La Foresta del Salto del Corvo is in a quiet and fairly remote location, about 8km from Giarre. It's ideal as a base for exploring the east and north east corner of Sicily by car.
The staff were really friendly staff and our room was comfortable, although hanging space for clothes was rather limited. There was a good choice of breakfast with use of homemade and local produce. You should try the evening menu at least once during your stay - the menu is set with whatever food is available on the day and the food was excellent.
There were only a few things that held this back from an excellent score: 1) You have to go right round the building and down some concrete steps to get to reception - it felt like entering through the back door. Parking at the top of the steps is limited and it's quite a way up, round and down to reception if you have to park at the front of the building; 2) There's very little sound insulation between the room and the corridor, meaning that downstairs toilet fans and TVs in other rooms can be heard very clearly; 3) The area around the swimming pool could do with a good tidy up - the photographs on the main website (http://www.laforestadelsaltodelcorvo.it) were obviously taken quite a few years ago and both the ground and the facilities have become a bit scruffy over time.
However, don't let a few negatives put you off. This is a really nice place to stay, and eat, if you're looking for somewhere away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
