Brilliant b&b and really helpful hosts. Tucked away and very private. We would definately stay there again and would not hesitate in recomending it to others. The rooms were very clean and the standard throughout the hotel was first rate. Breakfast coffee was fantastic and the homemade lemon jam is recommended

We just have returned from our holiday in Sicily. We stayed our first week in this excellent, delightful B&B. It was really unforgettable holiday and first of all thanks to this great family B&B with a super hosts. If I would say a very friendly and helpful hosts, I would say nothing! Signor Francesco, Signora Maria Giovanna, Emanuele and Gabriel are so kind, open, very hospitable and trully good-hearted people. We felt a part of the family and we were always welcome. Even on the family birthday party with a great food and drinks. Nothing was too much trouble for them. From the very beginning we were greeted with drinks while we checked in, later signor Francesco took us on a tour of the hotel and Giardini Naxos itself. He explained about the most beautiful and intresting places we need to see. The room was great, spacious and very clean and the bathroom as well (they cleaned up every day). We also had a balcony, from which we could enjoy an outstanding vieuw at the Etna Mount and green garden of this B&B. Every morning we had a very nice breakfast on the terras. What a wonderful experience to wake up with a cup coffee in the beautiful garden looking at Etna! Hotel has a free Wi-Fi connection. The beach is only 5-7 minutes walking distance from the hotel. . All was simply perfect! I will definitely come back if I will have a chance!!! I could not dream about better place and better holiday!!! Dear Signor Francesco and all your family, we would like to thank you for everything! Grazie mille!!!!!
Best wishes from The Netherlands!

I stayed here at this excellent BnB for three nights with my parents and I have to say that it has been such a pleasant experience to stay there. Our hosts Francesco and Maria Giovanna are a sheer delight and we really enjoyed their company. Highly recommended to any travelers who want to stay out of the tourist zones. Only thing is that you need a car to make it easier to get to. Can't say more but that it's fantastic and you should definitely stay there for a relaxing trip.

Villa Maria Giovanna was definately one of the best B&B we have ever been to! A great, clean house, big rooms, a fantastic view from the terrasse and a lovely garden. Additionally, infrastructure is fantastic: short ways to the beaches and to all interesting places to see at Sicilian East cost. But most important, Maria Giovanna and her team are sooo lovely! They helped wherever they could and supported us with fantastic ideas. Thank you for this beautiful stay! We will come back!!!! Best wishes, Mareike & Patrick

Dear Signor Francesco, Signora Maria Giovanna, Emanuele and Gabriel,

Your B&B brought tears to our eyes upon our arrival -- to find such a lush, green, rich garden full of exotic fruit trees in the shadow of Mt. Etna...What a difference from the "concrete jungle" of New York City that we are used to...

A true vacation spot to make us forget the every-day humdrum and stress of our lives back home.

We picked the figs, savored the lemons and dreamt of the avocados and mangoes that will be ready later on this season! Too bad we can't be there to pick them!

Your care towards the garden continued into your lovely B&B that felt like a home away from home...carefully-decorated rooms in gentle, pastel colors and the lovely, tiled bathrooms in blue and yellow.... -- exquisite to say the least!

And your hospitality shined above all....We really felt like part of the family! Plus, having breakfast outside on your veranda was utterly fantastic...a truly unique experience.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...Grazie di tutto!

We hope to spend more time at your lovely B&B in the near future!

Oh, PS -- if you are driving here, the directions provided by the owners is perfect...Make sure to make the turn at the "Gabbiani" Centro Commerciale shopping center...Go through the big parking lot and make a left down the little lane...The B&B is on the right - before a little house where the road bends. It is not hard to find. But if you get lost, just call and they are happy to help!

PPS -- the lovely beach is within walking distance...about a 10 minute walk...Perfect!

We was looking for a place were we can have a rest with our 1-years-old toddler. And we chose the Villa Maria Giovanna. It was right chose:) There is a cozy little house with its own kitchen, the food on which you can buy in a store nearby. Products selection is quite large and the shop is open from dawn to dusk every day. The house stands in a beautiful garden full of flowers and lemon trees. Sandy beach- to 7-minute walk by step from the villa. Beach so quiet and clean, there is sun loungers and boat rental. The owners are very friendly people. They helped us plan a route to Syracuse, and to find a stroller instead of a broken during the flight. We are pleased that we have chosen this place and will advise it for our friends

Not easy to find even with a GPS.. when you arrive...just keep on going in till u find the little sign. The place is beautiful...with a large lemon tree garden with the loveliest view of Mount Etna...Rooms are clean and perfectly kept with all amenities, the BB has its own parking inside and its easy to get to the Lungomare of Giardini Naxos...Breakfast is good and the hosts are friendly. If i ever go again to lovely Giardini Naxos i will stay here again.
