As we drove up the windy road to the hotel, we were amazed by the views and somewhat concerned about the remote location. The hotel décor was somewhat dated with quaint antiques but everything worked very well, the room and bathroom were spacious with comfortable bed and nice balcony to sit outside. The restaurant balcony and swimming pool area have stunning views across the hillside with Etna beyond and breakfasts outside were a special treat. The few staff who spoke good English were very helpful and made it like staying with friendly relatives. The hotel shuttle bus worked perfectly for days out in the local area... by 4pm we were ready to come back and have a break before looking for somewhere to eat. On a couple of days we took tours and needed to get an early taxi to the bus station. The hotel restaurant was good and there are some nice local restaurants so we only eat out in Taormina on one evening. We finished the week discovering the local Chicchirichi restaurant which was a spectacular dining experience. A really pleasant and stress free holiday.

Restored hillside villa with views of Mount Etna and Taormina bay, in the medieval hamlet of Castelmola, 4 km from central …More
This family-run hotel (converted villa as is typical in Sicily) is a most pleasurable
treasure. Wonderful breakfast at the Bar San Giorgio with splendid views of the sea.
Personnel are exceptionally helpful, practical, and accommodating. A treat!
