Before our trip to Italy this year (and my communications with FuFu (the owner) to make our reservations) my wife and I knew nothing about Sicily and even less about the Taormina area. And, now, we have had the wonderful experience of having spent 2 nights in the area, staying at a B&B right on the beach, and using the easy (and inexpensive) public bus transportation to the main town of Taormina (no need to drive). Da Concettina was everything that we had hoped that it would be. It was very clean with an en-suite shower and toilet (slightly small but totally functional). Our apartment had a comfortable bed (large enough for two people to sleep well), a refrigerator, TV, AC, and a balcony (Baia Blu Apartment). Our breakfasts were served downstairs at a street side table in front of the small Tabachi: owned by the family. The breakfasts were satisfying; meats, cheese, cereal, fresh bread, yogurt, juices, fruit, and coffee (of our choosing; cappuccino, espresso, or regular). FuFu provided the hostess interface during our visit and did a very good job of making us feel welcome and well cared for. We loved it and we took advantage of the nice private balcony of our apartment for afternoon cheese and wine breaks (the refrigerator was invaluable for storing our perishables). In addition to the amenities, the B&B is well located with easy access to a public bus that provides inexpensive transportation to and from Taormina and is within walking distance of many restaurants (for any lunch or dinner needs). We took the bus to Taormina twice one day (morning touring, back to the B&B for lunch, and then back again for dinner). The Taormina area was a short stop for us (we were heading to several areas of Sicily and were therefore on a limited time schedule). But, it was way more than that. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our time in Sicily. We are very happy that Taormina and Da Concettina was one of our choices!

We spent four nights here and found it a decent value and reasonably comfortable stay. Apartment largely as advertised excepting breakfast is not included. Very clean, but sheets and towels were quite worn and rough feeling and there were no extra linens. Though advertised as non smoking, there was an ashtray in the kitchen and the apartment smelled a bit as though cigarettes have been smoked there in the past. The bathroom had a strong sulfur like smell such that we kept the door closed. We stayed in the apartment on the top floor and the view was lovely- unfortunately the beach is covered with trash and this kept us from enjoying an afternoon swim or even a walk on the beach itself. Fufu advised us as to local restaurants and markets, all within walking distance. Apartment is equipped with Wifi and assorted guide books and maps that made planning all the easier. Easy access to highway and Taormina, though highway is under construction. If headed toward Catania or Etna, best to take the local road to Naxos where you can access the highway without being turned around only to backtrack and pay additional tolls. Street parking seems readily available in the off season and we found a free place to park every day we were there.

We (family of 4) stayed for 1 week at Fufu`s & Pinuccio and we felt like home:) We had the front sea view appartment with Breakfast and loved that we chose to stay there. The hosts are so welcoming, actually, Fufu came to greet us at the train station (we arrived from Cefalu), Fufu speaks French and english and just made things much easier to organise our days. The apartment is very clean with a kitchen and a washing machine (very practical), AC, TV. The Location is ideal right in front of the beach with an amazing view (exactly what you see in the picture), bus stop to go to Taormina (1. 10 Euros per adult, kids don`t pay) and it takes 15 min to get there, Bus Hop on Hop Off right there as well, markets, restaurants. The breakfast is very generous and delicious. Fufu takes the time to ask you what you`d like. WE were happy to be away from the very busy crowd of Taormina! Do not hesitate to stay there, it`s a great find! stayed from 06/25/2018 to 07/02/2018

I stayed here for a few days in October after a work trip to Catania. Cristina and Pinucchio were lovely and also very helpful – sending all the info I needed in advance, responding to messages, and then once I was there offering anything needed. I stayed on the first floor at the front of the building: two simple, very clean rooms with a little balcony looking out over the sea (great wifi too). Every morning I had breakfast in the cafe/bar downstairs -- they always gave it some nice touch -- and then walked across the road to the beach. Just perfect. There are many bars, restaurants, mini markets, etc, close by, Mazzeo / Letojanni is a very nice place to spend some time. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay in the Da Concettina apartement. Christina and Pinucchio were always very polite and helpful and were extra lovely to our daughter! There is this very cosy shop nearby, where you can get perfect breakfast. And the beach was of course also great!
