Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Sant'Alessio Siculo

'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.

About Debora Savoca

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.

Debora Savoca purchased this house in 1950

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

We stayed in Borgo Borghe...

  • 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!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Debora and Salvo' s house.

The apartment was very clean, very calm and cosy. We enjoyed our terrace for our meals.

Debora and Salvo have been very kind, very happy to guide us for our excursions and very helpful (as our car broke down). The kids enjoyed each day there, they quickly became friends with their daughter, happily helped Salvo with feeding the animals, picked up fresh eggs and fresh vegetables from the garden, rode bikes and had a lot of fun riding Peppino, their donkey.

It is very well located: you have the countryside, the mountains and the beach at the same time. And it is a short distance from a lot of touristic points: Taormina, Savoca, Etna, Syracuse....

We highly recommend their house and we hope to visit them again soon. Thank you for making our stay so memorable.

Tolle Wohnung mit sehr herzlichen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die Wohnung Mai 2016 für 4 Nächste gebucht und wurden trotz später Ankunft überaus herzlich von den zwei vermietern Debora und Salvo empfangen. Die nächsten Tage durfte unsere Tochter jeweils morgens und abends auf einem der zwei Esel Gina und Peppino reiten, und auch das tägliche Ausführen der Tiere auf den Weideplatz war ein täglichen Highlight, und das nicht nur für unsere Tochter. Auch die Versorgung der kleinen Ziege Stella mit dem Milchfläschchen zählte zu den täglichen Höhepunkten. Die überaus warmherzigen Vermieter versorgten uns täglich mit frischen Eiern aus dem eigenen Hühnerstall und auch über den selbst hergestellte Wein, den Limoncello und das Oliveröl aus eigenem Anbau und auch Zucchini aus dem eigenen Garten freuten wir uns sehr. Bei Ausflügen standen uns Debora und Salvo immer wieder gerne mit Rat und Tat hlifreich zur Seite, sodass wir schliesslich wehmütig wie noch nie am Ende eines Aufenthaltes weitergereist sind. Wir werden definitiv wiederkommen und dann freuen wir uns auch auf eine der ganztägigen Wanderungen mit den Eseln, die wir aus zeitlichen Gründen leider nicht unternehmen konnten.

Die Gegend bietet Ausflüge zum Ätna, nach Taormina oder Catania, schöne Bergdörfer rund um San Allesio Siculo (wo sich die Wohnung befindet) oder auch einfach Urlaub am Strand, der sich in ca. 1km Entfernung von der Wohnung befindet.

Die Wohnung (wir hatten die größere der drei Einzelwohnungen) war sauber und sehr geräumig, und alles ist vorhanden, was benötigt wird. Das WLAN ist schnell und über Sat-TV können auch deutsche Programme (ARD und ZDF) empfangen werden.

Die Anlage insgesamt verfügt über kostenlose Leihfahrräder und ist sehr kinderfreundlich eingerichtet. Man kann vom Kindersitz, über Kinderwagen, Fahrrad Helm usw. alles kostenlos ausleihen und auf dem Areal sind auch reichlich Spielmöglichkeiten für Kinder vorhanden, wie z.B. ein Sandkasten, Trampolin, Hängematte und diverse Kinder Fahrzeuge.

liebevoll eingerichtetete Wohnung, nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit 4 Erwachsenen die größere der 3 Ferienwohnungen (Rosa dei venti) eine Woche lang bewohnt. Gestaltung, Einrichtung und liebevolle Dekorierung einfach traumhaft - und noch um Welten schöner als auf den Fotos ersichtlich. Total liebe, nette und hilfsbereite Vermieterfamilie. Auch unsere Ankunft nach 23 Uhr (Anreise mit eigenem Fahrzeug und Fähre Genua-Palermo) war glücklicherweise kein Problem.

Tolle Lage mit großem eigenen Garten, schönem Innenhof, Esel, Ziegen, Hühner und ringsum weitere Gartenanlagen mit Zitronen-, Oliven- und Orangenbäumen. Wer das Auto auch gerne mal stehen läßt, ist auch zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten beim Bäcker (Bäckerin spricht deutsch), in ca. 15 - 20 Minuten auf einem schönen Schotter-Fußweg den Fluß entlang auch am Strand oder in der Stadtmitte mit allen Einkaufs- und Einkehrmöglichkeiten.

Die Stadt Sant' Alessio selbst ist jetzt nicht so schön, hat auch kein eigentliches Ortszentrum, aber in der Umgebung, vor allem in den Bergen, gibt es wirklich wunderschöne Ortschaften, die man wie Savoca auch per Wanderung zu Fuß erreichen kann. Der Vermieter Salvo hat etliche Wandertouren in der näheren Umgebung ausgekundschaftet und ist bei der Tourenplanung gerne behilflich. Auch Fahrräder stehen zur Verfügung.

Neben einem Pflichtbesuch in Taormina (teuer und viel zu viele Touristen) haben wir auch eine Nostalgie-Zugfahrt mit der Ferrovia Circumetnea rund um den Ätna sowie eine größere Wanderung durch Lava und über Nebenkrater des Ätna nahe Bronte gemacht. Denke, das war schöner und eindrucksvoller, als den teuren Massenaufmarsch auf dem Gipfel selbst mitzumachen.

Sowohl Sizilien als auch die Wohnung würden wir jederzeit wieder besuchen. Noch ein Tipp für Urlauber, die sich auch überlegen, mit eigenem Auto anzureisen: Fähre von Genua ist eine empfehlenswerte Alternative, sehr komfortabel fast auf Kreuzfahrtniveau und eigentlich gar nicht so teuer. Wegen oftmals maroder Straßen (Schlaglöcher, Wellen, Absenkungen oft ganzer Straßenteile auch auf Autobahnen - vor allem Autobahn Palermo Messina - Catania) solle das Fahrzeug genügend Bodenfreiheit aufweisen, um nicht öfter mal aufzusitzen.
