Borgopetra is a real find, a place you can't but fall in love with and it stays with you even after you have left (which is why we keep going back!). It is in a very typical Sicilian village, on the outskirts of Catania, that still feels very authentic and not spoilt by tourism. Even if you are in the... More

We stayed at Borgopetra for a week, with our two adult children and a friend of my son's, in the Baron's House. We found the place an oasis of peace and beauty, and Cristina and Toto and their friendly staff couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and to make life easy for us, booking restaurants and taxis...

I can't speak highly enough of the hospitality shown to our group of 10 including a baby by Cristina and Toto. Months before our stay Cristina regularly forwarded advice and recommendations and then during our time at Borgopetra booked taxis, restaurants, and tours for us without complaint. We were spoilt with freshly grown produce from the garden and wine from... More

A beautifully renovated 18th century home, run by a warm and welcoming couple. Christina and toto made us feel as if we were part of the family. They provided excellent recommendations in the area and all over the island that guided us through the rest of our trip in Sicily. The rooms were tastefully decorated with lots of character, and...

Thank you for making our visit to Sicily so relaxing with your amazing hospitality. The location is really wonderful - it's like stepping in to another world of peace and tranquility literally right off the street. Ideally located to explore Etna in all directions, the breakfast is also truly memorable. Thanks also for guiding us in when we arrived so... More

Thank you all! You were smart enough to choose the right season, which is very important. Between the last two weeks of May and the first two weeks of June you can have a wonderful time in Sicily (challenged by September/October), a pleasant summer with no excesses: not too hot and not many tourists around yet. The heat is starting... More

Hello and thank you! yours was a long stay and it is good to know you felt good and well cared for and that you enjoyed plenty of the territory’s opportunities and Borgopetra’s facilities and treats.

I stayed in Oleander cottage and Christine and her team did everything they possibly could to make my time there relaxing and comfortable. I'd particularly recommend the breakfast - such a choice of local and home made delicacies. The whole building is extremely stylish and each part of Borgopetra remains private and quiet. I'd recommend a stay to anyone looking... More

We spent 5 nights at Borgopetra and didn't want to leave. We stayed in Orchard House and loved the place - it was very comfortable and we made a lot of use of the roof terrace for lunches bought from the local shops.

Thank you, Sally. We are always glad to hear that guests feel comfortable in this old house and that our presence here helps foreigners to move with more confidence on this peculiar territory.
