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.

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.

Beautiful Castle Stay

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful castle that had amazing views of both the sea and Mount Etna, especially from the turrets and terrace! The castle was full of history and the huge swimming pool was absolutely amazing - it even had a diving board and basketball hoop which was loads of fun for everyone and there were plenty of sun loungers for all of us to use. Lillana was a great host and made us feel very welcome - even baking us a cake on the day of our arrival! I would definitely recommend staying at the castle!

Stunning, stunning stunning.....

Words cannot do Ernesto's farmhouse justice, idyllic, peaceful, charming. If you are going to this part of the island I doubt you will find a better place to stay. Ernesto is the perfect host, he left us his wine, homemade jams, bread and salami and gave us all the information needed to explore the area. I wish we were still there!
