The owners was very friendly and helpful
Excellent breakfast with everything you would wish and a lot of Sicilian specialities.
Flavia that runs the business with her mother is the nicest person I have ever met. She treated us like royalty. Breakfast on a terrace with a million dollar view is something you don't see often in Italy - home made cakes and jams, fresh spremuta, lots of choices. I would stay there for the whole day. On top of it, you can enjoy apperitivo on that same terrace and watch the Etna during the sunset - doesn't get better in Taormina. We'll definitely return.
Casa Turchetti is located perfectly within the old city of Taormina, a block away from the main walking street, but was still very quiet. We walked out of the hotel and wandered in the old city every day. The hotel has the BEST view in the city, overlooking the bay. The breakfast buffet that was included with the room was huge and a great variety. Flavia and her mom were super helpful with tips, booking a reservation to a great restaurant. We would definitely come back!
Our stay at Casa Turchetti was an absolutely wonderful experience. The owners, Francesca and Pino, were the most gracious and friendly hosts. They were most welcoming and helpful during our entire stay. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully furnished. The 360 degree view from the Terrace was breathtaking. The buffet breakfast on the spacious Terrace was delicious; a fantastic selection of fruits, homemade breads, pastries, meats and cheeses. We highly recommend a stay at Casa Turchetti.
