Monaci Delle Terre Nere has been built with the features of a unique country boutique hotel with design elements. It has 20 rooms, some in the main building – a noble dwelling of the 19th century – and others scattered around our organic farm.
It is surrounded by a Sicilian estate at the slopes of Mt. Etna, the biggest active volcano of Europe. It has the soul of a discreet and unpretentious hideaway, far from the hurly burly of urban life, in a place of special energy.
The noble dwelling dates back to 19th century and is listed among historic buildings. The scattered Suites are independent buildings within the estate, where you can enjoy Monaci’s silence and true identity. Here, the traditional Sicilian architecture is combined with contemporary art. In the process of restoring the buildings, the principles of Bio-architecture have been applied and part of the energy supply comes from renewable resources.

Our estate covers an area of more than 40 hectares. On one side the sea glistening in the sun, on the other side Mount Etna slumbers.
The air is magic and serene, carrying the scent of citrus and jasmine on the breeze. From the beginning of the day, the land and sun create a full palate of colors, which become more varied as the day stretches through to dusk.
