A junior suite at an imposing golf and spa resort at the foot of Mount Etna - includes breakfast or half board, spa access, and an optional four-course dinner with wine tasting

With its location on the slopes of Sicily's looming Mount Etna, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its dramatic volcanic eruptions, you can expect a somewhat more serene experience with a stay at Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa. Here, instead of menacing volcanic rumblings, you'll be treated to the clipped sound of golfers teeing off on an 18-hole course, the lazy splash of a diver into the cooling waters of the hotel pool or a sweet sigh of relaxation as you treat yourself to an indulgent lava massage in the spa.

The hotel itself is designed to soothe, being a pleasing modern interpretation of classic Sicilian style that sits comfortably with the natural beauty of the rolling hills all around. Low-rise, villa-style buildings of burnt orange and ochre are topped with terracotta-tiled roofs. Interiors are cool, calm and seamlessly connected with designer accessories and fittings throughout. 'Fresh, Italian and Simple' are the bywords at the hotel restaurant, in keeping with the ethos of the JLive Resort Collection of which the hotel is part. It all makes for a deliciously laid-back and authentic Sicilian experience.
