My new wife and I had an intimate wedding ceremony at MDTN. The service from the staff for the whole stay was impeccable and The attention to detail by the director was greatly appreciated. Great food and wine was served with amazing ingredients from their farm and Sicily. It was perfect.

My husband and I booked Monaci delle Terre at the last minute, during our week-long trip in Sicily, and I immediately wished we were staying there for more than one night. The room was spectacular--huge, light-filled, with beautiful wood-beamed ceilings and skylights, and a truly luxe bathroom with a stand-alone tub. Outside, there were terraced orchards, olive trees, gardens, and...

We have visited this place once again and we can say that the quality is top, and even improving, thanks to the perfectionism of its owner. Style, good taste, hospitality, excellent food and wine. This is a piece of (stylish) heaven. We will definitely come back. Well done!

We stayed 2 days in this wonderful small boutique hotel set in its own estate, where all manner of produce is grown. The ambiance is one of tranquility and purity.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In 2007, by chance, I stumbled upon this place, fell in love with it and decided to devote my life to its resurrection.To bring this place, previously chosen by the monks of Saint Anna’s order for his special energy and extraordinary charm, back to life. It has become the second great project of my life. The estate Monaci delle Terre Nere is situated along the slopes of Mount Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe on the border of the Etna National Park at 500mt above sea level. My wish has been to preserve the historic identity and local traditions, more than a Boutique Hotel it is a home which I hope retains its intimacy. The house which dates from 1800 is listed as one of historical importance. It is now a place where traditional Sicilian Architecture is combined with contemporary art and living. ... more   less
