This is what happens when all the right raw materials are in place and you transform a seaside cum moutainside cum countryside historic country house into an entirely up to date stylish boutique accommodation.
You see, the Relais Monaci delle Terre Nere is located on the slopes of Mount Etna, the largest volcano in Europe, bordering the National Park at an altitude of 500 meters. This land belonged to the Order of monks of St. Anna, and the house itself dates back to 1800 and is considered a building of historical importance. Here the traditional Sicilian architecture blends with contemporary art.
The building was renovated applying the principles of ecological design, and with as much energy as possible used from renewable sources.
In short, the atmosphere is magical and serene, diverse and contrasting colors and smells accompany you along the path that offers a splendid view over the Ionian sea, on the one hand, and the volcano Etna, on the other. Relais Monaci delle Terre Nereis is also a farm adopting organic methods of cultivation for over two decades, an area of ​​16 hectares, with vineyards, olive groves, fruits and varieties of old Etna weeds. thus making It a proud producer of quality wines, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fruit.
It also ha a vegetable garden for the production of organic vegetables used for cooking.
The philsophy behind the Relais Monaci delle Terre Neresays it all really: 'Slowliving' - live  to the peaceful rhythm of life, taking back time away from the hustle of the city.

Un hotel espectacular Una pena, las avispas del desayuno
Desconexion total
Date of stay 14/04/2016
Un hotel único con todo lo necesario para desconectar: bellas vistas, comida agradable, sana, buenísima, naturaleza, aire puro, el Etna a un lado, el mar al otro, desayunos al aire libre con fruta, zumos, capuccino, habitaciones espaciosas, originales, muy bien decoradas y lo más importante, un equipo que te acompaña, atiende y sugiere todo lo que puedes hacer. Ah y el aceite de Guido, un imperdible! Slowplace para disfrutar de la vida en Sicilia. Altamente recomendable!
