“Friendly & near to Etna trips”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

“Fantastic accommodation ,wonderful hosts - we will come again. Brilliant thank you”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2014

Absolutely wonderful accommodation with lovely people running it . Thanks goodness their English was better than our Italian. Ninnie and Christina are fantastic hosts . The views from the roof terrace are spectacular - helped by the fact that Etna was erupting . The refurbished winery is a site to see. 10 years of dedicated hard work has paid off . In fact the everyone we came into contact with was vert welcoming - try the local wine from the green grocer down the road 3Euro for a very drinkable litre and a half of red wine . And fruit and veg so fresh and cheap. Would more than recommend this accommodation and location to anyone thinking of going to Sicily. Only caution is driving in Sicily is not for the faint hearted...... You need to become a very aggressive driver who thinks they have right of way all the time . If you don't you will spend your holiday sat at a junction as there is obviously no word for 'give way' in Sicilian .

“19th century winery at the foot of the vulcano”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2014

We've had five wonderful days at Tocco e il Palmento Silvestri. De town of Pedara is a pleasant surprise in the endless (ugly) suburbs which surround the south slope of mount Etna. Hostess and host Cristina and Ninni are most friendly. The accomodations are situated in a former winery near the centre of the town. There is appartment on the groundflour, which is the original 19th century state. We stayed at a modern appartment on the top flour. As guests you can freely visit the old winepress, the garden and the roof terrace, from which we had a bewitching view on the glowing vulcano at night.
