“Hidden Gem in Giardini Naxos”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

My husband and I were extremely lucky to find this spectacular boutique B&B through friends’ recommendation. We were looking for a cozy and quiet place were we could have a romantic break from the frantic London life. As soon as we entered the main gates we had a perception we were going to fulfill our expectations: a mile long driveway surrounded by palm trees, orange and lemon trees...so lush! At the end of it we parked our car and were welcome by Paola, whose family owns the villa. An ice-cold lemon granita and local yummy cakes were the perfect introduction to the idyllic swimming pool area, a blue oasis built within original lava rock from the nearby Mount Etna. We were then taken to our room (Nirvana Luxury its name...they couldn't have chosen a more appropriate one!), which had its own private patio and en suite bathroom, overlooking the swimming pool. It felt like heaven! The first day we asked for breakfast to be served to our room…I was dying for some fresh fruit while my husband was clearly feeling inspired by the sea breeze and fancied some savory nibbles. Well…I could not believe my own eyes when we opened the door and saw those trays full of the freshest and juiciest oranges, apples, peaches, cherries and plums I have ever tasted in my entire life! Some of them are directly sourced from the fruit trees around the property (100% organic I can guarantee!!!). My husband had some super rich sandwiches with home made bread, cured meats from Mount Etna and delicious cheeses from local producers. Just amazing! From that breakfast on our holidays were flying by, we felt pampered and spoilt by Paola and her family. The evenings were the ideal moment for a glass of wine by the pool or simply a game of cards and a chat, when birds and crickets were the only soundtrack. During all our stay Paola gave us precious advice on local places to visit, either touristic or off the beaten track. Her place sits in the perfect spot if you wish to explore the glitzy town of Taormina for its shopping and fancy restaurants. Giardini Naxos and its golden beaches are reachable on foot. If you are into hiking and trekking you simply need to drive for a few miles to the Gole dell'Alcantara (a proper canyon with rafting waters) or through dense woods all the way to the summit of Mount Etna. If you instead prefer to sit back and simply chill out, B&B La Villa is the perfect place to spend a few unforgettable days. We will certainly be back!!!

“Gorgeous setting and helpful, friendly hostess”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

Absolutley lovely holiday! Beautiful setting with lemon and orange trees, palm trees everywhere, horses, dogs, cats, puppies, hens and geese. Breakfasts were delicious- freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, croissants, fresh eggs, and a selection of homemade dishes varying each day. Paola and her mother were great hostesses and were always available with help and advice. Paola even organised a wine tasting for us at a local vineyard, as well as a trip to an art gallery opening of a friend of hers, in the nearby town of Taormina. Couldn't fault the hospitality at all- the pool was beautiful and the location idyllic. It was a fair walk from the beach, but definitely doable. Meanwhile, buses to the main town were frequent and we rented a scooter one day which was well worth it. Definitely recommend it!

“un posto meraviglioso”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

Ho trascorso tre giorni dall'11 al 13 giugno con due mie amiche in questo B&B favoloso. Il posto si trova immerso in un immenso limoneto in mezzo al quale è posizionata la villa circondata da un giardino ricco di piante e fiori di ogni colore, in un angolo del giadino è posizionata la bellissima piscina nella quale abbiamo potuto fare più di un tuffo.Abbiamo alloggiato nell'appartamento Corinthia Suite, pulito e arredato con gusto, composto da una camera doppia con terrazza e da una stanza singola con un comodo letto da una piazza e mezza (in cui ho dormito io!) con un fantastico terrazzino vista Etna!!! (il panorama è incantevole), l'appartamentino ha anche un comodo bagno con doccia e vasca e un piccolo salottino. Ciliegina sulla torta è la colazione per tutti i gusti, io e le mie amiche abbiamo gusti diversi in fatto di cibo, ma siamo state soddisfatte in pieno dalle attenzioni di Paola e Marillina, in particolare vi consiglio le marmellate ( sono buonissime e fatte con frutta locale). Io spero di tornarci presto anche perchè vorrei visitare delle località della zona che non ho avuto modo di visitare questa volta
