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

A gold star for 'the Red and the Black'!

4 of 5
Enza is a warm, friendly and generous hostess, who could not have been more helpful and delightful! She also speaks English very well, which is a great help to those of us whose Italian is limited to a few words, mainly to do with food! A 'welcome breakfast' on our first day and a 'farewell breakfast' on our last were unexpected bonuses, but typical of the hospitality shown, which included a well stocked fridge, fresh fruit and wine! The apartment is very spacious with a big comfortable lounge/dining room, two large double bedrooms, 2 shower rooms, a well stocked kitchen and two outside sitting areas. The name 'The Red and the Black 'reflects the proximity of Mt Etna and is carried through the décor of the apartment. Everything was spotlessly clean and sheets, towels etc. were changed mid way through our stay. The secure, underground garage meant that parking was never an issue and the proximity of all of the amenities in Zafferana mean that there is no need for the car once you return from longer excursions to Taormina, Mt Etna, Catania, Syracuse etc. Enza knows her home area well and is happy to recommend places to eat and visit which are off the main tourist routes. Being on the main road means that you are close to the main square where there are lively bars and eateries well into the evening. A slight downside is that some of the late-night revellers can be a bit noisy as they pass by! Sadly Mt Etna is not visible from the terrace, but its presence can be felt throughout Zafferana. In all, our stay was delightful and memorable, made all the better by the kindness and thoughtfulness of our delightful hostess, Enza and all of the other warm and friendly Sicilians we encountered. Many thanks for having us to stay with you.
