“Outstanding B&B experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

This villa is a real treasure. The place oozes charm and the location is quiet and in a perfect spot to head to the sea or get on the autostrada. Our room was amazing with an added bonus: a huge balcony overlooking nothing less than the mighty mount Etna. Is was like having a picture frame view of the mountain. Awe inspiring and a bit scary at the same time. The villa itself is a beautiful estate with aristocratic bones. Agatha and Salvatore tended to all of our needs. They are wonderful people. This B&B offered the best breakfast so far we have ever had in Italy. The quality of the food and the quantity will keep you going until late afternoon. They offered us everything from local cheeses with honey, citrus products, fruits and even organic eggs. This is a beautiful place well taken care of and perfect for a homebase on the east side of Sicily.

We stayed at the place twice - it's really charming and peaceful. Large terrace (really large - about 20 sq. m) with Etna view, Sea is also visible but too far - about 20 min by feet.
Very friendly and helpful owners - Agata & Salvatore, but they don't speak English so try to learn some basic Italian phrases to begin with :).
Breakfasts are delicious, with fresh red orange juice and a lot of Sicilian specialties.
Staying here you feel yourself not just a hotel guest but a family friend.

Definitely a stay for the discerning independent traveller. Agata and Salvatore's home is beautiful and they were very gracious hosts. Despite the language difficulties on both sides they were very helpful. Our room had a private terrace overlooking Etna and the wonderful breakfasts were served on the garden terrace also overlooking Etna. It was a lovely haven after a busy day exploring. We did have a little difficulty in finding it but it was most certainly worth it. All in all a delight!

We absolutely LOVED the Villa Chiarenza and its charming hosts Agata and Salvatore. We thought the breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the garden were amazing, the room was everything we needed for peace, view, and a good night's sleep, and we loved hearing all about the history of the villa. It is 5 minutes (by car) to the beach and all the restaurants along the Lungomare of Giardini Naxos, and ten minutes drive to the cable car up to Taormina, so location is excellent. When we said good bye after three nights there, we felt like we were saying goodbye to dear friends.

Room Tip: The second floor room with the large terrace has fabulous views of Mount Etna.

We stayed in this amazing B&B for 3 nights and loved it.
The owners are incredibly helpful and welcoming. Our large room was clean and comfortable - with an amazing view of Mt Etna.
The breakfast is fabulous, with different dishes each morning served on the lovely terrace.
The location is great for visiting Mt Etna and Taormina.

We stayed for three nights in this Bed & Breakfast and we loved every minute of it. The owners were very friendly and trying to make you feel at home. Breakfast is well taken care of and ensures you don't need anything for the rest of the day. Clean rooms and stunning views on mount Etna from your balcony or roof top terrace. The villa is beautifully decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. Although the walk to the beach is 15 minutes, we did not care as it offers some good peace and quietness during the night. By car about 10 minutes away from lovely Taormina.

Rating of the swimming is not applicable as there was not one, restaurant is rated on breakfast only as this was an B&B.
