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 !!

They are very warm and welcoming and serve you the best breakfast ever that you can enjoy looking at the Etna volcano. The B&B... More

The B&B had everything that you could ask. Starting from the welcome by Francesco, the owner , who greeted us on our arrival with glasses of his home made Sicilian red orange juice and chat about the surroundings and what to visit. The breakfast was excellent offering a big variety , including home made juices, cakes, jams, choices of fresh... More

Nice little villa surrounded by lemon tree and flower garden (even banana grows there!!!) the room was impeccable, with own little terrace. Short drive to Taormina. Francesco was more than helpful, also thanks to Maria Giovanna and son. To made our stay perfect. Great breakfast with terrace facing Etna!
