5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Perferct place for grate family (and not only family) vacation. Just next to the see. Very good service and very friendly stuff. Good coffe in local bar. Close to the stome and market.
Olso close to Taormina and Savoca. We had a car, but bus stop was not far.
Perfect place for a good value.

This campground was fantastic. Great spot and the family that run the campground are so helpful and friendly. We pitched our tent here for four nights, it had free ping pong, barbeques, great coffee and the bathrooms were always clean. I even bought a scratchy at the local tabacchi here and Silvio helped me with it, i won 100euros! Great experience here, would definatly recommend it.

We took mobile house fot 5 days. Location 30m from sea, clean, with towels and linen.
Every mobile house has own terrace, with table and seats. Camp has own beach.
Special thanks goes to staff, expecially Silvio who gave us very good advices on where to go, what to see (Tindari), where to park (Taormina, Catania), ...
Every morning they make delicious croissants (jam, chocolate, creme) in the bar. Must try!
Recommended for families with young children!

Room Tip: Best is first on to the sea :-)

We stayed at La Focetta Sicula for 5 days between the 29th December 2012 and the 2nd January 2013.

Our accomodation was in the bungalows which had 2bedrooms, a living area with kitchenette and a shower room/toilet.

Outside of the bungalow, we had a porch with table and chairs which was extremely comfortable for having breakfast in the fresh sea air.

We were a group of 19 people. 8 adults and 11 children. Our primary concern was that the kids would not feel constrained by a hotel room when returning to the accomodation. This was easily achieved at La Focetta since the Camp is very well sized. There is a lot of open space and also, very easy access to the beach.

The bungalows themselves are also very comfortable. They have independent heating units, and this ensured that we were extremely warm during the night.

Silvio was very courteous during our stay. He was always available to assist us. Similarly, the rest of the family who own the campsite were very friendly throughout the holiday. One could feel that it was a real friendliness and not just a provider/client politeness. They are truly genuine people. That was very much appreciated.

The campsite is also equipped with BBQs which the guests could use at will. We made good use of these. It was quite enjoyable having BBQs in December/January.

Round the corner from the campsite, there is a large discount store which enabled us to stock up quite well. On our first night, however, we were not able to find Charcoal for the BBQ. Silvio provided this willingly when we asked for assistance.

In essence, we had the comfort of hotel rooms (I would say even more comfortable since they are compact but extremely practical and well compartmentalised). We also had the advantage of being in a secure environment, with parking included in the camp enclosure and wide open spaces (still within the fenced perimeter of the site) for the kids to play in.

Apart from this, we were within easy reach of the main sites in the area which included Etna, Alcantare, Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Etnapolis (Ok not a "site" but more like shopping therapy for the girls), Porte di Catania (same comment as Etnapolis) and similarly located sites in the area (Parco dei Nebrodi ecc).

I would definitely recommend Camping La Focetta Sicula. Likewise, I can also do this for Silvio and the rest of the staff at La Focetta who were not intrusive, but were always on hand to assist, advise and provide to our requirements.

Room Tip: The rooms are very well placed. We were located in the rooms shown on the website (red kitchen). The...

We stayed in Camping La Focetta Sicula for 4 nights during the last week of September 2012.
The place is the perfect choice for an affordable vacation with family and friends. The site is very well maintained, clean and comfort. the beach is practically a privet one, clean and with beautiful clear water. We stayed two adults and two children in our cabin, and it was just perfect. There is a very nice supermarket very close, and you can also find very nice restaurants less than 10 minutes driving. The place itself is a wonder to every one who is looking for a place to return at the end of a traveling day in the area, and great to stay if you just want to enjoy the sea.
Silvio, who runs the place, is a great host, willing to conduct and give free and useful advice which made our staying a pleasure and hopefully to return soon once again.

My wife and I spent 12 fabulous days at La Focetta at the beginning of October it is a great destination to get away from it all.Silvio and his family cannot do enough for you, they're amazing.The location is front line beach and the sea is absolutely divine.I actually read 3 books whilst watching the fishermen which is unheard of.It was a total switch off for my wife and I The local bakery and supermarket are only 500 metres away and many a morning Silvio lent me his bike for the fresh ciabatinis,integra,croissants and olive bread(delicious)
Our accommodation was a bungalow,spotlessly clean,with every amenity.The covered patio outside was fantastic where we spent many an hour enjoying local food and wine looking out to sea.There is a fantastic BBQ area where I practised my cooking skills.Silvio and his sister Melinda were always at hand with their invaluable local knowledge and Santo and Maria(Silvo;s mum and dad) were an absolute delight.Santo and myself watched football one evening discussing tactics,it was great!We had free computer and internet access available which were really handy.La Focetta is a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding areas and I cannot recommend it highly enough so much so we are already planning a return visit in spring.
