Porta del Vento is the most friendly and homey B&B we have stayed in Sicily. Elisa, Alba and Dario are extremely friendly and gave us amazing tips and suggestions of places to visit, restaurants and beaches. They are amazing hosts and made us feel part of their home!
The B&B is ideally located in Giardini Naxos, 2 mins walk to the beach and next to an amazing gelateria for a quick sweet treat before going to bed. It is 15 mins away by car from Taormina and a quick drive away from Catania city on the highway A18 (but they're also bus services from Giardini to Taormina). We stayed at the stanza grecale (the violet room). The room was very spacious and it is very nicely decorated with paintings by Elisa. Also, don't miss Dario's pics, they're very cool. The bathroom is brand new and spotless. Breakfast is abundant and the coffee is incredible.
We cannot recommend this place more highly!!!
