We only stayed one night in Villa Rosa (green room) but we can recommend this B&B. It is located very near to the city centre of Zafferana and a family run business. We had a warm welcome. In the morning we got a full breakfast. The green room is very quiet and offroad. It was nice decorated with a fairly... More

We stayed in town and couldn't have been more impressed with the place and service, it was definitely the best place we stayed in in Sicily by far. Nicola and his parents were very friendly and helpful and served a wonderful breakfast. The rooms were immaculate and the whole garden area made us feel like we were in a little... More

This is the 4th time my husband and I stayed at Villa Rosa. The B&B has two parts, one in the centre of the town and one a short walk away on a vineyard. We stayed in both and loved both. The rooms are lovely and if you stay in the vineyard rooms there is a swimming pool where you... More

We just spent 5 nights in the vineyard. When Alberto, the owner, showed us the house, our first response was: we want to buy this house! And after 5 days we felt the same. Only two bedrooms are rented so you basically have a house for yourself. Superb location on the edge of the town of Zafferana with a big... More

Thoroughly recommend this place. Alberto is a splendid host, who is humorous and helpful. He was full of advice as to how to enjoy the region, but relaxed with it. The accommodation is charming and is perfectly located. Zafferana is a great place to stay. It has good bars and restaurants, and is a great base for exploring the locality.

“Upstairs room has a low ceiling bathroom. So tall people, watch out. But it comes with a beautiful sunny terrace.”
