This hotal is a beautiful place, but it is a bit more pricey than what earlier reviewers seem to indicate. I paid 150 Euro per night (in August 2013). Having said that, I think it is absolutely worth it! The main building of the hotel is located in an old "baglio", i.e. an old Sicilian farmhouse. This building is really... More

1) The hosts were lovely, even if one of the two doesn't really speak any English and will keep telling you "right" when she means "left" and vice versa. The host with good English gave us the most amazingly inaccurate directions to Taormina, we are not sure if she's ever really been. 2) Dinner was delicious, amazing cakes offered at... More

I stayed at Il Borgo - part of the Gole Alcantara resort with my fiancee for 5 days. We chose to stay here to save some money as it is peak season in Taormina during August and the hotel prices are very expensive. Staying at Il Borgo was great value for money - I think we paid less than £40... More

There are a couple of buildings spread over the vicinity that belong to the resort. We stayed in "Del Casa Rosa", the building where all guests have to check-in, have breakfast, and dine. The room was very affordable and clean. The bed had a nice, romantic touch. Bathroom was very basic and a bit of fungus on the rails of... More

Stayed in Il Borgo here with my wife for 5 nights in June. There are more Agriturismos belonging to this group, so you're well off checking or asking for a particular one in advance. See their site (not too user friendly) http://www.terralcantara.it/terralcantara/home/section.asp?iChannel=1 for details. We fully enjoyed our stay in a suite (room 15) in the main building (see photos).... More

We left Tropea and rode the ferry across Straits of Messina to Sicily and drove here in our rental car. From previous reviewers we made sure we got to the park information place during business hours. They gave us a map to the manor house Il Borgo which was built in the middle ages with modern conveniences. Beautiful setting on... More

My husband and I stayed at il borgo and found it to be a very positive experience. I was 23 weeks pregnant at the time and the staff were great. They were friendly and attentive at all times and no request was too much for them. Yes the hotel was a little bit tricky to find but the hotel sent... More

We stayed at Il Borgo, one of the for properties that make up Gole Alcantara Agriturismo. Although many have suggested it was difficult to find, if you actually read all the instructions, it's not difficult at all. The room was big, clean and had a wonderful view. The pool was clean and nice. The staff were great. Many have suggested... More

We stayed at Il Borgo for a week. Just what we wanted in terms of its rural location - lovely views whilst relaxing by the pool. The building is charming and the staff were friendly. The only real let down was the food - probably call it 'local rustic cooking' - you could eat it, but it was not particularly... More

It was a weekend trip for us and we booked this hotel in combination with tuifly flight to Sicilia. We knew that driving in Italy is not always pleasant but Sicilia topped this impression.
