The small town of Sant Alessio Siculo is very small and is blessed by three things. The sea, the beautiful countryside which is surrounded by high hills with little villages at the very top, and last but not least, La Focetta Sicula, Camping site. This family run camping site is run by the energetic Silvio who is always around helping people and making them more comfortable during their stay. For my wife and I it was our first Motorhome trip. We love mountainbiking and wanted to visit somewhere that was not too far from home (MALTA) and which had good cyclig terrain, with the added benefit of visiting small interesting villages in the nearby surroundings. We really hit the nail on the head with Sant Alessio Siculo. Close to Taormina to the south and Nizza Di Sicilia to the North, and surrounded by hilltop villages Forza D'Agro, Casalvecchio, Savoca (where part of the Godfather was shot), it was just what we were looking for. Tying all these together was our Campsite which is situated right on the beach with it's black lava/sand. We were given a pitch right on top of the beach which had the waves breaking 24 hours a day, music to our ears, especially at night where they rocked us to sleep. One could choose a pitch amongst the trees if there was enough space (Easter week was quite busy). The amenities were very clean, functional and organized with Silvio and his team on top of things all day long. Stocking on supplies was a breeze since the ARD supermarket is only 100 metres away from the Campsite. One could also choose to cross a wooden bridge that took you to Santa Theresa (the next village) which had more choices of shops and a better super market. On the campsite amenities included Barbecue area with 3 Brick barbecues that could be used by anyone on the site, a nice Cafe/Bar run by Silvio's family, a huge games room, and a great atmosphere. I would most definitely recommend this place to anyone with an adventurous disposition. In fact we can't wait to go back later on this year to meet friends we made at the campsite.
