About the property

'Borgo Borghese' guest house is located in Sant 'Alessio Siculo in the beautiful Val d' Agro just 10 km from Taormina. We are in the countryside at 600 m from the sea. Inside the property there are two buildings, one is the main house where the owners live and in the other one there are two independent apartments. Each flat is composed by a patio with garden table and chairs, a furnished and confortable kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a bedroom with a doublebed and a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed. Close to the flat there is a path that reach the beach from one side and the valley rom the other side. Each flat is suitable for 2/4 persons.

The sounds, smells and colors of the Sicilian countryside come to life here and it's easy to break out of chaos and stressful everyday life. The mild climate and the nearby cultural attractions make “ Borgo Borghese” a pleasant place where to spend your holiday.

Here you can discover the pleasure of spending long evenings sipping a glass of local wine enjoying the sing of crickets and cicadas, and at the same time the refreshing sea breeze.

The guests could taste the fresh and seasonal products from the owner's garden .

Ideal location for families or couples. Renting both apartments is perfect for groups of 8 persons.

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.

Excellent hosts and very well located for sightsee

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
