About Monaci delle Terre Nere

Monaci delle Terre Nere sits near one of the most iconic locations in all of Italy, Sicily’s Mount Etna. Located on a historic 19th century estate, Terre Nere oozes classic charm and understated luxury. The 19 suites are scattered around the garden-covered grounds, housed in the renovated-but-still-historic stone buildings. Monaci delle Terre Nere is not only defined by history. Stylish furnishings are found in the rooms and gardens. Modern art is hung throughout the property, giving the estate a classy appeal that belays its uniqueness. With no televisions and telephones in the rooms, guests can completely immerse themselves in the almost-magical surroundings.

Monaci delle Terre Nere sits near one of the most iconic locations in all of Italy, Sicily’s Mount Etna. Located on a historic 19th century estate, Terre Nere oozes classic charm and understated luxury. The 19 suites are scattered around the garden-covered grounds, housed in the renovated-but-still-historic stone buildings. Monaci delle Terre Nere is not only defined by history. Stylish furnishings are found in the rooms and gardens. Modern art is hung throughout the property, giving the estate a classy appeal that belays its uniqueness. With no televisions and telephones in the rooms, guests can completely immerse themselves in the almost-magical surroundings. Despite its age, the renovations have made Monaci one of Italy’s most eco-friendly hotels. It relies partially on renewable energy and efficient fixtures. This fits with the fact that the estate has also been an organic farm for the past two decades. Olives, wine grapes, fruits and herbs are grown on the grounds. Everything that is harvested is first offered to guests. Monaci has 19 rooms, each of which fits into one of seven categories. Some of the suites are set in the main building, near the restaurant and lounge. Others are housed in peripheral buildings around the estate. These offer a higher level of privacy. Most suites have sitting areas and designer furniture in addition to their bedrooms. Many have private terraces with outdoor hot-tubs overlooking the most scenic sections of the grounds (with the mountain, vineyards or the ocean in the background). No matter which suite they choose, guests have access to complimentary organic breakfasts each morning. Lunch and dinner menus are based on whatever is available fresh from the onsite gardens. Local wines are paired with each dish. Guests can also sip drinks at the Lounge Bar or at the Poolside Bar, which is next to Monaci’s outdoor pool. The gardens, terraces and the solarium play an important role in the hotel's experience. On cooler evenings, the fireplace beckons. Children will enjoy the pool area or the purpose-made children’s playground. Guests also have access to extra experiences at Monaci. Outdoor yoga and Pilates classes are offered in the gardens during the summertime. Experts from the respected Etna Wine School offer wine tasting classes to guests. Nature trails wind through the property, or walking enthusiasts can explore the onsite farm operations. Bikes are for rent onsite as well. Though rooms do not have televisions, they do have wi-fi. Also, there is a summertime movie series held outdoors on the grounds. Finally, guests can learn to take the Sicilian flavors home with them by partaking in a cooking class. In short, Monaci delle Terre Nere provides a unique Sicilian vacation experience that offers something out of the ordinary while still giving guests access to all the quintessential flavors of this iconic island.
