the only very slight inconvenience - to me, as I am a person who does not stand heat very well , especially in summer, ha, ha, but then who does?! - was the fact that there was no AC in the hallway on the second floor (where the rooms are located) so if you turned on the AC in your... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early June 2015, a couple plus baby, and stayed in the Elena Room on the end of the upstairs row. The house is located up on the hillside but you can access the town below surprisingly easily on foot by a series of steps cutting across the winding lane. Takes less than 10 mins... More

We were lucky to start our trip here and we liked it so much that we returned for our last night. There are 3 rooms --- all sharing a large balcony with great views -- attached pictures. Elena, the owner is a delightful elderly lady that does do her best to communicate with you -- do not expect much in... More

Rooms were beautiful and quiet. The B&B was perched on a curve on Via Leonardo da Vinci, 55, furnished with family heirlooms and tended by a gracious widow, Alena. It was ideal for us, located between the town of Taormina and Castelmola. We hiked to Ristorante al Saraceno di Alfio Puglia, Via Madonna Rocca, 16/18, Castemola, for two splendid dinners.... More

This was my second stay at Villa Sara, and I'll be going back this year. I always finish my Sicily-trips in Taormina, because I like the atmosphere in the town and I like having dinner in Castelmola, a small town uphill. But about the hotel: be careful, it is quite a long and steep walk from the city center. So... More

We stayed here during 2010 and our experience was great. The views were spectacular and the host was extremely hospitable and caring. Despite the fact that she doesn't speak too much English, we had no trouble in communicating our needs and requirements with her and she takes very good care of her guests. The rooms are spacious and homely with... More

If you get the chance, stay here! Villa Sara is located within a grand home, perched high in the hills of Taormina overlooking Mount Etna and the Mediterranean sea. The rooms are very spacious and each has a private balcony. There are many steps from the entrance to the rooms (4 flights?), so caution to those have any limitations. There... More

villa sara is a really special place. it is a beautiful privet house, who belongs to Mrs Elena, an extremely nice old lady who runs the place. the B&b has only 3 big rooms, with beautiful old furniture and a big balcony with great view of Taormina and beach. Mrs Elena makes a great personal breakfast to every guest by... More
