We spent 5 nights in October 2012 at this lovely B&B and we truly enjoyed it. The location was excellent for us: right on the beach, close to some good eateries, good bus connection up to Taormina city, if one wants to have a stroll through some shopping streets. In fact, during our stay we visited Taormina city once, enjoyed it, but in the evening were oh sooo glad to come back to quiet and relaxing Mazzeo :o) We very much liked the authentic feel of the B&B neighborhood, with elderly locals sitting outside of their houses in the evening, veggi-sellers bringing their goods to narrow streets in the morning, etc.
The beach itself is somewhat stony (not the soft sandy beach like those around Syracuse), but it’s still nice and not crowded, especially at the end of the season, and the water quality is excellent. The location of Taormina in general is excellent for many short half-day or one-day trips, be it to Etna, to the Waterfalls, etc.
The B&B apartment that we stayed in included everything that we needed, was very clean, comfortable and decorated with much love. And, of course, not to forget very friendly and helpful hosts Fufu and Pinuccio, who always have great tips for sightseeing trips, dinner locations and are just lovely people to chat with. All in all, we enjoyed our stay in B&B Da Concettina Very much and will be definitely coming again!

we have been extremely pleased in reading your detailed review, all the lines written made us feel very proud!
You gave us an uncountable support and we are sure that many travellers will consider us for a stay in Taormina thank to you!
We are happy that the location of our Residence made you feel in a familiar ambient, where you were able to breath the local life, looking at the neighbourg's habits, tasting Sicilian food and enjoying the relaxing life in Mazzeo.
Our beach is made of little pebble most of the time of the year but sometimes it changes aspect, depending on the waves. Indeed during these days we are having a sandy beach, different from the Syracuse beach anyway.
What we can say about our beach is that we simply like it, we don't have to worry about sand into shoes or attached to our towel, if windy we won't find it into our ears. And last but not least walking on it you can get a foot massage...very effective!
Now back to your review: our apartments have been built, furnished and decorated based upon our taste and trying to find the right solution to make guests feel very comfortable, for a memorable stay. Now that all is set what we have to do is simply to please the guests and offer our Sicilian hospitality!
We really hope to see you again, we won't forget your kindness and your cordiality.
Fufu and Pinuccio
