The owner Franchesco and his son Gabriel bought this villa 10 years ago and turned it into a great garden inset villa designed for the guests. It sits in the lemon garden, beautiful and relaxing.

ETNA; a room that was cozy and comfy and pretty large, very bright. And the host, Francesco, wonderful, fully dedicated to making your stay at his b&b... More

This B&B is a bit different from any other I've stayed at. The owners are very friendly and genuinely seem to enjoy running their B&B and hosting their guests. I have a couple of minor quibbles with the establishment, but nothing that would stop me from recommending it as the positives far outweigh any negatives. I personally found the breakfast... More

The room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. Be aware that walking distance to downtown restaurants is a good 2 km. But there are also a few restaurant less than... More

Every once in a while, you stumble upon a special, magical place, and this B&B is one of those. The owner, Francesco, is enough of a reason to stay here. Here's how I would describe Francesco - put the leaders of two warring countries in a room together with Francesco. Within 10 minutes, he'll have them drinking homeade limoncello and... More

Located in a beautiful estate, among flowers and fruit trees, evereything neat and clean, bearing the personal touch of the hotel owners, sheets with embroidery, handmade marmelade, sweets and fruit liqueur -sorry, no refrigerator in the rooms-. Lovely !!
