We stayed a few days, mainly to see Mount Etna, and really wished we could have stayed longer. The owners have rebuit/renovated the Borgo from scratch and it is beautiful and amazing. This is the most friendly, helpful and efficient place we have been to in many years! We looked at a few rooms and they are all beautiful. We...

We loved everything about our stay except the weather, which I'm sure they would improved if they could. We arrived to drinks and cake and sat looking at the beautiful views to the sea and Mount Etna. Dinner was very good value and made by Sara's Mum and their chef which was tasty home-cooked food. Looking forward to going back...

Located not far from Taormina and Mt. Etna, a relaxing place with a marvelous staff. Lovely breakfasts and home cooked dinners if you wish. Lovely large swimming pool. Sara is a gem. Very helpful with travel arrangements, maps, area attractions, etc. Highly recommended!

This is a fantastic accomodation in Sicily. The views from this family-run B&B are stunning. Located on the mountainside below Mt Etnea, the property offers a fantastic view of the seaside as well and the ever spewing vents from Mt Etnea. One can reach several sites within an hour including the top of Mt Etnea, Taormina, Catania, and other areas...

This place is like heaven! We went there without a booking as we were travelling and had to change previous plans in the last minute. It was the best thing that happened to us! The place is amazing, nice rooms, clean, amazing views and best hospitality. The owner actually baked us a cake for breakfast after telling them the night...

We finally arrived after having some difficulty finding the hotel, but we received a very warm welcome after a busy day on Mount Etna. We had drinks and homemade almond cake before being shown to our room, which was 2 rooms and bathroom one with double and one with sofa bed so it was like a little apartment. The view...

Very warm and friendly staff. A welcomedrink was provided to us when we arrived and because it wasn't high-seasin, we had the option to choose the room that we liked the most. The restaurant provided tasty home-cooked food, served on the beautiful outside terrace of the hotel. Vegetarian options are easily improvised and very good. The swimming pool (with no...

We ended our three week visit to Sicily in the Agriturismo and what a joy. With overlooking on each side the sea and the Etna - as well as the extremely warm family running this place - this is in our opinion one of those gems you sometimes are lucky to find. If you are looking for a place to...

A beautifully restored and family run hideaway close to Etna and Taormina. Wonderful service from Sara who speaks excellent English and delicious Sicilian food cooked by her mother. Tables were set up each night on the terrace, very romantic, and the pool and lounge chairs were wonderful in the 35 degree heat! ! 2 nights was not enough! Highly recommend.

What a Gem an amazing hotel owned & run by the most charming helpful local family. The home cooked food was out of this world all cooked by Mama and team on site. Sarah (daughter) was front of house and was exceptional - a charming stay - I do not hesitate to recommend as first class in every respect.
