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.

                                                                                                      When we first arrived we met Lillana who showed us around the castle. It was steeped with history and carachter and is absolutely beautiful and stunning. We were 9 adults and 3 small children and Lillana had no trouble accommodating us. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so enough space to move around. You can see views of mount etna and we saw the volcano erupt and you can see lava flowing down from the rooftop of the castle. On the other side you can see views of the Ionian Sea and have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. The pictures of the pool do not do justice to the actual size. The pool was much larger than we expected and probably 15-20metres with a diving board and a deep end. The pool was highlight for the children and they never wanted to leave. We had a really delightful stay and Liliana was very helpful throughout welcoming us with chocolate cake and a few other essentials like milk, toilet paper etc. She also helped with best tourist locations and sight seeing. I would definitely recommend this property it is so beautiful and the views were amazing.i had no problems booking and paying through owners direct and this was my first time. Would definitely book again. Thank you for a delightful stay. Junaid

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!
