“A home away from home with fantastic hosts”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed here for 10 days with our boys aged 7 and 10. This refurbished, clean and modern apartment was fully equipped with a kitchen, good sized bathroom ( shower, wash basin and bidet). There were two bedrooms: the master bedroom with a double bed and a second room with a bunk bed. Linen and towels were provided and changed on a regular basis. We enjoyed our meals on the terrace/patio with a view of the garden and BBQ. There was also ample parking space. Our hosts Salvo, Debora and little Irene made us feel at home straightaway and continually offered us eggs from their hens and home grown vegetables. We also sampled their wine and olive oil. They were always on hand to give advice or recommendations. A fantastic base to discover this part of Sicily. From here we planned day trips to Etna, Aeolian Islands, Syracuse, Taormina and also visited the village of Savoca where scenes from "The Godfather I" where filmed. We were sad to leave and would highly recommend the place and hope to return!!!

“Without doubt one of our greatest holiday finds.”
Reviewed 10 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We count ourselves extremely lucky to have happened upon this very special apartment (one of two on the premises), run by two lovely people. The apartment we booked comprises of two bedrooms (one large with kingsize bed, the other smaller with bunks), a good-sized and well appointed bathroom (shower, bidet, toilet and basin) and well-equipped kitchen-diner. However we never ate in the kitchen! The pleasant, sheltered patio outside the front door has a large table and four chairs and looks out over rest of the roomy, paved and planted terrace. There is ample room for parking here, which does not detract from the ambience. A long lawn leads to mine host's produce garden.
The climate, of course, added to the quality of our experience, but the unsolicited gifts of their own wine, eggs and other produce were a delight. They were also unstinting in their help and advice, without once intruding on our privacy or peace. This made our first visit to Sicily a wonderful experience. We unreservedly recommend this location for the small family or group.

“Simply outstanding hospitality,”

This is the first time we have ever been tempted to write a comment on Trip Advisor but after our recent holiday at Borgo Borghese we could not let this wonderful young couple's hospitality go unsung. Debora and Salvatore were extremely helpful and made our trip memorable. We knew we were going to get something rather special when, in addition to our very warm greeting, we had the loveliest of welcome packs which consisted of, amongst other things: Salvatore's delicious home made wine (probably the best red wine I've tasted) lemons and limes grown in their own groves and the most wonderful canolli ( a Sicilian dessert) The accommodation is a very pleasant enclosed garden and our studio appartment had everything we needed for indoor and outdoor dining. It suits groups of friends or families. Location wise it's handy for Mount Etna, Taormina, Savoca (the village where they filmed 'The Godfather,' the Alcantara gorge and Forte D'Agro. Not far at all from the beach and you can walk to local restaurants in the evening.All in all a great place and thanks again Debora and Salvatore.

“Wonderful Relaxing Accomodation”
Reviewed 10 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We were a group of 5 people and stayed in this accomodation for 3 nights. It is perfect for those who want to be close to Taormina but not directly in it. It is easy to arrive to, and is in a safe area in the countryside. The owners are VERYYY helpful, they treated us like family, and helped us a lot. Plus they have an amazing, cute, gentle dog which is a total plus :)
The place is very clean, well kept and modern. We found everything we needed, even to cook.
I would definitely recommend it to families, group of friends, couples or any one who is looking for a nice, relaxing and welcoming place to stay in.
Looking forward to go again in Summer...

“The Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 13 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

At Borgo Borghese we found the perfect match between "RELAX" and "NIGHT LIFE". The location is gourgeous, surrounded by nature. The appartments are clean and well furbished, with all comforts and patios with table and chairs for dining outdoor. The owners are very welcoming and they gave us good advice on where to go and what to see in the area. Tarmina is only 10 chilometres away and not only is one of the most beautiful places I've visited, the night life there in summer is brilliant! The nearest beach is at about 500 metres from Borgo Borghese (we were used to go on a bike) but others can be reached easily by car. Beautiful sea, obviously... What else can I say, we spent two weeks there and at the end we didn't want to go home!
