Things to do

-Mount Etna. Zafferana Etnea is practically in the shadow of the legendary Mount Etna, and the natural park protecting this famed landmark could hardly be closer. It’s an active volcano, standing at over 3,320 metres. You can get the best views by taking an off-road vehicle tour, enjoying sumptuous views and seeing former lava rivers from past eruptions.

-Beaches. This portion of Sicily’s east coast tends to have dark pebble beaches that are well tended and offer various activities and services - and of course feature the one-of-a-king backdrop that is Mount Etna. Praiola is one of the closest, and framed by steep wooded hills.

-Catania. Taking a holiday in Zafferana Etnea you could make the short trip south to see this attractive city. The historic part is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its profusion of baroque architecture. Catania’s cathedral dates to Norman times, and no visit is complete without seeing the unique Elephant Fountain in Piazza del Duomo.

-Aci Castello. Even closer is this local coastal town, which has an imposing Norman castle dating to 1076. The structure is mostly intact stands high on a rocky promontory created by ancient lava flows, and looks out over the sea. It now houses a museum detailing the natural and cultural history of the town.

-Food and drink. On the east coast of Sicily you’ll get great seafood and fish thanks to the many fishing villages dotted along seafront. Inland villages are known for their mushrooms, cheeses and cured sausages. The gelato is also fantastic – Sicilians often have served with brioche.

Weather in Zafferana Etnea

Sicily gets a climate that is exactly what you would expect from the Mediterranean region. Precipitation is rather scarce all-year-round, occurring only late in the summer and during the short winter months. If you visit a Zafferana Etnea holiday home in summer then you’ll very likely enjoy warm conditions, with highs in the 30s in July and August, but also mercifully low humidity. For the remainder of the year, from October to April, daily highs drop gradually to the low-teens in January, before rising sharply again in Spring.

Travel to Zafferana Etnea

If you’re planning on flying to get to your holiday home in Zafferana Etnea, then the town sits approximately 40 kilometres north of Catania Fontanarossa Airport (CTA), and the trip by road shouldn’t take much more than half an hour. The airport is reachable from the UK with a few budget airlines, some of which offer only seasonal flights. There are half-hourly bus services from the airport to the centre of Catania, and from there you can catch an AST bus to Zafferana.

A spacious and well located villa with beautiful garden and a pool with a breathtaking view!

4 of 5
We had an excellent stay with our friends at this villa. There is a relaxed atmosphere and we spent most of the time moving between the good-sized kitchen-diner, the palatial terrace and the beautiful garden/pool area. The views of Etna and surrounding countryside are breathtaking and the villa is well located in the foothills of the mountain, making it slightly cooler than the coast. A short drive from nearby market towns, the national park and the coast. Perfect. The only slight downsides are the village itself (not much to see/do), the proximity to a fairly busy road and barking dogs at night! A gate to stop younger children going down to the pool area would be good too. However, overall, an awesome holiday for our families. Thank you.

Wonderful. Traditional Rustic Italian living at its best

5 of 5
we had an extremely wonderful stay. Had a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Lovely little touches like a welcome pack of fresh fruit & vegetables & cold bottle of beer which was enjoyed by my husband after the car journey from the airport. We love the area. If you want to explore this side of Sicily then this is a great base to do so, couldn't recommend highly enough. We would love to visit again in the future. Thank you to a lovely family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful house,
