Monaci Delle Terre Nere

Home > Hotels >  Monaci Delle Terre Nere

An intimate, eco-chic resort with a unique position in the foothills of Mount Etna, a dramatic setting that provides stunning views and a haven of tranquillity for those seeking to explore a unique side of Sicily. Expect a relaxed vibe, superb service and top-notch Sicilian dining.

Monaci Delle Terre Nere is a beautiful Sicilian retreat located on the slopes of Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, an area of outstanding natural beauty with fantastic Mediterranean views from every terrace. Only a 40-minute northerly drive from Catania airport yet a world away from the island’s tourist-heavy areas, the hotel sits in a historic estate of the 19th century that was the former residence of the monks of St Anne’s order.


Inside, traditional Sicilian architecture is skilfully combined with beautiful design elements, while the color palette reflects the hotel’s location. What’s more, this is one of only three eco-certified hotels in Sicily, which means it was built to the highest environmental standards. The hotel also implements green practices like preparing its own chemical-free cleaning products, serving local organic food, and offering a charging point for electric cars.


Monaci Delle Terre Nere offers a range of rooms in a range of categories, from Classic to Suite; some are located inside the historic estate, while others are scattered around the park. The interiors boast gorgeously preserved original details like exposed wooden beams and lava-stone walls, mixed with designer furnishings, art pieces, and modern accessories.
