It is a little hike up the hill from the main areas of Taormina, but it is worth it - alone for the experience of swimming in the rooftop pool with views of Mt. Etna. Later we spent half of the night on our private balcony to enjoy the view on the red-glowing lava erupting from the volcano against the... More

This is a lovely secluded b & b, it must have been Ab Fab in the 90's when all the stars were staying here. It is lovely, but dated a little now, but don't let that put you off, I would stay here a thousand times over the overly crazy cruise stop off town of Taormina below. The apartment with... More

The owners of the place are pleasant and kind people - met us at a train station, drove us to the upper village when it was not a good weather, was trying to do everything to accommodate our needs and also helped with renting a car for a reasonable price - big thanks! The only minus to note was that... More

This is an amazing spot where you have a panoramic view from your rooms, the beautiful coastline and bay below and you can even see Mount Etna. There are sets of steps which get you down to the town so no need to drive anywhere and there is a funicular to the bay below if you don't want to walk... More

We found the room to be very clean, big and comfortable. We made good use of the kitchen and bought local produce and made dinner and ate on the terrace with the most amazing views of Mt. Etna and the sea. The pool area is very nice, you have to wear a cap but they are provided at a low... More

We had booked two nights at Villa Barone through booking.com. Because of problems with our flight we had to change plans - and even if it was too late to change the booking, it worked out fine thanks to the flexibility of Villa Barone. Carmen was always very friendly and helpful. The views are great and we really enjoyed the... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this excellent B&B. Its unfair to describe it as a room because what we had was a suite. On entering the there was a bedroom on the left followed by the bathroom and then you entered the main bedroom which led to the balcony. The view when you wake up is of Etna and... More

We recently stayed for 4 days at the Villa Barone in Taormina. The room was indeed luxurious (we stayed in the Orange Tree room) with a sumptuous 4 poster bed and lovely leather settee. Spacious and comfortable to the extreme. The private terrace was well provided for with sun loungers and a table and chairs for sun bathing and relaxing.... More

This is a charming B&B with stunning view on the Etna and the sea. Our room was big, clean and comfortable. The landlady, Carmen, is really friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was very good with home-backed cakes which we appreciated a lot! The only negative aspect, if you have a car, is that you have to through Taormina, which can... More
