COMFORTABLE, ATMOSPHERIC AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The little house was perfect for us, a very comfortable couch to lounge on downstairs in the well lit 'basement' kitchen/living room, always a comfortable temperature and quiet due to the thick old walls. A spacious and atmospheric bedroom, plenty of storage space. Cleverly retains the original character of the fisherman's cottage but with quirky and welcoming modern decoration. Very nice to have bathrooms up and downstairs. Good quality bedlinen and towels, beach mats, umbrella and towels a very nice touch. Everything good quality and very clean. A very clever conversion on the first floor means that with both the windows open, there is a balcony, always light and with a little sea view, a lovely relaxing spot for morning coffee or evening wine. The sea is only a few seconds away around the corner, and you can drink your coffee or glass of wine there too, sitting on the wall and looking at the lovely view; only fishermen and the odd sunbather make it to this end of the beach, so it feels very peaceful. Carmen herself made the stay very easy from the start, kindly picking us up and dropping us back at the station, leaving us coffee and milk, beautiful strawberries, and a sack of gorgeous oranges from her garden when we left (and we got them back on the aircraft!) She generously offered us lifts to local beauty spots and provided great advice on where to eat (Carpe Diem), and left us with guides and timetables. The house is perfectly located at the very end of the sea front road which meant a lovely walk of 10 min any time we wanted to go to the local grocery shops (full of helpful and friendly locals and delicious Sicilian food) or for gelato or meals. Over the week, we really got to learn the rhythm of the local people, recognising the same old chaps at the cafe at 5.45pm, the children out with parents for gelato in the early evening, families dining at 9pm, and we have many lovely photos to remind us of the fantastic moonscapes over the sea. So easy to get around, you don't need a car; bus to Taormina (take in the stunning cliff views) trains to Syracuse, Santa Teresa (seafood), Catania, tour of Etna booked in Letojanni. This stay really exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay there again if we return to beautiful Sicily. Thank you Carmen!

PERFECT PLACE

  • 4 of 5
We had a perfect holiday in the Sailor House. Carmen, the owner, was very friendly and provided us with information about what to do and she told us about the best places to eat. The house is really perfect. It has everyting you need for a relaxing holiday. We also liked the interior of the house very much. It is so nicely furnished. We enjoyed the fact that the beach is so close from the house. Only 30 meters! Letojanni is also a very nice town. We highly recommend Carmens Sailor House! Thank you Carmen for your hospitality.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Sailor House for a week, and it truly was the best place to stay in Letojanni. The apartment is situated right by the beach at the end of the promenade so was very quiet and peaceful. The apartment itself is large and spread over 3 floors so it feels very spacious. It has 2 large, modern bathrooms, a fully kitted kitchen and double bedroom with lots of storage space. The balcony overlooks the sea, and the apartment in general had a lovely beach-feel to it, with lots of natural light.

Carmen was a delightful hostess, she kindly arranged for us to be collected from the airport and showed us all the main attractions. She also gave us some delicious Italian coffee and fruit and veg from her own garden, which was such a lovely touch.

If you are looking for a quiet beach holiday, away from the hustle and bustle of Taormina then Sailor House is definitely the place to stay. Letojanni itself has a wide variety of authentic Sicilian restaurants, beautiful beaches, and has a real local flavour to it.

AMAZING LITTLE GEM....

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing little gem of a house.
Great location for a relaxed sun holiday. The house is in perfect condition, nice size bedroom, shower room, kitchen is nice. Free wifi which is always good for planning your daily trips, right beside the beach which has lovely mountains in the backround which is great for paragliding. Which is really popular. Really quiet area which make it more special.
A long streched beach with nice restaurants little shops. Very close to tormina which has great beaches, bars, restaurants, nice little streets with great history.
This is a must see place when you come to scicly.

The owner of the house is such an amazing women with a great personality, really friendly, helpful. Provided fruit, coffee and most of all a list of great local restaurants which were outstanding.

Thank you for everything and i recommend everybody to stay in this great place.

Have a great summer Carmen,

Regards,

Mark x

ENJOYED OUR STAY

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 1,5 months in this house and enjoyed our stay. Carmen is an excellent landlady for sure - starting from the welcome dinner (fruits and wine and coffee) and providing us with the baby bed and seat and she was always available for answering any questions that we had. Every week cleaning and change of linen/towels, beach towels and umbrella at our disposal, kitchen equiped with everything we needed (and we mostly cooked at home). Air-conditioning worked fine (and you do need it in July). The only things that we didn't like was the lack of daylight in the house (we stayed indoors in the daytime when the sun is too hot) and cars/motos beeping all the time (as in the rest of Letojanni too).
Letojanni is a very-very nice place, lots of "prons" for a family vacation with kids (our son was only 6 months when we went there) - in June there were very few tourists and clean beaches, we loved ice cream (gelato) and granita in the tiny gelaterias, the tastiest pasta and pizza, little fish markets where we bought fresh fish in the mornings, fresh fruits and vegetables and a very unique place for this region - "Paradise" beachclub (only 30 metres from the house) with a swimmingpool, reastaurant, park (excellent landscape design) and very very friendly staff. People in Letojanni are very nice, openminded, relaxed - you feel like at home when you are there. We rented a car and explored Sicily - will be back one day for sure

A tourist can choose between free beaches and private shores, where is possible to find many bars, restaurants, attractions for children and adults, association for diving lessons and sea excursions. For people who are deeply in love with beach there are many opportunities to come back in the evening with a lot of activities: as having dinner or dancing (why not on the seashore whit the caress of a wave?). Inland: large number of night clubs in the area. Thanks to the mild climate, going to the beach you don't need to wait for summer: in the Letojanni the sun shines 350 day a year.
