From the moment you meet Marco and Louisa you are confident that your stay will be memorable. They have not only thought of everything but are always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that you need for nothing. The villa is beautiful and with only two rooms it exudes a special feel. We stay in the Truman Capote room with a great terrace that included two sun-loungers and a table and chair set. A feeling of space was evident throughout the property. As the hosts were living across the road you had free run of the property which was a feast to the eye. As mentioned by other reviews the breakfast was exceptional. This was preordered and delivered to your table. The choice, quality and quantity was amazing. Thank you Marco and Louisa for a truly memorable experience.

Marco and Louisa are the ultimate hosts. The wonderful breakfast, helpful recommendations, and comfortable rooms made sure we had a relaxing time. It was Marco‘s top priority to make sure we felt comfortable and safe during our stay, which was especially appreciated during this difficult time marked by Covid restrictions. The Villa itself has wonderful rooms (just look at that view!). 5/5 highly recommended. Book here if you’re staying in Taormina.

I am late in writing this. But that doesn't mean it is not one of the truly wonderful places we have stayed in all our travels. What makes this, or any inn, truly great, is of course the people who own and run it. And here is no exception. Louisa and Marco are the most gracious of hosts. We were literally the last guests last season (and are not probably their last guests since then in light of the ongoing pandemic). But that will end and hopefully everyone will flock here. We loves sitting on the large covered porch having breakfast every morning. And we loved Marco's company even morning. Its a short walk into the historic part of town, but just far enough for it to be quiet at night. You simply can't go wrong here.

If you are in Taormina...you absolutely MUST go for cooking class here. The owner is Sicilian, but speaks wonderful English as she has lived in England for a number of years. We not only learned how to make some authentic Sicilian dishes, and drink great wines, we were fed to our chins with fabulous food. I simply can’t say enough about how much we learned and what fun we had. We started class around 11 AM, and left around 5 PM...it was great.

The house itself is absolutely beautiful, and with its wonderful ceramics and other whimsical decorations, it provides a delightfully warm and cheerful ambiance. Breakfast is served on a terrace overlooking the town and the sea. You will come down to a beautiful arrangement of fresh fruit, wonderful home-made yogurt, granola, jams and pastries, eggs if you have room for them, beautiful ripe tomatoes, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and wonderful bread and olive oil for dipping. The challenge, which I failed to meet over and over, is to stop eating. But even more special than the house, garden, and food are Marco and Louisa, the lovely young couple who are making it all happen. Nothing is too much trouble for them when it comes to making sure their guests are happy and have everything they need. Marco even took time out of his busy day to track down the jacket I'd left in a restaurant. We were really sad to leave them. The price is more than reasonable for all of this, and if you go, definitely take the cooking lesson they offer. Whether or not you are a foodie, you will learn a lot and and have a lot of fun. Kids are welcome, and the ones that we had in the kitchen had a wonderful time.
