This Bed and Breakfast has a number of charming rooms with balconies and views across the mountains and the old old town of Castiglione di Sicily.

We stayed between the 12th and 15th of April 2013, the hotel is situated in a very quiet picturesque village. It is the ideal location if you want a quiet and peaceful locality for your trip. A car is a must to travel around as the B&B is situated in a quite isolated area. All the staff are very friendly....

I thought that this place was dark and dingy. The rooms have dark wood panelling on the walls AND ceiling or have this crazy paving style brickwork. Breakfast was cheap and the opposite of fresh.The hosts are not the friendliest and do not speak English. The town itself is wonderful- great for exploring. About 18km from Mount Enta and also...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The diffuse hotel Santa Caterina is at the center of one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in eastern Sicily that go by the imposing Mount Etna, the beaches of Taormina and Giardini Naxos, without underestimating the extraordinary natural and Alcantara Gorges. On the slopes of Etna, a medieval town first inhabited by families of farmers, is the 'diffuse hotel Borgo Santa Caterina. The apartments have been expertly created by restoring the old buildings of 700, to best match the needs of tourism, with the recovery of 'originality, simplicity and beauty of the ancient rural Sicily. In the structure, you can still admire the cellars for storing wine, olive oil and nuts, the old barn and other structures once used by farmers. Today the old winery has become a lovely breakfast room, with characteristic terracotta floors and brick arches, where breakfast is served a rich breakfast buffet with a wide selection of local products. The rooms are all built in a rustic style with wooden beams, are all equipped with private bathroom and a balcony with panoramic views. The terraces are a true paradise thanks to native plants, the vintage jars, the beautiful landscape. Especially in the summer months, when you can make outdoor dining, you will always live a unique and magical. Santa Caterina is located 18 km from Taormina, 16 km from Giardini Naxos, 4 km from the Alcantara Gorge, 15 km from then located close to the main tourist itineraries in Sicily. ... more   less
