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 Taormina area
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.

Beautiful place. Debra and Salvo and their lovely daughter made this place a home. We enjoyed their company and the hospitality. Got to the house and found homemade wine from Salvo and the best cannoli we have ever had waiting for us. They were very helpful in finding places in Sicily. This home is in the middle to lemon groves with a terrace at the side and is just the best place to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. Sicily is a must for anyone going to Italy as it is indescribably beautiful. Stay with Debra and Salvo for a memorable vacation.

If you are looking for a place with a relaxing local atmosphere, kind helpful and generous hosts, - this is the place to go!
Located short distance to numerous wonderful sights you find this tranquil guesthouse run by the kindest Sicilian family.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was hard to leave as we felt quite at home without the hardest of our usual family duties. Traveling with twins under 2 years of age is not easy, but the decision to visit this place clearly was worth the trouble.
Our hosts always had time to assist us, and the facilities were perfect as a safe and soothing base to explore the beautiful surroundings from.
You can borrow bicycles to take a ride in the hills, where you will find interesting sights relatively close by. We also rented a car and as the possibilities here are endless, we had no problems visiting the many wonderful sights within short distance.
We truly recommend to vist Borgo Borghese as the kind family of the house provided us with not only great accommodation but also a unusually friendly and generous presence.

Staying with Debora, Salvo and their daughter was like staying with family. We were very kindly welcomed and looked after during our stay. They went out of their way to suggest activities and experiences yet allowed us our privacy and were never intrusive. They graciously share their vegetable garden, oranges, lemons, wine, oil and hospitality. The apartment is well decorated and supplied. The beds are good and the bathroom is modern and roomy. The location is perfect for a truly authentic experience allowing for cultural interaction without the buzz of tourist busses everywhere. Great outdoor living areas and easily accessible to roads leading to everywhere. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet and culturally rich experience you could find no better than staying with this lovely family.
