  • Maria and her family were very kind and helpfull. Etna house of Stone is a very romantic place to stay in a beautiful surrounding near the Etna. We were also glad to meet Maria's son, Alfio, who was extremely nice and kind. He told us a lot about the family history and the property, which was very interesting and surprising ! We had a very pleasant stay and can strongly recommend this place ! Hope to be back in future !

  • Maison de famille dans le village de Linguaglossa ( très proche pour la visite de l'Etna). Nous avons vraiment aimé nos 4 jours dans le cottage de Famille car d'une part il est très bien situé dans le village ; c 'est à dire proche de tout : gare, magasin, bar, restaurant du village ; et en même temps très au calme , aucun bruits de voiture . La maison est très confortable ; avec Grande salle de bain et joli chambre. Nous avions du café dans le placard et des légumes frais du jardin pour les premiers jours , donc très sympa de la part de Maria et de son Mari , ( qui vivent dans la maison d'à coté) . tout était vraiment bien , la maison est parfaitement équipée, linge, serviettes dans chaque salle de bain, cuisine pratique pour cuisiner ; Cet endroit est à recommander vivement si vous passez dans la région de L'Etna. La lumière de la Sicile est magique.

  • Belle petite maison, cosy et bien équipée. La terrasse est également très agréable pour les repas. Il y fait très calme, la maison est située dans un beau jardin très bien entretenu et les commerces de proximité nous ont permis d'être autonome.

  • Es ist praktisch genauso, wie im Text der Insertion versprochen, nur schöner. Eine Bleibe, wie man es sich zu Hause wünschte. Grosszügig und geschmackvoll eingerichtete Räume, hervorragende Betten und der Höhepunkt: eine Terrasse mit Blick auf Olivenhain, Kirsch-Maulbeerbäume. Zum richtigen Zeitpunkt gereist, kann man sich die Müder vollstopfen und die Kleider versauen. Begrenzt wird die Sicht nur durch die Hügel der Region und durch zwei Kirchtürme, die um die Wette bimmeln - dank der Entfernung aber äusserst diskret. Wir hatten das Gefühl auf einem Landgut zu verweilen, einzig die Dienerschaft fehlte - dafür liegt die nächste Bar wenige Gehminuten entfernt. Die äusserst gastfreundlichen Besitzer dieses Paradieses wohnen um die Eck, am andern Ende des gepflegten Blumengartens. Das Haus war früher der Landsitz eines Bischofs, einem Ahnen der Familie. Wir durften die Räumlichkeiten besichtigen und die standesgemässe Ausstattung bewundern. Abgeschlossen wurde der Besuch mit einem ebenfalls standesgemässen Limoncello. Wir hatten eine herrliche Zeit und können das Haus und die Gastgeber wärmstens empfehlen.

  • We had a wonderful week in the Mt Etna Stonehouse. The house was spacious, newly renovated, very clean and provided everything we needed for self catering, but the best was the terrace overlooking the wonderful garden area + the view of Mt Etna from my bedroom window.
    Linguaglossa is not the most attractive town but for anyone wanting to locate themselves to visit Mt Etna & explore the wonderful east coast area of Sicily I would highly recommend Mt Etna Stonehouse.
    Maria was a great host, very (website hidden) Thank you Maria for the delicious goodies you left out for us on our arrival.

  • Two short but very soothing days at the confortable, aired, open and sunny stone house. The terrace overlooks the family’s old garden, two old cheerful churches, and the blue sky surrounded by the Etna and his soft neighboring hills. A place to peak at the nearby Ionian Sea, the chaos of beautiful Taormina and other smaller towns, Linguaglossa is quiet but not asleep, far but not remote. Maria quietly awaited us with bread, butter, fruit, jams, wine, cold water and cookies, all fresh and tasty, of course all homemade or grown nearby. Maria and her husband, her friendly daughter and eloquent son (both fluent in English) shared with us their love for the place and were all dedicated hosts. We do plan to return to Linguaglossa and to Maria’s home for a deeper taste of the region, the mythical Etna, a play at the Teatro Greco, wading the Alcantara gorge, the friendly people atop Castelmola, and simply enjoy some of the good life that the Sicilians treasure and share.

  • A beautiful setting with a friendly and helpful host who gave us great recommendations. If you want a few days in "real" Sicily, away from the tourist traps but near lots of great locations this is for you. The house is in the middle of Linguaglossa, the last town on route to Etna (Nord). It looks into a large hidden garden full of fruit trees. We enjoyed the cherries. The house is an old farm workers house, tastefully restored and well equipped. The host even provided fresh bread, local cheese biscuits on arrival, with fresh lemons from their grove and some lovely wine the next morning! Thanks again. Ciaran

  • If you are looking for sun, sea, volcano and country side action in a beautiful small village with exquisite views, then this is the house for you. Its one of the most peaceful places I have stayed in , surrounded by cherry trees and frames by hills and Mount Etna.

    Maria's son was the best host you can expect, bringing fresh fruit and home made jams for breakfast.

    I will love to come back here to stay for longer. Thank you for a splendid holiday.

    Serene and Reuben.
