5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
The intoxicating beauty of the view defines the elegant villa, with Mount Etna seen from some rooms, and from the breakfast room/terrace, where they serve a generous breakfast. We had a room with a spectacular vista and a terrace to savour the panorama, the only minor caveat being intermitent wifi.The lovely pool also boasts this panoramic scene. Staff are both obliging and friendly, with excellent language skills. Just up the road is the picturesque historic hillside citadel of Castelmola, which offers a superb variety of eateries. Down the road is the jewel of Sicily- Taormina- which never fails to charm. It was our fifth visit, this time just out of season, and so the numerous trips on offer to various parts of Sicily hadn't yet begun, but are worth doing. The bus service to Taormina is reliable, and preferable to mountain driving. It is truly a little piece of paradise.

A lovely hotel. The best thing is the location. Stunning views. The hotel itself could do with a bit of updating. The bathroom in our room was old, grubby and needed a lick of paint. Breakfast was basic but plenty of it. The staff are lovely, could’ve done with a corkscrew in the room as when I asked for a bottle to be opened the man at reception said no. A bit rude really. Other than that, I loved it and would stay again.
