Summary: one of the best ever locations in Italy, with perfect food and warmest hospitality ever.
Sicily has been on our wish list for years. Our choice to stay at La Cirasella, 1. 000 m up the Etna slopes, greatly added to the indeed great experience the island turned out to be.
The warm welcome already started during booking. Where Laura went out of her way to provide near instant help with all our questions.
When arriving at 9 pm we were invited to the main dining table to find a wide variety of delicious dishes set out for our first of many great diners.
Each morning we and the other guests were amazed at the assortment of delicious, often home cooked and healthy breakfast dishes. Indeed the nicest start of yet another day of walking the Etna slopes, visiting historic towns and strolling on the beaches. And of course enjoying Italian ice cream: -) Tip: try pistachio ice, you'll want to take a big box home with you..
La Cirasella is located in the Etna national park and a great start, some right out of the gate, for walks on the lava flows and near moonlike landscapes. From our quiet and relaxing apartment the cities of Taormina, Giarre, Catania and many idyllic small mountain towns were within easy reach.
A nice bonus to all this are the warm and energetic patrons Laura and Pippo. With Laura we had nice talks over (did I say delicious already?) diner and breakfast. To us a great touch is having our meals at one big table with the other guests. We learned about Malta from our neighbours and had chats about all kinds of small and big topics.
We can advice all readers looking for a place to stay in beautiful Sicily to at least check out La Cirasella as an option. You will not regret it one minute!
