We stayed 3 nights out of our 17 day Italy trip. Of all the hotels and apartments, this was our splurge and it was worth it. Upon arriving from Taormina in the dark, we were a little concerned about the neighborhood our GPS took us through. We arrived at the private gated secure parking and were greeted by a very... More

This is a very, very good hotel! Quite difficult to find - would suggest locating on Google Earth first. After announcing our arrival at the main gate, we were redirected to the car park where the gates were opened and we were met by a receptionist in a golf buggy to take us to our room with our luggage.

This is our second time here and it was as lovely as the last. The garden grounds are lovely to stroll in especially in the evening, the restaurant is really excellent, and for the nights when you don't want an elaborate meal there are a few good local places a short walk away. The pool area is relaxing although this... More

This is a beautiful quirky hotel. We loved it. Ok. So it won't work for you if you like nightlife or crowds. But we don't. Beautiful gardens. Historic old residence. Beautiful chalet bedrooms. Quiet pool. And the birdsong! The food was superb and every single member of staff was smiling and helpful and made us feel like we really mattered.... More

We were excited about staying here due to the castle but what we didn't appreciate is how nice the grounds of the hotel would be. The pool area is beautiful and the whole hotel was quiet and relaxing, not sure if we got lucky but at times we were only one of two couples by the pool. Staff very welcoming... More

We stayed four nights at this charming hotel. The staff are friendly, the gardens beautiful, our room was very large and quiet. The location might be a little isolated for some, but we saw it as a plus. We enjoyed the breakfast, though the location and ambience of the restaurant is disappointing. We therefore elected to eat lunch and dinner... More

It is not helpful to categorise this hotel under 'Taormina'. It is 10 miles or so away, and far further removed from the bustle and congestion of Taormina. It is in the country, and as peaceful a place as you could wish for (providing that you have a GPS! The rooms are in luxurious cottages, some quite a distance from... More

Yes, it's a real castle. No, you don't get to stay in it. That's for the staff, reception, etc. but it is real, 16th century, built for a Duke. You will be staying in what were perhaps the servants quarters. Very commodious however, and with the outdoor patio with table + chair gives you a very nice cottage kind of... More
