Our B&B is a traditional one, not entrepreneurial, it is our family home, a part of which is reserved for guests. You will therefore feel the welcoming atmosphere of a lived-in home, we will meet during the day, and we can exchange a few words over breakfast..

Our home transmits a special energy to those who stay there, many guests tell us this and preserve a memory of true well-being.

Located at the entrance of Viagrande, it is in a strategic position to move quickly towards the main tourist destinations of the area, from Etna to the Ionian coast, to Taormina, as well as to reach the CT-PA motorway.

A stone's throw from the delightful village of Viscalori, it is a characteristic Sicilian dwelling from the late 19th century, recently renovated in full respect of traditional architecture, with large rooms with vaulted ceilings and thick walls of lava stone.

The country-style furnishings with a touch of ethnic elements give a feeling of warmth and familiarity in all environments, and Susanna, the landlady, will do the rest to make guests feel at home.

The 3 rooms available to guests are located on the first floor of the house, have independent access and overlook a large central living room with a terrace. The living room is equipped with a kitchenette with everything needed for the preparation of a quick meal: induction hob, microwave oven, toaster, fridge.

All rooms have simple and elegant furnishings, are air-conditioned and comfortable, equipped with TV and WiFi, ideal for a pleasant stay.

The garden is a highlight of the B&B: designed to host butterflies and birds, it is an oasis of peace even for guests who can enjoy its romantic atmosphere during breakfast or in their free time in the afternoon.

Cultivated with organic methods without the use of poisons, it hosts flower borders from spring to autumn while in winter it is colored with the fruits of oranges and mandarins, a testimony to the ancient citrus grove of which it was once a part.

The B&B stands out for its attention to the environment and sustainable development and belongs to the Ecobnb network: equipped with photovoltaic panels, it is committed to limiting waste of energy, gas and water, detergents and other polluting products; guests are offered natural and organic products.

Susanna made the two of us very welcome. She creates a lovely calm and homely atmosphere. Our room (ensuite) was spacious. It led directly on to the patio and Susanna's lovely garden where we enjoyed her delicious home made breakfasts - bread, cake, preserves and plentiful supplies of coffee. We also appreciate the kitchenette which made it possible to eat in several nights. Susanna gave us excellent advice about places to visit including Catania, Taormina, and Mount Etna. She made it possible for us to spend a delightful day at a nearby outdoor pool. It helped to have a car and there is easy parking outside the house. Overall, we would strongly recommend Velardi.

The Velardi B&B is a FANTASTIC! place to stay. Our host, Susanna, was very communicative and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and air-conditioned (a necessity given that we were then during the hottest week of the summer). The bathroom was enormous and had a lovely shower that was lit from above with a skylight. Breakfast in Susanna's garden, a tucked away oasis, was magical: fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, juice, coffee, cookies, and homemade sweet breads. The B&B is located just a 5-minute walk from the central town square, convenient to restaurants and the workshop I was attending. Susanna helped to arrange for us: a guided tour of Etna, massages for my wife, a beach trip, and a tour of the Greek Theatre at Taormina--she couldn't have been more informative or helpful. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat--it gets my strongest recommendation.

Eccellente struttura, eccellente accoglienza, eccellente camere e eccellente pulizia. Stanze super riscaldate in un ambiente pulitissimo. La colazione di qualità, con prodotti realizzati dalla proprietaria, è un valore aggiunto. Detto ciò, io consiglio vivamente questo luogo, soprattutto considerando il giusto prezzo per l'offerta avuta. Ho avuto un bellissimo soggiorno.

Cura e attenzioni cadono subito a l'occhio e in un attimo sei acclimatato in un ambiente piacevolmente confortevole e in breve familiare. L'accoglienza e la disponibilità di Susanna poi completano il tutto restituendo una permanenza difficile da lasciare e impossibile da dimenticare.

Soggiornare da Susanna è paragonabile all'essere accolti in un caloroso e accogliente abbraccio. Sin dal primo ingresso, saltano all'occhio la cura nei dettagli e i colori caldi che sono lo specchio di tutta la dolcezza e la disponibilità della proprietaria. La colazione, preparata con la stessa attenzione e la stessa tenerezza, permette di cominciare la giornata pieni di energia e della voglia di gustare le bellezze dei paesi etnei. Consiglio vivamente la scelta di questa struttura che, nonostante la breve permanenza, mi sento di chiamare casa, un luogo dove torneremo sicuramente.

Il B&b è curato ed accogliente, meraviglioso il giardino in cui Susanna, la gentile proprietaria, prepara una colazione deliziosa ed abbondante con buonissimi prodotti locali, frutta fresca e torte fatte in casa; abbiamo ricevuto anche tanti preziosi consigli per le nostre escursioni. Un luogo pieno di energia positiva!

Susanna è un host premurosa, accogliente e che sa come coccolare i suoi ospiti. La nostra stanza era ben arredata, pulitissima e con quei dettagli che fanno la differenza come il sapone fatto a mano, i fiori freschi e gli olii essenziali. Colazioni fantastiche nel giardino che è a dir poco un angolo di paradiso. Torneremo presto!

Ottima struttura che risponde pienamente alle aspettative di chi cerca un b&b posto in posizione strategica per godere il fresco rispetto alla piana catanese (il paese è alle falde dell'Etna), ed essere abbastanza vicino e ben collegato a Catania e alle spiagge della zona. Lo consiglio.

Io e il mio compagno abbiamo trascorso al B&B Velardi 4 notti per motivi di lavoro. Ci siamo trovati benissimo e quasi non volevamo andare via. La struttura è bella e pulita e Susanna è una padrona di casa gentile e disponibile. La camera dove abbiamo pernottato. La stanza delle Spezie, è abbastanza grande e ben arredata, e ha un bell'affaccio su un giardinetto interno. La notte la camera è silenziosa e si può riposare tranquillamente. Di giorno è inoltre possibile fare la colazione nel giardinetto, così come abbiamo fatto noi grazie a Susanna. La connessione internet funziona molto bene ed è possibile lavorare tranquillamente con il proprio pc dalla camera. Il B&B è posizionato vicino al centro, a due passi da supermercato e farmacie ed è un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare l'Etna e i suoi dintorni. A impreziosire la struttura è la gentilezza e la disponibilità di Susanna, una vera maestra dell'arte dell'accoglienza. Siamo stati bene, consigliatissimo!

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!
