This is a family owned and run B and B, around the block from the beach and a well stocked supermarket (read cheese, fruit, salted anchovies, wine, amaro, lemeoncello, pastry, bread, etc)...perfect for anyone with a car wanting a base to go to Taoromina, Messina, Savoca, Etna, Roccalumera, Aci Reale etc . But that's only half of the story...the other half is Salvatore and Alessandra Palazzo, the brother and sister who run this wonderful B and B. Breakfast is a pleasure, Sal's English is superb, his knowledge of the area and Sicily in general is that from an educated attorney turned B and B host, and can I mention he took three hours from his Saturday, drove us up to Savoca, where the Sicilian scenes from Godfather One were filmed, and walked around that town with us on a lovely sunny day, casually strolling the deserted streets of this beautiful hill town..engaging in the most delightful conversation, giving us one of the gifts that are not mentioned in guidebooks...the causal Sicilian stroll and gentle conversation on a beautiful sunny June day.. I can't say enough about Salvatore, you'll experience it yourself and also be charmed by his delightful sister Alessandra. I know the reader of this does not know me from a hole in the wall, but read all the other fine comments on this place...you will not regret it. Finally, one of the great things about this place is you can email Salvatore with a question or concern, and you'll get an informed response . Just a place that put's a smile on your face because of the people you're dealing with....the best.We are an older couple but this place is good for couples of any age. I can't say I did not like anything about this place...the only thing is that you will need a car to stay, but parking free and plentiful, since public transportation would not allow this town to be your base of trips. But with a car, the location is very good getting you easily onto the Autostrada or SS 114. Incidentally, I had read the conflicting good and bad stories about renting a car to drive in Sicily. We arrived in Catania, where we stayed for a few days, great place that city, and rented a car from AVIS located near the harbor, run by another salvatore...completely trustworthy man, classy operation, may not have auto transmission, check ahead, manual is fine except if you're not that experienced in some of the steep hillside villages, do some research, know a little about Italian road signs, etc go for the extra collision insurance for peace of mind, don't skimp money wise in this regard. I would also trust Salvatore's, of this B and B, advice or recommendations on a car rental if you wanted to rent a car from this area..
Feel like home, very nice. Good prices!
We had a very nice stay at Casa Famiani. The breakfast was freshly prepared by our host each morning and we enjoyed the best cappuccino and fruit salad for breakfast. The room was very clean and our host was very friendly. Would definitely stay at Casa Famiani again next time we visit Sicily. No
We found this b & b facility 100% plus in every way. It is a spotlessly clean and beautiful home in which to stay. The owner tends personally to the guests needs providing exactly what is requested for breakfast including the most delicious freshly squeezed freshly picked Blood Oranges. Nothing is too much trouble and he speaks fluent English. There is a small provisions shop within 50 meters. There was nothing detrimental in any way with this accommodation it was just fantastically good. Would we stay there again - yes we will it was a pleasure. You should definitely include this accommodation on your itinerary, very close to Taomina and Castelmola.
Everything excellent! With the ost kindly host of sicilie!
Excellent location, next to the beach and near restaurants small breakfast
Very clean, very friendly staff. No exit from the highway, quite difficult to find without a navigation system.
Very genial staff, cozy and clean rooms, excellent location. Buses and trains are just 50 meters from the hotel as the sea. Water on the public beach is clean, pebbled beach. At any time you can ask questions to the owner of hotel at which he will always be able to answer. It is very nice.First time stayed at the hotel B&B class and were satisfied.
The service was wonderful, very helpful. The beach is really close. Breakfast was great. Very nice bed and breakfast. Newly rennovated and well done. Would definately go back.
The location is fantastic, just by the sea, what's more very close to the bus stop (to Taormina) and railway station (Catania, Messina). The room and bathroom (big one) were very clean, the breakfast was rich, the owner very nice and helpful. We did like everything during our stay at Casa Famiani B&B
very helpful guest, very nice location!
