I attended a conference in Sicily in late September/October and stayed at this impeccable villa for 4nights. The owner, Professor Francesco came to pick up us at the bus stop and drove us again when leaving. He is always very helpful and at your service, even at late hours at night. Delicious breakfast including mouth-watering home made products. Wonderful views... More

Beautiful villa, walking distance to the beach and only a few minutes drive to Taormina. We only stayed one night for our 40th Anniversary but I could have stayed a week. One of the best B&B we experienced in Sicily. The owners Franco and his sons were very friendly, loved the gardens and all the organic fruit trees on the... More

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. The breakfast is great and served outside. There is a home-made limonchello complimentary offered to the guests of the villa. The rooms are huge, very... More

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

Francesco and his son were super friendly and had very helpful suggestions for what to do during our stay. The breakfast was great with a huge selection. 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 !!
