as this. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable (with a mini-fridge with free drinks). The location is perfect, a one- minute walk from the piazza and no more than five minutes from anything else. Parking is nearby and free. What’s more there are minimal narrow winding streets to negotiate: directions are very straightforward. Concetta, the manager, is wonderful. She speaks fluent English (and French) and is super nice and helpful. Her recommendation for dinner, Lu Carme, resulted in the best meal of our three weeks in Sicily and Sardinia. Breakfast was excellent. All in all, a great place!

This impeccably-kept hotel is located in a wonderful village. Plenty to see (and eat!) in town plus many places to explore in the region. Our room was huge, well-appointed and had scenic views. Parking was very close by at the viewpoint. The staff at this hotel made us feel very welcome and were very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing. We stayed two nights but could have stayed much longer - there is so much to see/do in the region if you have a car and like to walk.

What a lovely surprise to find that our hotel in the highest village in the Madonie mountains, the medieval town of Petralia Soprana, was every bit as charming as the town. The beautiful stone-walled hotel is in an old palazzo that has been renovated to a very high standard, with very comfortable and fresh rooms with simple wooden furnishings, extremely comfortable beds and postcard perfect views from the shuttered windows. Our room was very quiet, light and spacious and spotlessly clean. We really appreciated the good free wi-fi, the free drinks in the fridge, and the simple, plentiful breakfast. The staff are on hand 24-hours and are very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

The hotel has a great location near the center of town and just a few blocks away from some good restaurants. Our room was large and nicely appointed. The staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good and continental in style.

An excellent little hotel with exceptionally helpful staff. The rooms are large and exude Sicilian charm. The breakfast is good for such a small establishment. The overall value is excellent. There are 3 restaurants in this little town which all offer interesting menu choices, in their own way. The elderly gentlemen still congregate in the small village square, with a nearby view of the mountains that literally takes your breath away. The duomo at the north end is extraordinary in terms of the paintings contained therein. The narrow village streets offer endless opportunities for an evening stroll. The village itself is the gateway to the Madonie mountain range so it is a very useful stop for hill walkers. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone, always recognizing that it is not advertising itself as a 5 star, all whistles mega chain hotel.
