The Sicily region

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Sicily is an island full of strong contrasts, a land rich in history and culture, lively, enticing cities of art, ancient fishermen’s villages where time seems to have come to a standstill and amazing natural wonders, beautiful beaches and islands where you can relax surrounded by crystal clear waters.

The island is a crossroads for populations who were completely different from one another, who have all left permanent traces of themselves in the island’s culture.

Discover Sicily and discover the world. The world's first multicultural society, our island is Italy's (and Europe's) most historically cosmopolitan region, having been ruled by Asians, Africans and Europeans. There's no other place on Earth like it.

Our island is a unique place full of art, archaeology, history, folklore and Nature's treasures.breathtaking scenery and, of course, great food.


The Romans called Sant' Alessio "Promontorium". The present-day name first appears in a document of 1117 and probably derives from Alexius emperor of Constantnople, who was a guest at the castle around which there later developed the whole village.

So the castle, as we see it today, dates from the Norman period. It was restructured at the start of the nineteenth century by the English, who also built the outer ring of walls, to defend it against attacks by the French, who were preparing to invade Sicily from Calabria.

"A Pearl in the hills over the Ionian Sea (Sicily)"

We spent 2 weeks at this delightful specialty guest house in the hills above the beautiful Ionian Sea. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like family by Debora and Salvo and their beautiful daughter, Irene. GPS will get you to the corner nearest the house, but the GPS said turn left where no left was possible, so we continued a bit and wound up at a gas station just down the road. We called Debora on her cell phone and Salvo came in a few minutes and showed us how to get to the house. We were greeted with smiling faces and immediately shown around the property. There are two nicely renovated apartments; “Luna” and “Sol”. A third apartment is under construction. We got “Luna”. When we entered the apartment, there was a delightful assortment of homemade and home grown things for us on the kitchen table. Wine made by Salvo, Peppers, Tomatoes and Eggplant grown by Salvo and some fresh eggs laid by Salvo's chickens. The apartment was beautiful, clean, quiet and functional. It has a nice kitchenette with stove and cooktop, fridge and freezer and all the necessary pots, pans, dishes, etc. Salvo took us for a tour of the outside including the amazing garden. We picked figs off the trees and ate them still warm from the Sun. What a treat! Debora speaks English quite well. Salvo does pretty good too. Both of them are happy to help plan an itinerary for you and provide directions and recommendations when asked. Debora even made us dinner one night. On the menu was Eggplant Parmesan. Delicious, thanks Debora! Another night, Salvo knocked on the door and offered a taste of the Lemon Liquor he made. The house is located about 10km north of Taormina. This puts you within a stone’s throw of the A18 Autostrada which takes you all along the Southeast shore from Messina to Catania. There is plenty of local shopping for food and other necessities. In the neighboring towns, there are many quaint restaurants and Bars. Some are better than others, of course. Don't miss the town of Savoca where scenes from Godfather I were shot. We had dinner there at Bar Vitelo. Quite a treat. We took excursions each day. We visited Mt Etna and Stromboli Island which are both active volcanos. Etna requires driving part way up the mountain then a cable car ride up some more and finally a Giant Jeep ride to the top. You get to rent a down coat before the final ascent because it is COLD up there. Stromboli was part of a Mini Cruise to the Aeolian Islands This volcano has eruptions several times an hour. The cruise boat lingers after sunset so you can see the fire shooting out the top. There is so much to see. There are Ruins, Churches, Museums, Gardens to fill your days and plenty of nice places to eat lunch and dinner. This is a delightful destination. Making Borgo Borghese your home base while you are here is a great way to top it all off. Sicily is deceivingly large with lots to do. Plan to spend some time with Debora and Salvo. You won’t regret it.
