We are a family composed by Salvo, Debora, Irene and Kira, a good dog of 8 years old. We have a good experience in tourism and because we like to welcome the guests, we create in our property, two comfortable apartments, far from chaotic places and at the same time close to the main naturalistic and cultural attractions of the East Sicily. Our guests could feel our typical Sicilian mood and could interface with the local culture, trying to live a direct experience.

Perfect family holiday
We had the best holiday in this lovely apartment. Salvo, Debora and Irene were the perfect hosts, generous and helpful. They made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble. The place is beautiful, perfect for children as it is safe and enclosed. Our boys loved riding Peppino the donkey and milking the goat and collecting eggs. Molly the family dog was a star!
The area was lovely, easy access to shops, bars, cafes, beach etc. Perfect to visit etna, Taormina and surrounding area. We loved the gorge at Alcantara.
We cannot wait to return next year! Thank you Debora, Salvo and Irene for such a wonderful time! X
Excellent hosts and very well located for sightsee
We had the most wonderful time staying with Salvo, Deborah and their beautiful daughter. They are truly the most welcoming and helpful hosts we have ever stayed with.
The property is located in a beautiful country setting with all the amenities needed for a pleasant stay. They provided us with some essential items as well as some lovely fresh produce from their home grown vegetable & here garden.
Our children were so welcomed and always made to feel involved by feeding the donkey or goats or collecting fresh eggs whenever we needed them.
They also surprised me with a beautiful Silicain cake for my birthday which they only found out about on the day.
Would highly recommend this property especially if you have children.
A marvellous stay for adults and children
Following a wonderful stay in San Vito Lo Capo we wanted a more country like location and found Debora and Salvo's house. We had a delightful stay in the middle of a colourful and peaceful house. Debora and Salvo were the best Sicilian guests we dreamt of. Above all we appreciated all the little plus provided by Debora and Salvo such as fresh potatoes from the garden, new beans, leaves of fresh organic salad... and the utmost attraction: Pepino the donkey and his friend Diana the goat! Salvo also took us for a big walk with Pepino and our 2 kids (3 and 6 years old) to the lovely village of Savoca where most of the Godfather shooted.
Don't hesitate, come to this lovely place and enjoy their lovely owners. Manuel & Laurine
The owners of the propert...
The owners of the property were very helpful, generous and made us feel very welcome.
They have good knowledge of local surroundings and places to visit + posted events and activities of interest every day.
We will definitely return at some point.
We stayed in Borgo Borghe...
We stayed in Borgo Borghese for a week only and we had a great time there. Borgo Borghese is runned by very friendly owners Salvatore and Debora with their little daughter Irene. Their dog Kyra was the best friend of our childeren from day no. one!
Our apartment was located in an old stable building which has been transformed recently in two separate appartments. Both apartments are located to a well paved courtyard. A big sward in the back of the garden leads you to the coop for free fresh eggs in the morning.
A sheltered terras with furniture offered us the ability to have breakfast, lunch and dinner outside. The complete interior of the apartment was brand new so everything was in perfect and clean condition!
The owners are very helpfull and invited us for an intimate barbecue joined by the other gasts.
Conclusion: Borgo Borghese is a perfect place to stay, especially with childeren. Looking to the location of Borgo Borghese, it is a perfect base for making day trips to the touristic places such as Catania, Mount Etna, Taormina, Isola Bella, Savoca etc.
Many thanks to the owners!
A little sicilian oasis
We spent two weeks with our 8-year-old daughter at Borgo Borghese and felt very comfortable there. The hosts are just wonderful - always approachable, nice and very helpful. Once they invited us to prepare pizzas in the outdoor oven together with the other two families who spent their holidays there. Another day we went for a walk through the mountain village of Savoca - together with the donkey ladies Gina and Catarina. Great! The apartments are lovingly furnished, each has its own terrace, but one can also use the big garden that has a large table, play equipment and a (small) swimming pool - see pictures (although even nicer in reality). We sat there very often ... We also enjoyed cooking with fresh vegetables from the garden, and of course our daughter loved the animals around: a pony, two donkeys, chickens, turkeys and the family dog Molly. We can highly recommend this place and would love to spend another holiday there soon. Two weeks are too short for Sicily ....
