When every detail makes you happy.

Sometimes, it is a brief moment that stays with us forever. A smile, while passing by an Asian market, the smell of the wind in the tropics, or the voice of a storyteller in Morocco. Traveling is about collecting memories that stay with you forever. This is why we organize your holiday as if we were coming along with you.

Our services are shaped by our values.

Enriching

Whether it is chauffeur service, a stay in an exclusive airport lounge or a private tour that is not mentioned in any travel guide, we are personally committed to designing every desired detail of your journey.

Reliable

Whether you want to spontaneously rebook your room or change your flight date, we always find the right solution. We are there for you, not only before, but during your holiday as well. Why? Because you deserve an all-around enjoyable trip.

Every journey starts in your head.

Whether it is a night under the stars in the desert, a romantic candle-light dinner or a horse-back ride into the sunset; through customized planning, our competent consultants make sure that you can thoroughly enjoy your valuable vacation time. That way, you can light-heartedly do what is most vital: collect memories that will stay with you forever.

It fills me with joy when someone not just builds a hotel, but really has a knack for it, even a signature, an eye for it. When someone has intuition for the fact that an excellent establishment is by no means just accommodation, but must stand for an attitude to life. Because the perfect hotel feels good: consciously, subconsciously, through all senses.

The carefully renovated country estate Monaci delle Terre Nere in Sicily, about halfway between Taormina and Catania at the foot of Mount Etna, is exemplary in this respect: a manor house in traditional Sicilian architecture, plus a few outbuildings with a more rugged appearance. Some of the centuries-old room walls made of natural stone are not plastered, almost black in contrast to the snow-white bed linen, the furniture is a combination of old and new, there are delicate touches of contemporary design everywhere. The mixture is perfect, the arrangement ideal. What has emerged within eight years here has become a genuine ‘high-end feel-good hotel’ for me.

From the pavilion on the meadow you can see the sea, a pool has been inserted into the large terrace garden as if it had always been there. In the spirit of the Slow Food movement, the in-house restaurant ‘Locanda Nerello’ serves food from the 24 hectares of estate-owned land or from local suppliers based in the vicinity. The wine served is excellent, made from grapes that are almost exclusively found here on Etna – Nerello Mascalese is one of those grapes, Carricante another. The feel-good experience thus turns into a package of indulgence.

If you prefer to reside away from the main house, a suite in the separate cottage is the ideal choice. How will you be leaving? With a feeling of happiness. With joy that someone here has an eye, a knack and a signature.
