The B&B is Perched on the ridge looking down on either side of Taormina, north and south, great panoramic views from terrace and from balcony. Very clean and well furnished room, bath en suite. Breakfast was fine, continental really with toasted sandwich. Parking on road outside was easy. Walk down steps for 10-15 mins straight into historic town. Back up...

Way up high, with fabulous views, away from it all. Very comfortable and great views. Delightful setting. A steep walk down to the town, great views- takes a bit longer coming up! Great recommendations for restaurants from the hosts. Clean and comfortable. Small, but modern bathroom. Our room had a little balcony and was very quiet. Looked out over Etna...

We stayed at this place for three days....Aug 4-6/2015. It is run by a very cordial family, Carmelo and his son Gabrielle. Nicest people you could ever meet. Rooms are clean and they come with air conditioning and wi fi. Bus stop into town is a block away. Would definitely go back.

The family run B&B makes it feel very homely. Our room was spacious and had outstanding views looking over Taormina. Despite arriving at 11am, they welcomed us in & took us straight to our room, before organising a beach trip to one of the local beach huts (beds & umbrella) which included a bus picking us up & dropping off...

The place was situated on the way to Castlemola and was a nice quiet place with a really nice restaurant nearby. The owners were very nice and greeted us every time they saw us.....even from their rooms, and were very proud of their city and history of the property. There are 2 bus lines that run along the main road...

We stayed here for one night in two rooms. One had a balcony, the other did not. However, this was irrelevant because there was a glorious terrace just outside the doors to our room that overlooked the sea. The rooms were impeccably clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were also clean and the shower from our room had the best view...

Online ads said that the rooms had balconies, that breakfast served home-made cakes and smoothies and pictures showed breakfast served outside on a terrace. Upon arriving on the B&B the owner and his son greeted us and led us to our room. The room had no balcony, but had two windows which did not open (the owner told us they...
