Half-board well worth the home cooking. We had a big room in a converted barn. Great view of the sea and Mt. Etna from the roof terrace, weather permitting. All in all, friendly, pleasant accommodations.

As the owner very well said, this place " is not for everyone", cause if you do not appreciate kept tradition, quality in services while still keeping the "old times" aroma of the place and respect for the history of a beautiful property, this place is maybe not what you're looking for. This experience was for us the real proove...

We chose La Rocca della Rosa for a 2 day visit to the Etna region. The service was very friendly and the food was great. The farmhouse is charming with a lot of history. Highly recommended if looking for an agriturismo close to Mount Etna.

The reviews we read gave Maria and Franz a great rating for their agroturismo, and we definitely weren't disappointed. From their warm welcome to the home cooked meals by Maria's mother, my wife and I felt right at home. Our room was more than adequate with stone walls and wooden ceiling and beams, and windows with a southern face. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a week in Sicily and it is easily our favourite place. It is a beautiful home and the rooms are lovely - comfortable beds and really good showers. The setting is stunning with views out over towards Etna, brooding and covered in snow. They are growing lots of their own...

We had a wonderful time at this rustic agriturismo, and enjoyed staying in the wine press room--well-described elsewhere--which had a lovely view of Mt. Etna. The room and bathroom were more than adequate, but the unique delights of La Rocca della Rosa lie in the warm, lovely welcome from Maria and Franz, the superb meals prepared by Maria's mother and...
