From the first moment my mum and I felt at home in this beautiful agriturismo. Gabriella welcomed us in such a warm way and the spacious clean room was just beautiful. Every morning we enjoyed the delicious breakfast and coming back here after visiting touristic villages Taormina and Giardini-Naxos was very relaxing (the swimmingpool was just heaven). Agriturismo Fondo Cipollate is absolutely one of our favorites.

This aguristismo was a highlight of our holiday in Sicily. Gabriella, the hostess and owner, was a stand out, she was so friendly, smiling and helpful. The accommodation was gorgeous, rustic, clean and spacious, the pool very welcome (and again immaculately clean). The location is handy to many sights and activities, including Catania and Taormina.
The only criticism would be that breakfast was slightly scanty and lacking variety, however, that is only in comparison to other places we stayed, actually adequate, if fairly basic.
The highlight and best part about staying here is the lovely places to sit outside for a wine in the evening, overlooking the valley, olives and citrus, bliss and worth far more than the nightly rate.

When we arrived at this place, we were pleasantly surprised. It was very quiet and peacefull and lovely trees with oranges everywhere. The staff was very helpfull and nice to talk to. The breakfast was the best that we got in Sicily, with fresh orangejuice every morning. It was also the only place where we got fruits and very nice bread. The rooms were very stylish and warm decorated. We went here in May when the weather was ok but not very warm at night. I think that during the summer (when it is real hot) it is a great place to use the swimming pool and sit outside in the evening to enjoy the peace and quiet. Good situated to visit mount Etna, Taormina and Giardini-Naxos.

The place, though difficult to find - would help to put some signs on the roads nearby -, was excellent. Incredible location with a marvellous view, original traditional furniture, spacious rooms, beautiful swimming pool and not so abundant but great breakfast with fresh orange juice, fresh fruits and homemade jam (try "gelsi"=mulberry). And the best: Gabriella, the owner, always helpful and giving good recommendations where to go! Can only recommend the place to everybody

This agriturismo had the best room, the best view and nicest surrounding! The view of the Etna, the hills and even the sea... we were flabbergasted to find such a nice place!!!

I would recommend this agriturismo to everyone. Gabrielle has all the details of what to see and do in the area.

Visit the restaurant : la cassita, that is just a 5/10 minute drive for wonderful Sicilian specialties!

Also you can book an excellent Etna tour with 'Truvatura Excursions" that picks you up and drops you off at the Fondo Cipollate.
