Artful agriturismo


Med meets Mount Etna





The Exclusive Suite Elegante villas at Monaci delle Terre Nere in Sicily are shining lessons in why being eco-friendly doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on style: wooden-beamed ceilings, four-poster beds and sleek white walls prove the point. This 40-acre farm is surrounded by vineyards and lush green countryside, with the sea shimmering and Mount Etna rumbling in the distance. The rosy 19th-century villa is where you’ll find most of the hotel’s attractions (which include live jazz once a week), but these secluded hilltop suites offer a touch more privacy to proceedings – not to mention uplifting views of the Med from their lofty perch.

  • Extra beds are free for under-threes (it’s €35 a day for four- to nine-year-olds, and €50 euros a day for over-10s). The villa can sleep up to five guests.

  • Safe.
  • Air-conditioning in the bedrooms.
  • Fridge/minibar.

  • The villa is at the top of a hill within the estate’s farmland (though you’re more likely to smell fragrant citrus and jasmine on the breeze than anything agricultural).
  • There’s parking for two cars.
  • Accessible for wheelchair users.


  • The villa is on the island’s east coast, midway between Taormina and Catania.
  • The closest airport is Catania’s, a 40-minute drive from the property.
  • There are two train stations within a half-hour drive of Monaci delle Terre Nere: Catania Ognina and Taormina-Giardini. Services run to and from Messina; this is also where the ferry to the mainland sets sail.
  • Mount Etna is roughly 40 kilometres away (the drive will take about 40 minutes).
  • The villa is remote, so you’ll need a car – it’s best to pick one up at the airport rather than rely on pricey taxis. Transfers can be arranged through the hotel.
