Velardi B&B

Bed & Breakfast
Via Luigi Scuderi, 2 - Viagrande (CT) - Area: city center
Guests in this venue liked:
  • cheap
  • charming property
  • abundant breakfast
The B&B is located on the outskirts of Viagrande, a town near Etna rich in history and tradition, and once the summer residence of Catania's nobility. The location is ideal for those who want to be within walking distance of many interesting destinations, from the historic centre of Catania to the riviera of the Cyclops, to the most suggestive corners of the highest volcano in Europe.

The house is located just 5 minutes' walk from both Viagrande's mother church, and the beautiful village of Viscalori. It is a characteristic Sicilian residence of late 1800s, recently restored respecting architectural traditions, with large rooms boasting vaulted ceilings and thick walls of volcanic rock. The country-style décor, with its touch of ethnic elements, gives a feeling of warmth and cosiness in all environments, while Susanna, the landlady, will do everything else to make guests feel at home.
To start the day, guests can enjoy a rich and authentic breakfast of seasonal, organic products. Home-made bread baked in traditional stone ovens; jams and honey; organic seasonal fruits from the orchards around Mount Etna; cakes made with the flour from ancient varieties of cereals, and traditional pastries, freshly squeezed Sicilian oranges, all served in a cosy living room in winter, or in the shade of citrus fruit trees in the garden during the warmer months.

Sono stata benissimo! La casa è molto accogliente, calda, pulita e curata in ogni particolare. Colazione super buona con prodotti bio e a km zero. Gentilezza e disponibilità da parte della padrona di casa mi hanno fatto sentire ancora meglio e i suoi consigli mi sono stati molto utili per le mie escursioni sull’Etna. Il rapporto qualità/prezzo è eccezionale!

Luogo Meraviglioso! Susanna ci ha accolti in modo veramente cordiale nel suo Bed and Breakfast, che è bellissimo, molto raffinato e situato in una splendida posizione per visitare l'Etna, Catania Acireale e tantissime altre meravigliose località. Le camere sono molto ampie, eleganti e pulitissime! Siamo stati anche coccolati con una deliziosa colazione che ci è stata servita nel suo splendido giardino. Grazie ancora di cuore!

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
