We spent a memorable week in Sicily while staying in La Capanna di Giuseppe. Maria and Giuseppe have offered a lot of hospitability, recommendations, and they've been a great company for our little one. Each day a different breakfast is served with delicious, fresh local products. It is very relaxing to wake up and take the first meal of the day with Etna and the surrounding beautiful scenery in the background, while admiring the well-kept garden of the capanna. Cleanliness and detail can be observed all around. The rooms are equipped with all necessities, including accessories needed for young children. We highly recommend a stay here, especially because Maria and Giuseppe are always ready to help with a smile. We will surely return in the near future!

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana da sogna nella Sicilia e nella Capanna Di Giuseppe. Maria & Giuseppe hanno offerto molta ospitalita`, raccomondazione, e felice compania per il nostro piccolo bambino. La colazione e sempre buona con prodotti tipici e freschi, ed e molto bello cominciare la giornata vedendo l'Etna e il bellissimo giardino, curato con molto amore. Le camere sono puliti e comode, e hanno le accessorie necessarie per i bambini. Maria e Giuseppe sono sempre pronti per aiutare con un sorriso. Promettiamo che ci rivedremo presto!

La Cappana di Giuseppe sits in the outskirts of Gardini naxus close to the autostrada amongst fields of orange and lemon trees and surrounded by views of the beautiful mountainous landscape including neighboring town Taormina and, of course the (often snow capped) smoking giant, Etna.

The B&B is located outside the nearest town further than you would want to be walking each day, so I would recommend taking a car but then I would recommend a car to anyone wanting to really see Sicily and her best bits. The location is ideal for seeing the whole of the east coast of Sicily, indeed, I had planned to move B&B each night but instead I drove from here to as far as Messina and Siracusa for day trips, returning to La Cappana each evening.

The rooms, whilst basic, were clean, comfortable, spacious and most have pictures of the local area past and present which I thought added a nice touch. At night, the peace and quiet is wonderful and makes it very easy to sleep well - or was it the vino? Don't be put off by the proximity to the autostrada, I didn't notice the noise by day or night.

There is a shared living room area (in the bit i stayed in) which has comfy chairs, a tv and many interesting Sicilian themed books which was a nice area to spend a few moments winding down at the end of a very busy day's sightseeing.

Breakfast was served on the terrace each day in the beautiful gardens of the property (the views of Etna in the morning are particularly nice) and consisted of fresh pastries, breads, yogurts, cereals, coffee, tea, eggs, bacon and the freshest freshly squeezed orange juice you can get - made with oranges straight from the trees!

Maria and Giuseppe (the proprietors) were really friendly and helpful and knew the area very well so were able to advise on how best to enjoy a period of stay in Sicilia. If there was something they didn't know, the answer was almost certainly lurking in the plethora of brochures, business cards, maps, books etc that they have available for visitors.

I had a very pleasant stay here, as did my colleague who I went with, and I would highly recommend to anyone who is visiting Sicily. I'll be returning in the summer to stay for another four days when I shall be pestering Maria and Giuseppe for some more of their incredible limoncello!

Hope this is helpful!
