Located on a gravel road dating back to the times when monks settled at the foot of Mount Etna in Sicily, the intimate nobiliary house ‘Monaci delle Terre Nere’ just opened at the beginning of June 2012. The small boutique hotel with just 6 beautifully appointed rooms combining traditional Sicilian architecture and contemporary art is a magic and serene place with wonderful scents and colours – sitting amidst an organic farm overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
