    Almost perfect!

    This family owned establishment has exceptional service. The owners go out of their way to please you. Breakfast is abundant with the typical fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, cold cuts and homemade cakes and tarts --eggs upon request. Rooms are very clean if somewhat stuffy because a/c is turned off during the day to economize energy. The place is relatively newly renovated so everything sparkles. It is well located for all the local sights. Ample free parking, good wifi. Gorgeous pool overlooking olive groves with the sea in the distance. What's not to love? The beds are hard and older bones will feel it in the morning.

    Enjoyed our stay tremendously, we were greeted like Royalty! Upon checking in we had welcome cocktails and pastry on the terrace over looking an amazing view and an inviting swimming pool. The Inn is family own, built by the owner and managed by his wife and 2 daughters. The property is stunning, it's immaculate with incredible views. We had the privilege of staying for dinner, everything was amazing! The food is prepared by the lady of the house, everything was delicious and presentation were amazing! It was truly fantastic to enjoy an authentic Sicilian Family Meal! Our room was well appointed with a large comfortable bed, great balcony overlooking the breathtaking views. The location was ideal, 30 minutes or less from Mount Etna or if your coming from Taormina it was about the same distances. The inn offered a great breakfast, had free parking, great wifi and fantastic hospitality! My biggest regret we should have stayed an extra day to enjoy the facilities, such as the inviting swimming pool!
