We spent two nights here. Rooms are very spacious and ours included a large sized bathroom and terrace overlooking the beautiful village of zafferana etnea. The only thing which could improve might be a bigger selection at breakfast even if this comes st an extra price. Keep up the good work

My wife and I spent two nights at Villa Hirschen in Zafferana Etnea - great location - 10 to 15 minute walk to the center of Zafferana, so didn't need to use the car - always a blessing for me when attempting to drive in Italy.
