Accommodation in Mount Etna

Accommodation in Mount Etna

While there are chalets in Sicily, they tend towards a Mediterranean villa style rather than a cosy winter bunker. B&Bs halfway between the sea and the volcano are a popular option for those who feel the limited slopes may not be enough to keep them occupied all holiday.

Otherwise, there are a few renovated lodges on and around the lower slopes. Many double as wine producing estates, which makes a nice après ski feature.

For a more unusual ski resort option, Etna also offers a budget youth hostel a few kilometres away and a campsite nestled in the nearby pine forests. This, and many other types of accommodation in the area, offers an outdoor swimming pool.

Other popular options include villas with gardens. Novelty is Mount Etna’s key selling point as a ski destination, so what more unusual way to end the day than by winding up back at the villa, soaking up the last of the day’s rays with a glass of wine?
