D'Orange D'Alcantara is hardly some five star resort in Taormina, but it is also very affordable and not very far from a lot of great locations in Sicily (including Taormina). Francavilla di Sicilia is a charming (albeit small and not touristy) town. The rooms were basic but clean. The staff tried to help. The restaurant in the hotel was okay and there are a couple of small family places in town that have good food. But what I liked about it is it is a great and affordable place to travel from to explore the surrounding area on day trips. There are very interesting hill towns all around Francavilla that are areas I would want to explore in the future. You are not far from Etna, Taormina, Savoca, or Catania. I stayed for about five days in May 2013 and had a good time. I would recommend it.
The British trekking group was there at the same time (they use that hotel as a base), and I might even consider contacting them about doing one of their walking tours in the future (they seemed to have a decent and varied trekking itinerary and their tour guides were very helpful--even to people not in their tour).
