We stayed for 6 nights at Antico Borgo in Calatabiano. The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff was friendly and service minded. However, it was very noisy due to the A18 motorway being only 200 meters away. Don't believe that the lovely scenery in photos from this place truely represents the environment, the traffic noise is quite intrusive!... More

This is clearly one of the best places to go in the area between Catania and Taormina. The structure is beautiful, is built in a old villa. God value for money, high quality, good position and a fantastic restaurant (see below for details). Every room is different, very elegant and with typical furniture "Sicilian Style". The staff is incredibly friendly... More

Many other reviewers have already provided in depth reviews, so I will just touch upon a few. First, assuming you have a car, this is a great place to stay north of Catania (don't stay there…) which is convenient to Taormina, Etna, and other sights and towns in the area. There is a train station across the road, but I... More

Everything about this property is totally wonderful from the welcome from Staff to the accommodation itself and the restaurant is just fantastic. The room was delightful, like staying in a castle but with all the mod cons. We stayed 2 nights and the first night went to the restaurant not knowing what to expect and were totally blown away.

This is by far the best place to stay in and around Giardini Naxos and Taormina. Everything was perfect - from service to food to views (of Etna) and beautiful, light, airy, comfortable rooms. The gardens are beautiful as is the restaurant. Our stay was truly special and we loved every minute of it. A perfect place to relax and... More

We were on a group tour in Sicily and did not stay here this time - just had dinner. Chef Russo and his staff provide an extensive number of courses of tasty Sicilian specialties which would each hold its own against 5-star restaurants. The villa provides a restful panorama of the area and the delicious appetizers served on the porch... More

Spent two nights here in June 2012. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Francesca and her mother were delightful and their hospitality really enhanced our stay. We had lots of advice about the local area/where to eat etc. Unfortunately the restaurant is no longer open for guests and only seems to... More

Delightful accomodations among orchard trees and vegetation. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Guizy (mother) and Francesca (daughter who speaks English fluently) were completely helpful with all requests, including local directions and suggestions, printing airline boarding passes, dinner reservations, etc. Note: Guizy looks like Francesca's older sister! Dinner at their restaurant by Chef Alessandro Russo and waiter Alessandro (same name,... More

This restaurant was exactly what we had wanted to find in Sicily. Chef Alessandro Russo covered our table with wonderful plates of typical local food, all cooked to perfection. As regular diners and previously disappointed at our hotel, we were very impressed. If this chef starts a cookery school, I'll be the first guest!!! They are not open for dinner... More

What a perfect introduction to Sicilian hospitality and lifestyle! This lovely place is on a private hilltop in the middle of their own orange and lemon orchards. We were there in spring and the combined scents of all the flowers was incredible. The rooms are tucked around the back of the building and are very quiet, dark and private. We... More
