“Perfect!”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

You cannot ask for better hosts than Deborah and Salvo ........ and you won't find better!
We spent 1 week in Apartment Sol. It was perfect. The apartment was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable. We had a lovely private garden that was perfect to relax in. It's an easy 15 minute walk to a choice of 2 supermarkets for all your requirements. Although eggs, courgettes, cucumbers and even wine weren't required to be purchased as these were all provided by Deboarh and Salvo.
If you are arriving on a Sunday be sure to do your shopping before you arrive as the supermarket shuts at lunchtime.
We enjoy walking and Salvo was able to give us information about local walks and those further afield at, for example Mount Etna. Local restaurant recommendations were all spot on!
Thank you for a wonderful stay If we are ever back in Sicily again we will definitely include a stay at Borgo Boghese.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife, my seven month old son and I spent 2 weeks here in October 2015.
The accommodation is perfect, clean, well equipped and peaceful.
The real treat though was the hosts, they went above and beyond what anyone should ever expect.
We were very late arriving due to problems at the car rental desk, the owners met us in the local town and we followed them to the property.
Everything was immaculate, they even had a basket of vegetables and eggs from their garden and some milk in the fridge for us, they had a high chair and cot and even night light for our son.
The property was spacious and airy with a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable large bed.
The garden was lovely with space to sit out and relax and also the owners vegetable patch (and donkeys and horse in stables, and chickens in a coop).
A car is necessary for this property, it is only a short walk from two nearby towns, but it can be very dark at night.
It was all perfect, but without a doubt the best part was the owners, the whole family made us feel so welcome, we were worried travelling with our baby for the first time, but this family made it a wonderful experience, I cannot thank them enough.
They made us a home made pizza one night, they gave us some home made pistachio cake and home made limoncello on other nights, they gave us good advice on where to visit and where to park when we arrived there, they had boundless enthusiasm and patience. They showed real genuine affection to our son!

Thank you so much for making our first holiday with our baby boy such a wonderful experience!
Thank you Debora, Salvo and Irene.

“Wonderful. Utterly Wonderful.”

A very nicely presented, clean and well-maintained apartment, run by absolutely flawless hosts.

The property and facilities were all very good, but really it is Debora, Salvo & Irena in their capacity as exceptional hosts, who make this such a wonderful place to stay. We were presented with freshly grown (and delicious) vegetables from their garden upon arrival, and they even went so far as to host (an amazing) barbecue for all of the guests on one of the nights. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, but at the same time they were not overbearing in any way whatsoever - they had the balance just perfect.

And as an additional bonus, our kids even got to ride around the garden on the family's donkey, Pepino - very exciting for the little ones!

Provided you have a car, the property is very conveniently located, with a huge amount of interesting and beautiful places within easy reach.

Just the perfect place for a family summer holiday.

“Just the best place to stay in Sicily!”

We stayed at Borgo Borghese for two weeks in July 2015.

The holiday exceeded our expectations in all respects

The best bit about our stay was undoubtedly the hospitality and friendliness of Salvo and Debora.They speak wonderful English and offer loads of great advice about what to do and how to do it.

The accommodation is excellent and the area is a really good base to explore the east of Sicily.

It's greener and scenic than the south and with bikes to borrow for a short ride to the local beach which makes it ideal for days when you don't want to drive

The villa has everything you need.
Salvo gave us lots of fresh fruit and vegetables he had grown and also his own eggs (actually his chickens laid them!

The weather was perfect for the whole time we were there

Air con in the property is a blessing as it does get hot

We mixed between eating in and going out

Forza d'agro and Savocca are both short drives away and good for dinner

Taormina is close by and despite it being high season we had no trouble getting there or parking. It is a really beautiful place to visit both day and night and Castelmole above is also worth seeing.

There is so much to do and Salvo and Debora will guide you expertly to a fantastic holiday.

By the way Irina their daughter is beautiful as are the donkeys and pepino is the real star !

Thank you Salvo and Debora for making us so welcome we recommend Borgo Borghese to everyone!

“Most generous hosts in the world!”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were blown away by Debora and Salvo's generosity. They have a large garden and gave us wonderful vegetables and eggs as well as home baking. Usually we eat in the evenings at restaurants but with our own garden to sit in and enjoy the evening sun and with Debora's suggestions as to what to do with her ingredients we changed our routine. We enjoyed being in the countryside but only about 10 minutes walk along a riverside track to either town - Sant'Alessio to Santa Teresa - for coffee or supplies or the beach. Bicycles are also available for exploring and it is a short car trip to Taormina - Salvo makes sure you know where to park.
Our apartment was spotless and very well supplied. But best of all was the comfortable bed and lovely linen. It is a great place to base yourself for at least a week.
