“A must visit in a motorhome in Sicily.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

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.

You may find that the bungalows are small for a family of 5 but otherwise it is a very modern and well equipped bungalow complete with air conditioning and wifi. Each bungalow has its own private facilities and kitchenette. The camping site is located in a very quiet area and sitting directly on the beach. It is also very close to Taormina and other places of interest in the North East of Sicily.On top of this, the staff are very friendly and helpful and do get out of their way to help you in any way they could.

This is my second time at this place. The bungalows are small but have loads of storage space (we are a family of five) and have their own bathroom/shower.

Each bungalow has it own front porch and there are bbq's , games area and swings.

The site is right on the beach and close to Taormina and about 40mins away from etna

The owners live on site and are very friendly and ready to help.

Its about 20mins drive after leaving the auto strada, but that guarantees peace and quiet

I will surely be there again

I don't know why so many people give this a rating of 5, as this is by FAR the worst site (as far as facilities are concerned) on our 7 week tour of Italy and France. The toilets are old and decrepit, there is one cold shower, and one hot shower with coin payment - both in poor condition and both mixed male/female. The washing facilities are cold water only, and mixed male and female also.

The location of the site is ideal for visiting Taormina, and you are right next to the beach, so a good site in this respect.

As we were staying with our discount card ACSI, the owner's daughter didn't allow us more than 3 amps unless we agreed to pay an additional charge for anything over a given total wattage. So ACSI need to check on this.

I can fully recommend Camping La Focetta Sicula. Bungalows are really comfortable and full equipped (kitchen, air cond. vifi ), beautiful view from the terrace.
Sea only 20 m from bungalow. Everything`s there including bar serving Sicilian beer and delicious coffee.
Staff is great! Very friendly and professional.

This campground was fantastic. Great spot and the family that run the campground are so helpful and friendly. We pitched our tent here for four nights, it had free ping pong, barbeques, great coffee and the bathrooms were always clean. I even bought a scratchy at the local tabacchi here and Silvio helped me with it, i won 100euros! Great experience here, would definatly recommend it.
