Reviewed May 6, 2012

An idyllic retreat, go if you love not being part of the homogenous tourist scene, are quite happy to manage with what there is and enjoy a more local Sicilian way of life with wonderful fresh local produce and in a sweet villa with a wonderful ful view and an occasional soundscape provided by roosters, cats and dogs sometimes all at once! Heart-stoppingly beautiful scenery all viewed from a 1 Euro bus ride into Taormina and once there be prepared to gasp every time you turn a corner or climb a stepped street.

Carmen was a delightful host and welcomed us warmly giving us loads of information and fruit from her garden. We cannot wait to go back and enjoy it for longer. Oh, and the sea is one minute's walk from your front door...

Situated in a very nice and quiet corner of a tiny sea village Letojanni Pirats' Turret offers comfortable rest for a family or a company of 4-5 persons. Small three-store house offers all the necessary for pleasant stay.
We've spent beautiful 6 days of a runaway from big city routine. I'd recommend this place for all categories of travellers seaking for calm ashore vacations.

This condo was ideal. We are a young couple from Toronto and we absolutely loved our stay here. Carmela the land lady was so helpful and accommodating. The condo was clean, very large, and equipped with everything we needed. Including a fully functional kitchen in which we used to make an amazing dinner with fresh sicilian fish and local sicilian produce. (Artichokes the size of your head).

She was very helpful and informative when it came to seeing the sights around Letojanni, including Taormina, Isola Bella and other places. The location was pretty ideal because it was affordable and a stones throw away from Taormina. It was also basically right on the beach. The community of Letojanni is miniature, the definition of small town. Very quaint, reminded me of the small town that Belle is from in The Beauty and the Beast.

Again when it came to recommendations for places to eat, Carmela came through. She suggested a restaurant with a Michelin star that does fish the best in sicily. Just down the street from the condo, on the beach :) Unfortunatley i forgot the name so be sure to ask her.

All in all, stay here, you will love it!!!

The location is incredibly beautiful, and the apartment is equipped with everything you could possibly need: heat/air con, washing machine, television, wireless, etc. On top of that, the owner, Carmen, is a fabulous person and I loved getting to know her. Highly recommended.

Nice large 2 room top floor appartment with a great balcony from where you can view palm trees on the small plaza in front - and real life everyday acitivities in Letojanni main street. Downside is the somewhat noisy motorway close by - but you get used to that. Great place for a couple who come to chill and do some excursions by car to Mnt Etna, Taormina, Messina and Catania in peace and quiet. We were there in the winter. Not sure how it is in the summertime. The landlady is friendly and will guide you to local area attractions

Carmen was a lovely landlady. Extremely generous (there was a huge plate of Sicilian lemons waiting for us in the apartment!!!!), helpful and kind. Her trips, restaurants and places to see suggestions made our holidays perfect!

The apartment was absolutely wonderful. Spacious bedroom with a wardrobe and air conditioning which was extremely helpful! The living room - kitchen area was very big and comfortable. Fully equiped kitchen with everything you need for cooking. We only ate out 4 times during 2 week stay! We love cooking and the kitchen was perfect! We spent our evenings eating home made food on our lovelu terrace overlooking a charming square. The location of the apartment could not be better! Less then 40m from the beach!!!

We have rented a scooter and went for numerous trips to: Savoca ('God Father' site and the best almond and pistachios bisquits EVER), around Etna (yummy wine!), lots of local towns in the mountains....

It was a perfect place to have relaxing and extremely enjoyable holidays!

I absolutely fell in love with Letojanni.

We will definately be back!

We had a lovely stay here, Carmen was very helpful and collected us from the train station and explained what there was to do when we arrived. The house was beautiful, small but with a lovely patio overlooking the sea and barbeque. The house is a bit out of town so nice and quiet but close to the bus stop for Taormina (about 20mins). Letojanni has lots of places to eat, no supermarkets but nice little delis and Toarmina and Etna are not far. The only problems were that the kitchen was not very well equipped in terms of utensils and there was no left over staple goods so we had to buy all basics (fairy liquid, sponges, salt pepper etc) when we arrived. Also bring ear plugs, the cockerel next door likes to get up very early! Lovely little town, lovely place, and the beach and sea are gorgeous and only 5 mins from the house.
